Will Bethesda hurry up and announce Fallout 4? photo
Will Bethesda hurry up and announce Fallout 4?
by Nic Rowen

GDC is here, and as is the case with any big trade show or splashy industry event, I'll be on tenterhooks waiting to hear the one piece of news I care about -- When is Fallout 4 going to happen? For years I've expected the announcement “any day now” while Bethesda remains stubbornly tight lipped with every passing E3 and VGA ceremony. Still, like the child of a deadbeat father, I hold out hope that this time they'll surprise us and come through.

It's important to me because Fallout 3 taught me how to love open-world games. I thought I already did. Games like Oblivion and the GTA series were considered favorites even then. But in retrospect, I had a fondness for those games. An appreciation for them born out of respect to the jaw-dropping technical execution and the brass balls of the teams that designed them. When I actually played them, I was often a stressed out save-scummer, constantly scheming on the best way to tackle the game and maintain a perfect record. It wasn't until Fallout 3 took me, hand-in-irradiated-hand, on a guided tour of its desolate wasteland that I really learned to love.

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns seeks to redefine MMO endgame progression photo
Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns seeks to redefine MMO endgame progression
by Chris Carter

Guild Wars 2 is an ambitious project. While ArenaNet's initial offering of Guild Wars was more of a social dungeon crawler than an MMO (the company called it a CORPG, or competitive online role-playing game), the sequel was a bonafide massive experience.

The kicker? ArenaNet was still able to cut out the subscription fee, effectively making Guild Wars 2 buy-to-play and allowing players to return at any time.

Here we are over two years later with the Heart of Thorns expansion on the horizon, and the developer continues to find ways to innovate.

Samus and Sagat: When Sagat met Samus photo
Samus and Sagat: When Sagat met Samus
by Jonathan Holmes

It's highly probable that an alien race, dwelling somewhere in outer space, has developed technology the likes of which we could only dream of, but lack something we consider mundane. For example, what if a race of magical bird-people from another planet had the ability to transport organic matter through thin air without any loss of quality, but had not yet discovered how to do the same thing with abstract content like "data"? How would they feel if the learned about the Internet? Better yet, how would they feel when they learned what most people use the Internet for? What would they think of terms like "social justice warrior," "lol," and "shitposting"? This special "Flashback to 19XX" episode of Samus and Sagat intends to answer those questions and more. 

This episode also marks the third time that Maddy Myers and I have gotten together to shoot Samus and Sagat, and things already feel different. It looks like we're through the "getting to know you" phase and already way off into the "drunk off each other's company so God knows what's going to happen next" phase. That definitely makes for a different kind of show. My acting in this episode is... really something. I'm not sure exactly what that something is, but I know it's true.

I also know it's true that making a collage of Maddy's various facial expressions is a lot of fun, and I hope to have the opportunity to do that again soon. We've got that collage in a wallpaper size right here, per the request of a few of my Twitter followers, so enjoy!

by Mr Andy Dixon

You Dtoiders have been on an absolute tear lately! Not only are you kicking out awesome new community projects at breakneck speeds, but you're doing so with an enthusiasm and positivity that I haven't seen in years. Seriously, I am so f*cking proud of you all I just want to pick you up and keep squeezing you forever! (But I won't, because we all know how Of Mice and Men ends.)

Anyway, you're doing a great job, and I hope you keep it up! Here's some highlights from the last month.

Experience Points .06: No More Heroes
by Ben Davis

Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a part of the soundtrack, a gameplay mechanic, a line of dialogue, or anything else about the game that is particularly noteworthy and/or awesome.

This series will no doubt contain spoilers for the games being discussed, so keep that in mind if you plan on playing the game for the first time.

This entry is all about No More Heroes. Feel free to share some of your own favorite things about the game in the comments!

Christine Love's sexy trailer gets the family-friendly treatment! photo
Christine Love's sexy trailer gets the family-friendly treatment!
by Mike Cosimano

We like to keep things family-friendly here at Destructoid Dot Com, so you can imagine the quandary we found ourselves saddled with once Christine Love dropped a steamy NSFW trailer for her new game My Twin Brother Made Me Crossdress As Him And Now I Have To Deal With A Geeky Stalker And A Domme Beauty Who Want Me In A Bind. We love to cover games both ridiculous names and boob, but we always have to think of the children!

Of course, it was Mike Cosimano who came up with a solution. "What if it was Transformers?" he said, referring to his life in general. And thus, like Athena springing from the mind of Zeus, 'Ladykiller in a Bind [feat. Transformers]' was born!

Enjoy it, or don't. Please understand.
