Bloggers Wanted: Fake it until you make it

This month's bloggers wanted prompt is something we stole. You see, by stealing this idea, you have no idea how truly inept I actually am. By pretending to know what I'm doing, I have clearly used my ill-gotten status to meet such big-time ...

Where do you draw the line between exploit and tech?

While reading SRK earlier this week I found out somebody pocketed $10,000 in winnings at a For Honor tournament celebrating the mark of season 3. But it wasn't a story of blood, sweat, and tears like some rise to the top at EVO. Jakub ...

What does the community think of death in video games?

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was not at all on my radar when it released a couple weeks ago. But it suddenly exploded in my feed when people talked about how dying works in the game and the fail states associated with it. After a few days o...

Do you watch video games?

I subscribe to the school of thought that normal on-air television is something I don't want to pay money for. After the game changed thanks to Netflix, I cut the cable and made the majority of my television time exclusively streaming. But ...

What does the community think of Splatoon 2?

Splatoon, to me, was a big hit for Nintendo Wii U. A fresh new idea during a time when the most common complaint leveled against the company was the reusing of old IPs and re-releasing the same sequels over and over. So it's no surpris...

Who are you hoping gets into BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle?

I think it's safe to say that nobody was expecting a game like BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle to be announced. Not just BlazBlue, riding off the wave of the hype from the back and forth from grand finals, but a four way crossover between several...

What does the community think of ARMS?

To me, ARMS looks like a game born out of the philosophy that gave birth to the breakout hit that was Splatoon. It is a game with a sharp visual design that doesn't skimp on color. It's also a game with a simple conceit that has a hidden po...

Have you jumped ship from Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite?

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite had a cloud of uncertainty going into E3 and one of the factors was rumor of its complete character roster at launch. One of the best words used to describe it was flaccid. The roster wasn't outright bad, but it ...

Here's how the Destructoid community graded E3

So for the second year in a row, local fish turned cyborg private investigator Blondbass turned everyone onto the idea of crafting report cards for E3. Unlike last year's round up, this year we're here to share our complete E3 thoughts, fro...

What does the community think of Tekken 7?

Ah, Tekken. A stalwart fighting game franchise that takes a licking and keeps on ticking. A mysterious game that's simultaneously serious and goofy at the same time. This is a melodramatic game that follows the story of a family line t...

How do you feel about a whole year of Overwatch?

We're all knee deep in Overwatch anniversary loot box shenanigans now. I've only received one anniversary skin, and Zarya's Cyberian skin isn't really the greatest (why is the texture on the mask so bad?). But leaving aside the question of ...

How has Injustice 2 been for you so far?

It feels like Injustice 2 has a bit of a thing going against it. Gamers aren't too keen on aggressive DLC strategies. Not to mention NetherRealm Studios always makes a complete edition re-release a year or two later. It has been guaranteed ...

How is the community's Persona 5 social life?

I hope you've spent these past three weeks pouring your heart and soul into Persona 5, because the time has come. I've been teasing the end of this website for a while now, talking about how the fibers of civilization that hold this communi...

Bloggers Wanted: Crowdfunded

It feels like it's been a decade since we've seen the rise of the crowdfunded game. I'm always surprised when I remind myself that crowdfunding has been a thing long before the first crowdfunded video game, but nowadays a crowdfunded gam...

What was the first thing you did in Breath of the Wild?

The thing I like to take away from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is all the different emergent stories. Everyone has their own experience with certain elements in the game, whether it's how you approach combat, travel across the l...

Bloggers Wanted: Let's Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themsel...

What does the community think of Nioh?

Nioh is shaping up to be my first big purchase for 2017. Even though I didn't play the first alpha demo, getting to try the last-chance demo shot me from no interest to pre-order in an instant. It was also interesting to me that I could nev...

Strider's favorite games of 2016, if they were Stands

Here we are! My absolute favorite time of year for video games. We get to reflect back and say to ourselves, "Yes, these are the games I loved the most, let's go." It feels like it was only recently that I enjoyed thinking back on my time f...
