3D Cartoon Land: Safari totally looks like that one game

You know that game with plumbers in it? That one where you rescue a princess from a giant turtle? It looks like some sleazy iOS developers have up and decided to develop a game "inspired" by the aforementioned title -- and th...

Sonic-inspired Freedom Planet tickles my platforming itch

Who doesn't love a good clone? As much flak as people like to give certain games for playing too much like other games, its nice to see a well-established style or formula applied to a new world with original characters from...

Mole Kart, the amazingly shameless iOS Mario Kart ripoff

Ripoff games on iOS are nothing new, with no shortage of developers willing to trade their integrity for a handfull of dollars. Mole Kart is an almost beautiful in its utter, unapologetic, shamelessness.  As you can see...

Cute Mega Man copycat Rokko Chan gets OST and art book

Last week, I shared Rokko Chan, a most adorable Mega Man clone that swapped the Blue Bomber for the Blue Bombette. It's a great game in its own right, sporting the same high polish, incredible pixel art, and catchy jams as it...

Rokko Chan is incredible Mega Man gaming goodness

The Christmas surprises keep coming! We should count ourselves so lucky! I've repeated this over and over -- I'm sure you're all quite tired of hearing my pissing and moaning by now -- but this has not been a good year for Me...

I Can't Believe It's Not Zelda! photo
I Can't Believe It's Not Zelda!
by Allistair Pinsof

All this week, Destructoid will be posting Zelda-themed features to celebrate this weekend's release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It's Zelda week!

Can you ignore a Zelda release? I can't. Sure, I've joined the "Ugh, another entry with the same formula?" army before, but after four years of speculation, I can't very well ignore Skyward Sword.

There is something so enjoyable about the Zelda formula and watching it slowly evolve from title to title. It's not strange to feel nostalgic for a certain Zelda because of its systems, art style, navigation, or particular world and story. Over the years, developers have taken notice of this and applied Nintendo's magic formula to their own games.

This is a list of the greatest Zelda knock-offs of all time. Whether you want an NES-style Zelda or an epic adventure in HD, many options are available to ease the anticipation for Skyward Sword. Let's explore beyond Hyrule for a short while longer.

This Cloud cosplay is so good I thought it was a render

I don't make it a habit of posting cosplay here, because there's lots of good game-related cosplay out there, and after all there's Japanator if you want to look at cosplay. The thing is though, I was browsing through my RSS ...

FIFA 08, Need for Speed Pro Street, and the Sims coming to the Genesis ... kinda

Unfortunately for our Latin American brethren, the sub-Amazonian games industry has always been a bit mystical and nefarious. Prices are exorbitant, piracy is rampant, and, for better or worse, the black market seems to be th...

Hands on: Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

Capcom made it very clear that they are the company to watch this millennium. They even scorned the rest of the industry for not taking chances and simply relying on sequels to keep the money rolling in. It's extremely ir...

According to Subway, gamers are fat and will die prematurely

It seems that lovable fata*s-turned-skinny-white-guy Jared isn't cutting it anymore. He's tired, played out. Sooo 2006, as it were. Without Jared, how is Subway supposed to sell sandwiches? By playing on people's ...

Yes, someone did another top ten list with girl gamers, hurrah

/sarcasmThere's nothing more useless than a top 10 list. Well, that is except a top 10 list that claims to have the hottest girl gamers who actually play games. Who cares. Honestly. Girls play games and some are pretty, w...

Buried games better left buried: Tattoo Assassins

Oh, Mortal Kombat. Though you were pretty much created as a cheap American answer to the Street Fighter craze of the 90s, you became so much more. You were a landmark title in the game industry: You gave us beautiful fatali...

Our own Robert Summa got you hot and sweaty a few days ago by posting a two minute video of the game (and netted 50 comments!). But why should you really be excited to play Assassin's Creed? Because I say so. Five times.
