Early Access Review: My Time at Portia

In the not-too-distant past of 2016, a little game called Stardew Valley came along to eat up an alarming amount of my free time. Stardew filled the void left by relaxing social and farming sims like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing.&n...


Review: The Fall Part 2: Unbound

The first game in this series, The Fall, was a great sci-fi title with some major flaws which kept the experience from mass appeal. It followed the exploits of an AI named Arid, who was trying to save the life of her human companion. There ...


Review: Retro-Bit NES Power Stick

When I first opened the Power Stick by Retro-Bit, nostalgic memories came flooding back. Images from my childhood of playing games in front of the glow of the television screen in the middle of the night cuddled up under a blanket, and toss...


Review: Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

I still remember seeing the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII 12 years ago. It was beautiful and captivating while also ripe for mockery with its emo-as-hell protagonist. 12 years ago that game was supposed to only be a few...


Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I've played a great deal of role-playing games in my time, whether they be Japanese or Western, from your various Final Fantasy titles to the vast and open world Elder Scrolls games, and all things in-between. As great as these games are, w...


Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...


Review: Rust

There's a fatalistic cycle at the heart of Rust. Every life begins the same. Players spawn on the shores of an uncaring island, naked and ill-equipped to make it through the day. Every life ends the same, too: with the clinical inevitabilit...


Review: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

Age of Empires was a fundamental part of my RTS education. Two years before it I was enjoying the futurist spin of Command & Conquer and the fantasy vibes of Warcraft II, but Age of Empires offered up something else entirely -- a middle...


Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...


Review: Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame is a first for me as a contributor to Destructoid as it’s a title I’ve covered from reveal to release. I was there for its announcement, playing the version developer Mile...


Review: Fe

What little we've known about Fe has seemed cleverly wrapped in enigma, like this forest is hiding mysteries that are just begging to be solved. That's half true. There's something to uncover at nearly every turn in Fe but nothing...

Review: Black Panther

The fact of the matter is you don't see movies like Black Panther made. I'm not talking about the groundbreaking facts you already know about the movie: an almost entirely black cast, with an almost entirely black creative team leading, giv...


Review: Bayonetta (Switch)

Capcom really screwed the pooch when it shut down Clover Studios and lost the creative minds behind Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand. Those are three all-time classics of the 128-bit generation. It’s a shame to lose out on new entri...


Review: Dynasty Warriors 9

Omega Force knows what its fans want when it creates Warriors games. Lord knows tons of outsiders have asked, begged, or pleaded with Koei Tecmo to "try something new," and for the most part we've had the same hack-and-slash foundation...


Review: Space Invaders Extreme (PC)

Almost 10 years ago, Space Invaders Extreme released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable and blew people away. The game was a wild reinvention of one of the most iconic shmups ever made and it somehow transformed a 30-year-old prop...


Review: Mutant Football League

All this talk about “sportsball” on Twitter during the Super Bowl sort of eluded me. Yes, I get it; gamers and geek culture are not generally associated with being sports fans. I can’t even properly say I am one myself. I ...

Review: The 15:17 to Paris

It's important to begin this review by acknowledging the incredible heroism displayed and embodied by Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, and Anthony Sadler. What they did on August 21, 2015, thwarting a terrorist attach on a French passeng...


Review: Playbudz Grip Extenders

Official controllers come in one shape, and one size. Most of us either aren't bothered by the fact, or have learned to work around it over the years. Being in the former camp, I've never really considered the need to help extend the grip o...

Review: Peter Rabbit

Have you ever wanted to watch General Hux at his most detached strangle the life out of a realistic looking bunny while he curses him for driving him to murder? Or maybe you've had a desire to see a weird love triangle between a rabbit, a m...

Review: The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia

The Seven Deadly Sins is one of the most fun anime series in recent memory. An interesting, unique premise with great character design and a bouncy art style and fight choreography are all reasons the series succeeds in both manga and anime...

Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed is the final chapter in a franchise that has been solemnly focused on one thing. No, not the bondage or the S&M, though those do play a crucial role in dressing up (or stripping down) the focal-point of this series...


Review: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory

A little over twenty years ago now, Digimon would hit the scene in the form of a spinoff series of Tamagotchi toys. Following their popularity would come an animated series, the combined success of which sent these digital monsters to new f...


Review: Break Arts II

What's cooler than the ability to pilot your very own mecha? That's easy: The ability to build your very own mecha (as well as pilot it).  Break Arts II, from indie Japanese studio MercuryStudio, takes that hook and runs it in an ...


Review: Octogeddon

George Fan is a wild and crazy guy. Well maybe not in the sense that you're probably thinking, but he has a wild mind that's able to come up with all sorts of strange ideas like an insane neighbor that sells you seeds to fight off a zombie ...


Review: Aegis Defenders

The simple addition of an RTS Use Map Settings (UMS) toggle helped kick off entire genres, including tower defenses and MOBAs. There was a time when the former genre was king, a golden era, if you will. But in recent years it faded into the...
