BBC
Moviemakers excel at recreating violence and gore on screen. But when a prominent writer for the BBC asks if we should view fictional violence with more caution then we should also, more importantly, consider if they might ha...   read

Final Fantasy XV
During tonight's Final Fantasy XV Uncovered event, Square Enix revealed what it is calling the Platinum Demo, which is a side story that explores a young Noctis' dreamscape. In keeping with the rumors Chris reported on this m...   read

Oculus Rift review
I will never forget my first experience with virtual reality. I was at a county fair as a child, and there was a large line for a "virtual NASCAR" racing game. I took one look at the helmet, and that's all I needed to see -- ...   read

Fallout 4 Automatron DLC
I played a lot of Fallout 4 last year. Too much, too quickly, in retrospect. It was one of those games I loved in the moment, but whenever I stopped to think about the bigger picture, I couldn't get away from the nagging feel...   read

Day of the Tentacle
To relive the experience of playing an older game for the first time is a special thing. But when playing an outdated game there’s always a separate lens applied, an unconscious awareness of technologies that exist in g...   read

Hyrule Warriors Legends
From its announcement to the conclusion of my multi-100-hour playthrough of Hyrule Warriors, I was enthralled. It was a match made in heaven, mashing up Zelda with Dynasty Warriors, and all of the parties involved deserv...   read

VR Breakdown
With the announcement of the price and release date of Sony's PlayStation VR headset yesterday, I noticed many people don't really understand the difference between it and other upcoming VR devices like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. So your old pal Dr. Dinosexual is here to clue you in on the differences of each device, along with included accessories, games, and overall cost.   read

Hyrule Warriors Legends
I now have access to Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS, set to arrive on March 25 in the west. I already detailed the Wii U transfer process, but I also discovered another tidbit for myself while playing this afternoon that...   read

PlayStation VR
During a press event at the Game Developers Conference today, Sony announced its price and release plans for PlayStation VR. The PS4 virtual reality device will be out this October in North America, Europe, and Asia for $399 ...   read

Pokken Tournament Review
When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two week...   read

Senran Kagura
We've all heard the expression "sex sells." It's the idea that our brains are so hardwired toward carnal pleasures that we'll buy anything so long as there is a pretty face and a nice ass we can associate with it. But let's b...   read

Salt and Sanctuary
Chris Carter may seem like the only Souls guy around here, but there are more of us lurking in the shadows, wishing we could review them too. When I saw that Ska Studios of Dishwasher fame was making its own 2D take...   read

Microsoft open Cross Play
Microsoft has always been pushing for some form of Cross-Platform play between its own line of consoles and the PC (Killer Instinct will have it with Windows 10 and Xbox One, for example), but this new development is somethin...   read

The Division review
When I embarked upon my journey with The Division, I saw potential. The map is well crafted, the sandbox gimmick is more justified than a lot of other similar games, and playing with friends is fun. But after squaring off aga...   read

Hitman review

Review: Hitman

Hitman is the funniest game I've played in a while. IO Interfactive's subtitle-free reboot of its long-running assassination franchise is, mostly, side-stepping cinematics full of S&M nuns and returning to the realm of sl...   read

Deathsmiles review
Just hearing the phrase "Cave shooter" evokes so many memories from just about every defining era of my life. From the very first time I ever played Espgaluda, to listening to the gang's adventures in shmups on Destructoid's ...   read

Sorcery!
3DNES, a new web-based emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System that displays games as if they were made in 3D, has been publicly released in beta form. As you can see in the video above, it isn't always perfect, but m...   read

Nvidia
[Update: Nvidia has released a new driver, 364.51, which it claims solves the problems caused by the faulty driver. However, the reception to it on reddit has been mixed, with some people reporting the exact same problems as ...   read

Stardew Valley Review
Please, send help. I can't stop playing Stardew Valley. In fact, it's running in the background right now. Which reminds me, I need to catch an Albacore real quick for Elliot... All right, so, Stardew Valley. Wait, I need to cook Willie something special for his gift... Anyway, what was I talking about again?   read

Lionhead Studios
Microsoft has announced that it is 'in discussions' with Lionhead Studios, Peter Molyneux’s former studio and developer of Black & White and Fable, to shut the studio down. In a statement made on the Xbox site, it w...   read

Razer
While most gamers with aspirations of going pro focus on keyboard and mouse setups, that doesn't mean there isn't a market out there for competitive-level gaming controllers. The Razer Wildcat, a PC and Xbox One controller...   read

Twilight Princess review
My relationship with Twilight Princess is one of the most complicated I've come across in my entire gaming career. I completed it within a week of its launch on the Wii, and was left underwhelmed. It wasn't necessarily t...   read

HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I last previewed Quantum Break at E3 2013, a lifetime ago, and had my reservations around the interlaced television show aspect that must have come from Microsoft's then "sports, sports, television" strategy that saw the stud...   read

Rock Band 4 crowdfunding
We all knew Harmonix didn't strike gold with Rock Band 4 sales-wise, but this is something else. The publisher has announced a FIG crowdfunding campaign for Rock Band 4, which will apparently benefit the core game as a platfo...   read

DS3 preview, huge gallery
This isn't the first time I've played Dark Souls III. I kicked its ass half a year ago and even usurped Chris as site Souls expert by beating the demo boss without dying. This latest Dark Souls III preview a month and a half ...   read

Hostile takeover
Remember when French conglomerate Vivendi gave up ownership in Activision Blizzard? You might struggle to remember the exact moment for a while -- three years is a long time -- but I assume you'll have a flash of realization ...   read

Pokemon Red
Over the course of the past few weeks, I've been interviewing people regarding their first Pokémon experience, and it usually involves finding out about it a few months, or even years after it launched in the US (...   read

Hyperkin ProCube
When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use out of it. So I managed to get my hands on one, and I have to say, it's a near perfect recreation.   read

Pokemon
[Update: I grabbed some screens for some concept art in the stream, which flew by at half a second intervals. The trailer is also available below. Feel free to speculate away!] Well, those trademark filings were correct: Nint...   read

Resident Evil
Almost a year ago, Capcom told investors that it wanted to continue the trend of putting out old titles on newer platforms. Last November, it seemed as if a re-release of Resident Evil 6 was definitely in the works -- a...   read
