Although the name may suggest otherwise, Armored Core: Verdict Day is a full installment, not some continuation of AC V. As we heard earlier from Keith, developer From Software is emphasizing a three-faction war that will be...


Back in early 2006 there was not much going for the Xbox 360 in regards to engrossing online play. There was Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, which was great, but that was it. That is, however, until the release of From Soft...


The folks at MekTek Studios are pulling out all the stops for their new mecha game, Heavy Gear Assault. A new title in the fan-favorite giant robot action game, MekTek and Stompy Bot Productions are looking to satisfy fans o...


If you have ever had a desire to drive a mech around town, now you can finally have that dread come true. Head on over to Khang's Mechs and check out their low prices on top of the line mechs. Dave says they're epic. This is another April fool's gag, but it would be really sweet to own a mech.


[Update: Namco Bandai has just announced the game will see a US release. More official screens have been added to the gallery.] Although Armored Core V didn't deliver the goods for a lot of people, I still have hope for the f...


If you needed any reminder that 2013 could well be the Year of the Mech, then this reveal trailer for Heavy Gear Assault should be another strong reminder that mechs are truly back. Developed by MekTekStudios and published b...


In case you were concerned that visually-stunning mech shooter Hawken would run well on your computer, you can always turn on the PhysX options that will ensure amazing visuals and mournful performance (for most). In this vi...


Zone of the Enders was a welcome departure from Hideo Kojima's legendary brainchild Metal Gear Solid back in 2001. While a stark contrast to tactical espionage action, Z.O.E. always weirdly felt like it could easily fit ...


Space combat fans will be happy to know that the ambitious Strike Suit Zero Kickstarter campaign has managed to hit its funding goal and more. With the project confirmed, developer Born Ready is rolling out a closed beta in D...


Mark October 29 on your calendar, or on the wall of your cell, people. Come Monday, MechWarrior Online is moving to open beta and -- if you haven't already -- you'll finally get a taste of that hot mech on mech action.  ...


Casey's preview of Strike Suit Zero had me on board before I finished reading it. Even halfway decent space combat is an alluring prospect in this day and age, to say nothing of the ship's ability to transform into a mech. Wh...


After working with players on the closed beta of MechWarrior Online, Piranha Games is nearly ready to transition into the open beta. That will be happening on Tuesday, October 16, and those on the fence about the Founder's Pr...


Halloween with Zone of the Enders HD Collection doesn't sound like a bad way to spend the day at all. In North America, the two-game pack will be out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday, October 30. HD Collection compil...


Born Ready Games has a vision to revive large-scale space combat as a viable genre in the vein of games like Wing Commander and Freelancer. With their new PC venture Strike Suit Zero, the company is poised to do exactly that....


Even this long after the name change, I'm still not used to calling it Iron Brigade. The game formerly known as Trenched will be making the waltz over to PC on August 13, 2012, Double Fine has announced. And yes, it'll be ava...


Last week, we headed down to Nvidia headquarters and got our first look at the free-to-play, Cryengine3-powered Mechwarrior Online from Piranha Games. I got to chat with the game's creative director, Bryan Ekman, and he told ...


The MechWarrior property is an oldie. Perhaps even unrecognizable to some, as there hasn’t been a proper entry in like ten years; I know it in name and concept only, having seen box art or occasional screens. Accordingl...


There's never enough mechs. It appears Piranha Games would agree, as they showed off the recently announced Jenner mech that'll appear in MechWarrior Online. Before we go any further, I'd like to just quote the trailer real ...


It's really, really f*cking hot outside. I don't know about you guys, but it's well over a hundred degrees around my neck of the woods and it has been all summer long. It may be a weird coincidence, but Piranha Games has rev...


With Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor now in the rear-view mirror and Hawken shining brightly on the horizon mechs seem to be experiencing something of a resurgence as of late. And now that your turret arms' ...


As previously covered, MechWarrior Online is offering a multi-tier founder's program that gives players willing to throw down some cash up front early access to the free-to-play game and exclusive content. Starting today, you...


If you were alive in 2002, you may remember Steel Battalion for the original Xbox. To many gamer's dismay, it required a special giant $200 controller and a priceless amount of mental fortitude, making it one of the most uniq...


When I got to check out the upcoming free-to-play mech game Hawken for PC at PAX East earlier this year, I was blown away. The developers nailed the most important part of the mech genre: the feel. If you don’t feel as ...


I know the free-to-play nature of MechWarrior Online turned some of us away early on, but the game looks rather good, visually speaking. Surely that and the brand are reason enough to check out the closed beta, which you can ...


This probably goes without saying, but, December isn't exactly right around the corner. As such, the wait for Hawken has and continues to be a test of my patience. Cloud gaming service Gaikai has reached an agreement with Met...


It's somewhat difficult to deny at this point that the whole motion controls movement has been a bit of a bust. Developers never quite figured out how to properly implement them into already established genres. The traditiona...


Okay, I know what you're thinking, and no, MechWarrior Online is not going to have the catapult you're thinking of. When I first went to check out the screenshots, I was expecting some sort of futuristic giant catapult that l...


Remember that time I said the MechWarrior Tactics gameplay was revealed and there was no actual footage of it shown? Yeah, that wasn't nice. You guys want to see it in action. I've got just the thing for you today. That's ri...


It's humorous to see these newly announced pre-order incentives for Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. So far, everything Capcom has shown points toward a rather bleak-looking game filled with death and destruction. You know what ...


If you're like me, as soon as you saw gameplay of the upcoming free-to-play PC mech game, Hawken, you not only wanted to play it -- you needed to play it. Everything just looks so right. I'm a huge proponent of play...


There are many theories on why mech games died out. The question I have is "why are they coming back now?" Perhaps these two issues are tied closer together than some may think. It’s a matter of innovation, I believe. ...


Hey guys! Here we are again! Today's show, we talk about how Kickstarter is the hottest thing on the web right now, and how Tim Schafer's Double Fine Adventure raised 3.3 million dollars, and how inXile's Wasteland 2 is in th...


According to Namco Bandai, Armored Core V went gold this week, just in time for its release which happens to be next week. While Japan has had access to this new installment for some time, North America is only now getting it...


I was a pretty big fan of MechWarrior back in the day. I kind of have a thing for mechs, and I thought it was really awesome. What little kid wouldn't want to blow up giant robots with lasers and missiles fired from other gia...


I... f*ck. It's Armored Core V, guys. I remember buying my PS1 way back when, opening the packed-in demo disk (the one with Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Parappa the Rapper, and I.Q), and falling in love with Armored...


Thank goodness! Now that we have in-game screenshots for MechWarrior Tactics, I can better separate it mentally from the other upcoming game, MechWarrior Online. Tactics has the hex map, while Online is powered by CryEngine 3...


The guys over at Spiral Game Studios sure know how to get me excited for something. First off, this trailer for Orion: Dino Beatdown has that obnoxious, over-the-top announcer who calls the Tyrannosaurus rex "Sally." Then th...


More fast-paced Hawken footage is here -- and quick! -- everyone shoot at that noisy thing flying up above. Except for you, guy who would rather kill me than work toward a common enemy. You're cool. The sound design and HUD ...


It looks like MechWarrior Online is on its way to finally come out. The first step is releasing a teaser trailer, and what do you know? Here we finally are teaser trailer in hand. It gives a first look at the view inside the...


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...
