PC Port Report: Mortal Kombat X

Podtoid 291: Shovel Knight's Yacht Party

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is ridiculous and over the top in all the right ways

The PC version of Mortal Kombat X was broken at launch. High Voltage Software (not NetherRealm) was responsible for the port, and it seems as if they are aware of all of the issues its caused over the past week or so. De...
Hey, remember when Activision released a Guitar Hero game every year, and in some cases, multiple times annually? Until Warriors of Rock killed off the franchise, of course. Well now the series is back later this year with Gu...
Nintendo is starting to get more aggressive with its marketing for Splatoon -- they've just announced a Best Buy-specific bundle for the US for $299.99. It'll arrive on May 29 when the game ships, and will include a Wii ...
Standard editions of games are fun. They allow you to get the game for the lowest possible price without any additional bells and whistles attached. They're the default way to buy a game, aren't they? As it turns out, not alw...
I loved Alan Wake. Maybe it's because I overdosed on Stephen King as a kid and have always had a particular penchant for that whole fiction-becomes-fact thing (if only to keep alive the dream that one day, McDreamy is go...
A twitter bot may have spilled the beans on as-yet-unannounced new PlayStation Vita design. The tweet, published on the weekend by @trademark_bot, shared details of a patent filed recently by Sony Computer Entertainment for "a portable LCD screen game machine controller". That's right -- LCD. Not OLED. 
Here’s something to make you feel old and angry: I’ve never seen the Mad Max movies. The first one came out 15 years before I was born, so the hype surrounding them was never around in my lifetime. I know a little...
Squad has announced Kerbal Space Program is finally hitting 1.0 and leaving Early Access in a week's time. Mark the date on your calendars, space aficionados and sadistic Kerbal killers: April 27 will see the game finall...
Just last week I asked readers if they were into the idea of 2D Assassin's Creed games. Roughly 41% were on board, 33% preferred the 3D iterations, and 26% have checked out of the series entirely. Ubisoft doesn't really care what you think, though. As long as they sell, those assassins will keep on stabbin'.
There are a few glorious, magical days where the Destructoid UK team gets to actually write about news from the UK. They happen very rarely, but thankfully the stars have aligned and today is one of those days. God save the b...
This week we're working on making the site run smoothly on all mobile devices. Thankfully some of you are enjoying the update. We definitely are listening to your feedback:  If you visited the site 24 hours ago I think y...
When I think of Insomniac Games, a few titles come to mind: Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the (pre-Skylanders) Dragon, and Sunset Overdrive. The studio's new game, Slow Down, Bull, is not like those -- it's a smaller project for S...
April showers are upon us, and so are more of the spring PC gaming sales. Just today GameStop launched its PC Gaming Spring Sale with discounts up to 75% off 136 PC digital titles (yes, we counted). Several titles are hitting...
Striking while the iron's hot, EA's already released the first developer diary for Star Wars Battlefield, which was announced last week. The video's full of the type of information that should make any series fan giddy: DICE...
A few months ago, Jordan dutifully informed us of a game that we probably could've gone our whole lives without knowing about: a Frozen game in which Anna gives birth. What if I told you there are more Frozen pregn...
The sequel to the 3DS's Fire Emblem: Awakening, Fire Emblem If, comes out June 25 in Japan (next year for us). As we've noted, it comes in two different versions with alternate storylines each the size of Awakening, while a t...
