Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation
by Chris Carter

Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their prior milquetoast map packs, and somehow they've even managed to top Michael Meyer's cameo with the goddamn Predator.

Not all of the maps are created equal, but another strong Extinction mission and the Predator gimmick help elevate the package considerably.

Sound might be the key to survival in Alien: Isolation

Creating atmospheric tension isn't exactly easy. If it were, every survival horror game would be a hit. There are several elements that have to be closely tended to, one of the most important ones being sound. In making ...

Titanfall framerate range confirmed on Xbox 360

One of my problems with the campaign leading up to Titanfall was the lack of any real information on the game. It took months to find out any details, and even then we only learned about the vast majority of its fea...

Erik Estrada calls you a 'clownshow disaster' in this Trials Fusion ad

No matter what life path Erik Estrada chooses to walk, they all lead back to one place -- the ol' beat. From CHiPS to his semi-job as a reserve police officer, upholding the law is in Officer Estrada's blood. That's why...

This is what it's like to play as the Predator in the new Call of Duty DLC photo
This is what it's like to play as the Predator in the new Call of Duty DLC
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is now out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $14.99. You get four new multiplayer maps, a new gun, a new chapter in the Extinction co-op mode, and most important of all, you can play as the goddamn Predator.

Like the Michael Myers transformation, you can become the Predator from the field orders stuff and you truly embody the Predator here. You get its thermal vision, invisibility, the claw, and even the shoulder mounted gun too. And when you're killed you can blow yourself up, which kills EVERYBODY! You even do the evil laugh!

I'm starting to regret that I gave up on Ghosts' multiplayer shortly after launch now.

Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder photo
Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder
by Alessandro Fillari

Last year, the news of Ubisoft making an old-school throwback to the JRPG genre took a number of people by surprise. When Destructoid got the chance to check it out, there was a healthy amount of curiosity around it. Not too many people knew what to make of it, especially considering it was coming from the team that made Far Cry 3, which is a title that seems very far apart from it.

But after spending some time with Child of Light, about three hours to be exact, there might be more in common with these two titles than you think. I got the chance to talk with lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem, and saw what passion and a small team working on a unique throwback to JRPG titles managed to come up with.

Saints Row IV thinks highly of itself, releasing Game of the Century Edition

Ever since the third installment in the series, Saints Row has been a franchise that hasn't been afraid to toot its own horn. Not necessarily without cause, though -- after all, Saints Row IV was pretty darn good. B...
