The evolution of Super Meat Boy Forever

I had the chance to speak with Tommy Refenes, one of the co-founders of Team Meat, and he gave me a much clearer understanding of just how much Super Meat Boy Forever has changed over the years.  As an adamant fan of the original title...

Robit Riddle is a kid's gateway into role-playing

Tabletop role-playing has survived all these years, through the advent of video games and the resurgence of board games starting in the 1990s. One reason it's still around is that it provides an experience those other media don't. It gives ...

Root has cute animals and a vicious revolutionary uprising

Asymmetry in board games is a tricky thing. Do it wrong, and asymmetry can lead to imbalance, which can lead to flipped tables and scattered pieces, or at the very least a muttering of "I'll never play that again."  So most games that ...

In Superhot: The Card Game, cards only move when you do

Superhot was slick as heck last year. The stark red-on-white low-poly models were one part of that, but the real draw was its unique "time only moves when you do" mechanic, allowing for careful planning and some Matrix-esque bullet-dodging....

We've got some three-day PAX Unplugged passes to give away

The first ever PAX Unplugged is starting in just one week! It's nice to see a PAX that didn't sell out immediately. In fact, all but the Saturday tickets are still available on the show's website. But you know what? You, dear loyal Destruct...

Ship It takes Tetris to another dimension

If there's a pantheon of gaming, surely Tetris is the god of puzzle games. The satisfying feeling when you manage to clear a row needs no translation, and the Russian export has been played on every continent of the earth. The simple c...

Children of Morta will be one to watch in 2018

You might remember Patrick covering Children of Morta just over a year ago. He previewed the "narrative-driven" hack-and-slash game about a family of guardians fending off the spread of monsters and corruption to their mountain, noting it h...

Celeste is the next pure platformer to keep an eye on

Platforming has been around for so long, it's ingrained in us as a basic skill. It's like walking or breathing. We just do it. It's such a basic skill, many games these days use it as the vehicle to get to where they really want to go. Puzz...

Runner 3 trades Bit.Trip for a rocketship

Hard as it may be to believe, the Bit.Trip series has been around since 2009. The franchise got its start on the Wii, and developers Choice Provisions have had a close relationship with Nintendo since the studio's inception. Runner 3&n...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

The Evil Within 2 feels like a more well-rounded game

I thought The Evil Within 2 had a strong first showing at E3. The imagery in the reveal trailer woke me the hell up (remember, Bethesda's presser was on a Sunday night), and I'm always down for contorted monstrosities in my spooky video gam...

Monster Hunter: World will be the one that gets me

My history with the Monster Hunter series is painfully, regretfully abrupt. I attempted to get into it years ago, on PlayStation Portable, but bounced off so hard that I can't even confidently say which installment I tried. That experience ...

Wattam is almost too cute for words

Wattam, the new project from Katmari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi, is really coming into its own. The last time I went hands-on with it, I described it as "more toy than game," but noted that it was infectiously joyful a...

The Crew 2 is shaping up to be my open-world racer of choice

Ubisoft's latest showing for The Crew 2 was a lot like its last, but I'm not complaining. This weekend, I got another crack at the racer's open-world antics. Morphing between a car, plane, and boat in real time without losing momentum conti...
