Heading to PC next week is XCOM 2, the much-anticipated sequel to 2012's turn-based tactical strategy game. If you haven't tried Enemy Unknown yet, Humble Bundle has the game in its latest Firaxis bundle in the pay-what-you-want tier. The b...

 
 
 
 

The WoW Killer...

This always happens on the sequel or expansion of any loved product, the inevitable bad review claiming how a product had ruined the franchise. I won't go to the extent of claiming that the entire Warcraft franchise has been ruined by WoW:...

 
 
 
 

What a PC Snob thinks of a Console Gamer...

There seems to be so much animosity or paranoia form console gamers as seen in this Jim Sterling special: http://www.destructoid.com/battlefield-3-won-t-look-as-good-on-ps3-dice-says-duh--203987.phtml?s=100#comments So I decided to clea...

Duke Nukem Forever : Hail or Fail?

How to Build a PC! 2011 Style Part 3

I Think It's Time For Me To End PC Gaming...='(

It's a sad day. I feel ashamed. There are two reasons why I probably must stop PC gaming. 1 "I don't actually have a PC, I have a laptop" 2 "I just don't have enough money" This problem arose when I bought Brink on PC and when I install...

 
 
 
 

Diablo II Hardcore is still addicting after 10+ years

It has been a very, very long time since I've last had a chance to write a blog on Destructoid, so I find it only fitting that I reemerge writing about something that I haven't had a chance to play in many years and have recently rediscov...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Games I'd like to see remade: Syndicate

The exciting sets my Heart Flickering!

Why TF2 has endured for so long in the PC era.

First Impressions: Section 8 Prejudice (PC)

Section 8: Prejudice is a game I feel will probably be overlooked. With bigger releases around the release of S8P, it will probably go ignored. To me, this is quite a shame. I canít say that Iím sort of Section 8 super fan. I never playe...
