Splash Damage's team-based shooter Dirty Bomb hits Steam

Huh. It feels like literal years have passed since I last paid much attention to Dirty Bomb, the free-to-play, class-oriented, multiplayer first-person shooter from Brink developer Splash Damage. It's still around. Stranger yet, it's only n...

Dirty Bomb is hitting open beta on June 2

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 developer Splash Dam...

Batman: Arkham Origins
I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins. Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was, but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series. Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.   read

Batman: Arkham Origins
Batman: Arkham Origins had to endure a lot of cynicism from the peanut gallery as it rushed headlong from sudden announcement to pre-Christmas release. It's hardly surprising, too -- after the Arkham series earned high c...   read

Extraction hands-on
Many of my staff members wander off in the other direction after hearing things like "free-to-play first-person shooter." I get it. But I wanted to see Extraction's debut at PAX this past weekend because Splash Damage were be...   read

Arkham Origins on Wii U lacks multiplayer, naturally

Wii U is looking pretty down in the dumps. Maybe some quality software in the near future will cheer it right back up. Perhaps a little Batman: Arkham Origins -- I hear it's got multiplayer now. Well, it does on every platform that's not Wi...
