Pokemon's single-player battles are aging poorly

I’ve grown increasingly exhausted of Pokémon with each generation, despite feeling the games are improving overall. From Gold through Pearl, I had unyielding optimism to "catch ‘em all" and excessively grind my team up fo...

The Yakuza team could make a pretty rad Chibi-Robo game

After Star Fox Zero flopped, I feared that Nintendo was going to leave the beloved space shooter series in the dust. So when I saw that Star Fox would have a major cameo in Ubisoft's Starlink, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a far cr...

MMOs would benefit from more playable furries

Ever since I started blogging on Destructoid, I’ve not bothered to keep it a secret that I’m part of the furry fandom. I mean, yeah, it’s weird to say I like pretending to be a giant moth man with extraneous kaiju-like fea...

The DC Extended Universe needs to die

I remember back in 2013 when Man of Steel came out. It was meant to be the big return of the Blue Boyscout to theatres after 2006's groan-worthy Superman Returns. After its release, people were split on whether or not Man of Steel was a goo...

It's time to pray for Chibi-Robo

[This piece was originally published in 2015. In light of recent rumors about the next Nintendo Direct and an ensuing eyebrow-raising tweet from Nintendo of America today, it just felt right to revive it. -Jordan] Chibi-Robo is a refugee fr...

Kevin Mersereau's Top Five Games of 2017

It’s officially the year 2018 and not a whole lot has changed so far. I’m still a bald, broke, and excessively sweaty college student with an unhealthy obsession for video games. Luckily, that means I actually took the time to p...

Christmas games that aren't Christmas games

Quite shamefully, I only saw Die Hard for the first time two years ago, in December and in a packed movie theatre. It was only then that I could fully appreciate the classic argument that rages about the film. No, not whether Hans Gruber is...

Persona might have the formula for the perfect X-Men game

X-Men has been one of Marvel's biggest properties for a long time, and not just in comic books. Before the days of the MCU, Marvel actually seemed to enjoy putting X-Men on a pedestal. The mutant team had a character almost everyone could r...

Opinion: Vivendi needs to stop

Before I get started on my long-winded tangent down below, let me go over the basic events that inspired it. Vivendi is currently trying to decide if a Ubisoft takeover is even worth it. I've always assumed, like most sane individuals, that...

Falling in and out of love with E3

Let's take a few minutes to talk about the most horrible thing that's happened to anyone ever. Like, ever-ever. A snail bit my uncle's wiener off, and even that wasn't as horrible as the worst thing that's ever happened to me. But before I ...

My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...

Breath of the Wild is both a masterpiece and a disaster

[Header courtesy of EternaLegend] Basically everyone and their mother agrees that Breath of the Wild is an incredible game. At the same time, everyone and their mother hates Breath of the Wild. How is that possible? This is something I&rsqu...

Palmer Luckey did not start with nothing

There are two Palmer Luckeys. I went back to read profiles of the now-24-year-old $700 millionaire who founded Oculus and became otherwordly-wealthy after reneging on keeping his company independent when Facebook came knocking with $2 billi...

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

Are you spoiling Dark Souls III for yourself?

The last few days have been agony for me. After it got out that it was possible to download the Japanese version of Dark Souls III with English subtitles and menus, seemingly every YouTuber and streamer in the world has made it their missio...

Oculus has bungled the launch of the Rift

[Update: Oculus sent out an update today clarifying what is going on and confirming the delay has been caused by an unexpected component shortage. Oculus is also footing the bill for shipping. "We know you're anxious to receive your Oculus ...

Bad choices don't make you a bad person

[This article contains spoilers for Firewatch] Let me preface this admission of guilt with a disclaimer: cheating on a romantic partner is the worst. If the relationship continues, you or your partner will never look at each other quite the...
