LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a ton of fun

I am so jealous of kids growing up this day and age. They have the coolest videogame consoles, the Internet, iPads, and now LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Combining Marvel, one of the hottest movie proprieties right now (and not to mention some ...

 
Marvel Super Heroes
Just when you thought they were out of good licenses to adapt for LEGO videogames, they pull one back in. Among others, we've explored the adventures of Indiana Jones, the far away galaxy of Star Wars, and the hallowed halls ...   read

As great as the Professor Layton games are (they are really great!), the last four released on the Nintendo DS have been very similar. While the art direction, puzzle-solving gameplay, and surprisingly emotional stories have ...   read

If you’ve been reading Destructoid with any regularity, you know that we love us some Adventure Time. I side quite happily with my Dtoid kin, having been enamored with the program for some time now. Perhaps it was meant...   read

LEGO Lord of the Rings is doing a number of things to really differentiate itself from prior LEGO titles. The biggest change is that this one provides a more seamless, open world design to the exploration, akin to that of Skyrim.    read

It has been two years since a small-town kid defeated the mighty Team Plasma, and in that time, the region of Unova as well as its people have changed. Bianca, no longer unsure of herself, has settled in nicely as an assistan...   read

Hardware redesigns are increasingly common in our industry. Consoles, handhelds, you name it -- there are plenty of variations on this generation's systems. Nintendo is no stranger to this, with a solid four versions of their...   read

I haven't made a final decision as to what my favorite game at E3 2012 is yet, but Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS is right up there. When DreamRift's game was announced a couple of months ago, I was shocked. Inste...   read

I doubt it surprises anyone, but my excitement for Unchained Blades stems from my love of the game’s soundtrack, which was released last year. While it features a main theme by Nobuo Uematsu that sounds a lot like Iron ...   read

Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS is not playable on the show floor at E3. Let me say that again: Paper Mario: Sticker Star is not playable. WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?! Of all the games here at E3, I was really hoping to ge...   read

I am exceptionally wary of ridiculously titled games. They have a tendency to be exceptionally awful. Still, I made an attempt to swallow my prejudice and dig into the latest installment in the Castlevania series.  I pla...   read

Seriously, just watch the video that's made up of all in-game footage. It feels so good knowing there's an open world Spider-Man game once again. Hopefully the end products ends up being worth it. What I played was awesome, ...   read

Did you know that last year's Skylanders: Spryo's Adventure had the best single-year sales of any new children's IP ever in America? I figured the game would do well, but not to such a crazy extent! Obviously, Activision has ...   read

The Spider-Man videogames have been a roller coaster of real fun highs and "Why did I just waste $60 on this?" lows. Thankfully, The Amazing Spider-Man is somewhere in the "real fun highs" category, at least based on what I ...   read

Batman's back (in LEGO form) and he brought his friends along for sequel in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Not just Robin, though. Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are among the blocky heroes, and The Joker and ...   read

Preview: Pokemon Conquest

I made the harrowing decision to pass on Pokémon Black and White when they released, which I never expected to do, as an avid fan of Pokémon. It’s still a choice that doesn’t sit quite well with me (I think Smuglea...

Few developers have a large enough catalog of praised franchises that they can make entire games featuring a variety of their own iconic characters. Nintendo is obviously the leading company that has made a habit of doing th...   read

As a big fan of the old school Thundercats, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the new Thundercats series is. Namco Bandai is working on a simple beat 'em up for the DS that ties in with the new series and it's not that b...   read

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance has Jeff Bridges. Boom. End of preview. ... Fine, I'll tell you more about the rest of the game.   read

It goes without saying that Nintendo has a lot riding on the revival of their winged warrior in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It’s the first major, first-party release of the year for the thriving 3DS and something even more...   read

This is the third year in a row that 2K Sports is holding its Perfect Game Challenge for its MLB 2K series. They're changing the format this time, but previously, the first person to throw a verified perfect game would win $1...   read

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor was like a dream come true for me. One of my most-loved game makers took my favorite genre (strategy role-playing) and fused it with the demon collecting fun and turn-based battles of other ...   read

"I can't believe I'm actually flying!" These are some of the first words that Nintendo's, once forgotten hero, Pit utters in disbelief during the opening moments of Kid Icarus: Uprising -- his long awaited return to the foref...   read

During the eShop preview event, Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis was on hand to demonstrate the 3DS iteration of the revered, renowned, and hard-as-balls VVVVVV. I can confirm here officially - the game is still as insanely difficult and as infuriatingly addictive as ever. As for new additions to the VVVVVV gameplay structure, well...   read

One of the most exciting eShop games I had a chance to preview last week wasn't actually a game. It was an application and a continuation of a fan favorite DS homebrew app that never carried over to DSiWare (though it did mak...   read

During a session with some of Nintendo's first- and third-party 3DS eShop game developers yesterday, I got a chance to check out the (incredibly promising) future of the eShop. I first got some hands-on time with WayForward's...   read

The Nintendo 3DS is a system built around two simple concepts: portable 3D and dual-screen gaming. Unfortunately, the latter usually finds itself lent to making our experiences less intrusive by acting as a placeholder for ma...   read

It goes without saying that Nintendo’s handheld needs games. As the system has been out for roughly eight months. one genre -- more than others -- that could use a little kick on the butt is the one that found such an i...   read

Much to the dismay of a certain contingent of fans, the Resident Evil series has slowly moved away from its survival-horror roots and towards a more action-oriented style as of late. Those pining for the days of claustrophobi...   read

September 6, 2011. A day that will live in infamy. Nubageddon. The day Nintendo announced the “Slide Pad Expansion,” the second nub’s cradle attachment. Now officially known as the Circle Pad Pro, presumably because…it’s for pros (?), I got to play a videogame using this incredibly divisive piece of plastic.   read
