Review: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Ni No Kuni did not mess around. Near the very start of its narrative, the plucky young Oliver has just witnessed the death of his mother after suffering a near death experience himself. While some of you may equate the Level-5 and Ghibli pr...


Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs

Assassin's Creed has spent more than a decade flirting with post-release content concepts that are out-there enough to sell. There was an alternate timeline where George Washington was an evil tyrant. There was a whole add-on that revo...


WTF is Destructoid? Today we celebrate 12 years of madness

Gather 'round Papa Niero, it's that time of year to tell our best story: The story of how Destructoid came to be as a video game community. Most of you already know the story, so please humor us as we enlighten the new people just rece...

Review: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is one of video games’s biggest icons. Even those not familiar with the wonky original 3D titles or the recently rebooted series know who Croft is, even if they can’t recognize her, or tell you what she’s lik...


Final Fantasy XV's PC port is straight up impressive

Final Fantasy XV's PC version was delayed to make it the best PC version it could be. If you've been playing games on PC for long enough, you've heard this song and dance before. Square Enix has had a good track record recently with their P...


Review: Burnout Paradise Remastered

Burnout Paradise: it's the racing game that every publisher, including EA with its countless Need for Speed iterations, has tried to emulate since 2008. It's such a simple thing, drop players into a rich sandbox and let them have at it...


Review: Kirby Star Allies

I had to do a double-take once I realized we haven't had a mainstream console Kirby in seven years. Seven years! It almost seemed like Nintendo was ready to plop the little fluff ball onto portables permanently, and given that the Swit...


The prose of Pyre's consequences

I can’t look at the night sky and not think of Pyre. Stars are a fundamental part of the game’s narrative. Not only do they guide your way, they act as a sign of hope. The cosmos lights many paths forward, and in Pyre, looking u...


Final Fantasy VII Remake team hiring for 'core members'

Ah Final Fantasy VII Remake. That thing you know will probably eventually come out, but might be delayed years on end. Square Enix is knee-deep in development still, and a recent listing for new "core members" of the team implies that there...

SXSW Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of the ...


The Destructoid Jumbo Game Music Playlist!

Looking for a new Spotify playlist to have on in the background while you work/play games/polish your duelling swords? The writers at Destructoid have a wonderful present for you! Don't worry, it's 100% free, with no strings (or teeth, or s...


Review: Fear Effect Sedna

Gaming's most unlikable protagonists are back. Yes, Hana, Rain, Deke, and Glas have returned from an extended hiatus to wreak havoc and steal stuff in their own inimitable way. Lock and load folks because, some 17 years later, Fear Effect i...

Review: Death Wish

I don't know how Death Wish's release wasn't delayed. It is quite possibly the most ill-timed release in the history of cinema. A gun-toting vigilante mows down "bad guys" in Chicago with gags about the ease of getting a fire arm, torture p...


The next Battlefield reportedly returns to World War II

The most mainstream shooters have shied away from the futuristic in recent years and returned to the historic. Last year's Call of Duty revisited World War II. The last Battlefield interestingly tackled World War I. Now, it seems ...


The next Overwatch hero is Torbjorn's daughter Brigitte

Midway through Blizzard's teases for the 27th hero in Overwatch, people got it in their heads that the new character had to be Torbjörn's daughter. Despite some skepticism that it might all just be a ruse, those folks were right! Brigi...


Review: Moss

For a few all-too-brief hours, I felt like I had a precious little pet mouse. That's the magic of Moss. The PlayStation VR action-adventure game cleverly imagines you as a towering "reader," a sort of benevolent apparition that protects a y...


Review: Fable Fortune

Poor Fable. Leaving aside Peter Molyneux's tendency to promise way more than his teams are able to deliver, the first two games were well-received by critics and players alike. But then Fable III happened. And then Fable Heroes happened.And...

Not sure how the view is in the southern hemisphere, but in the north you can look west at sunset and very clearly see Mercury is a bit up and to the (You cant see it in this picture)

Rad Party God

Path of Fire sure takes a lot of Metroidvania conventions to the way you progress through Elona, theres bunch of closed off areas until you get the proper mount to traverse it, be it by jumping over a chasm, steep cliffs or literal walled off

Double Monocles

I tried R6 Sieges outbreak Its a pretty good concept, but limited as Id play a game built around it, with more variety in weapons, maps, and enemies, and the ability to have people join your game after one guy DCs half way through


Welp, I gave Eureka a solid week in FF Its Gimme back the old relic At least then I could multitask and level up other classes or get tomestones/savage clears in while working on Eurekas just a waste of time with shit gear


Question: is there any good games out there that mix roguelike/lite elements with JRPG? Was thinking about how could it would be a game with a Chrono Trigger-like battle system (fast, lots of fun, no need to grind) with randomized dungeons and


So apparently theres a 1 in 27,000 or something chance a meteor will hit the earth in I dont like those need better odds of it hitting and sooner because the way the world seems to be going maybe imminent doom could do some

CaimDark Reloaded

Sea of Thieves is really getting a Day 1 I love


Calling it now: the butchers dog in KCD is the best character of 2018 (Please avoid telling me in the comments if he dies)


I long for the good old days


Unholy fusion of chili and It was alright
