Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

If I didn’t know better and wasn’t aware that the timelines don’t quite add up, I’d say the subtext around the release of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone feels aggressive, even adversarial....   read

The makers of Poncho have some words of wisdom for indie developers

Poncho, the cute little indie puzzle platformer, has been out for well over a year. Did you play it? I didn’t, and apparently, I’m not alone in that. Despite being released on Steam, the PS4 and Wii U, the game was not successfu...   read

CJ names games from 2016 that he made dicks in

2016 was a master class in game design

Game mechanics have always come first for me. I love looking at how a game works at a base level and tinkering with what is there. I'm very curious as to what the limitations are, always looking for a way to "cheat" mechanics or use them to...   read

Heroes of the Storm adopts MOBA-standard 'armor' system, doubles down on ranked play

Heroes of the Storm isn't as popular as DOTA 2 or League of Legends, and there's a lot of potential reasons for that. For one, Blizzard was really late into the game, jumping into the fray years after League of Legends had already...   read

ShadeOfLight's personal picks for GOTY 2016

I am a gamer with a particular set of tastes, and by now I'd wager that most of you know what those tastes are. I can almost predict what my games of the year will before the new year has even started (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wil...   read

Stephen Turner's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

Once again, I played entirely too many games in 2016. If you count mobile titles and everything I reviewed, well over a hundred. I don't know for sure, I didn't keep track because it's been one of the busiest and most stressful years of my ...   read

2016 recap: The ten most popular posts on Destructoid this year

I've spent four years writing for Destructoid, so you'd think I'd have figured this shit out by now. I haven't. It's in our best interest for every article to do a lot of traffic, but I rarely know when that's going to happen. It's a l...   read

Final Fantasy XV Kingsglaive bonus feature is all about Ultros

Ultros is the ultimate asshole of the Final Fantasy franchise -- he puts any given crotchety Cid to shame, and could troll anyone in the FF universe. But in any given game you usually get the chance to kick his ass, or in this case, watch h...   read

Nick Valdez's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

I took so many Ls in 2016, folks. I lost a couple of jobs, I moved back in with my parents after living on my own (across the country) for two years, we lost so many icons, and there's a good chance I'll be half of Master Blaster when the w...   read

Ray Porreca's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 was a wild year. Humanity got a raw deal over the last twelve months. Cool people died. Actual idiots got elected into office. Cigarette prices went up. I still can’t buy beer at a gas station in Pennsylvania.  Basically, th...   read

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

It's been a pretty grim year for many people, but all things considered, it's been great if all you care about is games and anime! Thank goodness, then, that we're on a website primarily concerned with those things, which means I don't have...   read

Astroneer is a minimalist No Man's Sky

I first played Astroneer at PAX West earlier this year, and it caught my attention immediately. It's near impossible to describe without mentioning No Man's Sky (NMS), as they're both procedurally generated games that revolve arou...   read

The Super Mario movie is releasing on Blu-ray again, this time with a cool case

25 reasons you need the 75-cent Doge game Montaro

Montaro is not a very good game, but had it been released in 1988 it would have been game of the year. Now, before you say this would be true of every disgusting game you own, Montaro is so simplistic that it could have been made on 1988-er...   read

The Assassin's Creed movie is perfectly fine if you already like Assassin's Creed

"I'm an aggressive person," Cal Lynch, Assassin's Creed's protagonist, explains maybe a half-hour into the movie. This is a bold understatement. Cal had been on death row just before Abstergo whisked him away to their science facility. Alth...   read
