Apr 11
// Matthew Razak
This will make three posts over one lawsuit this weekend, but when Activision sues the sh*t hits the fan. While for the most part this lawsuit has very little impact on us gamers, it appears that we may now thank the legal is...

Feb 19
// Jordan Devore
Project Offset has been in "does it even exist?" territory for far too long, as far as I'm concerned. There's been a steady stream of tech demonstrations for years now, so yeah, it likely exists in some playable form. But wi...

Feb 03
// Jordan Devore

Dec 09
// Jordan Devore
Before we jump into this, let me catch you up to speed. It's my job to obsess over these sorts of factoids, and even I had forgotten about some of Project Offset's history. Every time the first-person fantasy game is shown in...

Pre-order Split Second, get a vehicle of some sort


Nov 13
// Jordan Devore
Exciting, huh? Black Rock's Split Second provides so many thrills that the studio decided to turn the insanity down a notch for the game's obligatory GameStop-exclusive pre-order bonus. As you can clearly see, a reservation w...

The biggest UT 2004 explosion you'll see today


Oct 09
// Jordan Devore
Disclaimer: this isn't nearly as good as the Crysis "Raining Men" video, or most of the other "spawn a bunch of objects, it'll be funny" CryEngine 2 videos, for that matter. However, it is certainly worth ...

Sep 11
// Jim Sterling
As much as Nintendo has changed and warped since the success of the Wii, it's nice to know that the company hasn't abandoned all of its old sensibilities. Like its complete fear of violence and love of bizarre censorship. Did...

Sep 04
// Jim Sterling
Piracy is a hot topic for any PC developer, so when I went to check out Dragon Age: Origins in Edmonton, I took the opportunity to ask BioWare whether a loyal fanbase makes piracy less of a problem and, if not, how the studio...

Aug 30

Destructoid is no stranger to the words flying out of David Jaffe's mouth. In fact those words have flown directly at us. In short (if two sentences are too long for you), David Jaffe has a big mouth and he likes to run it. H...
