Dragon Quest Builders coming to Switch next spring

Celeste is the next pure platformer to keep an eye on

Platforming has been around for so long, it's ingrained in us as a basic skill. It's like walking or breathing. We just do it. It's such a basic skill, many games these days use it as the vehicle to get to where they really want to go. Puzz...

Destiny 2's first month of events mapped out

One of Destiny's strengths is its ability to highlight and modify certain activities so playing the same content for the umpteenth time isn't quite as stale as one might expect. Destiny 2 is looking no different in that regard, and Bungie h...

Shots Fired, for the app-loving modern sniper assassin

The one-sentence description given upon sitting down at Shots Fired is a weird one. According to the representative at its PAX booth, it's a "visual novel time management assassination simulation." I had to write that one down to make sure ...

Destructoid is gearing up for PAX West

Look, it's late (as I write this the night before it publishes), I still need to pack for PAX, and thus, I have no idea what's in this episode of Podtoid. The title was taken from the first soundbite I randomly checked. It's a grab bag! I'l...

Would hip teens think Sonic Mania is good?

So Sonic Mania is out and it's sounding like it's actually pretty dang good. But is it only good if you loved Sonic back in the '90s, or would somebody without that nostalgia still think it's great? That was one of the topics on this episod...

Fantasy Flight publishing Fallout: The Board Game

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy. Fallout: ...

Review: Turtle Beach Recon 150

Y'all like to hate on Destiny, but it has given me something no other game has: a weekly ritual of six-player cooperative first-person shooter raids that require not only skill and focus, but more importantly communication and coordina...

Handstanding on everything in The Farm in Destiny 2

Bungie opened up The Farm, Destiny 2's social space taking place of The Tower, for just one hour this afternoon. It was a good time to become familiar with the new environment, hang out with friends, and play some really janky soccer. Or if...

Who would be video games' press secretary?

It has been a slow week for video games, so this episode of Podtoid is mostly just the crew talking about whatever come to mind. One topic was who the press secretary for video games would be. Our guess is Dorito Pope himself Geoff Keighley...
