Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels photo
Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels
by Jordan Devore

I'm continually amazed and frightened by how much mileage I've gotten out of Hyrule Warriors. This game is massive without DLC, and with it, god help us all -- it just keeps going.

After regularly playing since launch in late September, I've managed to clear the first Adventure Mode map, most of the Master Quest map, and around half of the Twilight Princess map. But just when I feel like my progress is coming together, more content drops. Not that I'm complaining.

There's still the Majora's Mask DLC ($7.99 standalone, or bundled with the other DLC packs for $19.99) on February 5. We got our first real look at that content -- Young Link, Tingle, three new costumes, and an Adventure map -- during today's Nintendo Direct. It's gonna be good.

I'm ready to start rocking Tingle, but if your current favorite characters aren't as leveled-up as you'd like them to be, the Twilight Princess map can help. In particular, the "Divisive Plan" missions (locations here) are ideal for grinding experience points. You'll face off against a single warrior, like Darunia or Fi, who will split apart into multiple clones as you deal damage. More clones equals more XP. Just be sure to take advantage of their elemental weakness (e.g., Water beats Fire)!

A game about Frozen's Anna giving birth

Another treasure from the mobile games space courtesy of former Destructoid editor Nick Chester. This one's called Anna Giving Birth and while I ponder what kind of audience this iPhone/iPad game exists to serve, I'll let the...

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer

This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute. This is out exclusively for Wii U on February 20, 2015. Who's in?

Congrats on the Academy Award, SpeedTree

Build castles and blow them up with a trebuchet in Medieval Engineers

Keen Software has built a million-person-strong audience for Space Engineers, but I've stayed away from the work-in-progress construction sandbox game so far. Steam Early Access often has that effect on me. The studio's next...

Xbox gets Call of Duty's star-studded Exo Zombies DLC first on January 27

Zombies again. It's what people know, I guess. Comforting, familiar zombies. With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first DLC pack, Havoc ($15 standalone, or included in the $50 season pass), the undead will don exoskeletons ...

Grab some headphones and listen to this Hotline Miami 2 song

The music and gameplay of Hotline Miami are so intertwined in my mind that I'm hesitant to listen to tracks off the sequel's soundtrack beforehand. Oh, what the hell? One can't hurt! This song, "The Way Home, comes from Magi...

Grand Theft Auto V PC pushed to March, system specs revealed photo
Grand Theft Auto V PC pushed to March, system specs revealed
by Jordan Devore

I should have known something was up, but here it is: Grand Theft Auto V won't be available on PC this month as previously announced. Rockstar has delayed the game to March 24, 2015.

The good news, at least for console owners, is that online heists are almost here at long last. That's the plan, anyway. You'll be able to find and play those through GTA Online "in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch." Heists will be playable on PC at launch on March 24.

Rockstar also sent out new screenshots and system requirements, viewable below.

Judo is 'vintage sports games' meets 'rolling and throwing in Super Smash Bros.'

Laboratory Games started Judo as "a fun side project," and at a glance, it might still look like one. But that's part of the charm, I think. The studio brought an arcade-cabinet version of the PC/Mac game to PAX Prime last y...
