Shazam! has me excited about DC movies again

It's no secret the output of the DC Extended Universe has been less than exemplary. Yes, the movies have all made money, but only Wonder Woman has established itself as a box-office, fan, and critical darling. After the disaster that was Ju...

Two Point Hospital is full of puns, patients, and pedigree

Hospitals have always been a major part of my life. I was born with a rare skin disease that goes by many names but the one I've most heard it referred to as is Giant Congenital Nevus. In layman's terms, the disease is an over pigmentation ...

What if your real-life career was a JRPG job?

On Friday, the highly anticipated Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch finally launched, capping off what has been a long and exhaustive road from reveal to release. The game has a lot going for it, much of which ties it to the JRPGs of ou...

Review: All-Star Fruit Racing

I'm baffled right now. Absolutely baffled. Befuddled even. Nonplus. The karting genre is a gaming no-brainer. It's one of the linchpins of the industry, corralling casual and hardcore gamers alike. It's been that way since the early 1990s, ...

Review: Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble’s arrival on Switch comes at an awkward time. We initially found out about the port last year and it was expected to launch in the first few months of the system. That didn’t happen, obviously, and in its absence, ...

Cygames has conquered mobile: Now it's coming for consoles

Cygames had a rather unassuming booth at this year's E3. Actually, "booth" would be the wrong word to describe it. It was a cubicle, hidden in plain sight with the other cubicles that filled the concourse of the Los Angeles Convention Cente...

What rides would you put in a Sega theme park?

When the weather is balls-sticking-to-the-side-of-your-leg hot, it can only mean one thing: summer is here. That means trips to the beach, AC running all day and night, the best summer blockbusters, and trips to the many theme parks around ...

Tencent isn't screwing around with Arena of Valor on Switch

Arena of Valor probably isn't the first game you think of when asked to name a MOBA. It only launched in North America back in December and most attention we've paid to it has been with its addition of characters from the DC Universe t...

Solid Snake, Naked Snake, and Raiden join Super Bomberman R

I bought Super Bomberman R before I bought my Switch. Silly, I know, but I was so sure it was going to bomb and that its first printing would be its last. I was playing the long game in hopes of making a cheap buck on eBay. It serves m...

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 ...

Booby dungeon crawler Omega Labyrinth Z rejected by Sony

Earlier this year, we learned sexy-anime-girl-dungeon-crawler and horribly named Omega Labyrinth Z would not be seeing release in Australia due to its content. The game features high school girls with big boobs you can play around with usin...

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...
