Review: Quadrilateral Cowboy

Well, it's finally here. After playing through the brief-yet-amazing Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, the third game has arrived. Don't be fooled, though -- Quadrilateral Cowboy stands alone in what it accomplishes. Not only ...   read

Review: Headlander

Headlander knows what it is but doesn't know what it wants to be. The tutorial gives you a singular impression -- this game is a puzzler with light action elements, à la The Fall (a comparison I was unable to shake, even as...   read

Review: Hawken

Hawken is a game I keep checking back in on. When it originally released back in 2012, it seemed ahead of its time, a free-to-play shooter with AAA production values featuring mech combat. For someone who is both cheap and a mech fan, it wa...   read

Review: Epistory - Typing Chronicles

It's not often a game forces the player to learn a new control scheme. The dual-stick setup of most modern controllers and the WASD keyboard layout are established as as a standard at this point, so a game needs a very good reason to stray ...   read

Review: Gal Gun: Double Peace

I didn't think anyone else at Destructoid would be interested in reviewing Gal*Gun: Double Peace. I've become the defacto niche Japanese game reviewer somehow and this title, with its scantily clad teenage girls you pleasure with your shots...   read

Review: God Eater Resurrection

It's been quite a long time since Bandai Namco first threw its hat into the monster-hunting ring with God Eater, and since then the landscape has changed. Monster Hunter itself moved to the Nintendo 3DS, a whole new generation of conso...   read

Review: I Am Setsuna

Square Enix has put itself in a rather interesting predicament. Given that the company is over 40 years old at this point (if you count Enix), it has a rather sizable fan base that's comprised of people of all age groups. On one hand you ha...   read

Review: Energy Hook

"No combat. No story. Nothing else like it." The trailer for Energy Hook, a high-flying new extreme sports game from the guy behind the beloved web-swinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2, does not lie. I've always been fond of games that priorit...   read

Review: Pokemon Go

Pokémon Go vexes me. It's not a bite-sized version of the iconic handheld games, as it lacks many of the systems you would expect from a Pokémon release. Most of the systems that are present lack any proper tutorial. The game ...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Descent

The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the e...   read

Review: Necropolis

The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game implements multip...   read

Review: Videoball

Normally in a review, I wouldn't want to get too bogged down with discussing minute mechanics like the nitty gritty of what a certain button does, or how one type of attack differs from another. I'd want to concentrate on the bigger picture...   read

I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority of games release...   read

Review: Monster Hunter Generations

It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itself. People obses...   read

Review: 7 Days to Die

For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to news that Telltal...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it wasn't until 20...   read

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...   read

Review: Song of the Deep

Insomniac is constantly re-inventing itself. Starting off as a mascot platformer machine with Spyro, it moved into making a shooter hybrid with Ratchet & Clank, before going full-on FPS with Resistance. Years later the studio went compl...   read

Review: The Battle Cats POP!

Right now on my iPhone, I have roughly 22 free-to-play games. I don't take my 3DS or Vita with me when I leave the house, so whenever I find myself out-and-about with a moment of downtime I always like to grab a few minutes of Tap My Katama...   read

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls
