Later this year on everything but Wii U
After Best Buy and a leak spilled the beans, we now have official confirmation from Activision -- Platinum Games will develop Transformers: Devastation, an upcoming action project based on the Transformers universe. It ...
Same goes for four-player co-op
Treyarch showed competitive multiplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III as well as the game's four-person co-op campaign at Sony's E3 2015 press conference. The former had wallrunning and sliding all over the place while the...
Best Buy spills the beans again
Well, that was fast. Not a full day after it was leaked, Platinum Games has been confirmed as the developer behind the gorgeously cel-shaded Transformers: Devastation thanks to a premature Best Buy listing.
As well as confirm...
One must fall for these screens
A new Transformers game from Activision, Transformers: Devastation, has been leaked in the lead up to E3, and damn if it doesn't look like an 80's cartoon come to life. Someone better call Cosimano, I think he'll be excited.
Black Ops 3 confirmed for old consoles
No matter what Activision says, warfare hasn't advanced all that far. That's evident by the fact that Black Ops 3 will release on legacy consoles, making it the eleventh Call of Duty title on PS3 and Xbox 360.
I'd be up for it
Overwatch, the newest IP from Blizzard, looks like their biggest gamble yet. It's not banking on an established franchise like Hearthstone did with Warcraft, and the cast is composed of completely original character...
Get ready, Guardian
Destiny's next content drop, The Taken King, will release on September 15 and open up a third subclass and ability for each of the Guardian classes according to a report from Kotaku.
Kotaku is asserting this following a tip o...
Way to go, Guardians
Remember when we told you that Destiny players had raised $400K for the Nepal Earthquake Relief effort? Well, it gets better.
It gets a lot better.
Sales of the $30 t-shirt -- of which $15 went to the cause -- have now ...
Skylanders pioneered the recent toys-to-life market, and from there, moved on to giant figures, then to swappable toys, and eventually, to "traps." Now Activision is taking the series to vehicles with SuperChargers.
Third time is a charm
Another year, another round of Call of Duty DLC -- four rounds, yet again, in the case of Advanced Warfare. We've already had the Havoc and Ascendance packs drop so far as part of the Season Pass, and while they weren't bad offerings, nothing about them really vied for a purchase.
With Supremacy, there may be a case for the pass, at the very least at a discount down the line.
For a change
After the initial reveal of Guitar Hero Live, Activision's been slowly unveiling ten songs a week to keep us interested. The only problem is that the vast majority of songs (and artists) are completely unknown to the majority...
And a shark
Activision's going through that awkward time of year where it's gearing up to make a big splash at E3 with it's new Call of Duty game, but it's not quite done promoting its old Call of Duty game. That's how we get trail...
But that's probably my fault
The tracklist so far for Guitar Hero Live has been a bit puzzling for some. Personally, I can suspend disbelief long enough to pretend to play a Skrillex song on guitar. I mean, I'm pretending to play guitar using an electron...
Den of puppies
I am convinced that somewhere, all of the new assets for the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion were lost, forcing Bungie to restart the entire process all over again.
Why else would almost the entire $20 premium DLC be a reskin?
Den of puppies
Destiny was one of the weirdest releases in recent memory. It was so unbelievably ambitious, but when it dropped, it was basically a fraction of what Activision advertised. As time went on many tweaks were made to the ga...
Hot acts like Marilyn Manson
I have willfully ignored Guitar Hero Live until now. I will go back to that after I finish informing you of the 10 songs newly confirmed for the game (?), none of which I recognize by name, but a few of which I have assuredly...
The first 24 tracks in the Guitar Hero Live soundtrack have been announced, and we must face a dark truth: the latest entry in Activision's venerable rockstar simulation franchise sure does have a lot of tracks without h...
PS4 and Xbox One later this year
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is officially happening, and will be arriving on the PS4 and Xbox One later this year. Activision has sent over some new screens for us to look at, and confirmed details like online play, with dr...
So when is Skate coming back?
After years in hibernation, the next full iteration in the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series is finally upon us and unfortunately it's not sounding (or looking) good. After months of rumors and hints, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will fi...
Destiny is eschewing the typical raid format this time around with House of Wolves. A lot of people are excited that raids aren't the main focus of endgame this time around, but personally, I just see it as a way for them to ...
The developers speak out
As part of my recent visit with Treyarch covering the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, I had the opportunity to sit down with three of the key figures behind this year's entry into the Call of Duty franchise.
Complexity and simplicity collide
During my recent visit with Treyarch, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the multiplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
After sitting through a presentation that seemed dizzying at times with the amount of changes and la...
Multiplayer campaign and more
Whatever you think you know about the Call of Duty franchise is about to change. As a series that is often criticized for offering more of the same, Black Ops developer Treyarch has made every attempt to alter that mindset wi...
So little shooting
Activision's officially unveiling Call of Duty: Black Ops III on April 26, but it's not being secretive about the title. The latest teaser trailer outright states the game's name. That's not where the mystery lies.
No mo' FOMO
The time for teasing is over, as Bungie has revealed its plans for the next Destiny expansion, House of Wolves. A new NPC will be introduced called Petra Venj, who will deliver a bunch of Queen-based quests for the new s...
'No Guitar Hero in 2016'
Hey, remember when Activision released a Guitar Hero game every year, and in some cases, multiple times annually? Until Warriors of Rock killed off the franchise, of course.
Well now the series is back later this year with Gu...
Open beta on May 19
Heroes of the Storm, the newest major MOBA on the block, will launch June 2, Blizzard has confirmed. The launch will precede an open beta phase that will start on May 19, which precedes its lengthy alpha and closed beta phas...
If you suck, don't go for the stage dive
Just a few days after the trailer reveal, this video showed up going further into what makes Guitar Hero Live new. It's a long one, so if you're not able to sit through 34 minutes of video, Destructoid has you covered.
Rock Band 4 dev hopes to support ALL your old - and new - peripherals
Where are all your old Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band guitars now, eh? Stuffed under the couch? Collecting dusting the basement?
If you haven't thrown them away -- and I really, really hope you haven't thrown them away --...
More places for you to dance with strangers
Destiny fans have already uncovered new secrets sitting in the game's recent 1.1.2 content update.
While we already knew that there would be a new social space in The Reef, Reddit user ShdwFlm's backstage snooping has confirm...
