Review: Dicey Dungeons

Terry Cavanagh has created three major releases now. The first was VVVVVV and it was incredible. Then, he followed it up with Super Hexagon and guess what -- it blew everyone away. With a team helping him this time around, is it all bu...

 
 
 

What are some of your favorite low poly models in gaming? Either retro or modern.

Review: The Blackout Club

I don't think I've ever wanted to love a game more than The Blackout Club. It's just...the game feels as if it's doing its best to push me away at every moment.

Review: The Council: Episode 5: Checkmate

For those who have not been following along on the community side of things, Destructoid user Soulbow has been consistently pestering me, for over a year now, to keep writing these reviews for The Council. I mean, this episode came out...

Indie games in cars getting emotional

Do you ever want to play games where you're just....driving? Soaking in the environment, having conversations, and listening to whatever pops on the radio? Well, I've got three games lined up based on that premise on this week's episode of ...

PC Port Report: Octopath Traveler

While Octopath Traveler may not be a perfect game by any means, it was an awesome addition to the JRPG genre. As with any game, it's always a bummer to see something released on a single system – console or PC. While I under...

Review: Void Bastards

Jonathan Chey, one of the brilliant minds responsible System Shock 2, is behind Void Bastards. That's a huge deal for many people, myself included. Someone with that sort of development mind created a first-person shooter roguelike? Co...

Children of Morta needs to release, like, yesterday

I had the lovely opportunity to play Children of Morta back in 2016, and holy cow I didn't realize it was that long ago. I also put it on my "Indies of 2017 to Look Forward To" list. 2017, heh. But now it's slated to release this year!...

Review: Mordhau

When I first saw Mordhau, I assumed it was the next game from the Chivalry developers. Nope! It was just a Kickstarted passion project that was inspired by the aforementioned hack and slash. Either way, it's got some great Chivalry&nbs...

Early Access Review: Risk of Rain 2

When Risk of Rain 2 was announced to be in 3D instead of 2D, I wasn't sure what to think. I loved that the developers were going in a new direction with the IP, but was worried it wouldn't quite have the same panache. I was so freaking...

Review in Progress: Generation Zero

I really didn't know much about Generation Zero going into this review. I saw one video and read Brett's preview, which was enough for me. Avalanche does not have a great track record, all things considered. The DLC for Just Cause 3&nb...

Review: Tannenberg

Verdun was a game unlike any other wartime first-person shooter. The focus on World War I in a pre-Battlefield 1 world stood out, and trench warfare inspired a focus on more tactical, patient gameplay. It was an absolute blast for...

Review: Wargroove

Wargroove is made explicitly for fans of the old Advance Wars games: the developers at Chucklefish have made no bones about it. Personally, I'm just a big fan of any turn-based strategy game, so I knew Wargroove would also be...

Missed Catherine in 2011? The PC port is perfect for ewe

It's been a while since Catherine came out, about eight years actually, yet it's never escaped my mind. I loved playing through the game in 2011 and its block-moving puzzles paired with the Persona-esque flair left a huge impact o...

Review: Just Cause 4

I went into Just Cause 4 with tempered expectations. I enjoyed Just Cause 3 given how big a jump it was from the second installment, but the post-release DLC absolutely drained me. The gameplay was already feel...

Review: Artifact

Okay, let’s get some things out of the way real quick regarding monetization: Is Artifact free? No, it costs $20 and there is no free alternative. What do I get for buying it? Two complete decks, ten booster packs, a...

Review: Parkitect

Back when I reviewed Planet Coaster, I brought up that Parkitect was just starting to take shape. Well, about two years later, that shape is solidified and the game has left Early Access. I've been following the game pretty closely, re...

I absolutely loved 28 Days Later, but I definitely aint a fan of 28 Weeks I love how intense and harrowing its chaos can be, but I definitely hate HOW it got to that chaos; complete and utter stupidity and more plot holes than a Swiss
