The ten best videogame laughs EVER!

I have a very loud laugh. Some people say it is infectious, but I have been paranoid about it my entire life. When I am sitting in a movie theater, sometimes I laugh so hard that people think something is wrong with me. I eve...

What is the most consistently great series of all time?

After yesterday's official announcement of Metal Gear Solid 5 (woot!), I started thinking about how there really aren't any bad games in the entire, long-running Metal Gear series. All of the Solid games are near perfect, the...

The winner of the battle of the E3 2012 predictions!

Before E3, I posted Destructoid's annual E3 predictions. It was an epic competition for the ages. A competition even more brutal than the Thunderdome, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale COMBINED! I asked a videogame analyst (Jes...

E3: Hands-on with ZombiU

Huh. That was my first reaction after playing ZombiU for the Wii U at Nintendo's booth during E3. Huh. Now, "huh" usually has a negative connotation, but that is not necessarily the case with this particular game. The "huh" i...

E3: Daedalic and the return of the classic adventure game

One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh ai...

E3: Hands-on with Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion

I haven't made a final decision as to what my favorite game at E3 2012 is yet, but Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS is right up there. When DreamRift's game was announced a couple of months ago, I was shocked. Inste...

E3: Interview: Yasuhiro Wada on 'Project Happiness'

Interviewing the creator of the Harvest Moon series was one of my highlights of E3. In fact, it may have been the highlight. Yasuhiro Wada is an amazing, talented person with an unbelievably refreshing attitude about videogam...

E3: Hands-on with Project P-100

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded ...

E3: New details on Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS is not playable on the show floor at E3. Let me say that again: Paper Mario: Sticker Star is not playable. WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?! Of all the games here at E3, I was really hoping to ge...

E3: Ranking the games of Nintendo Land

There will be twelve total minigames in Nintendo Land for the Wii U, but only five were on display in the Nintendo booth. Now that I have played and previewed them all, which did I like the best? Since this list will change t...

E3: Hands-on with Pikmin 3

This is it. The moment I have been anticipating for years. I am a giant fan of the Pikmin series. GIANT! And every year for the last few years, I have hoped and prayed Pikmin 3 would be official and announced at that year's E...

E3: New Paper Mario: Sticker Star images to love

The Paper Mario series is one of my favorite Nintendo series ever, so you better believe I was excited to see Paper Mario: Sticker Star make a way-too-short appearance during the way-too-short 3DS portion of the Nintendo pres...

E3: Hands-on with New Super Mario Bros. U

Let's get this out of the way right now: Seeing a brand new, 2D Mario in HD is surreal. I have been waiting for so long to finally see a Nintendo franchise in high-definition, so seeing Mario run around the Mushroom Kingdom d...

E3: Wii U launching in white; black ... coming soon?

As I was walking around the Nintendo booth, I noticed that some Wii U consoles were white and others were black. We had been introduced to the white one already, so I was curious to know if the black console was official ... ...

E3: Hands-on with the Wii U GamePad

One of the things I was most looking forward to at this E3 was seeing and touching the new Wii U GamePad. I had played with it last year, but knew that some major aesthetic changes were made, and wanted to see if I liked what I saw ... er, felt. What did I think? Was it tablet-riffic ... or tablet-errible?

E3: My thoughts on the Nintendo press conference

I am a giant Nintendo fan -- maybe the biggest on the site! So it goes without saying I was excited for the Nintendo press conference this morning. Now that it is over, what did I think? Was it everything I could have hoped for? Or did I leave disappointed. I know you have a lot to read about today, so I will make this quick.

E3: Please just watch this Last of Us footage

The Last of Us is beautiful. During the demo at the Sony press conference, I gasped several times. And not even because of the action on-screen. That was cool, too, but the game was so gorgeous I couldn't help but stare in a...

E3: This Assassin's Creed III demo is pretty great

We all knew Assassin's Creed III was coming. We knew its setting. We knew about the main character. But this is the first time most of us are laying eyes on the extended demo. And it looks pretty great. It's still a little h...
