LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a ton of fun

I am so jealous of kids growing up this day and age. They have the coolest videogame consoles, the Internet, iPads, and now LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Combining Marvel, one of the hottest movie proprieties right now (and not to mention some ...

Preview: First look at LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Just when you thought they were out of good licenses to adapt for LEGO videogames, they pull one back in. Among others, we've explored the adventures of Indiana Jones, the far away galaxy of Star Wars, and the hallowed halls of DC. Now, TT ...


PAX: Hands-on with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

As great as the Professor Layton games are (they are really great!), the last four released on the Nintendo DS have been very similar. While the art direction, puzzle-solving gameplay, and surprisingly emotional stories have been stellar, n...


Oh my GLOB: Hands-on with WayForward's Adventure Time

If you’ve been reading Destructoid with any regularity, you know that we love us some Adventure Time. I side quite happily with my Dtoid kin, having been enamored with the program for some time now. Perhaps it was meant to be. Before ...


gamescom: LEGO LotR has a nice Skyrim vibe going

LEGO Lord of the Rings is doing a number of things to really differentiate itself from prior LEGO titles. The biggest change is that this one provides a more seamless, open world design to the exploration, akin to that of Skyrim. 


Preview: Pokemon Black and White Version 2

It has been two years since a small-town kid defeated the mighty Team Plasma, and in that time, the region of Unova as well as its people have changed. Bianca, no longer unsure of herself, has settled in nicely as an assistant to Poké...


Quick thoughts on the 3DS XL hardware

Hardware redesigns are increasingly common in our industry. Consoles, handhelds, you name it -- there are plenty of variations on this generation's systems. Nintendo is no stranger to this, with a solid four versions of their last handheld....


E3: Hands-on with Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion

I haven't made a final decision as to what my favorite game at E3 2012 is yet, but Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS is right up there. When DreamRift's game was announced a couple of months ago, I was shocked. Instead of just bein...


E3: Unchained Blades is an RPG for the hardcore

I doubt it surprises anyone, but my excitement for Unchained Blades stems from my love of the game’s soundtrack, which was released last year. While it features a main theme by Nobuo Uematsu that sounds a lot like Iron Chef, the true ...


E3: New details on Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS is not playable on the show floor at E3. Let me say that again: Paper Mario: Sticker Star is not playable. WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?! Of all the games here at E3, I was really hoping to get some time wit...


E3: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate preview

I am exceptionally wary of ridiculously titled games. They have a tendency to be exceptionally awful. Still, I made an attempt to swallow my prejudice and dig into the latest installment in the Castlevania series.  I played both Sympho...


E3: Amazing Spider-Man looks so damn good

Seriously, just watch the video that's made up of all in-game footage. It feels so good knowing there's an open world Spider-Man game once again. Hopefully the end products ends up being worth it. What I played was awesome, but it's hard t...


E3: What's new with Skylanders Giants

Did you know that last year's Skylanders: Spryo's Adventure had the best single-year sales of any new children's IP ever in America? I figured the game would do well, but not to such a crazy extent! Obviously, Activision has a successful ne...


E3: Putting the 'amazing' back in The Amazing Spider-Man

The Spider-Man videogames have been a roller coaster of real fun highs and "Why did I just waste $60 on this?" lows. Thankfully, The Amazing Spider-Man is somewhere in the "real fun highs" category, at least based on what I played recently...


Preview: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Batman's back (in LEGO form) and he brought his friends along for sequel in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Not just Robin, though. Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are among the blocky heroes, and The Joker and Lex Luthor have...


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...


Preview: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Few developers have a large enough catalog of praised franchises that they can make entire games featuring a variety of their own iconic characters. Nintendo is obviously the leading company that has made a habit of doing this regularly, a...


Preview: Thundercats for the DS is a simple beat 'em up

As a big fan of the old school Thundercats, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the new Thundercats series is. Namco Bandai is working on a simple beat 'em up for the DS that ties in with the new series and it's not that bad. When I say ...


Multiplayer and more with Kid Icarus: Uprising

It goes without saying that Nintendo has a lot riding on the revival of their winged warrior in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It’s the first major, first-party release of the year for the thriving 3DS and something even more important to t...


Preview: Mixing it up with MLB 2K12

This is the third year in a row that 2K Sports is holding its Perfect Game Challenge for its MLB 2K series. They're changing the format this time, but previously, the first person to throw a verified perfect game would win $1 million for do...


Preview: Devil Survivor 2 is great, has high-set boobs

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor was like a dream come true for me. One of my most-loved game makers took my favorite genre (strategy role-playing) and fused it with the demon collecting fun and turn-based battles of other Shin Megami Ten...


Preview: Two hours of flight with Kid Icarus: Uprising

"I can't believe I'm actually flying!" These are some of the first words that Nintendo's, once forgotten hero, Pit utters in disbelief during the opening moments of Kid Icarus: Uprising -- his long awaited return to the forefront of videoga...


VVVVVV for the 3DS is... well, it's VVVVVV

During the eShop preview event, Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis was on hand to demonstrate the 3DS iteration of the revered, renowned, and hard-as-balls VVVVVV. I can confirm here officially - the game is still as insanely difficult and as infu...


Colors! 3D lets you doodle in three dimensions

One of the most exciting eShop games I had a chance to preview last week wasn't actually a game. It was an application and a continuation of a fan favorite DS homebrew app that never carried over to DSiWare (though it did make it's way over...

Hot Take: I like games and have seen some nice ass

Sir Shenanigans

I’ve been really down on Dad of War, largely due to my indifference towards the previous games, but this really grabs my 4/20 might be *lit* for more reason than one!
