Pillars of Eternity: The White March is set to be one epic expansion

As one of Obsidian Entertainment's most ambitious titles, Pillars of Eternity earned a lot of respect from fans of the genre. The developers found great success in returning to their roots, and they've got more in store for their epic fanta...

 
Deus Ex
After watching twenty or so minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, I sat down with executive narrative director Mary DeMerle. We spoke about the streamlined gameplay, Human Revolution's flaws, and their plans for tackling sensitive issues in a critical medium.   read

Back when word broke regarding Tri-Ace's acquisition at the hands of mobile group Nepro Japan, the early speculation was the studio's days making games for consoles were over. Then, just a couple months later, Square Eni...   read

Halo 5 preview
While E3 didn't officially start until last Tuesday, there was plenty of video game stuff happening in and around Los Angeles the day before (and even the day before that!). Covering press conferences from Microsoft, Electron...   read

Shenmue 3

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world

Shenmue 3's existence is pretty neat. Its presence on a major publisher's stage show to hock a Kickstarter is less neat, to me. Obviously the $2 million goal (and $3.5 million raised at time of writing) would not be enough for Shenmue 3, so...

Video impressions: Uncharted 4's extended E3 demo

I got to see another large chunk of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from after the trailer cut off at E3. I wrote about that a bit here. I've also written a bit about why I think Uncharted 4 has the potential to be much better than Uncharted 3'...

My magical journey at E3 2015

You may not have noticed from my complete and total lack of appearance in the pictures in this post, but I was at E3 2015. It was my first E3 and it was pretty alright. *shrugs harshly* I had a good time getting to meet: heroes, enemie...

Hands-on with 2D Souls-like Eitr

Zack and I finally played Eitr, which I've talked about before, at E3 this year. Then we sat very close together in camping chairs, shared a mic, and talked about it. To quote a YouTube comment, "Is everyone is dtoid just gay now?" Now!? E...

 
Butt Sniffin Pugs preview
Sometimes you're walking around a convention floor and you just find the diamond in the rough of the show. This year's E3 2015 diamond is for certain Butt Sniffin Pugs, a game played with a giant tennis ball, two buttons, and...   read

Headmaster

Headmaster is NOT a VR porn game for Morpheus

"Though its lessons may cross over," get it? Crossover, like the soccer move? (We kicked it and I scored, soccer game). Because Headmaster is (sort of) a weird soccer game and not about giving virtual blowjobs (you'll only get porn on Ocul...

Toys-to-life games have a long way to go

Between Skylanders, Disney Infinity, amiibo, and now LEGO Dimensions, I'm hearing an awful lot of talk about the "toys to life" category these days. That's fine, but nudge me when we can do this:

 
Mario & Luigi: PJ Preview

Virtual Reality
Super Hypercube is another leading Morpheus game. It's a puzzle title about twisting a block around, in three dimensions, so that it fits through holes in oncoming walls. Tension builds as new pieces are added and your simple...   read

25 minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay

There's so much to talk about in the first minute or two alone. Going in on mechanical Apartheid. Sexy leather pants. Jensen's spiky ass designer facial hair (and skull hair). The fucking Illuminati!!! A game that isn't piss yellow. Higher...

 
Virtual Reality
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and virtual reality -- those were the two things, by far, I most enjoyed at this year's E3. Steven did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the former, so now it's on me to ...   read

Nintendo announced a new Metroid so we gave Zack a haircut

Ah, young, handsome Zack Furniss. Relatively new to Destructoid and attending his first E3 for the site, Zack was wide-eyed and hopeful. He imagined a world of Metroid Prime 4 or Super-er Metroid and took his e3thusiasm to declare that, sh...

 
E3 preview
I was beefing a bit with Rise of the Tomb Raider for its heavily scripted sequences in which you hold forward on the analog stick as the game just sort of nonthreateningly happens around you (except for when a brutal cutscen...   read

The Solus Project sends you alone into space

The Solus Project is a "single-player survival game by Teotl Studios (The Ball, Unmechanical) and Grip Games, coming to PC and Xbox One in early 2016." It basically sounds like the upcoming Matt Damon movie The Martian. Dead crew, one surv...

Chibi-Robo preview
Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash for the 3DS seemingly came out of nowhere and captured our hearts, or at the very least mine. Nintendo describes it as a "whipping platformer," which is a phrase I'm not familiar with. But after playing, ...   read

The upcoming Need for Speed doesn't have a subtitle because it wants to be the definitive game in the series, according to Craig Sullivan of Ghost Games. The developers have cherry picked the best parts of the previous subtit...   read

Genei Ibun Roku #FE

Gameplay from the Fire Emblem & SMT inspired idol RPG

It is almost as difficult to discuss Genei Ibun Roku #FE as it is to fit it into a headline. The JRPG was borne from what was previously "Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblemi," but turned into "an entirely new experience" that happens to take...

Random E3 moments immortalized in a quick light suck

Who had the best E3 booth this year? From a media viewpoint, I'd say it had to be Nintendo. The open plan allowed the fans to channel their excitement in the middle instead of having to elbow through to enjoy the games. The press check-in a...

Sony 'waiting for the right time to unveil' Gravity Rush 2

As is always the case after a Gravity Rush 2-free show goes by, the lack of Gravity Rush 2 at E3 this year was a bummer, even after the report six months ago that it was, "in earnest development." With Sony skipping gamescom this year, look...

Sony pays lip service to Vita with 1 minute showcase video

Sony did pretty dang well with its press conference this year, but one area where it was sorely lacking is Vita support. The closest we got was World of Final Fantasy, which is also coming to PlayStation 4, and the furthest we got was a no...

Sword Coast Legends' Dungeon Master surpassed my expectations

I was supposed to Dungeon Master a session of Dungeons & Dragons tonight, but that post-E3 fatigue comes in hard. So why not tell you about my hands-on session with n-Space's Sword Coast Legends, a new asymmetrical co-op RPG b...
