When Nintendo announced its DLC plans for Mario Kart 8, there was a combination of collective groans and cheers across the internet. The latter group was on the right side of history, it seems. When the first DLC Pack dr...


 

Mario Kart 8 feels fresh again and not just because of the fabulous new tracks added in this week's Animal Crossing-themed DLC Pack 2. Nintendo also unleashed the humbling 200cc class in a free update for the game. We saw the...


 

There's a special Nintendo Direct going on right now for Xenoblade Chronicles X. As someone who has paid little attention thus far, I have no idea what's happening despite the Direct's best attempts at setting the stage and l...


 

Super Smash Bros. had some issues at launch with people getting banned for using certain characters, and with the debut of the Mewtwo DLC came another problem. The glitch lied in playing Mewtwo offline, which led the game to ...


 

Some time ago Nintendo unveiled amiibo Tap, a new app that would allow you to play demos from classic retro games by touching a figure to the Wii U GamePad. It doesn't seem like certain figures will line up with specific gam...

Infinite runners have their place in gaming. After Canabalt, a seemingly endless stream of 2D endless runners showed up for a piece of the action. After Temple Run, the same happened for behind-the-back 3D runners. Infinity R...


 

Surprise! WayForward is bringing Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to Steam on April 24, 2015. Having failed to nab the well-received game twice now -- first on 3DS, and then again on Wii U -- perhaps Steam will make all the dif...


 

The biggest story last week was Mortal Kombat X's handling of downloadable content. Warner Bros. should relinquish itself of its greed and earthly possessions. That is the first step on the path to Enlightenment. In this ser...

A friend of mine got a good deal on a Wii U recently. That meant that I finally got a chance to play Captain Toad. It's really humbling to know that people at Nintendo have also played Monument Valley. I played through a bunc...


 

It doesn’t seem too long ago that Nintendo were struggling. With the slow sales of the Wii U that hit profits back in 2013 and the dwinding 3DS user base in 2014, It looked like the little (pfffft) company that could un...


 

Ever since the big Kickstarter boom of 2012, there's never been a short supply of developers looking to get their next title going through crowdfunding. From metroidvania action-RPG titles referencing the golden years of game...


 

I'll admit it -- when I first heard about Project CARS, I didn't give it much thought. It doesn't help that the name is fairly ho hum, and it's been ages since developer Slightly Mad Studios worked on Need for Speed...

This showed up a few days ago in the ol' Destructoid inbox, and it sure has a look to it. I'm picking up a lot of Zelda in the above Kickstarter trailer, but also hints of Fable and Minecraft too. It's got floating islands (...


 

As Konami is seemingly intent on giving Metal Gear's Hideo Kojima the boot (this is a Simpsons Australia joke despite Bayou Billy being from Louisiana), many are mourning one of the most memorable videogame companies falling ...


 

Elliot Quest is a retro-inspired Metroidvania title that feels right at home on the Wii U, as it takes a lot of inspiration from such NES classics as Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Kid Icarus. I'd even venture to ...


 

The Wii version of Rodea: The Sky Soldier, shown above, will be the only version to feature multiplayer. Up to four players can race to the end of five levels. The Wii U and 3DS versions of the game are lacking multiplayer e...


 

Ever wanted to see your favorite Beard Buddy get sloppy drunk while driving a gay car and giving it a handjob? Be at our Twitch channel tonight at 12AM ET / 9PM PT where I'll be doing just that with the recently released Stic...


 

I've got a soft spot for sidescrolling strategy games like Swords & Soldiers. Maybe you do too. While they typically aren't as deep as their 3D contemporaries, they scratch a certain itch and can be hard to put down once ...


 

Yesterday, Nintendo unleashed hell on earth pre-orders for Wave 4 amiibo figures. The current lineup includes Robin, Lucina, Ness, Pac-Man, Charizard, Wario, Jigglypuff, Greninja, and three Splatoon flavored toys.
