Gigantic Army

02-12-2014

Doujin shooter Gigantic Army is out now on Steam for a measly $5.99. You should check out our review and buy it maybe. That is, if you like fun things. You do like fun things, don't you? I mean, seriously, what els...

The Castle Doctrine

02-08-2014

My life's earnings are stashed away in my vault. Well, half of it. As an added security measure, I've given my wife half to hold on to and protect with her life. I've built my house in such a way that I feel pretty confiden...

Consortium

02-06-2014

Right click. Left click. Right click. Left click. The old one-two. Jab and then...jab again. Or are they hooks? I can't tell in first-person. Regardless, I was wandering around the spaceship, punching aimlessly, until I heard...

Jazzpunk

02-06-2014

Describing Jazzpunk is pretty damn hard. It's billed as a "comedy adventure game," but it's so much more (and sometimes less) than that. It's packed full of references, oddball minigames, and voicework that will make you laugh more often than not. For those reasons alone, it's not going to be for everyone. Unless you really like the idea of squirting a can of Cheez Whiz on Jim Sterling.

Rekoil

02-04-2014

It's difficult to have a unique idea in a genre that's as over-saturated as 'first-person shooter' is. With Call of Duty, Halo, and Battlefield already out there year after year, making a multiplayer game enticing while offering something fresh and unseen is becoming harder and harder for developers to accomplish. The makers of Rekoil: Liberator are proof of that.

The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors

02-04-2014

While The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors may already be out, Telltale slapped together a trailer to brag about some of the nice things that some nice people said about it. There's nothing new here with regard to information about the continuation of the series, but for those that just want another chunk of The Wolf Among Us in their life, this should do for the time being.

The Sun at Night

02-04-2014

Laika was a female Soviet dog, and the first mutt in space and to orbit the Earth. Laika was never intended to return. She died during her orbit, and her remains burnt up as the Sputnik 2 re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere and disintegrated. Or did she…

Octodad: Dadliest Catch

01-30-2014

To distract myself from the incessant sports talk happening in Destructoid chat this laid-back afternoon, I've been staring at the wonderful 7" Octodad: Dadliest Catch record. What a cutie. Nice to see Young Horses stick with...

Double Fine has settled on April 28, 2015 as the release date for Broken Age Act 2 on PC and Broken Age (both acts) on PS4 and PS Vita. European console players have to wait a day. There's Cross-Buy on PlayStation, and saves ...

01-19-2014

I have no idea how to accurately describe Continue?9876543210 so I’ll just copy and paste this quote from the developer in here: “Continue? is for the type of person that appreciates odd, poetic word play, interpr...

Two Brothers

01-17-2014

Although some people have been playing Two Brothers for quite some time on PC, many gamers are still wondering when the planned Wii U port will arrive. According to the developer AckkStudios, it's still on the works, and...

Nidhogg

01-14-2014

If you've got a lot of controllers and a lot of friends, these past couple years have been tailor-made for you. Between games like Towerfall (great), Samurai Gunn (great), Super Smash Bros for Wii U (okay), Divekick (ba...

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition

01-10-2014

Baldur’s Gate II holds a pretty special place in my heart. It was easily my favorite RPG from my younger days, and to be honest not much has changed since. Classic Dungeons & Dragons gameplay combined...

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

01-02-2014

I played just about every major release under the sun in 2013 -- but naturally, some of the smaller titles escaped me. Interested in seeing what I may have missed, I shared my total "games played" list the other day, and was met with a pretty interesting inquiry from a reader, simply stating, "No Valdis Story?" I'm really glad they brought it to my attention.

World of Warplanes

12-21-2013

Free-to-play is still a bad word these days with a lot of gamers. But it doesn't have to be. Titles like Path of Exile have shown that providing a model where most of the content is free, but the cosmetic upgrades are pa...

Path of Exile

Kiwi game developer Grinding Gear has released the latest expansion to its popular action-RPG Path of Exile, titled Forsaken Masters. After updating your game to version 1.2.0 you will at times cross paths wit...

Teslagrad

12-18-2013

Teslagrad came, saw, and did modestly well in terms of a critical response, but it still hasn't hit the Wii U yet after its announcement last year. Thankfully we're getting some news, as developer Rain Games is going to ...

The Walking Dead: All That Remains

12-17-2013

Informal poll, who plays the series on Vita? It seems like such a late addition platform that, coupled with its small-ish install base, a lot of people who wanted to play The Walking Dead have by the time the Vita versions ke...

X Rebirth

12-12-2013

The X series is known for being a little rough out of the gate, so when X Rebirth came out with some major bugs, no one was really surprised. Egosoft has been releasing a lot of patches, but the game is still borderline unpla...

Samurai Gunn

12-11-2013

Samurai Gunn is great. It's a mainstay in my living room, especially with the backwards compatible PS1 taking a dive (no more convenient Bushido Blade). I also gave it a 2014 game of the year award even though...

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians

Genre blending is becoming more and more common as developers explore different gameplay styles. As with puzzle and role-playing, rhythm elements are often folded into otherwise unrelated games to various degrees. BeatBuddy: ...

Forced

12-04-2013

At first glance, FORCED looks like a typical action role-playing game, cut from the same cloth as Diablo III or Path of Exile. It's a bit like that, but it also has elements of a puzzler and a dual-stick shooter. But at the e...

Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage

12-02-2013

Through the course of eight stages, Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage tells the story of two swordsmen, Soul and Shang. Recent recruits of an assassin order known as "Cabal," they seek answers to the mystery of their disappeared mentor, Jade, lost on a mission against a domineering power in the Martial Realm. At least, I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
