Enough military speak to sink a fleet
Halo 5: Guardians is on the horizon, and so 343 Industries has given us a peek of the game’s opening cinematic.
It’s got your usual Halo stuff: Covenant, people in absurdly big armour, and lots of holograms. The ...
Skill shots and domination streaks
Oh hey, are you itching to see more footage of Cliff Bleszinski's upcoming futuristic sci-fi shooter LawBreakers already? Well, thanks to the official LawBreakers Twitter account this weekend, we have a whole bunch of new pie...
Gameplay trailer shows four classes
Two days ago we got the first reveal for Cliff Bleszinski's new arena shooter LawBreakers. Today we get a brief look at the gameplay and if I had to describe it with one word, that word would be "motion."
Each of the four cla...
Releasing next year
Cliff Bleszinski (Unreal Tournament, Gears of War) and Arjan Brussee (Guerrilla Games co-founder) have been off building something called Project BlueStreak at their new studio Boss Key Productions. It's a futuristic first-p...
Remember the kid named Turok?
Remember when Acclaim offered $10,000 to parents who named their kid "Turok?" I still get a good laugh out of that whenever I think of the series.
Beyond that legacy they were actually fun little shooters, and now both Turok&...
Voice-controlled zombie survival
This seems like one of those "Wouldn't it be cool if...?" ideas. It is, in fact, rather cool.
RealmPictures organized a live-action first-person shooter and "invited unsuspecting people on Chatroulette, Omegle, and Skype to t...
The number 'very, very low'
The insanely funded space game Star Citizen has been offering refunds to players following constant delays and brewing disenchantment. Its executive producer recently quit the project, the first-person shooter mode was delaye...
What more could you want out of games?
"You are a seagull. A beautiful, fragile seagull. You poop uncontrollably. Your purpose is to poop on things."
Fantastic! I'm always clamoring for more games where you get to really feel what it's like to be an animal, and th...
Created by Bad Robot, of all companies
Ready for another off-the-wall Team Fortress 2 update? After the addition of bumper cars from last Halloween, it seems anything is possible with this game. Now the multiplayer shooter is getting another shot in the arm with a...
Take it slow and steady
Superhot has been the talk of the town ever since it was first shown off to the world. A first person shooter where the action slows to a near stop unless you're currently moving, the game's visual style and odd momentum are ...
Check out some gameplay
Call of Duty: Black Ops III runs the risk of falling into the trappings of some of the previous bad games in the series, but as always, I have faith in Treyarch, the best developer in the franchise's history. Even if the...
Dev responds to #BringHalo5SplitScreenBack
Halo 5: Guardians' franchise development director has hit back against criticism that the newest instalment of the shooter will not feature split-screen co-op play.
They done switched wallets
We already knew how aggressive Sony has been with their heist of Call of Duty from Microsoft's clutches, with the new DLC timed exclusivity deal and an enhanced presence in the eSports arena, but Sony is going the extra ...
Hasn't been sold for months
If you play Destiny, you know the Gjallarhorn. It's a rocket launcher that fires a very powerful shot, and then extremely powerful (tracking) cluster bombs after it hits, doing solar damage the entire time. You know it b...
Published by Payday developer
If you didn't catch last year's John Wick, it's a pretty great flick, and a rare well-choreographed one (as far as American productions go). Its lead character has already crossed over into Starbreeze's Payday 2 (above); the ...
Demo skill tree detailed, too
If you've missed dual-wielding in Killing Floor 2, I've got good news for you. When the Incinerate N' Detonate content update comes out, you'll be able to buy dual 9mm pistols just like in the first game. Instead of just...
There'll be an open beta too!
Battleborn will release worldwide on February 9, 2016.
The news was confirmed by 2K in this awesome new (and CAPSLOCK-HEAVY) trailer, which also announced four new player characters.
The roster will include Ambra (a pri...
Also, it's a stupid game
I noticed this watching Homefront: The Revolution's trailer live at gamescom: there are a ton of convenient, incredibly sturdy corrugated metal ramps, bridges, and walkways in occupied United States. It seems like 40% of the...
Today at gamescom we got our first trailer for Fighter Squadron, a twenty person dogfight mode for Star Wars Battlefront.
You can pilot a bunch of different ships, including the Millenium Falcon, and there will be twenty AI fighters flying in the skies alongside the twenty human players.
Yep, this looks pretty cool. I'm glad we finally have this confirmed for the game.
But not necessarily better
Sometimes when you see a game at a preview event, you don't even want to write about it. You just know that what was shown wasn't a good representation of the final game. Malicious intent isn't always to blame, either; there ...
Did John Malkovich just call me a bitch?
So here we are with the Reckoning DLC pack, the last add-on for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after Havoc, Ascendance, and Supremacy. All in all, it's been a great ride, and slowly but surely, each map pack has improved upon the last.
It's great then that Advanced Warfare is going out with a bang with its best DLC yet.
"That's...that's where we are!!!"
[pulls pud over close ups of lil flags on the uniforms]
Can you feel the excitement?
Guerrilla warfare shooter Homefront: The Revolution is getting an exclusive multiplayer beta this winter on Xbox One. Until then, watch some propaganda about our faceless Korean overlords.
Playable at gamescom
[Update: In an email with Destructoid, a Hi-Rez representative confirmed that Paladins will be free to play, but the developer is "still working out the specifics." To prognosticate for a bit, I would personally guess the mon...
Just like pizza rolls
We're approaching Killing Floor 2's Incinerate N' Detonate content update (I've been saying this for too long, but it's closer every day), and Tripwire Interactive has shelled out a few more details for us.
Man, Infection is great. I remember when my group of friends used to manually play it before it was officially a "thing," and when it became a thing, we played it even more. 343 Industries has confirmed that it may return to ...
Time is on my side, yes it is
Pitch: Mirror's Edge and Max Payne had a baby who must shoot its way out of an Ikea.
Destructoid's been following SuperHot since it got funded in record time back in 2013. Yesterday, a new gameplay ...
The catacombs, specifically
While we still don't have a date on the Incinerate N' Detonate content update (personally hoping for late next month), Tripwire Interactive has teased an upcoming map: Catacombs. Instead of being beneath the Burning Paris map...
New screenshots of Doom (2016)
We're not at QuakeCon 2015, but folks who are can play the new Doom multiplayer. Early impressions have been mostly positive, though it sounds like hands-on opportunities are brief.
Oh well. At least we have this cool spooky scary skeleton wallpaper and some screenshots.
Register while you still can
I forgot that Wolfenstein: The New Order included (eventual) access to the Doom beta. At QuakeCon 2015, Bethesda said it plans to pick PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players from that pool to try out the multiplayer alpha "i...
