Review: Pit People

I really admire The Behemoth. The studio has found success time and time again without resorting to sequels, charting a varied course from Alien Hominid to Castle Crashers to BattleBlock Theater. The team's latest, Pit People, lives in yet ...


Chrono Trigger has come to Steam, but it looks off

A cherished game like Chrono Trigger appearing on Steam should be a clear cause for celebration, yet once again, fans are torn. Today's PC version isn't how you remember the SNES classic. "If you've had the pleasure of playing Chrono Trigge...


Ghost of a Tale leaves Early Access in two weeks

Recent talk of Moss put the medieval mouse adventure Ghost of a Tale back on my mind and left me wondering when the game would see a full release. It appeared on Steam Early Access in July 2016 only to slip off my radar not long after. Than...

Review: Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet

Before we begin, a bit of background: In preparation to write this review of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, I went over the other SAO game reviews I've written for Destructoid, and it turns out, a common thread runs through all of them: Th...


The DLC for Final Fantasy XV will carry in 2019

At this rate, I'm starting to feel like Final Fantasy XV will outlive us all. The post-release episodes centered on Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis were really just the beginning for 2016's ever-expanding RPG adventure. Square Enix has alread...

Monster Hunter: World slays the Japanese charts yet again

Capcom bagged a big 'un. Monster Hunter: World has kept a hold of the Japanese market, finishing as the most-sold game for the past week as reported by Media Create. For the week of February 12 through February 18, Monster Hunter: Worl...


Defender's Quest is just as easy to love on consoles

It might look unassuming at first glance, but Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is not so secretly one of the best tower defense titles in recent years. It's way up there. The game tells a fairly compelling story, it's mechanically ...


Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I've played a great deal of role-playing games in my time, whether they be Japanese or Western, from your various Final Fantasy titles to the vast and open world Elder Scrolls games, and all things in-between. As great as these games are, w...


Darkest Dungeon to terrorize Xbox One owners this month

After launching two years ago for Windows and Mac, Darkest Dungeon has slowly made its way to other systems including the PlayStation 4, Vita, iPad and Switch just a month ago. Left out of the fun has been Xbox One, but that changes at the ...


Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...


Review in Progress: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

When Kingdom Come: Deliverance is at its best, I'm lost in the most detailed forest I've ever seen in a video game, low on food, drinking alcohol for nourishment, all so I can reach the next town to sell my wares...because the last town hat...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2's big New Game+ patch has been delayed

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was all set to get a massive patch, one that would add a welcomed-but-at-the-same-time-insane-because-wow-this-game-is-packed New Game+ mode -- but it's just been delayed. Nintendo announced the delay on Twitter, and ...


How to play as Street Fighter's Ryu in Monster Hunter: World

Don't be alarmed if you start seeing Street Fighter's Ryu running around in Monster Hunter: World. Capcom added a crossover quest today that lets you play as the big-footed "Martial Artist in White." You can find the quest by heading up to...


Virtuos is handling the Switch port of Dark Souls: Remastered

Every so often I remember that we're getting a remaster of Dark Souls in May and I just have to smile. In the case of the Nintendo Switch version, it's come to light (courtesy of the Australian Classification Board) that Virtuos is handling...


The Bug Fables demo took me 17 years to the past

Crowdfunded games are a gamble. We’ve seen the likes of Mighty No. 9 go from extreme anticipation to an underwhelming launch. We've even seen games that fail to release altogether. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for ...


Kingdom Come: Deliverance PC deals up to 20% off

  Sitting pretty in the #1 top-selling slot on Steam is the newly-released open-world action RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance. As a new IP in an otherwise uncrowded Q1 release period, the game looks to be faring well in the user review de...
