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...
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 ...
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...
[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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 other day, we were talking about how great the game is o...
North American retail behemoth GameStop has listed a launch bundle for the Nintendo 3DS. For $299.97, the listing offers a 3DS, a choice of Samurai Warriors, Dead or Alive Dimensions or Super Street Fighter IV 3D,&n...
Every new Nintendo handheld gets a new Pokémon game. That's the way it's been for the past 15 years. The OG Game Boy got Pokémon Red/Blue, the Game Boy Color got Pokémon Silver/Gold, and so forth. That ha...
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 ...
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...
Wait just a minute. NIS America is publishing (and Nicalis is developing) a remake of Cave Story, and it's going to have 3D graphics presented on a 2D plane with the 3DS' depth-of-field wizardry in mind? That sounds like too ...
If there's one thing that annoys about piracy, it's the excuses. If you're into piracy, whatever, but don't try to dress it up as something it's not. The flawed logic and the sense of entitlement is the thing that really annoys me, and that's the subject of this week's video.  So yeah, watch it if you want!
After an eon of waiting, Nintendo has officially dated and priced the 3DS in North America. You can pick up the next-generation handheld on March 27 and it'll set you back $249.99. It wil be available in Europe on March 25th....
3DS games look pretty good, but do they look fifty bucks good? GameStop certainly seems to think so, as the retailer's penciled in a $49.99 price tag for two of the better known 3DS titles, Dead or Alive: Dimensions and Samur...
So, it finally happened. Some 3DS news has occurred that's suddenly made me incredibly cynical about the system. Nintendo's Japanese 3DS site has revealed that the upcoming handheld sports a pathetic three to five hours of ba...
We should have a proper unveiling of the final 3DS model this month, but you know us gamers, we have no patience. So it is that a crafty little bastard stole a 3DS from a Chinese production line, and did what any noble thief ...
Here it is! The big finale! The climactic closing to our two part awards show special (in case you missed it, here's part one). In this episode we have even more special guest stars, including game developers, game character...
Want to know what's good? Then you're in luck! The 1st annual Destructoid Show Awards show spectacular is here! In part one of this two-part extravaganza, we showcase the best looking, most disappointing, and hardest to put ...
Nintendo has announced that its never-ending Pokemon saga will continue on March 6, when Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version for the Nintendo DS hit shelves. The press release announcing this momento...
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...
[Update: The awards are over -- you can find a full list of winners, as well as the evening's premiere's right here.] Spike's Video Game Awards will air tonight, starting at 8:00 PM Eastern. You can watch it on Spike TV, or y...
A new study claims that while iPhone and mobile gaming is on the rise, DS and PSP games are treading water, and the water's getting rather putrid. This is all according to Interpret, who states that market data is signalling ...
Renegade Kid's next title is ATV Wild Ride. Yes, it's totally not what you were expecting based on its track record with the Dementium series and Moon. The game is aiming to be the best ATV experience you can get on the DS w...
A few years ago, I discovered escape-the-room Flash games and was hooked instantly. Shorter and more compact than your typical point-and-click adventure, escape-the-room games such as Crimson Room are a great way to kill time...
While Sonic the Hedgehog has become quite famous for a string of terrible games over the past ten years, that's only really true in terms of home console output. Hyperbole states that we haven't had a good Sonic game since So...
The next Silent Hill movie, Silent Hill: Revelation has been announced, and is being filmed in 3D. The film -- directed by Michael J. Bassett -- revolves around Heather Mason, who is on the run from "dark forces" along with h...
Nobody played the original Shantae. I didn't and neither did you. It was a Game Boy Color game released a year after the GBA hit retail. It had such a limited run that loose copies currently fetch well over $100. The only rea...
Here's a little video that I whipped up for Destructoid LIVE, which is a very special treat from me to you. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 3DS and not only experience the power of 3D gaming without glasses, but capt...
The legendary R4 card, which allows gamers to essentially help themselves to the entire Nintendo DS library, has become officially illegal to import, advertise and sell in the United Kingdom. The R4 is used by thousands of UK...
Shu Takumi isn't a name many gamers are exactly familiar with. But they should be, especially if they consider themselves of the distinctly surreal and popular Ace Attorney series. Having just completed his latest DS title, G...
October 26, that's the day you should take off from work if you want to rock out in your pajamas (or underwear) while playing Rock Band 3 all day long. Harmonix and MTV Games have announced the late-October date as the day th...
[Updated: Now with more promotional images of Joss Stone and images from the game!] Wii owners aren't getting all of the Bond love with GoldenEye this holiday; Activision has announced James Bond 007: Blood Stone, developed b...
You love him, I love him -- the good Professor Layton will be making his return to Nintendo's handheld on September 12 with Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. Puzzled as to why this is news, considering a release date f...
I adore Pixar movies. I really do. I love them so much, in fact, that I have played every single videogame based on every single Pixar movie that has come out. Yeah, I am not ashamed that my friends on Xbox Live still see me ...
Fire up your Internet Argument Machines -- the nominations for Game Critics: Best of E3 2010 have been revealed today! You can find the full list after the jump, but first a few notes. id Software's Rage received the most nom...
A complete 3D remake of the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a real, actual thing Nintendo's working on. As you might have guessed, why yes, this is yet another 3DS title to add to the already impressive list. Unfortun...
