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...
And a shark
Activision's going through that awkward time of year where it's gearing up to make a big splash at E3 with it's new Call of Duty game, but it's not quite done promoting its old Call of Duty game. That's how we get trail...
Respawn bringing no games to E3
A few months back, we learned that Titanfall 2 exists thanks to a throwaway line said during an interview someone working at Respawn Entertainment. Since this news, many people have been predicting a reveal for the game at E3...
It's not quite Brink, but it could be
I’ve mentioned this on Destructoid before, but I’ll be damned if I’m missing the chance to mention it again: Brink was a great game, people were wrong about it being bad.
I bring that up, because Brink devel...
Orange you glad you're still playing?
While dedicated players still roam the fringes of the Borderlands, Gearbox has been playing the part of mad scientist. Or, at least normal scientist. The developer's been toying with the way that legendary drops function in t...
There's a pdf and everything
DICE rolled out its spring update for Battlefield 4 today and it's substantial enough to warrant a pdf with highlights. The short of it is five new guns, the return of Battlefield 3's Gun Master mode, and a revamp of the dama...
Halo 3: ODST goes 1080p60
Free if you played before Dec. 19, 2014
[Update: The release date listing for the ODST campaign was a placeholder, according to the official Halo Twitter account. "We continue final testing and will make an official announcement once our release date is determined...
Our first look at Criminal Activity
EA and Visceral would want you to watch this new Battlefield Hardline trailer and take away the broader details of the upcoming Criminal Activity DLC. But, that's near impossible when there are guys with guns weari...
Den of puppies
I am convinced that somewhere, all of the new assets for the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion were lost, forcing Bungie to restart the entire process all over again.
Why else would almost the entire $20 premium DLC be a reskin?
Virtual reality zombie shooter
I sometimes feel like I'm less on board with VR than most. It's a fun novelty to show a family member for 20 minutes, not something I'd like to be cocooned in for hours . Maybe that's why there's expectation of it doing gang...
It's high noon somewhere in the world.
Say "Howdy partner" to McCree, the previously announced cowboy for Blizzard's Overwatch, in this hot off the presses gameplay preview. McCree may only use a six shooter, but it certainly doesn't hold him back judging by the ...
Den of puppies
Destiny was one of the weirdest releases in recent memory. It was so unbelievably ambitious, but when it dropped, it was basically a fraction of what Activision advertised. As time went on many tweaks were made to the ga...
So this is why it's taken so long
Ahead of its full reveal next month, Bethesda let out a couple seconds of footage for the new Doom. It looks cool to the extent that a snippet like this can look cool. Also, crucially, the footage is evocative of the series. ...
PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya
I went to bed at like 7PM last night without cleaning up after dinner because I am always tired. This morning, while trying to work, I had to clean up because my cat (he's so cute, yes he is, yes he is) kept jumping on the l...
