The Culling was born of frustration. It began life as a co-operative alternative to survival games where players regularly screw each other over, like Rust or DayZ. But then as it became apparent that human nature i... read
I nearly crushed a small Japanese man while playing a VR game. This was embarrassing, so naturally I had to publish it for all of YouTube. "A typical day," he said politely, shoving my fat ass back to where my dignity wa... read
If everybody was super happy all the time, the world would be a better place, right? But what if that happiness was forced upon society in the form of a drug? Things may not actually be as pleasant as they seem.

I had the opportunity to check out the upcoming virtual reality build of Hitman GO at PAX East.
Not much can be said about this new version of the game other than "It sure is Hitman GO in VR all right." All the... read
Compared to many of the Monster Hunter fans out there, I've only gotten into the series recently. I played it briefly during the PSP days, but it wasn't until Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter ... read
When I was growing up, there were Sega kids and Nintendo kids. Initially I was part of the latter clan, before wising up and embracing all walks of gaming. All of those conversations about how Sonic was cooler than Mario, or ... read
We’re drowning in a sea of MOBAs. Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, the list goes on and on and on. So it’s really nice to see Trion, developer of Rift and Trove, try something slightly differ... read
EVE Online developer CCP has a new first-person shooter but there's a chance no one will ever get to play it unless they happen to be in Reykjavik, Iceland this weekend. Project Nova is the name of the game, a monik... read
Too many horror games and movies these days rely on jump scares as their only real source of fear. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, they really are cheap and easy. Recently there has been a resurgence in med... read
Our press bus sidles up to an unassuming office building in the heart of historic downtown Raleigh. Far from the bright lights and costly office spaces of LA or San Francisco, Boss Key Productions, Cliffy B's new studio, is h... read
Last year's The Show was born on third thinking it hit a triple and it's not like MLB The Show 16 feels substantially different, though it has cleaned its game up and graciously eased up a bit on the crazy, stat-buffing brand... read
Remember that classic racing game Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road? You know, the game where you race tiny trucks across dirt tracks while using turbo boosts to catch some sick air over bumps in the road.
Call of Duty continues to be a cultural phenomenon, but often with a negative connotation. It sells like hotcakes sure, but I have trouble tracking down people in my actual life that play those games. At this point, the ... read
Leave it to Venture Beat, a site literally named after the plutocratic Dutch rudder that is venture capital ("It's like Uber, but for keeping me from sitting on my own balls!"), to host a this staggeringly wrong-headed op-ed ... read
April 15 was my favorite day of 2016. Not only did it mark the return of the hilarious Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix, but here in the States we finally got Bravely Second: End Layer.
As the sequel to one of t... read
Okay, I'll level with you. I'm not a professional at Street Fighter V. What I am pretty good at is being decent. I've collected resources that have helped me go from "utterly hopeless" as an Alex player to "hey, I think I understand this guy!" and now I'm here to pass the knowledge on to you! read
I've made no secret of my love for The Chinese Room's Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
Steven wasn't a huge fan of it in his review, but I gave it my personal game of the year award last year. I've also been following pretty... read
Phantasmal: City of Darkness has a killer pitch. A procedurally generated horror game that takes its inspiration from games like Silent Hill and horror staples like the novels of H.P. Lovecraft, set in the extra super spooky ... read
It's only fitting that right as an exciting new roguelike enters my life and rekindles my interest in the genre, an old favorite comes calling. Lately, Risk of Rain has been eating up evenings that would otherwise be wasted o... read
These last few weeks have been very kind to my gaming phalanges. After upgrading from a bargain basement mouse and keyboard combination, I upgraded to Logitech's G610 Orion Brown and G900 Chaos Spectrum. Obviously, such ... read
Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a p... read

For the last couple months, I've been using a $2 keyboard that I bought because I built a PC with leftover parts I had, and needed something functional for Destructoid. While my main PC has a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, that's... read
Gaming peripherals, on the whole, can be pretty dang expensive. If it isn’t a £150 keyboard, it’s a £200 pair of headphones, or maybe even an £800 VR headset. Add all the different bits-and-bobs ... read
Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is a frustrating game. Not because it’s difficult (it sure isn’t) and not because of its nonsense mouthful of a title (although that sure doesn’t help). It’s frustrat... read

Those who are on the fence with virtual reality typically cite a dissonance between the actual state of a real-life subject compared to the actions taking place in-game. In other words, outside of the HTC Vive, most VR h... read
Roguelikes, bullet hells, twin-stick shooters.
If you like or have an interest in any of those words, buy this game. Don't even bother reading the rest of this review as you're only wasting time precious time you could be spending with Enter the Gungeon. read
I was so stoked to finally see Dreamweaver sharing his artwork with the community that I had the urge to try drawing his catgirl OC, Mayuki, So if youre reading this Dream, consider it a gift from one fledgling artist to another!
Welp, Phantasy Star Online 2 failed to run and accuses a missing Either I somehow fucked up when installing or I just need to update Checking for missing game files right now , it is so Current status:
Holy shit! Konami has announced a new game? And its coming to every Sony console AND every Nintendo one?! And its from an old Huson Soft IP?!? And its NOT Bomberman?!?! EDIT: And it may just be a PS2 port somehow severely mislabeled on top of that?!
My best friend (who introduced me to Dtoid) is developing a game and could use some feedback on his It means so much to me that he succeeds that Im using my 200th QP! Any feedback you leave here Ill pass onto him
I predict the new Battlefield this year will probably be a 2142 sequel, because futuristic shooters are currently in and EA is playing If that ends up being I think they lost a hell of an opportunity for not releasing a sequel for it
I streamed and beat an awesome indie game windowframe, where the window width is used as a weapon and obstacle, streamed part four of Amazing Frog (I unlocked the city and found a boat by getting enough points) + replayed Dead Bits (why? idk)
