Redesign time! Later this year we're giving Destructoid a fresh coat of paint. You know the drill, we do this every few years as web and mobile technologies change so quickly.  UX and UI improvements aside, we're also doing a little ba...


Review: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is proving to be a divisive game. During my review-in-progress, I said that I fell in the middle of the pack: somewhere between the folks who find Rare's shared-world pirate adventure dreadfully boring and those who feel it's...

Review: Pacific Rim: Uprising

The original Pacific Rim was an absurd, goofy and dumb action movie about robots punching monsters in the face. Despite this ridiculous premise, the movie turned out to be a cut-above your standard blockbuster trash. The spectacle of huge m...


Review: Detective Pikachu

When I first saw the concept for Detective Pikachu, I was in. Although the idea of a talking Pikachu who solves crimes with a young boy named Tim raised some eyebrows I dug the Sherlock look on the ol' rat, and since many Pokemon have talke...


Vivendi is selling all of its shares in Ubisoft

Vivendi has had its eyes on Ubisoft for years now, buying more and more shares, but that takeover-in-the-making story comes to a close today -- and not in the way many of us were expecting. Ubisoft and Vivendi have reached an exit agreement...


Review: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Ni No Kuni did not mess around. Near the very start of its narrative, the plucky young Oliver has just witnessed the death of his mother after suffering a near death experience himself. While some of you may equate the Level-5 and Ghibli pr...


Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs

Assassin's Creed has spent more than a decade flirting with post-release content concepts that are out-there enough to sell. There was an alternate timeline where George Washington was an evil tyrant. There was a whole add-on that revo...


WTF is Destructoid? Today we celebrate 12 years of madness

Gather 'round Papa Niero, it's that time of year to tell our best story: The story of how Destructoid came to be as a video game community. Most of you already know the story, so please humor us as we enlighten the new people just rece...

Review: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is one of video games’s biggest icons. Even those not familiar with the wonky original 3D titles or the recently rebooted series know who Croft is, even if they can’t recognize her, or tell you what she’s lik...


Final Fantasy XV's PC port is straight up impressive

Final Fantasy XV's PC version was delayed to make it the best PC version it could be. If you've been playing games on PC for long enough, you've heard this song and dance before. Square Enix has had a good track record recently with their P...


Review: Burnout Paradise Remastered

Burnout Paradise: it's the racing game that every publisher, including EA with its countless Need for Speed iterations, has tried to emulate since 2008. It's such a simple thing, drop players into a rich sandbox and let them have at it...


Review: Kirby Star Allies

I had to do a double-take once I realized we haven't had a mainstream console Kirby in seven years. Seven years! It almost seemed like Nintendo was ready to plop the little fluff ball onto portables permanently, and given that the Swit...


The prose of Pyre's consequences

I can’t look at the night sky and not think of Pyre. Stars are a fundamental part of the game’s narrative. Not only do they guide your way, they act as a sign of hope. The cosmos lights many paths forward, and in Pyre, looking u...


Final Fantasy VII Remake team hiring for 'core members'

Ah Final Fantasy VII Remake. That thing you know will probably eventually come out, but might be delayed years on end. Square Enix is knee-deep in development still, and a recent listing for new "core members" of the team implies that there...

SXSW Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of the ...


The Destructoid Jumbo Game Music Playlist!

Looking for a new Spotify playlist to have on in the background while you work/play games/polish your duelling swords? The writers at Destructoid have a wonderful present for you! Don't worry, it's 100% free, with no strings (or teeth, or s...


Review: Fear Effect Sedna

Gaming's most unlikable protagonists are back. Yes, Hana, Rain, Deke, and Glas have returned from an extended hiatus to wreak havoc and steal stuff in their own inimitable way. Lock and load folks because, some 17 years later, Fear Effect i...
