I would pay big bucks for a Nendoroid of Earthbound's Ness

Unlike some of my fellow writers on Destructoid, I’m not much of a toy collector. I have several Zelda collectibles, some Funko POP! figures, and a few LEGO sets I haven’t bothered to put together, but that’s the extent of...

What if your real-life career was a JRPG job?

On Friday, the highly anticipated Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch finally launched, capping off what has been a long and exhaustive road from reveal to release. The game has a lot going for it, much of which ties it to the JRPGs of ou...

What rides would you put in a Sega theme park?

When the weather is balls-sticking-to-the-side-of-your-leg hot, it can only mean one thing: summer is here. That means trips to the beach, AC running all day and night, the best summer blockbusters, and trips to the many theme parks around ...

Which Overwatch hero should get their own stand-alone game?

This would have been a good weekly Destructoid Discusses topic three weeks ago. Three weeks ago, we were in the throes of the Overwatch second anniversary celebration. Three weeks ago, I was sitting squarely at level 10. Today, I'm lev...

The E3 2018 Dumbstructoid Awards

The world is in need of a new platform mascot

Sonic. Conker. Aero. Gex. Jim. Banjo. Crash. Bubsy. Sparkster. Rocky. Awesome. Going into a game store in the 90s was like going into a zoo where the staff forced animals to go on wild and amazing adventures. Coming of age in the decade was...

Is World 1-1 the greatest first level ever?

A great weight rests on the shoulders of the opening area of a game. Be it a level, a mission, or the first quest in a role-playing adventure, this zone, barring any opening cutscenes, marks the first time players will get to experience the...

Let's talk about games that redeemed their franchise

Until I started writing this week’s Destructoid Discusses piece, I didn’t realize just how many Rayman games there were. Seriously, look at this Wikipedia page. It’s not nearly as bad as Mario, but hell, Ubisoft sure threw...

We need more games set in the Antiquities

I remember the first time I got my hands on God of War. Not the new game -- I'll get to that one in a second -- but the original title back on the PlayStation 2. I was in between housing at the time, one of the most frustrating months ...

What book should be turned into a video game?

On the single shelf in my closet that houses all the novels, games, and movies that aren’t currently tucked away in storage boxes is a particularly thick, purple book. It’s H.G. Wells: Seven Novels, one of those big, colorful cl...
