Those sexy beasts at Codemasters have dangled another Overlord III teaser in our faces. It's less than three minutes long, but the new trailer -- entitled "Previously on Overlord" -- brings newbies up to speed with the happe...
There are a few glorious, magical days where the Destructoid UK team gets to actually write about news from the UK. They happen very rarely, but thankfully the stars have aligned and today is one of those days. God save the b...

We here at Destructoid sometimes get a bit distracted by the crasser things in life. When we’re not making sweet love with fictional wrestlers, we’re wanking off cars, but we’ve got to have a bit more class ...
Game console price drops: great news for consumers waiting to make a purchase and irritating to those who've recently been out shopping. If you've been holding off on buying an Xbox One in the UK for the price to dip a little...

Final Fantasy -- that has some pretty great music in it, right? You know what would probably make it sound really good? Being played by the London Symphony Orchestra at London's Barbican Centre on September 12. Just as a rand...

Some of you don't like Twitter and I have no idea why. But I'm always looking out for yous, so when PlayStation UK tweeted out this 10% discount code, I knew I had to cover for my backwards friends. The code -- L5MFCEP358 -- ...
Everything you could say about Soul Axiom feels reductive. It looks like Journey mixed with Tron, except when it looks like Tron mixed with Tron. It’s a puzzler that evokes The Ta...
Today is a good day, European Nintendo fans. Or maybe a not so great one for your wallet. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and the first dozen amiibo figures all arrive in Europe star...
Official Nintendo Magazine is ceasing operations, Future and Nintendo UK confirmed today. The publication's next issue will be its last and will book-end a 12-year run when it hits stands next week, October 14. The website wi...
Most of us won't recognize Pitbull Studio by name, but the company has worked with Epic Games in the past on Gears of War: Judgment and, most notably, Unreal Engine 4. Now, the two are further extending their partnership as P...
The re-branded EGX London (formerly the Eurogamer Expo) has announced the first batch of games that will be playable on the show floor. There's no big surprises as publishers have broken out the big guns like Evolve, Alien: ...

After nearly two years of being on the ropes, Nintendo's troubled console has finally gotten a pick-me-up. And a major one at that. With the release of Mario Kart 8, which secured the #2 spot in the UK for most sales during t...
Are you ready to headbutt cars and lick strangers? Me too. How about in-game, though? Get ready to do it all over again with Goat Simulator's upcoming physical release in the UK. Koch Media announced today that a retail ...
European PlayStation Plus members will have plenty to play throughout May. I'm trying hard not to be jealous of their next batch of free titles -- to just be happy for them -- but that's a nigh impossible task. Not when they'...
There was some confusion this morning about a possible delay for the PC version of Dark Souls II, which is already later than its console counterparts. Regrettably, there is a delay, to May 2 -- but only in the United Kingdom...
The Last of Us cashed in on five of its nine 2014 BAFTA nominations, including winning Best Game and Best Story. Not quite 10 awards at D.I.C.E., but good. Tearaway overtook it for Artistic Achievement while also winning in t...
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has come out with its nominations honoring last year's videogames. We've seen enough awards that you surely know what I'm about to type. Much like the D.I.C.E. Awards, it's plau...
Sony has announced the PlayStation Vita Slim for the UK following the model's release in Japan last year. This thinner, lighter system will be available in black on February 7 for £180, which is a higher price than some...
The "for the children" UK internet restriction filters are going full bore this month. You remembered to opt out, right? If you didn't, not only are you going to be prevented from seeing my erotic Sonic fanfiction (which is u...
Last month we learned aged rental giant Blockbuster would draw its last breath on US soil by January 2014, when all 300 remaining locations would be shut down. Blockbuster UK is beating us to the punch, it seems. The 91 remai...
Yesterday I posted on why you should all watch Charlie Brooker's How Videogames Changed the World. Realizing that it might be hard to watch if you're outside the UK, it's worth sharing this clip from Channel 4 News, where Br...
I really enjoy my Wii U. At this point it has a solid library of titles to choose from, and I tend to play it rather consistently -- I also would consider the GamePad to be my favorite control method out of all the current op...
Following on from 2009's Gameswipe special, acerbic critic and former PC Zone writer Charlie Brooker has delivered another excellent videogames program this time on Channel 4. How Videogames Changed the World is a two-hour sp...
If you didn't know, November 30 is St. Andrew's Day in Scotland. He's the patron saint of this fair land (along with Russia and Greece apparently) so with some semblance of national pride, I decided to look throughout the ann...
[Update: EA has lowered the price of digital PS4 games again, down to £54.99, the same price as the Xbox One, Eurogamer reports. So the parity is nice. That's still quite expensive, at about $100 USD, and more expe...

Ubisoft has confirmed today the existence of a PlayStation 4 bundle which includes a copy of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, releasing in the UK on November 29 alongside the rest of the console's launch. Just as with the alr...
I've been in love with the Luigi 3DS XL since it was announced for Japan in April. Now Europe gets theirs. It's up for pre-order, priced at £179.99.  But the big news is this gorgeous gold, triforce'd 3DS...
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is shaping up to be something special. I don't think many of us 3DS owners need much convincing, but if so, take a look at the pre-order bonus UK retailer GAME is offering: a miniatu...
If you're a UK resident and pre-ordered your PS4 from SimplyGames, you might want to check on the status of your order, as the retailer has apparently hiked the previously locked in price of  £349.99 to £414....
