Who needs a stylus anyways?
The Japanese version of Fire Emblem Fates -- called Fire Emblem If there -- is available to purchase as of yesterday and new information and spoilers are starting to pour out. If you consider minor features of a gam...
Definitely not creepy
It's getting late. Have you applied the minty paste to the exposed part of your skeleton? If so, let good old Uncle Jack read you a bedtime story. It will be fun! You won't have nightmares. Probably.
One of the neat things a...
And if the environment were invisible
Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, who...
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for $13.20!
I haven't made much use of the PlayStation Network flash sales -- the best deals are often for games I own -- but I'm happy they're a regular occurrence. There's another one this weekend.
Bound by Flame ($14)
My dad could beat up your dad
True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...
I don't have much else to say. Hells yeah. Let's play some games and celebrate!
It's about to get gay in here
Last night the boyfriend and I got together -- giggitty -- and shot this latest episode of Newstoid since Jess Brohard is out hunting fugitives with Dog the bounty hunter or whatever. Who knew we would talk about marriage eq...
Walk on walls
When you jump off a ledge in Willy Chyr's Relativity, you can keep falling. Forever.
The abstract world, made up of floating platforms and puzzle rooms, loops. Why climb a huge flight of stairs when you can just "fall" to the...
Hope you snagged one
Like Fallout's Wasteland, resources are limited and not everyone's going to get the most sought-after of Fallout 4 memorabilia: a replica Pip-Boy. Yes, people quickly scooped up the limited number of Pip-Boy editions of ...
Two new weapons are being added tonight
We've got some Splatoon update information to share! Two new weapons are being added to the game tonight, and an actual balance patch is coming on June 30. The two weapons tonight are the Carbon Roller and Custom Dual Squelch...
This week's Destiny snafu is a case study in the making.
There was a backlash against the collector's edition of an upcoming expansion, The Taken King, for locking content behind a way-too-steep price tag. Bungie came back wi...
Plus a discount for North America
After a short delay, Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains is launching across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand next week on July 2, Atlus USA announced today.
If you're curious as to why the Nintendo 3DS game is being rel...
'It felt like the right time'
Bethesda kicked off E3 2015 a day earlier than usual this year, but don't expect it to become tradition. The publisher's Hollywood spectacle was well-received, and that alone would coax some companies into making it an annual...
Check your inbox
DICE has been emailing invites to the Star Wars Battlefront alpha on Origin. Well, more accurately, these are invites to apply for the alpha (which can be done here). No guarantees you'll get in, as "space in the Closed Alpha...
When a custom controller outfit offered to let us design our own tailor-made gamepad, it was a proposal we couldn't refuse. Except designing things is hard. So we rolled the dice and left that task in their hands, hoping thei...
Hey, what are you doing right now? Fuck you, because it's not as cool as what I'm doing right now, which is listening to KK Slider covering Outkast's "Hey Ya!"
Now I'm listening to KK Slider doing Johnny Cash's "Hurt."
So many good options
We've hemmed. We've hawed. Destructoid's editors and judges have kindly suggested, boldly voted, bickered, scolded, stabbed each other with rapiers, revenge-slept with each other's illegitimate cousins, and finally have come ...
I still love those demon designs
Omega Force's action-RPG about hunting Oni has come to Steam. Great news! There are few if any games like this available on PC. But because it's Koei Tecmo, Toukiden: Kiwami costs $59.99.
This is an expanded version of Toukid...
Hold onto your butts
Another year, another beloved franchise gets the LEGO treatment. This year, blocks and dinosaurs come together in LEGO Jurassic World, a compilation of games spanning the entire Jurassic Park film franchise. Released simultan...
Unless you're on AMD hardware
SteamOS, Valve's answer to Linux gaming, has been rather quiet recently. SteamOS is releasing later this year, and it looks like Valve just took the next big step towards achieving that goal. A brand new version of SteamOS, c...
3D Realms just shared its E3 gameplay trailer for the upcoming Bombshell project, and man does it look cheesy as all hell. Whether that's a good or a bad thing by the time the game hits I don't know, but for now you can...
Who's on first?
But if I'm here...and you're here...who's driving the boat?!
Tetsuya Nomura is directing the Final Fantasy VII remake, and he's already talked about ways in which it will differ from the 1997 original aside from just the visu...
Par for the heavens
When our story began last week, I was a level 53 Paladin, soldiering through the new content for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. I stand before you now as a level 60, having played everything that's currently available.
My opinion on the expansion hasn't changed much, which is a good thing.
Dibs on Miko
Jordan got some hands-on time with Battleborn at E3, and while his write up does a good job of laying down the basics, sometimes it's helpful to see a video in order to really get how a game plays. Now us poor, decrepit non-...
Still a PS4 exclusive
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will be making its way to the PS4 on October 6 in North America, and October 9 in Europe, NIS has announced. It will feature a new Overlord named Void Dark, and a demon who stands against him...
Bastion, the gentle robot
I'm pretty excited for Overwatch. Not just because we rarely get a real arena shooter these days -- the track record of Blizzard is near-flawless (yes, I even enjoyed vanilla Diablo III). It's interesting to see them go...
Rocksteady "working like crazy" to fix the issues
Rocksteady co-founder and game director, Sefton Hill, supports Warner Bros.' decision to pull the borked PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight from sale.
In a tweet late last night, Hill also added that the studio's "best ...
He's not paranoid; he just doesn't trust anyone
Wondering why Nintendo glossed right over the NX during its E3 presentation? Blame Nintendo's competitors -- Nintendo boss Iwata certainly does.
"We can't talk about the NX," Iwata said in yesterday's investor call (acc...
Tarzan remake starring Donkey Kong
Disney and Nintendo have never really had a good relationship. Sure there was Epic Mickey, but then Epic Mickey 2 was released on every platform. Then there was Wreck-It Ralph, which only featured a few minor Ninten...
It was fine on PS3, even finer on PS4?
The Last Guardian dropped off the face of the earth for a few years, didn’t it? Well, turns out that may have been less Team ICO’s Fumito Ueda’s decision and more due to behind the scenes decisions at Sony.
