Behind the Voice: Karen Strassman Part 1

I've been wanting to write something about video game voice actors for a little while now. It seems like interest in who the talents behind our favorite characters are has steadily risen over the past few years, and within my circle of fr...

 
 
 

Spoilers for Persona 4 Golden

So I've been playing Persona 4 Golden, and I just recently put Naoto in my active party. Now, I'm not sure if it's the added resolution and whatever, but I don't really remember her twirling that pistol of hers so much, like, she's doing it...

 
 
 

What The Hell Is So Great About Dark Souls Anyway?

I don't think there's another game in recent memory that disappointed me as much as Dark Souls. I guess there was Catherine, and that was probably worse, but other than that, Dark Souls has to be one of the most disappointing games I've p...

 
 
 

So, Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XIII: Part 3

Welcome back to the final installment in my criminally over-long look at Final Fantasy XIII. This part is going to be all about nice and good things. It's hopefully going to be a very fun and chill experience, to balance out all that vitrio...

 
 
 

So, Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XIII: Part 2

Welcome back. In part 1, which you can read here if you haven't already, I covered the game's long and problematic development, which will hopefully offer some insight into this installments' topic. The Bad: Gameplay First of all, the c...

 
 
 

So, Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XIII: Part 1

Final Fantasy XIII is a game very dear to my heart. I'm not entirely sure why that is, mind you. I guess we all develop an affinity for things that help distract us from some of the rougher patches in life. And Final Fantasy XIII was defi...

 
 
 
 

Destructoid Shirt Design Ideas

Hey guys. I've been working on some shirt designs for the dtoid store, and I thought I'd share what I've got and see if you guys are at all interested in any of my designs. First off, there's this neon design on either a black or dark grey...

 
 
 

Top 10 Actual Reasons to Love the RE6 Demo

10. All the new movement abilities are goofy as hell. Somewhere around RE4, the series went from being goofy ostensibly by accident to being goofy on purpose. I mean, it's one thing to have a poorly translated English script. It's another t...

 
 
 

Fond Memories of Nintendo Power

It's weird the kind of impact Nintendo Power going under had. I don't remember it prompting nearly as much wistful reflection and nostalgia when EGM got shut down in 2008. It certainly wasn't from a lack of readership. But something about N...

 
 
 

Free PC Games: Hot Garbage Edition

After reading through those free PC game lists Phil was posting up here a few weeks back, I was inspired to compile a list of my own, so I did. But whereas his list was about good games to have fun times with, I've decided to put together a...

 
 
 

Games You Should Play if You Haven't: Binary Domain

I had been meaning to play this game for a while now, ever since I heard Nagoshi was working as the producer on the project. The idea of a Japanese, Gears of War style game with the Yakuza series' lineage behind it was awfully steep to deli...

 
 
 

A Name Has Everything to do With Quality

The problem with names is that, if they have any amount of history attached to them, they carry so much baggage along with them. A game's name carries so many expectations along with it. Even a title you've never heard of implicitly either ...

 
 
 

Games You Should Play if You Haven't: Cryostasis

Cryostasis isn't exactly the best game I've ever played. It is; however, an intensely original game that's definitely worth playing, by a developer you've probably never heard of. The game was developed by Action Forms Ltd. for PC and rel...

 
 
 
 

Games You Should Play if You Haven't: Trapt

Also known as Kagero II in Japan, Trapt is the fourth and latest game in Tecmo's Deception series. The great thing about the Deception series is that there's really nothing else like it. To describe the game for anyone who hasn't played i...

 
 
 

Spare Me Your PVC Statues and Pre-Order Costumes

What goes on in a gameís development is beyond me. If development is as complicated as they say when making excuses for day one and on-disc DLC, then that may be true. But publishers need to recognize the position those practices put us a...

 
 
 
 

Games You Should Play if You Haven't: Nightshade

Letís talk about Nightshade for the PS2. Known as Kunoichi in Japan, this puzzlingly titled sequel to the 2002 Shinobi reboot went the way of SHOGO when the much more well known Ninja Gaiden reboot came out and immediately stole its thunder...
