A Serious Sam voice pack for The Talos Principle is weird and awesome

The Talos Principle is a puzzler that requires deep and philosophical thought. Serious Sam is, well, it's pretty much the exact opposite. That's why it's so excellent that the latter will be doing voicework for the ...

Sunset Overdrive gets a permanent price drop, trades freaks for robots

There's a lot of activity in Sunset City despite the fact that the town is a shell of what it once was. Those over-caffeinated freaks flood the streets, and there's one guy bouncing about like he's the one with 15 too many R...

You'd think Driveclub would want to stay away from the word 'buggy'

Driveclub will most likely be remembered for its promised, yet non-existent free PlayStation Plus version. The primary reason this never came to fruition is because Evolution Studios had to spend a significant amount of...

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin's enhancements are minor, but I ended up beating it again photo
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin's enhancements are minor, but I ended up beating it again
by Chris Carter

Love 'em or hate 'em, this is the generation of remakes. It seems as if remasters of the previous generation pop up more frequently than actual new games, but if said remasters actually end up funding new games rather than the coffers of executives, that can be a good thing.

The newest remake comes by way of From Software in the form of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for a variety of different platforms. Unsurprisingly, it holds up as the core experience is fantastic, but it's really hard to suggest buying Scholar unless you haven't played the original in any shape or form.

Club Nintendo posts Platinum and Gold rewards photo
Club Nintendo posts Platinum and Gold rewards
by Chris Carter

Club Nintendo is coming to a close, and the ability to register any Coins ended yesterday, but there's one last swan song for the service -- the Platinum and Gold rewards. Today, Nintendo posted said rewards on their site, and they're all-digital yet again.

Platinum members can net Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario Golf: World Tour, Mario Kart 7, Mario Party: Island Tour, New Super Mario Bros.2, Yoshi's New Island, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, NES Remix 2, Punch-Out!!, Pushmo World, and Ultimate NES Remix.

Gold members (as well as Platinum if you want to dip below your reward grade) have a more retro-flavored selection, with Crashmo, Freakyforms, Pushmo, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages or Seasons, The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Advance Wars, The Legend of Zelda, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, The Lost Levels, Super Mario Kart, WarioWare, Inc, or Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3.

Of course the site is getting hit pretty hard, but you'll have some time to redeem them. Confused as to what to get? I linked all of our reviews and pertinent coverage for the non-retro games above. For the Platinum level I can suggest New Leaf, New Super Mario Bros 2, (especially if you have a spouse or friend who also wants to pick it up for multiplayer or the generally sweet DLC), and Tropical Freeze.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth might make its way to the New 3DS, Wii U, and Xbox One

[Update: An official posting from Edmund McMillen mentions extra changes for the Nintendo version that range from convincingly real to "probably fake." Maybe we'll get more in the totally real Nintendo Direct later today, at ...

PlayStation Home is dead

PlayStation Home, a virtual world where PlayStation gamers could meet, socialize and not do much else, passed away today in the early hours of the morning. There was no fanfare, no special goodbye, just a gentle passing on. S...

Fake VR boob goggles showed me that 'two party politics' are no good for gaming

Last week, Steven Hansen did a news story about some fake boob-infused videogame consoles that Marvelous made up to promote the next Senran Kagura game. I did a video about those videos for our YouTube channel, and it w...

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64

Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook]

This isn't 'goodbye,' it's 'smell ya later'

Hey folks, I'll keep this brief. I'm sorry to say, effective immediately, my role as video handeyman here at Destructoid is coming to an end. It may not come as a huge surprise, as I've kind of faded into the background this...
