Yep, I'm addicted to Hyrule Warriors all over again on Switch

Nearly four years. That's how long Hyrule Warriors has been out, and very few people have probably 100%-ed it. I don't blame them! While the core loop is fun and the roster is on point, upgrading every single hero and villain and obtaining ...

Magic: The Gathering Arena closed beta impressions

Magic: The Gathering means a lot of different things to different people. For some, it's a highly competitive game where the meta has to be followed and the sideboard is always ready. For others, it's a casual kitchen table game to play whe...

DUSK's Episode Three is shaping up nicely

Sometimes the best way to get an exclusive is to simply ask. While Destructoid isn’t lacking for content about New Blood’s upcoming FPS throwback DUSK, I was curious how the upcoming Episode Three was shaping up. Turns out I jus...

Overlooked indie games from the PAX show floor

I didn’t spend my entire weekend at PAX doing business. In between a few appointments, I got the time to catch up with an old friend and walk around the show floor from a more casual perspective. Without giving away that I was ther...

Off Grid makes you hack like a middle-aged dad

Watch Dogs 2 was a pretty good representation of the hacking community that has grown over the years, but it did have one big flaw. These supposed nobodies were running around with near superhuman bullet resistance and blowing shit up with ...

I got a distinct gothic vibe from Dark Devotion's PAX demo

I hate feeding into the stereotype of press comparing things to Dark Souls. When giving Dark Devotion a shot at PAX this weekend, I couldn’t really think of what else to call this at first glance. There is a stamina meter that gove...

Create the gun of your dreams in Mothergunship

In the indie games scene, procedural generation and rogue-like elements seem to be the golden formula one strives for. I can’t tell you how many games I’ve heard about with those two buzzwords attached, but Mothergunship is just...

SCUM makes me realize how scary real life is

While I pride myself on being open to new things, one of the few styles of gaming I’m just not a fan of is the burgeoning survival genre. These games aren’t similar to how some might associate "survival" in gaming (Resident Ev...

I kind of miss old Assassin's Creed

As I make my way through Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered, I can't help but notice how Assassin's Creed Origins has already rewired my brain. I keep trying to crouch like an extra sneaky assassin, but that button doesn't exist. I fin...

I wish Gekido: Kintaro's Revenge played as good as it looks

When classic-style sprite-based graphics came back into fashion a few years ago, a lot of people called it a retro revival. Truth is, good old dot art never really went away. Polygons may have largely taken over during the PS1 and PS2 eras,...
