You've heard of thinking outside the box, but have you heard of thinking outside the sausage? 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
I'm assuming I'm the exact target audience for Wasteland Workshop. I'm the guy who never quite finished the main quest of Fallout 4 because I got too invested in establishing and kitting out every settlement I could. I'm the ... read
Bravely Default really came out at the perfect time. The "Four Warriors of Light" and "Crystal" themes called out to RPG fans that were pining for the glory days, free from modern conveniences and a return to the turn-based s... read
Last year, when the arrival of retail VR headsets was still a pipe dream of the distant future, one of my biggest questions for the tech is how it would impact game design going forward. Would games have to fundamentally chan... 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
I've always believed I could get into any video game genre if I could just find the right title to introduce me. After years of trying to get into farming simulators, Rune Factory 4 finally made the genre click with... read
Is there something you just love no matter how shitty you know it is? For example, marshmallow Peeps and candy corn.
Epic Dumpster Bear is a Wii U exclusive, and it is epically shitty, but I kind of like it. Somet... read
I have no particular affinity towards the Ratchet & Clank series. I've played just about every mascot platformer under the sun, but I was always more of a Jak and Daxter man, among a litany of other classics. No... read
It seems lately we're in the Renaissance period for nostalgia and reimaginings of successful properties from the '90s. NightCry is one such game among this movement, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror series wh... read
If you tried to tell me that they were going to resurrect Killer Instinct as a free-to-play game and have it be successful, I simply wouldn't believe you. The original had all but faded into obscurity outside of the "c-c-c-combo breaker!" meme that permeated the Internet.
Yet, here we are, with Season 3 upon us, and it's one of my favorite fighting games on the market. read
Fifteen years. Fifteen years! She got one of your kids, got you for -- wait, no. That's how long it's been since we've seen a new Baldur's Gate game. The Enhanced Editions have been kind enough to grace our presence recently, giving us a strong reason to revisit the series, but there's never really been a big draw to playing those editions over the modded originals.
Until now! read
As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That might have happened with Minecraft: Story Mode. The first four episodes of the season released within two and a half months of one another, and I had been pret... 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
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
Quantum Break is a video game that is not comfortable being only a video game. Born from Microsoft's now-abandoned cross-media initiative, Quantum Break is many things, only a fraction of them being a video game. It... 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
Outer Rim is a better beginning to the Star Wars Battlefront season pass than I thought it'd be.
The DLC adds Nien Nunb and Greedo as hero and villain characters, respectively; four smaller-scale maps spread across Tattooine ... read
The post-apocalypse is the new WWII -- the overused, thoroughly played-out, exhausted setting that too many games and movies muck around in. We've seen it all: zombies, mutants, raiders, and hell, even dinosaurs. It's hard to... read
Computer programming is a lot like a puzzle. An individual program has a main goal to accomplish, and getting there requires a set of pieces executed in a particular order. It takes a certain part of the brain to think ahead,... read
The first time I tried out the HTC Vive back at EGX 2015, I was absolutely blown away by the leap in gaming technology it presented. I spent half an hour painting in thin air, helping land aircraft safely, reeling back from s... read
It's safe to say that some people have been experiencing Souls fatigue. I mean, in the last two years, if you count a remake, there have been three retail Souls games (Dark Souls II, Scholar, and Bloodborne), on top... read
Have you ever wanted a giant bean bag chair shaped more like a pillow intended for a mythical giant? Do you wish your furniture could be mashed into different shapes and sizes like Play-Doh?
Then you might want to consider the Omni Plus Bean Bag by Sumo. read
"Hacking" is a gaming term that almost always initiates a series of groans from players. Usually forced in as a ham-handed minigame, I don't have many fond memories of hacking outside of a few clever uses of the mechanic like... read
I may not be the biggest fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd, but I've seen enough of the web series to get a good idea of what the Nerd is all about. I enjoy some aspects of it, such as his wild facial expressions and his criti... read
You’d be forgiven for thinking MMO mice are a daft idea. Taking a perfectly good mouse and ramming in a load of tiny buttons right where your thumb sits sounds like it would be a recipe for disaster.
At least, that’s what I thought until I got my hands on the Roccat Nyth modular gaming mouse. This thing’s great. read
Having dabbled in every launch title for the Oculus Rift, I've been relatively impressed with the lot of them. They either have something unique to offer to gaming in general, or are retrofitted with a VR perspective in a way that doesn't feel forced.
The same can't really be said of Smashing the Battle. read
Telltale was never going to top the Walking Dead series proper with their three part Michonne series. It was always presented as a sort of tertiary tale, a gaiden that followed in the footsteps of the star, partially tied to the comic series.
The first episode reflected that spinoff mentality. So does the second, for that matter, to a greater extent. read
A lot of parents give their children curfews. Mine certainly did. They advised me to return home before dark, lest risk being eaten by one of the mountain lions that patrolled our neighborhood after dusk.
That grim warning, t... read
Just finished Episode 4 of Tales from the Will plan to finish the game Its been fun, though admittedly, Im disappointed that Episode 1 was the best so Cant wait to see how it ends though! I wish Rhys x Fiona was a thing
After what BioShock Infinite did to BioShock (turned it into Call of Duty, among other things), Im afraid of what Infinite Warfare will do to actual Call of Maybe it will die to be reborn in the glory of CoD2 and Modern Warfare?
Why am I all of a sudden into Ultimate Muscle? Why do I want to get the GameCube game so badly? Will I have soup or some custom pigs in blankets for lunch tomorrow? Do I prefer Alien or Blade Runner? These are the questions Im asking right now
Ive come to the realization that Speed Racer was an underrated Even as a kid I could tell that it had an avant-garde I really feel like its a purely post-ironic A movie for a time when being sincere is Go Speed Racer
