Infamous: First Light shows off how great Fetch really is

Jack of all trades, master of none. Sure Delson from Infamous: Second Son has the ability to suck up other people's powers for his own, which is pretty cool in its own right. But those that just have one specific power to man...

Alien: Isolation is haunting and uncompromisingly scary

Though it was initially seen as "Jaws-in-space," the legacy for Alien is certainly much more pristine than the one with the giant shark. Originally released in 1979, the first Alien would eventually become a much-loved horror...

Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It ...

Assassin's Creed Unity's two big changes that I'm excited for

Okay, so technically there's three big changes that everyone will be excited about, the third being the whole two- to four-player cooperative experience in Assassin's Creed Unity. Personally I'm not all that looking forward t...

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 ...

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...

Dead Island 2 wants to be cool and kickass

The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th...

No Man's Sky developers want players to work things out for themselves

No Man's Sky. We've been abuzz about this game ever since the first trailer was revealed late last year, and today Destructoid got to see a live gameplay demo showing off the amazing scope that the developers at Hello Games a...

First hands-on with Lords of the Fallen

Where some E3 meetings have PR people hovering or hands-off slide shows to watch, the meeting with CI Games for Lords of the Fallen was on the other end of the spectrum. There was no briefing or helpful tips, just a station s...

The new Lara Croft adventure is all sorts of fun with four players

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was pretty fun for what it was: a new take on the beloved character where you're running and gunning with a friend through all sorts of dangers.  Now, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is bringing that same formula over to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with the major addition being four-player co-op. Quadruple the fun!

Assassin's Creed Unity captures the liveliness of revolutionary Paris

Ubisoft took a bold step in opting to release Assassin's Creed Unity exclusively on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. With a fragmented userbase on consoles, publishers are mostly taking the predictable approach of launching games ...

Batman: Arkham Knight pushed back to 2015

When Batman: Arkham Knight was announced back in March, they said we could expect it this year. You know how that goes. Now it's coming in 2015.  Rocksteady showed off Arkham Knight at a pre-E3 event a few weeks back. Th...

Batman: Arkham Knight: Batmobile can transform into a freakin' tank!

We gave you our impressions from the very first look at Batman: Arkham Knight back in March, but now we're back with a twist. That Batmobile we talked so much about? Yeah, it's great. Cruisin' around Gotham and blowing up sh*t is never going to be anything but great. But they were holding out on us: The Batmobile can transform into a freakin' tank!

First hands-on of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor won me over

I had absolutely no expectations for  Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I’ve never played any of the franchise games, and I knew very little about the upcoming title. But my first hands on was a very pleasant surprise. A mere 45 minutes of play of its sandbox game got its hooks in me and now I'm totally sold.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is a tricky balancing act

Robot Entertainment's flagship title, Orcs Must Die!, has been something of a one-trick pony, albeit a very good pony at that. Both games in the franchise thus far have been tower defense games, and, as you can probably disce...

The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series

The developers at Toys For Bob are back in the saddle with Skylanders Trap Team, the next entry in their hit toys-meet-videogame franchise. This time the hook involves you capturing villains and enslaving brainwashing reform...
