Video: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's new Stingray vehicle, Athena breakdown, and smart guns?

I got my hands on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel recently, and I've got some hot info on the new mechanics, and one of the new player characters, Athena the Gladiator. The game's new Stingray vehicle has a neat trick to it, the...

To dye for: Invisible Inc. is my kind of strategy-stealth game

A chasm in stealth games tends to be player skill and the supposed skills of super sleuth avatars. You're often eased into the situation, your lack of skill assumed, or you just fumble your way through -- especially with the ...

Fantasy Life is one of the easiest simulators ever to pick up and play

During a hands-on Nintendo event, I was given the option to play a number of upcoming games -- naturally, I gravitated towards Fantasy Life, which I've been waiting a few years to see in action overseas. Developed by the...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/12]

You should watch Ping Pong: The Animation. It's why Lebron James realized he needed to go back to Cleveland, true story. But be warned, watching other anime after will be hard because it leaves you extra acutely aware of how ...

Natural Doctrine is a brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game

Sure, Natural Doctrine doesn't look great (well, the environments; it does look better in miniature on the Vita). It's a far cry from director Atsushi Ii's gorgeous minimalism in Patapon. But Kadokawa Games' first intern...

Escape Dead Island is a single-player 'survival mystery'

The next Dead Island game isn't Dead Island 2. Of course, Dead Island: Riptide already showed the series' disregard for numeration. Counting the early access MOBA, Dead Island 2 should be Dead Island 5. But Dea...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [6/28]

Burn it all to the ground. I'm making guacamole.  Here's last week's post. Let's begin anew. [We post a lot of articles here at Destructoid. The endless, ouroboros news cycle has us burning the snake at both ends, w...

Platinum is making a Legend of Korra game, and it's pretty awesome

Yup, you read that headline correctly. Platinum Games, the maker of such fine titles as Mad World, Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, The Wonderful 101, and more, is creating a game based on The Legend of Korra series. It's being ...

Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement

What can be done freshen up the zombie genre at this point? Videogames, television shows, movies, comics -- virtually every pop culture medium's been infested by the craze, long ago hitting a saturation (and then oversaturati...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [6/21]

No longer tormented by the ants, I'm again able to stock Kahlua, which means my first white Russian in ages. With cream instead of milk, too. Now I'm going to go get tikka masala. Not bad. I walked in on my friend playing Gra...

Kyoto Wild is a quick but thoughtful Bushido brawler

Teddy Diefenbach is a busy guy. He's one of the developers on the high-profile indie title Hyper Light Drifter, but when he isn't doing that, he's making more games. Kyoto Wild is his side-project, and Diefenbach says he...

Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar

The reveal trailer for Dreadnought pushes a lot of the right buttons for science fiction fans. It puts potential players into the right frame of mind and really sets up the scale of the endeavor. Combatants will not be dartin...

The Talos Principle explores philosophy and lasers

Nestled in a parking lot across the street from the convention center in Los Angeles was Devolver Digital's phalanx of air conditioned campers. The publisher had a good mixture of highly anticipated titles like Hotline Miami ...

I couldn't believe the size of Dragon Age: Inquisition's world

Fantasy games have some of my favorite settings in all of videogames. Forests, mountains, chasms, rivers -- they all have a serenity and majesty about them that wonderfully adds to the sense of scale. It shouldn't surprise me...

Titan Souls makes you feel tiny as you take on the biggest bosses

One of the smaller games at E3 left the biggest impression on me. Titan Souls is a Ludum Dare entrant that was picked up by Devolver Digital to publish on PC, PS4, and PS Vita -- sort of an appropriate underdog's st...

Story of Seasons wants you to connect with your inner farmer

Fans of farming and lifestyle sims are no doubt familiar with the confusion surrounding the Bokujō Monogatari series. Natsume owned the trademark on the English title, Harvest Moon, but XSEED had the relationship wi...
