Ys: Memories of Celceta enters the PC forest this Summer

Ever since XSEED released Ys SEVEN on PC, my gut feeling was telling me that Ys: Memories of Celceta would appear on it one day. As the company unleashed its mystery stream, we can now rejoice about 2018 being the year where people get...


You can now change your appearance in Monster Hunter: World

My character in Monster Hunter: World more or less turned out as intended, and I haven't grown tired of his look. But that day will come, I'm sure of it. Maybe it's already here for you. If so, consider this a friendly little PSA: you can a...


Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs

Assassin's Creed has spent more than a decade flirting with post-release content concepts that are out-there enough to sell. There was an alternate timeline where George Washington was an evil tyrant. There was a whole add-on that revo...


Chucklefish's magic school sim now named WitchBrook

I liked the sound of Spellbound, but WitchBrook? Yeah, that'll probably stand out better for SEO purposes. Starbound and Wargroove developer Chucklefish has landed on that name for its upcoming wizard school simulation game. If you haven't ...


Skyrim VR releases on Steam next month for $60

It's been a bit of a wait for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR on PC, but the wait is almost over. Bethesda is bringing its rebuilt-for-VR version of the open-world RPG that just won't die to Steam on April 3, 2018 with support for Oculus Rif...


Pillar of Eternity II pushed back to early May

It's only a month, but it might feel like an eternity to hardcore CRPG players. Obsidian's newest game needs just a little bit more time, and that revelation comes mere weeks before launch. Obsidian announced today that Pillars of Eternity ...


Final Fantasy VII Remake team hiring for 'core members'

Ah Final Fantasy VII Remake. That thing you know will probably eventually come out, but might be delayed years on end. Square Enix is knee-deep in development still, and a recent listing for new "core members" of the team implies that there...


No Truce With the Furies gets new name and gameplay trailer

Back when Humble Bundle announced that they would be moving into game publishing, they announced a handful of games, one of which was under a working title of No Truce with the Furies. Now, because I'm a perpetual man-child with the power o...


South Park has a reservation at Casa Bonita for March 20

Casa Bonita, a real-life garbage restaurant, is a staple of South Park lore because of an all-time banger episode from 15 years ago. South Park: The Fractured but Whole plans to revisit that famous locale very soon. From Dusk Till...


Review: Pit People

I really admire The Behemoth. The studio has found success time and time again without resorting to sequels, charting a varied course from Alien Hominid to Castle Crashers to BattleBlock Theater. The team's latest, Pit People, lives in yet ...


Chrono Trigger has come to Steam, but it looks off

A cherished game like Chrono Trigger appearing on Steam should be a clear cause for celebration, yet once again, fans are torn. Today's PC version isn't how you remember the SNES classic. "If you've had the pleasure of playing Chrono Trigge...


Ghost of a Tale leaves Early Access in two weeks

Recent talk of Moss put the medieval mouse adventure Ghost of a Tale back on my mind and left me wondering when the game would see a full release. It appeared on Steam Early Access in July 2016 only to slip off my radar not long after. Than...

Review: Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet

Before we begin, a bit of background: In preparation to write this review of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, I went over the other SAO game reviews I've written for Destructoid, and it turns out, a common thread runs through all of them: Th...


The DLC for Final Fantasy XV will carry in 2019

At this rate, I'm starting to feel like Final Fantasy XV will outlive us all. The post-release episodes centered on Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis were really just the beginning for 2016's ever-expanding RPG adventure. Square Enix has alread...
