New Destructoid Episode: Duke Nukem, Catherine, and Wii U

Hey gang, long time no typing. In the wake of E3, I am suffering from what the experts are referring to as "nerd flu," but which is more likely a hybrid of the T-Virus, Captain Trips, and the Legacy Virus. In spite of Kinect being the most...


Preview: Catherine

ESRB: Catherine has topless demons, chainsaw babies

Catherine asks if you're committed in a new trailer

Here's a new trailer for Catherine, in which a bunch of geekatrons talk about getting married. Most of the video can be safely ignored, except for a bit near the end where we get to see some clips of the game with English voice acting. Yay...

Answer hard questions, be in Atlus' next Catherine promo

The catch, though, is that you'll have to answer those questions in video form, specifically, as a video response to this informational clip below recorded by Atlus' resident PR maestro Aram Jabbari. All you need to do is make your own vid...


Catherine-with-a-C to be voiced by Laura Bailey

We already know Catherine's coming to the US. Atlus announced as much. But for a game as big as this one, localization will be a key factor in its potential success. Even a Japanophile like myself knows that having a great English dub will ...

Catherine has music from Shin Megami Tensei games in it

Troy Baker cast as Vincent for Atlus' Catherine

When you play Catherine you'll see that it's incredibly voice heavy. The entire game is voiced, all the way down to the small talk in a bar. Going through Atlus' newest puzzle/love story is a lot like watching a movie, so the voices have to...
