Review: Gal Gun: Double Peace

I didn't think anyone else at Destructoid would be interested in reviewing Gal*Gun: Double Peace. I've become the defacto niche Japanese game reviewer somehow and this title, with its scantily clad teenage girls you pleasure with your shots...

Review: Fable: The Journey

The fatal flaw of Kinect games is that they are built on a foundation of lies. You are the controller -- except most games control much of the action themselves to make up for the lack of input. It's more immersive -- except the waving of y...
