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 ...


Which Breath of the Wild Zelda hairstyle is your favorite?

A fan came up with this alternate hairstyles for Zelda based on her Breath of the Wild character model, and I have to say, most of them are pretty good. It really got me thinking about how far Nintendo could go with Zelda, and the discussio...


How Breath of the Wild dunks on most open world games

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may have ruined open world games for me. Why? Because it's so goddamned good, it reveals the flaws in nearly every other open world game ever made. Here are a few things Breath of the Wild does that a...


Shantae: Half-Genie Hero's DLC gets a little Risky

Amidst the chaos of Sony's E3 conference, Wayforward let loose the reveal trailer for the upcoming DLC expansion to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero called Pirate Queen's Quest. It looks like the story will run parallel to the events of the main ga...


Breath of the Wild is both a masterpiece and a disaster

[Header courtesy of EternaLegend] Basically everyone and their mother agrees that Breath of the Wild is an incredible game. At the same time, everyone and their mother hates Breath of the Wild. How is that possible? This is something I&rsqu...


Bringing a Guardian down into Gerudo Desert was a good idea

In the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Twitter thread that just keeps on giving, Dorkly's Tristan Cooper -- who previously sought to chuck a Cucco into Death Mountain -- has come up with more unscripted hijinks. Getting a Guardian and a Stone Tal...


Destructoid's top 10 Wii U games (Part 2)

44. That is how many different games were named by Destructoid writers in their top 10 lists. 44 games, of all different genres and types, our writers deemed excellent enough to include in their vote for the Destructoid top 10 games for the...


Destructoid's top 10 Wii U games (Part 1)

There are those who will say the Wii U never stood a chance. With its confusing name, poor marketing, and the lack of a blockbuster Nintendo-developed title at launch, it stood no chance of being the success its forbearer was. That’s ...


Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

Games don’t tend to age as well as entertainment from other media. A movie made 60 years ago, even if it’s not a particularly well-made movie, can be just as enjoyable today as it was when it first hit theaters. There are many v...


Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...


Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For many years, Nintendo simply didn't know what people wanted out of a Zelda game. Originally Wind Waker was going to feature a traditional "realistic" art style, but the creators got worried that in the increasingly competitive ...


Did Nintendo sell us a ROM of Super Mario Bros.?

The Virtual Console on the Wii and Wii U has been pretty crappy. While there are definitely a bunch of classic titles available, Nintendo's treatment of the service comes off as an afterthought. This is a company with one of the richest bac...


20 minutes with Breath of the Wild left me wanting more

I didn't have to get up at 6:00am on a Saturday morning to go out in the freezing cold, sit on a train for two hours and spend 2000 yen each way to get my hands on the Nintendo Switch. But I did. I wanted to see what Nintendo's new toy had ...


Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...


Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2016

In the best of times, "quality over quantity" has been the way of the Wii U. If you bought into the system knowing that you'd more than likely end up playing Nintendo-backed games and not a whole lot else, this isn't your first rodeo. That ...


Review: Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

Darksiders was one of the last generation's hidden gems, a dark, beautifully designed pastiche of several other action-adventure titles. Planned as a four-part series, the franchise only got as far as #Darksiders2 before publisher THQ decla...


Review: Paper Mario: Color Splash

I need to apologize in advance for what you're about to read. I'm about to gush about a game. I'm going to gush hard. I'm going to gush about its graphics, about its music, about its humor and about all the improvements it made over Pa...
