Zeus help me, another Rygar game's coming


5:00 AM on 10.30.2007



Fans of Destructoid will have gathered by now that I love a good, old fashioned action game. This is why I hated Rygar: The Legendary Adventure for the PlayStation 2. While some people seemed to like it, I couldn't stand the bloody thing, mired as it was in sub-par gameplay and embarrassing cutscenes that weren't even good in a "bad kung fu movie" way. 

Imagine my surprise -- or rather, dismay -- to see a trailer for a brand new Rygar game. Even more amazingly, it begins with crap voice acting and ends with gameplay that looks identical to that was released in 2002 -- the bad gameplay! This is Rygar: Battle of Argus, and I cannot contain my ... apathy.

Who knows? Maybe it'll be good, but seeing this trailer has, for now, ruined my day. If anyone wants me, I'll be out back, kicking a kitten to death to try and cheer myself up again. Oh, and why does it say muscle impact at the end? That's ... disturbing.

The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more

Ron Gilbert releases original design document of Maniac Mansion

I absolutely love the SCUMM period of Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) development and this document gives insight into the game that started it all. It's interesting to see that although the Edison family stayed much the sa...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more
