Dead or Alive Xtreme is coming to PC

DMM Games, ever heard of them? Before this morning, neither did I. Apparently it's a Japanese game publisher that focuses on browser games. Some of its titles are published in English at Nutaku.com, another website I'd never heard of until ...   read

Retro X: Arcade

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible

Bless 'em for trying, but the retro inspired mini-games 20th Century Fox cooked up to promote X-Men: Apocalypse are pretty damn terrible. Tenuously tied to the film as a throwback to the '80s when the movie is set, Retro X: Arcade is a set ...   read

It's surprisingly difficult to guess wikiHow articles based on header images

In principle, wikiHow is a great resource. Everyday people can use it to learn new skills. We can educate ourselves on basic ideas without the embarrassment of publicly admitting we don't already know them. In practice, it makes for some we...   read

Nintendo pulls plug on fan-made Zelda browser game

Remember that voxel Zelda browser game we told you about? The fan-made tribute crafted without Nintendo's permission? The one all the game websites were talking about? Surely you know where I'm going with this, right? It took just a couple ...   read

Sega's April Fools' joke is a playable Big the Cat browser game

Sega has been aggressively marketing with their "weird" and "that's so random!" angle for the past year, but this time I'm actually on board with it. For April Fools', they've released a Big the Cat game called Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3...   read

Cookie Clicker wants back in your life

Sorry about this. A new version of Cookie Clicker launched today with a revamped ascension system, quality-of-life improvements, and a cookie dragon, among many other additions. I'm telling you about it because I am a bad man. But really, s...   read

Whip up a sweet wallpaper with Mario Maker

Nintendo has a cool little web app that lets you create wallpapers for your phone or computer, Mario Maker style. It's only in Japanese, for now, but I'm confident you'll be able to find your way around. This tool isn't nearly as extensive ...   read

Google browser game honors Wilbur Scoville

Google has a cute little game today honoring the American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. Scoville, born on this day in 1865, came up with a heat scale for peppers. It eventually lead to what is referred to as the "Scoville scale," and is ...   read

That 8-bit Odin Sphere game is definitely happening

Recently, Atlus asked fans to tweet out in support of an 8-bit version of Odin Sphere, and it immediately had over 20,000 people respond to the call. It's no surprise then that it took less than a week to hit its 28,888 tweet goal, and the ...   read

Tom Clancy's EndWar Online closed beta starts today, runs through November

I had forgotten about Tom Clancy's EndWar Online. It was originally announced just about two years ago, took on some alpha playtesters, and went dark to everybody else. Today, it is coming out of alpha and into a closed beta phase. Ubisoft ...   read

We can't stop playing the hilarious multiplayer web game Agar.io

What're we up to in the Destructoid office today? Agar.io. It's a free web game in which you are a blob trying to absorb other blobs so that you can become the biggest, baddest blob around. Hey, that sounds like Osmos! But here's the twist:...   read

Flash game portal Newgrounds turns 20 years old today

These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (probably too much) i...   read

Terry Cavanagh's new game takes on scummy advertising

First off, I recognize the irony in posting this on a website that gets most of its income from advertisements. Terry Cavanagh, best known for the punishingly difficult VVVVVV and Super Hexagon, has a new browser game out with biting critic...   read

Extrasolar's mobile interface got a slick update

Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any further into why...   read

Platinum's 404 page is a cute little Bayonetta demake

Instead of displaying a simple file-not-found message, the 404 page on Platinum Games' website holds a score-attack demake of Bayonetta. It's worth a moment of your day. The game is simplistic -- you jump and shoot at oncoming angels -- but...   read

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, gear, and exper...   read

Upgrade Complete 3mium pokes fun at awful free-to-play games
