Review: Call of Duty: Mobile

With the launch of Apple Arcade, I've been having a few regrets about being the frugal man that I am who always springs for the cheapest possible option. On my iPad, I'm constantly deleting old games to make way for the new. It's frustratin...

Review: Indivisible

It's here. It's actually, finally, here. After a seat-of-the-pants crowdfunding campaign, an unfortunate delay, and four tireless years of development, Lab Zero Games, who brought us the incredible 2012 fighter Skullgirls, is ready to relea...

Review: Concrete Genie

Although big studios tend to boast about their so-called "AAA" projects the most, a number of them have a stable of impressive, smaller-scale developers under their wing that bring the indie heat. Microsoft signed Moon Studios for Ori and t...

PlayStation 5 officially launches Holiday 2020

PlayStation's Jim Ryan has officially announced that the next console in the PlayStation lineage, PlayStation 5, will launch in the holiday period of 2020. This news was announced by the President and CEO of the iconic video game brand in a...

Review: Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair lays it all out in the title. This is another game that stars Yooka and Laylee, sure -- that much is obvious. But, more crucially, attention should fixate on the Impossible Lair, the endgame challen...

Review: Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

[Garden of Salvation impressions] Destiny 2 keeps on rollin'. Through thick and thin Bungie is determined to make this franchise work, even amid rocky starts for both major iterations. They've clawed their way out of the trenches, batt...

Review: Magic: The Gathering Arena

The first time I touched a Magic card was 1996, and within moments I was entranced. The idea of building decks (made easier when groups of friends donated a ton of cards to a cube) was something completely foreign to me, like choosing party...

Review: Mario Kart Tour

Last year, when Nintendo first announced it would be taking Mario Kart to mobile, I was legitimately excited about the prospect. Sure, its output at the time wasn't an endless stream of home runs, but there was always the possibility i...

Dragon Quest XI on Switch earns the Definitive in its title

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (DQXI) was one of my favorite titles from last year, a gorgeous throwback to earlier games in the long-running RPG franchise. That said, the version we got here in the West was somewhat compromised ...

Review: Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX

In case you forgot, Inti Creates made their name crafting Mega Man Zero: one of the most celebrated subseries in the history of Mega Man. Platformers are in the studio's DNA, so when Inti announced the spiritual successor to the ZX ser...

Review: The Surge 2

Liquid sugar: that's pretty much Surge in a nutshell (or a can!). Somehow, someway, 21% of your daily carbohydrate value is fulfilled with just one (okay, rather big 16 ounce) serving size, and with 69 milligrams of caffeine, you'll be...

Review: Contra: Rogue Corps

There are Contra games I still play annually to this day — and I'm not just referring to the original. I really have to give a ton of credit to Shattered Soldier and Neo Contra, the two (these days, low key) PS2 entries, for layi...

15 years later, Half-Life 2 gets an update

For some odd reason, Valve issued an update for Half-Life 2, Episode One, and Episode Two yesterday. Fixing really minor bugs (apparently, the NPCs would sometimes not blink), I'm more just shocked that Half-Life 2 even needed an update. Th...

Review in Progress: Code Vein

If it wasn't obvious enough yet, it's worth saying right now: Code Vein is like Dark Souls. It's cliché to try to compare From Software's landmark series to anything these days, but the shoe fits in this case. It fits so we...

Review: Frogger in Toy Town

One of the most appealing facets of Apple Arcade is the idea that I can try before I buy. I know a lot of games these days come with demos, but usually those are extremely limited in how much you'll be able to see of the final product. With...

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening had a profound impact on me growing up. Although I was already familiar with more traditional JRPGs like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy at that point (and had played the first two Zelda games), Lin...

Destructoid's top 10 Nintendo 3DS games (Part 2)

Writing a "Top 10 Best 3DS Games" post, in a way, is like writing an obituary for a console. We talk about how long it's been around, the big successes it had in life, and the loved ones it leaves behind. In the case of a gaming device, the...

Dead Cells is still selling 'incredibly well' in 2019

For a game so willing to crush you at a moment's notice, Dead Cells is a surprisingly feel-good story. Whether you first got into Motion Twin's roguelite action-platformer in 2017 with the Steam Early Access version, or you started playing ...
