Here's our Resident Evil reward for infecting Raccoon City

Well, we did it -- the contagion spread and now Raccoon City is 100% screwed up. Go us. As a reward for essentially just registering with Capcom's site for the upcoming Resident Evil remaster to help "spread the virus," Chris...

PS4, PS Vita ports of Moon Hunters crowdfunded

Oh, good. Moon Hunters is now also coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in addition to PC/Mac. This is one of those games that looked interesting to me initially -- it's an action-RPG with co-op centered around mythology, ther...

We're getting Castlevania: Circle of the Moon on Wii U in October

Hearing that Castlevania: Circle of the Moon was headed to the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan got me all worked up a couple weeks ago and I'm still eager to replay the Game Boy Advance title. Not much longer now, thankfully -...

Vane looks like it belongs next to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus

Hearing that Friend & Foe was made up of some former The Last Guardian developers got me to take a look at Vane, but I stayed for the .gifs and never wanted to leave -- they're mesmerizing! Here's some Tokyo Game Show f...

October's Games with Gold are Bad Company 2, Darksiders II, and Chariot photo
October's Games with Gold are Bad Company 2, Darksiders II, and Chariot
by Jordan Devore

Here are your Games with Gold for October. Xbox 360 owners with an active Xbox Live Gold account will be able to download Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for free from October 1 - 15, followed by Darksiders II from October 16 - 31. Xbox One owners will have the entire month to nab Chariot.

Bad Company 2 had a more lighthearted story than its contemporaries and the multiplayer was a total blast. For reasons that escape me, I completely lost interest in Darksiders II after a few hours -- need to try again, one day. And Chariot sounds like a good cooperative romp.

Does anyone else download this stuff even if they own the game on disc? I feel odd doing it.

Set the world on fire in Total War: Attila

I didn't throw out any guesses for what the next Total War would be, but if I had, wow, I would've been way off. Creative Assembly's next installment, Total War: Attila, will follow none other than Attila the Hun when it rel...

A closer look at Metal Gear Solid V's eyepatch-wearing dog companion

Oh, how I love Diamond Dog. He's my BFF. Following that 20 minutes of Metal Gear Solid V footage out of Tokyo Game Show, here are some related screenshots featuring the pup, Quiet, and Snake's robot hand doing its thing. So, so glad The Phantom Pain is coming to PC as well as consoles.

Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday photo
Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday
by Jordan Devore

This week on Steam, you can check out the superb Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ for free as Namco plays the part of a "friendly" drug dealer. The promotion lasts until Monday at 10:00am Pacific and in that time the game and its DLC are 66 percent off.

Building up a huge chain of ghosts -- a ghost train, if you will -- and then eating them all in the span of a couple seconds is so damn satisfying. See that image up there? Uh huh.

Just play this already. Cancel plans. Shun responsibilities. There is only time for Pac-Man, now.

In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, players will be able to use Lisa, the apparition from P.T., as a decoy. It's times like these that remind me why I adore videogames. The little touches, y'know? The weirder, the bette...

Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon photo
Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon
by Jordan Devore

On Thursday, ArenaNet will kick off a week-long trial for Guild Wars 2. You'll be able to play the MMORPG for free from 12:00am Pacific on September 25 until 11:59pm Pacific on October 1.

Trial accounts can be opened ahead of time, so I'd suggest you go take care of that now to maximize your time. Note: there are some restrictions placed on trial players.

Just last week, community member Solar Pony Django put up a blog to generate interest in potentially starting a Destructoid guild. Take a look. Keep forgetting I own this game.
