Already done everything in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Try rolling everywhere

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a short game. After you have a good feel for what you're doing, you can run it over and over, experimenting all the way. Eventually, you'll know it like the back of your hand (assumi...

Cha-ching: It now pays to create content for non-Valve games on Steam Workshop

To date, some 1,500 users have earned a collective $57 million from Valve for creating custom in-game content for titles like Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Up until now, only the company's tit...

Aion update looks to ease the devil's RNG

I have a dirty little not-so-secret secret to tell you: I was a GM for Aion for about two years. What did I learn in all that time? That gamers can be the most gracious and little pieces of shit on the planet Earth. One of th...

Dying Light riffs on Destiny's loot cave

Destiny players have gone four months now without the comforting tedium of the loot cave -- a dark abyss that would yield decent gear drops in return for shooting at it for hours on end. Understandably, Bungie said that'...

Starbound update includes new race, new combat, new universe

Wow. It has been a long time. I thought that maybe I had missed a stable update somewhere along the line, but by Chucklefish's own admission, this is the first one since last March. To take a step back, development on Starbo...

The Magic Circle tackles game development with clever satire photo
The Magic Circle tackles game development with clever satire
by Alessandro Fillari

You ever wonder what it's like to be a character in a videogame? Most people would think of something pleasant like Mario or Sonic the Hedgehog, not someone from Resident Evil or Silent Hill. But what would it be like to be in a game that's currently in development? One that's constantly in flux, similar to the classic Daffy Duck cartoon Duck Amuck. Would you still be you one year from now after several changes have been made? And who the hell is making all these changes?

That's a scenario former developers from Arkane Studios and Irrational Games want to tackle. At PAX Prime 2014, the developers of the newly-formed studio Question brought an early build of The Magic Circle, a game within a game. Players got to experience the results of a chaotic game development period in all its gory details as they tried to set things right. It made quite an impression at the Indie Mega Booth, with attendees calling it "punk" and a neat "retro" title.

We've been keeping our eye on this title ever since. Given special access to the current beta build of The Magic Circle, Destructoid had the opportunity to experience a sizable chunk of Question's upcoming existentialist adventure title.

Dead or Alive 5 will make up for its PC delay with 28 free costumes photo
Dead or Alive 5 will make up for its PC delay with 28 free costumes
by Jordan Devore

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round won't hit its original February 17, 2015 release on PC, as Koei Tecmo has pushed the game to March 30 "[i]n order to provide you with the best possible experience..."

To that end, the company is giving away the Halloween 2013 costume set to everyone who buys Last Round on Steam. That's 28 outfits, many of them predictably scandalous.

Frankly, I've got a feeling the port won't be without its issues, delay or no delay, but let's shelve that thought until launch. At the very least, the PC version of Last Round will not support online multiplayer right away -- that's supposed to arrive "within three months of release."

But then again, mods. They're going to escalate quickly.

Samurai Gunn gets free big update, Mac release

Samurai Gunn is great. It's a mainstay in my living room, especially with the backwards compatible PS1 taking a dive (no more convenient Bushido Blade). I also gave it a 2014 game of the year award even though...

Witcher 3 may have 'Insanity' mode, deletes your save upon death

I've always been fascinated with permadeath options in games. Witcher 3 might have a doozy. Witcher 3 senior game designer Damien Monnier and level designer Miles Tost recently streamed the game on Twitch and hosted...

Review: Dying Light photo
Review: Dying Light
by Chris Carter

As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest.

It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.

League of Legends' Curse of the Sad Mummy video is depressing

People often chide the League of Legends series for having a silly story, but as a player I dig the character fluff. Amumu has always been one of my favorites -- a sad mummy boy who just wants to find out who he really is. In this official music video from Riot Games, you can get a glimpse into the depressing life of Amumu. Like the studio's past efforts, it's actually pretty good.

Knight Squad was the most fun I had at PAX South photo
Knight Squad was the most fun I had at PAX South
by Brett Makedonski

If you were to take booths' popularity at PAX South and plot them on a heat map, most of the obvious candidates would stick out. Twitch would be red hot, as it constantly had a flurry of people swarming to watch their favorite streamers. Dreadnought would be lit up too, because it was one of the largest displays and the crowd seemed to take a liking to it.

But, there would be one outlier far back among the indie titles. Knight Squad, made by Chainsawesome Games, had a constant throng of people mulling about at all times. You wouldn't expect it given the location, but it was a party back there. Once you had a crack at the game, you'd understand why -- because Knight Squad is an incredibly fun multiplayer game.

Capcom: 'No plans' to release Dragon's Dogma Online in the West

Dragon's Dogma Online sounded sketchy from its the free-to-play scheme and microtransactions angle. But I'll give anything a shot once, and who knows -- maybe it could have been great, right?Well we probably won't get the cha...

Poppin' with hunies: My virtual dates in HuniePop photo
Poppin' with hunies: My virtual dates in HuniePop
by Brittany Vincent

I've been following HuniePop for a very long time.

HuniePop is a dating sim/puzzle game created by HuniePot, an independent studio. It's available now for purchase via Steam and other distributors in both censored and uncensored versions. It's colorful and raunchy, and I've spent a lot of time with it over the past day or so after purchasing a copy for myself. 

After completing a couple of girls' dating paths, I've come to the conclusion that I rather enjoy it. So, with the dearth of concrete information out there on the game and articles quick to judge due to some objectionable content, I've decided to bring you this piece, which seeks to explain and narrate my time with the game.

Second Life is serious business

The most shocking thing about this video may be the fact that Second Life is still apparently a thing. I mean, it's 2015 and there are plenty of other creepy hamlets of the Internet to get your fuck on. Why are there still p...
