Nominees for Destructoid's Best VR Game of 2016

Modern VR is in its infancy, but three big publishers came out of the gate swinging this year. Oculus, Valve, and Sony are all vying for your attention (and by proxy, an entire paycheck to pay for the tech), and in that confrontation, some ...   read

Pokemon Go has several Gold/Silver Pokemon as of today

I've said for some time now that if Niantic started pulling from the Gold and Silver generation for Pokémon Go, I'd have to earnestly get back into it, and here we are. In December. Better bundle up! Pichu, Togepi, and "select other...   read

Surprise, Pewdiepie's channel deletion threat was a troll

Well, he technically deleted a channel, I guess. So that obvious publicity stunt from top YouTuber Pewdiepie came to a close today, and after reaching 50 million subscribers, he revealed that the entire thing was a joke. In the video b...   read

Review: Werewolves Within

Odds are you've played a game called "werewolf" or "mafia" once in your life. The rules are simple -- one or more people are an "imposter" of sorts, among a group of normal players who are attempting to figure out said imposter. At the end ...   read

Mech_Con and the 2016 MechWarrior Championship was an eSports event for a hardcore community

When I traveled to Vancouver last year to cover the Steam launch event for MechWarrior Online, I was surprised when Piranha Games also took the opportunity to announce the launch of the 2016 MechWarrior World Championship. A six-month-long ...   read

Review: I Expect You To Die

The VR industry is really starting to take shape. Sure, a lot of the games out there are still limited experiences -- guided tours, if you will -- but even in the infancy of the technology, it's something we haven't quite seen before. Is th...   read

Review: The Unspoken

I wasn't really on board with many of the waggle-fests that littered the Wii's library both at launch and near the end of its life. Many titles just felt like an excuse to sell more Wiimotes, and don't even get me started on the Motion Plus...   read

The sublime simplicity of Skate 3

The analog sticks on my PlayStation 3 controller refuse to stay in place. They're loose and unruly to an absurd degree. The right stick drifts upwards, slowly and surely, without a thumb to guide it. When I apply pressure to it, the stick c...   read

Review: Small Radios Big Televisions

I can't help but think that living in a world where entertainment is readily available without the tether of actual physical media has made analog devices retroactively desirable once again. There's something powerful about the physicality ...   read

Review: Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Last year, Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki pledged to continue making games with tenderness and his unchanging love for boobs. After spending several hours with Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, I can say he kept his word because...   read

Review: Earth's Dawn

Take a pinch of Odin Sphere's art and gameplay, toss in some Monster Hunter loot-grinding, and repetition, and add a smidgen of Gears of War for flavor. Let simmer and serve both digitally and in retail to the select few who didn't just buy...   read

Review: King's Quest: The Good Knight

King's Quest has had a good run over the course of its five-episode spread. As an overlooked adventure series from the minds of developer The Odd Gentlemen, I think part of the reason it's been off so many radars is because the first c...   read

Review: Corpse Party

Yes, we're reviewing Corpse Party. We already did it back on the PSP. Not much has changed since then, but sometimes a game is so interesting and so unlike anything else on the market that it deserves a second look.   read

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...   read

Review: DoDonPachi Resurrection

Maize's chatty corn and Russian teddy bear left me wanting more

Cornfields are an underrated pick for places that have the potential for bad and/or otherwise weird shit to happen. Sure, they aren't as ubiquitously ominous as abandoned hospitals or decrepit mansions, but cornfields have a long history of...   read

Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and Hamilton (for some reason)
