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...

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

Review: Daemon X Machina

Adequately creating a mecha action game seems like an absolutely daunting task. Years of anime shows like Gundam and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA have enriched our imaginations of what action combat would look like if these ...

Review: Sega Genesis Mini

Review: Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

With Monster Hunter: World last year, the adrenaline-pumping series finally managed to break through for me, and – given what a colossal sales success the game has become for Capcom – plenty of other would-be players. It's not ...

Super Smash Bros. has become 'Video Games: The Video Game'

The announcement that SNK's Terry Bogard is coming to Smash was met with polarized responses. Fans of Himbo's and the King of Fighters series were overjoyed, while fans of not-those-things were somewhat irritated, decrying Terry as just "Ke...

Review: River City Girls

A lot of things blew up big in the late '80s: Bermuda shorts, TMNT, those shirts that changed colour when you got hot, displaying your sweat stains to the world. Also popular, as far as video games were concerned, was the scrolling bea...

Final Fantasy VIII still rules and I don't care who knows it

9/9/99 was a pretty special day. I distinctly remember going to my local EBX (an offshoot of Electronics Boutique, a GameStop division) to not only pick up a Dreamcast, but a copy of Final Fantasy VIII. And the thing is, while a new system ...

Review: Life is Strange 2: Episode 4: Faith

[You can read reviews for past episodes here: Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3.] Sean Diaz is beaten and bloody and beaten and bruised and beaten and broken. If we're chasing alliteration, blind too -- at least partially. The conclusion to E...
