Review: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: Rise of the Phoenix

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 had some lingering issues at launch, most notably a lack of key cast members (the same fate that fell upon Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite). But Team Ninja had a plan: through both free and paid DLC, that roster w...

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2019 goes to...

All heaven, no hell. That's one vague way to describe Devil May Cry 5. There are so many more possible descriptions, each one ratcheting up the peculiarity and ridiculousness in step with the level of detail given. But pulling all the way b...

That April Fools-turned-real Conan game is out in February

It's always lovely when an April Fool's joke turns into a real thing. Conan Chop Chop surprised everyone during the PC Gaming Show at E3 this year, as it looked suspiciously like a full-on joke video released earlier in 2019. Developer Func...

Review: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

For some, MechWarrior is a religion. I was first introduced to the series in the '90s from a fellow that had what I can only describe as a "battle station." His chair was rigged with joysticks on the arms. He had a force feedback vest for w...

Naraka: Bladepoint is a multiplayer ninja action game

I wouldn't have guessed it right away from the Game Awards 2019 trailer, but Naraka: Bladepoint is a multiplayer game. The footage shown at the awards ceremony struggled at times but the basic premise of launching yourself around with a ful...

You can now play Hades on Steam Early Access

A year after its Epic Games Store debut, Hades has found a ferry to Steam Early Access. It's a mythology-infused dungeon-crawler from the makers of Bastion, and if that premise isn't enough to warrant a curious click over to the Steam page,...

Review: Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders is a wild series. On one hand, you know most of the cast of those games wear Jack Skellington sweatshirts as loungewear. On the other, they also star in pretty fun action-adventure romps. You take the good, you take the bad....

The Witcher 3's Switch port started in super rough shape

It feels like a small miracle that Saber Interactive was able to port The Witcher 3 to Switch. CD Projekt's best game thus far is huge, beautifully detailed, and full of fast combat. There were some technical hiccups on PS4 and Xbox On...
