Review: Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet

Before we begin, a bit of background: In preparation to write this review of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, I went over the other SAO game reviews I've written for Destructoid, and it turns out, a common thread runs through all of them: Th...

Review: Metal Gear Survive

I've been playing Metal Gear Survive this past week, and when you take away the (mortal) sins of always-online and microtransactions, which is no small feat, I'm conflicted. I see what the team was going for, it just comes up short and...

Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (2017)

It seems that in recent years there has been an uptick in the amount of manga based stories getting live-action treatments. Some of them good, some not so good, some really bad. So it's no surprise that the show that was voted as the most p...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

Review in Progress: Orwell: Ignorance is Strength

Orwell's first season was an unexpected nail-biter and a personal GOTY on release. It wasn't much to look at, but for all the data input and web browsing, it ended up being a fascinating conspiracy thriller, where the line between surveilla...

Early Access Review: My Time at Portia

In the not-too-distant past of 2016, a little game called Stardew Valley came along to eat up an alarming amount of my free time. Stardew filled the void left by relaxing social and farming sims like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing.&n...

Review: The Fall Part 2: Unbound

The first game in this series, The Fall, was a great sci-fi title with some major flaws which kept the experience from mass appeal. It followed the exploits of an AI named Arid, who was trying to save the life of her human companion. There ...

Review: Retro-Bit NES Power Stick

When I first opened the Power Stick by Retro-Bit, nostalgic memories came flooding back. Images from my childhood of playing games in front of the glow of the television screen in the middle of the night cuddled up under a blanket, and toss...

Review: Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

I still remember seeing the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII 12 years ago. It was beautiful and captivating while also ripe for mockery with its emo-as-hell protagonist. 12 years ago that game was supposed to only be a few...

Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I've played a great deal of role-playing games in my time, whether they be Japanese or Western, from your various Final Fantasy titles to the vast and open world Elder Scrolls games, and all things in-between. As great as these games are, w...

Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...

Review: Rust

There's a fatalistic cycle at the heart of Rust. Every life begins the same. Players spawn on the shores of an uncaring island, naked and ill-equipped to make it through the day. Every life ends the same, too: with the clinical inevitabilit...

Review: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

Age of Empires was a fundamental part of my RTS education. Two years before it I was enjoying the futurist spin of Command & Conquer and the fantasy vibes of Warcraft II, but Age of Empires offered up something else entirely -- a middle...

Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...

Review: Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame is a first for me as a contributor to Destructoid as it’s a title I’ve covered from reveal to release. I was there for its announcement, playing the version developer Mile...

Review: Fe

What little we've known about Fe has seemed cleverly wrapped in enigma, like this forest is hiding mysteries that are just begging to be solved. That's half true. There's something to uncover at nearly every turn in Fe but nothing...

Review: Black Panther

The fact of the matter is you don't see movies like Black Panther made. I'm not talking about the groundbreaking facts you already know about the movie: an almost entirely black cast, with an almost entirely black creative team leading, giv...

Review: Bayonetta (Switch)

Capcom really screwed the pooch when it shut down Clover Studios and lost the creative minds behind Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand. Those are three all-time classics of the 128-bit generation. It’s a shame to lose out on new entri...

Review: Dynasty Warriors 9

Omega Force knows what its fans want when it creates Warriors games. Lord knows tons of outsiders have asked, begged, or pleaded with Koei Tecmo to "try something new," and for the most part we've had the same hack-and-slash foundation...

Review: Space Invaders Extreme (PC)

Almost 10 years ago, Space Invaders Extreme released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable and blew people away. The game was a wild reinvention of one of the most iconic shmups ever made and it somehow transformed a 30-year-old prop...

Review: Mutant Football League

All this talk about “sportsball” on Twitter during the Super Bowl sort of eluded me. Yes, I get it; gamers and geek culture are not generally associated with being sports fans. I can’t even properly say I am one myself. I ...

Review: The 15:17 to Paris

It's important to begin this review by acknowledging the incredible heroism displayed and embodied by Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, and Anthony Sadler. What they did on August 21, 2015, thwarting a terrorist attach on a French passeng...

Review: Playbudz Grip Extenders

Official controllers come in one shape, and one size. Most of us either aren't bothered by the fact, or have learned to work around it over the years. Being in the former camp, I've never really considered the need to help extend the grip o...

Review: The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia

The Seven Deadly Sins is one of the most fun anime series in recent memory. An interesting, unique premise with great character design and a bouncy art style and fight choreography are all reasons the series succeeds in both manga and anime...
