Review: Payday 2: The Big Score

About two years ago, I fell in with a bad crowd. A gang of thieves that would conspire together to rip innocent people off and goad each other into more and more brazen and dangerous crimes. It was a great time. At our peak, we were working...   read

For Honor has the makings of a winner

Games have always struggled to make multiplayer sword fighting fun. It should be the simplest thing in the world, I mean, what is more video game than lopping off someone's head with a broadsword? But, it’s trickier to pull off in pra...   read

Review: Event[0]

The mad A.I. is a classic sci-fi trope. WOPR, poised to start a nuclear war because it doesn’t understand the difference between what's real and what’s just a game. H.A.R.D.A.C. replacing the citizens of Gotham and cloning Batma...   read

Review: Strike Vector EX

Strike Vector was always a game I meant to check out on the PC. I heard good things about it when it was released back in 2014, and I’ve always had a soft spot for aerial shooters. But somehow I never quite got around to pulling the t...   read

Review: Fallout 4: Nuka-World

We’ve mused before at Destructoid that Fallout 4 has had one of the worst season passes worth of DLC in recent memory. With a lineup of filler Workshop DLC that mostly focused on the settlement aspect of the game, and the ambitious bu...   read

Permadeath in Fallout 4's Survival mode broke me

I've played a lot of Fallout 4. Too much if I'm being honest. Like a ratty old sweater, it's kind of comfortable in its familiarity, even if I know I should really just toss it out. But, for all the hours I've played, the multiple character...   read

Review: CASE: Animatronics

I went into CASE: Animatronics with an open mind. Yes, as a Steam Greenlight game featuring evil animatronics, there was some obvious cause for trepidation. That it would turn out to be a shameless copy cat, a thin experience riding another...   read

Review: Hawken

Hawken is a game I keep checking back in on. When it originally released back in 2012, it seemed ahead of its time, a free-to-play shooter with AAA production values featuring mech combat. For someone who is both cheap and a mech fan, it wa...   read

Want to watch a 19-minute infomercial for Videoball?

Videoball came out yesterday. I love it. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Videoball creator and head of Action Button Entertainment, Tim Rogers, loves it too. He's so taken with it in fact, that he and a few friends recorded a nearly 19-minute-long ...   read

Review: Videoball

Normally in a review, I wouldn't want to get too bogged down with discussing minute mechanics like the nitty gritty of what a certain button does, or how one type of attack differs from another. I'd want to concentrate on the bigger picture...   read

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls
