Bringing a Guardian down into Gerudo Desert was a good idea

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...   read

Nintendo just dropped a bunch of 3DS and Switch dates on us

I went into today's Nintendo Direct thinking it would highlight Arms, Splatoon 2, and maybe even a few small news nuggets. The presentation did cover that ground as promised, but it also went over a ton of release dates for upcoming Ninten...   read

Destructoid's top 10 Wii U games (Part 1)

There are those who will say the Wii U never stood a chance. With its confusing name, poor marketing, and the lack of a blockbuster Nintendo-developed title at launch, it stood no chance of being the success is forbearer was. That’s w...   read

Very Quick Tips: Yooka-Laylee

Yooka-Laylee delivers on pretty much everything that it promised. It's a throwback Nintendo 64-era mascot platformer with a gazillion collectibles. It feels like a relic in 2017, a product of video game design that the medium has mostl...   read

The original Bayonetta gets a stealth release today on Steam

Bayonetta was a fantastic action game. So fantastic that it's on quite a few "all time great action genre" lists. But at launch, it was a little problematic on consoles at times, especially on PS3. Along with the limited Wii U re-relea...   read

11 bit coined the term 'society survival' to describe its new game Frostpunk

11 bit is the team that's most well-known for This War of Mine, a depressing game about trying to survive as a civilian in a war-torn city. Last time we talked to the developer, it tried to distance its next game, Frostpunk, from This War o...   read

Review: Snake Pass

Locomotion is something that far too many video games take for granted. Standard fare for movement is often reduced to holding an analog stick in a direction and you'll get where you need to be. This approach is so ingrained in game design ...   read

EVE producer: 'An EVE Online 2.0 wouldn't make any sense'

It's been roughly five months since EVE Online went free-to-play, and developer CCP seems to be pretty happy about how it's went so far -- at least on the surface. "We were super nervous, both internally and externally in terms of our playe...   read

Overwatch's Uprising event should be a good one

Ahead of a planned full reveal and release tomorrow, a trailer for the next Overwatch event inadvertently popped up today. Aside from lots of alluring and surely bank-breaking new skins (check the gallery!), the update will bring a mode not...   read

Duke Nukem's Bulletstorm tour is a big failure

When it was announced back in 2010 that Gearbox would acquire and finish Duke Nukem Forever, people let out a sigh of relief. Gearbox had a great track record of excellent first-person shooter games and had recently released Borderlands to ...   read

Review: The Sexy Brutale

In just under five minutes with The Sexy Brutale, I watched a man die. He was gunned down; left slumped and lifeless next to a stone altar, all before the murder weapon's echo faded. There was nothing I could do except watch the grisly scen...   read

New mythical Pokemon coming to Sun/Moon

When I picked up Pokémon Moon back in November, I swore to myself that it was going to be the Pokémon game that would finally turn me into a diehard fan. Here we are nearly five months later and I've racked up approx...   read

So let's talk about Hainly Abrams from Mass Effect: Andromeda

Usually, when looking over my Dtoid emails, I'm content to watch the main staff do their thing. This includes controversial topics that I must later brace myself to help moderate alongside the rest of the community team, so it's rare that I...   read

"Smash clone" is an ugly generalization. It's usually given to titles in a subgenre which, honestly, should be a lot more prominent than it is. Despite many tries, non-Nintendo developers have yet to nail the platform fighter. What most of ...   read

Review: Yooka-Laylee

There are a lot of bad mascot platformers out there, but you'll have to pry them from my cold, dead hands. Many a night, both as a youth and an adult, were spent scouring cartoony countrysides looking for that one last musical note I n...   read

Agents of Mayhem tightens up the Saints Row formula with its own cast of lunatics

"I am private property, please step away." The high-pitched voice is emitting from a speaker lodged in a saucer-eyed, cartoon squid mascot for a fast-food sushi joint in Seoul, Korea. I am playing as Daisy, a roller derby skater with rockab...   read

CJ takes a long drag on his cigarette, slowly letting the smoke fill his already weakened lungs. He glances down at his whiskey sour, nearly empty. Exhaling with a small cough, he stirs the one remaining ice cube with his middle finger befo...   read
