Review: Rise & Shine

Have you ever fallen head over heals for someone extremely beautiful only to find out that what is at their very core is just not good, and may even be downright bad? It gives me no pleasure to say that is how I feel about Rise & Shine,...   read

Resident Evil 7's trying to trick you into its cannibal-filled home

An inviting home is not always a home you want to be invited to. Maybe the design is spot-on -- an open concept and "Live, Laugh, Love" scrawled on the wall -- and that sounds pretty nice. But, the owners of that modern chic house, they wa...   read

You won't need to go undercover to see this Lego City Undercover trailer

Struggling to come up with a headline, you say? Why, I never! I totally had a pun lined up for this article, but then I realized that the title of Lego City Undercover hasn't changed from the Wii U version, so I had no clue how to word my p...   read

Rocket League hits one billion games played in just under two years

Rocket League references are just about everywhere at this point -- it's creeped its way into pop culture, and isn't going anywhere. And a recent stat from developer Psyonix (which I still confuse with Psygnosis, RIP) backs that up -- ...   read

Phil Spencer apologizes for Scalebound's cancellation, but he shouldn't have to

Super Mega Baseball 2 makes me feel like a kid playing Slugfest

I've never been a huge sports gamer. I was in real-life Little League and played high school football, but I just couldn't get into digital sports. That changed when I went to my friend Travis's house when I was 14, and he showed me MLB Slu...   read

January 19 is a big day for Battleborn

I'll admit: I've slowed down on Battleborn lately. I still think it's a great game that got a raw deal, but after 200 hours and a Platinum Trophy, I was ready to take a break. It was in my New Year's resolution to play more short games...   read

Glitching out of bounds in Final Fantasy XV takes you to unused areas

Did you ever use the tank or dodo plane in Grand Theft Auto 3 to fly to the ghost town that was used in the opening cutscene? How about glitching out of any map in Halo 2 and exploring? Much like the latter case, a player has foun...   read

You and your mateys will have to be thick as thieves to excel at Sea of Thieves

Pirating isn't a one-man operation. It requires a whole crew of like-minded scallywags all working together. A lone wolf isn't an efficient pirate; that's just an idiot waiting to get pirated. Sea of Thieves developer Rare points out ...   read

Fight for something in For Honor's beta at the end of January

It's not hard to figure out your motivation in For Honor. It's eponymous, it's right there in the name. You fight for honor, a prize of the spirit that transcends anything material. Honor isn't easy to attain, though. It's one of those cov...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2016 turn out?
