We may not have Dying Light yet, but you can have a Dying Light trailer

Chris already briefed you on the Dying Light review situation. It's grim, bleak, and kind of desperate -- a lot like a real zombie apocalypse, I guess. Good job, Techland; you've achieved perfect thematic #synergy. Even thou...

Gunsport's idea of a dystopian future is cyberpunk volleyball

In the future, two teams of two people will face one another in small arenas. Guns at the ready, they will prepare their trigger fingers, take aim, and fire... at a volleyball. At least, that is what Gunsport predicts the fu...

House of Wolves might be Bungie's last chance to save Destiny photo
House of Wolves might be Bungie's last chance to save Destiny
by Chris Carter

Before Destiny was released, it was hyped into oblivion. Hundreds of thousands of fans bought into it, and by extension, purchased the Season Pass consisting of the first two expansions -- the second of which, House of Wolves, is set for a March release date.

Activision and Bungie already have their money, whether fans are disappointed or not. But they don't have their cash for September's rumored "Comet" expansion or anything else after that.

This is their time to put up or shut up regarding a lot of the things promised these past few years.

My first four hours with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt photo
My first four hours with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
by Alessandro Fillari

It's an exciting time to be into role-playing games. With the release of heavy hitters such as Dragon Age: Inquisition, Dark Souls II, Divinity: Original Sin, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Wasteland 2 in recent years, the genre has had a healthy supply of deep and involving games. But one such series, based on Polish fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, got a major foothold into the hearts of fans.

Originally released in 2007 for PC, The Witcher placed players in the shoes of Geralt, a monster hunter for hire, and became a sleeper hit for Polish developer CD Projekt Red. The studio released its follow-up in 2011 and has since become a juggernaut in the PC gaming community. Now, the company is readying for the conclusion to its wildly popular RPG series. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, its most ambitious title yet, ventures into vast open game gameplay while offering a rousing finish to the central character's story.

Though for the last two years, we've only gotten plenty of trailers and other bits of media on the game. The developers have been shy with allowing anyone hands-on time, but at a recent exclusive event held for retailers and members of the press, the folks at CD Projekt Red invited Destructoid out to play The Witcher 3. During my four-hour session, I dove head first into this open-world action-RPG, and saw just how Geralt of Rivia made the transition. So relax, clear your schedule, and let me tell about my experience with one of 2015's most anticipated titles.

Samus and Sagat unbox Guilty Gear X3d -SIGN- Limited Edition

Toukiden: Kiwami has better abs on PlayStation 4

Between Toukiden: The Age of Demons and Freedom Wars, I'm slipping way behind on hunting/action games. Probably for the best, in the former case: Omega Force is coming out with an expanded version, Toukiden: Kiwami, that incl...

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition goes above and beyond photo
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition goes above and beyond
by Alessandro Fillari

It's been just over two years since the release of one of last gen's most polarizing titles. Back in 2010, Capcom made a bold and wildly unexpected decision to hand one of its most-loved franchises to a Western developer, and ever since many people have been vocal about their opinion of DmC Devil May Cry. A common topic for debate among fans of the Devil May Cry series is the aftermath of Ninja Theory's attempt at rebooting Capcom's beloved action-brawler.

Was it worth it? Did it succeed in what it set out to do? And just what the hell was up with Dante's new look? While many of these questions are open for discussion, none of those belittle the fact that we're still talking about the game years later. And because of that, Capcom and the folks at Ninja Theory aren't quite finished with their reimagining of the franchise. With the surprise announcement of DmC: Definitive Edition last year, along with a revisit to Devil May Cry 4 on the way, it's clear Capcom has not forgotten about its devil-hunting trash-talker.

During a special hands-on session with the Definitive Edition, I got to experience DmC with a fresh coat of paint and a much-needed re-tinkering. And after seeing how this enigmatic brawler's makeover has turned out, this new outing might just make you a believer.

These Bloodborne PS4s are kind of lazily done, but I want them

My launch PS4 died a few months ago. Yep, just up and died. So I had to pick up a new one, and figured hey, why not the Destiny white PS4 -- it's the same price, and I can give the pack-in game away. It was a good idea a...
