A Resident Evil board game would rock my world

Many years ago, I found a complete edition of The Legend of Zelda board game from the 1980s on eBay for a shockingly low price. I hesitated but a moment before I clicked “buy now” and waited in eager anticipation for it to arriv...   read

Did You Know Gaming wants to yell some facts about Tingle at you

One of the strangest games I own is this little gem for the DS called Tingle's Freshly Picked Rosy Rupeeland. Never released in the North America but playable on my DSi XL due to Nintendo not implementing region lock, it is an absolutely we...   read

Review: Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop

I still remember the day I bought Cooking Mama for the Nintendo DS. It was a hot September afternoon in the Bay Area. My best friend at the time and I visited the Best Buy in Sausalito and each purchased a copy. Giggling like the schoolgirl...   read

Mighty Gunvolt Burst looks streets ahead of the original

When Azure Striker Gunvolt first hit the 3DS, I picked it up right away. Not because I was zealous to play it, but rather I wanted to get my hands on the included freebie Mighty Gunvolt right away. Looking like a side-project Inti Creates s...   read

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is coming to the Switch

Review: Deemo: The Last Recital

A few weeks ago, a very smart man wrote a very stupid article arguing games should move past the idea they are a vehicle for storytelling that could rival film, television, and literature. I wish not to start that debate again other than to...   read

With just a few Injustice 2 DLC character slots left, one of them better be Sandman

On Monday, the day every week I unleash these questions on the Destructoid staff, I posited there was no way Ed Boon and Netherrealm would reveal all the DLC characters for Injustice 2. “Surely,” I told myself “surely they...   read

Review: Die With Glory

When it was recently reported that Nintendo made more money off Fire Emblem Heroes than it did Super Mario Run, it disappointed me. Not because of how it will possibly affect its future mobile endeavors but because of the message it could s...   read

Portal 2 is hands down the greatest sequel ever made

The games industry, like the movie industry and apparently the television industry, is one that thrives on sequels. Just look at the list of upcoming games for 2017. You can barely swing a cat without hitting some follow-up. Some of these g...   read

Call of Duty: WWII's campaign is all about the bros, but in multiplayer you can make it ladies' night

Female playable characters in Call of Duty games have become the norm. As more women enter into combat roles in the armed services, it only makes sense that games taking place in the near and distant future would include them. It's how thin...   read

Office Space: Idle Profits is a waste of a great IP

I should have known. I should have seen the title Office Space: Idle Profits and figured it would be another goddamn clicker game. I should have been able to look past the Fallout Shelter-esque art direction and seen this is worth neither m...   read

Somebody please delete Nonstop Chuck Norris from my phone

Nonstop Chuck Norris is not a game you should download. It’s really not a game I should be writing about. In my quest to tell people about good mobile titles they should try, it’s the type of game I would play for five minutes b...   read

Review: Urban Trial Freestyle 2

Do not adjust your computer or phone screen. The game you are looking at is from 2017 and not, as its outward appearance would indicate, from 1998. Urban Trial Freestyle 2 not only has the graphic fidelity of a game from 20 years ago, but i...   read
