The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

11-19-2014

Well I'm doomed. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth expansion, Afterbirth, is going to include a whopping eight new transformations to discover, experiment with, and obsess over. I'm already addicted to transforming into Guppy the...


 

Game of Thrones

11-11-2014

Telltale's outlined the plot for the SIX episodes of its take on Game of Thrones, and wow, it sounds like the best lumberjack simulator in years. There are a whole bunch of trees (motherf*cking IRONTREES), and you have to dec...


 

Mushroom 11

11-10-2014

We haven’t gotten a look at Untame’s Mushroom 11 since we gave it a Best of PAX East award in 2014. It captured our hearts at the Boston show, with its approach to kinetic energy proving absolutely entrancing...

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

11-07-2014

When Hearthstone made its way to the iPad, I may or may not have played it for two weeks straight. My wife and I would sit down by the fire (or hearth, if you will) with our iPad and laptop in-hand and play for hours whi...


 

Convoy

11-07-2014

Back when consumers were more willing to put money toward projects on Kickstarter, FTL: Faster Than Light was one of the first big indie videogame success stories on the crowdfunding platform. It set a modest goal of $10,000...


 

Snot

11-06-2014

I'll admit: I very nearly deleted the email about Snot without a second thought. How could a game named after nasal mucus be worth even a few seconds of my time? Still, I did my due diligence and played the video attached, a...

The Sims 4

11-04-2014

The "Get To Work" expansion pack to The Sims 4 was released earlier today on Origin for $39.99. The first of what is expected to be many (and we're talking many), the expansion allows you to further enrich your in-game person...


 

When You're Gone

11-04-2014

In life, everybody deals with love, loss, and regret. When You're Gone's premise is built on the relatability of its story: A middle-aged man reflects on his life and comes to terms with "the one who got away." Protagonist S...


 

Noct

11-01-2014

The derelict building was a sanctuary, a place to gather supplies and take shelter from the horrors of the outside world. I moved from one chamber to the next, anxiously investigating the structure, sighing in relief upon cle...


 

Team Fortress 2

10-29-2014

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who...


 

Concrete Jungle

10-29-2014

As diverse and varied as games have become (particularly the independent scene), it can be easy to fall into a routine of only trying out titles with established gameplay. Part of what caught my eye about Concrete Jungle is ...


 

Laser Fury

10-28-2014

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...


 

Particulars

10-28-2014

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...


 

Transmission

10-28-2014

At first, Transmission looks like a pretty standard Eulerian path-based puzzle game. That is not a bad thing; I was pretty hooked on Lyne for a while. But as Transmission progresses, it follows the history of electronic commu...

Dreamfall Chapters: Book One

10-24-2014

It wasn't surprising to hear that the long-awaited Dreamfall Chapters would be split into separate episodes -- it's in the name, really. Episodic adventure games are well established now, so in my mind, separating a new Dream...


 

Rain World

10-24-2014

What's that? You didn't get enough Rain World gifs this week? What's that? Timmy is trapped in a well, rehabbing from that awkward back spasm in mop up? What's that? Old Man Tim is going to be lights out tonight in his s...


 

Metrocide

10-21-2014

Sydney-based independent studio Flat Earth Games has released its top-down cyberpunk-noir contract killing simulator Metrocide via Steam Early Access at the reduced price of $6.99. The final version of the game, which should ...

A City Sleeps

10-21-2014

[Disclosure: Nick Chester, who is currently employed at Harmonix, previously worked at Destructoid. As always, no relationships, personal or professional, were factored into the review.] It's a weird time to be Harmonix. It i...


 

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

10-20-2014

We've talked before which games use Steam Early Access best. Titles like Prison Architect and Sunless Sea are two that come to mind for me; these are games that have a perfectly playable and enjoyable core game that has been ...


 

Fist of Jesus

10-18-2014

In what looks like a mash-up of Monty Python's Life of Brian with the low-budget special effects and gore seen in films like the Toxic Avenger, Spain-based Mutant Games brings us the Fist of Jesus -- an arcade-styl...


 

Sigils of Elohim

10-18-2014

Croteam, the independent development studio behind the Serious Sam games and debonair indie publisher Devolver Digital have recently released a free mini-game prelude to their upcoming philosophical first-person puzzle gam...


 

Deadcore

10-15-2014

Deadcore is a futuristic first-person shooter/platforming hybrid that got its start in a 7DFPS game jam in 2012 by five friends who met while studying videogame design in Angoulême, France. Extended work on the prototy...


 

Ethereal

10-14-2014

When developer Thomas Finch first showed bits of Ethereal, I almost wanted to share it simply because of how pretty it looked (especially in motion), but at the time, there was not a lot of other information to go on. It is ...


 

Hyper Light Drifter

10-10-2014

Hyper Light Drifter looks pretty rad, and part of that is due to the cool looking 2D style. Recently developer Alex Preston responded to a question regarding a 1080p resolution for the game, and had this to say, "Our game is ...

ZiGGURAT

10-09-2014

A couple months ago, Rob wrote about Ziggurat making it on Steam Early Access, and it looks like this one will not be wasting away there for long before its full release, which developer Milkstone Studios says is "very close...
