Ninjala is cute in concept but it's certainly no Splatoon

I love it when developers can succinctly describe their game and capture its tone in an original way. Ninjala, a newly-announced Nintendo Switch title from GungHo Online Entertainment, belongs to the "ninja gum action" genre. Trust me, it m...

Killer Queen Black is a buzzworthy party game

I like to jot down a few notes before I write about a game. It helps me get my mind in the right place. After spending some hands-on time with Killer Queen Black, I immediately took out my notebook and started writing.  It wasn't until...

Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels so dang good

Microsoft had a fairly stacked E3 press conference with reveals for Devil May Cry 5 and From Software's badass Tenchu-looking action game Sekiro. I'm dying to dig into both! But there's another game that's flying slightly more under the rad...

Yaga is a charming action-RPG take on Slavic folklore

Mythology, folklore, and video games go so well together. If I didn't already hold that opinion, then Yaga, an upcoming action-RPG drawing from Slavic culture and stories, would've shown me the light. In Yaga, you play a blacksmith caught b...

PyroMind is a frantic puzzle game about defusing bombs

No more than ten seconds into my first round of PyroMind, I knew I was hooked. It's a simple but filling action-puzzler in which you strategically move across tiles, defusing bombs to score points and stay alive. New bombs regularly appear,...

Boss Golf has all the charm of the '90s 'Tycoon' games

"Tycoon" style games used to be all the rage in the late ‘90s. After Rollercoaster Tycoon proved the formula was popular, various knock-offs flooded the casual PC market and made it incredibly easy to pick up a tycoon game for your pr...

Getting weird with Knuckle Sandwich

DUSK's Episode Three is shaping up nicely

Sometimes the best way to get an exclusive is to simply ask. While Destructoid isn’t lacking for content about New Blood’s upcoming FPS throwback DUSK, I was curious how the upcoming Episode Three was shaping up. Turns out I jus...
