Review: Capcom Arcade Stadium

Review: Persona 5 Strikers

Omega Force, as a studio, has carved out a nice little niche for itself. Well, some wouldn't say it's nice! "Repetitive," is the word some might use. But despite their reputation for similar-looking beat 'em ups, hardcore Omega Force fans k...

Review: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

Super Mario 3D World holds a special place in my heart for several reasons; but chiefly, it was the first game I covered as the head of reviews at Destructoid. That was nearly eight years ago. As I stated with many, many words, it quickly c...

Review: Dead Cells: Fatal Falls

It only took a single (unsuccessful) stab at Dead Cells for me to get back in the swing of things and boy does this game still feel fantastic. Its sense of ferocity and flow is up there with the best of 'em. I didn't just boot up Dead Cells...
