Imagination is the only escape

03-10-2008

Some gamers have chosen to call it "creepy" and "disgusting." Media outlets, those even belonging to the videogame press itself, have misrepresented it as "Holocaust DS" or a "Nazi torture game." The truth of the matter is th...

Flower, Sun, and Rain

09-03-2009

So we're a little late with this review of Flower, Sun and Rain, but cut us some slack, interpreting and attempting to understand a Suda51 game takes some time (plus some patience). Since we're a bit late, and it's damn near ...


 

Style Savvy

[Editor's Note: We're not just a (rad) news site -- we also publish opinions/editorials from our community & employees like this one, though be aware it may not jive with the opinions of Destructoid as a whole, or how our...

Lego Rock Band

11-30-2009

A year ago, the music game genre was at its peak. Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour had recently launched to rave reviews, and looking back, it appears that the developers of those games -- Harmonix and Neversoft, respec...

Mega Man Zero Collection

06-10-2010

It sucks for us that neither the DSi nor the DSi XL has a GBA slot, but that omission could make for a profit deal for crafty publishers. Now they can re-release their old GBA games to die-hard fans who are willing to pay to ...

Soul of Darkness

07-12-2010

If gaming were a religion, it would vary in practice and observance from person to person. In my case, I'd model it closely to the faith with which I have the most experience, Catholicism. I'd recognize my own Holy Trinity of...

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

07-15-2010

The Dragon Quest series is gaming's greatest immovable object. While many franchises can be accused of repetition, no series has ever remained so close to the tree it fell from as this legendary collection of role-playing gam...

BlayzBloo: Super Melee Brawlers Battle Royale

08-09-2010

Despite being only two games deep, the BlazBlue series has a rabid fanbase, and with every rabid fanbase comes spin-offs. That's not necessarily a bad thing. If a top-notch series can branch out into new genres, while retaini...


 

WarioWare D.I.Y.

08-20-2010

Let's see now...there have been ten main games, one side story, and five handheld titles in the classic Mega Man series. Dr. Wily builds one or two fortresses for each outing, and they always crumble to the ground in the end...

G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den

08-26-2010

Japan can be a real ball hog sometimes. A bazillion awesome-looking games come out each year, yet only a handful get localized. Don't even get me started on the surplus of legacy software that appears on their download servic...


 

G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den 2

09-06-2010

Less than two weeks ago, I reviewed G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den, a two-dollar microgame that is part of a Japanese series of budget downloadables. It was a decent game that could have used a little more zest, which is why ...

Sonic Colors

11-14-2010

While Sonic the Hedgehog has become quite famous for a string of terrible games over the past ten years, that's only really true in terms of home console output. Hyperbole states that we haven't had a good Sonic game since So...

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!

11-16-2010

[UPDATE] Whew! Just played through an additional 130 levels! Review updated! There was a time when I was desperate for more Mario vs. Donkey Kong. In the beginning, the series marked the return of the "real" Donkey Kong games...

11-16-2010

On today's Nintendo Direct, brand new battle engine footage from upcoming Monolith Soft Wii U game X was shown. Aside from the uninterrupted gameplay, Nintendo didn't give much more for us to go on other than that the battle...

Michael Jackson: The Experience

12-10-2010

There's nothing like a celebrity death to make some free money for those left behind, and Ubisoft was the lucky company with the videogame rights after Michael Jackson popped off this mortal coil. Michael Jackson: The Experie...

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

01-07-2011

Yes, I know, this review is ridiculously late. But ... for fans of the first two Golden Sun games on the Game Boy Advance that have been looking forward to this anticipated, yet quietly-released Nintendo DS sequel, this revie...

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

01-11-2011

Murder mysterious are a dime a dozen, but it’s not every day the gumshoe is investigating his own death from beyond the grave. Then again, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective -- the latest game by Ace Attorney creator Shu...

ATV Wild Ride

02-03-2011

With ATV Wild Ride, Renegade Kid veers wildly from territory its best known for, be it the nightmarish halls of a mental hospital in Dementium, or the sci-fi action of Moon. But the developer feels right at home with its latest, delivering one of the best racer offerings on Nintendo’s handheld to date.

Giana Sisters DS

03-07-2011

Oh, snap. Seriously? A little over a year ago, I played through an import copy of Giana Sisters DS and posted my impressions as part of my Off-Brand Games series. I had assumed that the likelihood of the game releasing States...


 

Professor Layton and the Curious Village

04-05-2011

We know the Layton series is a moneymaker -- the first four DS games have shipped over 11 million units globally. Nonetheless, every time one of the games hits a milestone, I feel like throwing a party. Just this morning, Lev...

Okamiden

If you attended PAX East this year (I didn't, darnit!), you might have noticed some adorable Okamiden swag for sale. Well, Capcom has taken the remaining items from that first-run batch and made them available through their o...

Mighty Milky Way

05-08-2011

With the launch of the 3DS eShop upon us, magical unicorn factory WayForward decided to bless DSiWare with a parting gift! Billed as a spiritual sequel to 2009's Mighty Flip Champs!, details on Mighty Milky Way have otherwise...


 

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords

06-07-2011

This year is The Legend of Zelda's 25th anniversary, and to celebrate, Nintendo is putting out some old and new games that you can pay money for. Yes, celebrate is another word for "excuse to make money." But wait! Some goodw...


 

Art Style: Pictobits

06-11-2011

What got me through E3 this past week was, surprisingly enough, my 3DS. No, I didn't get Ocarina of Time 3D early, and while cool in its own right, one can only extract so much joy from the new Pokedex 3D app. (Those 3D model...


 

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

06-15-2011

So, how about that Takashi Miike-directed Phoenix Wright film? Excited? Nervous? In the meantime, why not enjoy some catchy show tunes based on everyone's favorite courtroom drama game series? I don't know how we missed this...
