Voice acting doesn't necessarily improve 999

I have been in love with the Zero Escape series since former Destructoid editor Tony Ponce reviewed the first game in the franchise, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, seven years ago. He gave it a well deserved 10/10 and after reading t...

There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Not to talk too negatively about fighting games and their constant updates, but this is one of the reasons why I find it hard to get truly invested in any one particular series. Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have so many updates, sequels, and DL...

Review: BlazBlue: Central Fiction

It's been tough for me to get into BlazBlue. My first ever Arc System Works fighter was the original Guilty Gear, and I've been a believer ever since. When BlazBlue rolled around 10 years later a lot of my crew was already investe...

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...

Zero Time Dilemma watches are finally shipping to customers

Despite launching to some highly favourable reviews, the release of Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma was somewhat rocky. Issues such as a lack of advertised PS TV compatibility took over a week to be resolved in the U.S, and even longer in Eu...

PC Port Report: Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

I'll admit, it feels a bit like heresy playing Zero Time Dilemma on a PC, especially considering, well, 999. I won't go into it any more than that for people who haven't played through the first game. I bought the original on a whim (o...

Zero Time Dilemma is currently incompatible with PSTV

Zero Time Dilemma is out and at least one guy at Destructoid thinks it's good. If you picked it up today or are waiting for your copy to arrive in the mail, and you are planning on playing it on your PlayStation TV, there is some bad news. ...

Review: Zero Time Dilemma

I've been reading Destructoid for roughly six years now. I can't remember the first article that I read, but I certainly know the first article that made this my home for video gaming news. It was the review for Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Ni...

Review: Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei

Owners of the Nintendo 3DS know the system has a veritable buffet of great and engrossing RPGs. It's become a never-ending feast as seemingly every other month a new game is released that treats us to a delightful and well-crafted romp that...

Zero Time Dilemma takes text skipping to a new level

I can still recall the pain of playing through various New Game+ modes in old games where you couldn't skip cutscenes. It was excruciating, having to sit through 10-15 minute expositions constantly, but newer games have gotten better about ...

Review: Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault

Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is a frustrating game. Not because it’s difficult (it sure isn’t) and not because of its nonsense mouthful of a title (although that sure doesn’t help). It’s frustrating because the...
