There's so much to talk about in the first minute or two alone.
Going in on mechanical Apartheid. Sexy leather pants. Jensen's spiky ass designer facial hair (and skull hair). The fucking Illuminati!!! A game that isn't piss...
'Basketball with guns'
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and virtual reality -- those were the two things, by far, I most enjoyed at this year's E3. Steven did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the former, so now it's on me to ...
Preview: Metroid Prime: Blast Ball
Ah, young, handsome Zack Furniss. Relatively new to Destructoid and attending his first E3 for the site, Zack was wide-eyed and hopeful. He imagined a world of Metroid Prime 4 or Super-er Metroid and took his e3thusiasm to d...
I was beefing a bit with Rise of the Tomb Raider for its heavily scripted sequences in which you hold forward on the analog stick as the game just sort of nonthreateningly happens around you (except for when a brutal cutscen...
Space is the place
The Solus Project is a "single-player survival game by Teotl Studios (The Ball, Unmechanical) and Grip Games, coming to PC and Xbox One in early 2016." It basically sounds like the upcoming Matt Damon movie The Martian. Dead...
Pretty much sums it up
I need you darling Come on set the tone If you feel you're falling Won't you let me know Oh-oh-oh-oh-ooh Oh-oh-oh-oh-ooh

Xbox green, amiibo, nipples and more

What a year
It's the moment you've all been waiting for: the time to vote for your favorite game of E3!
Click below and make your selection, then tell us about it in the comments! There's certainly no shortage of AMAZING games to choose from this year!
Zip it good
Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash for the 3DS seemingly came out of nowhere and captured our hearts, or at the very least mine.
Nintendo describes it as a "whipping platformer," which is a phrase I'm not familiar with. But after playing, ...
Definitive version of NFS
The upcoming Need for Speed doesn't have a subtitle because it wants to be the definitive game in the series, according to Craig Sullivan of Ghost Games. The developers have cherry picked the best parts of the previous subtit...
Genei Ibun Roku #FE
It is almost as difficult to discuss Genei Ibun Roku #FE as it is to fit it into a headline. The JRPG was borne from what was previously "Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblemi," but turned into "an entirely new experience" that ...
This is not a gallery
Who had the best E3 booth this year? From a media viewpoint, I'd say it had to be Nintendo. The open plan allowed the fans to channel their excitement in the middle instead of having to elbow through to enjoy the games. The p...
Just set it free and dance!
It's been months since the Investigation Team cracked the case and life is getting back to normal. That is, until members of Rise Kujikawa's J-pop group suddenly go missing. And, surprise, surprise: The rescue mission brings ...
The Vita isn't dead! Unless it's PS4
As is always the case after a Gravity Rush 2-free show goes by, the lack of Gravity Rush 2 at E3 this year was a bummer, even after the report six months ago that it was, "in earnest development."
With Sony skipping gamescom ...
Sony did pretty dang well with its press conference this year, but one area where it was sorely lacking is Vita support. The closest we got was World of Final Fantasy, which is also coming to PlayStation 4, and the furthest ...
A critical success?
I was supposed to Dungeon Master a session of Dungeons & Dragons tonight, but that post-E3 fatigue comes in hard. So why not tell you about my hands-on session with n-Space's Sword Coast Legends, a new asymmetri...
Interviewing developers can sometimes feel like pulling teeth. For example, when I spoke to Nier producer Yosuke Saito and director Taro Yoko about their game the other day, the pair spent a good portion of the interview dodg...
An interview with the RPG's creators
Nier isn't the sort of game you would expect to get a sequel, but that's exactly what's happening.
Square Enix surprised (and delighted) folks the world over when it announced the new project at E3. That news alone would...
...bet it gets sweaty in there
E3 is over. But before we get back to our normal routines, check out these steamy booth attendants.
Nintendo really have nailed yarn
While I was a huge fan of Kirby's Epic Yarn on the Wii, it was never a game I could really recommend that people play. The gameplay was overly simple, it was tough to actually die and the art style, while beautiful, really su...
Launches on PC, Mac, and PS4 in 2016
One of my favorite types of games from back in the day was the side-scrolling beat-'em-up. Though the sub-gene has sorta evolved into more standard and narrative-based action games, I still feel there's more to be done with t...
Releasing on PC and Mac in spring
In recent years, Kickstarter has opened the doors for a lot of developers looking to make things happen. It's a real pleasure to see titles that would've never been greenlit by publishers find an audience willing to put up ca...
Director explains how they came to be
Nier is a game of extremes. For all its strengths, it has as many weaknesses.
One of the roughest elements of the experience is fishing. The whole thing is poorly implemented and just as badly explained. And one of them wasn'...
Releasing September 22 for PC and PS4
Even though it doesn't seem that long ago, it's been five years since a group of indie developers struck it big with the release of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The game became a hit with players looking for...
And, uh, 40 minutes of footage!
I'm back home from E3 2015 thanks to a too-early flight. I can safely watch this 40-minute demonstration of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain without any guilt trips from Steven. Yes!
Straight away, "While it is true that...
And that's a very good thing
[Here's a guest editorial from Matthew Razak, Editor-in-Chief of Flixist, and former Destructoid staff. You may remember him as Cowzilla. It's nice to have him back.]
This year as I sat at home watching press events from all ...
TL;DR: it ain't happening yet
Hoping backwards compatibility might be heading to the PlayStation 4 too?
Talking to Eurogamer, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said Xbox's backwards-compatibility announcement was "surprising" and intro...
Virtual Boy's the face on his knocker
Seemingly still haunted by the rattling, wailing ghost of the Virtual Boy, Nintendo of America's President Reggie Fils-Aimé has ruled out the company picking a side in the growing virtual reality war.
In an i...
Wish you were her!

Larger breasts are easier to work with
Senran Kagura is known for its large breasted women, but the series is tapped far as size goes.
"If they got any bigger than this (he points to the screen where a particularly busty Estival Versus character is leaning toward ...
