Early Access in two weeks
This new trailer for the sci-fi single-player survival game The Solus Project shows off a lot of new content, and confirms some details that will surely make more than just me happy.
Specifically, the developers co...
Haha, the current site is classic
I still remember buying Minecraft in 2009, and the original site really hasn't changed all that much. But Mojang (and thus, Microsoft) has really been making strides since the acquisition, finally releasing the game on W...
In addition to the officially confirmed amiibo dungeon for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, Nintendo has shared a few new features for the game this morning. As well as inventory management, the GamePad can also be ...
It's hella sweet
The last time I got a new phone, the Verizon rep asked me if I'd like to trade in my old phone for credit toward accessories -- specifically a case for it. I politely declined and she was shocked. "You mean you don't want a c...
While they set off fireworks
Not only did we find out today that the soon-to-be-released Firewatch is going to cost $19.99, but now we have our first full playthrough of day one in the game thanks to PlayStation Access.
Personally, I'm even m...
There's a little discount
February got here in a hurry, and that means Firewatch isn't far off.
Campo Santo's first-person, wilderness-set mystery game is coming to PlayStation 4, Linux, Mac, and Windows on February 9, 2016. It's going to be $19.99, n...
Voice acting equivalent of The Room
Some games just hand out answers to puzzles -- if you can even call them that -- with numbers or solutions written nearby. While the first-person adventure INFRA does this a bit, it certainly isn't holding your hand most...
Spike Chunsoft has just sent over word of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc's PC release date -- February 18. It'll be coming by way of Steam, and is priced at $29.99, with a 20% discount at launch, and a soundtrack. Addi...
Wall-to-wall shower scenes for me
I used to skip Sunday school every weekend I could to watch poorly localized episodes of Tekkaman and Robotech and hang out in my pajamas. I loved them, but even at the time something seemed off about them, stilted ...
Sunless Sea is one of those games I wanted to check out last year but never got around to. I guess I should have, because it showed up on a couple of our personal game of the year lists. This weekend, I have even less of an e...
Third-party support was off the chain on the Wii for a while, and that includes the amazing Zack & Wiki: Quest For Barbaros’ Treasure from Capcom. I mean truly, I can't say enough awesome things about this game...
Sci-fi talkie mystery hopes for sequel
Consortium is back with a Kickstarter campaign for Consortium: The Tower, a follow up to the 2014 original. In my review I said,
"It's a little rough -- with the most recent patch, I didn't experience any bugs, though some...
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...
