New releases: Fight in the snow in Company of Heroes 2

5:30 PM on 06.24.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Ride to Hell, Deadpool, Dark, and more

This week sees the return of Relic's superb World War 2 strategy series, Company of Heroes, with the bloody conflict in the Eastern Front being presented in a brand new engine. Though it adds little more than extreme weather and a new, explosive campaign to the tried and tested formula, it's really rather splendid.

On top of this, the Biker action game, Ride to Hell: Retribution finally drops, after a bit of a delay; the merc with the mouth, Deadpool, gets his very own game; Dark leaps out of the shadows with a smattering of stealth and vampire action; and that really rather awful looking Spartacus Legends game is a thing.

Anything tempting you this week?

The issue with Mike's article isn't that he doesn't like SMB. His tone makes it feel like his opinion is presented as fact, and the article goes way off track from the title.

The last bit made me laugh for some reason. [img][/img]

My silly joke comment on Mike's article looks really mean next to all the bitter ones. Why are people so accepting of my unpopular opinions, but not his?

I'm still watching this over and over. Dude is tremendously talented, to say the least. Just wait until the solo and breakdown. [youtube][/youtube]

Nice. Destructoid articles no longer scroll on my tablet or phone. Who should I email about this?

Anybody like Rhythm games? I found a really cool one on, I likes it, I likes it a lot! Although you gotta use Firefox due to lag caused by chrome unfortunately.

Finding name brand candy in Chibi-Robo Zip Lash brings an unexpected joy that reminds me of finding Duracell batteries and other real products in the first Pikmin.

Super Meat Boy must be one of the most difficult platinum trophies to exist for Playstation. Beat every dark world section without dying? Ha, okay.

Attention Craigslist users: No one wants your ps2 sports games no matter how much you repost them/drop the price, unless it's NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta or SSX3. The rest are better used as drink coasters.

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

I killed Darth Vader by crashing a spaceship into him 10/10

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

I made this. Want one? [IMG]HTTPS://[/IMG]

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.
