What is your favorite bit of gaming fan service?

Writing about Super Smash Bros for an article covering fan service is a bit of a cop-out. The series is literally nothing but fan service. Since Melee, every Smash game has dived deeper and deeper into the history of Nintendo, pul...

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia is finally coming west

It's been more than a year since we last heard anything on Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia and quite frankly I forget it even existed until I was notified of its impending western release. Debuting in Japan last year, Opera Omnia&n...

Sega launching new House of the Dead in Japan

In 2009, Sega released one of the best third-party games on the Nintendo Wii when House of the Dead: Overkill made its way to stores that February. It was one of two zombie killing games to hit the console that day, and while I do enjo...

David Cage can't be homophobic because Ellen Page

As a gay, there is nothing more infuriating than when critics and the press praise a straight actor for playing a gay character. Unless he is being teabagged and fisted on camera, that shit ain't brave. That's just a guy doing his job. By t...

Kirby's coolest copy ability is clearly Doctor

We are a couple days out from the launch of Kirby Battle Royale, a game that could very well be Kirby’s final appearance on the Nintendo 3DS. It's a bit sad, like an end of an era, but the wait won't be too long for the pink puff...

Here are Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2018

Looking at the history of video games there are certain years that stand out. 1997, 2010, 1994 are three of the best years ever for the medium, and now that we’ve moved into 2018, I feel confident adding 2017 to that list. It was almo...

What is one game you know will never leave your backlog?

Last week I asked what everybody's gaming resolution for 2018 was and more than few Destructoid readers responded with some idea pertaining to their backlog. A backlog is something we likely all have and as we grow older and have to adjust ...

Review: Style Savvy: Styling Star

People on the internet like to argue that Nintendo will attempt to bury some products. Releasing a game on the 3DS after the Switch is already on the market? Nintendo must be trying to bury it. Releasing a game the same week as (insert popu...

What is your 2018 gaming resolution?

So... 2017 huh? Goddamn, have the last 12 months felt like they lasted six years to anyone else? So much has happened in 2017, too much to bother talking about here, but one of the good things to come out of it for me is I kept my gaming re...

Holy frijoles 2017 had some amazing new characters

We're just a few days away from capping off 2017 and what an awesome year it has been. Well, for video games that is. From beginning to end, it's been a non-stop wallet-walloping parade of great titles from Sony, Atlus, Nintendo, Sega, Micr...

 
 
 

Just saw The Last Jedi. Final opinion: It's a bad film that eventually gets good and leaves the franchise in a much better place at the end than The Force Awakens did. Though they need to stop introducing unnecessary characters.

Let's share our favorite Christmas gaming memories

Growing up, before I got a job that gave me enough money to buy just about any game I wanted, Christmas was one of the two or three days a year I could look forward to getting a new game. My birthdays were pretty dependable on providing me ...
