EVE Online
"It's super depressing," Andie Nordgren said with a sort of semi-defeated smile. She's the executive producer of EVE Online, one of the deepest and most complex sandbox video games in existence, and she's reacting to a key st...   read

EVE Online
Earlier this week, the Citadel expansion came to EVE Online. Two years ago, developer CCP moved toward releasing more frequent updates for the game, so this type of event is a relatively regular occurrence. Citadel, howe...   read

Lawbreakers
Boss Key Productions was all about free-to-play last year for LawBreakers, and then flip-flopped recently in March, noting that the game was now a premium product. Who does it think it is, Hillary Clinton? Alas, free-to-play for LawBreakers is dead, and Cliffy B helped kill it.   read

Golden Week
Welcome to Part 2 of my interview with Yanier "Niero" Gonzalez as we look back at 10 years of Destructoid. In Part 1, Niero and I discussed the early years of the website, its struggles, and its successes. For Part 2, I asked Niero about the future of this website, games journalism as it stands today, and the best game he's played since starting all of this.   read

Golden Week
I can't remember exactly what it was that brought me to Destructoid so many years ago. It had to be an article, probably a review, that attracted me here. I know for certain it was the community that made this my new home for...   read

Critical Role
Marisha Ray is surrounded by some of her closest friends, but there are tears welling in her eyes. A recent revelation has filled her with doubt and guilt in equal measure, leading her to believe that her previous actions may...   read

Far Cry Primal
Far Cry has always been very good at getting the player into an open world and letting them interact with nature. However, the reasons for arriving there haven't always been as strong. It's how you end up with frat boy turned...   read

Dragomon Hunters preview
"Dragomon Hunter is one of the games where we've made the most changes [to appeal to the western audience]," Aeria Games' Product Marketing Manager Alexandre Bousquet tells me. That doesn't mean shaving the points off of spik...   read

Active reload
With last month's re-release of Gears of War on Xbox One, we've been thinking about the active reload system a lot. Steven wrote about the mechanic out of a preview event, and wondered why it wasn't a bigger part of Gear...   read

Cliff Bleszinski
Ever since Cliff Bleszinski announced he was working on an arena shooter, it has had "PC-only" in most people's minds. It's definitely PC first and foremost, but that doesn't mean that it's restricted to PC. Bleszinski's very...   read

Cliff Bleszinski
If you were to look at Cliff Bleszinski's work history, you'd find a small gap between his time at Epic Games and the development of his new game, LawBreakers. A couple of years seems like a fair transition time, but Bleszins...   read

LawBreakers free-to-play
When Cliff Bleszinski formed Boss Key Productions to create the game now known as LawBreakers, he always knew that free-to-play was the model he wanted. That statement's not as black and white as it sounds. There's a lot of i...   read

Bleszinski interview
Just this week, Cliff Bleszinski and Boss Key Productions pulled back the curtain on LawBreakers -- the free-to-play arena shooter that has been in development under the codename Project BlueStreak. It's more than just the co...   read

Sega 3D Classics

Team Meat interview
I recently caught up with Edmund McMillen of Team Meat, who is working with frequent collaborator James Id on Fingered, a small project that's launching next week.

Assassin's Creed
It's not often we get to see a series recognize that things may have gotten off track. As many no doubt remember, Assassin's Creed Unity got hit hard with criticisms about its technical performance and odd design decisio...   read

Woah Dave!

Sega 3D Classics
Growing up, one of my favorite genres was the side-scrolling beat-'em-up. From Final Fight to Double Dragon, I was quite fond of the action found in traveling through different stages and kicking the asses of gang members and...   read

Rising Thunder

Interviewing developers can sometimes feel like pulling teeth. For example, when I spoke to Nier producer Yosuke Saito and director Taro Yoko about their game the other day, the pair spent a good portion of the interview dodg...   read

Nier 2 interview
Nier isn't the sort of game you would expect to get a sequel, but that's exactly what's happening. Square Enix surprised (and delighted) folks the world over when it announced the new project at E3. That news alone would...   read
