Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is unbelievably gorgeous

As an intermittently-invested Shantae fan, jumping in and out of the series once every couple of years, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is undeniably the most beautiful entry in the series. From gorgeously fluid animations to the crisp clean artwo...

All day today, #PutButtsInAVideoGameTitle has been trending on Twitter. In celebration, we thought we would revisit some of our favourite video game butt reviews on the site. If you had not noticed, we here at Destructoid are big fans of vi...

Review: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Headset

The SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset is, by a wide margin, the most expensive gaming headset I have ever owned, and with that comes a set of expectations. It's hard to try out a pair of headphones retailing at over £250...

Review: Audioshield

For the last few weeks, I've had an HTC Vive set up in my living room, pulling it out when friends or family are visiting to show off the wonders of VR. While experiences like Tilt Brush or Space Pirate Trainer draw interest, Audioshield al...

Review: Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Wheel

As a gamer with limited experience playing driving sims, I have often underestimated the effect that a nice racing wheel can have on player experience. I'll often enjoy playing Euro Truck Simulator or Forza Horizon casually, but I'm aware I...

Review: Fragments of Him

Fragments of Him is one of those games that is much more impressive as a five minute convention floor demo than as a two and a half hour long finished product. It is a simple core concept with strong acting and writing that demos well in sh...

Mages of Mystralia balances skills through hex trees

The first time I tried to use a fireball spell in Mages of Mystralia, I had no idea why the ball of flame I created stayed where I created it. Archers were firing at me from across a chasm, and I could not fire back at them. I pulled up a m...

Review: Space Pirate Trainer

Last year, when the arrival of retail VR headsets was still a pipe dream of the distant future, one of my biggest questions for the tech is how it would impact game design going forward. Would games have to fundamentally change how they are...

Review: Tilt Brush

I have never had any artistic ability; I am more of a wordsmith than a visual creator. Something about taking in 3D data with my eyes, processing that down to a 2D image, then getting my hands to replicate that onto a screen or sheet of pap...

Review: Virtual Desktop VR

Without a doubt, this non-gaming software has been the killer app for me during the launch of the VR revolution. Virtual Desktop (not to be confused with the identically named Windows utility) is a Steam (and Oculus Home) app that takes you...

Review: HTC Vive

The first time I tried out the HTC Vive back at EGX 2015, I was absolutely blown away by the leap in gaming technology it presented. I spent half an hour painting in thin air, helping land aircraft safely, reeling back from stunningly high ...

Laura's gaming journey began in the 90′s when she was given a SNES by her older brother with Mario paint. From that day video games were all she thought about day or night, be it playing them, designing them, discussing them or writing about them.
