I totally regret canceling my Nintendo Switch pre-order

The blistering cold wind kept me close to the building, my arms tight against my body. I had known it would be chilly but foolishly didn’t prepare for the wind even though I would be right on the water. With two hours to kill, I attem...   read

Death Squared will test your puzzle solving skills, and your relationships

The lobby of the San Francisco Hilton was congested as 9 to 5ers met over cocktails, conversed, laughed, and routinely checked their smartphones looking for a better time than the one they were currently having. Well off my normal path, I s...   read

Hands-on: Nintendo Switch won't blow you away but will satisfy core gamers

Boy, what a doozy! If there was an award for most complicated game system, Nintendo's Switch would win in a landslide. The simple name really betrays the true complexity of the system given its seemly uncountable number of ways to play game...   read

Destiny's two new racing maps are more enjoyable than I expected

I'm not the Destiny dude around here. That'd be Chris or Darren. But I was the one at PSX over the weekend, so I am control of the #content around here and decided I was gonna try Destiny's two new Sparrow Racing League maps. Did I overcome...   read

What Remains of Edith Finch continues to be horrifying, dreamy, and intriguing

Few games stick with me after conventions as much as What Remains of Edith Finch has for the past two PlayStation Experiences. Last year, a shorter-haired, thinner me was on PlayStation's livecast to talk about why it intrigues me so (look ...   read

The tactical ship battles of Dreadnought are coming to PS4, and hoo boy are they good

Somehow, Yager's take on gigantic tactical ships blasting the ever-loving crap out of each other stealthed under my radar. Dreadnought has been in closed beta since last April on PC, but it's now coming to the PlayStation 4 as well. I playe...   read

Salt and Sanctuary is shaping up nicely on Vita

When I reviewed Salt and Sanctuary earlier this year on PlayStation 4, I found it to be a more-than-competent side-scrolling take on From Software's Souls series. I played the majority of it in co-op and had a great time with its intricate ...   read

Paradigm is the surrealist point-and-click adventure that I didn't know I needed

I’m going to start this preview by opening up a little; I’m going to admit that I have no nostalgic memories of point-and-click adventure gaming, nor is it a genre that I’m well-acquainted with. I grew up playing console t...   read

Gravity Rush 2 is exactly as I'd expected, and that's a damn good thing

I would be lying if I said that Gravity Rush 2 wasn’t the first game I ran to the moment I got through the door on day one of PAX Australia. I know that Steven Hansen has already previewed it at E3, but considering that this has been ...   read

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

What if I told you there is this game called Loot Rascals made by some of the people who made Hohokum, and featured art by the artists behind Adventure Time and Alphabear? Well I'm telling you now, because Rascals is an extre...   read

Marin lets freedom ring in Hyrule Warriors

In just a couple of months, we'll be celebrating the two-year anniversary of Hyrule Warriors. Released in September 2014, it was the first of four games published by Nintendo that gave the flailing Wii U what little pulse it could muster fo...   read

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

When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods is a colorful ad...   read

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

Raw Data made me feel like Will Smith in I, Robot

Robots are sentient and coming at you and your co-op partner from every direction. You must work together to kill them all with a plethora of guns and a badass sword that can reflect projectiles. No, it isn't I, Robot 2: Bad Boys, it's Raw ...   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

Hitman GO VR is an Oculus exclusive, VR features not coming to Steam version

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

Bethesda seems to be on a streak of trying to cash-in on already saturated markets. First it was The Elders Scrolls Online, and now it's the Hearthstone-like card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Publishers can't help but see the amou...   read
