Another creepy clown visage is now available in the PlayStation 3 version of Payday 2, and one fans of Sony should be well familiar with. Sweet Tooth, the lovably psychotic burning clown thing from the Twisted Metal ...

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Yes, it's one of those episodes where we celebrate one game getting it right and not stuffing everything up. Speaking of stuffing, Jim at last unveils the Dragon Dildo ... and does things with it. Terrible things.

Review: PAYDAY 2  photo
Review: PAYDAY 2
by Jim Sterling

Nobody could ever claim PAYDAY: The Heist wasn't a good idea. Tapping into every human's secret desire to be part of a beautifully orchestrated, flamboyantly daring theft of grand proportions was a masterstroke, and while the execution was spotty, the overall result was a ton of fun. 

Overkill is having a second crack of the whip with PAYDAY 2, clutching its clever idea jealously while surrounding it with much more content. A deeper leveling system, greater customization options, and a ton of new heists are all on offer.

The execution is, once again, spotty, but the result is, once again, a ton of fun.

It's time to pull off the ultimate heist as PayDay 2 arrives next week. It'll be out first on August 13 for Steam on PC, then August 16 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

There's a little Hotline Miami in Payday 2

There's a special homage to Hotline Miami in Payday 2! You can purchase a pig mask called "The Hog" and it has some familiar sounding text associated with it too. Yeah that's about it. Just a neat little thing. Anyway, we're...

Payday 2 Collector's Edition comes with a real mask

The North American collector's edition for Payday 2 is notable in that it's priced at a reasonable $59.99. That, and it includes a wearable mask, which is a pretty good bonus as far as these things tend to go. There's also a...

Payday 2 blew away my expectations, stole my heart photo
Payday 2 blew away my expectations, stole my heart
by Steven Hansen

Payday 2 feels like one of the most ambitious sequels in recent memory. I was a fan of Payday: The Heist, which in and of itself is high praise. Normally I can't be bothered to play online multiplayer and I've had first-person shooter fatigue for years, but Payday clicked with me. The focus on carefully orchestrated cooperation combined with the game's sometimes vicious level of challenge against near overwhelming odds is exhilarating. 

We knew Payday 2 was going to be much improved, given that it's receiving a retail release in addition to digital, and we knew that new elements were going to be added, like stealth possibilities. Still, I wasn't prepared for how much has improved. Talking to director David Goldfarb and then playing for myself left me pleasantly surprised and wanting to play more.

New Payday 2 trailer goes all sneaky mode

I never got around to playing PAYDAY: The Heist, as it ended up being one of the victims of my every growing backlog. I might just have to make up for that with the sequel though. The latest trailer for Payday 2 is now up, s...

PAYDAY 2 trailer here for the bank’s money, yours too

PAYDAY: The Heist always reminds me of Michael Mann’s brilliant, taut tale of thievery, Heat. The opening of The Dark Knight reminded me of Heat, too; a more somber Point Break, given the creepy clown masks. And now PA...

[This is the fourth in a series of five guest blogs from OVERKILL Software creative director Simon Vicklund about the forces that stand between you and incalculable wealth in Payday: The Heist, coming soon to PlayStation Network. Read previous installments [1,2,3] and stay tuned to Destructoid as we continue this series up to the release of Payday on October 18th]

Hi again! Today we're going to talk about the Bulldozer. That's this guy.

He is called the Bulldozer because he can smash through any defense, demolish the opposition and crush all hope. The need to "tag" certain enemies so that your teammates can easily see them and help you in taking them out, is never more urgent than when a Bulldozer crashes your party!
