[Update: Today is the UK team's final day on Destructoid, so here is last week's podcast where we discuss what comes next and how special being here has been for us. Thank you very much for the last year and a bit! - Laura, Vikki and Joe] I...   read

FP: Shadow Warrior 2

Shadow Warrior 2 is about guns, swords and huge dongs

The time taken from starting my Shadow Warrior 2 demo at E3 to finding a giant metal and wood carved phallus as a mission objective titled the Demonic Rod was under three minutes. That should give you an idea of the sense of humour this par...   read

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is unbelievably gorgeous

As an intermittently-invested Shantae fan, jumping in and out of the series once every couple of years, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is undeniably the most beautiful entry in the series. From gorgeously fluid animations to the crisp clean artwo...   read

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice feels like it has already shown all its cards

It's no secret to anyone that Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on the Wii U was not well received by critics or players. From buggy execution to slow and meandering gameplay, Sonic Boom in many ways exemplified what many long time fans have feared...   read

I still hate King of Fighters XIV's 3D models, but it plays amazingly

As a long time fighting game fan who has invested heavy numbers of hours into Street Fighter and Tekken, King of Fighters is one of those series that I've always enjoyed watching at a competitive level, but always felt a little daunted to j...   read

The PS4 Neo is real, but it won't be at E3 2016

For several months now we have been hearing rumours that a new PS4 console codenamed "Neo" was in the works, adding 4K support to the system but playing the same basic set of games. The PS4 Neo is a rumor no longer.   read

Review: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Headset

The SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset is, by a wide margin, the most expensive gaming headset I have ever owned, and with that comes a set of expectations. It's hard to try out a pair of headphones retailing at over £250...   read

How Pokemon games create a positive competitive scene

This past weekend I attended the UK Pokemon Nationals in Liverpool, the first live competitive Pokemon event I have ever attended. I've played Pokemon religiously since the release of the first generation, but that has never translated in m...   read

For the last few weeks, I've had an HTC Vive set up in my living room, pulling it out when friends or family are visiting to show off the wonders of VR. While experiences like Tilt Brush or Space Pirate Trainer draw interest, Audioshield al...   read

Move or Die is fast, chaotic, and an absolute blast

When indie developers ask me what they can do to get their game noticed by press, one of the first things I tend to tell them is that they need to be able to sum it up with as few words as possible. A subject line, a tweet, or a title shoul...   read

Review: Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Wheel

As a gamer with limited experience playing driving sims, I have often underestimated the effect that a nice racing wheel can have on player experience. I'll often enjoy playing Euro Truck Simulator or Forza Horizon casually, but I'm aware I...   read

Review: Fragments of Him

Fragments of Him is one of those games that is much more impressive as a five minute convention floor demo than as a two and a half hour long finished product. It is a simple core concept with strong acting and writing that demos well in sh...   read

Mages of Mystralia balances skills through hex trees

The first time I tried to use a fireball spell in Mages of Mystralia, I had no idea why the ball of flame I created stayed where I created it. Archers were firing at me from across a chasm, and I could not fire back at them. I pulled up a m...   read

She Remembered Caterpillars is a charming bug puzzle adventure

When I first saw there was a game on the PAX East show floor called She Remembered Caterpillars, I was expecting some kind of 3D walking simulator about a young girl tending a garden. As it turns out, it's something entirely different and a...   read

Last year, when the arrival of retail VR headsets was still a pipe dream of the distant future, one of my biggest questions for the tech is how it would impact game design going forward. Would games have to fundamentally change how they are...   read

Review: Tilt Brush

I have never had any artistic ability; I am more of a wordsmith than a visual creator. Something about taking in 3D data with my eyes, processing that down to a 2D image, then getting my hands to replicate that onto a screen or sheet of pap...   read

Without a doubt, this non-gaming software has been the killer app for me during the launch of the VR revolution. Virtual Desktop (not to be confused with the identically named Windows utility) is a Steam (and Oculus Home) app that takes you...   read
