Platinum is making a Legend of Korra game, and it's pretty awesome photo
Platinum is making a Legend of Korra game, and it's pretty awesome
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

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 published by Activision as a download-only title for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

We all saw the reveal teaser yesterday, but now it's time I told you how the game plays. Platinum is aiming to ship this one out in the fall of this year, and based on what I got to play of the alpha build, the game is shaping up to be a pretty solid action brawler.

No Man's Sky developers want players to work things out for themselves
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

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 are trying to achieve. 

One of the big things about No Man's Sky is that they really don't want to get too specific about all the little things players can do. The trailers and screens give some clues and all that, but otherwise they want players to just discover things for themselves. 

We were still able to learn a few more specifics though, but just enough that we still can't quite wrap our heads around this universe exploration game.

E3 2014 is all about the games this year. The consoles launched last year, so now it's time for everyone to put up or shut up with their lineups that will make the new-gen worth it.

We nominated a ton of game s for Destructoid's E3 awards, spanning 13 categories. We even brought back the best fighting category as there's a lot of fighting games this year! We'll be announcing winners early next week after we've recovered from E3, but in the meantime you can see all of our top picks from the show below.

And remember, we also have a community choice award where you can vote on your favorite game of E3 yourself.

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!

Along with our open world walkthrough, Max Scoville and I went ahead and checked out the competitive multiplayer in Destiny. We gave both maps a spin, and we also checked out each playable class for the videos.

The biggest thing you need to know is that all the weapons you can carry in the main game can be brought into multiplayer. Even bigger, you can switch your guns at any time from your inventory while in the middle of the match. No grabbing guns from the ground, no limited loadouts, just whatever you have with you. Up to at least 18 guns!

I rode an elephant in Far Cry 4 and went on a complete rampage

You all saw the gameplay footage of Far Cry 4, right? Well I got to play through the demo myself, specifically focused on taking over the outpost (now referred to as fortresses). We saw how to take it over from the sky at the press conference, but I decided to take things differently by riding a big elephant into battle.  It was glorious.

This marks the second E3 we've seen Tom Clancy's The Division, an ambitious online open-world RPG that sees a players dealing with a disaster after society has fallen. This is also the second year in a row that we could not get our hands-on with the game.

Instead, Ubisoft played through a build for us. First they showed us what you all got to see during Ubisoft's press conference (video above). Then we got to see the same area, but during a nighttime setting.

Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world photo
Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The folks at Bungie gave Destructoid full access to the Destiny Alpha just before E3. You may remember that I wasn't all that excited for the game the last time I saw it, but having full freedom to do whatever and being able to discover things on my own has really changed my opinion.

I'm way more excited for Destiny again now, and you can see why as Max Scoville and I play nearly an hour's worth of the open world aspect known as Patrols. Plus we went and checked out the social space hub called The Tower at the very end of our playthrough.

For more on Destiny, check out Chris Carter's full hands-on breakdown, and we'll have some videos of the multiplayer PvP stuff later today.
