A quick guide to the Fire Emblem series

What game do you most regret selling or trading in?

I have a troubled history with collecting games. Growing up, I lived in one console household until both my brother and I were in high school. So when we got our NES, that is all we had. When it came time to move up to the SNES, we sold our...

Destructoid is gearing up for PAX West

Look, it's late (as I write this the night before it publishes), I still need to pack for PAX, and thus, I have no idea what's in this episode of Podtoid. The title was taken from the first soundbite I randomly checked. It's a grab bag! I'l...

Breath of the Wild's Prince Sidon deserves his own game

Are you tired of hearing about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Well too fucking bad because I ain’t ready to stop talking about it. It’s easily one of my top 50 games of the year and even though I’ve completed the...

Would hip teens think Sonic Mania is good?

So Sonic Mania is out and it's sounding like it's actually pretty dang good. But is it only good if you loved Sonic back in the '90s, or would somebody without that nostalgia still think it's great? That was one of the topics on this episod...

PUBG's first-person mode can be creepy at times

And I don't just mean the Assassin's Creed-esque face! Brett and I partnered up for a few rounds of first-person mode, and the end result felt like a mix between a walking sim as we combed over houses and survival horror as the weather took...

Daddy Yankee would be a PUBG god

Three's company, but four's a squad in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. At least that's how it typically goes when the D-Team gets together. This time around, Steven "Lipovka Lover" Hansen ditched Brett, Jordan, and me in favor of drinking te...

What original Xbox game are you most excited to play again?

When coming up with this week's question, I had a thought. Looking back over the past Destructoid Discusses, I never centered one around the Xbox. Now, part of that reason is I've never owned an Xbox. I have been able to play all three gene...

What's keeping you busy during this slow summer season?

Things have been a little slow on the blogging-about-video-games front, which works out okay now that we've got shows like Red Rocket League and The D-Team up on our new Dtoid Fight YouTube channel, but makes for some scattershot podcast ep...

Celebrating 25 Years of Ecco the Dolphin

I just got back from a family vacation and have been feeling pretty burned out. For my wife, kids, and I, it was the first significant journey we took anywhere; a mere 14-hour road trip which might not seem like much, but with two kids in t...

What is the hardest game you have ever played?

Sitting on my desk right now are unopened copies of Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2. Having just got a PlayStation 4, I’m playing a bit of catch up with some of the games I’ve missed over its life. I’ve never played a Dark Sou...

So what's up with the ending to Miitopia?

The 3DS’s days may be numbered, but the plucky little handheld isn’t ready to call it quits just yet. Today it’s seeing the release of two new first-party games in Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. Both are cute, late-in-the-game ...

George Miller needs to make a video game

Last week, the cinema world lost one of its giant giants. I refer to George A. Romero as a giant giant for two reasons: 1) He basically invented an entire genre of film, and 2) the motherfucker was 6’4”. Goddamn that is tall. If...
