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

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is too damn cute

At trade shows, PR teams often try to get our attention by using phrases like "visceral" or "incredibly impressive graphics," and it all sorta blends together after awhile. Not so with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a remake of Dragon's Cur...   read

Heroes of the Storm adopts MOBA-standard 'armor' system, doubles down on ranked play

Heroes of the Storm isn't as popular as DOTA 2 or League of Legends, and there's a lot of potential reasons for that. For one, Blizzard was really late into the game, jumping into the fray years after League of Legends had already...   read

Just Cause 3 gets an unofficial multiplayer mod

Dang, XCOM 2 is only $12 in this Humble Monthly deal

Yesterday's news of the Long War 2 mod reminded me that I failed to snag XCOM 2 at launch and, dumber yet, while it was discounted in recent end-of-year sales. But actually, that indecisiveness has paid off -- the alien-blastin', bad-luck-c...   read

More games on Steam doesn't mean more money for Valve

Steam saw an unprecedented influx of new games in 2016. Of all the titles added to the distribution service since its 2003 launch, 38 percent of them were added last year. Many of those games are very bad, sure, but there's no questioning t...   read

When did team Ghost become such dicks?

At the start of this Ghost Recon Wildlands trailer, I was a bit confused by what I was seeing. I thought this was some type of extravagant CGI, but it looked a bit stiff. Then it dawned on me that this was live action and I became even more...   read

Review: HoPiKo

Have you ever wondered why a lot of modern platforming games have nothing to do with platform jumping? While I appreciate the amount of diversity that exists within the genre, why are most of the obstacles usually enemies instead of the lev...   read

I can't stand this new look at Bloodstained, but I can't quite figure out why

There's some new footage of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and it's bugging the hell out of me. For its eighth development update, we get protagonist Miriam platforming her way through a town. It's an innocuous 30 seconds. But, for...   read

Razer's triple-screen laptop is bananas

Project Valerie, a concept laptop Razer is showing off at CES 2017, almost seems like retrofuturism. It's like a what-if scenario of how technology could have developed, only predicted way too soon. This "mobile desktop" has three 17.3" 4K ...   read
