Sigh, Puzzle & Dragons now has Angry Birds dungeons

The plague that is Angry Birds is infecting everything. Even the cocaine-coated fusion of Pokemon and Bejeweled that is Puzzle & Dragons cannot resist the avian epidemic. The feverishly popular role-playing...

Mobile slot machine RPG Slot Revolution has strong hooks photo
Mobile slot machine RPG Slot Revolution has strong hooks
by Dale North

I tried Konami's latest money eater this morning. Their iOS, Android, and Kindle title, Slot Revolution, doesn't have the best name. It doesn't do a good job of describing this free-to-play slot machine-based dungeon crawling RPG, but I could tell that it had role-playing roots from the screenshots, so I gave it a spin.

A spin, folks.

Review: Nvidia Shield  photo
Review: Nvidia Shield
by Jim Sterling

[Disclosure: Nvidia has provided Destructoid with a number of computers for PC game review purposes in the past. If you feel that may make our reviews of any of their products "biased" or "paid off," you are welcome to.]

The number of handheld devices hitting the market are becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of, a situation made all the more overwhelming by the continued erosion of the boundary between smartphones, tablets, gaming devices, and machines built solely for the purposes of showing your friends that "Blurred Lines" video. 

Several oddities have cropped up in this maelstrom of technology, one of which is the Nvidia Shield. Joining the Razer Edge in the "almost shockingly niche" category, this Android-powered, Steam-streaming, undoubtedly powerful system is heavy, expensive, and focused on a unique brand of gamer -- a cocktail of concerns that has led to many a cynical attitude toward it. 

I was cynical. Hopeful, as I am for all new gadgets, but cynical nonetheless. Having spent a good deal of time with the Nvidia Shield, however, I absolutely love the thing. It's still heavy, it's still expensive, and it's certainly going to appeal to a select few. Those few, however, will adore it.

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest merchandise f*cking exists

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest may well be the sleaziest, scummiest exploitation of a beloved videogame franchise this side of bootlegged Pikachu dolls. The "game" exists solely to leech cash from the "player," but Square Eni...

Infinity Blade Dungeons officially cancelled

iOS games aren't popular around these parts, I know, but I was personally quite looking forward to Infinity Blade Dungeons. I enjoy the mainstay games in the series, and the idea of a loot-nabbin' dungeon crawler in its unive...
