Rogue Legacy

Xbox One owners can explore Rogue Legacy on May 27


Sword or whip?
May 05
I'd like to use a time machine to, among other deeds, dissuade Brett from using the headline "Xbox One inherits Rogue Legacy" so that I might use it right now in this post. Hate coming up with these things. But, really, savin... read

Horn tootin' at its finest

Less than one week after it was revealed, the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition is on store shelves. It contains all released add-ons for the game, as is customary for these re-releases. Really, it... read
Weaponographist review photo
As cursed as its hero
When The Weaponographist was described to me as "a speedrunning hack-n-slasher dipped in a bit of rogue sauce," I barfed a lil' bit. Playing it didn't do much to assuage my illness. read feature

Arkham Knight's batty $40 season pass includes Batgirl campaign


Skins, missions, challenge maps
May 03
Remember when low-key-horrible publisher WB announced a $40 Batman: Arkham Knight season pass last week without even saying what is in it? Fun times, like the $50 doctor bill I just got in the mail after being assured everyth... read

In The Weaponographist, the hero is cursed with constantly breaking weapons


It's okay though, because he's an asshole
Apr 30
Doug McGrave is a hero, but only for the right price. I guess that actually makes him a mercenary. When he comes upon a town in need with little coin to offer, he scoffs and is off. Naturally, an old woman curses him, so tha... read

A GTA V mod for everyone who loves the floor


Looking at you, Coolio

Often times, GTA V will keep you on your toes, what with all the driving, and shooting, and punching random people in the head. This mod does the exact opposite, as it keeps the player on their stomach. And, it does so ... read

Curse the wretched woods

First the patch for faster load times, now this fan-made map of Bloodborne -- damn, shouldn't have raced through the game like that. I'm missing out! There's always the inevitable fourth playthrough and beyond, I suppose. Thi... read

I don't think that's how astronomy works
Apr 28
I kept coming back to the We Are the Dwarves! email that was sent in to Destructoid a few days ago. On the one hand, it isn't especially clear what kind of game it is or how it plays. The Steam Greenlight page lists action, ... read

Warner Bros. Interactive has just announced a Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Knight. Of course it has. It will run you a whopping $40 (haha, wow), but you can also shell out $100 for the Premium Edition, which also inclu... read

Hands-on before the May 5 launch

Clearing Super Mario World for the first time and discovering that the fiery, big-eyed dinosaurs who leap out of the lava are named Blargg was quite the revelation. Come again? Blargg? I can't remember what I called the enemy... read

Batman: Arkham Knight PC specs revealed

As I've said in the past, I'm glad Batman: Arkham Knight is only focusing on current-gen platforms. Maybe then it can reach its full potential as an expansive open-world game. On PC it's looking increasingly likely that ... read
