Review: Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2017

I've been a PC fan for a long time. My first shooter was Catacomb 3-D, and my first OS was DOS. And all this time, I've seen the phrases "PC gaming is dying," or "PC gaming is dead" just about every year. Yet time and time again it rises up...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2017

For as much promise as the technology has, mobile gaming is pretty goddamn stagnant. The medium is rife with apps meant to test your patience more than your skills and goad you into opening your wallet for a shot at a little more. It’...

I took gamer pills for a month and felt nothing

I've done a lot of dumb things for this job. I jumped off the top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas once. Last week, I rode on top of a tank. I've taken to actively seeking out ridiculous scenarios because those are more fun to write about. ...

Recap: Everything that happened at The Game Awards 2017

The Game Awards 2017 may have stretched on far too long, with too many ads, and the show's pacing still wasn't where it needs to be, but you know what? I had an okay time. I'm seeing improvement. Zelda: Breath of the Wild took game of the y...

Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem. We've been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they're going to acquiesce, but they don't, at least not fully, and then in a ye...
