Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment manages to differentiate itself quite a bit, here's some gameplay

Yacht Club Games is gearing up for their second free expansion for the original Shovel Knight -- a game that I felt was wholly complete on its own, but is somehow the gift that keeps on giving. Plague Knight was really good, ...   read

It will require a heat action to open the Yakuza 0 Business Edition

I think a little part of me died when I saw John Hardin, Sega's PR manager, smash the box of Yakuza 0 The Business Edition with a hammer. It was hysterical, but all I could think of was how damaged the game would be. You shouldn't damage Ya...   read

The Flame in the Flood's PS4 port is a Southern Gothic treat

I bought The Flame in the Flood when it released on Steam last year. And while I only played for an hour or two, The Molasses Flood’s debut resonated with me thanks to its melancholy vision of a post-societal America. It’s a new...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2016 turn out?

One year ago, before 2016 became a hackneyed punchline ("2016? More like 2000-sucks-teen!!!" the peanut gallery offered when Johnny Depp tragically fell into an active volcano while doing the "Mannequin Challenge" on its rim), we had hope. ...   read

The objective guide to the Top Ten Games of 2016, presented by your favorite video boy Myles Cox

Hi. Hello. Boy. Yikes. Twenty-sixteen. That was something. I feel like I’m not going to cover enough ground if I write anything about how just absolutely terrible 2016 was, so instead I’m just going to focus on the good here &md...   read

Destructoid's award for Best Vita Game of 2016 goes to...

The Zero Escape series came out of nowhere in 2009 on the original DS, and captivated people enough to actually cement it as a real franchise. Fans clamored for years, and eventually, we got Virtue's Last Reward in 2012. Ages of clamoring a...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Vita Game of 2016

I will never forget heading to GameStop to pick up my day one Vita with that beautiful OLED screen. There was no one else there, no doubt scared off by the high price tag of the proprietary memory cards. It was a stupid mistake and that hub...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best 3DS Game of 2016

Big budget console role-playing games can take forever to release and be huge events; take Final Fantasy XV's ten-year development as an example. But on the humble 3DS, great RPGs show up every few months. Of our nine favorite 3DS game...   read

Review: Wild Guns Reloaded

We're officially in an era of remakes and remasters, but not all of them are created equal. I mean, we have "remasters" of games that are barely several years old, and they're actually worse off than the originals. But in the case of W...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2016

Look, we all know video games are great, but you can't bring your cutting edge gaming PC or your Xbox Steel Battalion controller with you everywhere you go. Or maybe you can, but you probably shouldn't. It's bad for your back. Thankfully, t...   read

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

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
