Shantae: Half-Genie Hero's DLC gets a little Risky

Amidst the chaos of Sony's E3 conference, Wayforward let loose the reveal trailer for the upcoming DLC expansion to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero called Pirate Queen's Quest. It looks like the story will run parallel to the events of the main ga...

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below not only launched with one of the worst subtitles in gaming history, but some design flaws. Some stemmed directly from latent problems with Omega Force's approach to hack-and-sl...

Review: Toukiden 2

Games of the hunting genre, often referred to as “Monster Hunter clones,” are still among those foreign video game curiosities that just can't seem to grab western audiences the way it has in Japan. One of the main reasons why i...

Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...

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: 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...

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...

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 ...

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'...

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...
