Salt and Sanctuary is shaping up nicely on Vita

When I reviewed Salt and Sanctuary earlier this year on PlayStation 4, I found it to be a more-than-competent side-scrolling take on From Software's Souls series. I played the majority of it in co-op and had a great time with its intricate ...

The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

PAX this year was a little strange for me. I was brought on to Destructoid just as the deadline to apply for media badges expired, so I went to the show as a regular attendee, and didn't take appointments like Brett and Jordan did. I still ...

Toon Zelda is a g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-girl

I was a bit surprised yesterday when Nintendo announced the next set of DLC for Hyrule Warriors had dropped. I knew it was coming, I just didn't expect it to come that day. Rumors pointed to Toon Zelda being the next new character for ...

Hands-on with Armello's Usurpers Hero Pack

Moments before breathing his last breath, my grand peppers said to me, "Jed, there is nothing in this world that is free and one day you'll realize that your time is what is valuable." He was right. I've let him down by wasting so much o...

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goals in mind for t...

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...

Raw Data made me feel like Will Smith in I, Robot

Robots are sentient and coming at you and your co-op partner from every direction. You must work together to kill them all with a plethora of guns and a badass sword that can reflect projectiles. No, it isn't I, Robot 2: Bad Boys, it's Raw ...

I got my dick destroyed in Outlast 2

The original Outlast had a nice combination of jump scares and actual horror; someone would pop out and scare you, before giving chase as you ran away and hid from them. You'd hear footsteps, breathing, and see enemies stand inches awa...

Doom's multiplayer is good, but it could be great

I was completely disinterested in the upcoming Doom reboot until that trailer came out showcasing some of the new modes, at which point I got hyped. Over the weekend, I finally got to get some time with multiplayer beta on the Xbox One...
