Fate/Grand Order saves America in its latest episode

Fate/Grand Order continues to trundle along, feeding the cash of whales and the salty tears of unlucky would-be Masters slaving away in the gacha mines. That said, now it does have something for people who want more to do than farm evi...

Review: Bravo Team

Whatever else virtual reality has become in the years since its commercial debut, it's beyond dispute that it has become, in large measure, the new home of the lightgun genre. For every creative, even transcendent VR experience, there are h...

Review: Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match

Truth be told, Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match isn't the game I wanted out of something based on one of my favorite anime series.  That game would be the ideal ambassador for the joy of Girls und Panzer, bringing its unique ble...

Review: Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet

Before we begin, a bit of background: In preparation to write this review of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, I went over the other SAO game reviews I've written for Destructoid, and it turns out, a common thread runs through all of them: Th...

Now you too can replicate your own Star Trek Online ships

One of the coolest things about Star Trek Online, if not the coolest thing, is the sheer amount of officially licensed and original starships there are on-offer in-game. Eight-plus years of operation have given the game's players hundr...

Review: Break Arts II

What's cooler than the ability to pilot your very own mecha? That's easy: The ability to build your very own mecha (as well as pilot it).  Break Arts II, from indie Japanese studio MercuryStudio, takes that hook and runs it in an ...

Humble is selling a Colossal Pile of Attack on Titan manga

I wouldn't call myself the biggest fan of Hajime Isayama's megahit manga Attack on Titan. That's because I've never actually read it, and only seen Studio Wit's anime series adaptation, which I found great-looking but way too shouty. Thankf...

Fate/Grand Order celebrates ensnaring 2 million innocents

Fate/Grand Order might be one of the crueler varieties of mobile gacha game, but that hasn't stopped it from achieving some measure of popularity, if the game's latest announcement is to be believed. The FGO website has announced ...

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

Fate/Grand Order Arcade's fights actually look good for once

I can forgive Fate/Grand Order for not looking completely amazing. I mean, it's meant to be a mobile gambling hellscape, not a triple-A graphical showcase, right? And some of the flashier moments look alright, even, in that 2.5D JRPG s...

Rejoice, fans of faintly furry fantasy fun, because Utawarerumono is back. Again. Three years after releasing two sequels to a fifteen-year-old game, Aquaplus has gone back to the well to remake that same game. The original Utawarerumo...
