Chibi Noctis and Lightning are so cute

Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary might be off your radar. And that's okay! Because it's slated to only arrive  in Japan later this month on PS4 and Vita, and probably won't ever see the light of day out...


Review: DropMix

When I found out that Harmonix was making a music-themed board game, I was all in. I am a gigantic fan of the Rock Band series (I bought an Xbox One specifically for Rock Band 4), and eat up as many music-heavy games that I can. After seein...


Sephiroth is putting in work in the new Fortune Street game

We only got one Fortune Street in the west on consoles in 2011 (there was also one worldwide mobile release), but Japan has been churning them out for nearly every console since 1991. Born out of a Dragon Warrior minigame, this Monopoly-esq...

Fantasy Flight publishing Fallout: The Board Game

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy. Fallout: ...


Expedition is a tabletop RPG on an NES cartridge

A few months ago, my friends and wife and I got together for a game of old school Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. I’ve played every edition to come out since, but there has always been something appealing about the more chaotic, unorga...


A Resident Evil board game would rock my world

Many years ago, I found a complete edition of The Legend of Zelda board game from the 1980s on eBay for a shockingly low price. I hesitated but a moment before I clicked “buy now” and waited in eager anticipation for it to arriv...


Deadly Premonition: The Board Game is coming this year

I asked last week if you'd be down for a Deadly Premonition board game, and it looks like plenty of fans are, even if it means going through Kickstarter first. We're headed for Greenvale! Officially unveiled this week by Rising Star Games,...


Are you ready for a Deadly Premonition board game?

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...


Necromunda is the next Warhammer 40K adaptation

I'm half writing this so I'll have something to jog my memory of the many Warhammer 40,000 video games in production, but yep, there's another adaptation in the works. This one, the turn-based tactical RPG Necromunda: Underhive Wars, is bas...


Hands-on with Armello's Usurpers Hero Pack

My initial reaction when I first fired up Armello, a digital board game produced by Melbourne-based indie studio League of Geeks, was that of wonder. Despite not being visually intensive from a technical standpoint, the art style, presentat...


Fantastic sci-fi 4x board game Eclipse is coming to PC

One of 2011's hottest board games was Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy. It blended classic space 4X gameplay with a European-style board game mechanic governing the economy. I was fortunate enough to get a copy during its initial print run,...

Part of my personal mission at Destructoid over the past several years has been to cover tabletop gaming as it relates to the predominantly video game crowd. The fruits of my efforts pale in comparison to shows like Wil Wheaton's Tabletop a...

Things video games need to learn from board games

Video games (single-player ones, at least) teach you that you are the best, you are the only one who matters, you will always get more powerful, that your hand will be held, that you don't need to actually care about other human beings. Boa...

This War of Mine board game Kickstarter surpasses its goal

The Kickstarter for a tabletop version of This War of Mine has already made its goal and then some, with 20 days left to go. Looks like people are excited for more shivering in the dark, starving for food, and hiding from soldiers. At the t...
