That's a paddling
One unlikely Wii U game looks like it'll be reanimated with an Xbox One port, Ubisoft's ZombiU. An Australian Rating Classification board listing for "Zombi (Xbox One)" is a good hint that Ubisoft intends to repackage the unp...
Killing with friends is so much better
In order to continue the hype-train coverage that is so much of the norm for today's AAA mega franchises (and probably lesser games too), this hot-off-the-presses marketing video for Call of Duty Black Ops III will take you on a 13-minute tour of the "cooperative campaign with the Cyber Core tutorial."
Sit back, relax, and let the sounds of war bathe you in a warming glow.
Let's hear it straight from Eidos
There's been a negative reaction online to Eidos Montreal's use of the racially-charged term "mechanical Apartheid" in its promotion of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Speaking with Destructoid today, we asked the title's Exec...

Same goes for four-player co-op
Treyarch showed competitive multiplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III as well as the game's four-person co-op campaign at Sony's E3 2015 press conference. The former had wallrunning and sliding all over the place while the...

Or a male protaganist
Arkane Studios announced Dishonored 2 on Bethesda's E3 2015 stream, featuring the option to play as a female protagonist named Emily Kaldwin. In the trailer Emily takes on four-armed robots, and she does some cool shadow pow...
We'll find out soon enough
I'm a huge Fallout nerd. I can wax poetic about the Fallout games and how much they mean to me all day (I've done it before), so to say I'm looking forward to what Bethesda does with Fallout 4 is a little bit of an understatement.
I do have some requests though. A wish list of things I would personally like to see in the next installment.
Hands-on impressions of the story mode
[Disclosure: Years ago, Aaron Linde used to write for Destructoid. He now works on Battleborn at Gearbox Software. As always, no relationships, personal or professional, were factored into this preview.]
To sum up Battleborn ...
I'm (soon to be) on a boat
I was always intrigued by The Ship, but the timing wasn't ever right for me to play it. Back when it was active I didn't have a gaming PC, and once I built my current rig the community just wasn't there. With today's announc...
Exclusive content for Tower of Guns
Tower of Guns, a delightful FPS roguelike, and Ether One, a beautiful adventure game, are going backwards in time and releasing in physical boxes this September. Ether One will have retail copies for PC and PS4, while To...
Lo Wang returns
2013's Shadow Warrior reboot was pretty great. Developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital seem to think so too, as they have just announced a full follow-up, ingeniously titled Shadow Warrior 2. Like most ...
Go team silver foxes
Well, Steven asked for more old men and Overwatch delivered. Reinhardt, the latest character to receive a personal sizzle reel, is a 61-year-old self-styled knight who fights evil by encasing himself in a robotic suit of arm...
Beta safe than sorry, right?
From here on in, all new Halo games will be preceded by public beta testing.
"Going forward, you will never see a Halo game coming out without a beta. [Master Chief Collection] was obviously painful for our fans and for...
Preserve 60FPS gameplay
I have only ever played Halo campaigns in split-screen, couch-sharing co-op. This streak will end with Halo 5: Guardians, according to this month's Game Informer cover story, because Halo 5 does not support splitscreen co-op,...
Exterminate the heretics
I've been interested in Space Hulk: Deathwing ever since they put out that trailer with the groovy music from Kadebostany a few months back. Today, Streum On Studio (the same team who brought us the wonderfully strange E.Y.E....
Black Ops 3 confirmed for old consoles
No matter what Activision says, warfare hasn't advanced all that far. That's evident by the fact that Black Ops 3 will release on legacy consoles, making it the eleventh Call of Duty title on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Fresh story details
Uncanny. Nathan Fillion, who played Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck in the well-liked Halo 3: ODST, will be back for Halo 5: Guardians. That's him up there looking like his usual dashing self.
Game Informer has new details about...
Get ready, Guardian
Destiny's next content drop, The Taken King, will release on September 15 and open up a third subclass and ability for each of the Guardian classes according to a report from Kotaku.
Kotaku is asserting this following a tip o...
Blizzard's first new franchise in 17 years, Overwatch, keeps adding to its cast of original characters. Well, as original as grouchy dwarves and Man With No Name knock off cowboys can be, anyways.
The defensive-minded Torbj&...
These guys did!
Former Far Cry 2 developers Julien Cuny & Louis-Pierre Pharand have formed a new studio to release their new take on first-person shooters... by adding racing into the mix.
The Montreal-based developers describe the...
No care for fine interior decoration
Rock, flag, and eagle time; Ubisoft's slowly pulling back the curtain on all of Rainbow Six Siege's international operators, and today the Americans get profiled. As is to be expected, all of them have excellently punchy nam...
It's been a long time comin', but the free-to-play PlanetSide 2 is going to be on the PS4 in just a few short weeks. Starting June 23 you too can be overwhelmed by the enormous scale of the persistent war.
Fired employee tells all
[Update: Looks like this is most likely a hoax. The leaker said they had accidentally given information to Kotaku, which in turn caused her to get fired. Kotaku confirmed today that no information was ever given to them by th...
Barbecue some Zeds
Despite being in Early Access, Killing Floor 2 has been the multiplayer title I've returned to any time I get a chance. While everyone is alternating between kids and squids and skids and quids, I've been dissecting Zeds...
Sharing is caring
4A Games has rolled out demos for the revamped Redux releases of Metro 2033 and Last Light on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, each offering "about one-third of the total game." For free.
The trial for Metro 2033 Redux covers the ...
We're free from the tyranny finally
A few years ago, I used to read through a forum dedicated to making maps for TF2. It had people producing stuff that might be even better than the official maps from Valve. They would collaborate, share tips, and teach each o...
Third time is a charm
Another year, another round of Call of Duty DLC -- four rounds, yet again, in the case of Advanced Warfare. We've already had the Havoc and Ascendance packs drop so far as part of the Season Pass, and while they weren't bad offerings, nothing about them really vied for a purchase.
With Supremacy, there may be a case for the pass, at the very least at a discount down the line.
Looking at life down the barrel of a gun
Shooters seem simple. You step into the shoes of your typical tough guy space-marine or mercenary and empty clip after clip into the faces of Nazis, or aliens, or alien-Nazis from the vaguely disembodied gun bobbing up and do...
