What’s the Best-Looking Game You’ve Ever Seen?

There’s been a lot to talk about since this past E3, but you know what’s piqued my interest the most?  Street Fighter 5.  As I’ve said in the past, the only trailers/footage I’ve grown ...

On Final Fantasy and Lost Empathy

So does anyone here watch The Middle? I’ve seen some of it, in my quest to fill the hole left by the long-since-finished How I Met Your Mother.  I can’t say I’m in love with The Middle, and I have...

Bayonetta 2 is secretly brilliant.

In the first fifteen seconds of the game, you’re treated to a slow-motion shot of Bayonetta that -- of course -- pans straight down to her crotch.  Barely a minute later, you’re commandeering and piloti...

Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?

But first, a preliminary question: how relevant is Final Fantasy Type-0? I admit I haven’t been looking around all that much to gauge responses, but my guess -- or maybe fear -- is that people have chosen to ignor...

Of Dragon Age and Bunches of Jokers

So not too long ago, I did a post on Xenoblade Chronicles that took a look at its story.  That’s fine and all, but I’m wary of the fact that I didn’t really talk about the gameplay -- which, you k...

Im Really Feeling [Meditations on Science and Warfare]!

So Super Smash Bros. is threatening to make me hate Shulk. Some bad experiences made me realize that he’s one of my least favorite characters to go up against.  I’m not about to claim that he’s go...

A Blithering Post on Power and Respect

So if you’re reading this, I’m going to assume that you’ve been using the internet long enough to have heard the phrase “strong female character” -- and if you’ve been on even longer ...

Why I Love Pikmin 3

This is usually the part where I go on a multi-paragraph tangent to set up “context”, but let’s not dilly-dally this time.  So, let me say this to start: SPACE IS AWESOME.  There may still be...

On DOA and Shortchanged Heroines

Disclaimer: all things considered, you can’t really call me a fan of the Dead or Alive franchise.  The only one I’ve ever really played is DOA4, and while I had plenty of fun with it, I’ve since m...

Watch Dogs (feat. Kamen Rider W)

Let me start off with a question: at what point does a topic cease to be relevant? I only ask because time and time again, it feels like I’m jumping on the train late.  By the time I come up with something su...

Donkey Kong: The Wayward King

I’m pretty sure that at some point, I promised to do an in-depth look at this game -- which a couple of people apparently wanted, for some reason.  (Masochism, perhaps?)  I didn’t forget, of course...

Do We Need Assassins Creed Anymore?

So my brother picked up a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Unity on day one, because of course he did.  And he asked me to play through it from start to finish, because of course he did.  And I played it for no...

Why Do People Love Monster Hunter?

So everyone here knows what “serendipity” means, right?  Pared down to basics, you can think of it as a synonym for “coincidence”.  In my case, though?  It tends to mean that someb...

Super Smash Bros.: The Final Hope

Have you ever woken up one morning and thought to yourself, “Wow!  I’ve been a fan of this ongoing franchise for the majority of my life!  Spectacular!”  Yeah.  That was me not too ...

What Are Video Games For?

Alternate post title: DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRp. All right, let’s be real here.  I’m pretty sure that by this point, I’ve made no shortage of my opinions known.  Some of ...

So How Do You Idealize Female Characters?

Its been a while since Ive tossed a post up on Destructoid. Lets change thatwith yet another ill-advised discussion on gender politics in video games! Rejoice, sort of! Or, alternatively, despair! There was an arti...

Beyond: Two Souls (feat. Kamen Rider Fourze)

So you know that whole turn your brain off mentality that people throw out sometimes? You know -- the idea that if you just go with the flow, youll have more fun? I dont believe in that. Setting aside the fact that s...

Devil Survivor 2 is (still) secretly brilliant.

All right, look. Can I be honest with you guys for a second? Sometimes I feel a little iffy about drawing comparisons to other games when Im trying to illustrate a point. Its an effective method, no question, but Im w...

Devil Survivor 2 is secretly brilliant.

Don't worry, I'll explain -- as I'm wont to do. Theres a question thats been on my mind for a while now. It should go without saying, but in this day and age were fortunate enough to be a society with full, often-insta...

Ruminations on the Big Ns Blondes

Hey guys! Want to see me whack a beehive with a hockey stick? Then let me ask you a question: how do you feel about Zero Suit Samus new design? Im going to come right out and say it: I think its all right. The high ...

Is Senran Kagura Secretly Brilliant?

Hey, happy Valentines Day. Lets talk about breasts. A while back, I was on The Escapist sifting through the forums -- something I dont do all that often, unless theres an interesting topic listed on the front page. B...

Girly Guys and Manly Girls

Fair warning: this is probably going to be the stupidest post youve ever read. Or if not the stupidest, then the one thatll draw discussion away from the topic and put me under (or on) fire. Or if not that, then at leas...

Lightning Returns: One Last Battle

I dont think Ive had an existential crisis this bad since I watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon and legitimately wanted to bash my head against something until everything went black. Just thought Id throw that out th...

Of Batman and Prequels

Once upon a time, I hoped that when Nolans Dark Knight Trilogy came to an end, we could all shut the hell up about Batman for a while. Not forever. Just long enough to give the guy a rest. Long enough for the public con...

As Black as Lightning (Part 3 -- FINALE)

And here we are, one more time. If for some silly reason youre just joining me here for this FFXIII miniseries (heres part 1, and heres part 2), let me give you another primer. The thrust of my argument is that Lightn...

As Black as Lightning (Part 2)

And here we are again. If youre just joining me here(and heres part 1 if you missed it), let me give you a primer. In lieu of current evidence, Im convinced that Square Enixs beloved Lightning Farron is more than wh...

As Black as Lightning (Part 1)

I have a sneaking suspicion that it was (the great) Jim Sterlings review of Final Fantasy XIII that led me to discover Destructoid one fateful day. In a universe where eights, nines, and the occasional perfect score orbit...

How do you play Grand Theft Auto?

And the Silliest Post Title of the Year Award goes to In all honesty, I cant think of a more appropriate title for a post. I consider myself a gamer of some degree of -- for lack of a better term -- hardcore-itude,...

Let's Get Beautiful

You know, Ive been thinking. (Cue the panicked shrieks of the masses as they run desperately for cover.) So word on the street is that Senran Kagura is coming to the West. Thats interesting, I suppose. I cant person...

A Creator's Responsibility

Video games? We need to talk. I think I know you pretty well by now. Ive been playing with you since before I could tie my shoes (God bless Velcro). And I know what youre planning to do. See, we gamers have been luc...
