Garden Warfare 2 review
Chris and I were thinking about holding a fight to the death to determine which of us would get first dibs on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, as is the traditional way to end internal kerfuffles at Destructoid, but we called it off at the last minute. We realized we could both do the review, together, and I wouldn't have to die.   read

Fire Emblem Fates
It's been a rather productive past few weeks! In addition to having plenty of time to play through both versions of Fire Emblem Fates, I also had the opportunity to take on Revelation -- the third story in the series. Li...   read

Fire Emblem Fates
After delivering one of its best strategy games in years with Fire Emblem Awakening, I couldn't help but think "how could they top this?" Awakening had pretty much everything you could want -- an intriguing cast embroiled in ...   read

Street Fighter V
I've been really excited for Street Fighter V. Street Fighter IV is the only game I’ve ever plugged enough hours and practice into to play somewhat competitively. At my first tournament, I got beaten by a guy dressed as...   read

Fallout 4
Bethesda is done with the "Mystery Season Pass" nonsense. At least, partially, as it has detailed the first three (of four, originally, but read on to see how plans have changed) DLCs coming to Fallout 4. The initial offering...   read

XCOM 2 tips
Even if you're a veteran of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2 is likely to catch you off guard. The aliens are a meaner, sneakier lot this time out, and it's going to take every dirty trick in the book to keep up with them. The XCO...   read

Street Fighter V review
I've been playing Street Fighter as long as I can remember, and nearly everyone I've met has had a different approach to it. That's the power of this franchise -- for every person who swears by Blanka, there was someone ...   read

XCOM 2 review

Review: XCOM 2

XCOM 2 is a frustrating game, and not just due to the infamous difficulty the franchise is known for. It's frustrating because there is an absolutely fantastic game at its core, a total improvement on what was already one of ...   read

Hitman hands-on
Have you ever wondered just how Cueball McFurrowed-Brow became the famously good killing man of the Hitman series' glory years? Of fucking course not, which is why the need to string Hitman: Absolution together into some S&am...   read

Warriors review
Koei Tecmo is killing it in the beat-'em-up action space. While a lot of detractors erroneously claim that all Warriors games are "mindless button mashers," the studio has managed to keep the series interesting for nearl...   read

Assassin's Creed review
Assassin's Creed Chronicles had a nice thing going on with China and India, delivering some of the classic stealth action the series is known for with a striking new art style and a shift to 2D action. Now Ubisoft i...   read

Firewatch, with me!

Review: Firewatch

The drunk, nude teens bathing in the lake at sunset summed up Firewatch neatly: "you're just some sad man out in the woods." Kids always know just where to cut. If you could translate the insult quadrant of their brains you'd...   read

Unravel review

Review: Unravel

At first glance Unravel feels akin to LittleBigPlanet with its adorably miniature yarn-clad mascot, but don’t let it fool you. It’s a heartfelt story with little communication beyond imprinted memories, woven with...   read

Naruto
Almost a decade ago, in my mid-teens, I was hugely into Naruto. As a socially awkward nerd who had just discovered that Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon were part of a larger media genre, I spent years avidly following the adven...   read

Nitroplus Blasterz Review
I recently attended a tribute night at a local brewery, where musicians were invited to serenade patrons with songs from the '70s. Early on that evening, I glanced around the darkened beer hall to discover I was a few decades...   read

Call of Duty DLC review
It's still crazy to me that I'm loading up a Call of Duty DLC pack first on PlayStation 4. After years of Microsoft-dominated timed exclusivity Sony finally has its shot at heading it up, and it has perfect timing with Black Ops III. As one of the best Call of Duty games in years, it allows Awakening plenty of room to breathe, and lets Treyarch be its unconventional self.   read

LEGO Marvel's Avengers
The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate television shows with multiple seasons across two networks. If you haven't been at least following the movies, LEGO Marvel's Avengers probably isn't for you.   read

American Truck Sim Review
I live in New Jersey, so I think I know a thing or two about California. After all, I've listened to plenty of N.W.A. and Tupac, plus I've seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High.  Oh, and I've been to California a whole lot to visit my brother and for that one E3 I attended. Does this make me an expert? Yes. Yes it does.   read

Tomb Raider PC Port
After being an Xbox One exclusive for all of five minutes, Rise of the Tomb Raider is finally making its way to PC. As the follow-up to the popular 2013 reboot, it certainly had a lot to live up to. Back when it originally la...   read

True Crime
When I start looking into a story that I know will go much longer than my average Destructoid news post, I like to get as hands-on as possible. I don't just want to read a bunch of other articles about the subject in question...   read

The Witness
I've put a lot of time into The Witness lately. Like, a lot a lot. Effort too. This might be the most draining review experience of my career. It's rewarding though, and that makes it less burdensome even if it...   read

Final Fantasy review
If one wanted to delve into the world of Final Fantasy for the first time, the barrier to entry is generally rather high. You have a host of 50-hour JRPGs, several daunting MMOs, and a number of complicated and deep tactical spinoffs. Final Fantasy Explorers tries to ease people into the world of Black and White mages with a different, gentler approach, albeit with its own set of flaws.   read

Witness review
I am worthless. I am garbage. I am a dolt. I am brilliant. I am special. I am a genius. Those are the two extremes of self-value that The Witness constantly inflicts. It's a continuous loop of not getting it until you totally get it. Then, you don't get it again.   read

Tom Clancy's The Division
A couple weeks back, I went to a Ubisoft event to play Tom Clancy's The Division. You can find my overall impressions here (Choice quote: "There are quite a few options that assist in your eradication of the homeless and dise...   read

Deadly Tower review
I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who had a penchant for classic films, and B-humor. Hell, their first date was Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and as a child, I was raised with an endearment to the craft,...   read

Resident Evil 0 HD review
For whatever reason, I didn't end up completing Resident Evil Zero back when it was released in 2002 -- in fact, it took me 10 years to truly dive into it. I think it just flew under the radar, but thankfully Capcom has opted...   read

Gravity Rush Remastered
Gravity Rush is and remains one of the coolest games on the PS Vita, even three years after its original 2012 release. Unfortunately for fans of cool games, the PS Vita didn't get into nearly as many hands as Sony was ho...   read

Dragon's Dogma PC
Why didn't anyone tell me Dragon's Dogma was so amazing?! I missed out on the original back in 2012, and I hadn't really heard much about it in the first place. I knew, vaguely, what it was, and had even downloaded it vi...   read

Oxenfree Review

Review: Oxenfree

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A group of teenagers head to a remote, nearly abandoned tourist trap for a night of wild partying. Not long after they get there though, odd things start to happen. Unsettling things. ...   read

Tom Clancy's The Division
A week or so ago I drove through Hell Niño in Los Angeles to get my hands on Tom Clancy's The Division in a 2002 Dodge Neon with bad windshield wipers. Let no one ever deny that I am committed. Alongside Ubisoft reps, ...   read
