I'm weirdly pumped for Golf With Your Friends on Switch

Golf With Your Friends is one of those surprisingly popular Steam games you don't often hear about in casual conversation. The 12-player minigolf game has been doing its thing in Early Access since 2016, but now it's gearing up for a full l...

Kevin Mersereau's favorite games from 2019

Twenty-nineteen was a hectic year for me. I’m a 32-year-old full-time college student, and I just wrapped up my first semester at a four-year university, chasing after that ever-elusive bachelor’s degree. Obviously, this impacte...

Review: What the Golf?

What the Golf? is as good as I hoped it'd be, which is to say, "very." I'm honestly relieved! The game takes an otherworldly view of golf, twisting and turning a basic premise in increasingly outlandish ways not unlike something out of Wari...

Review: Everybody's Golf VR

The PlayStation 5 may be looming on the horizon, but that doesn't mean Sony is done supporting PlayStation VR. Even as someone who bought the headset at launch, I'm as surprised as anyone to see new games continue to pop up. The 2019 releas...

May's Games With Gold selection is all over the place

Microsoft has announced the May 2019 line-up for its "Games With Gold" selection and it's all over the place. I understand not every month can be a banger, but this is an exceptionally odd collection of games. Each game is from a different ...

Review: Golf Peaks

Golf is a very deceptive sport. While many people will bemoan how "boring" it is, they're only looking at it from the viewpoint of a spectator. Actually picking up a club and swinging at a ball will show you just how much technique goes i...

Contest: Win a Switch copy of Golf Peaks

Puzzle me this with today's contest for Golf Peaks for Switch. Golf itself is stupid, but I've always enjoyed golf video games. Weird, right? It's like, I can drink as much at home playing virtual golf as I would on a real golf course, for ...

Resort Boss: Golf plays a pretty decent game of golf

Last summer, I sat down with a very early build of a management sim called Boss Golf. Through the developer's own words, it was an attempt to recreate the charm of such titles as Sim Golf and Rollercoaster Tycoon. I found the alpha to be ch...

Everybody's Golf VR should be super chill

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Everybody's Golf last year. Not only did I feel like I was on its wavelength (no one wants to stick with a sports game when they're terrible at it), Everybody's Golf let me play as a blue-skinned, whi...

Review: The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour

While I’ve always been fond of playing shooters, brawlers and action-oriented games, one of the joys of my teenage years was kicking back with Tiger Woods PGA Tour with my best friend. After intense rounds of Unreal Tournament 2004, w...

What the Golf? makes a boring sport better

What the Golf? is by far the shortest appointment I had at PAX West. In the overcrowded Indie Megabooth, where a day earlier I meet former Destructoid editor Hamza for the first time, its quirky demo encourages people to watch the utte...

Review: Arcane Golf

Ah, golf. The sport of stuffy old people who want to stay active but don't want to deal with anything that might make them break a sweat. How can a game take golf and make it into something that will appeal to a wider audience? For starters...

The Golf Club 2019 will feature official PGA Tour endorsement

With EA Sports holding the licensing rights for the PGA Tour, it was impossible for other devs to include PGA endorsement in their games. This lack of attention to detail was a big damper on how authentic a golf game could get, though thing...

Boss Golf has all the charm of the '90s 'Tycoon' games

"Tycoon" style games used to be all the rage in the late ‘90s. After Rollercoaster Tycoon proved the formula was popular, various knock-offs flooded the casual PC market and made it incredibly easy to pick up a tycoon game for your pr...

What the Golf? is everything I love about sports games

What the Golf? bills itself as "the golf game for people who don't play golf." It's spot on. One quick scroll through this gif-filled about page is all you'll need to know if this is your type of silly, experimental take on sports. You can ...

Review: Golf Story

My expectations were a bit skewed going into Golf Story. I heard "golf role-playing game" and painted a picture in my mind of a grand, sweeping, save-the-world story in which problems are resolved (for some reason) with clubs and balls rath...
