inFamous: Second Son is the fastest selling game in the franchise, says Sony

InFamous: Second Son is good. Really good, in fact. And it seems as if a number of other people agree, as Sony has just sent word that the global sales of inFamous: Second Son have reached one million within nine da...

Batman goes all Iron Man in the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC

The Last of Us PS4 remaster is real, according to a PlayStation Store listing (Update) photo
The Last of Us PS4 remaster is real, according to a PlayStation Store listing (Update)
by Chris Carter

[Update: Sony has confirmed The Last of Us Remastered. We can expect higher resolution character models, improved lighting, upgraded textures, and a director's commentary for all in-game cinematics featuring Neil Druckman, Troy Baker, and Ashley Johnson. This will also include the Left Behind expansion, Abandoned Territories map pack, and Reclaimed Territories pack. Various retailers are also providing various pre-order bonuses as well.]

The rumor of a Last of Us PS4 remaster has been doing around for some time now, and we seem to have full confirmation of its existence straight from the source. It's since been pulled, but Sony recently put up an advertisement for a "Day 1 Digital" title called The Last of Us: Remastered. The listing notes that it's $59.99, and for the PlayStation 4.

This is great news for those of you who haven't had a chance to play it yet, but since you can pick up the PS3 version on the cheap, we'll have to see if those "remastered" features are really worth it. Again, this is just a rumor, but it's said that the Left Behind DLC will be included.

Sign up for Epic Games' Fortnite alpha

Epic has kept mostly quiet about Fortnite for years now and in that time I've gone from being excited to not caring at all to really, really caring. Now that the studio has opened alpha sign-ups and shared a bunch of informat...

An early look at the PC version of Dark Souls II photo
An early look at the PC version of Dark Souls II
by Alasdair Duncan

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 me by surprise and I'm back to square one but I have to persevere, I need to keep pushing on. I have to learn about the enemies, their patterns, their routines. 

I swear I'll make it out of the tutorial area at some point.

Flying Hamster II is here for you, Wonder Boy fans

Flying Hamster was a shoot-'em-up (or should I say, "cute-'em-up") for PSP, PS Vita, and iOS. Its sequel is not that, at all -- it's much more compelling. Fans of the Wonder Boy / Monster World series are going to want to ta...

Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder photo
Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder
by Alessandro Fillari

Last year, the news of Ubisoft making an old-school throwback to the JRPG genre took a number of people by surprise. When Destructoid got the chance to check it out, there was a healthy amount of curiosity around it. Not too many people knew what to make of it, especially considering it was coming from the team that made Far Cry 3, which is a title that seems very far apart from it.

But after spending some time with Child of Light, about three hours to be exact, there might be more in common with these two titles than you think. I got the chance to talk with lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem, and saw what passion and a small team working on a unique throwback to JRPG titles managed to come up with.

Saints Row IV thinks highly of itself, releasing Game of the Century Edition

Ever since the third installment in the series, Saints Row has been a franchise that hasn't been afraid to toot its own horn. Not necessarily without cause, though -- after all, Saints Row IV was pretty darn good. B...

Rockstar will add heists to GTA Online this spring photo
Rockstar will add heists to GTA Online this spring
by Jordan Devore

Rockstar has detailed what it has in store for GTA Online and while there's quite a lot of content planned, my eyes went straight for the line about the long-awaited Heist Missions. They're coming at some point this spring -- that's all the company was willing to say. Drat!

Next week, players will be able to create their own Capture Jobs if they're tired of making and playing Deathmatches and Races. There's also the High Life Update in the works -- it will allow players to own a second property with another garage, introduce the Mental State player statistic so we know how crazy our peers are, and add stuff like the Ballpup Rifle, the Dinka Thrust motorcycle, more cars, and additional high-end apartments.

Beyond this, Rockstar says holiday-themed content is scheduled for GTA Online as well and it'll be rolling out Story Mode DLC eventually. There's also a preview of upcoming changes to the game that will be delivered by way of title updates and dynamic tuning, viewable below.
