The more a game has the word "new" printed on the back of its game case, the better the chances are that the game inside will feel older than time itself. Mario Kart 7 has the word "new" printed on the back of its game case n... read
Always bet on Mario. It's a given that Nintendo rarely fails when dealing with its mustachioed mascot, and there's no denying that when a Nintendo system is in trouble, everybody's favorite plumber can bail it out.
The ... read
Cave Story is a modern classic. Sadly, many people still haven't ever played it, even though it's been released on WiiWare, DSiWare, and the iTunes App store. That's probably partly due to its retro look. It's hard to generat... read
Growing up in the nineties, I gained a certain affinity for contrived plastic gimmicks designed to be collected by compulsive children. The likes of Mini Boglins, Monster in My Pocket, and GoGo's Crazy Bones made up a huge pa... read
Videogames owe a lot to Aliens. The movie classic gave us the archetypal space marine, then pitted them against a nest full of drooling Xenomorphs, the titular Aliens that have served as a blueprint for so many videogame enem... read
Kirby's Epic Yarn was a triumph, but there's no denying that Kirby's true home is on a handheld platform. It's where he debuted and it's where he's had his biggest adventures. Kirby Mass Attack brings Kirby home, both in term... read
Mum was the word from Nintendo on the growing nightmare known as Nubageddon at their 3DS press event today. But those observant folks over at Andriasang noted an update to Big N's hardware site containing juicy info on the pe... read
Earlier this week, Nintendo revealed to the world its plans to release a peripheral for the 3DS that adds a second analog nub to the handheld. The reactions to this news were generally mixed; the pervading opinions seemed to... read
The N64 is my least favorite console of all time, but I still feel the need to own one, mostly for Star Fox 64. It's easily one of my favorite games on the console, way ahead of Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. That's part... read
[Update: It's legit. That's your first look at the 3DS's new second analog nub cradle, set for release alongside Monster Hunter (Tri) 3G. Via @miladesn.]

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

Sonic the Hedgehog turned twenty years old this week, and there was much rejoicing. Well ... there was a bit of rejoicing. There was something, at least.
To keep everybody in the Sonic spirit, I have consulted the great... read
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a powerful game. It's a game that, once it sinks its claws into a gamer, never lets go. Equal parts innocent and morbid, charming and disturbing, silly and melancholic, Ocarina of Time ... read
The Wii U was revealed. It's a new console that looks to be more powerful than the current HD consoles, and it has a lot of Wii- and 3DS-style functions in the controller. The controller is really weird and I hate the plac... read
[Update: Just spotted an image of Mimiga Viliiage in polygon form on Nicalis's Twitter and added it to the gallery.]
Cave Story 3D is one of my most hotly anticipated titles at the moment. The promise of new content, designed... read
Two weeks ago from yesterday, the 3DS launched in the USA. So far, the console has sold well, but not quite as well as Nintendo projected. The company expected to move 4 million 3DS units worldwide in the first month of relea... read
It has come to my attention that I've not touched my 3DS since I reviewed Ridge Racer 3D, and this makes me very unhappy. The Streetpass function is useless here, the collection of Play Coins feels like a waste of time, and N... read
I had the pleasure of playing Fez at PAX East, the upcoming perspective-bending 2D exploration platformer for XBLA. I also had the opportunity to chat with Mr. Phil Fish, the game's co-creator. While talking about the ideas t... read
The 3DS released in North America just yesterday and reactions have certainly been mixed. Most of us seem to love the system as a concept, and revel in the potential it holds, while remaining unsatisfied with the current laun... read
When Nintendo of America's President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aime, says that the company's latest handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, is in a "category of one," he's not kidding.
When it ships on March 27, Nintendo's handheld will be th... read
Fellow Destructoid editor Tony Ponce and I are in love with recent Nintendo DS game Ghost Trick. Like, obsessed. It is easily one of our favorite games of the year.

The 3DS is set for launch on March 27 in the United States, and the games that are arriving along with it have just been announced. It's a diverse list of 18 games, and Nintendo is promising that at least 12 more titles will ... read
I recently went on a tear about how I'd like for more women in video games to throw off the shackles of gender concepts in favor of just being as interesting and genuine as possible. The female protagonists from WayForward ar... read
Considering that when the PS Vita first came out, it used an almost identical CPU/GPU to the current iPad at the time (albeit with more cores and a greater clock speed), Im somewhat curious as to what a new handheld with an iPad Pros hardware could
After finding out what this months Bloggers Wanted prompt is, I decided to commit blog necromancy and revive a post I wrote about Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC AND the anime Angel Beats! Thats right, I used to write blogs before doing Comments of the Week!
I just spent an hour setting my Steam Controller to treat only the bottom half of my DS emulator window as a mouse zone for the touchscreen in a Big Picture It kinda works better than I thought it but still doesnt really feel
People seem pretty insistent on the idea that Zelda NX will be vastly superior to Wii why? When OoT was ported to GCN all it had was Master TP on Wii was almost no different from Unless its a remaster it wont be significantly
