Review: BlazBlue: Central Fiction

It's been tough for me to get into BlazBlue. My first ever Arc System Works fighter was the original Guilty Gear, and I've been a believer ever since. When BlazBlue rolled around 10 years later a lot of my crew was already investe...   read

Review: Hitman: Hokkaido

Well folks, this is it! The time has come where we stop arguing about whether or not "it would be nice if Hitman just released a damn complete edition already." With its "Japan" episode, production is finished, and although the physica...   read

Review: Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Dragon Ball games have been a part of my entire life. I played classics such as the Super Butoden series on the SNES and more recent but classic titles like the Budokai series. Throughout the years I’ve also experienced terrible Drago...   read

Review: Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Last year, Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki pledged to continue making games with tenderness and his unchanging love for boobs. After spending several hours with Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, I can say he kept his word because...   read

Review: Earth's Dawn

Take a pinch of Odin Sphere's art and gameplay, toss in some Monster Hunter loot-grinding, and repetition, and add a smidgen of Gears of War for flavor. Let simmer and serve both digitally and in retail to the select few who didn't just buy...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: New World Order

The saga continues. Batman is in a jam, and now in typical Batman-related fashion, he's forged more enemies as a direct result of his own actions. What's a Bat to do? Punch and think his way out, of course.   read

Review: King's Quest: The Good Knight

King's Quest has had a good run over the course of its five-episode spread. As an overlooked adventure series from the minds of developer The Odd Gentlemen, I think part of the reason it's been off so many radars is because the first c...   read

Review: Civilization VI

Over the course of many playthroughs and almost three full days of game time, Civilization VI is still on my mind. I’ve gone through the motion of placing districts, training an army, distributing “great” people, and build...   read

Review: Corpse Party

Yes, we're reviewing Corpse Party. We already did it back on the PSP. Not much has changed since then, but sometimes a game is so interesting and so unlike anything else on the market that it deserves a second look.   read

Review: World of Warcraft the Official Cookbook

When the opportunity came along to cover the official World of Warcraft cookbook, I jumped at it. While I don't share this fact much online, my wife and I have been cooking together on a weekly basis for over 10 years, and our German a...   read

Review: Battlefield 1

Annual Battlefield games, much like Call of Duty, are no surprise. They give the Call of Duty series a run for its money in terms of DLC (they not only have a season pass, but a "club" system), and in any given year, they could produce a pa...   read

Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...   read

Review: Battlezone

Out of all the PlayStation VR launch games, none was a bigger question mark for me than Battlezone. Maybe I'm underestimating the appreciation and allegiance for this classic arcade property, but ever since hearing about Rebellion's 2016 re...   read

Review: Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity

Usually, when we talk about fan games here on Destructoid, it means Nintendo just shut one down. But not every company is against fans using its properties to create their own games. In fact, some encourage it. Take Team Shanghai Alice. Its...   read

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

Just when I think they're out of ideas, they pull me back in. Skylanders has been one of the most consistent series Activision has been pumping out in recent years. I mean, it has no business clearing that goal in a way, as the entire ...   read

Review: Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel

Souls DLC is a risk by design. The core games are crafted around a multitude of different concepts bound by a cohesive theme that just comes together by the time you reach the finish line. So by adding on extra optional quests months down t...   read

Review: GoNNER

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...   read

Review: Eagle Flight

Ubisoft loves the open world shtick. Loves it. It just can't help itself, and I'm imagining that during every company pitch, Yves Guillemot adds at the end of it "but yes, how can we make it open world?" Yet this time for its foray int...   read

Review in Progress: WWE 2K17
