BioShock

08-17-2007

It's a novel concept to take some of the most revered console and PC games from less than a decade ago and put them on phones. Seriously, how have we come this far this fast?! The devices that sit in our pockets and are prima...

Stranglehold

09-07-2007

So, here’s the thing: The majority of gamers are already decided on whether or not they’re going to purchase Stranglehold. If anything, the question of whether or not to buy seems like a no-brainer: if you’...

Virtua Fighter 5 Online

11-08-2007

When Virtua Fighter 5 hit the PlayStation 3 earlier this year, everyone loved it. On a system lacking in quality software, it was hailed as the second coming of Christ (albeit, Christ with a wicked left hook and lightning fas...

Rock Band

Next week's Rock Band music update is a mix classic 80s songs with a side of Hoobastank. The DLC offers Cutting Crew's 1986 hit "(I Just) Died In Your Arms," Hoobastank's "Crawling in the Dark," and Whitesnake's "Still of the...

N+

02-27-2008

If you haven't played the original N, then that's great. Well, it's not great, since you've essentially missed one of the greatest flash games ever created, but it's great that you'll be able to go into N+, the game's update...

Dark Sector

03-26-2008

I’m not sure what Dark Sector’s lead Hayden Tenno thought he was getting into when he signed up for the “elite black-ops agent” program, but it’s hard to feel bad for this guy. Sent by his agency...

Braid

08-11-2008

Braid is a game that has generated a lot of press before its Xbox Live Arcade release, be it for its unique mechanics, gorgeous watercolor graphics or controversial price point. The brainchild of independent game developer Jo...

Rock Band 2

09-15-2008

I picked up my first guitar when I was in elementary school, and I asked my father -- an amateur guitarist who strummed along along to David Bowie vinyl records for fun -- to teach me a basic chord. It wasn’t 15 minutes...

Street Fighter IV

02-17-2009

Editor's note: In an internal staff email us old-timers were just laughing about the absurdity of this super fanboy article I wrote back in 2007 voicing my disgust with the redesigned Street Fighter. I've since grown accustom...

Droplitz

07-06-2009

On the cusp of a number of PC summer sales, Indie Royale has released another mostly-fantastic indie game compilation. Known as the The Mayhem Bundle, players will get five indie titles that sufficiently "bring the pain" thr...

Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

07-18-2009

Let’s rewind to E3 2009. I’m inside LucasArts’ conference room. I’m a few minutes early for the Star Wars: The Old Republic presentation. They have food and drink in both corners of the entrance. I&rsq...

Splosion Man

07-20-2009

Twisted Pixel pushed its way onto the Xbox LIVE Arcade scene earlier this year with The Maw. An original title based on an original IP, we thought it was pretty damned impressive for the studio's first effort. Its sophomore e...

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...

Shadow Complex

08-19-2009

Chair Entertainment's Shadow Complex is out today on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 MS Points, or 15 American dollars. It's a "Metroidvania"-style side-scroller, heavily influenced by Super Metroid. You blow a lot of things up, an...

Colin McRae: Dirt 2

09-20-2009

When Codemasters announced DiRT 2, I was very happy to see that it still had Colin McRae's name on it. I found the first game to be "okay," and after playing the demo for this second installment, it seemed we had a great raci...

Forza Motorsport 3

10-13-2009

Racing games are not for everybody. Well, the old ones were, but time went by, we slowly got away from the simplicity of just getting over the finish line first. Now we're at a point where we're controlling high-end simulatio...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

11-12-2009

The biggest game of the year is finally here. Infinity Ward created one of the most popular, well-crafted and subsequently imitated first-person-shooter games in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and a sequel was inevitable. Tw...

Left 4 Dead 2

11-17-2009

It's sad that Australian gamers are only now getting an uncensored version of Left 4 Dead 2, but at least we finally have some closure. After resubmitting the cooperative zombie shooter for classification, Valve is now able t...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigator - Fatal Conspiracy

12-10-2009

Last year’s CSI: Deadly Intent was a bit of an ugly duckling, and something many of us would easily scoff at if we saw it in a store. Yet even though it was just a CSI version of Ace Attorney with a crime lab -- witho...

Mass Effect 2

Independent music enthusiasts (and especially those who follow game music) are pretty familiar with Bandcamp as a platform to get affordable music while giving the creators a greater cut than through traditional means. Perhap...

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

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,...

Dead to Rights: Retribution

Green Day: Rock Band

06-08-2010

After a number of misses from its competition, last year Harmonix and MTV Games proved that it was possible to do a band-specific music game "right." The Beatles: Rock Band was an incredible journey through the band's career,...
