Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Watching the original Berserk anime for the first time had a profound impact on me. I had seen bleak or otherwise violent films like Starship Troopers before as a youngster, but gazing upon Berserk was the first time I had felt li...

PlayStation Plus' lineup for February is pretty decent

For a couple of months now, Microsoft has been outdoing Sony on the front of free games for subscribers. While the February lineup for Xbox Live Gold is decent, Sony actually managed to pull out the stops and provide a better month for its ...

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...

Review: Dragon Quest Builders

Once it hit me that Dragon Quest Builders was essentially a 3D remake of the first game (and technically a sequel at the same time), it blew me away. I mean, you get a sense of that from the initial 30 minutes so it's not really a secr...

Review: MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death

When I'm reviewing a game, I keep a notebook for any information or anecdotes about it I want to remember when it actually sit down to type the review out. Scribbled on these pages will be names of places and characters so I don't forget, f...

Review: God Eater 2: Rage Burst

It hasn't been too long since I reviewed God Eater Resurrection, and in that review, I noted that the long time it's taken for a God Eater game to appear on English-speaking shores helped make the game seem fresh and new all over again...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X

The kawaii queen and her Vocaloid cronies are back to pleasure your earlobes with their magical robo-voices for the first time on PlayStation 4, and the third time on PlayStation Vita. That's right, the PS4 finally has an exclusive music an...

Review: Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan got really big really fast after the anime debuted, and it didn't take long to reach its saturation point. I mean, the show gets decent near the end but there's so much wasted time before that, and even the manga (which is n...

 
 
Adventures of Mana reivew photo

Review: Adventures of Mana

Some classic games remain just as enjoyable today as they were decades ago. But time, being the cruel mistress that it is, does not allow everything to age quite so gracefully. As the years march on, some old favorites no longer look as sha...

Review: Gal Gun: Double Peace

I didn't think anyone else at Destructoid would be interested in reviewing Gal*Gun: Double Peace. I've become the defacto niche Japanese game reviewer somehow and this title, with its scantily clad teenage girls you pleasure with your shots...

 
 
God Eater Resurrection photo

Review: God Eater Resurrection

It's been quite a long time since Bandai Namco first threw its hat into the monster-hunting ring with God Eater, and since then the landscape has changed. Monster Hunter itself moved to the Nintendo 3DS, a whole new generation of conso...

Yep, Berserk Warriors is confirmed for the west

So, Berserk Musou guys. It just shot up on my most anticipated games of 2016 list in an instant. I was all set to import it on PS4 too, but Koei Tecmo just re-confirmed that it is in fact coming west in the form of a trailer on their A...

 
 
Odin Sphere review photo

Review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

There are very few games that grab me based on the box art, but I can recall digging Odin Sphere out of a bargain bin (!) so many years back, both my wife and I's mouths agape after picking it up. A Valkyrie, a brooding warrior, a bunny, a ...

 
 
 
Severed photo

Review: Severed

When Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee! came out three years ago (blarg), Jonathan Holmes called it a "sugar skull-covered playground to delight in and devour with mucho gusto," and I'd agree with that assessment. Vibrant colors, a won...

Review: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

We've all heard the expression "sex sells." It's the idea that our brains are so hardwired toward carnal pleasures that we'll buy anything so long as there is a pretty face and a nice ass we can associate with it. But let's be honest, that'...

 
 
Salt and Sanctuary photo

Review: Salt and Sanctuary

Chris Carter may seem like the only Souls guy around here, but there are more of us lurking in the shadows, wishing we could review them too. When I saw that Ska Studios of Dishwasher fame was making its own 2D take on the Souls f...

 
 
The Bit.Trip review photo

Review: The Bit.Trip

The Bit.Trip series holds a special place in my heart. With a wonderful blend of rhythm-based mechanics and arcade-style gameplay spanning various genres, the games are easy to pick up, quick to fall in love with, and yet incredibly difficu...

 
 
SteamWorld Heist review photo

Review: SteamWorld Heist

SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a completely differ...

 
 
 
Shovel Knight DLC review photo

Review: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

I can't believe it's been over a year since Shovel Knight released -- time flies, right? Over the course of that year, I've beaten it on every conceivable platform outside of the PC edition, playing it over and over again, even ta...

 
 
One Piece review photo

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3

I haven't kept entirely up to date with One Piece, but I do read the summaries, and have caught most of the earlier arcs. It's a daunting task (the series has been running since 1997) in terms of the anime, and there's lots of filler involv...
