Slowly but surely, Limbo is turning into a Commodore 64 game

When I think of Limbo, I mostly still think of its opening areas and the danger lurking in its shadowy aesthetic. Spikes, bear traps, that terrifying giant spider... there's a lot of potential for gruesome deaths. Naturally, all of that wou...

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2017 goes to...

"Good things come to those who wait" is a saying that gets said sometimes. It's supposed to extol the virtue of patience, as though it isn't always best to enthusiastically leap toward everything. That's probably true! It's important to be ...

Why did The End is Nigh on Switch keep all the f-bombs?
