Hachiemon is not nearly as weird as it looks. Natsume and Namco unleashed this GBA game onto the people of Japan back in 2003, perhaps as their response to Kirby. The character, however, was created in 1995 as the mascot for ...
These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (proba...

While publishing our initial report on Dungeon Travelers 2, a PlayStation Vita role-playing game based on an erotic visual novel, I wondered what sort of concessions Atlus would have to make to localize such a game for wester...
Skydiving out of a plane as a cat in Grand Theft Auto V, just as it should be. Modder Alexander Blade has come out with Script Hook V, a tool that allows players to tamper with all sorts of elements in the game through an ea...
For those rare Xbox One owners that still haven't experienced Titanfall, Best Buy is running a sale that certainly limits your excuses for not owning the game. As of now, the game is available for only $7.99. Seems like a good value to me, but I suppose if you hate fun, then it isn't. Titanfall [Best Buy]
Mario Kart 8 feels fresh again and not just because of the fabulous new tracks added in this week's Animal Crossing-themed DLC Pack 2. Nintendo also unleashed the humbling 200cc class in a free update for the game. We saw the...

Earlier this month, Toylogic accidentally released Happy Wars for Xbox One. The cartoonish medieval multiplayer action game was pulled from Xbox Live, but not before some people managed to download and play it. Doing so locke...
Not much to say this week, in a rush and a bunch of other stuffs. Go play some games and have a great weekend everyone!
Ever since I, as a grown man, got back into watching Japanese television shows targeted at seven-year-olds, I've wanted to see a proper, well-done videogame inspired by Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Kamen Rider and other...
Golfing is fantastic. Reckless cart driving, endless jokes about "ball washers," and your friend puking in the rough on the 14th hole because he's somehow on, like, his 14th beer. Swat a tiny sphere a few hundred feet every ...
There's a special Nintendo Direct going on right now for Xenoblade Chronicles X. As someone who has paid little attention thus far, I have no idea what's happening despite the Direct's best attempts at setting the stage and l...
Naoto's character trailer for Persona 4: Dancing All Night shows a sexier side of everyone's second favorite Persona 4 girl. The trailer shows off her new-found dancing skills, but more importantly it gives us anot...

I was flipping through the various storefronts of the PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One this week, encountering random issues throughout, and suddenly wondered if anyone actually liked them. We often take them for granted, but if ther...
Natsume is a pretty open developer/publisher, as evidenced by CeeCee's Corner, a tumblr blog from the community manager that sheds some light on some of the practices of the current market. A lot of people have poked them abo...
"Playing it safe" is rarely regarded as hang-gliding through explosions while helicopters try to gun you down. But that perfect storm of circumstances aptly describes Just Cause 3's box art. How else could you explain Square ...
You've heard the rumblings of the Silver Mario amiibo for weeks now. It was leaked a while ago, and one person even claims to own it. Thanks to some more hints from retail employees, it's looking pretty real, and it is likely...
Rocs are giant birds of prey in The Witcher's universe, and in a way, they can be likened to the Giant Squid in our universe. According to the game's wiki, it's extremely rare to actually see one alive, as they usually only ...
Super Smash Bros. had some issues at launch with people getting banned for using certain characters, and with the debut of the Mewtwo DLC came another problem. The glitch lied in playing Mewtwo offline, which led the game to ...

Have you been enjoying my news posts on Destructoid so far? Well hold on to your undercrackers because after this paragraph you sure as fuck won't: I loved Brink. I pre-ordered it, I played it to death, I got a character to ...
Who'd have ever thought selling mods which include other people's work would be a bad idea? It turns out the very first paid Skyrim mod on the Steam Workshop has been removed after accusations that it contained work from othe...
