Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax Ultimate Boy

10-15-2012

Half-Minute Hero was arguably one of the PlayStation Portable's best games. As a deconstruction of the role-playing genre, it poked fun at its peers by condensing the core experience of an 80+ hour epic down to just thir...

4PM

07-09-2014

If you're like me, then you'll have staggered out of a pub, wandered home, and then tried to fill in the blanks but, like a favorite song of mine says, it's just the best bits that are colored in. I can't honestly say there's...

7 Grand Steps, Step 1 - What Ancients Begat

06-25-2013

Board game, wheel of fortune, a vast narrative spanning thousands of years -- 7 Grand Steps is a strange beast. Through simple slot machine mechanics, choose-your-own-adventure scenarios, and eventually actual strategy, one b...

A City Sleeps

[Disclosure: Nick Chester, who is currently employed at Harmonix, previously worked at Destructoid. As always, no relationships, personal or professional, were factored into the review.] It's a weird time to be Harmonix. It i...

A Game of Dwarves

11-05-2012

I don't recall exactly when management games became unpopular. One day we were mastering the systems of "Theme" this or "Tycoon" that, and almost certainly dabbling in the field of dungeon administration, but then suddenly we...

A Game of Thrones: Genesis

10-15-2011

While fans of George R R Martin's epic fantasy saga, A Song of Ice and Fire, are used to putting up with the author's "it will be done when it's done" attitude, elsewhere in the franchise it's a lot more prolific. Hot on the ...

A New Beginning: Final Cut

01-04-2013

I've just saved the planet, and I couldn't be less enthused about it. A New Beginning is a self-styled eco-thriller with a spot of time travel and science fiction thrown in for good measure. It launched in Europe a couple of ...

A Valley Without Wind

05-06-2012

A Valley Without Wind has always been a tantalizing prospect with noble ideas, held back by a troubled visual presentation. Having gone through multiple artistic shifts, the final product still looks hastily cobbled together,...

Aaru's Awakening

02-24-2015

The challenging, hand-drawn Aaru's Awakening is now available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 for the same $15 it launched at on PC. For PlayStation Plus subscribers, though, it's free off the bat. Conrad reviewed it positively, calling it, "A fine game which presents a grueling challenge...perfect for the player who thinks 2D platform games today just aren't difficult enough."

Abobo's Big Adventure

03-11-2012

The NES era was a special time for a lot of us. Many of the staff here at Dtoid will always have a certain attachment to the period, myself included. Abobo's Big Adventure is a tribute to all those who grew up with the gaming gods of old. This free Flash game is quite fun and funny, definitely well worth a trip down memory lane.

Abyss Odyssey

07-15-2014

One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while ...

Ace of Spades

12-20-2012

Prior to being picked up by Jagex and released to a wider audience on Steam, Ace of Spades had an alpha build that was available as a free download. While both versions carry the same name, it was the earlier Ace of Spades wi...

Achron

08-29-2011

Time travel in fiction comes in two varieties. One is the sort of unexplained, mysterious force that you accept and don't question for the sake of entertainment, like in The Time Traveler's Wife or Back to the Future. The o...

Afterfall: InSanity Extended Edition

04-09-2013

I'll suffer through many things if the promise of a post-apocalyptic horror is on the cards. To that end, I've lived through such atrocities as I Am Omega, and once really tried to like Hardware. A game like Afterfall: I...

Age of Empires II HD Edition

04-17-2013

Two years later, Age of Empires II HD is still going strong. So strong that, according to producer Ryan Chaply, more people have spent 50+ hours with the game than there are actual humans living in Little Rock, Arkansas (~200...

AirBuccaneers

12-17-2012

Pirates and Vikings have a lot of things in common. Pillaging, raiding, exploration, and adventure -- these are their shared loves. One could be forgiven for assuming that they might even be able to get along, but that is mos...

AirMech

01-15-2013

Way back through the mists of time -- 1990 to be precise -- fans of the relatively new RTS genre were treated to what is sometimes retroactively considered to be one of the world's first MOBAs, Herzog Zwei. Players commanded ...

Alea Jacta Est

10-25-2012

Out of the many phrases attributed to the father of comb-overs, Julius Caesar, "Alea iacta est" (The die has been cast) is undoubtedly the most appropriate for something that feels like one of the most complicated board games...

Alice: Madness Returns

06-16-2011

From the creative and somewhat disturbing mind of American McGee comes the reveal for his latest title; a twisted take on the classic tale of Dorothy in OZombie. Since the beginning of May, the OZombie Facebook group has been...

Alien Rage

09-25-2013

I didn't get very far into Alien Rage, I'm going to admit that right off the bat. It was not, however, for the want of trying. There are parts in Alien Rage where the game decides that working properly is for losers, so it do...

Alien: Isolation

10-03-2014

In what was probably an alternate ending to Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley looked down and noticed that her arms were fire. How she went through decades of life without realizing that her limbs were constant chemical combus...

amnesia: a machine for pigs

09-09-2013

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was a drastic departure from the much loved survival horror darling Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Its writer, Dan Pinchbeck, recently spoke with Kill Screen about the bizarre sequel and some things th...

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Excuse the weird phrasing there, but as Frictional Games writes in its latest report on Amnesia: The Dark Descent, the number of units sold for a digitally distributed game is "actually really hard to pin down." Excluding the...

Analogue: A Hate Story

02-14-2012

Visual novels are cool games, but if there's a pet peeve I've developed with the genre lately, it's that most of them are PC-based. Visual Novels, dating sims, and the like are the perfect type of game to play on mobile and t...

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures

09-26-2013

Back in 2013, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures was released for the PC. It was received fairly well, and within the next year plans for a Wii U and 3DS version were announced. Unfortunately, they still haven't seen the l...
