Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

You've got character: Vega (SFIV)

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...

Video game mashups to brighten up your day

I am fond of a video game mashup or two, so I was stoked when I heard 2 Mello (the composer for 2064: Read Only Memories) was releasing a Streets of Rage mashup album this week. When it came out on Tuesday, I downloaded it right away for li...

The tragic history of the videogame turkey

[From our Destructoid Golden Archives, here's a Chad Concelmo classic from this day in Dtoid, 2009] The other day I was driving down the street, when a large feather from a rusty white truck transporting turkeys blew into my Jeep window. Af...

With Session, one studio aims to reinvent skateboarding games

For years, skateboarding thrived in the shadows. It was a sport defined by alleyways and scraped knees pioneered by punks and self-described weirdos. Before the X-Games and multimillion-dollar sponsorship deals, skateboarding was a secret r...

Why we should celebrate extra options in games

Right – let me start this article by exposing my biases. Namely, one of the first games I played to the point of obsession was The Sims, and as everyone knows, The Sims is a highly modular game. Since the very beginning, the Sims seri...

Do Japanese games actually have a shot at The Game Awards?

For most of the games announced yesterday, the 2017 Game Awards have been a long time coming. From the moment The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hit the Switch, we knew it was a contender. Same goes for Super Mario Odyssey and the...

Overwatch's Moira isn't as OP as they'd have you believe

Overwatch's 26th hero Moira was revealed at Blizzcon last week, and she's been available on the PC's Public Test Realm (PTR) since Monday. I've been trying the vampiric biomancer out since then, and I'll expand on her abilities below.

The 'Stranger Things' in my game collection

There are some seriously weird games out there – this is what you quickly learn when you start collecting them, even with a focus on specific consoles. There's always at least one or two developers, big or small, that like to take ser...

X-Men Legends is still the greatest Marvel video game

Growing up, watching X-Men was a must for me. As the little porker I was, shunning daylight and exercise for the warm glow of my television set, I never missed an episode. I watched every damn adventure. All 76 of them, even the shitty...

What are your experiences with arcade gaming?

Like roughly 90% of the rest of the world, I spent the days leading up to Halloween watching the second season of Stranger Things, which takes place in 1984. Nintendo didn't hit North America until 1985, so kids like the Stranger Thing...
