Ono-san hit me!

Yesterday was a Super Street Fighter IV event in Hamburg, Germany. Capcom invited press and some players from the German community to meet Yoshinori Ono, the producer of the game. Of course I went there too. This happened: I played a match against him and won. (Actually he let me win, because he is such a nice guy.)

428 - The greatest experiment in non-linear story telling

Another Code R has no american release date

If you are a Nintendo DS owner, you either have already played or should go and play Hotel Dusk. It's a fantastic adventure game with an incredible story and rather interesting puzzles. A little less known is the first adven...

FUCK YOU KONAMI! What have you done?

Seriously everyone at Konami just go and kill yourself. After 11 years you finally decided to bring my favorite game series over to the US and decided to turn it into an abomination like this: First the news about Pop'n Musi...

Rate that dungeon: Persona 3

With this I am starting a series of blog posts about RPG dungeons. While playing Eternal Sonata I realised, that almost every dungeon in that game is shit and I came up with the idea of rating every dungeon in a game on a 1-...

Get your Noby Noby Boy update!

I wasn't expecting too much from the Noby Noby Boy multiplayer update and was really surprised to see that much added to the game. Of course there is offline multiplayer for up to four people, but there are also different B...

Persona 3 Gaming - The first two weeks (April 7th-19th)

With some folks here on Destructoid I'm doing this project of playing Persona 3 alongside the in-game calendar. Unluckily a project like this is sometimes a bit difficult with a game like Persona 3, because there are quite a ...

Loved Shadow of the Colossus? The movie is coming soon!

If action films are my gaming bread and butter, then action-adventures are the video game equivalent -- I love everything about them from the trademark running around and collecting things for people to the well developed st...

White Knight Chronicles - Why did you have to be so shitty?

I was actually really excited about White Knight Chronicles and could not wait to get my hands on the game. Although the game was released at the end of December last year, I only got it at the end of February, because the f...

dress for PS3 is out in Japan.

Yes, I know. You have all been waiting for this "game". It's 2000 Yen, which is certainly way too much money for a simple dress up thing. Apparently in the future dress will be supported by home, so you can actually wear the stuff from dress in home. Also 4 new PSOne games in the Game Archives: - Pop'n Pop - G-Police - Monster Farm Jump - Tantei Jinguji Saburo - Mikan no Lupo

The second week with my XBOX: Microsoft are control freaks!

After posting last week I started with Lost Odyssey which is a great game. Unlike Blue Dragon this game actually felt like a Final Fantasy game. I really enjoyed the game from start to finish (although I still have some side ...

The first week with my new 360

From money I got for christmas I went and bought myself a 360. After updating the system for quite a while (well still shorter than updating a PS3), I created an avatar, that looks nothing like me and went ahead and download...

Seriously my heart just broke

Over at Kotaku they posted a list of the Japan's Best And Worst Sellers By Platform and looking over the list totally broke my heart, because my favorite Wii game of 2008 Happy Dance Collection apparently only sold 5.000 copies. With only that many copies sold chances of a second game in that series are very slim. Which makes me sad.

No SFII for European PSN today.

Strangely PSN updated incredibly early today with a super small update for Europe and SFII was missing. First I thought Europe might get it later today, but as EDGE confirmed it has been delayed for European PSN. So instead of playing the game right now, I'll have to wait until the US update later today. Also the Achievements look quite doable. Hopefully the trophy patch will arrive soon.

Trophy whoring got really scary

If you didn't know, I'm a dirty trophy whore. I played through Burnout Paradise a third time and a second time through GTA IV, that I didn't really like that much, because of the trophies. I even have rented Alone in the Da...
