Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2018

Last year, our PlayStation 4 Game of the Year nominee list was dominated by Japanese games including Nioh, NieR, and Persona 5. This year, it's not so one-sided. God of War and Spider-Man are heavy hitters, and for a lot of people, it'll bo...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Switch Game of 2018

The phrase/meme "perfect for Switch" was invented last year but really became a thing in 2018. The Switch is an unstoppable force, swaying developers left and right, from indie studios to AAA publishers. Nintendo completely turned this...

Review: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In many ways, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U was already an "all-star" outing. Sure it wasn't 100% complete but given that the vast majority of fighting games never reach that bar, it was an acceptable loss. Nintendo ambitiously delivered ...

My eyes are all melty and I'm dying to dig into Smash Ultimate, but let's take a moment to recap the major video game news from The Game Awards 2018. There were some genuinely surprising moments. For instance: a new Marvel Ultimate Alliance...

Review: Darksiders III

Darksiders has always felt like it belonged on the fringe. The whole "edgy Zelda" mask it wears so fondly was a major turnoff for some, but I bought right into it. Maybe it was Mark Hamill's devilish turn as The Watcher that really dre...

Warframe on Switch absolutely lives up to the hype

When it was announced Panic Button was bringing Warframe to Switch, I had to Google what Warframe was. Until that moment, I don’t think I spared a second of my life thinking about it. Here was a free-to-play PC game that launched with...

Review: Fallout 76

I found myself thinking about Chinese Democracy a lot as I slogged through Fallout 76. Remember Chinese Democracy? It was that long-awaited Guns n' Roses album that many assumed would never actually release. Years after the heyday of G...

Review: Spider-Man: Turf Wars

In just two months time we're two thirds of the way through Spider-Man's DLC (that we know of so far). We're just...swinging along like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Review: Spyro Reignited Trilogy

There are plenty of things in Britain that aren't strong. The pound, the economy, my intestinal lining. But one thing that remains rock solid is our apparent nostalgia for the original PlayStation console. The launch of the PS1 was the mome...

Review: Battlefield V

Battlefield V isn't an across-the-board step up from Battlefield 1, but it nails the essentials. It's not just a good Battlefield game, it's a great one. For those folks who wrote DICE off early on, that might come as a surprise. For alpha ...

Review: Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee

I don't remember exactly what compelled me to rush out and buy Pokémon Red before the craze began, but I vividly recall the day I went to Toys"R"Us after school and picked it up. I got to Mt. Moon in one sitting and promptl...

Everything that happened at Microsoft's X018 event

Microsoft just wrapped X018, its "celebration of all things Xbox." What went down? A lot of crowd cheering, an on-stage selfie with Square Enix's Shinji Hashimoto, and a release date for Crackdown 3. While much of the show's news was Game P...

Review: Hitman 2

Hitman really got its groove back in 2016 despite the initial uproar against its episodic format. Amazingly it actually stuck to its schedule (a rarity) and gave us all six main maps (with bonuses) throughout the year: a virtue in this...

Review: Tetris Effect

How do you modernize an icon like Tetris? Simple: You leave the mechanics alone! Tetris Effect is the same perfect puzzling we know and love, but so much care has gone into enhancing every other facet of the experience. It's Tetris by way o...

Smash Ultimate's DLC roster has been finalized

We pretty much knew Smash Bros. Ultimate was going to have DLC, but the last Nintendo Direct outright confirmed that five new fighters will be coming to the game. While Nintendo isn't talking who has been selected, director Masahiro Sakurai...

Review: The Quiet Man

When I first witnessed the reveal for The Quiet Man I called it "bizarre." An innocuous enough comment for sure, but it made it onto Wikipedia. It's official! It turns out bizarre was an understatement.
