Lollipop Chainsaw

To clarify, it's not Juliet's decapitated head - it's her boyfriend Nick's, though it may as well be hers. If you can tie your lover's head to a chain and swing him around in circles repeatedly pummeling any and all zom...

Lollipop Chainsaw Special Edition includes Jessica Nigri?

// Kyle MacGregor
It seems like every new release these days has a special collector's edition of one form or another: paperweight dragons, underpants, sex dolls, whatever. The point is, every game absolutely must have one -- regardless ...

Here's an utterly ridiculous Lollipop Chainsaw trailer


Apr 13
// Jim Sterling
Would you like to watch just under three minutes of complete silliness? Of course you do! This new trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw explains some of the ways in which Juliet Starling can decimate the undead horde, and while it starts quite sensibly, things get too barmy for words by the end.  I think we've praised this game enough lately, so just watch the video. It says everything it needs to.

Juliet cleans off zombie bits in Lollipop Chainsaw video


Apr 05
// Brett Zeidler
Zombies are messy. Like, really messy. Their fragile bodies are falling apart and full of blood, so I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Juliet gets covered in zombie bits after a day of slaying them with her chainsaw. She ...

Urine and Yamaoka on the Lollipop Chainsaw soundtrack

A lot of people call Suda 51 (creator of Lollipop Chainsaw) the Quentin Tarantino of videogames. While I see some similarities there, I don't think the analogy is quite right. Quentin Tarantino is big on "real talk...

Lollipop Chainsaw will drown Japan in borderline nudity


Mar 08

Lollipop Chainsaw is looking hot for a number of reasons, but if you're mostly looking forward to perving over its saucy protagonist, you're going to be very jealous of Japan. Suda 51's home country has already gotten some "s...

Meet Swan in a new Lollipop Chainsaw trailer


Jan 12
// Jim Sterling
The deliciously ridiculous Lollipop Chainsaw has a new trailer up today, introducing us to the "goth geek" bad guy, Swan. He wants to destroy the world with zombies. Obviously.  As usual, there's plenty of silly dialog and undead carving to go around in this video. The game itself is out sometime this year, and I am fairly certain it's going to be great fun.

Destructoid's most wanted Xbox 360 games of 2012

Jan 09 // Hamza CTZ Aziz
Max Payne 3 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) Developer: Rockstar VancouverPublisher: Rockstar GamesRelease: March 2012 Max Payne's life has been on a downward spiral every since the events of the original game. Max Payne 3 sees our hero trying to start anew as a body guard for a wealthy family far away from New York City. Like everything in Max's life though, things eventually spin out of control and sees Max waging a one-man war once again. I, like many Max Payne fans, was worried where Rockstar was taking the series initially but after getting a first-hand look I can say that this is the Max Payne you know and love. Rockstar is staying true to the fundamentals of the series, right down to the revamped bullet-time mechanics. Lollipop Chainsaw (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) Developer: Grasshopper ManufacturePublisher: Warner Bros Interactive (US, EU) / Kadokawa Games (JP)Release: March 2012 Suda 51 and the folks at Grasshoper Manufacture are some of my favorite people in this industry. They constantly put out weird, off the wall titles that always appeals to my inner lunatic. So you can understand why I'm so excited for Lollipop Chainsaw. You play as Juliet Starling, a cheerleading zombie hunter who's taking on zombie rock and roll lords and their zombie army that have infested San Romero High School. Your main weapon is a chainsaw and your boyfriend is a decapitated head that's hanging around your waist throughout the game. And that's only scratching the surface of what we can expect from Lollipop Chainsaw. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) Developer: Platinum GamesPublisher: KonamiRelease: TBA 2012 While I've always appreciated the Metal Gear Solid series, I've had a hard time delving into the stealth-action series. I love being bombarded by constant action and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance looks like it will deliver just what I need. A large part of why I'm even more excited for what Metal Gear Rising has transformed into is because of Platinum Games's background. They know how to make a great action game, but their stories have always been on the weak side. With Hideo Kojima on board with his fantastic (and ridiculous) storytelling expertise, Revengeance is basically a match made in heaven. Honorable mentions: The Darkness II, Tomb Raider, Halo 4, BioShock Infinite, Dishonored, Retro City Rampage, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)Developer: Irrational GamesPublisher: 2K GamesRelease: TBA 2012 BioShock represented a turning point for me, personally. It was the game that convinced me of the urgency with which I needed to invest in an Xbox 360 back in 2007, the final huge nail in the coffin of my wallet. Today, the BioShock titles remain some of the finest examples of a game which places as much emphasis on why people are shooting each other as the shooting itself. It's a good time to have a socially-conscious game of this nature. With civil unrest breaking out in the wake of the financial crises and growing wealth inequality that threatens to squeeze a middle class right out of existence, BioShock Infinite's tale of ultra-nationalists being fought by a fractured rebellion which seems to have forgotten the reasons it was fighting in the first place could not be more apt. Toss all of it into a floating symbol of American exceptionalism and you certainly have my attention. Make my playable character a disgraced member of the Pinkerton Detective Agency? Sold. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (Xbox 360)Developer: From SoftwarePublisher: CapcomRelease: TBA 2012 I genuinely love the Kinect system and have managed to maintain a high level of optimism for it, but the games designed typically suffer from a severe lack of complexity. Developers are still testing the boundaries, seeing what design implementations work with full-body motion controls and which do not. For my money, I have long maintained that the solution lies in combining the control options of Kinect with the traditional controller.  Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor attempts just that. With the interior control panel of your mech accessed by gestures and the actual piloting of the walker with a controller, it's the among the first serious attempts at Kinect integration that we'll have seen so far. With From Software at the helm, the title has a lot of potential which I hope will help to change the perception that Kinect games aren't for the hardcore. Borderlands 2  (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)Developer: Gearbox SoftwarePublisher: 2K GamesRelease: TBA 2012  In 2009, I played no game more than I played Borderlands. Nightly sessions took place in my household for months following release, with surges of play surrounding the arrival of DLC. It's the only first-person shooter that I have been able to get my fiancée to pick up and, even if it had been terrible, that fact alone would still warrant a day-one purchase of the sequel. Thankfully, Borderlands 2 is shaping up to be superior to the original in every way. We're getting new character classes with new skill trees, tons of new weapons and new environments fleshing out the world of Pandora. And last, but not least, it's a story penned by former Destructoid Features Editor "Reverend" Anthony Burch. We'll try not to hold that against it. Honorable Mentions: Retro City Rampage, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Darksiders II, Lollipop Chainsaw   Additional staff picks for the Xbox 360: Kyle MacGregor: Diabolical Pitch, Lollipop Chainsaw, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Jonathan Ross: Tomb Raider, Street Fighter x Tekken Andrew Kauz: Max Payne 3, Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2 Jonathan Holmes: Retro City Rampage, Fez, Runner 2 Allistair Pinsof: Sine Mora, Max Payne 3 Max Scoville: Hitman: Absolution, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Retro City Rampage, Fez Maurice Tan: Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Mass Effect 3, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Assassin's Creed IIISean Daisy: Dragon's Dogma, BioShock Infinite, Halo 4 Chad Concelmo: Fez, Darksiders 2, BioShock Infinite Josh Tolentino: XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Mass Effect 3, Hawken Tara Long: Borderlands 2, BioShock Infinite, The Darkness 2Samit Sarkar: Max Payne 3, Spec Ops: The Line, BioShock Infinite, Fez
