My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...   read

Raise your hand if you don't know what Mr. Whippy is

Last episode we talked with Alex Rose about British slang (and his video game, I guess), and we're not letting up this week with a new term we learned from Destructoid alumnus Fraser Brown. What the heck is Mr. Whippy and why don't American...   read

Review: Mages of Mystralia

Magic is often taken for granted in games. It's just a skill you learn, to be called upon by a button press or a menu option later. Earn a new spell, equip it, then use it immediately for its effects without really thinking about how it was...   read

Battleborn: a great game with a fatal flaw

One year ago today, Battleborn released to the world. And sure, we have fun with Randy Pitchford's ridiculous tweet about it, but the game holds a secret not many know: actually, it is very good. It could have been popular. Heck, I think it...   read

How are you liking Persona 5 so far?

It seems like people are really digging Persona 5, or at least people not named Brett Makedonski. At least, that's what I gather from listening to this latest episode of Podtoid. Steven and Ray are into it. Whatever floats their boats, I gu...   read

This new Mario board game looks-a bad

There have been a lot of video games turned board games recently, and some (XCOM, This War of Mine) have turned out okay. But when I first saw Super Mario: Level Up!, I could only shake my head in disappointment. Granted, I haven't read the...   read

Are you buying the new Xbox One?

This is Podtoid 365, which means if you had the entire back catalog, you could listen to one episode every day for an entire year. We didn't do anything special for that, but that won't stop me from pointing out the next arbitrary milestone...   read

Brett chose to save Space Hitler

Brett had the choice to save Space Hitler or to liberate sci-fi Auschwitz. He went with the former. In his defense, he only had a few seconds to make the decision, so you can understand why it might have been tough. That's one of the topics...   read

A recap from GDC and PAX East

Ooh, this episode is a little late. See, I was on vacation, and the ol' crew decided to up and record an episode without even telling me. You know what that means? No Hot Dish! Even so, it's worth listening to, probably. I listened to parts...   read

Review: Glittermitten Grove

You may think you don't want a game about building huts in trees to house fairies while they collect sunlight and shoot off fireworks. You may be wrong. Developing a functioning fairy society might be exactly what you want.   read

Will The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild be judged fairly when it releases?

One of the best portions of this episode of Podtoid was a discussion on how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be received by critics, and especially in comparison to a new intellectual property like Horizon: Zero Dawn. It was spa...   read

FTL team reveals new strategy kaiju game Into the Breach

It feels like it's been forever since we last heard from Subset Games (or as you may know the studio, "those people who made FTL: Faster Than Light.") FTL Advanced Edition came out in 2014, and since then I just assumed Subset's employees t...   read

Super Mario Odyssey takes Mario to some weirdly mundane places

Mario has been to such strange and fantastic places over his lifetime, it's ironically strange to see him hopping around a regular-ass city. At the very least, his hopping is augmented by his new physics-defying hat. He can throw it and jum...   read

With a console that can be taken on the go (or a handheld that can be set up on a TV), battery life is going to be an important consideration. In today's Switch presentation, Nintendo reported its battery life to run anywhere between 2.5 an...   read

January 19 is a big day for Battleborn

I'll admit: I've slowed down on Battleborn lately. I still think it's a great game that got a raw deal, but after 200 hours and a Platinum Trophy, I was ready to take a break. It was in my New Year's resolution to play more short games...   read

Review: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Thinking about stealth, a common image the mind conjures is that of a lone wolf slinking through the shadows and taking out threats one by one. Solid Snake and Sam Fisher generally work alone. Players control one man using skill and cunning...   read
