A couple years back, we had a feature known as Occamsdex. It became something of a crowdsourced community feature in which users would choose their favorite Pokémon or other video game creatures for our one-and-only Oc...   read

Ever since I got a new gaming laptop and a Nintendo Switch, I've found some of my PS4 and Vita games migrating to them. This isn't an entirely bad thing, as it frees up storage on my PlayStation platforms, (where storage is o...   read

When it comes to October, it's pretty easy to come up with an idea for Bloggers Wanted. Halloween presents a lot of options. People will start playing horror games and marathon scary movies, but then there's the ultimate ques...   read

Once upon a time in my Final Fantasy XI days, I had a dream. Smartphones were a relatively new occurrence at the time, as was social media, but I had already seen the potential and it fired up my imagination. I daydreamed abo...   read

These days, the game you buy at launch may not be the game you have months or years after release. For multiplayer titles, this is almost to be expected, even before the internet was something everyone had access to, you had ...   read

Bloggers Wanted
As many of you know, I'm all about the latest, hottest, class-based games. Yep, you guessed it. I'm playing that game -- the one all the cool kids are playing and the Destructoid staff posts about at least nine times each day. You can't even enjoy Americanized Mexican fast food without it being shoved down your throat. Yep, it's that one.   read
