Put on your skepticals, E3 season is upon us

Everyone's favorite yearly blowout is here once again! A time of hype and disappointment, E3 never ceases to surprise me in at least one way. Last year was the reveal of Monster Hunter: World. That threw me off my seat when that was announc...

Bloggers Wanted: Free-to-play

Free-to-play for the longest time has been this dangerous buzzword that meant a lot of things. Utter the term free-to-play and people immediately think of words like predatory, pay-to-win, microtransactions, and generally bad games. At leas...

What have you loved most about God of War so far? (Spoilers)

While there were plenty of people initially skeptical of its tonal shift, there's no denying that God of War has really taken off. Although quite a few members of the community had said they had no interest, the Quick Posts on Destructoid a...

Is World your first Monster Hunter game?

If Monster Hunter: World is your first Monster Hunter game, you may have occasionally seen this question floating around: what was your first Monster Hunter game and what weapon did you start with? It's interesting. While I haven't seen thi...

Bloggers wanted: The heel-turn

Last week, in the quick posts of Destructoid's community, we saw the rise and fall of community manager Wesley J. Russow. He rose to prominence with his immutable power, only to see it come crashing down as the working class clambered benea...

Is the community excited for Dragon Ball FighterZ?

The past open beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ felt a little tumultuous, but ultimately enlightening. After a rough first day, a brief extension allowed a larger swathe of interested Z fighters to get their hands on a couple of matches, traini...

Do you have friends who got you into certain video games?

A week before Monster Hunter: World launches, I look back on my time with the series. The demo for 4U was amazing, to be sure, but what's Monster Hunter without camaraderie? The hooks were in, but they wouldn't be in deep and barbed if it w...

Marcel's Dtoid 2017 Yearbook of Games

2017 may collectively become known as the simultaneous best and worst year of the past decade. While the lineup of games throughout the year hasn't been this strong since 1997, the real world has also been a shit show. There were dozens of ...

Have you ever settled an argument with video games?

This past week, I was handed a story from Soranews24 of a tweet about a Japanese father. What followed was his own personal chronicle of how he met his daughter's boyfriend and challenged him to a match of Guilty Gear as a show of dominance...

What does the community think of Super Mario Odyssey?

For me personally, there are two big marquee games that defined the Nintendo Switch's explosive entrance onto the scene this year. First was a right-straight with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, followed by an uppercut later with S...

What are the community's favorite horror settings?

It's been almost a whole year since I purchased Bloodborne, got slaughtered in Central Yharnam, and put the game down. But ever since October started, I managed to push through my previous failures and finally experience Yharnam in all its ...

What are some of your favorite game visuals?

In my circle of friends, I can't stop singing the praises of Cuphead. Asides from its rewarding challenge of overcoming some splendidly designed boss encounters, its distinct 1930s cartoon aesthetic is unique and hard to compare to anything...

Bloggers Wanted: Fake it until you make it

This month's bloggers wanted prompt is something we stole. You see, by stealing this idea, you have no idea how truly inept I actually am. By pretending to know what I'm doing, I have clearly used my ill-gotten status to meet such big-time ...

Where do you draw the line between exploit and tech?

While reading SRK earlier this week I found out somebody pocketed $10,000 in winnings at a For Honor tournament celebrating the mark of season 3. But it wasn't a story of blood, sweat, and tears like some rise to the top at EVO. Jakub ...

What does the community think of death in video games?

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was not at all on my radar when it released a couple weeks ago. But it suddenly exploded in my feed when people talked about how dying works in the game and the fail states associated with it. After a few days o...

Do you watch video games?

I subscribe to the school of thought that normal on-air television is something I don't want to pay money for. After the game changed thanks to Netflix, I cut the cable and made the majority of my television time exclusively streaming. But ...

What does the community think of Splatoon 2?

Splatoon, to me, was a big hit for Nintendo Wii U. A fresh new idea during a time when the most common complaint leveled against the company was the reusing of old IPs and re-releasing the same sequels over and over. So it's no surpris...

Who are you hoping gets into BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle?

I think it's safe to say that nobody was expecting a game like BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle to be announced. Not just BlazBlue, riding off the wave of the hype from the back and forth from grand finals, but a four way crossover between several...
