Life is Strange is hella awkward on mobile

It’s interesting how much your life can change when you simply don’t have time to do anything. I work full time, have a three-hour commute each day, and somehow manage to pop out shitty articles for this website on a semi-regula...

Watch me play vampiric action-RPG Code Vein badly

While I was at Namco Bandai's Level Up event in Paris, I had the opportunity to check out the exceedingly metal trailer for their upcoming release Code Vein, as well as get a few minutes with the hardcore action-RPG itself. Absolutely dripp...

I played Soulcalibur VI and here are my humble thoughts

This weekend, I had the good fortune to be in attendance at Namco Bandai's LEVEL UP Winter event, transporting me from cold, soggy Nottingham to cold, soggy Paris. Held at Le Huit Valois convention centre, writers, journalists, professional...

My emotional EGX-perience with Detroit: Become Human

"Hello. Welcome to Detroit..."It was a warm and friendly voice, but it was coming from a young woman with a hollow, vacant face, stood in a pose like she was at one with the universe, yet ready to pounce into action at a second's notice. Th...

My janky EGX-perience with Assassin's Creed Origins

Despite queuing for entrance on each of the days I attended EGX, and even standing in line for Super Mario Odyssey on its UK debut, the queue for Assassin's Creed Origins was easily the longest line in terms of duration (though it still see...

My bullet-riddled EGX-perience with Huntdown

The Xbox presence at EGX this weekend was surprisingly small. Whilst Nintendo and PlayStation had full hall-quarter setups and stage areas, and even individual games like Destiny having huge devoted floorspace. Xbox had a somewhat modest ar...

My traumatising EGX-perience with Monster Hunter World

"I only came here to play this!"I turned my head to see a wide-eyed girl beaming at me like it was Christmas, her eyes glistening behind her trendy millennial glasses. Whereas she was really excited, I was more baffled, as I turned back to ...

The Retro AVS Wireless NES Gamepad is out and worth a look

While sitting around killing time with Kingsway (best thing ever go buy it) and staving off what I can only assume to be a deadly parasite after drinking so much delicious ocean water while on vacation, the doorbell rang. I answered in my t...

Miitopia is very much Tomodachi Life: The RPG

I’m several hours into Miitopia, the new RPG for the Nintendo 3DS releasing at the end of the month, but I’m already thinking I should start over. Not because I’ve made any mistakes as that so far is impossible to do. I wa...

Ever Oasis isn't what I thought it would be

As I write this, my save file for Ever Oasis is at the seven-hour mark. This is the point where the game is just starting to become fun. The story is progressing, the action is stepping up and I’m really getting into the flow of this ...

Voice acting doesn't necessarily improve 999

I have been in love with the Zero Escape series since former Destructoid editor Tony Ponce reviewed the first game in the franchise, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, seven years ago. He gave it a well deserved 10/10 and after reading t...

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...

Not to shit on Detroit, but a lot of the redicule Ive seen about some parts has me re-appreciating how good I found Subsurface Short but a gripping narrative about seemingly similar (Edit: Spelling whoops)
