Lots of games, lots of lame jokes
Oct 12
// Jed Whitaker
[Update: Donezo] It's 10pm ET on a Monday, what better time to live stream video games for the best website in the world? Yours truly will be streaming a multitude of games for various consoles from Blood Bowl 2, SOMA, and Th...

There is a friendly carrion crow in Bloodborne

And other assorted tidbits
Oct 12
// Jordan Devore
YouTuber VaatiVidya is back with another Bloodborne lore video. This time, he examines a slew of smaller discoveries that didn't make it into his prior videos. A few of them surprised me. Pebbles being eyes, for one, because ...

There's a devious Mario Maker war going on between two well-known games journalists

And it's all for charity
Oct 12
// Brett Makedonski
We've seen Mario Maker bring out the insidious in people. Plenty of folks are creating levels that are downright devilish. However, few of them have grabbed the spotlight quite like what's happening between two well-kno...

Fired Dead Island 2 devs leave Yager, start indie studio

Plus, hints at super secret project
Oct 12
// Steven Hansen
Three Yager (Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2) developers have left the company to go indie as inbetweengames. This is a few months after publisher Deep Silver dropped Yager as the developer on Dead Island 2, just a few mon...

This fake crossover of The Sims and Pokemon actually looks fun

Can it be real?
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
The Sims gets a lot of shit. Sure, it has DLC and expansions coming out of the rafters, but historically, the core games have been pretty decent -- outside of the latest iteration that stripped out a ton of features of ...

The DeLorean is coming to Rocket League

On October 21, 2015, of course
Oct 12
// Patrick Hancock
On October 21, 2015, the date Marty McFly went to in Back to the Future Part II, Rocket League will be getting some movie-flavored DLC. The DeLorean and a "Burnt Rubber" rocket trail will be added into the game for a me...

$92 million space game gets Luke Skywalker, more Hollywood actors

Story mode cast, latest gameplay
Oct 12
// Steven Hansen
Star Citizen, the massively crowd-funded, ambitious space game, has seen a rough patch this year of missed release windows and a more recent lawsuit threats against a media outlet, but there's also a video game in developmen...

Nintendo held a pretty cool launch event for Chibi Robo at the World Store

Maybe there's hope for the little guy
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
The Chibi-Robo franchise is in dire straits. Nintendo has noted recently that Zip Lash is his last shot, and the reviews so far haven't been kind. On the bright side, this launch event held at the Nintendo World Store actual...

Windjammers 2

You can play Windjammers 2 right now (kinda)

The closest we'll get to a sequel
Oct 12
// Myles Cox
Windjammers on the Neo Geo has to be probably one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time. Unfortunately if you'd like to actually play it today it's going to cost you hundreds of dollars as well as a plethora of ...

Overlord puts on a clinic in being evil

Despicable You
Oct 12
// Brett Makedonski
The Overlord series again makes a trip to Hell in little more than a week. Kind of sudden, eh? Extended stays in the Underworld aren't things that get rigorously planned out and marked on calendars for months to come. O...

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The history of Lara Croft

In video form
Oct 09
// Zack Furniss
Rise of the Tomb Raider will be ready for your nasty hands in a month. Brett had some time with it at gamescom, and came away feeling that it was "just as cinematic, dramatic, and action-filled as we'd expect," which, as...

Star Wars Battlefront looks so good as a 16-bit game

Thank the Force
Oct 09
// Brett Makedonski
Enjoying that Battlefront beta? It seems like plenty of people are thrilled to play in a Star Wars universe that looks as good as this one does. Bear with me here, but Battlefront has a pleasant charm to it if...

When a Mario level is named 'P is for Pain,' you're in trouble

F is for...
Oct 09
// Jordan Devore
We've got another diabolical Super Mario Maker level for you to marvel at and probably not play. I like this one not only for its name, "P is for Pain," but for its use of limited tools. It's designed almost entirely around P Switches and spikes. The challenge isn't so much figuring out what you're supposed to do as it is just staying calm and pulling off intricate jumps, one after another.

Now *that's* how you defuse a bomb

Oct 09
// Jordan Devore
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a game about defusing bombs. And teamwork. One person is presented with a randomized bomb that no one else can see or touch. The other players are blind, but they have access to the game's ...

That's how Luke Skywalker dies, huh?

Good clips from the Battlefront beta
Oct 09
// Brett Makedonski
I always imagined he'd go out with a bang. You know, something real epic. He's done so much Big Stuff in his life, it feels like he deserves to go out like a hero. Well, all that hopping is pretty heroic, I guess. Springy little bastard.

Uncharted's Brutal difficulty is no joke

It's in The Nathan Drake Collection
Oct 09
// Jordan Devore
I've never cared much for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but I can relate to this video of someone banging their head against the game's hardest difficulty mode. I'm having Call of Duty flashbacks. Brutal is a new option found in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and it's an even greater challenge than the fresh hell that was Crushing difficulty. Take a look for yourself:

Final Fantasy VII remix album Materia is bigger than the original soundtrack

Featuring Dale North and other people
Oct 09
// Darren Nakamura
Check out that preview below. Longtime Destructoid fans might find it familiar for a couple reasons. For one, Final Fantasy VII's main theme is one of the most recognizable pieces from the old role-playing game. It played in ...

Indie dev's angry rant demonstrates the stress after being Kickstarted

Or is it all satire?
Oct 08
// Jed Whitaker
Having never heard of Elysian Shadows -- a 2D RPG that was Kickstarted for PC, mobile, Ouya, and even Dreamcast -- I stumbled across the above video of one of the developers, Falco Girgis, seemingly going off. Apparentl...

Just Cause 3 looks like such dumb fun

Sometimes, that's all you need
Oct 08

I'm looking forward to closing out the year with a month of Just Cause 3. I can see it now: staying inside, all warm and slightly drunk, playing a game about a man with a rocket launcher strapped to his back who glides around...

Are you patriotic enough for this Broforce ballad?

Urge to salute... rising!
Oct 08
// Jordan Devore
Broforce is almost done with Steam Early Access. The run-and-gun game starring action-movie lookalikes will see a full release for Windows, Mac, and Linux on October 15, 2015. Next up? Hell. Literally! In upcoming levels, the bros will wage war against Satan. Sounds about right. Until then, get ready to shed a few tears while watching this loving tribute to America.

Tales from the Borderlands finale releases on October 20

Here's a teaser for it
Oct 08

You might have heard how the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands is now available for free. If you haven't, well, Telltale really wants to drive that fact home. That's how they get you. The first hit is free. You want...

The branching paths of Torment: Tides of Numenera

A short look at Crisis encounters
Oct 07
// Jordan Devore
It seems like so long ago that inXile brought Torment: Tides of Numenera to Kickstarter. But really, it's only been a couple of years. Much has changed for video game crowdfunding. Much hasn't. Have I been keeping tabs on the...

The Goosebumps game sure is gonna make you read a lot

R.L. Fine, I won't R.L. Whine
Oct 07
// Brett Makedonski
Reading? In my video games? I guess that's par for the course in a click-and-point title. And, if you're really twisting my arm, it's probably a big part of reading books, too. At least Goosebumps is thematically c...

Reshape planets with a friend in Astroneer

I'm so into this
Oct 07
// Jordan Devore
It's morning still. I feel way too groggy to let out an audible "whoa!" while watching a trailer for a video game, but Astroneer managed to elicit one anyway. Two, actually. It was the player-controlled terrain deformation th...

Downwell is going to take over my life

One run at a time
Oct 07
// Jordan Devore
I was on board with Downwell (PC, iOS, Android) as soon as I saw this gif. It's a game about descending a narrow well as a little guy with guns on his boots. Gun boots! Shooting slows your descent and, crucially, destroys ene...

Here's a pretty good recap of Deus Ex's story so far

Oct 07

For the 15th anniversary of Deus Ex, Eidos Montreal has whipped up a special "story so far" featurette. It provides a brief synopsis of the overarching theme of the series, and should give you a good idea of what to expe...

Haha, the commentary in this Umbrella Corps video

Resident Evil spin-off
Oct 07
// Jordan Devore
Steven played a little Umbrella Corps at Tokyo Game Show and he was right -- the fast crawl does look ridiculous, and zombies aren't much of a threat in this competitive third-person shooter. With today's footage, Capcom tried its hand at eSports-style commentary. It does not go well.

I don't forget about major releases often, but I totally forgot Genei Ibun Roku X FE (yep, that's the official title) is a thing. Originally known as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, which was thought to be a tradi...

Dust: An Elysian Tail

Dust: An Elysian Tail, a fantastic metroidvania, is coming to iOS

'Very soon'
Oct 07
// Chris Carter
Dust: An Elysian Tail, released originally on XBLA in 2012, is one of my favorite metroidvanias in recent memory. The fact that it was developed by one guy, basically, is still insane to me, given how deep the game is mechani...

Super Butoden 2, an SNES game

Some of my fondest gaming memories involve late-night fighting sessions with Dragon Ball Z games. The Butoden series was a classic, but I also played plenty of Dragon Ball Z: Legends on the original PlayStation, wh...
