DS


The Rayman Origins booth at the EB Games Expo on Australia's Gold Coast was an area I thought would be largely ignored. Given the hours people were waiting to play Battlefield 3 or merely watch a section of The Elder Scrolls ...


In the long history of the Mario Kart franchise, fans have been divided on which entry is the best. Many maintain that nothing will ever exceed the sheer fun of the original Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo, while othe...


I’m no Dale North when it comes to my love of racing games, but that doesn't mean I don't fancy the occasional white-knuckle thrill ride. NASCAR games in the past have tended to be more about bumping and rubbing and making left turns rather than the adrenaline inducing action of say the Burnout series. That changes this fall when NASCAR Unleashed crashes its way onto store shelves.


When one thinks of great games on the Nintendo DS, it is hard not to think about any one of the Professor Layton games. Level-5's brilliantly charming and whimsical puzzle-solving adventure series is all but synonymous...


Super Mario 3D Land is a hybrid sort of affair that has beautifully merged the gameplay style of a 3D Mario game into the style of an old school Mario-like adventure. The levels are open, open enough to make it see...


When I got the chance to demo The Adventures of Tintin: The Game, the first question I asked is if Snowy is a playable character. If you’ve watched the cartoons or read the comics, you probably know that Snowy is a...


You know what had me the most excited for the 3DS when it was first announced? Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. I skipped the game the first time around and was looking forward to eating snakes and stuff in 3D. Then the Met...


Tekken! It's coming to the 3DS as well and holy crap it looks gorgeous, even in 3D! All the action on the top screen for Tekken 3D Prime Edition is done in 60 frames per second so the action looks very fluid and crisp. A...


SEGA's booth was fairly lavish this year, with huge signs, flashy lights, ladies dressed like Colonial Marines, and ... one fairly quiet man, wandering around with a DS. He was completely nondescript, fairly easy to miss, and...


Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (DQMJ2) is the upcoming monster hunting role-playing game for the DS. The player assumes the role of a child who quite possibly aspires to follow in the footsteps of Michael Vick as he captures...


Renegade Kid's Destineer-published Nintendo DS title, ATV Wild Ride, hit the market at an odd time earlier this year. With the Nintendo 3DS just ready to launch and promising more everything than the current handheld, the sol...


Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby Kirby! Yes, I'm excited for a new Kirby game, but the reason I just repeated the pink little suckball's name is because that's exactly how many Kirbys you'll be controlling in Kirby Mass Attack. An evil villain has split Kirby up into ten pieces, and you need to find a way to put Kirby back together as one.


During the EA Summer showcase, the newest entry to the Harry Potter videogame series was available to check out just before it becomes available this Tuesday. In this final chapter of the story, you must save the world and yo...


My love for Shinobi is palpable. I had one of those six-in-one Genesis cartridges as a kid, and The Revenge of Shinobi was one of the most played titles on the collection. I was never a big fan of the series' move to 3D last ...


Unless you’ve been living in a cave on the moon with your fingers in your ears, you’re probably aware that LEGO has had a consistent presence in the video game world for the last decade. As someone who grew up pla...


PAX East is over, which makes me sad. Thankfully, the show went out on a good note, at least for me. The last game I got to play at the show was Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D. If you've been following a long, you'll know that...


It probably won’t make it to the back of the game's box, but you get to fly on the back of a bat in Rango: The Videogame. Yes, Behaviour Interactive’s upcoming title based on the animated Gore Verbinski film will ...


DualPenSports is made up seven sport mini-games which are soccer, boxing, archery, basketball, baseball, skiiing and power gliding. The key difference with this game from other sport game collections is that you'll need to u...


Galaga is turning 30 years old this year and to celebrate, Namco Bandai is putting out Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions for the 3DS. Pac-Man Tilt is a sidescrolling platformer while Galaga 3D Impact is a first-person 3D space shooter. Probably the last thing you were expecting for both those games, right? Well here's something else I wasn't expecting: I hated the 3D effect for Galaga 3D Impact.


First off, I really love that I'm Destructoid's go-to guy for details on upcoming JRPGs. People have contacted me via AIM, Twitter, Facebook, private message and email in the past asking for early verdicts on upcoming games. ...


Sure, the DS is choked with cute platformers -- we all already know that. Still, when I hear that a game is coming our way that not appeal to my retro sensibilities, but also is being headed up by the same folks who took the ...


In 2007, developer Renegade Kid screwed with our heads and terrified us on the go with its first-person shooter, Dementium: The Ward for the Nintendo DS. Its next handheld title, Moon, stuck to the first-person formula with t...


I planned on having this post up last week. I figured that playing through ten hours or so of the new Pokémon game would be enough to give you some impressions of how the game turned out. I was wrong on two counts. Fir...


I am not usually a fan of hunting games. Of course, shooting things is usually a fun activity, but not so much when the things you are shooting don't put up a fight. I'm always up for new twists on worn-out tropes though, so ...


The Nintendo64 had some great games, but they were always few and far between, especially in the early days. That was a big problem for Nintendo's last cartridge-based console, until Rare came out with GoldenEye 007, that is...


Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for the DS was, quite frankly, a surprise. While the console versions of Shattered Dimensions are a great opportunity to see all the variations of the webbed wonder, they were, at the end of t...


Listen up nerds, it’s time to take off your robes and wizard hats for a second ‘cause there’s a new game in town, and it answers to the name of Battle vs. Chess. If you’ve ever found yourself wonderin...


Yes, this is a real thing. GoldenEye on the Wii is something you've probably already heard about. We expected to see it here at an Activision preview event, but we didn't expect to see a DS game. At least not yet. It was here...


The original plan was to group a quick look of MySims SkyHeroes along with the rest of the Sims previews. After playing it though, I feel like this game deserves some proper attention, especially with the hardcore audience we...


Sims, Sims, Sims! Electronic Arts loves to come out with Sims games and they had plenty on hand at a recent press event. There were a total of seven different versions of The Sims 3 games in fact, each for a different platfor...


For those not in the know, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is the latest game to come from the mind of Shu Takumi, the creator of the extremely popular Ace Attorney series for the DS. Both games share much in common, with murd...


I've been playing preview code of Atlus' upcoming DS RPG Etrian Odyssey III for a week or so now, but I haven't made it very far into the game. I've played enough to give some early impressions, but maybe not enough for a ful...


Playing Monopoly on a game console is something you may have done before, but Monopoly Streets takes the game experience and makes it fully interactive. You're done with the little pawns, plastic houses and that paper money y...


The Dragon Quest series has been around since the 8-bit days with a formula that's remained largely unchanged, that is until Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky was released. Developer Level-5 brought the series excl...


Toy Story 3 is also coming to the PSP and DS and each version offers something different. On the PSP side, you'll get to play as Woody, Buzz or Jessie through scenes from the movie. There will also be various mini-games and ...


Fans of things that are good should be pleased to learn that Capcom is bringing Ōkamiden, the Nintendo DS follow-up to the PlayStation 2/Wii title Ōkami, to North America. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, as ...


First off, know that I'm a seasoned piano player. I've been playing for over 25 years now, and I still play almost daily. I play part-time in a band or two, record often, and have even taught a few people to play piano. But ...


I had waited for weeks. Weeks. It was a pretty cold and miserable night in late October 2000, but the homework was done and I was ready. You see, weeks back I had filled out a Nintendo Power pull-out, dropped two or three $20...


The Ace Attorney series is exceptionally fun. But with four games under its belt that all play very much the same way, I'm open to something new. Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth is new alright, and look...


Shin Megami Tensei. Some hear the name and wonder what language is being spoken. Others, like myself, hear the name and smile. To me, the name is an indicator that I'll be welcomed back into a dark setting, where demon summon...
