For better or worse, Fortnite seems like a real time sink

At E3, I was reunited with Fortnite, Epic's long-in-development-but-almost-there game about gathering resources, building out fortified bases with traps, and gunning down and/or slicing up the incoming zombie horde. This was my third time p...

Project CARS 2 is coming at the king, it best not miss

Over the course of all the E3 appointments I've attended in my six years covering the show, I don't think I've ever heard someone place equal emphasis on their game and why it's better than the competition. Project CARS 2 creative dire...

Agents of Mayhem feels like a boiled down Saints Row

I've been hooked to Volition's Saints Row series ever since it underwent a major tonal reboot with Saints Row: The Third. The series may have been a victim of diminishing returns as of late -- you can only jump over the proverbial shar...

South Park's E3 demo was somehow the most ridiculous one yet

Last September, I hit rock bottom as a games writer. Against my better judgment, I let Ubisoft strap a fart machine to my face for a demo of South Park: The Fractured but Whole. Bad call. Terrible. Just awful, really. Deals are not my art f...

Frostpunk lets you put kids to work to keep society happy

I've never been too fond of simulator games since I tend to ruin everyone's virtual lives in The Sims, or set out to create death coasters in Roller Coaster Tycoon. God games never quite have enough of an emotional draw to keep me inve...

The Crew 2 feels like a do-over in the best possible way

Ubisoft is doing some genuinely cool, surprising things with The Crew 2. As someone who dug the heck out of the flawed but rewarding free-form original, I couldn't be more pleased. For instance: that world-bending Inception shit from the ci...

Vote now for Destructoid's E3 2017 Community Choice Award!

Whew - another year, another E3! It seems like moreso this year than any previous in recent memory, the developers, publishers, and whatever the hell you'd call The PC Gaming Show really hunkered down and focused not on flashy presentations...

Far Cry 5's story will need to do the heavy lifting

"Have you played Far Cry before?" That was the first thing a Ubisoft rep asked me behind closed doors as I picked up a controller, selected a gun-fetching dog as my companion, and waited to load into Hope County, Montana. "Most of them," I ...

We administered the ultimate gamer quiz to E3 attendees

With E3 open to the public this year, I figured this was a great chance to talk to the people. To ask the real, salt of the earth gamers: what's on your mind? Why did you come to E3? What has impressed you so far? I immediately shelved tha...

Catch all the E3 2017 spectacle with our video walking tour

E3 was more crowded than ever this year with it being open to the public. If you didn't shell out the cash to brave perpetually-under-construction downtown Los Angeles, that's okay! I took some time from my packed schedule to do a full vid...

Dragon Ball FighterZ feels like playing the show

While I haven't played anything from Arc System Works since 2012's Persona 4 Arena and haven't watched a full episode of Dragon Ball Z since VHS was the go-to home video format, I was immediately jazzed for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Some of it ...

The E3 2017 Dumbstructoid Awards

E3 has come and gone and boy was it… fun? Entertaining? Exciting? None of the above?  Look, it’s a trade show, a five day long commercial for products we’ll buy, play, and trade in for shitty GameStop credit. Or, we&...

Sega seems up for Yakuza and Persona on PC

Sega has made a lot of strides with porting over Japanese made games to PC. Just this year we've seen ports of Bayonetta and Vanquish, so it looks like the sky is the limit when it comes to series. In an interview with PC Gamer, John Clark ...

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's 3-on-3 battles are a huge mess

As one of the more pressing titles I've been looking forward to playing ever since watching trailers for its arcade release, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a game I'm glad exists. Playing it, on the other hand, is a totally different story. E...
