C-Wars GDC preview
It's been three years since Jonathan Holmes squealed over C-Wars, "a post-apocalyptic ARPG + RTS + OMG." And it's not even out yet. Take that, Kickstarter backers! On the other hand, the game does exist in a playable state, ...   read

The Turing Test
Around this time last year, a first-person puzzle game called Pneuma: Breath of Life released. Although it was built around an interesting conceit, I didn't find myself too enamored with it. The puzzles mostly failed to ...   read

Keen preview
During GDC I met with a couple of lovely Brazilian gents from Cat Nigiri, a studio whose logo is a kawaii-looking kitty draped under slab of raw fish. The duo was showing off its commander-less Keen, a Zelda-inspired game tha...   read

Hands-on Impressions
Rise & Shine takes place on Gamearth, a planet where all video game characters live, similar to Wreck-It Ralph or Toontown in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? A ten-year-old boy named Rise becomes an unlikely hero when ...   read

Super Impossible Road
During every Awesome Games Done Quick event, I pay particular attention to the Mario Kart block. The reason is that I love watching the speedrunners hit every shortcut with surgical precision. It requires knowing the exa...   read

Hands-on with PvZ: Heroes
Popcap has continuously surprised us with games we didn't even know we wanted, such as the Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare games, and the ever-popular Pachinko-like Peggle; their latest title Plants vs. Zombies: H...   read

Sniper Elite 4 preview
For whatever reason -- perhaps through no fault of its own -- I can't help but see the workings of other games when I look at Sniper Elite. Rube Goldberg-lite environmental executions remind me of Hitman. Third-person stealth...   read

mii-crotransactions
Miitomo, Nintendo's first mobile phone game is officially available in Japan, and I've gotten my grubby hands on it by being a big fat liar, all because I love you, dear readers. After messing around with it for an entire day and avoiding all other aspects of my life, I think I have a decent grasp of it, and it is by no means perfect. But it is damned sure addicting.   read

Mutants in Manhattan
"It basically sucked," Activision producer Robert Conkey told me. "We don't know what happened." I had just finished playing a demo of Platinum's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan with Conkey and game de...   read

Rock Band VR
Faux-rocking in the living room has been a wildly popular pastime over the years, as Harmonix married the rhythm and party genres with Rock Band. So many people have fond memories of the franchise partly because they enjoy pl...   read

Everest VR
I still haven't had much exposure to VR. Last August, I used the Oculus Rift to high-five a dead alien (please read that and tell me I'm funny) and pluck bullets out of the air. I still remember those events as if t...   read

We Are Chicago preview
We Are Chicago takes place in Chicago's south side. It is a city whose residents are besieged by violent crime, with homicide rates that make Los Angeles and New York look like Pleasantville. Much of that is confined to the g...   read

Strafe preview
One look at Strafe and its influences are obvious. The first-person shooter looks like a lot of first-person shooters. Quake, Doom, and Half-Life are a few titles that developer Pixel Titans grew up revering. Game d...   read

OneShot preview
Adventure puzzle games have a history of leaning into the obscure to make things happen. Throw a bridle on the snake, and it'll turn into a horse! The logic may seem cloudy, but that's how you advance the video game -- like i...   read

Pokken
Like many of you, I expected Pokkén Tournament to play like Tekken but with Pokémon in the ring instead of the usually assortment of robots, animals, and other eccentrics from Namco's long-running fighting...   read

Dark Souls III
Late last week, Destructoid was invited to come to London and play the opening hours of Dark Souls III on PS4. Starting today, we're going to be rolling out footage we captured at the event. In the video below, we fight the first boss of Dark Souls III, Iudex Gundyr. Yeah, he's freaky as heck. I am fully prepared for the "git gud scrub" comments section, so have at it haha.   read

Hitman GO
Hit Mango is a delightful game on mobile devices that involves punching juicy stone fruits of the genus Mangifera. But we're here to talk about Hitman GO, one of Agent 47's brief dalliances with mobile platforms. Similar...   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

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

Kona Preview
Carl Faubert’s Chevy truck rattles through a raging blizzard, his journey narrated by a Canadian Sam Elliott. I’m at the wheel, but barely in control. Out of the white, another vehicle speeds towards me. We're on ...   read

Gigantic Beta Impressions
"Not another MOBA!" many of you are probably saying, but let me be the first to tell you that Gigantic is not another League of Legends clone. I loved it when I played it at PAX East 2015, and I love it now that I've been playing it in beta. You might love it, too.   read

Hands-on with Paragon
Epic Games (Gears of War) announced Paragon (PS4, PC) at PlayStation Experience, an in-tight, third-person MOBA from the developer of seminal shooters like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament. Yes, everything is a MOBA these d...   read

Hitman hands-on
Have you ever wondered just how Cueball McFurrowed-Brow became the famously good killing man of the Hitman series' glory years? Of fucking course not, which is why the need to string Hitman: Absolution together into some S&am...   read

First hands-on with FANG
I know what you're thinking with Street Fighter V (PS4, PC) less than two weeks from release: everything is mined. There was the big reveal that Arcade mode will have standard text and art stories to be followed by a post-lau...   read

JRPG spring lineup
Fire Emblem Fates is just a few weeks away (February 19) and I'll finally have a reason to re-glue my face to my 3DS and play nosy match-maker. But the two versions of Fates are just, uh, two of the JRPGs (and adjacent genres...   read

Fire Emblem preview
Fire Emblem Fates has been out in Japan for a while, but I love Awakening's person-story-focused shipping mechanics, which really elevates the game into something consuming, so I messed about in both of the upcoming US versio...   read

Far Cry Primal
Hey folks, are you excitedly awaiting the release of Far Cry Primal? Are you eager to see for yourself how being set back twelve thousand years affects the gameplay loop of Far Cry? Well, we have a very special treat for you today. Yep, we've got footage of the first hour of Far Cry Primal for you to feast upon.   read

Tom Clancy's The Division
A couple weeks back, I went to a Ubisoft event to play Tom Clancy's The Division. You can find my overall impressions here (Choice quote: "There are quite a few options that assist in your eradication of the homeless and dise...   read

Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
Yesterday, in the hidden-away London offices of Bandai Namco, I sat down at a TV and pretended to be an anime ninja. I blew up half the planet, became a multi-tailed animalistic monster, high-fived magical fox powers onto an army, and punched an old man using a gigantic tree. Yep, I played a bunch of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. That game is nothing if not over the top and ambitious.   read

Tom Clancy's The Division
A week or so ago I drove through Hell Niño in Los Angeles to get my hands on Tom Clancy's The Division in a 2002 Dodge Neon with bad windshield wipers. Let no one ever deny that I am committed. Alongside Ubisoft reps, ...   read
