Sega will have Sonic Lost World, Castle of Illusion at E3

Sega's bringing five announced titles to E3 2013 and the big one is undoubtedly Sonic Lost World. It's especially weird for me to say that having played few if any modern Sonic titles outside of the wonderful All-Stars Racing...

Feel doubly fine with Adam WarRock's Psychonauts single photo
Feel doubly fine with Adam WarRock's Psychonauts single
by Tony Ponce

Asian sensation Adam WarRock is a pretty chill dude. Our own Tara Long of course loves him to pieces, but it was I who managed to score a brotastic fist bump at last year's Nerdapalooza in Orlando. He's so skilled, he can turn literally anything into hip hop -- hell, he made an entire EP based on the mockumentary show Parks and Recreation! How does he do it?

Adam has offered a new song for exclusive download on Destructoid. Using the beat from the Raz Fresco track "Phony Ones," he whipped up "Basic Braining," an homage to the other Raz, star of Double Fine's Psychonauts. If you've got love for the house that Tim Schafer built, I think you'll enjoy this track.

You can grab "Basic Braining" for free over here. Can ya dig it?

Evening, mates! If you're wondering why Max isn't posting tonight's episode, it's because a giant bird attacked him in the parking lot this morning. Or something else that makes sense. Thankfully, good samaritan Anthony Carb...

Double Fine announces Kickstarter for new strategy game photo
Double Fine announces Kickstarter for new strategy game
by Darren Nakamura

Double Fine made history last year with the Broken Age Kickstarter, bringing in over $3.3 million after asking fans to help fund it. Today, the industry darling developer announced a new Kickstarter campaign with hopes for a repeat performance.

Massive Chalice promises tactical battles similar to those found in X-COM or Final Fantasy Tactics, taking place over the course of many lifetimes. As a result, individual warriors will gain experience, age, and eventually die, but not before leaving behind offspring with similar traits.

As is often the case with Kickstarter games, no gameplay has been shown, but Double Fine's pedigree will likely carry this campaign to success with ease. As of this writing, only minutes after the launch of the campaign, Massive Chalice has already attained over $75,000 of its $725,000 goal.
