An unlikely pairing has given birth to Plague Road

The child of Eternity's Child


Do any of you readers remember the wonderfully mustached Conrad Zimmerman? Did you know he is currently working on a video game called Plague Road with Luc Bernard, an outspoken indie developer who has history with Destructoid? Luc Bernard was the man behind Eternity’s Child, a game that Conrad gave a 1 out of 10.

That event led to one of the more infamous moments of backlash for our site. Lots of people were expecting the game to be a gigantic hit and it looked spellbinding in screenshots. We were even represented in-game as Mr. Destructoid was a character. When it came time for the review, however, things weren't so peachy.

Destructoid's most wanted games of 2017

What to expect when you're expecting


A year ago, we were looking forward to some games. And how did they turn out? Well... But I'm sure that this year is going to be totally different! Everything is going to work out. Nothing will be delayed, or disappointing. No one's going to die. Nuclear war? As if! We're not going to die at all. All the games will be good. It's going to be awesome.

These are the games Destructoid can't wait to definitely play in 2017, the year that we are all going to live through, totally successfully, without so much as a speed bump on our way to Good-times-ville.

The price of the Nintendo Switch, and all its innards, is too damn high

$70 Pro Controller? Get out of the Mushroom Kingdom!


Amidst all of the hype of the Nintendo Switch presentation, let's break one thing down -- this thing is going to be one of the priciest Nintendo consoles yet if you actually look at what everything costs. Now, $300 for the console itself isn't awful on its own. A lot of you actually said you'd pay "no more" than that so it seems like the Big N hit that sweet spot there.

But if you want everything else, including online play, break out your wallet.

Destructoid's best of CES 2017

What happens in Vegas


For 50 years, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has shown off innovations and inventions, demonstrating how technology can be harnessed to improve our lives or just make things a little more fun. I got to check out the show on behalf of Destructoid this year to see what we can look forward to in gaming tech. 

CES isn't like some of the other conventions you might be familiar with, like E3 or PAX. Instead of focusing on gaming, anything electronic is fair game, from drones and 360-degree cameras to 3D printers and e-cigarettes. As a result, CES is enormous, completely engulfing the Las Vegas Convention Center and taking over the Venetian and Westgate hotels as well. It's way too big for one person to cover, but I did manage to see a lot on the show floor. In no particular order, here are the four coolest game related things I saw at CES this year. Each of the winners was given one of the handsome plaques you can see in the header image.

Pixie's favorite gaming memories of 2016

It's not Takumi


Given I finally jumped on the 8th gen bandwagon late in October 2016, I couldn't fairly say I've played each game released in 2016 to completion. For one thing, when I get a new PlayStation console, playing the latest Metal Gear Solid game is top priority and then after fixating on a game like that amidst a few 40+ hour weeks at work, I get really scatterbrained and indecisive. I'm not sure what to play next.

I tried a little Witcher here, some FFXV or Fallout 4 there and then I bought Overwatch on a PSN sale and all got pushed to the side. Things were easier when I just had a 3DS and a Vita. Portable games hold their value, while everything on consoles and PC plummets in price weeks after release, so I went a little crazy on buying stuff.

But there are still the memories. The little events that have or will stand out from games I got in 2016, so let's go with those. Ranking stuff is stressful.
