Japanese man spends $6,065 on mobile game in one night

Granblue Fantasy is huge in Japan. Brett wanted to know what the gigantic (air)ship covered in cat girls (models) was in one of Tokyo Game Show's massive halls last year and it was a Granblue Fantasy booth. And, incidentally, given its name...

 
Hardware Review
Some people spend hundreds of pounds/dollars[insert your denomination here] on a headset. Me? I spend enough on consoles and subscriptions and games and t-shirts and Pop Vinyl figures as it is. So while I’m content enou...   read

Still playing Fallout Shelter? 'Cause it has a whole bunch of new stuff

Fallout Shelter has been out for almost nine months, but it's just now getting its largest update ever. That's probably a good thing for the people who are still playing virtual vault overseer. A little shake-up has to be widely welcom...

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...

Samsung's new phone has video games in mind

Today, Samsung revealed the Galaxy S7 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Although the phone brings back multiple features missing from the S6, including water resistance, it contains multiple game-centric features that move t...

Fallout Shelter convinced Bethesda to make more mobile games

Last year's E3 Eve surprise reveal and release of Fallout Shelter was a good move for Bethesda. The mobile game was an immediate hit, and it didn't take long before it was wildly profitable. Within days, it had supplanted Candy Crush S...

There's going to be a RuneScape idle game

As far as incremental games go, AdVenture Capitalist was one of the most effective at reeling me in and holding tight. We had such a lovely capture bond for a while there. The team behind that title, Hyper Hippo, is continuing its work in t...

 
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy IX is one of my least-played games in the series. I don't really have a good reason for that. Maybe when I was younger, a fantastic tale about a monkey-tailed horndog thief flirting with a princess (and eve...   read

OK K.O!: Cartoon Network made its own, original game

How many Adventure Time games has WayForward done now? Thirteen? Twenty-seven? It makes sense. Its original anime like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Steven Universe are hits. But why have someone else make the games when you can get the...

Downwell is falling onto Android devices today

We all seem to love mobile rogue-lite Downwell here at Destructoid, what with it getting both a 10/10 score in Steven’s review and winning our mobile game of the year award. It’s just a shame that up to now it’s been an iO...

Use this code for 3,000 coins in Pokemon Shuffle

You can never have enough coins in Pokemon Shuffle, particularly if you're playing on mobile and are trying to catch 'em all, which I foolishly am. There's no escaping this fate, but I've come to accept that. After spending I don't even wan...

Here's a snippet of that Wyclef Jean song from Lost in Harmony

Yoan Fanise (Valiant Hearts: The Great War) broke from Ubisoft last year to form Digixart Entertainment, and the studio's first game is out on iOS devices today. Lost in Harmony looks like a decent rhythm game/Battletoads bike section, but ...

Surprise? FNaF World is out early

A week ago Jordan reported that FNaF World would be out on February 19th but it wouldn't be a Five Nights at Freddy's game without a sudden, “surprising” release date now would it? FnaF World in all its weird, cute, JRPG-ness ca...

Wayward Souls' next update brings pets, prepares for PC port

We're about a month out from Five Nights at Freddy's World

What the heck is up with the new Five Nights at Freddy's? Will it be an honest-to-goodness JRPG as originally shown, or is there something more sinister underneath that suspiciously upbeat veneer? Either way, I'm curious to see how fans wil...
