Spontaneous pole dancing in The Wolf Among Us

Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v...

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...

Welcome to The Weird Story of Waldermar the Warlock

When a developer emails you and says "Well, yet another Kickstarter," you have to smile. At least Paco at Spanish indie studio enComblot has a sense of humor about the state of crowdfunding. His team is currently working on ...

Below is a hardcore game that you'll want to take your time with

Ever since Below was teased at Microsoft's E3 press briefing last year, it's been one of the titles that I've been most intrigued by. The art style and the fact that Capy Games was the developer were the two main reasons...

Last Life is a sci-fi, murder-mystery adventure game set on Mars

It's no secret that I've been loving the adventure games that have been finding life via Kickstarter and Last Life is no different. Described by developer Sam Farmer, this is an episodic "sci-fi noir adventure game in which ...

PlayStation 4 is next for Stick it to the Man!

I have not played the funny mind-reading adventure game Stick it to the Man! yet. I should. Ian gave it a 9.5 out of 10, the maniac! After well-received releases on PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and PC, it's now making its way to P...

Batman goes all Iron Man in the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC

DC All Access is showing off what we can expect out of the Batman: Arkham Origins "Cold, Cold Heart" downloadable content, and it looks like DC is taking a page out of Iron Man's playbook. To deal with Mr. Freeze, Batman wil...

Review: The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile

In some ways, Telltale's Wolf Among Us has topped its already stellar Walking Dead franchise. Although it doesn't feature a true post-apocalyptic setting, it still manages to feel bleak and hopeless in its own ...

Mega64's Stanley Parable video is about guys who aren't Stanley

Mega64's latest video is about one of my favorite interactive experiences from last year, The Stanley Parable. But, these people look confused. Maybe they don't share my enthusiasm for it. Alternatively, maybe they're confus...

There are eight days left to fund Dead Synchronicity

It was the end of March when I saw Dead Synchronicity on Kickstarter, a great-looking science-fiction adventure game with heavy horror and dystopic themes. I've played the demo which is built on the alpha version of the game...

Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect is now available for pre-order

The fact that a new Tex Murphy game is just a few weeks away makes me really happy; it might not kick off a rebirth of the full-motion video adventure game genre but darn, it feels good to have Tex back in 2014. If you're ke...

Play The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile next week

It strikes me as odd that Telltale wouldn't have the release dates for The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile locked down in time for its launch trailer, but here we are, just a day later. Episode 3 of the Fables series will launc...

There are far worse places to die than The Long Dark's Pacific Northwest

Hinterland has come out with what it's calling the first in-game screenshots for its first-person survival game The Long Dark. If that's the case, what were those images we saw before, exactly? No matter. This is a game which...
