The latest issues of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog have heavily focused on the shift in leadership of Sonic's home of New Mobotropolis over to the evil wizard Ixis Naugus. With a smooth tongue, he was able to take over the thro... more
Namco Bandai's upcoming 3DS multi-company mashup, Project X Zone, is an absolute treat, and is one of the best things I've played at Tokyo Game Show 2012. It's too bad that it has yet to be announced for North America. After ... more
I took a few minutes today at Tokyo Game Show to have a peek at how the HD re-release of the first two installments in the Yakuza series are shaping up. It's looking good, folks. Crisp and sexy, I think players will... more
I thought I was done with kart racers, but after playing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at E3, I think I'm up for at least one more rodeo. It's extremely fun, easy to control, and more colorful than a bag of Jelly B... more

Nights Into Dreams, the 1996 Sega Saturn game that was re-released on PS2 in Japan, at long last will finally see a new iteration in North America. I got a chance to get my hands on this shiny high definition version at this... more
I suppose that while we wait for "The Big One," we might as well keep up to speed (heh!) with the Blue Blur and his current battle against a much more deliberate Dr. Eggman in the the Archie Sonic comics.
To recap, Eggman rec... more
I'm still reeling from this morning's Mega Man shenanigans. I can at least take comfort in knowing that some companies still give a damn about the little blue dude. Like Archie Comics, for example...

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is already looking prett... more
Sega announced this week that Phantasy Star Online 2 is headed to the United States and Europe come 2013. This is great news for fans of the series, especially for those who thought that the spinoff sequels deviated too much ... more
I was a Sega child, so I was always in the "Sonic > Mario" camp. I've also been a Mega Man diehard (big surprise, right?) since his very first game. So while schoolyard kiddies spoke passionately of the rivalry between Mar... more
The Blue Blur has had his ups and downs, but on the whole, he's a remarkable icon with a rich history extending across two decades. Earlier this year, Sega and French videogame book publisher Pix'n Love -- responsible for sev... more

Switching gears from Mega Man, let's talk about Archie's other, much bigger videogame comic, Sonic the Hedgehog. This one might interest some of you non-Sonic comic fans, as it offers clues towards the upcoming Sonic the Hedg... more
There seems to be a certain stigma in gaming, as of late, that Japanese developers have lost their touch when it comes to creating experiences that appeal as much to western gamer as they do to the Japanese. Once dominant ... more

It looks like Binary Domain will try to keep players engaged in its multiplayer modes, as pre-ordering at GameStop will net you the Multiplayer Pack. This pack gives you an exclusive multiplayer map "Outside High-rise, Upper ... more

So far, I've enjoyed everything I've played of Sonic Generations, which has only made me suspicious. I was trying to work out what the "catch" was, and news from SEGA has finally revealed it ... Silver the c*nting Hedgehog is... more

Sonic Heroes is a game that I shuriken'd against a wall the very first day I bought it. I threw it so hard that it broke into two pieces and I am yet to feel a shred of regret. I mean, it only cost six quid, but even so, my c... more
SEGA has kindly tossed up a bunch of Sonic Generations 3DS screens for your wretched judgment. A few of these made it into Hamza's hands-on impressions article, but there are a bunch of fresh ones too. The images all revolve ... more
Sonic Generations has been confirmed for a November 1 release date, hoping to squeak out before the competition in a month packed ludicrously full of Triple-A titles. To celebrate, here's a humble offering of new screenshots.... more

Tucked away on Sega of America's Flickr photostream is a trio of Super Monkey Ball screen grabs, all tagged with "PS Vita." As far as I'm a... more
Sega's Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure is a title that we've seen a bit of from Japan recently, but now it has been announced exclusively for the 3DS.
Set in a 3D Paris, players go on a rhythmic adventur... more
Sega has put up some new screenshots for Binary Domain, and it's looking as washed-out as ever. I really hope they put some bolder colors in before this game releases, because it's looking so very unremarkable. I don't like t... more

A new bunch of Shinobi screenshots have dripped down from Gamescom and now we're posting them on the Internet, along with about 35,000 other blogs. Our images look better though, because of Destructoid Graphix.
The scre... more

Here are a bunch of screenshots for Sonic Generations. Don't get too excited -- they're for the "City Escape" level which we already knew about. In fact, some of these screens aren't new at all (they're in the preview I just ... more
Binary Domain may be the most grey game I have ever seen. There's some interesting design at play, especially with the game's various robots, but the actual scenery is as drab as they come. It's not even a pleasant grey (such... more
Rise of Nightmare is a decidedly M-rated game, there's no question about that. The first-person Kinect-exclusive action title has you waving your arms around to slaughter zombies and ghouls in a variety of obscene ways -- wit... more
