Seven minute Cyber Sleuth trailer is not your dad's Digimon

People who watched Digimon in their youth are old enough to be parents. Damn millennial parents and their Digimon-playing children.  Some good music, a Summer Wars-looking digital world (yes, Hosoda, I know), a detailed...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary photo
Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary
by Josh Tolentino

No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" in Japanese.

Whatever personal peculiarities led the team at Nippon Ichi to title their new game this way seem to extend to the game's design as well. htoL#NiQ marches to its own rhythm, and ends up being two things at once: a fascinating work of minimalism, and a needlessly difficult ordeal best enjoyed only by the most masochistic of flagellants.

Covers for Yumi's Odd Odyssey offer some slight variations

There's an important rule in the entertainment industry: Know your audience. For the PS Vita version of Yumi's Odd Odyssey set to arrive in April in Japan, it appears this philosophy is being followed pretty closely. See if you can spot what the difference might be between the Nintendo 3DS version and the "ahem" mature Vita version. It might take you a while, so be patient. [Via Twitter]

Review: Unmechanical: Extended photo
Review: Unmechanical: Extended
by Darren Nakamura

Unmechanical has been available on iOS and PC for a few years now, but we at Destructoid have sadly neglected it for all that time. I have even personally looked at emails, thought "that looks neat," and then put it in the back of my mind until it was no longer relevant. It's time to rectify that.

Unmechanical: Extended is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It features the same three-hour experience as before, with an additional episode that adds another half hour or so of helicopter robot puzzle gameplay.
