What game cancellation crushed you the most?

Game cancellations suck. In an industry that is 50% hype and 50% complaining about the hype, it's absolutely deflating when a game you were so looking forward is suddenly scrapped. Be in company infighting, too grand of a premise or simple ...   read

The top 42 indie games to watch for in 2017

I actually had to whittle this list down, can you believe it? I guess I didn't have to, since 42 is already an arbitrary choice, but I really liked the reference to Hitchhiker's Guide so I settled on 42. Plus, as I approach 50, I ...   read

Pixie's favorite gaming memories of 2016

Given I finally jumped on the 8th gen bandwagon late in October 2016, I couldn't fairly say I've played each game released in 2016 to completion. For one thing, when I get a new PlayStation console, playing the latest Metal Gear Solid game ...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2016 turn out?

One year ago, before 2016 became a hackneyed punchline ("2016? More like 2000-sucks-teen!!!" the peanut gallery offered when Johnny Depp tragically fell into an active volcano while doing the "Mannequin Challenge" on its rim), we had hope. ...   read
