The Vanishing of Ethan Carter still holds up

Detective Paul Prospero always starts in that tunnel on those train tracks. Minutes away from discovering an abandoned train, and then seconds away from finding a legless corpse. Prospero's story -- which is really just a retelling of Ethan...

Review: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Street Fighter V had a major identity crisis at launch. Capcom wanted to get it out quick so they could make the call for EVO 2016, and it broke records. A certain kind of record though, as the actual sales figures limped across internal ta...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Hell is Empty

The very first episode of the very first Life is Strange was titled Chrysalis. Through that name, we're supposed to infer that its characters are vulnerable and wrapped in cocoons, but that they'll eventually metamorph into beautiful b...

Review: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Odds are you've probably heard of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, also known as "PUBG." Maybe your friend plays it. Maybe you've seen a headline or two and wondered "what makes this particular game so special?" After what felt like an eon in...

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

Kept you waiting, huh? We've seen robots with weird life choices overtake the top PS4 slot, Fleischer cartoons made a comeback nearly a century later, and a Nintendo game triumph on mobile. It was a weird, wonderful year, so wonderful ...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Friends to the End

It's no small secret that I'm in love with the Shantae series. I was immediately taken in by the magnetic characters, brilliant music and retro adventure action. The WayForward developed franchise marries the gameplay of classic platformers...

Review: L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files

I've made my love for L.A. Noire very clear. Sure it's flawed, and presents itself as an open world game when it's really not, but the character interactions and camp really make it. Team Bondi (and its cast) put in so much effort into ever...

I played Soulcalibur VI and here are my humble thoughts

This weekend, I had the good fortune to be in attendance at Namco Bandai's LEVEL UP Winter event, transporting me from cold, soggy Nottingham to cold, soggy Paris. Held at Le Huit Valois convention centre, writers, journalists, professional...

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 ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best VR Game of 2017

I won't claim to know what the future holds for virtual reality as a whole, but the cost of entry is becoming less of an obstacle, companies like Oculus, Valve, and Sony are still pushing forward, and every day more people are finding out ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2017

I've been a PC fan for a long time. My first shooter was Catacomb 3-D, and my first OS was DOS. And all this time, I've seen the phrases "PC gaming is dying," or "PC gaming is dead" just about every year. Yet time and time again it rises up...

Recap: Everything that happened at The Game Awards 2017

The Game Awards 2017 may have stretched on far too long, with too many ads, and the show's pacing still wasn't where it needs to be, but you know what? I had an okay time. I'm seeing improvement. Zelda: Breath of the Wild took game of the y...

Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem. We've been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they're going to acquiesce, but they don't, at least not fully, and then in a ye...

Injustice 2's PC Port helps redeem WB Games and NetherRealm

After the godawful PC ports of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, I wouldn't blame someone for being leery when approaching Injustice 2 on PC. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone for simply not purchasing anything from WB Games on...

Review: Star Wars Battlefront II

In the time since I posted my review-in-progress for Star Wars Battlefront II, EA temporarily halted the sale of in-game purchases. "This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be ea...

Review: L.A. Noire (Switch)

Cole Phelps: professional asshole. As I solved case after case in L.A. Noire upon its original release in 2011 (feel_old_yet.jpg), that's the only thought that consistently popped into my mind. But as absurd as this crime-stopping romp was,...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

When I was working in video game retail, for many years one of the safest answers to the obligatory "What game should I buy my kid?" question was: "How's about talk to your child and learn about their interests." Hang on, no it wasn't. It w...

Review: Doom (Switch)

PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One. It's a weird phrase I'm not used to seeing. During the Wii U era, PC, PS4, Xbox One kind of just flowed out of my fingertips. It's muscle memory at this point, seeing a major multiplatform game on the "big three" ...

Review: Sonic Forces

It might be time for a new approach to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games. We see so many great studios swoop in and re-invent (or do right by) the series, like PagodaWest Games and Headcannon with the recent Sonic Mania, but those are mostly 2D a...
