Citizens of Earth review photo

Review: Citizens of Earth

The Fifth Element came on TV the other day, and it really got me thinking about mise-en-scène versus characterization. It’s one of my absolute favorite movies, and is an exemplar of sci-fi in cinema without being too derivative...

 
 
SRIV: Gat out of Hell photo

Review: Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell

There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto merged, and th...

 
 
 
Sadism in gaming photo

My name is Brittany and I'm a gaming sadist

I ventured out to the vet's office a few weeks ago with a Miniature Pinscher in tow. Sam Fisher (the same of Third Echelon fame), my beloved pup, was to see the doctor for a regular checkup and heartworm test. While waiting in the lobby, I ...

 
 
New year resolutions photo

Gaming resolutions I'll strive to keep in 2015

No one ever keeps resolutions. I tell myself every January that I'm going to stop inspecting cheese for fingerprints before putting it on a sandwich or that I'll actually start wearing something other than sweatpants and a hoodie out in pub...

 
 
 
Escape Dead Island review photo

Review: Escape Dead Island

In my years as a freelancer and staffer at various videogame outlets, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a ton of great games. In fact, this year I had the privilege of reviewing pretty much every “AAA” game that hit store...

 
 
Phoenix Wright review photo

Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

The visual novel has been ubiquitous in Japan since the early ‘90s, but in the West they've never truly caught on. Whether it was the U.S.’s love for its own home-grown adventure games like Sierra’s King’s Quest, th...

 
 
The Crew review photo

Review: The Crew

A great racer to me doesn’t focus on an abundance of customization options or entire garages of cars. It doesn’t even serve up solid multiplayer modes or an interesting soundtrack. It keeps me playing. And let me tell you, unles...

 
 
LSD remake photo

This awesome son-of-a-gun is remaking LSD: Dream Emulator

I’ve been in contact with Osamu Sato, the creator of the illustrious LSD: Dream Emulator for a tell-all about his games and legacy for a feature at VICE Motherboard for a few months now. This means I’ve been investigating this w...

 
 
GOTY Awards photo

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Game Mechanics of 2014

[Image credit: Mike Lambert] You can have the greatest narrative in the world and sprinkle memorable characters and scenes throughout a game, but all of it's for naught if your mechanics can't shine through. As the great Irving Mills once w...

 
 
Kingdom Hearts review photo

Review: Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX

The odd concept of melding a host of characters from Square Enix’s seminal Final Fantasy series, Disney’s perennial film favorites, and a cast of original personalities, seemed as though it was destined for failure. I mean, who ...

 
 
 
Persona 5 photo

Persona 5 is definitely coming in 2015, you guys

During the PlayStation Experience keynote in Las Vegas today, Atlus USA confirmed that Persona 5 will indeed be dropping on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in 2015. We pretty much knew this already, but official announcements from the ...

 
 
 
Criminal Girls photo

Criminal Girls: Invite Only up for parole in February 2015

You may remember Criminal Girls: Invite Only as the game we covered back in July two different times where it was briefly suggested the game shouldn't be localized. But that's only because I didn't write the post, because I'm all for giving...

 
 
WWE 2K15 review photo

Review: WWE 2K15

Professional wrestling was a cultural phenomenon when I was younger. In the third grade, conversations at school were a general 50/50 mix of Dragon Ball Z fact repetition and which was better: WCW or WWF. When Hulk Hogan started the nWo, sc...

 
 
Pokémon review photo

Review: Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

For a franchise that’s continually berated for remaining the same over the years, Pokémon is wildly successful, having pushed forward on its own, full speed ahead. It hasn’t needed to change much to sweep the nation with ...

Review: Hatsune Miku photo

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd

Hatsune Miku is an international sensation. Despite the fact that she's a simple digital creation, she's managed to rack up a massive amount of record sales and sold-out concerts, including a tour with Lady Gaga and even an appearance on Le...

 
 
Bon Appétit! Review photo

Review: Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit!

Some may call Senran Kagura inherently tasteless, but the series of action-packed brawlers has depth and satisfying combat. The games have swept the handheld community mainly because of their increasingly risqué content, but their be...

 
 
 
The Voice review photo

Review: The Voice: I Want You

Do you live for the thrill of belting out your favorite songs whenever you've got five minutes to yourself? Are you an amateur singer looking for guidance, or a professional looking for something fun to brush up your vocal technique? Do you...

 
 
 
Sakura Spirit photo

Review: Sakura Spirit

The visual novel genre is multifaceted. It runs the gamut from awe-inspiring and horrifying (à la personal favorite Saya no Uta) to controversial (such as the excellent Kana: Little Sister). Others still are simple vehicles for debau...
