Sleep Tight may be the next indie darling on Switch

It’s a thought we’ve all had at least once in our lives. When the lights go out, our bedrooms transform from the sanctuary of play and imagination into a frightening, pitch-black void where anything and everything is coming to g...

Moonlighter makes working retail seem fun

I spent eleven years in retail. During that time, I worked at a major electronics store and a small independent skate shop. Though the companies couldn't have been more different, the overall experience was the same. Retail sucks. Virtually...

Video - Gran Turismo Sport beta impressions

Hey guys, I'm launching a new show for Destructoid's YouTube channel! Using a name I've been kicking around since my old blogging days on Screwattack, DEMOlition will be a series where I take a first look at demos and betas of upcoming game...

Flynn: Son of Crimson is as cathartic as they come

You know the feeling of popping bubble wrap? Stepping on an extra crunchy leaf in the fall? I've found that certain mechanics in games are comparable to those small tangible pleasures in life. Wall jumping in Super Metroid, flattening goomb...

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the Marvel vs. Capcom we deserve

One of the more prominent reactions from the online community when Dragon Ball FighterZ was first announced was that the anticipation for it seemed to eclipse the already announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The more cynica...

Ship It takes Tetris to another dimension

If there's a pantheon of gaming, surely Tetris is the god of puzzle games. The satisfying feeling when you manage to clear a row needs no translation, and the Russian export has been played on every continent of the earth. The simple c...

Children of Morta will be one to watch in 2018

You might remember Patrick covering Children of Morta just over a year ago. He previewed the "narrative-driven" hack-and-slash game about a family of guardians fending off the spread of monsters and corruption to their mountain, noting it h...

Celeste is the next pure platformer to keep an eye on

Platforming has been around for so long, it's ingrained in us as a basic skill. It's like walking or breathing. We just do it. It's such a basic skill, many games these days use it as the vehicle to get to where they really want to go. Puzz...

Runner 3 trades Bit.Trip for a rocketship

Hard as it may be to believe, the Bit.Trip series has been around since 2009. The franchise got its start on the Wii, and developers Choice Provisions have had a close relationship with Nintendo since the studio's inception. Runner 3&n...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

The Evil Within 2 feels like a more well-rounded game

I thought The Evil Within 2 had a strong first showing at E3. The imagery in the reveal trailer woke me the hell up (remember, Bethesda's presser was on a Sunday night), and I'm always down for contorted monstrosities in my spooky video gam...

Monster Hunter: World will be the one that gets me

My history with the Monster Hunter series is painfully, regretfully abrupt. I attempted to get into it years ago, on PlayStation Portable, but bounced off so hard that I can't even confidently say which installment I tried. That experience ...

Wattam is almost too cute for words

Wattam, the new project from Katmari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi, is really coming into its own. The last time I went hands-on with it, I described it as "more toy than game," but noted that it was infectiously joyful a...

The Crew 2 is shaping up to be my open-world racer of choice

Ubisoft's latest showing for The Crew 2 was a lot like its last, but I'm not complaining. This weekend, I got another crack at the racer's open-world antics. Morphing between a car, plane, and boat in real time without losing momentum conti...

Its not exactly The thousand nations of the Persian Empire descent upon you but sometimes you have throw the kitchen sink to kill a god! 698 soldiers and one demon-pact-bound peasant might have been an overkill,
