N++ is going to break me, but I'm okay with that

One of the games I knew I had to check out at the Indie Megabooth this PAX Prime was N++. I liked its predecessor on Xbox Live Arcade a great deal, which is to say it infuriated the hell out of me but was satisfying beyond wo...

Mighty No. 9 feels great, but the core concepts take some getting used to
by Chris Carter

Mighty No. 9 is probably one of the most anticipated games of 2015. After a massive Kickstarter, creator Inafune and developers Comcept and Inti Creates have kicked off a long line of products to hype it up, including Mighty Gunvolt and a potential cartoon.

After all that hype though we finally have a chance to play the game. I have to say, it has the feel of a Mega Man game, but a few aspects definitely took some getting used to.

Here are Destructoid's top ten games from PAX Prime 2014
by Brett Makedonski

PAX is always a wonderful show because of the way that it melds the presence of both the industry's largest games and the smallest developers. Into giant triple-A titles? Yup, PAX has plenty of that for you to get your hands on. Indie or experimental stuff more your speed? Fret not, there are tons of hidden gems at every turn to keep you constantly busy.

Unsurprisingly, we found some amazing stuff from both categories. In no particular order, these were Destructoid's top ten games from PAX Prime 2014.

Geometry Wars 3 may look different, but it feels right photo
Geometry Wars 3 may look different, but it feels right
by Jordan Devore

There was some initial skepticism when it came to Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions and its so-called "3D action." For starters, it's been several years since the last games entered our lives to rekindle old leaderboard feuds. There was also confusion surrounding developer Lucid Games who, as it turns out, is made up of former Bizarre Creations staff.

Even if I hadn't known that fact going in, I like to think I would've picked up on it instinctively during a hands-on session at PAX Prime. Despite a few significant changes such as the shift from a flat playing field to planet-like 3D stages, Dimensions unmistakably feels like Geometry Wars.

Super Famicom box art book project is on Kickstarter

Anyone who lived during the Super Famicom/SNES era remembers some great boxart. Although the NES era was subject to some pretty questionable boxes in its day, many developers wised up and didn't mind getting a little more car...

The Mighty No. 9 playable beta launches today
by Chris Carter

If you're interested in Mighty No. 9 and pledged at least $80 to its Kickstarter, check your email today -- you may have gotten a beta key. Redeemable on Steam, this key will allow you to play a single level from an early version of the game, which will show off Mighty No. 9's core mechanics.

Feedback will help shape the final release, and another "level or two" may come to the beta, according to producer Inafune. Stay tuned for later today -- I'll have a full write-up of the beta.
