Check out End of Nations' Liberation Front Faction

End of Nations is one of those free-to-play games that has managed to escape my ever-watchful eye as of late; it caught my attention last year, but has since fallen away. Simply the idea of a strategy MMO, or rather one that isn't fac...

The Daily Hotness: Indie Man returns!

Mega64's Indie Man has made his triumphant return, setting out yet again to thwart AAA publishers in an attempt to stand up for the little guy. I like to think this is how things really happen. Jim reviewed the apparently miserable Spirit ...

The Daily Hotness: I'm a baby and s**t

Ghost Recon's Guerilla Mode gets its own trailer

Oh look, Ghost Recon Future Soldier has a 4-player co-op survival mode. There was a time when the knowledge of horde-mode style multiplayer really excited me, but it's been run into the ground at this point. Surprisingly, Ghost R...

Fatshark's Krater will make a hole in my wallet

How have I not heard of Krater before today?!  The top-down RPG from Fatshark games (the folks behind Lead and Gold: Gangs of the West, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2), touts an intriguing setting and more than its fair share of s...

The Daily Hotness: Ryu's a bit bitter

Yeah, it seems most people didn't like Ninja Gaiden, but that doesn't make Ryu any less of a badass. This was definitely Epic Mickey 2's day. Beyond that, Mass Effect 3's getting a face-fixing patch, the Adventure Time DS game is a thing, ...

NCsoft bows out of E3, probably playing Farmville instead

I know you folks are starting to compile your own personal lists of who will or won't be in attendance at E3 this year, right? Well it seems you can definitely count on seeing Zynga there, so go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief. A few oth...

Frogger crosses the road yet again, this time in neon

The Daily Hotness: Haggar vs. Sentinel

Haggar isn't a threat? Mistake number one.  Today saw another deluge of GDC goodness, some mildly-interesting Vita news, more next-gen rumors, Blades of Time actually exists, and more happened on 3/9/2012. Destructoid Original:&n...

This Armored Core V customization walkthrough is tasty

I... f*ck. It's Armored Core V, guys. I remember buying my PS1 way back when, opening the packed-in demo disk (the one with Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Parappa the Rapper, and I.Q), and falling in love with Armored Core. The cust...

Go behind the scenes of The Witcher 2's sleek CG trailer

There are quite a few behind-the-scenes videos out there, but rarely are they delivered with this much class. At its core, the trailer simply depicts The Witcher 2's January CG trailer in its early stages, but it's so damn stylish. The tra...

Blacklight Retribution beta gets a new map/trailer

There are a lot of free-to-play FPS on the market. Seriously, there are tons. Like, you could throw a stone out into the wilds of the internet and odds are, if it doesn't hit porn, it'll hit a f2p shooter. Regardless, developer Zombie Stud...

Rock Band DLC adds that sweet, sweet Everclear

You'd think that, after years of music games, the potential for DLC would start to diminish. Also, you'd be mostly correct. Next Tuesday, three more tepid tracks will be released for Rock Band 3 and, well, they're from Everclear, Masto...

Nintendo's Wii and the motion control trend that followed gave seemed like the game industry's answer to inactive youth. As games have grown in popularity, kids have spent less and less time outside and, logically, "active" games are the so...

Double Fine Kickstarter update 2 and Ron Gilbert's wisdom

We all knew Double Fine would do alright with their Kickstarter campaign, but I'm not sure we all expected it to blow up like it has. With over $2,228,000 raised so far, it's kind of a big deal. In response, Double Fine has announced ...

HeroClix Online expands with Thor and Green Lantern
