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 ... read feature

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... read feature

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. read feature

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... read feature

Tanooki tails are all the rage in Super Mario 3D Land


Oct 06
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... read

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... read feature

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... read feature

TGS: Hands-on with Tekken 3D Prime Edition for 3DS


Sep 14
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... read

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... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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. read feature

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... read feature

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 ... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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 ... read feature

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... read feature

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. read feature

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. ... read feature

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 ... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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 ... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature

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... read feature
