Killzone 2

03-03-2009

The Killzone franchise has earned itself a place as one of gaming's more turbulent properties. All sorts of self-perpetuating controversies seem to spring up in its wake, often providing a disservice to the games themselves. ...

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom

11-22-2010

Some of you may recall my tragic love affair with Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, a game I found utterly spellbinding but, sadly, failed to resonate with the rest of the world. It shall forever be doomed to obscurity, but it'...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

11-09-2010

With 2008’s Burnout Paradise, Criterion Games solidified its spot as the king of fast-paced, arcade-style racing. So when Electronic Arts decided it was ready to take the Need for Speed series back to its earl...

Prince of Persia

12-02-2008

We’ve all died at some point. Hit by a brown sedan while crossing the street, shot in the face by a drug dealer with bad skin, fell into a lava pit, crushed by a rampaging wild horse, vital organs consumed by a skinless...

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

10-12-2009

In a big-budget videogame, most of the memorable moments (alliteration!) occur during the game’s extended action sequences or over-the-top boss battles. And there is nothing wrong with that! I will always love my battle...

<!-- td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;} --> The first three Ratchet and Clank games are still great and now there's one more way to play (or replay) them. The European PlayStation Blog annou...

Dragon's Crown

07-31-2013

There's a new Dragon's Crown Amazon figure coming courtesy of Empty and it's some how more fan service-y than the Sorceress. She's straight up pole dancing on her axe for no reason. You can find more shots here. It's better t...

Metal Gear Solid 4

[Update: Andriasang has confirmed that the August patch will grant full install support.] It looks like the cat is out of the bag regarding the August Metal Gear Solid 4 trophy patch, but that's not all that's coming in terms...

Okami HD

He also dropped off a title we have been waiting to get our hands on, Valkyria Chronicles. Today we will be flying into this game for the first time. Join us at 4-8PM PST on Justin.Tv/Destructoid.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

12-11-2009

No weapons? Wii waggle? And a "re-imagining" of the first Silent Hill game is what they're calling this? The combination sounds like Silent Hill: My Worst Nightmare, and I don't mean that in a good way. Boy, was I ever wrong....

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

11-19-2011

Parents can be really awesome when it comes to cake. I remember for a birthday long ago, my mom made me a prehistoric landscape cake populated by dinosaurs, rough terrain, boulders, trees, and an erupting volcano. I thought ...

Metroid Prime: Trilogy

09-07-2009

Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

01-27-2010

At the time of this writing, I have just finished No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle after a 16-hour marathon play through, with occasional breaks to nap and go to the bathroom. This is not the best way to go about playing ...

How classy can one video game theme be? Just ask the Triforce Quartet, the dapper gentlemen captured performing the Super Smash Bros. Brawl theme here. It's sweet, sweet music to my ears, and I surmise it will be to you...

Kirby's Epic Yarn

10-17-2010

When Kirby's Epic Yarn was announced, many people thought Nintendo was stringing us along, that the game would be poorly stitched together or otherwise patchy. A 2D platformer with a cute gimmick runs the risk of being threadbare, but it would appear that developer Good Feel has it all sewn up. You might worry that the bad yarn puns are a bit woolly, but I refuse to change my material.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has removed a map from its servers after Muslim gamers complained (in fairness, quite politely) of offense. The problem lies in two paintings hung in a bathroom in the Favela map, containing the...

Rhythm Heaven Fever

02-13-2012

What does it take for a game to be universally enjoyable? That's the question most game developers would love to be able to answer, but it's easier said than done. My guess is that it comes down to exploiting the medium for w...
