Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Friends to the End

It's no small secret that I'm in love with the Shantae series. I was immediately taken in by the magnetic characters, brilliant music and retro adventure action. The WayForward developed franchise marries the gameplay of classic platformers...

Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2017 goes to...

Yoko Taro did it. While the PlayStation 4 had no shortage of remarkable games this year and trying to sort through them to crown a single standout title was conflicting to say the least, Yoko Taro, Platinum Games, and Square Enix were onto ...

Review: L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files

I've made my love for L.A. Noire very clear. Sure it's flawed, and presents itself as an open world game when it's really not, but the character interactions and camp really make it. Team Bondi (and its cast) put in so much effort into ever...

Destructoid's award for Best VR Game of 2017 goes to...

Modern virtual reality, in earnest, kicked off in March of 2016. It's hard to believe that it's nearly been two years, but so far the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR have made their own unique impact on the industry. Although...

I played Soulcalibur VI and here are my humble thoughts

This weekend, I had the good fortune to be in attendance at Namco Bandai's LEVEL UP Winter event, transporting me from cold, soggy Nottingham to cold, soggy Paris. Held at Le Huit Valois convention centre, writers, journalists, professional...

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2017 goes to...

"Good things come to those who wait" is a saying that gets said sometimes. It's supposed to extol the virtue of patience, as though it isn't always best to enthusiastically leap toward everything. That's probably true! It's important to be ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Switch Game of 2017

What a year that was, right? Some bad stuff happened, but at least the games were good! Nintendo had a crazy first nine months for its new console, and the Switch has gone on to sell 10 million units despite having a "slow" start at launch....

Review: Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis

So far, Final Fantasy XV has had a mix of mediocre to positive updates. Nothing has been outright bad, and the myriad free quality-of-life updates are appreciated, but the individual story campaigns have been lacking. Gladio and Prompt...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2017

I've been a PC fan for a long time. My first shooter was Catacomb 3-D, and my first OS was DOS. And all this time, I've seen the phrases "PC gaming is dying," or "PC gaming is dead" just about every year. Yet time and time again it rises up...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2017

For as much promise as the technology has, mobile gaming is pretty goddamn stagnant. The medium is rife with apps meant to test your patience more than your skills and goad you into opening your wallet for a shot at a little more. It’...

I took gamer pills for a month and felt nothing

I've done a lot of dumb things for this job. I jumped off the top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas once. Last week, I rode on top of a tank. I've taken to actively seeking out ridiculous scenarios because those are more fun to write about. ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2017

What a weird year for Xbox, right? The past 12 months were filled with a lot of incredible games, and a bunch of them came to Xbox. But, there's no tiptoeing around the fact that hardly any of them came exclusively to Xbox, which is al...

This has been a great year for video games in general, and a particularly excellent year for Sony as a platform holder. Keeping up with notable PlayStation 4 releases throughout 2017 was no small feat thanks in large part to Japan. Even now...

Recap: Everything that happened at The Game Awards 2017

The Game Awards 2017 may have stretched on far too long, with too many ads, and the show's pacing still wasn't where it needs to be, but you know what? I had an okay time. I'm seeing improvement. Zelda: Breath of the Wild took game of the y...
