FFXIV

Nobuo Uematsu unveils his beautiful new Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward theme


Also, have some expansion footage
May 22
One of the best parts of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the music. Most people don't consider it a "real" Final Fantasy because of the MMO tag, but let me tell you -- it's probably my favorite main entry sinc... read
DMC 4

Check out the femme fatales of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition


So...many...characters
May 22
Trish, playable in the new Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition release next month, is shaping up to be one of the coolest DMC characters to date. Thankfully, Lady doesn't seem like a slouch either, as her gun-based gameplay looks pretty amazing. I was always a fan of the Kalina Ann weapon. Despite the fact that it's digital-only in the west, I'm still excited to give this a test run. read
Moonrise

Moonrise is like a real-time Pokémon, and is coming to Early Access


Remember Spectrobes? Me neither
May 22
I really don’t think Undead Labs was thinking too far past State of Decay when coming up with iys team name. Especially now its latest game, Moonrise, is absolutely nothing like it, and there’s not a zombie in si... read

Arizona Sunshine

Arizona Sunshine: The (Steam) VR revolution will, unsurprisingly, have zombies


Virtual reality zombie shooter
May 21
I sometimes feel like I'm less on board with VR than most. It's a fun novelty to show a family member for 20 minutes, not something I'd like to be cocooned in for hours . Maybe that's why there's expectation of it doing gang... read
Blade Runner up

Technobabylon is a techno babblin' cyberpunk adventure


Blade Runner up
May 21
I still, still, still want to play the actual Blade Runner adventure game, but Technobabylon is a simpler option, what with the Steam page and all. The classic point and click has three playable characters. There's agents Ch... read

Dying Light dev cancels dark fantasy tale Hellraid


To make more Dying Light content
May 21

Expeditions: Viking

Historical RPG Expeditions: Viking announced


Historical means no horned helmets!
May 21
Expeditions: Conquistador by Logic Artists is a great, and difficult, tactical RPG. So naturally, when I heard that another game is being made in the same vein, I immediately became excited. Expeditions: Viking&nbs... read
Lord of Magna

Lord of Magna is nearly here, so have a website and a tutorial video


Have it all!
May 21
Lord of Magna looks like a fun little strategy romp on 3DS. I haven't played it yet, but I'm hoping to get my hands on it soon. In the meantime, XSEED has opened up a new website for the game, and dropped a new tutorial video that explains the combat a bit. In short, it looks a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, where it's more action-based, sans grid. I'm down with that. read

Winter is coming, after all
May 21
Although winter is coming, things are really starting to heat up for House Forrester. While the first couple episodes took a lot of time to set things up, the last one really started putting things into motion. With Episode ... read
Batman

Here, have a cheesy live action Batman: Arkham Knight trailer


Don't walk in alleys at night in Gotham
May 21
Most publishers would only dream of crafting a cheesy live action trailer, wishing they had the budget. Well, WB, in their infinite wisdom of Season Passes and day-one DLC, can afford it, based on this Batman: Arkham Knight&... read
Final Fantasy XIV

Chocobos are using Twitter to race in Final Fantasy XIV


It's funny because birds tweet
May 21
Final Fantasy XIV confused the shit out of me. I played it for about a month, and I’ll probably go back to it, but god damn I had no idea what I was doing. But now there is an anchor in that game, something I know and ... read
Mushroom 11

Rocket ship, catapult, release window

Hover: Revolt of Gamers

Jet Set-esque Hover: Revolt of Gamers sure looks pretty


Night and day cycle
May 20
When I saw the Kickstarter for Hover: Revolt of Gamers, I had to back it. It's been a while since we've seen anything even remotely related to Jet Set, and although I'm still desperately craving an HD remake of Jet Set Radio... read

Iron Fish

Unfortunately, Iron Fish isn't about a robot fish


Iron rusts... poorly designed fish
May 20
I’ve mentioned this on Destructoid before, but I’ve had bad experiences with water and for some reason that’s transferred into a fear of eels. Those little fuckers freak me out. So developer BeefJack a... read

You Must Build a Boat

10000000 sequel You Must Build a Boat out on June 4


'10000001' too on-the-nose
May 19
You Must Build a Boat has been in the works for a while. Originally planned as a free update to hit match-three puzzle game 10000000, it eventually ballooned into something big enough to be its own thing. That was more than ... read

Dead or Alive 5 gets superhero costume set


Marvel-ous

'Game 4'

20 minutes of the new game from Castle Crashers, BattleBlock dev


The Behemoth's 'Game 4'
May 19
Because apparently it's 2008 again, I actually played some Castle Crashers this year, which then got me hankering for some BattleBlock, which I prefer. And I'm thinking the tentatively titled "Game 4," with its strategy leanings, might make for my favorite Behemoth game yet. The 20 minutes above is an updated version of what Jordan played and previewed last year, if you prefer words. read

Toyota

That's not a Chocobo, that's a Toyota


I'd listen to this theme all day
May 19
At first glance, this looks like a promo video for the world of the newest Final Fantasy. Then it becomes a car commercial, and quickly turns back into an FF experience with the Chocobo theme. Why do you have to confuse... read

Like there was any doubt Street Fighter V would ship without M. Bison? Capcom, by way of IGN, has revealed the character with a brand new gameplay trailer. You'll find plenty of psycho-action and some really neat p... read

Nuclear Throne teaser

Amazing Nuclear Throne teaser inspired by Doom 4


Fish can lol
May 18
Rami Ismail of Vlambeer was inspired by today's super hot, extra informative Doom 4 teaser to whip up a little something for Nuclear Throne. This tantalizing glimpse of the frenetic early access title (that you can play right now) is a conundrum wrapped in a riddle. I know I'll be spending the rest of the day breaking apart this teaser frame by frame and comparing my findings on reddit. read
