Kung Lao shows no mercy in his first Mortal Kombat X screenshot

I'm not sure what Scorpion plans on doing here. He's in what we'd call a "no win situation." Kung Lao's fist is poised to usher Scorpion into a world of pain, and he's opted to imaginary limbo instead of fighting back. Maybe ...

Sore throat pain strikes in our Game of Thrones finale! photo
Sore throat pain strikes in our Game of Thrones finale!
by Mike Cosimano

Through heartache, assumed betrayal, and borderline acceptable fight scenes, Mike and Will have made it to the end of Game of Thrones' first episode. And boy howdy, is it a doozy!

People actually die in this one!

Keep your eyes glued to Destructoid, because I've got a feeling Game of Thrones is only just getting started. And we're going to stick with it up to the very end.

Harmonix surprises everyone with an imminent trio of Rock Band DLC songs

Remember the days of yesteryear when a bevy of plastic instruments was a de facto part of your interior design? Well, if you so wish, that look could make a comeback, as Harmonix is adding to the Rock Band library f...

Publishers wanted to change Life is Strange leads into men

In the first developer diary for the upcoming Life is Strange, Dontnod (Remember Me) creative director Jean-Maxime Moris explained how difficult it was shopping the game to publishers, most of whom urged the company to turns...

The next generation of Xbox Live avatars may be upon us

Miis were introduced in 2006, but Microsoft cleverly got on the bandwagon in 2008 with Xbox Live avatars. Although they weren't as cute, they were far more customizable -- and of course more profitable as the publisher sold t...

PDP's Mortal Kombat X pad looks like a SEGA Genesis controller

I've always wanted a fight stick more for arcade nostalgia than any legitimate fighting game purposes. This gamepad from PDP, specifically designed for Mortal Kombat X, elicits some nostalgia as well, as it's basically an as...

Mike and Will spar with the stars in Game of Thrones

Will and I continue our journey through Westeros, but not before stopping by the throne room to have a little spat with Ma-Ma from Dredd 3D. Did you guys ever notice that 'Dredd' has three 'D's in it? That makes the title ex...

Bungie's Holiday gift for Destiny players was...a random legendary weapon

Before the end of 2014, Bungie tweeted out that players would obtain a "small, but legendary" gift for their Destiny accounts. Most people presumed that it would be a Santa hat consumable of some sort, like the Halloween...

Xbox dethrones PlayStation as porn console king, Wii grows 69.9% (nice)  photo
Xbox dethrones PlayStation as porn console king, Wii grows 69.9% (nice)
by Steven Hansen

Pornhub, which I am told by other people familiar with the webpage is a site for viewing adult, pornographic films, has released its statistical year in review. It's not as detailed on the videogame console side of things like last year's data, which we covered here deeply, but the infographics are still interesting, particularly as porn terminology is hilarious in the abstract.

Teen, lesbian, and milf all retained top search billing, for example, but "step mom" pole vaulted into the top 5 worldwide search terms (number 2 in the US) and "step sister" into the top 15 worldwide (the biggest ranking change, going up 53 spots in 2014), top 10 in the US.

Back to the videogame side, there's been a shift. The 2013 numbers attributed 55% of console porn viewing to PS3 users (compared to 39% on Xbox). 2014's numbers have Xbox at 45.7%, PlayStation at 40%. The Wii (8.2%), Vita (5%) and 3DS (1.1%) finish things off.

That marks a 69.9% increase in the Wii's market share, which is funny 'cause that's a sex number. Because these numbers are a percentage of a shared whole, it doesn't mean fewer PlayStation users are using their consoles for porn (plus, this is just data from one porn streaming service, of which I am told by people familiar with them there are many), but it is likely that a lot more Xbox users are using the service, which would account for their turgid, swollen numbers.

We continue to fail at diplomacy in Game of Thrones

There's nothing more difficult than diplomacy, as we found out in today's Game of Thrones installment. When a fat jerk wanders into your hall, demanding blood and some kind of weird-ass tree, you've got no other choice but t...

Mike and Will deliver some medieval haircuts in Game of Thrones

Old Man Kung Lao shuffles his weary bones to the next Mortal Kombat tournament

Everyone's favorite Odd Job-inspired warrior will be returning to the bloody fray in Mortal Kombat X. Kung Lao's return was confirmed in the most recent issue of GamesMaster Magazine. And, as always, cutting-edge fashion will be very important to him. (I'll show myself out.)

Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update) photo
Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update)
by Mike Cosimano

[Update: Far Cry 4 has been reinstated on the Xbox One games store, restoring permissions for several users. For those who are still experiencing difficulties, Ubisoft officially recommends a hard reboot of the Xbox One console, as relayed by community manager Ubi_Jax. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment.]

Far Cry 4 has been removed from the Xbox One games store, leaving some players unable to access the game despite having already purchased and downloaded the title. Ubisoft is actively investigating the issue, but suggests contacting Xbox Support in the meantime.

The problem was first reported nine hours ago on reddit by user AegeusRex, who was stymied by their inability to launch a digital copy of Far Cry 4 Gold Edition. Several other users lodged a similar complaint, and the malaise spread to Ubisoft's support forum soon after.

Ubisoft believes the problem stems from Far Cry 4 being unavailable for purchase through the Xbox One's digital store. The game appears in searches, but clicking on the standard version results in a 'Page Not Found' error. Curiously, the Gold Edition seems to be available for purchase.

We'll keep an eye on this story, but for now, it seems like your best bet is to wait for Microsoft to restore the game. Maybe buy a physical version next time?

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes made in Far Cry 4 is a work of art

We already knew that Far Cry 4's level editor was an open invitation for masterpieces to be made. That much was evident after this goat butt stabbing video surfaced. But, some people are making more serious playgrounds. One ...
