Destructoid's top 10 Nintendo 3DS games (Part 2)

Writing a "Top 10 Best 3DS Games" post, in a way, is like writing an obituary for a console. We talk about how long it's been around, the big successes it had in life, and the loved ones it leaves behind. In the case of a gaming device, the...

The casualties of WoW Classic's battle for authenticity

The year is 2019. The Amazon is on fire (the one with the trees), Disney owns Spider-Man, and World of Warcraft is coming out again. Well, not exactly. When vanilla WoW launched, Martha Stewart was convicted of a felony, Facebook had just l...

The Not-So-Wonderful Games of Oz

MGM's The Wizard of Oz should have been a disaster. After the release and subsequent success of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the studio sought its own potential hit film to be adapted from a children's book. In 1938, ...

What's the 'best' worst game of all time?

Bad games have been a blight upon the world for as long as video games have been around. Most likely, they always will be. From broken or bland design to poor technical execution, there are many ways a potentially good game can go bad and a...

The Igavanias, ranked

Unless it was made by just one person, it's a bad idea to give all the credit for a game's success or failure to a single individual. Koji Igarashi has produced many of the best games in the Castlevania series, but he's far from the only re...

Lethal League Blaze excites the competitive casual in me

Like a deconstruction of a shonen protagonist, I admire the spirit of competition, but I'm much more of a casual than a hardcore player. I get a thrill from trying to climb up leaderboards and learning new things about the online versus gam...

What is your favorite Final Fantasy combat system?

The Final Fantasy VII remake is a perfect example of Square Enix’s core design philosophy when it comes to combat systems -- which is to say, there isn’t much of one. Sure, the series has its roots in “traditional” R...

What DLC do you wish was a new game instead?

One of my most anticipated releases in 2019 is not a new game, but a DLC expansion to Hollow Knight. As a part of its Kickstarter stretch goals, the acclaimed bug-em-up Metroidvania’s developers planned to create a side adventure star...

The west needs a Ganbare Goemon/Mystical Ninja collection

It wasn’t long after I had described Konami as collection adverse that it hit us with a trio of pretty awesome compilations. The Arcade, Castlevania, and Contra collection are all stacked with solid games. It’s actually an impre...

Trials of Mana was E3's most magical surprise

Everyone tunes into E3 with a list of wishes because there are few feelings as exciting as that wish coming true. Setting one’s expectations that high is unrealistic, but I personally don’t believe it’s healthy to set your...

What do you want to see revealed at E3 2019?

The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo is once again upon us and this year is shaping up to be a strange one. First and foremost, Sony isn't showing up. Even though it has what is arguably the biggest game of the year set for release this...

I may have found the cure for spoilers

[Editor's Note: One thing that has been made quite evident over the past several weeks is Hollywood has no problem weaponizing the audience's fear of spoilers to their advantage. The urgency to avoid all spoilers and see Avengers: Endg...
