Even more secrets from The Wonderful 101 revealed

[Update: The art above is a mock up from fan artist Kibbles and is not official art from Platinum as originally reported. Sorry for the mistake, and thanks to Edutena for pointing it out.] Sometimes a game takes a while to fi...

Sony: Last of Us actually deserves its GOTY Edition

Just like every other game these days, The Last of Us is getting a Game of the Year edition. However, unlike some other games, Naughty Dog's latest probably deserves one, Sony argues. "With over 250 Game of the Year...

Review: Dreamfall Chapters Book One

It wasn't surprising to hear that the long-awaited Dreamfall Chapters would be split into separate episodes -- it's in the name, really. Episodic adventure games are well established now, so in my mind, separating a new Dream...

Oh, so that's how PlayStation 4 Share Play works

I had a general idea of what Share Play for PlayStation 4 was but this video summarizes the feature well. The main draw is that with a PlayStation Plus membership, you can share a game with a friend, for an hour at a time, a...

Earlier this week, a list of Achievements for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas made the rounds and Rockstar has since confirmed that, yes, the game is getting a new release on Xbox 360. The title had been playable under the Xbox...

Life is beautiful: Deadly Premonition for PC discounted to $2.49

Word has gotten out about Swery65's cult classic Deadly Premonition in the years since Jim Sterling's memorable review, but there are many people who wrote it off or otherwise missed out. This might help. Rising Star Games ha...

Review: Mind Zero  photo
Review: Mind Zero
by Brittany Vincent

At a glance, it's easy to look at Mind Zero and compare it to the Persona series given its art style and the narrative advertised within early trailers and promotional materials. And you wouldn't be incorrect in declaring that it borrows several elements from the popular role-playing series.

Still, it's unfair to call Mind Zero a copycat when its most fundamental elements are much different from the Shin Megami Tensei spinoff. That doesn't mean the game is actually all that impressive, however. Acquire and ZeroDiv's Vita RPG features an interesting premise, but in the end it's a weaker product than those that obviously inspired it.

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.

100% Series Retrospective: Diablo photo
100% Series Retrospective: Diablo
by Chris Carter

Things have been crazy at Destructoid since I became the Reviews Director. On my first week, I had to tackle a new Ratchet & Clank, Super Mario 3D World, and three other games. It hasn't let up after that, and as a result, I haven't had as much time to focus on my Carter's Quest series.

Thankfully though I am often able to incorporate assignments into other works, and since playing a ton of Reaper of Souls on PS4 last month I decided to tackle its predecessors yet again. The Diablo series is among my most-played franchises, so it was an easy adventure to take.

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin...

I want The Tomorrow Children yesterday!

Cinematography, lighting, and geometry. Those are three visual aspects that Q-Games really focused on in The Tomorrow Children by taking advantage of the power of the PS4. That's how it's creating that unique and gorgeous lo...

'Time is literally running out': Lengthy look at Quantum Break photo
'Time is literally running out': Lengthy look at Quantum Break
by Steven Hansen

Have we even seen this much Quantum Break gameplay? The half television show, half videogame from the developers of Max Payne and Alan Wake is coming to Xbox One next year.

Everything about this is hokey and trite, a Marvel comic in a leather jacket ensconced button up with less color. It also has a pretty nice look to it compared to other photorealistic games. There's some color and good lighting there. It's like a not gross and exclusively piss-covered Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

It's winning me over for the first time though through technical marvel but because that initial bit of combat starts with shrug inducing third-person cover boredom before moving to Singularity-reminiscent time powers--gained by being involved in a freak accident that is killing time--that seems to encourage scaled back, Vanquish-style movement. Active gunplay. Like, there could be a good action game under all this pomp instead of what easily could've been lazy cover-based shooting gluing a bad plot together? 

I still don't want to sit through the TV show, though, especially when it looks as if the game will have more than enough cutscenes and non-interactive bits.
