All that DLC you'll miss out on
Warner Bros. has finally officially canceled Mortal Kombat X for PS3 and Xbox 360 after delays and months of silence.
"After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable concl...
From Straw Hat to Dressrosa
I haven't kept entirely up to date with One Piece, but I do read the summaries, and have caught most of the earlier arcs. It's a daunting task (the series has been running since 1997) in terms of the anime, and there's lots o...
Lasts until September 7
Starting this week and running until September 7, 2015, Final Fantasy XIV will run the "Rising" event, complete with rewards and a few "guest appearances." The items include two minions, and celebratory fireworks.
Use the toys, Luke
It's only been two years since the release of the first Disney Infinity, which managed to become a massive hit before venturing into Marvel territory in the second game. Now, Disney has tapped the Star Wars market, and i...
Tons of goodies with the PS3 version
Publisher NIS has started taking pre-orders for Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut - Classified Edition for PS3. It includes a hardcover art book, soundtrack, all the available DLC, and a custom set of Bicycle brand ...
Healix looks awesome
CGI-filled trailers often do a great job of building hype, but this gameplay-filled Dragon Quest Heroes video just does it for me. It shows a ton of characters doing their thing, provides a quick look at the English cas...
Japan-only at the moment though
Still miffed that there weren't enough characters in Guilty Gear Xrd? Well, the Revelator update is getting Johnny and Jack-O, but it looks like more might be in the pipeline. Arc System Works is opening up a vote in Septembe...
We want Rune
You know what they say about times. They are a-changin'. Someone put a bunch of young, hip-lookin' kids in old man Tony Hawk's video game. There's even a younger Tony Hawk, but his name is Riley.
Those of you who cut your te...
Free expansion coming soon
Plague of Shadows looks like the perfect excuse to get back into Shovel Knight.
It's a free expansion that remixes the game to tell an alternate story about the Plague Knight. Between his customizable bomb-based moveset and s...
Cheap PS4, PS3, and Vita games
The PlayStation Network is having a sudden sale with deals of up to 90% off (with PlayStation Plus) games. This "Retro" sale includes classic titles like Beyond: Two Souls (2013) for $8 and OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood (20...
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is a nice little adventure game, and it's about to get even nicer. Arc System Works has announced that it's bringing a major update over for every platform -- PS3, PS4, and Vita.
The update is cal...
And a whole lot more
Final Fantasy XIV is already a rather large game thanks to the Heavensward expansion, but it's about to get bigger come patch 3.1. It was announced that in addition to new story quests, a new beast tribe questline is coming, ...
One week to go
The first half of this launch trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a short, incomplete reminder of designer Hideo Kojima's legacy. It's sad, knowing what we know. Touching, even.
Then a giant-ass mech with a gun on its crotch transforms a fiery whip into a sword and slashes cars.
I do feel, some, for Electronic Arts and the people responsible for making Madden every year. This is only my 4th year (out of 27 releases) covering it and I fear I may have peaked with last year's review. But like a fr...
My "D" grade Japanese GCSE won't help much
Sony has confirmed that its Annual Toyko Games Show conference will take place on September 15.
The news was confirmed via a post on the Japanese PS Blog.
Sony declined to present at last month's gamescom conference, sta...
Reveal will be on Instagram later today!
Quick PSA for those that care: Bungie will be revealing some of Destiny: The Taken King's all-new Exotics on Instagram later today.
Actually, it's Xûr, everyone's favourite worm-faced weekend trader, who's making ...
A bit late
"Winning!" That's what some marketer with tiger blood in his veins thought when he saw this NBA 2K16 trailer. "This is bi-winning. It wins here, and it wins there. This, now this makes all other trailers look like ...
Other PS Plus titles revealed, too
Grow Home entered the PlayStation Plus Vote to Play contest and it climbed, climbed, climbed in the polls. It climbed higher than any others. It climbed so high that it has left the stratosphere of games that cost money...
Happy trails, Kojima
Despite the fact that most of the spinoff Metal Gear games are good in their own right, they just don't get me excited the same way the mainline console editions do. Every core Metal Gear entry has something new, and offers up some sort of revelatory storyline event that has fans talking for years on end.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is no exception.
A shade or ten prettier than the 3DS one
No offense to Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, which I'm sure Spike Chunsoft put a lot of hard work into, but this is more like it. This is the sort of Shingeki no Kyojin game I've been waiting for.
This time around ...
That's a lot of Chocobos
Final Fantasy XIV has amassed more than 5 million registered accounts across the globe since Square Enix released the popular MMO two years ago, the publisher announced this week.
That figure doesn't quite rival market leader...
Another PlayStation Network flash sale, another weird-ass header picture. Yep, I'm still on Parasyte.
I was way late to playing Telltale's The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us adventure series, and I'm sure some of you read...
We didn't see this coming
EA Sports' promotion of Madden has largely been the same for years now. Gameplay trailers, new features, interviews with developers -- we've been there and done that. This is different. This is...weird. And, kind of amazing....
You must like static bags and zip ties
Destiny might be heading to PC.
A job posting on Bungie's website requires new staff to "evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a...
Find out for yourself very soon
Funktronic Labs' Nova-111 was the highlight of my BitSummit in 2014. It blends turn-based movement with real-time elements to make an action puzzler of sorts. All of this is to rescue 111 scientists. Just trust us -- it...
Consoles can still pre-load though
Bad news if you were hoping to get Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain all pre-loaded up on your PC in time for the September 1 launch -- Konami has confirmed that there's no pre-load available on Steam.
"Unfortunately PC St...
You just gotta Bo-lieve!
WWE newcomer Kevin Owens has already had spats with John Cena, Cesaro, and Michael Cole, but he won't find any of them when he gets to the bottom of this ramp. That's because his entrance video for WWE 2K16 is in NXT wh...
Is episode five out yet?
Wow wow wow. This episode was so good, guys. I don't think I've ever given a 10/10 to anything on Destructoid before. Y'all need to play this series.
For those who would rather just look at some pretty pictures, I have those ...

'I was wired ready!'
Tales from the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo hits this week, so as is its custom, Telltale has released a trailer to pump audiences up for it. In Catch a Ride we learned Gortys's second upgrade was somewhere up on Heli...
