Review: The Surge

The first few minutes of The Surge are nothing if not evocative. It begins on a shuttle. Warren, the game's protagonist, sits idly as the car marches forward. He's a gruff, vaguely plain-looking man; the kind of guy whose worn and tired fea...   read

Review: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

With the move back to the second entry in the series, there was bound to be some regression with Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. But the team over at Intelligent Systems managed to give us a little more than just a remake, wit...   read

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...   read

Review: Prey

The heart of Prey isn't in an obvious place. It isn't in its scientific moral quandary or its inky aliens or its ever-escalating plot. It isn't in its retconned 1960s history that serves to justify this research center or in its numero...   read

Sega is planning a 'revival of major IPs' as a new business plan

Capcom has done it, Square Enix has been doing it, and now Sega is getting on board. According to their "Road to 2020" plan (which has some other interesting tidbits if you care to comb it over), Sega is planning a "revival of major IPs" as...   read

You've got character: Reaper

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...   read

Prey's personal touches bring a destroyed space station to life

There's no shortage of danger lurking amid the corridors of Talos 1. The massive space station, which makes up the majority of Prey's environment, is in a state of chaos. Shadowy aliens threaten protagonist Morgan Yu's safety at every turn,...   read

Review: LocoRoco Remastered

Remember the PSP? You know, that system that many of us bought just because it was the easiest way to play classic consoles on the go thanks to being hacked near launch to easily allow homebrew? Did you know it actually had a few good exclu...   read

Review: NieR: Automata - 3C3C1D119440927

Anyone who has spoken with me in the past couple of months would know of my absolute adoration for NieR: Automata. In fact, it’s very likely that I’ve become unhealthily obsessed with it. To say that I regard it to be one of the...   read

Review: STRAFE

My first look at STRAFE was from Destructoid back in 2015. When a successful Kickstarter had funded the game, I became intrigued by a marketing gimmick that centered heavily on "Bleeding Edge Graphics for 1996." I love shooters and 1996 was...   read

With just a few Injustice 2 DLC character slots left, one of them better be Sandman

On Monday, the day every week I unleash these questions on the Destructoid staff, I posited there was no way Ed Boon and Netherrealm would reveal all the DLC characters for Injustice 2. “Surely,” I told myself “surely they...   read

During a live concert, someone's Pikachu costume deflated and they were dragged off stage

An event in South Korea, featuring characters created in Japan, set to the tune of an American made musical -- globalization at its finest (or most masochistic). Songdo, South Korea hosted the Pokemon World Festival this past week, and one ...   read

See the whiptastic first Darksiders III gameplay footage

Following the reveal trailer, IGN has shared 12 minutes of pre-alpha footage from Darksiders III. This is one of those times when the powers that be probably should have waited longer before starting up the marketing cycle. The game isn't ...   read

Ready or Not looks like a bloodier take on the Rainbow Six tactical formula

Developer Void Interactive just loosed the trailer for a SWAT simulator called Ready or Not, which seems to bring back the planning phase-fueled magic of a number of '90s shooters. It boasts eight player co-op or solo play with AI teammates...   read

How much longer will Nintendo support the 3DS?

Nintendo is not giving up on the 3DS. Well, "giving up" isn't the perfect turn of phrase as it's been quite successful over the years, but rather than focus fully on the Switch they chose to just kill off the Wii U instead and keep creating...   read

Review: Birthdays the Beginning

The first time I played Birthdays the Beginning, I didn't put the controller back down for four hours. I was in a trance, totally incapable of wrestling free. The next few nights went similarly: multi-hour sessions ...   read

Street Fighter V is a fantastic game that Capcom is handling all wrong

I was inspired by our own Darren Nakamura yesterday when he spoke to Battleborn's flaws and how Gearbox was doing nothing to fix them. Over the past year I've really enjoyed playing a similarly flawed game, Street Fighter V. It's a fan...   read

Review: Nioh: Dragon of the North

Nioh was a sleeper hit in my household. A lot of folks saw it coming and never lost faith in Team Ninja, but after Ninja Gaiden 3 I was ready for anything. Against my odds they delivered and my faith has been restored, but Nioh's ...   read

Review: TumbleSeed
