Minit is a charming indie version of Majora's Mask

Minit is like Majora's Mask; Minit is like Groundhog Day; Minit is like Westworld from the robots' perspective; Minit is like that one episode of Supernatural, that one episode of Doctor Who, that one ...


SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...


Hello Neighbor is a horror game for cowards

When I arrived at TinyBuild's PAX South booth for my Hello Neighbor appointment, hoping to either get a hold of somebody or hop on a station myself, I noticed something that both piqued my interest and got me a little worried: a l...


Earthfall is a fun co-op shooter, if a bit familiar

Earthfall by far had the largest setup at PAX South with giant TVs showcasing trailers of the game as well as projecting each of the player's performances for everyone to see. Since I'm overall terrible at first-person shooters, coupled wit...


I thought I was prepared, but Ruiner totally cyberpunk'd me

Do you fancy a challenge? Do you long for the thrill of near-death and the subsequent feeling of satisfaction perfectly accentuated by the sinking rag doll of your enemies? Are you like me? If you are, then you want that challenge. You want...


Trove is the cutesy, blocky MMO kids could get addicted to

I've never been much of an online RPG player, so when I first heard about Trion Worlds' Trove I didn't think I'd be interested. But hearing about it and playing are two completely different things. Standing out among the other offerings aro...


Loot Rascals is endearing and definitely rascally

[Everyone welcome Seymour Duncan into the fold, who is doing a little work for us at PAX South.] Loot Rascals was a tough PAX South booth to find. Slotted back near the tabletop games, I figured I was venturing a tad too far away from ...


PAX South's keynote is brought to you by the letter 'D'

PAX South is merely three weeks away, and the list of panels and exhibitors has been finalized. This is the third year for the newest PAX, which is held annually in San Antonio, Texas. Along with the panels and exhibitors, the keynote speak...

PSA: You can still get tickets to PAX East if you hurry

In the midst of all the excitement about the Nintendo Switch and Red Dead Redemption 2, it was easy to miss PAX East tickets going on sale. This year, PAX East will be on March 10-12, 2017. Tickets are available right now, though we'd advis...

Giveaway - PAX Australia 2016 passes!

So there is this little thing called PAX Australia taking place in Melbourne on Nov. 4 - 6, 2016. Now there also was this awesome cat who worked here named Kyle. Add these two things together and what do you get? I don't know...


The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

PAX this year was a little strange for me. I was brought on to Destructoid just as the deadline to apply for media badges expired, so I went to the show as a regular attendee, and didn't take appointments like Brett and Jordan did. I still ...


Death Squared keeps puzzle teams on their toes

Most modern puzzle games feature one unique mechanic, introducing it plainly at first but building on it over time. Braid had its time manipulation. Portal had its... portals. Death Squared is a little bit different. If there's one idea tyi...


Suda is down for more remasters after The Silver Case

While Grasshopper Manufacture was at PAX West to show off Let it Die and The Silver Case, during an interview with creator Goichi Suda regarding the latter game, I had to ask about the future. What's next for him? For the studio? More often...


Dusk is trying really hard to melt your face off

I'm always really disappointed when folks cite Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods as an influence. For me, the best part of that movie was its meta-narrative; it played with structure and convention of a specific genre to ultimately tel...


PAX West 2016 cosplay breakdown

Every year, PAX draws thousands of game enthusiasts to Seattle, and lots of them decide that the best way to express their affection for a given game is to dress up like one of the characters. Cosplay has really taken off at PAX since it st...


Ubisoft is onto something cool with Steep

While snowboarding games have had a slight resurgence on Steam, the big publishers -- including EA, which sadly doesn't seem interested in doing anything with SSX -- have been sleeping on the genre. As such, Ubisoft's Steep was one of the b...

Hot Take: I like games and have seen some nice ass

Sir Shenanigans

I’ve been really down on Dad of War, largely due to my indifference towards the previous games, but this really grabs my 4/20 might be *lit* for more reason than one!
