Review: The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia

The Seven Deadly Sins is one of the most fun anime series in recent memory. An interesting, unique premise with great character design and a bouncy art style and fight choreography are all reasons the series succeeds in both manga and anime...


Review: Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

Shadow of the Colossus is a timeless masterpiece. Some of the greatest games exist as the best representatives of an era or a genre. They were groundbreaking and influential in ways that guided and evolved future game design. They're r...


What's your favorite colossus?

The PlayStation 4 version of Shadow of the Colossus will release tomorrow, and we've already told you it's a fantastic remake of an incredible game. For some people, it will represent their third opportunity to happily play through thi...


A Beginner's Guide to Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter has made the jump to modern consoles, and with it comes a brand new audience. I love seeing more and more people experience the series for the first time, just as I did not too long ago. Where do I even begin? There is a...


Review: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

It's been nearly a week (plus beta change) that I've put Dissidia NT to the test, and I've come out of the arena with mixed thoughts. For one, I'm totally okay with the goofy arcadey brawler tint. 3v3 might seem chaotic and unnecessary...


Review: OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes

As Cartoon Network begins losing the major cartoon shows that brought the network to the forefront of animation over the last decade, they're going to need to turn to shows with a great amount of promise and throw all of their support behin...


Review: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ was certainly met with a ton of fan adoration and hope as it presented a fighting game Dragon Ball fans had never expected to see: a competent one. Each one they were excited about in the past also held a major flaw. Th...


Review: Monster Hunter: World

Chop, cut, mince, craft, boil, eat, repeat. The life of a hunter is hard. Especially if you’re a vegetarian controlling one. Monster Hunter's core since 2004 has been predicated on grinding and discovering its own esoteric rules and p...


Review: Celeste

If you’re even remotely interested in this game, this review is a huge waste of your time. It’s good. It’s very fucking good. You should just go ahead and buy it. Celeste is one of those rare games where I knew it was spec...


Resident Evil 7's real horror lies in its resonance

The storm outside used to haunt you obsessively. Harsh winds clash into the shuddering walls of the Baker residence. You hear an erratic moan from upstairs. Or was that the wind? You don’t know. You’ll never know. It may have be...


Review: Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones

"Have we done good?" Bayek asks Aya (now Amunet) toward the end of The Hidden Ones, the first proper expansion to Assassin's Creed Origins. Although Assassin's Creed doesn't always advertise it, there's a moral uncertainty permeating m...


Review: The Inpatient

Until Dawn surprised the hell out of me. On the surface, Supermassive Games' cinematic horror adventure looked like standard slasher-film fare, but it played with genre tropes in such a delightful way and knew how to balance tension, thrill...


Review in Progress: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ has undoubtedly been one of the most anticipated fighting game releases of 2018. The hype was strong for this as fans of the Dragon Ball franchise had been dreaming of a game that could match the anime series for quite ...


Review: Iconoclasts

What’s the best level you’ve ever played in a 2D platformer? Maybe something classic like World 1-1 in the original Super Mario Bros., or the intro level to Mega Man X? Those fantastic examples of great game design that teach th...


18 indie games to look forward to in 2018

First of all, these are only games with an announced 2018 release date. None of this "when it's ready" stuff (I'm looking at you, Into the Breach). In fact, if all of these games don't release in 2018...I'll play through Troll and I ag...


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...


Dark Souls is arriving on Nintendo Switch fairly soon

[Update: Dark Souls: Remastered will cost $40 "on consoles," according to Bandai Namco.] Welp, you blinked, and probably missed the "Mini" Nintendo Direct that just happened. Among some other announcements, Bandai Namco jumped in to reveal&...


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...


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...


Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2017 goes to...

Yoko Taro did it. While the PlayStation 4 had no shortage of remarkable games this year and trying to sort through them to crown a single standout title was conflicting to say the least, Yoko Taro, Platinum Games, and Square Enix were onto ...
