Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...   read

Review: Battlezone

Out of all the PlayStation VR launch games, none was a bigger question mark for me than Battlezone. Maybe I'm underestimating the appreciation and allegiance for this classic arcade property, but ever since hearing about Rebellion's 2016 re...   read

Review: Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity

Usually, when we talk about fan games here on Destructoid, it means Nintendo just shut one down. But not every company is against fans using its properties to create their own games. In fact, some encourage it. Take Team Shanghai Alice. Its...   read

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

Just when I think they're out of ideas, they pull me back in. Skylanders has been one of the most consistent series Activision has been pumping out in recent years. I mean, it has no business clearing that goal in a way, as the entire ...   read

Review: Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel

Souls DLC is a risk by design. The core games are crafted around a multitude of different concepts bound by a cohesive theme that just comes together by the time you reach the finish line. So by adding on extra optional quests months down t...   read

Review: Tumble VR

Calmly building a tower of blocks doesn't make for a thrilling virtual reality concept, but Tumble VR, an expansion of Supermassive's PlayStation 3 puzzler reworked for PS4 with VR in mind, has already found a place in my library. Sometimes...   read

Review: GoNNER

Man, do I love roguelikes and these past few years we've been graced with some of the best games in the genre: Rogue Legacy, Downwell, The Binding of Isaac, and Enter the Gungeon.  Thankfully, there is room on that list for one more.   read

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...   read

Review: Eagle Flight

Ubisoft loves the open world shtick. Loves it. It just can't help itself, and I'm imagining that during every company pitch, Yves Guillemot adds at the end of it "but yes, how can we make it open world?" Yet this time for its foray int...   read

Review: Job Simulator

There was a period where it felt like we, collectively, might be overrun by simulator games. Not the oddly specific but still very much earnest slice-of-life ones like the Euro Truck or Farm Simulator lines -- I've got nothing against eith...   read

Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

I started watching WWE in earnest with this year's WrestleMania. Oh sure, my friends had occasionally convinced me to watch the odd pay-per-view, but WrestleMania 32 got me invested in the product as a whole -- it was so poorly executed, ye...   read

Review: Yomawari: Night Alone

Review: Rock Band Rivals

Ever since the announcement of Rock Band 4, Harmonix has held steady in its assertion that we shouldn't expect Rock Band 5 in a few years' time. Rock Band 4 is a platform now, not a sequel that's meant to lead to yet another seque...   read

Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...   read

Review: 100ft Robot Golf

The best episode of Party Down (tied with every other episode) is “Not On Your Wife Opening Night,” in part because of its pitch-perfect community theater parody. There’s something honorable about the earnest “let&rs...   read
