Johnny Gat joins the roster of Divekick

When I first saw the trailer above, I thought "C'mon, Maurice Tan, former Destructoid writer/current Deep Silver PR dude, April Fools' Day was last week, you're a bit late with the jokes." But no, it's no joke; Saints Row ma...

See the ugly side of football in Dirty Sexy Soccer

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...

An early look at the PC version of Dark Souls II

How many times have I died in Dark Souls II now? 12, 14... 16? Truth is I've already lost count of how many times I've taken a blade to the chest or an arrow to the face. Whenever I think I'm making progress, something takes ...

This trailer for Warside doesn't let up for a second

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...

Caffeine is an oddly titled space horror game

It feels like we've waited a while for some space-based horror games to arrive and now there's a glut incoming; Routine, Stasis, and Alien: Isolation are incoming later this year with SOMA from Frictional Games coming in 201...

Star Citizen's Chris Roberts responds to Oculus buyout

Facebook's acquisition of the Oculus Rift company was a shock to say the least, and whilst industry figures have expressed cautious optimism over the buyout, there's still a sense of unease as to what the social media giant h...

Is Blood Dragon III: Vietnam War 2 just an April Fools' Day joke?

Look, my attitude to April Fools' Day is that if it looks like bollocks and it sounds like bollocks, then it probably is bollocks. However, after last year's reveal of the amazing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on April Fools' Day, ...

Dead Synchronicity is great-looking sci-fi adventure game

I think it's fair to say Kickstarter has given point-'n'-click adventure games a boost, not that the genre really needed it. Dead Synchronicity is a new adventure game from Spanish developer Fictiorama Studios which tells th...
