Hardline 34: Creepy games and crappy people photo
Hardline 34: Creepy games and crappy people
by Jordan Devore

Happy (early) Halloween! For this week's Hardline, Bill, Brett, and I reminisced about unintentionally scary games that bothered us as kids while Steven was off on the other side of the world throwing bread down a hole. Hope you like your podcasts full of tangents.

Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! photo
Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Do you like dressing up for Halloween? I sure do! In fact, just a few years ago I went as Princess Peach. I was SO beautiful. (You can see the sexy evidence above. And that's my wife playing Rock Band in the background. She was dressed as Mr Andy Dixon.)

Anyway, if you're like me, half the fun of dressing up is showing off your costumes, and the other half is winning a free game for doing so! (The third half is scaring children. The fourth half is stealing their candy as they run away.) Well it just so happens that your beloved Robot Overlord found an extra copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel hidden in his robo-shoe, and he's decided to hand it out at random to someone who posts a picture of themselves in their costume in the comments below!

Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to show us your stuff. All costumes are valid (meaning not just videogame-related ones), so don't feel discouraged even if you're going as Elsa from Frozen like every other f*cking little girl in the world this year. Winner will be chosen at random, but you must hold up a sign that says "DESTRUCTOID" in the picture so we know it's really you. International readers are welcome to enter, though we may ask you to pay for shipping if you win.

Double points if you dress up as Claptrap using only items you found around your house.

Good luck, and have fun!

Driveclub PS Plus Edition delayed until Evolution fixes the full game

Evolution Studios' long-delayed Driveclub released on October 7 but its saga is far from over -- the game still has online issues, and the slice of game for PlayStation Plus subscribers isn't out yet. Sony Worldwide Studios p...

I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti...

New Resident Evil: Remastered video has four improvements to show you

Alessandro told us last week that Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster. That's because it's more than a simple upgrade to HD. This Japanese video gives a bit of first-hand insight as to some of the features that Ca...

by Bill Zoeker

Max and I continue our journey through Shadow Warrior on PS4. We get really confused as to what was going on, so we finally turned on the subtitles. In doing so, we also discover the special weapon skins, including a badass Hotline Miami katana.

Review: Sakura Spirit photo
Review: Sakura Spirit
by Brittany Vincent

The visual novel genre is multifaceted. It runs the gamut from awe-inspiring and horrifying (à la personal favorite Saya no Uta) to controversial (such as the excellent Kana: Little Sister). Others still are simple vehicles for debauchery and sexual desires involving women whose cups runneth over and devilishly handsome men. And that's awesome.

Those types of games are fun, perverse thrill rides that offer colorful characters, familiar tropes, and a waifu or husbando for everyone. I've completed dozens in my time, and I'm always on the lookout for great ones, whether they're fluffy romantic otome titles or hardcore guro sleazefests. But, like any other genre, they can be hit or miss.

What the hell, Assassin's Creed? Time-travel isn't part of the deal

Well, this changes things up. Assassin's Creed Unity is going where no ancestral assassin has gone before -- the future. This trailer shows the Animus simulation collapsing, forcing the protagonist -- still acting and d...
