Review: Mario Tennis Aces

One of the reasons the Nintendo GameCube is my absolute favorite home console to date is that was when Mario sports titles absolutely exploded. The N64 brought us Mario Tennis and Golf, but it was on the next system where we ...

Which Overwatch hero should get their own stand-alone game?

This would have been a good weekly Destructoid Discusses topic three weeks ago. Three weeks ago, we were in the throes of the Overwatch second anniversary celebration. Three weeks ago, I was sitting squarely at level 10. Today, I'm lev...

Nintendo and Xbox are totally BFFs now thanks to Minecraft

When Microsoft bought Minecraft nearly four years ago, it thought it was just going to get the rights to the best-selling game of the decade. Turns out, it got so much more than that. It got a new best friend. After months of casually talki...

Mutant Year Zero kicked my ass at E3

“This game will not go easy on you.” That was my warning moments before starting up the E3 demo for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. When Brett booked this appointment for me, my mind read it as Mutant Football League so, g...

Resident Evil 2 nearly made me s#!t my pants

Capcom has a tight set-up in the South Hall of E3. The entrance to its demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake is a miniature recreation of the Raccoon City police station, redesigned as a short haunted house to provide a brief bit of...

Mega Man 11 proves Capcom still has a knack for the series

Unlike most of the other games I'll play at E3, a single level of Mega Man 11 is actually enough to give a comprehensive look at the quality of the final product. There are two available for my session -- Block Man and Fuse Man -- and ...

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is Star Fox evolved

When Starlink: Battle for Atlas was announced at E3 2017, I immediately wrote it off. Here was a new toys-to-life product in a time when other franchises in that niche were starting to die off. In 2017 it seemed like an antiquated conc...

Dragon Quest XI seems well worth the wait

E3 is a rather lousy place to play Dragon Quest XI for the first time. Sessions are limited to just 15 minutes, and with two small maps to explore with a bevy of points of interest, a single session isn't even a proper amount of t...

My hands are too big for the Poke Ball Plus

Curiosity gets the best of me the moment I'm given the Poké Ball Plus controller for my hands-on session with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! The controller is small, roughly twice the size of a ping-pong ball, but holds well...

The spirit of Wii is alive and well in Hyper Sports R

I may be in the minority on this one, but I absolutely loved motion controls on the Wii. Especially with games like Wii Sports Bowling, Skyward Sword, We Ski & Snowboard, waving around the Wiimote -- or more realistically, wiggling it r...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches December 7, 2018
