Review: Omori

Content Warning: This game, and thus the review, contains depictions and descriptions of depression, anxiety, and suicide. Having been Kickstarted in 2014, Omori seems to have gone under many people's radar, myself included. While at a...

Five games I wish everyone played in 2020

While not explicitly my "game of the year" list, what follows does actually include two of my top three games of the year. The rest? Incredible games that I genuinely think everyone should play. Games that appeal to those beyond their ...

Review: Star Wars Squadrons

I really enjoy the Star Wars universe. Not to the point where I know anything about the extended universe, but I like all the movies in their own way. Yes, even the prequels and The Last Jedi. So I'm not the expert that is going to eit...

Review: Risk of Rain 2

When I first jumped into the Early Access phase of Risk of Rain 2, I enjoyed my time but naturally wanted more. I haven't revisited it since, and have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of content the game has in its 1.0 release. A rog...

Review: Necrobarista

I can't say I'm big into the visual novel scene. I love me a good story, but it's rare that I actually play visual novels. I do thoroughly enjoy what have been deemed "walking simulators," though, so please don't think of me as someone who ...

Review: Signs of the Sojourner

Sometimes a video game comes along and is touted as the "[genre game] for people who hate [genre]." I think Signs of the Sojourner wants to be that game for deckbuilders. As someone who has been lukewarm on the genre as a whole, the id...

Review: Greedfall

I've never played a Spiders game before. People always say they're "rough around the edges" or use the term "Euro-jank" to describe them. These games tend to fulfill that B-level game that seems to be so elusive these days (outside of Japan...

Review: Blair Witch

I have a special place in my heart for the Blair Witch films. Well, the first two at least. I completely forgot there was a third from 2016 and I've never seen it. But after completing the Blair Witch game, I've done a lot of thinking ...

Review in Progress: Greedfall

You know, I've never played a Spiders game. I've been interested in a couple, like Technomancer, but never got around to actually buying or playing them. They've mostly received lukewarm reviews with plenty of uses of the word "jank." Greed...

Review: Heave Ho

If you're like me, you're always looking to add more titles to the list of "local multiplayer games to bust out when friends come over." Heave Ho has our back.

Review: Dicey Dungeons

Terry Cavanagh has created three major releases now. The first was VVVVVV and it was incredible. Then, he followed it up with Super Hexagon and guess what -- it blew everyone away. With a team helping him this time around, is it all bu...

Review: The Blackout Club

I don't think I've ever wanted to love a game more than The Blackout Club. It's just...the game feels as if it's doing its best to push me away at every moment.

Review: The Council: Episode 5: Checkmate

For those who have not been following along on the community side of things, Destructoid user Soulbow has been consistently pestering me, for over a year now, to keep writing these reviews for The Council. I mean, this episode came out...

Indie games in cars getting emotional

Do you ever want to play games where you're just....driving? Soaking in the environment, having conversations, and listening to whatever pops on the radio? Well, I've got three games lined up based on that premise on this week's episode of ...

PC Port Report: Octopath Traveler

While Octopath Traveler may not be a perfect game by any means, it was an awesome addition to the JRPG genre. As with any game, it's always a bummer to see something released on a single system – console or PC. While I under...
