Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

This is probably the second time in two years that I can say that it’s been a pretty good year for games and anime, if not necessarily a great year for everything else. That might be true in the broader sense, but despite this more ...

More familiar faces return in Trails of Cold Steel IV

So Falcom's countdown for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV ended on Wednesday, and they announced some juicy stuff. I think the most important one is that they added The End of Saga to the game's t...

Import Review: Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

It's hard to believe we live in a world where a new Kamen Rider game was released in English. I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise since Bandai Namco's Singapore division localized a couple Super Robot Wars and Gundam titles in Asia...

Review: Eiyu*Senki - The World Conquest (PC)

When a Japanese adult game's naughty parts are cut from the console release, there are some instances where it retains its charm. This shows that the product can stand on its own two feet. After I turned Zipang into the strongest natio...

Fate/Grand Order Arcade's fights actually look good for once

I can forgive Fate/Grand Order for not looking completely amazing. I mean, it's meant to be a mobile gambling hellscape, not a triple-A graphical showcase, right? And some of the flashier moments look alright, even, in that 2.5D JRPG s...

XSEED is localizing an adorable PC game from 2001

XSEED's mystery announcement may not have been related to The Legend of Heroes: Trails series, but that wasn't stopping me from considering the possibilities of an older Falcom title crossing the pond. Lo and behold, my intuition was correc...

This game is about boobs

As a member of the Destructoid staff, I get an ass-load of emails every day about games I'll never bother to learn about let alone play. Mostly mobile stuff from sketchy Russian developers who I'm sure are just out to infect my phone w...

Koei Tecmo's latest entry in the Dynasty Warriors series will be heading West on February 13, 2018. This is one week after the Japanese release date (February 8), though I'm not really sure why any delay is necessary. Regardless, at least t...
