Put on your skepticals, E3 season is upon us

Everyone's favorite yearly blowout is here once again! A time of hype and disappointment, E3 never ceases to surprise me in at least one way. Last year was the reveal of Monster Hunter: World. That threw me off my seat when that was announc...

What have you loved most about God of War so far? (Spoilers)

While there were plenty of people initially skeptical of its tonal shift, there's no denying that God of War has really taken off. Although quite a few members of the community had said they had no interest, the Quick Posts on Destructoid a...

Is World your first Monster Hunter game?

If Monster Hunter: World is your first Monster Hunter game, you may have occasionally seen this question floating around: what was your first Monster Hunter game and what weapon did you start with? It's interesting. While I haven't seen thi...

Do you have friends who got you into certain video games?

A week before Monster Hunter: World launches, I look back on my time with the series. The demo for 4U was amazing, to be sure, but what's Monster Hunter without camaraderie? The hooks were in, but they wouldn't be in deep and barbed if it w...

What did you get out of the Nintendo Direct Mini?

Whole continents of gamers, expecting a possible Nintendo Direct this week, woke up to the news that one had already happened without them. I myself stumbled across the reveal just as I was logging off for lunch, leading to hastily-typed an...

What does the community think of Super Mario Odyssey?

For me personally, there are two big marquee games that defined the Nintendo Switch's explosive entrance onto the scene this year. First was a right-straight with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, followed by an uppercut later with S...

What are the community's favorite horror settings?

It's been almost a whole year since I purchased Bloodborne, got slaughtered in Central Yharnam, and put the game down. But ever since October started, I managed to push through my previous failures and finally experience Yharnam in all its ...

Traveller in Playtime: Haunting Ground

[Halloween is the perfect time to go back and play some hidden horror gems from days past - which is exactly what Kerrik52 does in his Haunting Grounds retrospective! I'm a sucker for PS2-era horror games, so hopefully this tickles your fan...

What are some of your favorite game visuals?

In my circle of friends, I can't stop singing the praises of Cuphead. Asides from its rewarding challenge of overcoming some splendidly designed boss encounters, its distinct 1930s cartoon aesthetic is unique and hard to compare to anything...

My favorite places in video games

[For some folks, playing a game means more than taking in the gameplay or the characters. For people like JPF720, the scenery can be just as big a part of the experience as actually playing. Join him as he revisits some of his favorite plac...

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...

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...

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 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...

A new generation, a new entry in Pokémon. Whether you like the new Pokémon or have jumped off the ship clear into Digimon town, a new game means new choices for favorite 'Mon. And considering the incredible success of Sun and ...

What does the community think of the Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo has finally revealed its next console, the Nintendo Switch. I, for one, am glad we can stop calling it the damn NX. In the days leading up to the reveal, almost everyone was skeptical that Nintendo would be showing off anything wor...

Community poll: What did you think of the PS4 reveal?

[Update: Poll closed! Thanks to everyone who voted!] Now that the dust has settled from the big reveal event and the PlayStation 4 news has slowed to a manageable trot, we thought it might be fun to let you in the Dtoid community share your...
