Review: Need for Speed: Rivals photo
Review: Need for Speed: Rivals
by Dale North

Like any good racer, the Need for Speed franchise never stops moving. They've come a long way since the early '90s, though the last few years' releases have been more about refinement of the formula than anything else, moving more towards an open world structure.

The latest in the franchise, Need for Speed: Rivals, takes a big step by going all-in on one mode that combines a single-player campaign with online multiplayer. The rest -- including the cops, the cars, and the crashing -- stay the same. In a sense, they've made it so players can jump in and go fast without having to worry about the details.

And it's all the better for it.

Opinion: The 3DS is the best system to get this year photo
Opinion: The 3DS is the best system to get this year
by Chris Carter

Since I tend to play a lot of games on a lot of different platforms, people sometimes turn to me and ask what console to buy. "Should I get a PS4? I heard that the Xbox One has this thing called 'DRM' that's bad." Or, "is the Wii U good? Should I get that over a next-gen system?"

All of these answers are generally tailored to the person, as I initially ask them where their genre interests lie, and make sure they're aware that the PC platform exists, and it's not nearly as expensive as they think.

But more often than not, I tend to go back to one heavy suggestion. One system that I think excels above the rest at this point in its development cycle. That system is the Nintendo 3DS.

Destructoid's HUGE panel coming to PAX Prime 2013
by Jim Sterling

Destructoid will be live in the house once again at PAX Prime, this time with a panel titled "The HUGE Evolution of Games Blogging." We'll be talking about the changes that have come to the way we talk about games, contending with AdBlock, and the rise of video coverage. We'll also be talking about how Destructoid itself has met these challenges. 

Niero Gonzalez, Hamza Aziz, Dale North, Jonathan Holmes and your old pal Jim Sterling will be on hand to talk about what we do, why we're doing it, and what we're doing in future. 

If you want to see your favorite robot's slaves at PAX Prime, you can witness our HUGE panel at 2pm on Sunday, at the Pegasus Theater during the show. See you there!
