Risk of Rain's PS4 port is just what I was hoping for

It's only fitting that right as an exciting new roguelike enters my life and rekindles my interest in the genre, an old favorite comes calling. Lately, Risk of Rain has been eating up evenings that would otherwise be wasted on failed Enter ...   read

Question

What was the last game to surprise you?

I did not doubt that Enter the Gungeon would be good, but given my current roguelike fatigue, I had mentally committed it to being something I'd "get around to eventually." For me, that could have meant playing tomorrow, or four months from...   read

Nab Enter the Gungeon for $10 as its launch discount continues

At the top of the sales chart this week on Steam and elsewhere is Dodge Roll's bullet-hell dungeon-crawler Enter the Gungeon. The game has received an overwhelmingly favorable reception on Steam so far with 93 percent positive user reviews ...   read

Binding of Isaac updates and a Bumbo tease

I'm both excited and terrified for Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+. I mean, more Isaac is always a good thing, but I'm STILL trying to collect all of the items and secrets that were included in the vanilla Afterbirth expansion. Creator Edmund ...   read

Enter the Gungeon has a cute animated trailer

Enter the Gungeon is a title I've been keeping an eye on. Any game that name checks Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne is going to pique my interest, but Gungeon has enough of its own style to step out of the shadow of its inspirations and...   read

I've seen Below twice now, and I still have no idea what to expect

Maybe my Bad Journalist seams are showing a bit here, but I cannot pin down exactly what I think Below is. When I saw it at PAX East in 2014, it looked Dark Souls-esque in both combat style and its unforgiving nature. Despite writing a...   read

Capybara Games' Below drops in this summer

Below was one of my most anticipated games last year, but it was delayed into 2016 at the last moment. We won't have to wait for it much longer though, as Capy's new roguelike adventure will be coming this summer to Xbox One and PC. The new...   read

Strafe might be the Spelunky of first-person shooters

One look at Strafe and its influences are obvious. The first-person shooter looks like a lot of first-person shooters. Quake, Doom, and Half-Life are a few titles that developer Pixel Titans grew up revering. Game director Thom Gl...   read

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...   read

Bandai Namco to publish Dark Souls-like Necropolis

Once upon a time, you could be playing Necropolis on March 17 -- just next month -- when it came to Steam. Those days are over now as Bandai Namco has jumped in to publish the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the four-player (drop-in, drop-out...   read

Apple rejects The Binding of Isaac for depicting child abuse

Create your own '80s anime adventure in Starr Mazer

Very Quick Tips: Darkest Dungeon

Darkest Dungeon is a terrifically difficult game that delights in torturing the player. You could spend hours fine tuning the perfect party only to encounter a new enemy type or area that absolutely demolishes them. It's a nasty game that c...   read

Review: Darkest Dungeon

Most games gloss right over the psychological effects of combat and stress. RPGs see parties of cheery young adventurers slaughter their way through entire countrysides worth of kobolds and giant rats for the sake of justice and good. Natha...   read

Downwell is falling onto Android devices today

We all seem to love mobile rogue-lite Downwell here at Destructoid, what with it getting both a 10/10 score in Steven’s review and winning our mobile game of the year award. It’s just a shame that up to now it’s been an iO...   read

Want to hear the narrator for Darkest Dungeon say 'Dankest Dungeon?'

I've been playing a lot of Darkest Dungeon, and it's been a tense experience. It's a merciless game about horror, stress, and the frailty of humanity. A great deal of the grim tone is established by the grave intonations of its dour narrato...   read

Review: Nuclear Throne

Nuclear Throne is not a game for people who get frustrated easily. My first few hours spent with this top-down shooter from Super Crate Box and Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer didn't go well. I struggled with aiming and, as a result, ...   read

Nethack, a roguelike from 1987, just had its first update in 12 years

Review: Renowned Explorers: International Society

I'm glad I stuck Renowned Explorers out. For the first couple hours it was kind of a slog. Not exactly bad, but dense, unwieldy, and unexciting. I would finish an expedition and quit, not wanting to get back to it until days later, forcing ...   read
