Review: Octopath Traveler

When people say "Square doesn't make old-school RPGs anymore" I can't understand it. We might have been lucky to get two Bravely Defaults, but they've been investing in other projects for years like Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Although th...

It's time for another Viva Pinata

Last week, I got to thinking about Viva Piñata after seeing its name pop up on a list of games that use Xbox One's new FastStart feature to let you download and start playing up to twice as fast as before. "I never want to not be pla...

Review: Sonic Mania Plus

[image credit: Tyler McGrath] Sonic is back. Okay well he had a trademark misstep with Forces, but the charm of Sonic Mania and its subsequent cartoon are undeniable: enough to muster an appreciation that will cleanse the world of the ...

Review: Skyscraper

I'm not sure why, but I was kind of thinking that Skyscraper would be something special. Not like, "good" special, but just some sort of low-key, fun action flick that riffed a bit on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. I mean, it ...

Cygames has conquered mobile: Now it's coming for consoles

Cygames had a rather unassuming booth at this year's E3. Actually, "booth" would be the wrong word to describe it. It was a cubicle, hidden in plain sight with the other cubicles that filled the concourse of the Los Angeles Convention Cente...

Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

I laid my feelings out about the Ant-Man films and their importance to the Marvel cinematic universe yesterday so I won't dive too deeply into that again, but suffice to say Ant-Man is a bit of an odd duck in the MCU, and it's all the ...

Ant-Man movies are the most important films in the MCU

We all know that Marvel has done something special with their cinematic universe. Well, not just special, groundbreaking. They invented the cinematic universe, and despite being the first people to do one of these things they're also the be...

Review: The Crew 2

The Crew was an acquired taste. If you put in the time to max out your favorite cars with the best gear and you stuck around long enough for the updates and expansions, it was a gem of a game. Real comfort food. But, most people I know neve...

Review: Lumines Remastered

I was a late bloomer when it came to Lumines. Unbeknownst to me I skipped over that whole step and moved on to Q Entertainment's next hit -- Meteos. So when everything came full circle years later, I was ready to embrace its greatness. Afte...

Review: Mario Tennis Aces

One of the reasons the Nintendo GameCube is my absolute favorite home console to date is that was when Mario sports titles absolutely exploded. The N64 brought us Mario Tennis and Golf, but it was on the next system where we ...

And Destructoid's E3 2018 Game of the Show is...

E3 2018 has been over a week now and that has given us ample time to recuperate, organize our thoughts, and reflect. We saw a lot of great games at the biggest video game convention of the year. We named 10 of those as nominees for Destruct...

Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

One of the amazing things about the original Jurassic Park is its ability to create wonder. No matter how many times I watch it, the reveal of the dinosaurs at the beginning of that movie is awe inspiring. I get goosebumps every t...

Dying Light 2 makes me regret sleeping on the first game

I'm in a real weird place with Dying Light. I had always intended to get Techland's parkour zombie survival game out of my backlog at some point, but its lackluster story has kept it permanently frozen on my to-play list. Now that I've come...

Mutant Year Zero kicked my ass at E3

“This game will not go easy on you.” That was my warning moments before starting up the E3 demo for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. When Brett booked this appointment for me, my mind read it as Mutant Football League so, g...

World War Z pits players against 500-zombie swarms

We've all killed a lot of zombies. They're video game fodder. Entry-level enemies. Shambling corpses with no discernible traits other than an unfortunate pallor and a penchant for human flesh. Zombies suck. Licensed games also tend to suck....

Review: Jurassic World Evolution

First, you build the park and hire staff, then you begin expeditions in search of fossils and mosquitoes trapped in amber. Then comes creating new life from something long dead millions of years ago, all while ignoring the opinions of someo...

Resident Evil 2 nearly made me s#!t my pants

Capcom has a tight set-up in the South Hall of E3. The entrance to its demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake is a miniature recreation of the Raccoon City police station, redesigned as a short haunted house to provide a brief bit of...

I just finished Sonic Mania’s Encore As someone that really enjoys the base game, the expansion Even at a paltry $5 it doesnt feel like it adds enough value to be worth the Mighty and Ray are a joy to use,
