Dynasty Warriors 9 is a technical mess on consoles

The mostly negative reception to Dynasty Warriors 9 is not something I expected. While I haven't been a fan of every single entry that Koei Tecmo has produced, the developer seemed to be getting better ever since the release of Dynasty Warr...

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is going free-to-play

Though it is a perfectly functional and fun fighting game, Dead or Alive 5 didn't exactly set the fighting game scene ablaze. It sold well enough at least, but Team Ninja plans to breathe new life into the game by making Dead or Alive 5: Ul...

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper: Fight a Lu Bu army on Wii U

Upon watching the new trailer for Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, one of the launch titles for Wii U, I had to go back a bit. Did it say battle an all Lu Bu army? And you can fight them with tigers? And Ryu Hayabusa? Why the hell not, I gues...

Preview: Pokemon Conquest

I made the harrowing decision to pass on Pokémon Black and White when they released, which I never expected to do, as an avid fan of Pokémon. It’s still a choice that doesn’t sit quite well with me (I think Smuglea...

Dynasty Warriors 7 weapon system explained

One thing that's worried me about Dynasty Warriors 7 is the feeling that every character will have the same moveset thanks to the fact that weapons can be shared amongst them. We've been chatting with lead producer about Akihiro Suzuki...

Here's a ludicrous amount of Dynasty Warriors 7 screens

When you woke up this morning, you prayed to your God of choice that you'd visit Destructoid and have a silly amount of Dynasty Warriors 7 images to gawk at. Well, you're in motherfrigging luck, son! Here is a bunch of screens and CG artwor...

ESRB text for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage is rad

We already know that upcoming game Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage is hilarious. I'm already jazzed for this ridiculous game, and I'm sure you are too. The newly listed ESRB summary for the Xbox 360 and PS3 title does it justice, as you'...

People asplode in Fist of the North Star

It's probably been about fifteen years since I last saw Fist of the North Star in any form. Long enough, at least, that there are only two things I clearly remember about it: A really close-in shot of fingers being forcibly pressed into a ...

Tecmo Koei's E3 line-up is short but sweet

The Japanese unified power of Tecmo and Koei is only bringing four games to E3 this year. No portable stuff. No Wii stuff. Just serious games. I'm all for the First of the North Star game. Ken's Revenge, coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 and i...

Nerdgasm: Koei's Romance of the Three Kingdoms on iPad

I'm big enough of a nerd to feel comfortable telling you that Koei's older historical simulation/strategy games are some of my favorite games ever. Two that will always sit high on my list of beloved games are Genghis Khan and Romance of th...

Hatchet buried: Tecmo Koei wishes Itagaki well

Aww! How sweet. It seems that they're all over the sour split drama when bad ass game maker Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo awhile back, taking much of Team Ninja with him. There was a lawsuit, unpaid wages and bonuses and threats of katana use...

Fist of the North Star game has useless motorcycles in it

Most Koei games make it a point to show that riding things is pointless. Dynasty Warriors and other related titles all include the riding of horses, but the only reward for a player choosing to do so is death. Riding a horse is a death s...
