  2. Nicalis is making some Switch ports, but seems shy about it

    01.20 / 00:54 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Nicalis is best known for their work on 2D sprite based titles on the 3DS and Wii U, and it looks like they'll be working with Nintendo, porting some of their previous work to the Switch. The company may have revealed more than intended when it tweeted a picture of the Switch's user interface earlier today though, as the tweet was quickly made private.
  3. The Division's last DLC adds traditional competitive multiplayer

    01.19 / 22:28 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It doesn't take a background in sociology or psychology to understand that there's something fascinating about The Division's Dark Zone. That's the area in the game where people can play against the environment to find high-end gear. But, there are also real people running around, and they might try to kill each other to take that gear for themselves. Every encounter is a tense and uneasy affair, just waiting to see if the other person's going to be a dick…
  4. The new Call of Cthulhu trailer is a descent into madness

    01.19 / 20:37 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    I forgot that there was a new Call of Cthulhu game in the works. The Cyanide-developed title was announced early last year, but news of the Lovecraftian "RPG Investigation" game has been infrequent as of late. Luckily, publisher Focus Home Interactive have released a trailer for Call of Cthulhu that scratches a specific, spooky itch.
  5. 20 minutes with Breath of the Wild left me wanting more

    01.19 / 20:00 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    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 to offer, even if Mario Odyssey was not playable, and I just had to try out The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the…
  6. Ubisoft swipes Guitar Hero developer FreeStyleGames from Activision

    01.19 / 19:23 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Guitar Hero Live was a fantastic rhyhtm game that breathed new life into the genre for me after nearly a decade of safe plays from developers like Harmonix. But a lot of things were going against it -- the "live" gimmick was off-putting for some, you had to buy all new hardware (something Harmonix is still dealing with), it had microtransactions, and the Guitar Hero name had already been dragged so far through the mud it…
  7. Torment: Tides of Numenara shows off combat in this new trailer

    01.19 / 15:43 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    If there's one role-playing game I regret never having played, it's got to be Planescape: Torment. This PC RPG has gained a huge cult following over the years, and it's pretty easy to find people willing to sing its praises. From what I know about the game it sounds fascinating; dying merely sends your story down a different path since your character is an immortal being, and the setting requires you to travel between multiple dimensions to try and…
  8. Alone in the Dark creator's new horror title 2Dark is nerve-wracking

    01.19 / 14:30 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It's about time we had a refresher on 2Dark, that survival horror game from Alone in the Dark and Little Big Adventure…
  9. The next Overwatch event will be loaded with cock

    01.19 / 13:16 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It looks like the next timed event in Overwatch won't be Valentine themed, though that still may be something to look forward to in the future. Last night the Overwatch team revealed that the next event will be themed around Chinese New Year, and looks to have a focus on Mei and D.…
  10. Super Mario Run is coming to Android devices in March

    01.19 / 01:01 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It's a bit late to the finish line, but it'll get there eventually. Nintendo's Super Mario Run took the mobile world by storm in December when it racked up 40 million downloads in its first four…
  11. Review in Progress: Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea

    01.19 / 00:24 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    At first glance, the Atelier games may look like cutesy Japanese RPGs and are often dismissed as something creepy for daring to have pretty anime girls, but there is more to them than what is on the box art. For those unfamiliar, the series focuses on deep and involved item synthesis framed by a story that often features an alchemist on a journey to improve their skills in the field along with a larger…
  12. We'll know all about The Division's final add-on tomorrow, but here's a quick look right now

    01.18 / 23:47 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Bodies hanging from hooks, a sign that reads "Fuck off and die" -- did you think that The Division would go out any less hostile than it came in? Agents have been trying to restore…
  13. Fire Emblem Warriors is also headed to New 3DS

    01.18 / 23:11 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Nintendo didn't really show much of anything for Fire Emblem Warriors during its Switch event last week, but at least we didn't have to wait long to see more. Is this "extended"…
  14. Fire Emblem Heroes brings the series to mobile phones next month

    01.18 / 23:10 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    A big focus of Nintendo's Fire Emblem direct was the series' first mobile entry, Fire Emblem Heroes, which is coming out first for Android devices February 2 and "available soon" on iPad and iPhone. It will be free, with additional in-app purchases. The "tactical…
  15. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia comes to 3DS in May

    01.18 / 22:34 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a re-imagining of the series second entry, the Japan-exclusive Fire Emblem Gaiden, is coming to 3DS eShop on May 19, 2017. Shadows of Valentia tells the story of two kingdoms split up ages ago by the gods Duma (the hawkish, strength-focused ruler of the north) and Mila (the peaceful, comfortable rule of the south) and subsequently forged into polar kingdoms…
  16. Breath of the Wild is only 900p on the Switch, for those who care

    01.18 / 18:53 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    With each new console generation comes the expected boost in hardware power, but Nintendo has never been a typical console manufacturer. For all intents and purposes, the Nintendo Switch just looks like a portable Wii U, which may be why The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will only output at 900p while in docked mode. Yes, we won't be getting a full 1080p presentation for the newest Zelda game (which both
  17. Danganronpa Another Episode drops in June in the west

    01.18 / 17:39 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It's still weird to me that something called Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is now part of the zeitgeist, popular enough for Spike Chunsoft and NIS to localize and promote like it was almost a AAA game, but here we are in this delightfully brave new world. While it's been confirmed for the west for quite sometime, we now know that this spinoff that's set between the first and second games is coming in June in Europe and…
  18. Yoshi's Woolly World is getting a Poochy amiibo update on Wii U

    01.18 / 16:25 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    While Nintendo regularly provides slightly different portable editions for their console line with new features, one mechanic will be making its way into Yoshi’s Woolly World on Wii U for free. The 3DS version, Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, is heavily centered around the entire gimmick of adding Poochy into the game, but you'll be able to scan the yarn Poochy amiibo into the original on Wii…
  19. Metroid prequel fan game is out now, but how long will it survive?

    01.18 / 15:12 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Most Nintendo fans agree that if there's one series that the publisher consistently fumbles, it's Metroid. Okay, so I get that maybe they weren't thrilled with the reception with Other M, but to see them shut down other fan games in addition to completely ignoring…
  20. Atlus' two new games have a name I can't pronounce

    01.18 / 14:36 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    I've recently done the math and figured out that I'll be commuting to and from work for three hours a day. Including work and my lunch, that's approximately 12 hours a day that will be spent going to work, working, and coming home from work. It's depressing as all hell, but the hours spent on the train and bus will allow me to finally dig into the several Vita games I have yet to play. Considering I'll be in this situation for the next year or so, I'll no doubt run out of games in…
