Kingdom Under Fire II gets lengthy PS4 gameplay trailer

Kingdom Under Fire II, announced six years ago as a 360 game, is still still alive and feeling even more still alive with a proper PlayStation Blog post talking about the PS4 version, and a large scale raid video with scorpions, knights, guns, flamethrowers, and tits with super low nipples (3:15).

Battlefield Hardline beta weapons and gadgets unlocked

Are you playing the Battlefield Hardline beta? I did, briefly, but I should give it another chance. Especially now that all of the currently implemented weapons and gadgets have been unlocked. (The full game will of course ha...

Mega64's latest spoof takes on Early Access games in a hilarious way

At this point, I'm pretty much a fan of whatever content Mega64 decides to create. After the Game Gurlz series, I was down for life. And now with the release of this "Beta Man" video, I'm doubled over with laughter ready to ...

We've got 10,000 codes for the Defense Grid 2 beta! (UPDATE) photo
We've got 10,000 codes for the Defense Grid 2 beta! (UPDATE)
by Mr Andy Dixon

Update 2: Codes all gone! If you're a Huge member and didn't get yours, email me and I'll send you one. Everyone else, better luck next time!

Update: Damn, those codes went FAST! Luckily, we've just received another batch of 10,000! This time around, 9,000 are open to the public, and 1,000 are reserved just for our Huge members. If you missed out, think about becoming a subscriber now!

Original story: Our good friends at Hidden Path Entertainment have hooked us up with a truckload of beta keys for their upcoming sci-fi tower defense game Defense Grid 2 to hand out to the Dtoid community!

Following on the success of the 2008 original, DG2 looks to expand on the original in many ways, including user-created content, an updated pathing system, and some very pretty visuals. To try the beta out for yourself, just head on over to our code giveaways page and click the button! (You must be signed in to your Destructoid account first, obviously.) Then, code in hand, just load up Steam and activate the code there. Easy peasy!

Have fun!

The Battlefield Hardline beta will come to Xbox One eventually

Last week, fans had the chance to sign up and play the Battlefield Hardline beta on the PC and PS4 -- which leaves one odd console out -- the Xbox One. Naturally everyone was wondering why the beta wasn't available on th...

Valve updates Steam Early Access FAQ with warning that some games won't be released

When you purchase a game from Steam Early Access, there's always a risk you take that the game you put down that hard-earned money on may not actually release in full. Sure, that doesn't always happen, but often enough that V...

Magicka: Wizard Wars hits open beta & you should play it

I am not into MOBAs, but I have had a blast every time I've played Magicka: Wizard Wars. Probably because you could murder sheep into a blood cloud and people didn't yell obscenities at me. And because Magicka is fun and sur...

Get your Magicka: Wizard Wars Early Access keys here!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Codes all gone! Hope you got yours!]

Our friends at Paradox Interactive have hooked us up with a bunch of Early Access Steam keys for their upcoming MOBA Magicka: Wizard Wars, and we're handing them out to the Dtoid community!

We've got a batch of codes locked and loaded for our Huge members, plus another 2,500 open to any and all. Huge members, click here to snag yours! The rest of you can claim yours right here! Assuming you were quick enough to the punch, just take your code over to Steam for redemption. Magicka goes into open beta on May 27th, so this should give you plenty of time to get your wands wet before the rest of the world comes flooding in.

Have fun! And please do let us know in the comments how the game is. Not already one of our Huge members? You should really consider signing up! They get automatic entry into all contests, early access to beta keys like this, ad-free browsing, and more. It's pretty great!

How do you feel about betas for games with long time commitments?

It's crazy what can be considered a "beta" these days. Often times, betas are nothing but glorified demos, providing very little in terms of actual stress testing and used as more of a marketing tool. Sometimes I really miss ...

Ain't no party like a SpyParty

In 2010, Anthony Burch explained why SpyParty, though "two years away from release," was pretty rad. Four years later and a lot of that prototype art is still in SpyParty's first trailer, though it also shows one of the fina...
