What does time even mean anyway in Nova-111?


Find out for yourself very soon
Aug 20
// Brett Makedonski
Funktronic Labs' Nova-111 was the highlight of my BitSummit in 2014. It blends turn-based movement with real-time elements to make an action puzzler of sorts. All of this is to rescue 111 scientists. Just trust us -- it...

So really, it's the only way
While reviewing Curses 'N Chaos, I've come across a lot of different strategies. Ultimately, though, only one proved useful. So before you go out trying to kill monsters like a n00b, please watch this pro-level video from the top player on the pro circuit, me.

Reminisce on Metal Gear's storied PlayStation history


New video from Sony
Aug 19

We already know that the vast majority of Destructoid readers are getting Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC and PS4, so it makes sense that Sony would spring for a legacy video, given their history with the ser...

Fart on everyone and run away with Gassy Mob


Devolver Digital publishing, of course
Aug 19
// Darren Nakamura
Fart. Toot. Fluff. Pass gas. Flatulate. However polite you want to be while describing gas escaping from a butthole, it's still a pretty impolite thing to do in public. Impolite and funny (to me). Like this classic gem: Why ...

This LEGO rendition of Hyrule Castle is a work of art


Complete with characters on the scene
Aug 19

It's crazy to think how far people have come in the arena of LEGO construction. As a kid I kind of just make these straight towers, that I'd often use as swords until they slowly broke apart (Lincoln Logs for life). Now, peo...

Aug 19
// Chris Carter
Picross is a series you don't hear about too often, but it has a rather loving fanbase. You're about to get some love back in the form of a new game, which is heading to the 3DS in October in Japan. Set to debut on the first of the month, it will launch for 3,000 yen, and will be available both digitally and physically. Hopefully it arrives overseas!

What do you do if this goal gets scored on you right off the bat? Do you just rage quit? Is there even any rage, knowing that this opponent clearly has you bested? Do you just hang your head and walk home? Really, its upside...

People are varying degrees of upset over Nintendo's not-unexpected decision to lock content -- even if it's mainly costumes and the like -- behind amiibo pairing. The "amiiqo" is an okay answer to these complaints. The compl...

Lego Dimensions Scooby Doo looks delightfully campy


Where are you? In a hella-expensive game
Aug 18
// Chris Carter
I have no idea what to expect with LEGO Dimensions. So far it seems like a "me-too" type situation, and hot damn, the add-ons look expensive as hell. But of course, the properties involved (14 in all so far) are just insane....

With a name like Blubber Busters I was expecting something akin to that video where some knuckleheads try and dispose of a beached whale with dynamite, sending gore and viscera all over looker-ons (not to be confused with th...

Curious: does anyone pronounce Just Cause like Just 'Cuz? Just wondering. Why? Just 'cause. Hah. But seriously. I know some of you must've started with that pronunciation and it stuck, right? I mean, it works, too. That was ...

WWE newcomer Kevin Owens has already had spats with John Cena, Cesaro, and Michael Cole, but he won't find any of them when he gets to the bottom of this ramp. That's because his entrance video for WWE 2K16 is in NXT wh...

Free-to-play mobile 'adventure'
Aug 18

Activision has announced a new Skylanders game called Battlecast, and it's a free-to-play mobile card game. I'm guessing they want to get in on that sweet Hearthstone money (which funnily enough, is part of the sam...

Not recognizing a majority of music in games has been a running theme this year. Guitar Hero Live largely falls victim to this. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 definitely does. Fortunately, Rock Band 4 does not. Harm...

Since the beginning of time, sexy teens have been going out into the woods to do naughty things and get slaughtered. It's the circle of life. This time-honored tradition is well-documented in many films of the 1980s. Until D...

Microsoft is putting the finishing touches on Gears of War Ultimate Edition, an upgraded remake of the 2006 title. It's extending those duties a bit beyond the game, though. It's also recreating some of the original marketin...

Take a look at some recent bad asses in gaming


From Destructoid's video team
Aug 17
// Chris Carter
The Destructoid video team has whipped up a look at some recent badasses in gaming. from all walks of life. Out of everyone, I'm still looking forward to playing as Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V. It feels like I've been waiting forever, but Phantom Pain is nearly here. Drake can definitely still be considered a bad ass, but I'm over Uncharted a bit after playing through the last game.
