Seems pretty legit!
[Update: We received an email from Mirada Studios demanding we pull this story. A representative cited inaccuracies, but also confirmed the story was breaking a non-disclosure agreement. As nobody at Destructoid signed an N...
Who needs to be surprised this E3?
Electronic Arts is adding to its holiday lineup (sports, Battlefront) with a new Need for Speed, according to EA financials. The company decided to chill on yearly Need for Speeds after going from developers Black Box to Crit...
Japan's gaming giants lumber off
As a business, Sega is doing fine. It has two mobile games that, on their own, each turn over $5 million a month. That's to say nothing of Sega's succesful non-gaming businesses. The company's projected revenue forecast on th...
PC at E3? Well I'll be!
PC Gamer has just announced, in partnership with AMD, that a "PC Gaming Show" will be held at E3 this year. It will be on June 16 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, to be streamed on Twitch.
Demo gets camera, combat and targeting tweaks, main game gets difficulty settings
Ok. Final Fantasy XV isn't skipping E3. It'll only pay lip service, though.
The above Final Fantasy XV Active Time Report, which is helpfully subtitled in English, sees director Hajime Tabata and marketing manager Akio Ofuji...
It'll be a busy E3
E3 press conferences are traditionally held by the three big console manufacturers. However, videogame publishers have been known to host their own when their upcoming line-ups call for it. Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are the...
Sometimes what isn't said is most important
Bethesda, creator of the Elder Scrolls and the newer series of Fallout games, has sent out invites for its E3 press conference that takes place on Sunday, June 14. Pictured on the invite are reserved seats for chara...
Unless it delays everything, please understand!
After the recent announcement that Zelda for Wii U wouldn't be releasing in 2015, people all around the Internet have been losing their collective minds screaming that the Wii U is dead when really, it is anything but.
So join me as I refresh your memory and get you back on the Nintendo hype train for 2015.
We're talkin' E3 already, huh?
February snow's still on the ground.
All eyes are trained squarely on the rapidly impending GDC.
Lo, Bethesda comes out of nowhere and wants to talk about E3!
Los Angeles is still so many months away; just settle down.
Flexible pricing models were mentioned
Remember last year when Microsoft said it was rebooting Phantom Dust? Me neither!
It's been a while since we've heard about the project, but now we have some juicy details compliments of creative director Ken Lobb in a recent...
Whatever the hell that is
We don't attend videogame trade shows for their "PR impact," but it is interesting to hear that gamescom is gaining on E3 as far as that measurement is concerned. Analytics company ICO Partners says that the European event is...
They would have to have been crazy not to
In a move that should shock absolutely no one, it appears that Sony actually did rewrite bits and pieces of its E3 2013 presentation after witnessing Microsoft's own announcements crash and burn.

E3 2014 winners announced
The Game Critics Awards for E3 2014, as determined by 29 media outlets including Destructoid, have been announced. After seeing the nominations, it's no surprise that Turtle Rock's one-versus-four multiplayer shooter Evolve c...
Filmmakers offer praise for MGSV and look to the future
It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...
Itagaki's insane multiplayer Wii U game
It's weird clicking a mature content warning on a video on Nintendo's YouTube with Mario staring innocently at me. But the collaboration between Itagaki and Nintendo for The Devil's Third, revived as a Wii U exclusive, is we...
PS4 was the platform with the most nominees, barely
With E3 2014 in the rear-view mirror, it's time to see which publishers and games impressed the Game Critics judges the most. The Game Critics Awards are handed out after judges from 39 outlets vote on titles that were a...
...in under 2 minutes!
Sure, you could go watch the whole half-hour demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we saw at E3, but then you don't get to look at my pretty face. Also, an animal shows up at the end of this video! Can you guess what it is?
Live with Treehouse
Nintendo's decision to let its Treehouse staff stream games throughout E3 2014 was smart. It gave those of us at home extended looks at the latest 3DS and Wii U titles, let us hear from developers themselves, and overall hel...
He checks out the big three again, mostly
Conan O'Brien has once again visited E3 to take a look at a selection of games, and addition to the jokes, you can also get a look at some gameplay that wasn't previously available. Conan checks out Sunset Overdrive, Entwine...
Max and Bill attempt to describe procedural generation
Of all the games we saw at E3, No Man's Sky is probably the most difficult to describe without sounding like we just came down from a mescaline trip. A procedurally-generated universe filled with millions of planets? Each with new and unique flora and fauna? Spaceships that shoot lasers? This is definitely a high concept game. Hopefully, the final product delivers, because it sounds cool as hell.
Witch game won your hearts?
Last week, we asked you to weigh in on your favorite games of E3 2014. And weigh in you did! There were approximately eleventy bajillion votes cast and hand-counted by yours truly, making this one of the most popular E3 award...
Like Team Fortress 2, except with hulking, massive spaceships
The reveal trailer for Dreadnought pushes a lot of the right buttons for science fiction fans. It puts potential players into the right frame of mind and really sets up the scale of the endeavor. Combatants will not be dartin...
And then he said, that's not my podiatrist, that's my mother!
You saw our E3 2014 Game of the Show. It was Metal Gear Solid V. Saved you a click.
Now, it's a good one. In fact, I wrote about why it was our Game of the Show in that very post you just didn't click. But E3 was full o...
'Whatever kind of baggage you carry around with you, you'll be able to express that in the game'
Nestled in a parking lot across the street from the convention center in Los Angeles was Devolver Digital's phalanx of air conditioned campers. The publisher had a good mixture of highly anticipated titles like Hotline Miami ...
And our game of the show winner is ...
E3 was all about the games this year. With the console launches out of the way, game developers have been able to focus on making great games, and we saw a ton of that at E3 2014 this year.
We shared with you our nominees for game of the show and about a dozen other categories. Now it's time to find out what games have won our Best of E3 2014 winners!
Thanks for following our coverage!
One of the fine gentleman helping us with our video coverage at E3 this year was Michael Jordan, and he put out the call for requests for things to do on the show floor. Here he is doing some of those for our enjoyment. One of you made him run and do push-ups! Poor guy.
Please don't die from kissing that GameCube controller, Michael.
And leaves you wanting more
One of the smaller games at E3 left the biggest impression on me. Titan Souls is a Ludum Dare entrant that was picked up by Devolver Digital to publish on PC, PS4, and PS Vita -- sort of an appropriate underdog's st...
Project Giant Robot IRL
I've always found Nintendo to be endearing, but that feeling has grown stronger ever since the company started doing its Nintendo Direct presentations and silly skits like this.
We first met Fils-a-Mech earlier this year and...
Don't touch Willie...
That's the coolest SEGA logo ever. I've always liked when a logo is altered to tonally match whatever it's slapped on.
This Alien: Isolation trailer doesn't divulge too much, which is good for a horror title, thou...
