Monsters and Monocles is a steampunk arcade shooter full of dandies

Monsters and Monocles is a send-up to the days of quarter-guzzling afternoons spent at the arcade. It’s a top-down shooter full of Victorian dandies and steampunk aesthetics that encourages solo play as much as it welcomes cooperative...   read

I played a game where you help a Donald Trump cat run for President

Right now in my Destructoid email, I have roughly 25,000 unread emails. It’s quite the eclectic collection of crap I’ll never read, from press releases in Japanese I don’t understand to the YouTubers who want us to know th...   read


Disgaea 2 is coming to Steam, but not until January

Typically, when I hear that an older game is being ported over to PC, I expect to see it pop up on Steam in the near future. A few weeks. Maybe a month. Hell, sometimes they're even stealth-released! The newly-announced port of Disgaea 2, t...   read


The final update for Fez on PC and Mac is a doozy

One of these days, I need to play Fez again. It's been long enough that, aside from a couple of area themes like the "Virtual Boy red and black"-looking sewers and the Disasterpeace soundtrack, I don't really remember anything concrete abou...   read

Natural disasters are next for Cities: Skylines

Next on the docket for Cities: Skylines is something most any simulation game could benefit from: natural disasters! Your citizens may suffer at the hands of meteorites or spreading fires, but as their omniscient mayor, you can claim innoc...   read


Solbrain Knight of Darkness steals artwork, music, and more

[Header courtesy of coocoon on DeviantArt] People should be (sadly) familiar with what an asset-flip game is by now. It's where a (typically) crappy developer rips graphics, artwork, game mechanics, or music from another source and fails to...   read

Review: Okhlos

If there's a game concept I'd like to see become prevalent, it's the one where you amass an army of little dudes to wail on much-bigger monsters. Pikmin. Overlord. Little King's Story. Only those three readily come to mind, and while my mem...   read


This is one of the best Humble Indie Bundles in a while

You've probably heard of most if not all of the handsome games found in the Humble Indie Bundle 17. Some of you will have already bought and played them. You're swell. If not, boy, it's time to extend that backlog, and you too can be on the...   read

Fantastic sci-fi 4x board game Eclipse is coming to PC

One of 2011's hottest board games was Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy. It blended classic space 4X gameplay with a European-style board game mechanic governing the economy. I was fortunate enough to get a copy during its initial print run,...   read


This survival-centric Humble Bundle has Rust for cheap

It's a hell of a week to put on a survival-themed bundle, what with No Man's Sky eating evenings for the foreseeable future, but some of these games in the Humble Survive This Bundle are worth adding to your library (on the off chance ...   read


Review: Kentucky Route Zero Act IV

If the movie Inside Out taught us that sadness is a necessary and complex emotion, Kentucky Route Zero is that idea’s logical endpoint. The three acts released up to this point have been sublime, presenting a world and characters mire...   read

Review: Death Road to Canada

Execution is everything. We've seen lots of zombie survival games, and plenty of experiences that build on the classic Oregon Trail formula with one gimmick or another. Heck, there have even been titles that combine the two. But there is on...   read

Review: Epistory - Typing Chronicles

It's not often a game forces the player to learn a new control scheme. The dual-stick setup of most modern controllers and the WASD keyboard layout are established as as a standard at this point, so a game needs a very good reason to stray ...   read
