The current hottest game on Steam is League of Legends minus most of the shitty parts

My first thoughts upon seeing Battlerite's Steam page was "This looks like yet another boring and doomed-to-fail League of Legends clone," which I'm sure would be the reaction of most people who haven't played the game.  Let ...   read

The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

PAX this year was a little strange for me. I was brought on to Destructoid just as the deadline to apply for media badges expired, so I went to the show as a regular attendee, and didn't take appointments like Brett and Jordan did. I still ...   read

Toon Zelda is a g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-girl

I was a bit surprised yesterday when Nintendo announced the next set of DLC for Hyrule Warriors had dropped. I knew it was coming, I just didn't expect it to come that day. Rumors pointed to Toon Zelda being the next new character for ...   read

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...   read

Loot Rascals is an approachable roguelike in a colorful shell

Only masochists could possibly enjoy Lost Reavers

Moments before breathing his last breath, my grand peppers said to me, "Jed, there is nothing in this world that is free and one day you'll realize that your time is what is valuable." He was right. I've let him down by wasting so much o...   read

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goals in mind for t...   read

Night in the Woods is an adventure game for millennials who shrug at Hot Topic

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...   read

Is it fun to beat protesters and molotov the police in Riot - Civil Unrest?

I've had my eye on Riot - Civil Unreset since it was announced in 2013 via a crowdfunding campaign. I'm a big fan of politics - social and otherwise - and can't think of a single other game that lets players take a somewhat realistic l...   read

She Remembered Caterpillars is a charming bug puzzle adventure

When I first saw there was a game on the PAX East show floor called She Remembered Caterpillars, I was expecting some kind of 3D walking simulator about a young girl tending a garden. As it turns out, it's something entirely different and a...   read

I got my dick destroyed in Outlast 2

The original Outlast had a nice combination of jump scares and actual horror; someone would pop out and scare you, before giving chase as you ran away and hid from them. You'd hear footsteps, breathing, and see enemies stand inches awa...   read

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a brown, clunky, cash-in of a card game
