Surprise! But not really!
The new and almost certainly not final installment of Five Nights at Freddy's has released a couple of weeks earlier than expected. It's available for $7.99 on Steam.
Given the events of the last game, Five Nights at Freddy's...
I had feared the worst
"Feist isn't dead! Aiming for a 2011 release."
That was a headline I wrote in January of 2011 and, no, I wasn't talking about the singer. I was referencing an enchanting, long-in-development game about a creature who must esc...
New update, playable on Mac and Linux
Aspyr has a real pleasant surprise for Star Wars fans today. The company released an update for Knights of the Old Republic II on Steam that helps ensure the Obsidian Entertainment-developed RPG will live on for another decad...
All 1,400+ game deals return as well
Update: Interestingly enough GMG is limiting copies of ESO to 1 per customer.
Remember that $12 ESO deal from 9 days ago? We sure do -- the game actually went "out of stock" halfway through the sale last week. (Yep, digital p...
All looks a bit fishy
[Update: It appears as though this may well have been an unfortunate misunderstanding, as the save location on the version of Big Fish Legend available from Alawar actually mentions Igry.ru. This screenshot showing the locati...
Calling all Buster Bros.
Capcom's good old bubble-popping shooter Super Buster Bros. (Super Pang outside of America) lives on as the inspiration for The Bug Butcher, a newly-released game on Steam Early Access.
As the butcher, you'll avoid attacks an...
The medium is the message
The Magic Circle is a game set inside of a game, where you bend and break the rules to make it another game entirely. This is all in service of makings a meta-contextual statement about the game making industry and the tension between the creator and the audience.
Still with me after that? Then you're probably The Magic Circle's target audience.
They drew first blood
When someone told me that the developer of Pokemon was creating an action platformer called Tembo the Badass Elephant, I knew I had to give it a shot.
While a few of the design choices are a bit odd, they don't overshadow the sum of its parts.
Game with the Horsetoid Community!
One day there was a promiscuous pony, and that little whorse decided to cross the road. He had heard someone shout "HAY!" and wanted to see who it was. The voice seemed to come from down an alleyway. The little whorse grew sc...
Win one of 10 copies!
Thanks to our friends at Fugitive Games (Sorry I took so long Alex!), we have 10 copies of Into the Stars for you lovely folks to win! What is Into the Stars you ask? Here's the synopsis from the Steam page:
"Take the role of...
Ok, I'll take it
I was pleasantly surprised by High Moon's Deadpool game. Sure it wasn't the most polished action game, but it was mostly true to the character, and was a decent enough little romp. Then... it was gone. One day it just va...
Check under the bed
At the end of the the last Five Night's game, Freddy's Fright, the horror funhouse based on the infamous, and defunct, Freddy Fazbear murder-pizzeria burnt to the ground. It seemed like a fine place to wrap up the series -- ...
And not from an American perspective!
West Asia (the "Middle East") doesn't get great screen time in games. Mostly it's a setting for contemporary American war stories rather than for stories of the people who live there. 1979 Revolution changes that, setting yo...
Out of left field this All Star week: Sol Divide has come to Steam. Looks like an emulation of the PS1 port, and early user reviews suggest it works pretty good.
But where did this come from? Well, the publisher is listed as ...
Nep Nep Ahoy!
Our friends at Idea Factory International have been kind enough to hook us up with 4 copies of Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2! 2 for Steam and 2 for Vita! How awesome is that? What is Hyperdimension you ask? Well here is ...

Quiplash is what you get when Fibbage and Drawful get a few drinks in them and stop screwing around. When you strip down the flimsy excuse of a lying/trivia game, remove your friends embarrassing chicken-scratch doodles, and leave nothing but raw, undiluted, punch-lines. It's a party game that is so minimalist, it's almost not there.
Thankfully, with the right group of people, it's also hilarious.
Jumpin' good deals
The weekend arrives and GMG's 2015 Summer Sale chugs on to day two. Some decent pickings this round with Dishonored GOTY for only $8 (plus you get a freebie mystery game). Hotline Miami 2 also hit a historic low pri...
Game with the Dtoid Community!
I am pretty damn addicted to Rocket League at the moment (It's sad that's the last article about it from us, c'mon guys). Soccer with jet powered cars.... just works. It's the most insane, competitive fun, that I've had in a ...
Totally PG-13 deals
Digital retailer Green Man Gaming just kicked off its 2015 Summer Sale and the Day One batch of deals looks fairly decent if you're a horror/zombie game fan.
Until July 23, there are new batches of deals every 24 hours, ...
'Trailers are just lies set to music'
Back in January, I had the pleasure of checking out The Magic Circle, a charming and funny adventure title that poked fun at the chaotic, often insane challenges of game development. There's a launch trailer to set the mood ...
Free content update also available
Depth, the terrifying underwater multiplayer game which pits sharks against divers, is rolling out a ton of neat stuff this week for Shark Week.
Beginning Thursday at 10:00am PT, Depth will be free to play on Steam for the we...
Vacation is Over!
So it’s been a while, and during my absence I’ve gotten a new job, become a kid and a squid, fought for the glorious team dog, learned two programming languages in a single weekend, became a 5th edition druid, and...
Poo and tears for everyone!
Rejoice, fans of fetuses and feces! The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will be coming to the Xbox One, Wii U, and New 3DS on July 23. Please note the new there, as it will not be available on the older model.
Thanks to Opium Pulses' & Flying Bundle

He asked for it....
What can any single one of us say about the greatness of M. Randall Antoinette of Dixonia III? What could we say that does him justice, I mean? Andy is larger than any one achievement, act, or even nipple. Andy is a God among...
New expansion coming soon too
Somehow I have missed out on Card Hunter for the past couple years. It released in 2013 and Destructoid's reviews patriarch Chris Carter loved it. I don't know how it wasn't on my radar; it has a lot going for it I'm into. I...
"I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state," an anonymous quality assurance tester on Arkham Knight told Kotaku. "It’s been like this for months and...
New map, mechanics, and balance changes
Team Fortress 2 gets a new update tomorrow called the Gun Mettle Update. To summarize, the game is taking on many ideas from its much more popular cohort, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
First of all, weapon skins...
Team Ninja was supposed to enable online multiplayer for the PC port of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round by the end of June, months after the game debuted on Steam. Hasn't happened.
