Game with the Dtoid Community!
The things happening at MIT are scary. Above is a picture from their robotics lab, and have you heard about the cheetah? Way to create our own destruction folks. Fucking hell. Moving along from our imminent doom, how is every...
Who doesn't like The Shawshank Redemption? It's one of those films where the mere mention of it will light up a room -- before you get to chatting about some of the more somber parts, of course. Thanks to CineFix, you c...
Go for it
D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die was awesome on Xbox One, and it's looking awesome on PC. You can try it out starting today by way of a demo, which is up now on Access Games' official Japanese site. It looks like the English ve...
17 straight minutes of Bison
Capcom UK has a series called "The World Warriors," where they discuss the background of a Street Fighter character, and delve into some pretty neat info. You'll find out where M. Bison came from design-wise, and little...
That's one for every Robin made
The highly anticipated fourth wave of amiibo figures hit stores today and by all accounts sold out within a matter of minutes. This should be good news for Nintendo, but sources within the struggling video game company say ma...
CD Projekt RED says to keep playing
Players have encountered a glitch in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that's preventing them from earning experience points from certain quests. CD Projekt RED says it will resolve the issue "as soon as possible across all platforms ...
Hopefully they'll stay that way
Splatoon is finally here. There's been quite a bit of community buzz regarding the game, and in my view, it turned out to be a pretty great shooter despite the fact that it's a bit light on content at launch.
The really ...
All but confirmed now
As if yesterday's rumor that Microsoft is set to reveal an improved Xbox One controller in June wasn't substantiated enough, we have an international retailer to help back everything up. Bless those international retailers; t...
Releasing this September for PC and PS4
A series of live-action videos and an alternate-reality game have led to this: 12 minutes of uncut footage from Frictional's next first-person horror title, SOMA. It's coming to PC and PS4 at long last on September 22, 2015....
Octopus, I love you
Happy Splatoon Day, everyone! With the release of Nintendo's new squid-based cooperative shooter, it only seems appropriate to celebrate by taking a look at some of the great cephalopod video game characters out there.
Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will arrive next month on 3DS and Vita in the west, but they won't be bringing along a really cool piece of content on the former platform -- Nintendo costumes. In the original Jap...
If you've been itching for a new champion in League of Legends, Ekko has arrived. He's' described as the "Boy Who Shattered Time." He's an assasin, and his abilities include the power to stack resonance on enemies after hitt...
Look, Jurassic Park people. Just because you have this wrapped up in a Lego veneer doesn't mean the outcome's going to be any different. We've all seen the movies. Why should we expect vicious dinosaurs won't attack this time?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I never should've watched Jurassic Park III.
From pixel to hero
I've always been fascinated by games that tackle evolution. Not necessarily the scientific principle, but the mechanic -- though a few titles like the brilliant E.V.O.: Search for Eden have managed to address both.
Adventures of Pip which features a tiny pixel that turns into a real boy, and then a hero, isn't quite as groundbreaking, but it's still fun to play.
Today, Wave 4 of the amiibo shopping "experience" begins. We already assumed it was going to be hell on earth based on the pre-order process, and it turned out to be fairly uninspiring all around as shops opened across the US...
She looks awesome
Kazumi Mishima will be playable in Tekken 7, Bandai Namco has announced, and man does she look formidable. In addition to sporting a pretty awesome fighting style she also can call upon a freaking tiger to do her bidding. Pr...
The UK, it exists and Destructoid now has writers there. Great British Pounds. Eastenders. Steptoe and Son. The Destructoid UK Podcast (DestrUKtoid).
Destructoid UK Editor Laura Dale is joined this week by Joe Parlock an...
I SAID, LOOK BEHIND YOU
Though Konami wants to "scorch the earth" and deny that P.T. was possibly the best game reveal in the history of forever (do I still sound bitter?), there are some determined to keep the dream -- or nightmare -- alive.
Insert Weakest Link joke here
Sony headlined UK consumer rights programme Watchdog last night.
Following a recap of Sony's troublesome history with hacks and insecure customer data, the programme took umbrage with Sony Europe's digital refund po...
Prepare thy wallet, the harvest is nigh
On a dark, humid night, you hear it. Slowly, it creeps towards you – clink. Clink. Clink. It sounds inhuman. You close your eyes, hoping the thing won’t find you… but it does. It always does.
You can feel i...
Another in a long line of KS failures
Here’s a fun game dev fact for you: making an MMO is a long, hard, and expensive task that will generally end in failure and misery for everyone involved. If huge companies like BioWare can screw it up, it’s proba...
Update: The stream is over, but feel free to watch the replay embedded below!
Tonight the game you've all been waiting for releases at midnight, Splatoon. I'm so darned excited I'm sitting here dripping ink in anticipation, b...
New game from WayForward vets
Breaking News! I just received a top secret communique via the World Wide Web that reads as follows ~ "Due to popular demand & the magic of @NintendoAmerica, Adventures of Pip will launch on #WiiU early: June 4!" Destruc...
Too good to be true?
This supposed image of the Prima strategy guide for Splatoon shows some curious weapons including, oh my god, NES Zappers. The names even reflect the light guns' release years!
Is this stuff real? One of the weapons, the Inkb...
$10 for iPad and Android tablets
With Desktop Dungeons now available for iPad and Android tablets, I can easily see it becoming an obsession all over again. This is $10, straight up; no in-app purchases, no bullshit. The Enhanced Edition's daily challenges a...
Step one: Play Space Marine
There's a lot to love in this Humble Weekly Bundle of Relic games, but I have to give a special shout out to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Years later, I'm still amazed it turned out as well as it did. Satisfying shooting, ...
Where there's a will, there's a whale
Whether we like it or not, mobile gaming has become huge. And for a publisher like NCSOFT that has long been an exclusive MMO provider, the company is making the smart move of shifting some of those dying genre resources over...
Let's go, giant robot of steel!
A blast of '70s-inspired action is bombarding Steam next week in Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser.
Announced for a western release nearly two years ago, the mecha shooter from doujin studio Astro Port (Gigantic Army) is fina...
The thing that gets us to the thing
In case you couldn't tell, the 1980s is having a bit of comeback. With so many games and films (Kung Fury is out today!) seeking to emulate the vibrant and lively era, there's plenty of people out there feeling nostalgic for ...
