The King of Fighters XII

07-28-2009

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The old Dickens passage might never have applied so well to a videogame as it does the release of SNK Playmore and Ignition Entertainment's KOF XII. It comes to us hot on t...

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

02-23-2010

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has been anxiously anticipated by many members of the Destructoid staff. I am not one of those people. Despite repeatedly hearing the name followed by words of praise or excitement,...

The Whispered World

05-12-2010

The instant I saw The Whispered World I knew it was one of those games that I was going to have to play. I'm a sucker for point-and-click adventures, and the promise of hand-drawn animations and backgrounds sucked me in lik...

Tournament of Legends

07-04-2010

You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage, Eternal C...

Toribash

07-20-2010

Do you know Toribash? It has existed as a free-to-play game for a while now on Mac and PC, and it even came to WiiWare several years ago. The turn-based, muscle micromanagement fighter starring Vectorman's cousins may now ga...

Tales of Elastic Boy - Mission 1

09-21-2010

When I first saw the trailer for Tales of Elastic Boy, my mind jumped to LocoRoco. With his rounded body and rabbit-ear antennae, the main character was a dead ringer for a bubbly, bouncy LocoRoco. With a fascination for one ...

Time Crisis: Razing Storm

10-25-2010

Those who think videogame reviewers have it easy are, to be honest, mostly correct. Playing videogames all day and getting paid to tell people what one thinks is a pretty sweet deal. Then along comes a game like Razing Storm,...

The Undergarden

11-15-2010

Describing The UnderGarden is a very tricky prospect, because every description you could give automatically runs the risk of turning potential customers away. It's a slow-paced game, with no narrative to speak of, and your o...

The Shoot

11-19-2010

If there's one thing The Shoot does really well, it's make the player wish that each level was its own videogame. The artistic style is just so fantastic that levels feel like they would have been an awesome title in its own ...

Two Worlds II

01-31-2011

Topware Interactive is releasing Two Worlds II: Velvet Game of the Year Edition on October 18 and yes, there is velvet.  The velvet covers the entire box -- black for PC and Mac, red for Xbox 360 and PS3 -- along with me...

Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll

02-16-2011

Omega Force is best known for the Dynasty Warriors series and its related hack n' slash spin-offs, due mostly to the fact that it's made a billion of them. In fact, the last truly unique game Omega Force made was the rather g...

Test Drive Unlimited 2

02-25-2011

I'm extremely happy that the racing genre seems to be picking up again.  In 2010 we had some spectacular titles like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Gran Turismo 5 so I couldn't wait to see what was in store for 2011.&n...

Total War: Shogun 2

03-29-2011

The "Gold Edition" repackaging of Total War: Shogun 2 with the game's two expansions, Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai, is now available for purchase in North America and will find its way to Europe and Australia t...

The Tomb Raider Trilogy

04-04-2011

The Tomb Raider series has become a rather inscrutable collage of mountains and breasts in my mind. Its multiple sequels and franchise "reboots" have turned the franchise into a vague soup where I find it increasingly difficu...

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

04-06-2011

Ska Studios has a pretty well-documented allegiance to publishing its games through the Xbox Live Arcade platform. The company's 2011 hit The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile has been an exclusive to the Microsoft service until...

Three Trees

04-08-2011

Here's a little indie game that caught my eye the other day. It was made in 11 hours during the '360 iDev GameJam' and later found its way to Kongregate and the Apple app store. As cheap little iOS games go, Three Trees is on...

The Next BIG Thing

04-29-2011

The latest game from Runaway creators Pendulo Studios is a throwback to a bygone era in more ways than one. It's a classic point-and-click adventure game in the tradition of the glory days of the '90s. It's also a bit of a ...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

05-23-2011

With The Witcher 3 not to far off and looking pretty darn impressive, now would be a good time to catch up on the earlier games in the series. Steam has you covered by making both The Witcher and its sequel, The Witcher 2: As...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

06-17-2011

Okay, Taylor Davis is officially a badass. Late last year we saw her dressed as Sheik and playing a couple of the ocarina songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. She took the simple melodies and transformed them...

Trenched

06-21-2011

Double Fine announced today that their alternate-history mech shooter, Trenched, will officially be seeing its name changed to Iron Brigade on November 30th when it releases in Europe on Xbox Live Arcade. Finally. With a...

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

06-23-2011

Before the review begins, I feel it's my duty to warn anybody who considers purchasing this -- there's barely any mention of the Moon at all. In fact, the Moon appears in the campaign's end credits more than it appears in the game itself.  Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a big lie.

The Adventures of Shuggy

06-27-2011

Though it's not going to appeal to all of you, I quite liked The Adventures of Shuggy. It sounds as if very few people played the puzzle platformer on Xbox Live Arcade, which makes me hopeful that the brand new PC version ca...

The Asskickers

08-09-2011

Any game bold enough to be titled The Asskickers -- which would have been an awesomely apt and uncomfortably juvenile name for Stallone’s ensemble action flick The Expendables -- better be able to back up its brash atti...

Toy Soldiers: Cold War

08-15-2011

The original Toy Soldiers was one of the first games with the now-standard 1200 Microsoft Points price tag, and to date it's still one of the select few games that was actually worth its price. With its "take control" twist o...

Tropico 4

09-05-2011

It's cold as hell in my office. I'm under a blanket, and I have my feet tucked under my dog. I'm chilled straight through and my nose is running.  But things look quite the opposite in these new Tropico 4 Gold Edition sc...
