So long Crossy Road, hello Westy West

As I said I would do in my gaming resolution, I’ve been spending a lot of time recently with mobile games, looking for those fun experiences I think should be shared with people who are actually looking for games to play on their phon...   read

Atlus' two new games have a name I can't pronounce

I've recently done the math and figured out that I'll be commuting to and from work for three hours a day. Including work and my lunch, that's approximately 12 hours a day that will be spent going to work, working, and coming home from work...   read

Randy Pitchford found porn on the internet

For those who are unaware, there is a thing on the internet called pornography. I’ve been told it’s quite salacious and pretty popular, making up roughly 99.9999475% of all Google searches. People say in these pornographic motio...   read

 
 
 

I'd be more upset about the Switch launch line-up if I didn't have a years worth of Wii U games in my backlog I could be playing

The makers of Poncho have some words of wisdom for indie developers

Poncho, the cute little indie puzzle platformer, has been out for well over a year. Did you play it? I didn’t, and apparently, I’m not alone in that. Despite being released on Steam, the PS4 and Wii U, the game was not successfu...   read

CJ names games from 2016 that he made dicks in

It’s the beginning of a new year. For millions around the world, that means creating resolutions they will in no ways keep, costing them potentially thousands of dollars in exercise equipment, diet foods and gym memberships. For games...   read

Here are Destructoid's gaming resolutions for 2017

Here we are, on the verge of a new year (unless you live somewhere in the world where the calendar has already turned over, in which case Happy New Year!!!) As is the custom, the beginning of a new year beckons us to make resolutions so as ...   read

Earth Defense Force on mobile has me tapping out

There's a slight burn right now in my flexor pollicis longus. This muscle is unique to humans. It's the one that controls our opposable thumbs, and for the last five days, I've been giving it a workout with Tap Wars: Earth Defense Force 4.1...   read

Review: Super Mario Run

Two years ago, if you had told me Nintendo was making a Mario runner for mobile, I would have laughed directly into your face. Not just any laugh, but a big, boisterous laugh usually reserved for moments of schadenfreude and Tyler Perry mov...   read

Tracer's lesbianism turns my Overwatch fan fiction into reality

It's the holidays, a time for family, friends, presents, Santa, credit card debt, arguing when people say something other than "Merry Christmas" to you for some goddamn reason, and for being with the ones you love. For me, that means being ...   read

Opoona is a baller, shot-caller in Musou Stars

One of my favorite things about the Nintendo Wii was all the weird games it got. Stuff like Elebits, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, The Dog Island, and Opoona. Opoona was especially odd in that its big gimmick was you could play the ent...   read

Activision is letting you play Infinite Warfare for free

If you didn't buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare yet, I understand. Not only did it come out shortly after the arguably superior Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, but it came out in the same year as Doom and Overwatch, two outstanding and obvi...   read

Citalis, which was once too hard, is now too easy

I first started playing Citalis, now available on Steam, last month after the developer sent us an email about its then-impending release. With its clean lines, and simple-yet-elegant art, I was immediately drawn to it and requested a revie...   read

Review: Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure

There’s something admirable about a single person creating a work of art. Be it a film, a song, a piece of animation, or a video game, you have to respect the vision and work ethic of these individuals who do by themselves what teams ...   read

Review: The Pokemon Cookbook

If 2013 was the Year of Luigi, 2016 has to be the Year of Pokémon. From that kick-ass Super Bowl commercial last February to the release of Pokkén Tournament and through the record-breaking launches of Pokémon Go&n...   read

If I had Bloxels as a kid, I'd have grown up to be a game developer

Long ago, back when I was just a timid and naive elementary school student, my best friend and I used to pass the time in class designing levels. We both loved video games growing up. He introduced me to Final Fantasy and a few years before...   read

Musou Stars trailer features musou and stars

With the DLC for Hyrule Warriors finally complete, I now look forward to finding and becoming completely engrossed by my next musou obsession. Dragon Quest Heroes didn't quite tickle my fancy the way I thought it would, but if thi...   read

Transformers: Forged to Fight is 30 years in the making

When I first saw the trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Forged to Fight I thought it looked kind of bad-ass. When I got the end and saw that it was for mobile, I still thought it looked kind of bad-ass, but would rather have a stra...   read

You don't have to speak Japanese to appreciate this Miitopia trailer

When I was younger and played through the SNES Final Fantasy games, I would always change the name of characters when I could to fulfill my childhood fantasy going on a grand quest with my heroes, like Phil from Rugrats, Bill Nye from ...   read

With this Dragon Quest VIII story trailer, I can see why the game is so beloved

When it comes to the Dragon Quest franchise, my favorite RPG series, I'm a Johnny-come-lately. I didn't get into it until the DS era when I picked up and subsequently fell head over heels for Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime...   read

Review: Harvest Moon: Skytree Village

It’s weird to think how competitive the farm sim genre has become. You have Stardew Valley, which may be the best farm sim ever created, Story of Seasons continues to impress, Rune Factory is outstanding, and there's Farming Simu...   read

New Compile Heart games coming west in 2017

With last month's release of Super Dimension Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls, the calendar of upcoming titles from developer Compile Heart was looking a bit barren. In fact, nothing had been announced for western shores past that game. Well, las...   read

Review: Disney Magical World 2

For the last three weeks I've been on a deep dive with Disney Magical World 2 for the Nintendo 3DS. I've been dressing up in frilly outfits, interacting with cartoonish renditions of popular Disney characters, and running the world's m...   read
