Bob's Burgers coming to Zen Studios pinball games

I don't see Tina, the best character
Oct 06
// Darren Nakamura
Joining Family Guy in Zen's "Balls of Glory" Pinball Pack is the vastly superior Bob's Burgers. The table is set up on the street outside the titular restaurant, with It's Your Funeral Home & Crematorium next door and Jim...

Everything we know about Far Cry Primal

Humanity's the underdog
Oct 06
// Brett Makedonski
Well, that didn't take Ubisoft long, eh? Yesterday's tease via stream lasted only a day before the French publisher couldn't stand the excitement anymore and announced Far Cry Primal. Here's what we've learned since then. Far...

The Beginner's Guide

The Stanley Parable writer's new game releases this week

The Beginner's Guide
Sep 29
// Darren Nakamura
Normally, what we have here would hardly be worth a post. All we have are a handful of weird screenshots, a barren teaser website, and the following description: The Beginner's Guide is a narrative video game ...

Mushroom 11 release date

Mushroom 11 spreads its spores on October 15

National Mushroom Day
Sep 28
// Darren Nakamura
Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, work...

Here are 22 Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone screens to tide you over

Just two more weeks
Sep 28
// Brett Makedonski
I write, you read -- that's the arrangement we have here. It has worked fabulously for the past three years (except for those of you who hate me). As if a substitute teacher were in class, I'm going to take it a bit easy on y...

Paladins behind-the-scenes video goes into the deck-building aspect

'We love making free-to-play games'
Sep 23
// Darren Nakamura
Originally announced as just "Paladins," Hi-Rez's free-to-play team-based shooter Paladins: Champions of the Realm is set to have card collection and a sort of deck-building aspect. Details were scant during the announcement,...

Valiant Hearts creator teams up with Wyclef for Lost in Harmony

'Mystical and brave'
Sep 16
// Darren Nakamura
Valiant Hearts' director Yoan Fanise worked at Ubisoft for 14 years before leaving earlier this year to form his own studio, Digixart Entertainment . Today at Tokyo Game Show, the fledgling company revealed its firs...

Digimon World: Next Order

Digimon World: Next Order has some new screenshots

How many Leomon will die this time?
Sep 11
// Joe Parlock
Dang, Digimon World: Next Order is looking really pretty. Bandai Namco has released a whole load of new screenshots for the upcoming (currently Japan-exclusive) Vita game. The screenshots show off the two lead protagonists an...

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360 looks surprisingly not bad

Xbox One on top, 360 on bottom
Sep 07
// Brett Makedonski
Microsoft's really leaning into this whole "Rise of the Tomb Raider is an Xbox exclusive for a little while" thing, so the game's coming out on both Xbox One and Xbox 360. But, last-gen is kind of an afterthought, and it...

Disgaea 5 has sexy eye candy for all, dood!

Also a pissing penguin
Sep 04
// Jed Whitaker
I've got my grubby hands on an early copy of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance for PS4 and decided to snap some screenshots -- which oddly get watermarked automatically -- while I do what I've done with every game in...

EndWar Online beta

Tom Clancy's EndWar Online closed beta starts today, runs through November

'War never ends'
Sep 01
// Darren Nakamura
I had forgotten about Tom Clancy's EndWar Online. It was originally announced just about two years ago, took on some alpha playtesters, and went dark to everybody else. Today, it is coming out of alpha and into a closed beta ...

Proteus developer announces Forest of the Sleep

A game based on Russian fairytales
Aug 27
// Joe Parlock
Proteus developer Ed Key has announced his latest project. Apparently making one pretty game with Proteus wasn’t enough, and so he’s back with Forest of the Sleep. Forest of the Sleep is a collaboration betwe...

Gassy Mob

Fart on everyone and run away with Gassy Mob

Devolver Digital publishing, of course
Aug 19
// Darren Nakamura
Fart. Toot. Fluff. Pass gas. Flatulate. However polite you want to be while describing gas escaping from a butthole, it's still a pretty impolite thing to do in public. Impolite and funny (to me). Like this classic gem: Why ...

Tales from the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo screenshots, we got 'em

Is episode five out yet?
Aug 18
// Darren Nakamura
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 ...

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 out next week

Have some screenshots
Aug 12
// Darren Nakamura
From the announcement of the "crowd-play" event at PAX Prime, we knew Tales from the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo was imminent. I figured the event attendees would have advance knowledge and the rest of us would get it the ...

The Walking Dead: No Man's Land features tactical zombie killing

Voice work not as bad as 'Merlinderl'
Aug 11
// Darren Nakamura
Oh! A game based on The Walking Dead that focuses on tactical zombie survival? Sure, sounds great. Or maybe it doesn't technically sound great, as Norman Reedus really hams up the voice work in this trailer, going overboard w...

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Good lord, Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is pretty as hell

Or at least as pretty as Valhalla
Aug 10
// Kyle MacGregor
Odin Sphere was pretty. But this, this is better. Oh man, it's so much better. Oh, in case you haven't heard, Vanillaware is remastering its 2007 PlayStation 2 classic as Odin Sphere Leifthrasir for Sony platforms. The u...

Hue uses color to solve its puzzle platforming

Jul 31
// Darren Nakamura
Making objects disappear and reappear at depending on visibility has been done before, but Hue multiplies that idea by a factor of four. Instead of it being a simple light/dark dichotomy, backgrounds in Hue can be one of eigh...

Roll Playing Game gets the ball rolling this fall

And other ball-related puns
Jul 30
// Darren Nakamura
We might just be in a new renaissance of "roll the ball to the goal" games right now. Super Impossible Road showed us the benefits of breaking the rules. Polyball took it to a trippy otherworld. Now we have word about Roll Pl...

Hard West playable at gamescom and PAX Prime, releasing this fall

Kanye and Kim's second child
Jul 30
// Darren Nakamura
Hard West did enough to impress Kickstarter backers last year, with its bloody Old West theme and its tactical combat. Good news for fans: it's looking like this one won't be languishing in development limbo like so many othe...

Iconoclasts finally gets a release announcement: Steam and Sony systems in 2016

Also drops the 'the' from its name
Jul 29
// Darren Nakamura
We have had our eyes on The Iconoclasts for a while now. It started development in 2010, and we have covered whispers of updates sporadically since then, including a rad mecha-worm boss fight using rail transport last year. G...

Severed delay

DrinkBox's Severed is being delayed past summer

A few new screenshots to show off
Jul 29
// Darren Nakamura
Guacamelee! was rad and DrinkBox Studios' next project Severed has a lot of the same stuff going for it, despite existing in an entirely different genre. It has that same sharp cartoon art style and it doesn't shy away from s...

XCOM 2 Muton is borrowing Marcus Fenix's Lancer

Jul 23
// Darren Nakamura
2K Games and Firaxis just released a couple screenshots for the new Mutons in the upcoming XCOM 2, and something jumps out right away. Is that a chainsaw bayonet? Granted, it's not like anybody could "own" the idea of attachi...

Game of Thrones: A Nest of Vipers screenshots, we have some

Jul 21
// Darren Nakamura
Another episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, another batch of screens I took while playing through for review. This batch seems especially small, for two reasons. For one, I was less diligent about taking scree...

Fairy Fencer F flits to PS4 with Advent Dark Force

Jul 17

Compile Heart's middling Fairy Fencer F is getting an enhanced version as part of a jump from PS3 to PS4 this November in Japan. It adds characters, story paths, and ups the party size to six, as you can see above in the wrig...

The fifth installment of Telltale's Game of Thrones series, A Nest of Vipers, will be released later this month. Good news if you've been growing impatient, particularly as we're already halfway through July. Yay. The confirm...

Building, crafting, crashing, and laughing in Crashlands

I am a poet
Jul 14
// Darren Nakamura
I'm fighting the urge to do the lazy blogger "if X and Y had a baby" thing, but I don't know if I can help myself. Crashlands looks like what would happen if The Behemoth (BattleBlock Theater) were to develop Klei Entertainm...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline

Pop shove-it into your eyeholes
Jul 13
// Darren Nakamura
Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as ...

Suffer through economic recession in indie RPG Family Man

Capers, please
Jul 13
// Darren Nakamura
Papers, Please released a couple years ago, but it struck a chord with many who played it. One of the most discussed elements was the decision-making process between doing what is right and doing what is necessary. First-per...

Activision publishing companion game to this year's Peanuts Movie

Snoopy and Woodstock cooperate
Jul 08
// Darren Nakamura
Those trailers for The Peanuts Movie are pretty dang cute. It's neat to see the computer models and animation done in the style of the old cartoons. The movie will show up in theaters on November 6. In a move hearkening back...
