Just the first episode to start
Four episodes down, one to go. That's if, like Darren, you're playing Minecraft: Story Mode on something other than Wii U. For that port, you'll have to wait a few more days.
The first episode, The Order of the Stone, release...
I'm falling in love with Dragon's Dogma all over again with the PC port. It's not just the fact that it fixes the framerate issues of the console original, but the fact that the updated visuals make everything look new ...
Due next week on PC and PS4
Development for The Witness began back in 2008, and now, we're finally going to see the game in action next week when it launches on PC and PS4. But wait!
According to the ESRB, it's coming out on Xbox One as well at some poi...
The opposite of a foot fetish
The response to my review of Freedom Planet was pretty positive, as was the suggestion that I'd be reviewing some older Steam games we may have looked over, so here we are. Jotun slipped us by here at Destructoid when it released late last year, but I'm here to remedy that.
This is little game with big heart, big style, even bigger enemies, and strong female lead to boot.
Steve Zissou will outlive us all
Unlike many others out there, underwater environments tend to be some of my favorite areas in video games. So when something like The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human comes along which takes place entirely underwater, I ca...
Not your typical adventure
"I have no mouth, and I must scream" isn't just a profoundly cool phrase. It's the name of Harlan Ellison's short story (read it here!) about a malicious computer who endlessly tortures the world's few surviving humans. Ther...

Life is Strange, for the few problems it has, doesn’t shy away from dealing with some intensely personal and dark topics. Playing as a teenage girl in a residential school, one of those topics is, inevitably, bullying....
Seen at multiple retailers
The Witcher 3 -- am I right, guys?That's basically all you need to say before a back-patting ceremony ensues, congratulating one another for playing Geralt's latest adventure. It's pretty damn good, and with all of the sales ...
It's been updated with new writing
While combing through the wasteland that is my pre-holiday-break email, I happened upon a link to Infinite Fall and Finji's Longest Night from our beloved gift-giver Jonathan Holmes. I'm glad I did!
This is a short lead-in ...
What a weird episode. After the high energy of The Last Place You Look, this one slows down the action shortly into it, and it doesn't really pick back up until the very end, which feels like the end of a season. But then, th...
Better late than never
Vacation travel kept me from being able to get to the latest episode in Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode right away. I just finished it, and as always, I had my finger on the screenshot button the whole way through.
He won't pay your phone bill, though
Ron Gilbert, the writer and director of Secret on Monkey Island, is teaming up with Gary Winnick, the art director of the LucasArts games of yore, to create Thimbleweed Park. The Kickstarter began last year, and one of the ba...
More news in the new year
With just a couple weeks remaining the year, Below is not going to hit its previously announced 2015 release window, developer Capybara Games has confirmed with Game Informer.
"Below is indeed coming in 2016," Capy'...
Fun with thumbnails!
I wrote about Firewatch's topless teens, meaty hands, and mystery way, way back at the beginning of this year (wanna feel old!?).
The gorgeous, narrative driven game from artist Olly Moss, Mark of the Ninja designer&nbs...
For the 'Wither Storm Finale'
Minecraft: Story Mode: A Block and a Hard Place is gearing up to release next week, so today we get the requisite launch trailer for it. This episode is promised to be the "Wither Storm Finale," with the last episode in the s...
I really can wait to be king
The first episode of the newly minted King's Quest series really took me by surprise. While I had been loosely following it for years, I never expected it to be one of my favorite games of the year. The cast, the animati...
Releasing December 22
It's almost bizarre to think that the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode was out less than two months ago, and here we are gearing up for the fourth in the series. Episode Four, A Block and a Hard Place releases on PC on ...
Exhibit A: This trailer
Can a game like Aviary Attorney carve out a niche for itself? I'm hopeful!
This 19th century adventure starring a man who is a lawyer and also a bird intrigued enough people to earn funding through Kickstarter at the beginnin...
Next-gen house snooping coming soon
Gone Home was announced for consoles a while back, but with rumors that publisher Midnight City was on the verge of collapse, it was easy to guess that the console ports had been quietly dropped. Looks like those easy guesse...
Still not quite a mouse, but it's a'ight
When we learned at the PlayStation Experience keynote that Day of the Tentacle Remastered was releasing March 2016, I wrote that it had been twenty years since I had played the original. That would put me at the tender, still...
Old is new
Double Fine's sure working that nostalgia angle. At PlayStation Experience, Tim Schafer took the stage and revealed that the studio's working on a Full Throttle remake for PS4 and Vita. There's no word on a release date ...
Three part mini-series coming in 2016
It might not be The Walking Dead: Season 3, but an all new trailer for The Walking Dead: Michonne is better than nothing. The mini-series was first announced back in June and hasn't seen much publicity since then.
Rubble Without a Cause
It's been a long time coming since the first episode of King's Quest, which turned out better than many expected. Five months is a long time between episodes, especially when competitors like Telltale are generally maintain a...
Look at last
The third episode for Minecraft: Story Mode is out today, and it's actually not half bad. I think I took more screenshots this time around than in the first two episodes as a result.
Going through these after the fact, it's o...
Minecraft: Story Mode didn't impress me with its first two episodes. Aimed at young players and Minecraft super fans, its writing didn't have a whole lot going for it past its Saturday morning cartoon plot and series in-jokes...
Episodes 4 and 5 still aren't out
Republique is such a weird project. It was released on iOS in December of 2013, as an episodic series spanning five chapters. Episode 4 and 5 still have not been released to this day, but the franchise made the jump to PC, an...
After finishing the season finale for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, I had my suspicions that it was all setting up for an inevitable second season. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner co...
Primal Carnage: Extinction is coming to PS4s in Europe and Australasia next Tuesday, November 24, 2015.
Though the price has yet to be confirmed, the game - which hits PSN two weeks after the North American release - sells f...
Turing breaks his way onto consoles
Read Only Memories, the cyberpunk adventure inspired by Snatcher, will be making its way to consoles soon on PS4 and PS Vita, as announced today on the PlayStation Blog.
I reviewed Read Only Memories last month when it was re...
The Last Place You Look
This minecart just keeps on a-rollin' (whether we care about it or not). After having met up with and then subsequently lost track of Ellegaard and Magnus in Assembly Required, the team is now searching out the fourth member ...
