Role-Playing Games


Are you ready for Noctis to start showing up in more Final Fantasy games? It was kind of a given seeing how pretty much every series protagonist ends up in some smartphone or "all-stars" title at some point, but Final Fantasy...


Square Enix recently unveiled Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, the latest entry in the company's intergalactic role-playing game series, but details on the title have been pretty scarce.  We know it's in developm...


Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim is coming to Windows PC on April 28, XSEED announced today. The role-playing game comes from Nihon Falcom, the studio also known for The Legend of Heroes and the recently localized Brandish: T...


Blizzard's giving World of Warcraft players the opportunity to return to their old stomping grounds. Some of the dungeons that they honed their skills in will once again be playable thanks to the game's latest update. Ac...


In Dark Souls II, the speed with which weapons degrade is tied to the frame rate. That system wasn't an issue for those of us who played the sequel on last-generation consoles, but it has been an annoyance for PC, PS4, and Xb...


GungHo Online Entertainment America wants to know which Game Arts titles it should port to PC. Grandia. Lunar. Uhh, Thexder. The list goes on. Problem is, there's only enough room in this survey for one choice, so you've got ...


Dark Souls II's current-gen re-release Scholar of the First Sin found an opening in the Japanese sales charts and struck at an opportune moment. Most weeks, it would barely make a dent, but on this particular week, it wa...


Ever since the big Kickstarter boom of 2012, there's never been a short supply of developers looking to get their next title going through crowdfunding. From metroidvania action-RPG titles referencing the golden years of game...


Suikoden III appears to be on its way to PlayStation Network, as PEGI, Europe's videogame classification board, has issued a rating for Konami's acclaimed PlayStation 2 role-playing game.  Unlike the first pair of S...


You asked for this. I had my own problems with Yellowest Game of Forever (YGF) Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but it seemed the internet shared universal disdain for its forced boss fights that completely upended no-kill runs an...


Conrad lost a lot of his life to Pillars of Eternity when he reviewed it. Clearly the poor sap was playing it wrong because Jiseed beat the damn thing in less time than it takes to watch the newest watercooler TV episode. Sk...


Brandish: The Dark Revenant is out now across Europe, XSEED Games announced today. It's been more than half a decade since the classic role-playing game was originally remade on PlayStation Portable, but as I said in my revie...


How much time have we spent staring at that damned Bloodborne logo during the game's long loading screens? Actually, I'm not so sure I want to know. With save files totaling 50+ hours of play, my number would be gross. From S...


Poor European Atlus fans... They're always so upset. I wish I could brighten their day somehow. Oh, hey, what's this? A press release from NIS... Four Atlus titles coming to Europe? Hot damn! Apparently Shin Megami ...


Atlus USA just announced plans to localize Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal, a PlayStation Vita-exclusive role-playing game "for dungeon crawling fan-service devotees."   ...


With the tough-as-nails approach, cryptic story, and ethereal aesthetic, Souls games are a tough sell. But the quality of each game (and the talent of director Hidetaka Miyazaki) shines through, and Bloodborne is th...


If an image or video is tagged as 4K, yeah, I'm more than likely gonna click on it. Even if it's media showing a game at a level of graphical fidelity I can't possibly attain with my computer. Misery loves company, so please ...


Are you eagerly awaiting the launch of The Witcher 3 next month? Want to purchase a huge chunk of extra content before the game has even released? Well, if you do then we now know how much doing so will set you back. Accordin...


The folks behind Mars: War Logs, Of Orcs and Men, and Bound by Flame are working with Focus Home Interactive on yet another action role-playing game. When it releases next year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, The Technomancer will...


In this overview for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, protagonist Geralt and a woman sit on a unicorn in just their underwear and she uses "breathtaking magic" to dissolve her bra (quick, cut away!). It was at that point I shed som...


There was a Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning focused on Xenoblade Chronicles X. Thanks to some helpful translation, we know a few more details about the Dolls and mechs and cooperative play. One cool-sounding note is th...


[Spoilers for one of the main bosses in Bloodborne.] The next time you see a note left by another player in Bloodborne, consider rating it "fine" even if it's not all that insightful. As shown in this clip from Chief023, you...


Everyone knew that The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt would be a massive game. CD Projekt Red's been touting that since early development, and, frankly, it was just kind of assumed anyway. Sure, there will be plenty of non-integral...


Did you try out the beta for The Elder Scrolls Online and promptly dip out before the final game was actually out? You'll have a chance to jump in and see what the new subscription-free version is all about next weekend,...


Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is arriving sometime this summer in the US, with a solid "unknown" date in Europe -- good ol' Atlus. As you can probably tell it's a remake of the second game, much like The Mi...


Guild Wars 2's Heart of Thorns expansion is shaping up to be a great addition to the game, and soon, you'll be able to experience part of it ahead of schedule. Developer ArenaNet has announced that they will be holding a...


This showed up a few days ago in the ol' Destructoid inbox, and it sure has a look to it. I'm picking up a lot of Zelda in the above Kickstarter trailer, but also hints of Fable and Minecraft too. It's got floating islands (...


There was a bunch of news out of Level-5 this week, so you might have missed seeing Yo-Kai Watch Busters, an upcoming 3DS action game that's essentially a cutesy take on Ghostbusters through the lens of Japan. I mean, there'...


Nintendo has been dipping its toes in the water of DLC and free-to-play with mixed results. Although it has done a great job creating worthwhile add-ons that don't feel like rushed day-one cash grabs, the whole amiibo situati...


The customary development cycle for large-scale videogames in 2015 all but necessitates that the conclusion of working on a base title segues into working on downloadable content. That's just how it works now. And, that's wha...


Yesterday, we talked about From Software Director Hidetaka Miyazaki's favorite boss fight from the Souls series. Interestingly enough it was the Old Monk from Demon's Souls, an encounter that blurred the l...


It's a dreadful time to be a Level-5 fan. Or maybe a great one. Dunno. I suppose that all depends on where you exist on this Venn diagram: Level-5 announced Fantasy Life 2 for smartphones today, which probably disp...


Level-5 has big plans for the Yo-Kai Watch franchise beyond the localization of the first game in 2016. It's also gone and announced three more titles in the franchise last night, including Yo-Kai Watch 3, Yo-kai Watch:...


In case you haven't been paying attention, Level-5's Yo-Kai Watch franchise has been rocking it over in Japan since 2013 with over seven million units in sales. Rumors of a localization have been brewing for over a year ...


This is the first 15 minutes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, without the opening cinematic, but still with a couple minutes of cutscene followed by horse riding and monster smashing. I've yet to catch up on the series ahead of ...


This guy. This guy right here. It was late at night and I was already on edge in one of Bloodborne's unnerving Chalice Dungeons. I had hoped to quickly find the lever so I could proceed to the boss, get my ass kicked a few t...


Final Fantasy XV is a huge and expensive game, probably. Since its rebranding from Versus XIII to XV with a cool trailer -- holy crap, two years ago -- we've mostly been shown the area that would go on to be the demo included...


Mashups are often born purely for fanservice-related reasons, and as you can probably guess, the results are mixed. For instance, it would be tough for an RPG developer to make an action game based on two different puzzle pro...


YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin f...


Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still going strong, and Capcom is supporting it with plenty of free DLC. Capcom? Lots? Free DLC? I know, I know. This month you'll be able to pickup a Sonic the Hedgehog Palico skin, as well...
