Ape Out will put a smile on your face in these dark times

When I say that Ape Out is a fun little game, I'm not being insulting. The first couple months of 2017 have smothered players with boundless open world games like Nier: Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Ghost Recon ...

Wander the cheery world of Yonder

Probably the most cheerful game I played all PAX (maybe of all time?) is Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles -- a bright, happy Harvest Moon meets Windwaker style game that goes beyond traditional farming simulatio...

Snake Pass is a relaxing, legless take on 3D platformers

It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around Snake Pass. The 3D platformer seems to have all the trappings of a golden era Rare joint. From enchanting environments, right down to a duo of goofy-looking animal heroes, almost every part of...

Lose your sight and possibly your mind in Perception

There’s something unsettling about not being able to fully grasp your surroundings, especially when you’re playing a survival horror game. Perception is a game that throws the player into shaky visual ground, mixes in ...

Sine Mora EX will feature a co-op mode and new challenges

While I didn't sit down to actually try out Sine Mora EX, I did get a chance to chat with one of the developers at the THQ Nordic booth today. Since I am a big fan of the original, I was curious what changes were being made to designate thi...

Sundered was definitely a game I played at PAX East

Before my time with Sundered, I knew little to nothing about the company, Thunder Lotus Games, or its newest title. It had previously released Jotun on Steam and this new game is looking to tackle the well-worn metroidvania style of action ...

PAX East 2017: Destructoid's panels and parties planning post

With a fresh coat of white stuff on the ground, and a bevy of new games on display, the feeling is just right in jolly old New England for the annual Penny Arcade Expo East. This year, we have our young, talented writers running around the ...

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 ...

One of the most timeless aspects of VideoGames are their From Mario, MM, FF, CV and beyond, soundtracks set the atmosphere of games far before graphics caught Its a shame then that so few of us know the names of these great
