Just to be fair, I'm going to throw this out there before I go one word further: I LOVE tower defense games. With all my heart. As soon as I saw the first preview for Orcs Must Die! during my trip to Robot Entertainment last week, it h...

Earth Defense Force ... on my iPhone?

I feel like all the sudden, my precious Earth Defense Force is going through some sort of renaissance. A few months ago, I was happily replaying the 360 version with one of my best friends in mad pursuit of the Genocide Gun, saying, "One of...

Preview: Monster Tale

Review: Space Invaders Infinity Gene (PS3/360)

If you have an iPhone, you may have played Space Invaders Infinity Gene when it came out late last year. Why are we excited about a port then, you ask? Why, HD, of course. That, and the ability to use a gamepad rather than your iPhone's tou...

PixelJunk Monsters sequel being considered, no more 2D

Ico and Last Guardian films could one day exist

So you already know that we are less than thrilled about the idea of a Shadow of the Colossus movie. I think I would be okay with it if Guillermo Del Toro was the one making it, but considering it's Misher Films behind it, I'm less than ent...

The entire Destructoid staff more or less agrees that I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1! is easily some of the best fun you can have with a game on the Xbox 360. That costs a dollar, no less. Ska Studios has recently teamed up with ultra...

Alundra, Arc the Lad getting a PSN re-release

I love the golden era of PS One RPGs. I recal so many games from that time with such fond feelings. One of them was easily Alundra, an action RPG that I plowed many hours into back in the day. I may get to relive those wonderful hours accor...

TGS: Sega announces Phantasy Star Online 2 for PC

Atlus announces a Greatest Hits version of Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls, a game so notoriously hard that our own Dale North admitted he could not even finish it, has earned the grudging respect of many gamers because of its crazy level of challenge. Still, the game earned very high scores, and rea...
