Vertiginous Golf brings steampunk mini-golf to Steam Early Access

Here's a game I can get behind. Vertiginous Golf  is, "a first-person exploratory mini-golf" title, set in a dystopian steampunk world. I'm sure that world is interesting, but it's the mini-golf I'm excited about. Those...

The Chaos Engine is coming back with a 'restoration'

My first reaction to this annoyingly teaserish trailer for The Chaos Engine was, "Holy eff! They're remaking The Chaos Engine!" That is not quite what's happening here -- this is a "restoration" of the classic top-down co-op...

The Order: 1866 announced for Playstation 4

Ready at Dawn Studios showed off a trailer for a new IP for the PlayStation 4, called The Order: 1866. While the trailer didn't show a lot, it did show enough to get me excited. It's a Victorian-era setting with lots of awes...

Avalanche Studios has a steampunk-style game on hold

Will there be another Just Cause? Probably. I mean, if there's any justice, yes. But those recent pictures Avalanche Studios founder Christofer Sundberg put out on Twitter aren't it. When Edge pressed him on the matter, he ca...

Teslagrad teleports onto Steam Greenlight

Just last week, we first learned about Teslagrad in its debut trailer. The video piqued Jordan's interest with its steampunk world, hand-drawn art, and magnetism-based puzzle platforming. If you also liked what you saw, you c...

Latest Dishonored developer diary is all about immersion

Arkane Studios has pulled the curtain back once again on Dishonored through an always welcome developer diary, this time talking about immersion in the game. It starts out with the title's Visual Design Director, Viktor Anto...

Oh boy! Dishonored has five different pre-order bonuses

You know, I'm getting quite tired of all these exclusive pre-orders at every single retailer for every new game that comes out. It becomes a hassle if you pick a crappy one, because then you have to wait a couple months to pu...

Preview: Steam and spirituality in Civ V: Gods & Kings
by Ryan Perez

Few games actually require no introduction, and this is certainly one of them. This long-winded, turn-based strategy series has persistently delved deep into the core of human history, and what it takes for a nation to start, grow and die. While Civilization is a game, first and foremost, you'd be hard-pressed to find a fan denying that Civ provides a deep look at the core mechanics of cultural development.

Like any well-made expansion, Gods & Kings aims to add to what the series is already praised for. Religion and espionage have always been a large part of the franchise, and Firaxis Games listened to the cries of their fans after excluding it from Civilization V. Now, they're bringing it back, new and improved, along with fun little addition that sci-fi fans are sure to love: alternative history.

That's right, Civilization V: Gods & Kings features steam punk technology.

Preview: Our first look at Dishonored
by Abel Girmay

Locked up for a crime you did not commit, and accused of killing the empress you swore to protect, you are left to rot in prison for your unjust conviction. Your only saving grace is an amoral mystical being who endows you with special powers, allowing you to make your escape.

Upon emerging from the hellhole you've been caged in, you find the world outside enslaved by the totalitarian government that has seized power, and to make matters worse, there is a deadly plague spreading around your once beloved city. Yeah, I'd be pissed too.

Such is the plight of Corvo, a bodyguard-turned-supernatural assassin in Dishonored. Coming from the minds at Arkane Studios, there is a lot of talent behind this project. Key players from the development of such classics as Deus Ex, Thief: Deadly Shadows, and Half-Life 2 are just some of the hands on deck. You don't have to be the greatest gaming buff to respect the pedigree brought to the table.

Dishonored unleashed a debut trailer full of Stilt Police

We've seen some very pretty screenshots of Bethesda's Dishonored, but so far, nothing in motion. Those hoping for gameplay footage will be disappointed, since this is a CG trailer, but it's still pretty exciting stuff. Check...

Dishonored is looking diabolically delicious

Bethesda today unleashed some new screenshots for Arkane Studios' unique steampunk shooter, Dishonored. Decadence and devilry rule the roost in this selection of very nice looking images.  There's some concept art as wel...

The DTOID SHOW: Mechwarrior, Sim City, & Baldur's Gate!

Yes, you read that correctly. Today's episode of The Destructoid Show is the closest we've actually come to the late-90's flashback episode I've been dying to do that gives me an excuse to buy a Rammstein shirt and some UFO p...

Check out this insanely awesome steampunk fight stick

I've been in the market for a cheap fight stick for a while now, but this custom one from Shoryuken forum-goer b15SDM has convinced me that opulence may be more important. After all, why get a basic no-thrills stick when you ...

Metroid arm cannon gets steampunk'd

Steampunk, while something I have never gotten into, is an interesting concept that romanticizes a bygone age of top hats, monocles and industrialization. It also gives rise to some unique takes on technology, like a steampun...

Hands-on: Fable III: Traitor's Keep DLC
by Max Scoville

At the Microsoft showcase yesterday, I was put in charge of checking out the latest Fable III DLC pack, Traitor's Keep

First, I have to make a confession: I haven’t played any of the other Fable games for more than twenty minutes, so I can’t give you the most expert analysis. However, I will gladly give you my two cents on what I saw. Read forth!
