Do Japanese games actually have a shot at The Game Awards?

For most of the games announced yesterday, the 2017 Game Awards have been a long time coming. From the moment The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hit the Switch, we knew it was a contender. Same goes for Super Mario Odyssey and the...

Should EA make another console Simpsons game?

At the beginning of each year, for the last two years or so, I've searched the web and Wikipedia looking for upcoming game anniversaries the Destructoid staff could write articles about and maybe inspire some great discussion. This year's l...

Opinion: Mario Party is bad

This one is tough to write. It sort of feels like a veil has been pulled back for me. After all these years I can finally say the words out loud, Mario Party is a bad video game. Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty of fun with it over the y...

So what's up with the ending to Miitopia?

The 3DS’s days may be numbered, but the plucky little handheld isn’t ready to call it quits just yet. Today it’s seeing the release of two new first-party games in Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. Both are cute, late-in-the-game ...

Dragonball: Evolution is one of the best-worst movies ever

It’s no secret that faithfully adapting any kind of property is a tall order. Adaptations often result in atrocious products, born from disinterested creators and corporate interests looking to make some quick bank. However, on the su...

10 characters who need to be in Dragon Ball FighterZ

I've been constantly thinking about Dragon Ball FighterZ ever since its E3 reveal. Arc System Works has found the perfect property to show off their engine, and I'm hoping it's going to be a great experience for Dragon Ball and fighting gam...

The Nintendo Switch could be what the Apple TV should be

I don't know about you, but I'm still coming down from the high of the Nintendo Switch unveiling. Sure, we'd all be guessing and suggesting since halfway through the Wii U lifespan its next device would be a handheld/console hybrid, a ...

If VR is the future, I'm stuck in the past

Not too long ago, Oculus Rift founder and guy with a cartoon rabbit's name Palmer Luckey sent out a tweet sharing his excitement for the future of VR: This came at the end of a couple tweets where Luckey told people not to worry about bad ...

Opinion: Why Overwatch lost my interest

It’s somewhat of a cliché at this point for a critic (or an aspiring one) to go out of their way to point out the flaws of a popular and nearly universally-loved entertainment product, or to proclaim disinterest in it months af...

The winners and losers of E3, according to me, Jed Whitaker

E3 2016 having come and gone feels like a distant memory at this point, but that won't stop me from making a list of who I thought the winners and losers of the show were. Somehow, I think some of you will disagree, and that is fine by me. ...

Leveling systems scare the crap out of me

I have a few friends who play The Division. Every once in a while, I'll ask them if they're playing it. Yeah, they'll say. I'll ask if it's gotten fun yet. Nah, they'll say. I'll ask them if they're gonna stop playing. "Maybe," they say. "M...

Why don't you like Metroid Prime: Federation Force still?

What would your Silent Hill look like?

My Silent Hill would be a place you couldn't trust. Doors would disappear behind you the moment you turned your back, hallways and staircases would loop back in impossible ways, main streets would abruptly end or lead to a part of the city ...
