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...

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 ...

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

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...
