And other ball-related puns
We might just be in a new renaissance of "roll the ball to the goal" games right now. Super Impossible Road showed us the benefits of breaking the rules. Polyball took it to a trippy otherworld. Now we have word about Roll Pl...
Kanye and Kim's second child
Hard West did enough to impress Kickstarter backers last year, with its bloody Old West theme and its tactical combat. Good news for fans: it's looking like this one won't be languishing in development limbo like so many othe...
Is it too late?
Early Wii U owners should know all about ZombiU. Depending on who you ask, it was a decent to great zombie survival game and a much-needed one at that. Years later, Ubisoft is bringing it to other platforms -- PC, PlayStatio...
Also drops the 'the' from its name
We have had our eyes on The Iconoclasts for a while now. It started development in 2010, and we have covered whispers of updates sporadically since then, including a rad mecha-worm boss fight using rail transport last year. G...
More stages and tournament mode
Hah. A classic villain like Donkey Kong Country's King K. Rool would come to Super Smash Bros. as a costume for Mii Fighter, wouldn't he? Not like I wanted him on the roster or anything.
Nintendo is rolling out a bunch of new...
A few new screenshots to show off
Guacamelee! was rad and DrinkBox Studios' next project Severed has a lot of the same stuff going for it, despite existing in an entirely different genre. It has that same sharp cartoon art style and it doesn't shy away from s...
New screenshots of Doom (2016)
We're not at QuakeCon 2015, but folks who are can play the new Doom multiplayer. Early impressions have been mostly positive, though it sounds like hands-on opportunities are brief.
Oh well. At least we have this cool spooky scary skeleton wallpaper and some screenshots.
2K Games and Firaxis just released a couple screenshots for the new Mutons in the upcoming XCOM 2, and something jumps out right away. Is that a chainsaw bayonet?
Granted, it's not like anybody could "own" the idea of attachi...
That first image of Dragon Quest Builders (PS3, PS4, PS Vita) didn't do much for me.
"Huh? Dragon Quest through the lens of Minecraft? Uhh, okay." *closes tab*
These latest screenshots are more substantial. The "Camp" bar in ...
Another episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, another batch of screens I took while playing through for review. This batch seems especially small, for two reasons. For one, I was less diligent about taking scree...
I am a poet
I'm fighting the urge to do the lazy blogger "if X and Y had a baby" thing, but I don't know if I can help myself. Crashlands looks like what would happen if The Behemoth (BattleBlock Theater) were to develop Klei Entertainm...
Pop shove-it into your eyeholes
Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as ...
Papers, Please released a couple years ago, but it struck a chord with many who played it. One of the most discussed elements was the decision-making process between doing what is right and doing what is necessary. First-per...
Two new characters announced
Koei Tecmo has decided to dump a bunch of Heroic Legend of Arslan Warriors screens out into the wild for us to gander at, and man are they great. The character Gieve and Farangis have been added to the game, and a few de...
They're both in Toy Soldiers: War Chest
After showing He-Man and G.I. Joe in Toy Soldiers: War Chest, Ubisoft noted that it would announce two more licensed armies for Signal Studio's latest tower defense/action game.
We dreamed big, as you do. That was a mistake.
And maybe E. Honda
I woke up to murmurs of Alex, Urien, R. Mika, and Karin Kanzuki possibly returning for Street Fighter V but Capcom had other plans for its San Diego Comic-Con character reveal today.
Ken. It's Ken.
Whatever you do, don't stare directly into his hair.
Ken officially joins the Street Fighter 5 roster [Event Hubs]
Expansion releasing July 23 on Steam
Croteam is building on its philosophical first-person puzzle game The Talos Principle with an upcoming expansion, Road to Gehenna, which covers a different society and "some of the most advanced and challenging puzzles yet." ...
Snoopy and Woodstock cooperate
Those trailers for The Peanuts Movie are pretty dang cute. It's neat to see the computer models and animation done in the style of the old cartoons. The movie will show up in theaters on November 6.
In a move hearkening back...
There's free movement, at least
Ubisoft has another Rayman in the works for smartphones and tablets. It's pretty! Almost as pretty as Rayman Legends which, despite being phenomenal, not enough folks played.
This time, players will be able to move freely th...
Reminder: This thing is $40
Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at least to these less-than-stellar eyes, took some studying.
The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
Gust has turned heads with a new PlayStation (3, 4, and Vita) action RPG Yoru no Nai Kuni (something along the line of Land of No Night). It's much darker (but still pretty) than the Atelier games the company might be best k...
And if the environment were invisible
Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, who...
My dad could beat up your dad
True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...
Catch a screeeeeeeeeen!
Tales from the Borderlands: Catch a Ride is out today, and it continues the excellence the series has been known for thus far. As I normally do while playing through Telltale titles, I had my finger firmly planted on the F12 ...
New trailer may be uploaded soon?
I wouldn't blame you for avoiding these if you want to wait to experience them in the majesty that is the second Persona 5 trailer, from where these screens were ripped. Folks in Japan got their hands on Persona 4: Dancing All Night early along with the special bonus disc that contains a Persona 5 trailer, so be on the lookout for that soon.
Also, blue-haired guy a new character?
Xbox green, amiibo, nipples and more
[Maintenance note: Just a little weekend site upgrading madness, please let us know what you think of our new photo gallery system! Also, you can now surf Destructoid via SSL though some non-https elements like comments...
Pretty standard stuff
The Heavensward expansion launches for Final Fantasy XIV in a few hours, and Square Enix has sent over a copy of the Collector's Edition. For $130, it includes the expansion, a special box, a dragon mount figure, an...
This isn't set in space...
In a strong departure from the space battles of Elite: Dangerous, Frontier announced a theme park simulator tonight at the PC gaming show at E3. The Planet Coaster: Simulation Evolved trailer started with an empty grass lot,...
Later this year on everything but Wii U
After Best Buy and a leak spilled the beans, we now have official confirmation from Activision -- Platinum Games will develop Transformers: Devastation, an upcoming action project based on the Transformers universe. It ...
Play Faith's origin story
At EA's press conference today, Sara Jansson showed off a trailer for the upcoming Mirror's Edge Catalyst. Before getting it started, she dropped the release date: February 23, 2016. That's less than a year before we can (fi...
