Life is Strange's Warren is taking things too far

Alright, dude. We get it. You're into the girl. All the nervous chatter and endless texts killed your cover. It's okay, though. She might be into you too. But, what she won't be into is finding you hiding behind bushes starin...

How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound? photo
How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound?
by Brett Makedonski

We're at that point in the month where it's time to start thinking about which adorable kitten is waiting to replace that other adorable kitten when you flip your calendar, and less importantly, what Xbox's Games with Gold titles will be. You can probably sneak a peek at the kitty cat whenever you want, but Microsoft's already allowed us to steal a glimpse at our free games.

April is fairly special in that there are twice the number of titles offered to download for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Whether or not you're interested in all six of them is another story.

The two Xbox One games in April will have you chalking your cue and spouting off rhymes in awkward rhythm, too. Pool Nation FX and Child of Light are both available throughout the entirety of the month.

Those on Xbox 360 will find themselves sticking blades in necks, and chainsaws on guns. But, that's only half the fun. Gears of War: Judgment and Terraria will be available from April 1 to 15 (no foolin'!). After that, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel take over until it's time to flip to yet another kitten.

Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Sword in the Darkness photo
Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Sword in the Darkness
by Darren Nakamura

Telltale seems to be getting into the swing of things with Game of Thrones, in more ways than one. For starters, it only took seven weeks since the last episode for this one to come out. If Telltale can keep up that pace, the season should conclude this August.

More importantly, this is the first episode to really capture the essence of A Song of Ice and Fire. Where Iron From Ice was mostly setup and The Lost Lords felt a little like filler, The Sword in the Darkness finally starts to get the members of House Forrester moving toward something that feels like progress. The situation is still dismal, but faint flickers of light at the end are just now coming into focus.

Life is Strange: Episode Two Achievement guide photo
Life is Strange: Episode Two Achievement guide
by Brett Makedonski

The second episode of Life is Strange has an Achievement set that falls right in line with the first episode's. Again, exploration is key, and taking some quirky photos will earn you some easy Gamerscore.

The rules and process are the exact same as they were in the previous walkthrough: 

Life is Strange has a chapter select feature that tells you how many photos in each section remain to be collected. However, make sure to select the option to "play this chapter in collectible mode" which will allow you to hunt without changing any choices you've already made.

Everything from here on out may contain spoilers. Even the images for the Achievements are spoilers in that they give away what needs to be done. I've listed them in the order in which they appear, but I highly recommend playing through once at your own speed before using a guide to clean up.

Review: Life is Strange: Out of Time photo
Review: Life is Strange: Out of Time
by Brett Makedonski

I just finished episode two of Life is Strange, and I've spiraled down a playlist of Ben Folds songs. Out of Time is Kate Marsh's story, but "Kate" is too cheerful; this tale isn't about daisies, dandelions, and butterflies. The weighty subject material is more in line with the hopelessness that defines "Carrying Cathy," but alas, that's a different name, although not far off.

That being said, Out of Time does what episode one couldn't: it makes the audience care about character arcs other than main protagonist Max's. After a Max-centric first chapter, it's the other citizens of Arcadia Bay who get a share of the spotlight. We're given some quiet moments with Chloe to begin to understand her struggle. We're introduced to Chloe's mother, who may be the most reasonable and believable character in Life is Strange. Andof course, we grieve with Kate as her entire world turns against her.

Uh, maybe don't walk toward that ominous light in The Evil Within

The next DLC episode of The Evil Within, The Consequence, picks up on April 21, 2015. Like The Assignment before it, Bethesda is starting us off with an extra brief teaser trailer. Somehow, the delivery of the sorta-out-of-c...

Contest: Win a Titan One and a controller of your choice!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Destructoid has once again joined forces with our friends at ConsoleTuner to offer another awesome contest for the Dtoid community! This time around, three lucky readers will take home a Titan One cross-compatibility device and a controller of their choice*!

The Titan One lets you mix-and-match controllers with different consoles, meaning you could plug an Xbox One controller into your PlayStation 3, a DualShock 4 controller into your Xbox 360, and so on. (Or any of the supported controllers directly into your PC, too.) If that sounds like your idea of a good time, leave a comment below telling us which controller + console combo is your favorite! Limit one entry per person, and the contest is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address. You have until this Sunday, March 29 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter.

Good luck! And remember, our Huge Members get automatic entry into all contests (and double entries if you enter one manually), exclusive beta code giveaways for upcoming games, newsletters direct from the staff, ad-free browsing, and more! And most of all, your $3 a month helps directly support the site you love. Try us out!
