Review: Lethal League

At first, I loved Lethal League. It has plenty of style, it has a fun central mechanic, and it filled my need for a chaotic yet accessible fighter to bust out at parties – now that I no longer have access to Smash Bros. But as I made ...   read

The Chinese-Western video game exchange sounds difficult

This week at the Los Angeles Games Conference, experts on the Chinese video game industry spoke to a room of games professionals (and me) about how to find success overseas. "Maybe this panel should be called How to Lose Less in China," sai...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Thicker than Water

[This review contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season One and Tales from the Borderlands.] When I said A New Frontier was shaping up to be the most consistently good Telltale game since the first season of The Walking Dead, some t...   read

 
 
 

PETA sent us an email whining about Nintendo toys at McDonalds, so I put this image together for a post before realizing I had better things to do with my time.

Review: Danganronpa 1.2 Reload

Even if you don’t like visual novels, I think you should give the Danganronpa games a look. If that’s the answer you came here looking for, and you want to go into the series completely unspoiled, you have my blessing to grab ...   read

From our community  

We need your suggestions for the first-ever Destructoid Wrestling Tournament

Good news, Destructoid community: it's WrestleMania week! For the uninitiated, WrestleMania is basically the season finale of wrestling. It's the biggest WWE show of the year, where the company (ostensibly) brings long-gestating storylines ...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Above the Law

As a multi-media franchise, The Walking Dead is at its best when the overarching tale of survival against the undead and/or the murderous community de jour is working in conjunction with smaller, compelling stories of regular people in...   read

Double Fine-published GNOG is tactile, satisfying, indie as hell

When I first saw GNOG at IndieCade a few years back, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. The game reminded me of those Fidget Cubes people seem to like so much -- more of an oddity to poke at than a traditional "game." And that's f...   read

Review: Ghost Recon Wildlands

[Spoilers for the ending of Ghost Recon Wildlands, because it's so bad that I have to talk about it.] I take back every nice thing I ever wrote about this game. Yes, Thomas Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (an Ubisoft Game) certainl...   read

Ape Out will put a smile on your face in these dark times

When I say that Ape Out is a fun little game, I'm not being insulting. The first couple months of 2017 have smothered players with boundless open world games like Nier: Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Ghost Recon ...   read

Cliff Bleszinski almost turned Gears 3 into Battlestar Galactica

[Spoilers for the end of the 2004 television series Battlestar Galactica, I guess.] Cliff Bleszinski is one of the strongest arguments for the "game developer" to "rock star" comparison. He's one of the minds behind Jazz Jackrabbit, Un...   read

Review in Progress: Ghost Recon Wildlands

It was hard to imagine what Ghost Recon Wildlands would be in a post-Sicario world. Denis Villeneuve's taut crime thriller portrayed a world of drugs and murder where there were no easy answers and no good guys; the kind of m...   read

The mood at the Nintendo Switch midnight launch: cautiously optimistic and a little confused

There's really nothing like a console midnight launch. Even the worst-case scenario is a bloodbath where everyone is looking out for themselves. It's not every day you get to experience a real-life low-stakes version of Lord of the Flies! T...   read

On the cusp of Nintendo's uncertain future, I played video games in the desert with John Cena

It's about 9:30 AM on a Thursday, it's an unheard-of-for-Los-Angeles 55 degrees out made worse by intense winds, and I'm ready to see the Nintendo Switch for the second time, days before the console launches. The Switch is ostensibly the re...   read

Five video games or whatever to play on Valentine's Day that might help you stop being so bitter about Valentine's Day for like five minutes

Here is my solemn promise to you: I will not write an article about how much it sucks to be single on Valentine's Day. I am, so I know firsthand that it does. I also know that nobody likes to be reminded of how lonely they are, but (anecdot...   read

Monster Hunter clone Dauntless seems perfect for players on a budget

For me, there's an important distinction between "budget-friendly" and "a budget game." The former may be a little sanded down or rough around the edges, but is an otherwise solid experience that can be had for a low price (or no price at a...   read

Monster Boy is a medium-sized glass of room temperature tap water

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a "spiritual successor" to the Wonder Boy franchise. It's a cute platformer where you can switch between animal transformations as the situation demands. You can butt-stomp enemies. It's set f...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read

MetaArcade showed me a choose your own adventure creator, and I ruined it

Minit is a charming indie version of Majora's Mask
