Destructoid review: Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions

Oh god, Final Fantasy Tactics. What I knew in my youth as the Bane of Academia, the Unholy Timeslayer. It's on a shiny new platform and has a nifty subtitle now, some additions and new job classes, but it's the same game and even now threa...

Destructoid review: Portal

[This is just one of the new games available in The Orange Box. Don't forget to read our reviews of Episode Two and Team Fortress 2, and keep your eyes peeled for forthcoming console reviews.] It's no big secret that I've been eagerly await...

Podtoid 33: Satellite Delay

I think I totally jinxed us when I was talking about, y'know, delays when soliciting requests for questions this past weekend. Turns out our recording software was listening and said "Hey, I got a crazy idea -- let's make Linde sound l...

Podtoid 33: Can we still be friends?

If I've learned anything from almost a year workin' this gig, it's this: an episode of Podtoid without unexplained delay simply ain't Podtoid. We had some terribly sexy plans for a Tokyo Game Show Wraptoid, but Niero was taken hostage by a ...

Destructoid review: The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Feel that? Zelda's in the air. Oh, that special time of year (or, y'know, span of years) where we finally get our hands on Link's latest adventure in Hyrule -- er, Hyrule or Some Neighboring Kingdom -- and consume ourselves in a land of mon...

Destructoid Review: Halo 3

If I may beat a cliché firmly into the dirt just a few inches deeper, Halo 3 is a game that needs no introduction. I mean that literally. If you’re not decked out in your homemade MJOLNIR armor lovingly crafted out of discard...

Team Fortress 2 impressions

When I was young, I had dreams of becoming a doctor, fostered as dreams tend to be by the games I played. Had I taken that long and expensive road through med school, I would have invariably been asked what prompted my pursuit of medicine. ...

Podtoid 32: Fat Japanese Girls edition

Evening, kittens. We’re coming up on a near year of Podtoid, and to celebrate this milestone the higher-ups thought that it’d be best if I destroyed the outfit as soon as possible, and therefore positioned me as host. I’m ...

Your monthly Aquaria reminder: seven minutes of the game

Right, Aquaria. We're still waiting patiently for the release of this game, and if you're not along with us, you should just get off this short bus at the next stop. In this latest footage of the game provided by Bit-Blot, we get to see a b...

Podtoid 32: Bloody Coup

Great civilizations often crumble at the height of their decadence. Last week on Podtoid 31, Nex and I were drizzling chocolate on bundles of hundred dollar bills and shooting them out of a flaming cannon -- it should come as no surprise th...

First Halo 3 copies in the wild

What's this? Linde's posting not one, but two stories 'bout Halo in a single afternoon? Truth is, the real Linde was brutally slain by one Dick "I Hate Fatties" McVengeance weeks ago. I am his replacement, the Lindetron 4000 -- th...

Nintendo chief Iwata and designer Itoi talk shop over dinner

Been awhile, kids -- it's your favorite Linde, freshly returned from the barbaric wastes of Hungary, where goose liver serves as both key component to every meal and a common substitute for drinking water. Them folks are crazy about their g...

Universe at War: Earth Assault hands-on impressions

I'd like to think that one of the most impressive tests of a game is the verdict rendered by a player who isn't necessarily an enthusiast of that particular genre. It's certainly not an opinion that you'd necessarily stack above and beyond ...

Destructoid review: BioShock

I had almost lost hope. Almost. You know what article I've had sitting in my queue for almost two months? It's called "Requiem for the Single Player Campaign", and it was gonna be good ol' Linde up on his soap box complaining about an indus...

Bargain Bin Laden #22: Psychonauts

Psychonauts. Yeah, I know -- sort of like Beyond Good and Evil, one of those games that needs no introduction, that almost hourly enjoys some sort of running of the mouth by one journalist or another. I'm introducing it as such to take a bi...

Pew! Pew! Preview!: Guild Wars: Eye of the North

Yesterday, I had an opportunity that comes once, maybe twice in a lifetime -- the chance to rekindle an old flame. No, not Nick Chester, we're broken up for good, you hear me? You only have to leave this editor at the altar once before he w...

In a world where game trailers are damn near identical...

As the years go on I'd like to think we've been so exposed to horrible cliche that we don't really notice it anymore, but as the intrepid innanet detectives over at NeoGAF found, it's starting to become quite absurd. See that there new Crys...

Painkiller next in line for movie adaptation

It's becoming such a common occurrence that I can't even muster the strength to object -- Painkiller, developed by Polish studio People Can Fly, will be the next game on the list of blockbuster-hopeful adaptations of video game properties f...

Bargain Bin Laden #20: Gunstar Super Heroes

Today, BBL rolls up on the big two-oh. I was planning on some grand gesture to celebrate, like some sort of Destructoid team photo where we're all fighting each other while riding bears or something, but I hear that's illegal in these parts...
