Gone Home canceled for consoles

With Majesco's money troubles -- the company does not have new games in development for 2015, but is instead continuing to distribute its back catalog -- and the closure of its indie publishing arm Midnight City, the PC hit G...

Call of Duty developer Activision showing off Fun at GDC

We are very busy at the Game Developer Conference eating hamburgers and erecting edifices, but between those activities we are hunting for hot scoops. Ducking behind corners of the Moscone Center's corporate labyrinth, we stu...

Volume is a more thoughtful approach to Metal Gear Solid VR Mission-like stealth

Volume is a fitting name for a polygonal, Metal Gear Solid VR Missions-looking stealth game with enough rectangles to feed a geometry class for the entire year. In the case of Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone follow-up, howeve...

GDC 15 DLC #2: Oily hamburgers and Cranberries

The second lunch of GDC was much messier than the first, which you can watch here. Today (well, two days ago, actually) we went with an American staple, the "Hammed Burger," so named for the first woman who ever went totally...

GDC 15 DLC #1: Chicken shawarma wrap

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even...

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has announced the company's own sort of Ouya/Amazon Fire TV, the "world's first 4K Android TV console," the Tegra X1-powered Nvidia Shield. Not to be confused with Nvidia's recent Nvidia Shield. It i...

Sony's virtual reality hat Morpheus coming to PlayStation 4 in 2016

In the last month or so, invitations to various virtual reality headset demonstrations have made up a huge chunk of my inbox. GDC is into virtual reality.  I worry someone will pull some garish box out of their bag this ...

Escalator Pitch: Would you shell out for Sonic 2?

Indie developers make some cool as heck games, but they're not always so great at selling them. We want to them work on their pitch game until they're at Bumgarner levels and we want to take advantage of the the horrible, ho...

Destructoid saves the world! Sorry, Kyle

Last time on Destructoid Saves the World, I looked around the map, panicked, to find that Kyle MacGregor had died. I didn't even see him go. It was tragic. Brett Makedonski is actually en route to my home at the moment, ...

Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future

The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar...

Slain! is an homage to a particular kind of gothic, gory classic

We are not wanting for loving pixel art in this nostalgia-fueled retro renaissance, but Slain!'s Gothic horror manages to stand out the same way the sort of off kilter Altered Beast or Castlevania still do. Before "pixel art...

Bandai Namco is behind new space robot MOBA Supernova

You can play Supernova today. The MOBA from developer Primal Game Studios is publisher Bandai Namco's next push into the realm of free-to-play (you'll remember the Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates). Nam...

Xenoblade Chronicles X shows off dynamic weather, day-night cycle

Day and night cycles aren't new, but it's a pretty one at least. Actually, thinking on it, more RPGs (particularly Japanese RPGs) could benefit from a day and night cycle just for the perceived visual variation on the hours ...
