Keep an eye on action-RPG Shiness this December

Admittedly, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom isn't my normal jam. It's doing the grand action-adventure RPG thing, which I can occasionally sink deep into, but it's rare these days that I feel like I can take on that sort of time commitment....   read

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is September's sleeper hit

It can feel like there are as many games about existing and exploring the final frontier -- space! -- as there are stars in the sky. Because of this, Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander flew under my radar at first. But after binging on it all we...   read

Maybe don't watch this entire Dark Souls III DLC trailer

You might already be down for Ashes of Ariandel, the first of two add-ons coming to Dark Souls III. If that's the case, I'd say watch some -- but not all! -- of this trailer. It's made up of a handful of largely unedited encounters in the ...   read

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse's localization slip-up makes for a good story

Tales from localization are some of the most entertaining around in this industry. Today's comes from Atlus in light of the recently-released Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, and I like it for two reasons. One, it involves a slip-up. It's...   read

CD Projekt isn't planning a PS4 Pro patch for The Witcher 3

I'm not expecting every big PlayStation 4 release to end up with a patch enabling it to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's more powerful hardware, but it is surprising to hear that a hugely successful game like The Witcher 3 -- a title that ha...   read

Virtual tabletop program Fantasy Grounds has improved my D&D sessions

Over a year ago, I started writing about video games here at Destructoid. Since I had been playing a ton of the pen-and-paper-RPG Dungeons and Dragons, and digital games owed so much to that series, I figured I would attempt to write about ...   read

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...   read

I'm still jazzed the Final Fantasy XII remaster is based off the international version

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read
