Review: Kona

A lot has changed since I first previewed Kona. Back then, it was called Kona: Day One, much of the play area was cordoned off, and the survival elements just hung there in the background. But even so, it had something special already in pl...   read

Review: I Am Setsuna (Switch)

Last year, we saw the release of I Am Setsuna for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Much like one of Square Enix's other recent role-playing games, Bravely Default, it was an attempt by the publisher to provide an experience somewhat...   read

'Sorry, my face is tired': Internet clowns on goofy Mass Effect: Andromeda animations

With Mass Effect: Andromeda less than a week away and some tempered preliminary impressions coming in from reviewers (at least with respect to the first few hours of BioWare's anticipated follow-up), one thing that's getting extra attentio...   read

New Reservoir Dogs game is way better than I expected

The easiest time to ignore licensed games is when they're released in step with whatever (typically bad) movie or children's cartoon they're based on. Even when they're based on a good one. Did you know there's a John Wick game? Do you care...   read

The Wild Eight has a long journey ahead in Early Access

The Wild Eight sounds great on paper: an eight-player co-op survival game with narrative-based progression, set against a bleak yet entirely natural landscape. Even in a fairly oversaturated market, it has the potential to set itself apart ...   read

Holy shit this is the coolest way to get around in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

While my Switch-less self is living a Zelda-free existence, seeing things like this gives credence to everyone talking about how cool the new Legend of Zelda is. The climbing mechanic in Breath of the Wild is cool on its own, but being abl...   read

Doctor Fate is an ass-kicking maestro in Injustice 2

I only know Doctor Fate from his brief appearance in the Young Justice cartoon, but I enjoyed playing him during my hands-on with Injustice 2 here at the Game Developers Conference. For a game as dark and gritty as Injustice -- Superman is ...   read

Review: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels ripped from a different era. It’s a bookish game that deals in descriptive text and weighty, philosophical conversations. inExile Entertainment’s latest offering doesn’t dazzle with mind-bl...   read

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...   read

Here's how New Game+/postgame works in Nioh

Nioh is a return to form for Team Ninja. Not only does it preserve the hardcore nature of their roots, hearkening back to their golden age era that peaked with Ninja Gaiden Black, but it also has some modern conveniences built into it....   read

How to identify and deal with Nioh's mimic chests

I've been sleep deprived this past week and I don't see that changing. The cause? Nioh. I can't get enough Nioh. It's Team Ninja's Souls- and Diablo-inspired samurai action game, and it is fantastic. Chris got us rolling with some quick ti...   read

Monster Hunter clone Dauntless seems perfect for players on a budget

For me, there's an important distinction between "budget-friendly" and "a budget game." The former may be a little sanded down or rough around the edges, but is an otherwise solid experience that can be had for a low price (or no price at a...   read

PS4 Pro's new Boost Mode option can mean better performance for older games

We were excited enough to hear that Sony is at long last planning external hard drive support for PlayStation 4 with its impending 4.50 update, but there's another alluring reveal for PS4 Pro owners. The company is beta testing a "Boost Mod...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read

In-game photography makes me feel like a competent cameraman

I’m a terrible photographer. Everyone who knows me has come to accept this fact over the years. My hands are too restless. I can't frame my would-be subjects without getting flustered. Even a simple selfie – my favorite ironic o...   read

Hello Neighbor is a horror game for cowards

When I arrived at TinyBuild's PAX South booth for my Hello Neighbor appointment, hoping to either get a hold of somebody or hop on a station myself, I noticed something that both piqued my interest and got me a little worried: a l...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Sabotage

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was one of the most uneven releases yet from the studio trifecta of Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer, which both worked for and against it. The campaign felt so by-the-numbers in spite of flashes of g...   read

Review: Nefarious

I’ve often wondered what it’s like to be the final boss in a video game. To live those final moments. To have to endure the sheer cheek of some helmeted twit kicking down the barricades to your secret science city. To watch him ...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment manages to differentiate itself quite a bit, here's some gameplay

Yacht Club Games is gearing up for their second free expansion for the original Shovel Knight -- a game that I felt was wholly complete on its own, but is somehow the gift that keeps on giving. Plague Knight was really good, ...   read

It will require a heat action to open the Yakuza 0 Business Edition

I think a little part of me died when I saw John Hardin, Sega's PR manager, smash the box of Yakuza 0 The Business Edition with a hammer. It was hysterical, but all I could think of was how damaged the game would be. You shouldn't damage Ya...   read

The Flame in the Flood's PS4 port is a Southern Gothic treat

I bought The Flame in the Flood when it released on Steam last year. And while I only played for an hour or two, The Molasses Flood’s debut resonated with me thanks to its melancholy vision of a post-societal America. It’s a new...   read

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

One year ago, before 2016 became a hackneyed punchline ("2016? More like 2000-sucks-teen!!!" the peanut gallery offered when Johnny Depp tragically fell into an active volcano while doing the "Mannequin Challenge" on its rim), we had hope. ...   read
