That sure is some pretty music
Those of you who listen to the Destructoid UK podcast will likely already know I'm not a huge fan of Destiny. Don't get me wrong; it's a good game, it's just not for me. That said, the soundtrack in Destiny is something I can...
Are you an 'existing and active' player?
With Destiny's new expansion The Taken King launching next week, the game just received a new update that is too large to install on last-gen consoles with less than 20GB of storage built in.
When this was announced las...
Praise the mighty Shazbot on this day
Plenty of people (myself included) have been upset about Hi-Rez’s treatment of the pretty damn excellent FPS Tribes Ascend. Development was abandoned a few years ago, and ever since Smite has been the developer’s ...

'Strip the flesh, salt the wound'
Current-generation console owners have been able to get their Borderlands fix via The Handsome Collection, but the game that started it all is notably missing from the HD rerelease. Soon enough, Xbox One users will have a way...
Revenge really DOES solve everything!
Every time I remember Dishonored 2 is coming, emotions my normal grumpy demeanor are simply not used to emerge. Emotions I have never felt before like… like… sheer excitement. Playing as Emily Kaldwin being a b...
Because matchmaking always works...
DICE has a history of controversy when it comes to server browsers in its games. Before release, there was a lot of criticism of Battlelog in Battlefield 3, which saw the server list removed from the game and shoved into your...
It hath emerged from beta
Though it's been possible to play Killing Floor 2's Incinerate 'N Detonate update since last week, it's now available to all. If you've grown bored with the lack of content in the Early Access, this should rejuvenate your des...
Enough military speak to sink a fleet
Halo 5: Guardians is on the horizon, and so 343 Industries has given us a peek of the game’s opening cinematic.
It’s got your usual Halo stuff: Covenant, people in absurdly big armour, and lots of holograms. The ...
Skill shots and domination streaks
Oh hey, are you itching to see more footage of Cliff Bleszinski's upcoming futuristic sci-fi shooter LawBreakers already? Well, thanks to the official LawBreakers Twitter account this weekend, we have a whole bunch of new pie...
Gameplay trailer shows four classes
Two days ago we got the first reveal for Cliff Bleszinski's new arena shooter LawBreakers. Today we get a brief look at the gameplay and if I had to describe it with one word, that word would be "motion."
Each of the four cla...
Releasing next year
Cliff Bleszinski (Unreal Tournament, Gears of War) and Arjan Brussee (Guerrilla Games co-founder) have been off building something called Project BlueStreak at their new studio Boss Key Productions. It's a futuristic first-p...
Remember the kid named Turok?
Remember when Acclaim offered $10,000 to parents who named their kid "Turok?" I still get a good laugh out of that whenever I think of the series.
Beyond that legacy they were actually fun little shooters, and now both Turok&...
Voice-controlled zombie survival
This seems like one of those "Wouldn't it be cool if...?" ideas. It is, in fact, rather cool.
RealmPictures organized a live-action first-person shooter and "invited unsuspecting people on Chatroulette, Omegle, and Skype to t...
The number 'very, very low'
The insanely funded space game Star Citizen has been offering refunds to players following constant delays and brewing disenchantment. Its executive producer recently quit the project, the first-person shooter mode was delaye...
What more could you want out of games?
"You are a seagull. A beautiful, fragile seagull. You poop uncontrollably. Your purpose is to poop on things."
Fantastic! I'm always clamoring for more games where you get to really feel what it's like to be an animal, and th...
Created by Bad Robot, of all companies
Ready for another off-the-wall Team Fortress 2 update? After the addition of bumper cars from last Halloween, it seems anything is possible with this game. Now the multiplayer shooter is getting another shot in the arm with a...
Take it slow and steady
Superhot has been the talk of the town ever since it was first shown off to the world. A first person shooter where the action slows to a near stop unless you're currently moving, the game's visual style and odd momentum are ...
Check out some gameplay
Call of Duty: Black Ops III runs the risk of falling into the trappings of some of the previous bad games in the series, but as always, I have faith in Treyarch, the best developer in the franchise's history. Even if the...
Dev responds to #BringHalo5SplitScreenBack
Halo 5: Guardians' franchise development director has hit back against criticism that the newest instalment of the shooter will not feature split-screen co-op play.
They done switched wallets
We already knew how aggressive Sony has been with their heist of Call of Duty from Microsoft's clutches, with the new DLC timed exclusivity deal and an enhanced presence in the eSports arena, but Sony is going the extra ...
Hasn't been sold for months
If you play Destiny, you know the Gjallarhorn. It's a rocket launcher that fires a very powerful shot, and then extremely powerful (tracking) cluster bombs after it hits, doing solar damage the entire time. You know it b...
Published by Payday developer
If you didn't catch last year's John Wick, it's a pretty great flick, and a rare well-choreographed one (as far as American productions go). Its lead character has already crossed over into Starbreeze's Payday 2 (above); the ...
Demo skill tree detailed, too
If you've missed dual-wielding in Killing Floor 2, I've got good news for you. When the Incinerate N' Detonate content update comes out, you'll be able to buy dual 9mm pistols just like in the first game. Instead of just...
There'll be an open beta too!
Battleborn will release worldwide on February 9, 2016.
The news was confirmed by 2K in this awesome new (and CAPSLOCK-HEAVY) trailer, which also announced four new player characters.
The roster will include Ambra (a pri...
Also, it's a stupid game
I noticed this watching Homefront: The Revolution's trailer live at gamescom: there are a ton of convenient, incredibly sturdy corrugated metal ramps, bridges, and walkways in occupied United States. It seems like 40% of the...
Today at gamescom we got our first trailer for Fighter Squadron, a twenty person dogfight mode for Star Wars Battlefront.
You can pilot a bunch of different ships, including the Millenium Falcon, and there will be twenty AI fighters flying in the skies alongside the twenty human players.
Yep, this looks pretty cool. I'm glad we finally have this confirmed for the game.
But not necessarily better
Sometimes when you see a game at a preview event, you don't even want to write about it. You just know that what was shown wasn't a good representation of the final game. Malicious intent isn't always to blame, either; there ...
Did John Malkovich just call me a bitch?
So here we are with the Reckoning DLC pack, the last add-on for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after Havoc, Ascendance, and Supremacy. All in all, it's been a great ride, and slowly but surely, each map pack has improved upon the last.
It's great then that Advanced Warfare is going out with a bang with its best DLC yet.
"That's...that's where we are!!!"
