MLB The Show 16 review
Last year's The Show was born on third thinking it hit a triple and it's not like MLB The Show 16 feels substantially different, though it has cleaned its game up and graciously eased up a bit on the crazy, stat-buffing brand...   read

Ask your Podtoid questions here!

I'm going to a baseball game in the evening, but the afternoon? It's dedicated to Podtoid, baby. The latest episode of Destructoid's flagship podcast was a hootenanny, probably because y'all asked us all them great questions to read and dis...

Fallout 4 1.5 update and Survival Mode to hit consoles 'in coming weeks'

Bethesda has released some minor fixes in the Fallout 4 1.5 patch line on PC, for those who decided to opt into the beta, perhaps to try out the new, more challenging Survival Mode. Today's update (there are instructions on how to access th...

Uncharted 4 pre-order

Is that a Phurba dagger in his pocket or is Nathan Drake just happy to be 'powered' by GameStop?

Along with four separate editions of the game (get it, Uncharted FOUR?), Naughty Dog's alleged last entry in the series (or in Drake's story, at least) also has pre-order boners bonuses, including retail-specific ones. Quote Chris, "DLC is...

When you're just here so you don't get fined

Pokemon trademark points to Sun and Moon legendaries

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is out August 19

Nintendo announced a new Metroid at E3 last year. Unfortunately it's Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which is, uh, well. Fortunately, this technicality did mean that we got to try and shave an approximation of a metroid into Zack's hair in...

Praise the...run!

It's like a got-dang Benny Hill routine. Dark Souls III is fun. Here's the original video. Much less funny because comedy is all about. Timing. To make up for it, here's an excellent video of some poor sucker getting caught in well-planne...

Catch Ocarina of Time's Gerudo Valley completely rebuilt in Unreal 4

Carrying on the classic games remade in Unreal 4 genre, CryZENx has mocked up The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's Gerudo Valley in the cutting edge (at time of writing; please don't come back five years from now in HoloSpace and own me)...

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...

Parkour! Slender dev's new game eschews traditional horror for rocket legs

Slender: The Arrival developer Blue Isle Studios has revealed its latest project, the sci-fi tinged Valley, which I imagine will suffer from some discoverability issues. How about VValley, like The VVitch? Aside from being a common noun, t...

Red Dead Redemption 2 is huge, looks like a prequel story

Much of Red Dead Redemption's theme owes itself to its setting, not in the heyday of cowboy-ism, but nearer to the end of Manifest Destiny. It's why John Marston is working for government men in the first place. But it looks like Rockstar's...

Naked body pile executions are why Hitman is so good

You may remember from my review that the new, episodic Hitman is good as heck, "a dope slapstick murder comedy." I recounted a few funny tales here, including a pretty amusing, but not all that creative kill (it's practically set up for you...
