Voice acting doesn't necessarily improve 999

I have been in love with the Zero Escape series since former Destructoid editor Tony Ponce reviewed the first game in the franchise, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, seven years ago. He gave it a well deserved 10/10 and after reading t...   read

Puyo Puyo Tetris will not have the same streaming restrictions as Persona 5 in the west

After the Persona 5 debacle, where even western users dealt with crazy streaming restrictions, folks posited that Sega was starting to make it a habit. I mean, they just confirmed this week that Puyo Puyo Tetris would suffer the same fate, ...   read

Review: A Rose in the Twilight

Did you know in the original version of The Little Mermaid, when the central character gets her legs, every step she takes feels as though she is walking on knives? And instead of marrying the prince at the end, she dies and turns into seaf...   read

You can now blast DAYTONNNNNAAA on your Xbox One

While we may not be getting an extreme amount of backward compatible titles on Xbox One today, at least Daytona USA is finally available on the system. The classic racing game was truly a technical marvel back in 1993 and remains a highly e...   read

Review: World of Goo (Switch)

Wait long enough, and everything old can start to feel new again. That's the happy accident of a situation I found myself in with World of Goo, the near-universally well-liked puzzle game about plucking and plopping down living bits of gooe...   read

Review: DYING: Reborn VR

I have to admit that despite having a PS VR in my possession since late last year, I haven't played with it all that often. Partly this is due to real-life concerns butting in, and partly due to the deluge of excellent non-VR titles of the ...   read

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together!

The game selection on Nintendo Switch right now is decidedly sparse, but I don't mind. Two titles are keeping me plenty busy, and if you've glanced at the eShop yet, I bet you know 'em. The first, of course, is The Legend of Zelda: Breath o...   read

Review: Circles

One of the defining aspects of old-school games is the ability to teach through gameplay. Since there wasn’t a lot of storage space for text to explain individual moves, games had to organically lead players down the correct path. Thi...   read

Puzzle adventure The Gardens Between looks dreamy

The Gardens Between, an upcoming Windows and Mac game from The Voxel Agents, makes a strong first impression. The puzzles themselves manifest as little diorama-like dream worlds, and the self-described "bittersweet story of friendship" tra...   read

Cool looking puzzle-platformer Snake Pass gets a release date

In our current harsh climate, I've been appreciating gaming's return to the happy-go-lucky days of brightly colored animal mascots getting into shenanigans. Couple this with a studio that's produced tons of great experiences like Sumo Digit...   read

Puyo Puyo Tetris rotates, rotates, rotates, then drops on April 25

Puyo Puyo Tetris is a name that doesn't fuck around. This is a game that is Puyo Puyo and it's also Tetris, but sometimes it is both at the same time. That's cold-blooded efficiency, the kind you'd expect from something that is a...   read

Slithering 3D platformer Snake Pass is hitting Nintendo Switch

I have the distinct feeling we're going to be reading a lot of "so-and-so confirmed for Switch" stories these next few weeks leading up to the system's launch. Why, look at that! There's one right here. Sumo Digital is bringing its puzzle-p...   read

Statik's VR puzzles made me feel like a genius and an idiot at the same time

I haven't spent much time with PlayStation VR because there has yet to be a game to really pull me in. While the games have seemed cool, I never truly felt like I was fully immersed in another world like much of VR's advertising promised me...   read

Sticks and stones may break your bones but in Haimrik words will hurt you

I didn't know much about Haimrik before getting my hands on it during PAX South. Other than its eye-catching art direction, not much has been said about the title. Glancing at its sepia-toned world, I had a slight worry that I wouldn't enjo...   read

Hidden Folks looks and sounds delightful

Much like Darren, I am wholly on board with a game that takes the Where's Waldo? concept and just runs with it. That's the appeal of Hidden Folks and its painstakingly hand-drawn illustrations that'll have you poking and prodding and hunti...   read

Nintendo Switch will also have World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine at launch

World of Goo was an early highlight on WiiWare, and now, all these years and a far different indie scene later, it's looping back for a launch-day release on Nintendo Switch. Consider me pleasantly surprised. New Switch owners will also be ...   read

The Sexy Brutale is Groundhog Day in a murder-casino

I've had The Sexy Brutale in my periphery for a while, because the name has "sexy" in it, and sex sells, but now that there's a gameplay trailer, there's finally something to go on. And it looks neat. Cool art, nice music; kind of reminds ...   read
