Review: Shephy

  Watch Video I didn't think I'd ever be reviewing a solitaire card game literally about sheep fucking in alternate dimensions where plague doctors roam in packs, but here we are and there is no going back now. It gets weirder, I promise.   read

Review: De Mambo

  Watch Video According to The Dangerous Kitchen's Kickstarter for De Mambo, the developers made the game as a way to distract themselves from their hype surrounding the then-upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. They also attempt...   read

Review: Bulb Boy

  Watch Video I can't get into most adventure games. Hunting for objects and attempting to use them in puzzles is typically too tedious for me to enjoy, and drawn-out narratives between characters with little to no interaction have literal...   read

Review: That's You

  Watch Video Party games that use your smart device are quickly becoming all the rage these days from the Jackbox Party Pack series to Use Your Words and others I'm sure I'm forgetting. Not to be outdone, Sony has now got its ha...   read

  Watch Video It isn't often here at Destructoid that we don't review a game that has been released for almost four years across seven platforms, but Oceanhorn is one of those cases. This Zelda-like started out as an iOS game way back in t...   read

The Tearoom is based on a hidden surveillance camera sting carried out in 1962 by the police in Mansfield, Ohio (a city I've frequently been in my entire life). The police set up a two-way mirror and filmed local gay men...   read

If you haven't been living under a rock the last year, you've probably heard of this asymmetrical multiplayer horror title, thanks to every YouTuber and Twitch streamer on the planet screaming over it.  If you have, you ...   read

Everything old is new again, thanks to 8bitdo's controller collection that looks and feels like authentic NES and SNES controllers. Not only do these controllers work wirelessly (though you can play via USB on supported devic...   read

I'm becoming a real RGB slut. I have RGB lighting in my keyboard, mouse, behind my TV, and even, I shit you not, in my toilets. I don't know what it is, but being able to see a rainbow or any color I want at any given moment just makes me happier.  So here I am, reviewing a mouse pad with RGB lighting, and I couldn't be happier with it.   read

Review: Monolith

  Watch Video The dungeons of Zelda, the cute characters of Undertale, and Geometry Wars had a threeway and gave birth to this wonderful roguelike that I've been having a deeply romantic affair with for the past couple weeks. When I come home I just can't wait to get inside of it and go as deep as I can in its fiery dungeons while spraying my hot loads in every direction.   read

  Watch Video How about that Xbox One, guys? So many hot exclusives have come out this year for it such as, well, nothing. Okay, okay, there was Halo Wars 2, but you already forgot about that like most people have, right? I sure did. ...   read

  Watch Video Did you know that Spacewar!, arguably the first video game ever made, had a simulated black hole? Years later Asteroids didn't even feature anything that advanced but is more widely known. Astro Duel Deluxe is a multiplayer spiritual successor to those games, in a sense, only it can easily be played on the go with up to six players. So that's something.   read

Review: Perception

  Watch Video A first-person story-driven horror game with a strong blind female protagonist made by former developers of games like BioShock and Dead Space has got to be good, right? Plus, it has all the workings of a game someo...   read

  Watch Video When Sega don't, indies does. Or something like that. First, we got the furrylicious Freedom Planet, which is sold well enough to warrant a sequel, and now we have Spark the Electric Jester that combines the best parts of Sonic & Knuckles with the best parts of Kirby's Dream Land.  Does it do it well? You're god damned right it does.   read

I've been following Eagle Island for a while after seeing some awesome looking GIFs of it on Twitter. It's a procedurally generated Metroidvania and/or roguelike about a boy and his pet owl that he has trained to attack ...   read

Review: TumbleSeed

  Watch Video "FUCK!" That's the word I say right before I nearly throw my Switch across the room after dying what seems like the millionth time in TumbleSeed.  "I hate this fucking game," I think at the time, but I don't really. I actually like it a lot, but I don't know if I'll ever be able to 100% it, but damn it if I haven't been trying my hardest.   read

Review: Flinthook

  Watch Video One part ghost, one part pirate, one part bounty hunter, one part hooker. No, I'm not talking about your grandma, but the protagonist of Flinthook, a game that had me 'hooked' from the start. Sorry. I had to.   read

  Watch Video Watch every Adam Sandler movie in a row. See my grandma naked. Lick the callused scaly feet of Louie Anderson after a hard day's work on the set of Family Feud. Attempt to tie my flaccid penis containing an entire cotton swab in a knot. Those are the things I'd rather do than ever play this steaming pile of shit again.   read

I'm a huge fan of The Jackbox Party Pack titles as they not only offer up a ton of content that both gamers and non-gamers alike can enjoy, but they prevent your friends and family from just ignoring you and everyone els...   read

Review: Macbat 64

  Watch Video I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels that get the point across of what the final product would be like. Which considering Macbat 64's price tag, isn't the end of the world or my wallet.   read

Review: Poi

  Watch Video What if I told you there is a game you can play right now that combines some of the best mechanics of 3D Mario games with a bunch of cute original characters, locations, and enemies? And what if I told you that very game also failed to be crowdfunded on Kickstarter, yet still released and is quite good? Poi is that game. Obviously.   read

Review: 1-2-Switch

"Fucking stupid" is my aesthetic -- just ask anyone on Twitter that disagrees with my opinions -- and 1-2-Switch is definitely stupid, though not in the good sense. It's stupidly priced with a stupidly low amount of content. If only 1-2-Switch felt like more than a collection of funny videos and tech demos.   read
