Sonic Mania has a not so nostalgic price

Yet another River City game is coming to the 3DS

It is crazy, to me, how River City Ransom was an overlooked title its in day, but has now spawned this huge collection of sequels that keep releasing year after year. While I was initially delighted to see a sequel with Underground and even...

Review: STRAFE

My first look at STRAFE was from Destructoid back in 2015. When a successful Kickstarter had funded the game, I became intrigued by a marketing gimmick that centered heavily on "Bleeding Edge Graphics for 1996." I love shooters and 1996 was...

Night Trap is coming back, baby!

Night Trap is notorious for being one of the few games that brought about the creation of the ESRB. While its content is pretty damn vanilla and very PG rated, apparently its depiction of violence against women was so realistic and encompas...

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...

Apocalypse Now now has a Kickstarter for a game adaptation

In the old-school era, nearly every film had some kind of video game adaptation. It didn't matter if the film hadn't been relevant in decades, you were bound to find some form of interactive adaptation for a beloved classic. The Angry Video...

That new Power Rangers movie is getting a mobile game

The Power Rangers had a couple of good games back in the 16 bit era. The SNES beat-em-up and Genesis fighting game are still held in high regard, but you'd be hard pressed to find another game from the series that even comes close to the qu...

Swing, Swing on over to Rock Band 4 for some 'classic' DLC

I'm down for an NES Classic turbo controller

As a kid, games used to be tremendously hard. While I persevered, sometimes whipping out the NES Max or the Game Genie would be my answer. Back then, I mostly just wanted to fool around instead of trying to prove something; nowadays, I like...

The original Red Faction may be headed to PS4

THQ Nordic's recent announcement that Red Faction was removed from Germany's index of "damaging" games now makes a lot more sense. According to the European ratings group PEGI, the 2001 original will be releasing on PS4 via Sony's PS2 Class...

In a bid to please seemingly no one, Sony has announced that Hot Shots Tennis will be heading to the PS4 this week. Tennis was a spin-off of the Hot Shots Golf series, and it didn't review well back on its original release in 2007. Along wi...

Review: Battlezone 98 Redux

If you split my head open and dumped out all the individual ideas and nonsense that clutters up my mind into one of those kitschy word clouds, I know what terms would stand out in bold. Tanks. Hover-tanks. Cold War insanity. MOON BATT...
