Cellar Door wants to do another Rogue Legacy, but not yet

Cellar Door Games didn't get its start with the "rogue-lite" Rogue Legacy -- it previously found success in making browser-based games -- but that's likely going to be the title we associate with the studio for years to come....

Chances of a Last of Us sequel: '50/50'

I love The Last of Us. I also don't think it needs a sequel. When asked about a sequel in a Reddit AUA, Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann said "right now I'd say it's 50/50." I'm team 50. That is, the 50 that r...

No plans for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 on next-gen

During our session with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 back in December, we got the chance to sit down and talk with the game producer Dave Cox about the expansions and innovations the sequel has made over the original. We le...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bold and uncompromising
by Alessandro Fillari

In 2010, Konami took a chance on the obscure Spanish development studio MercurySteam to create a reboot for one of the most adored and quoted game series ever. While Castlevania: Lords of Shadow went on to become a popular seller and was admired for its storytelling and action, it was a also a polarizing entry among fans of the series.

Now, the developers are back with their next and final title in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series -- and they fully intend on leaving their mark on the franchise. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is daring, shows the clout that the developers earned from their previous outing, and also marks the first time we'll get to play as the infamous Dracula.

Destructoid was invited out to play the first few hours of the game, where we also had some time to chat with game producer Dave Cox. We got to see firsthand what it took to bring this iconic character to life, and how the developers at MercurySteam plan to make the series relevant again.

BOO-hoo: Call of Duty: Ghosts might not be a trilogy

Call of Duty: Ghosts has done decidedly less well than usual with critics. Gaming everyman Chris Carter called for a stop to annualization. Call of Duty fan Jim Sterling even gave it a 5. Still, the litmus test for CoD succes...

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Yes, it's one of those episodes where we celebrate one game getting it right and not stuffing everything up. Speaking of stuffing, Jim at last unveils the Dragon Dildo ... and does things with it. Terrible things.

Arkane hints at what's next for Dishonored

Arkane Studios has -- for the time being, anyway -- wrapped up Dishonored, now that The Brigmore Witches DLC is out. The stealth-action title has done well enough to be considered a full franchise by publisher Bethesda and it...

Upcoming Tomb Raider comic to 'lead directly' into sequel

Jimquisition: Sequel or Slaughter
by Jim Sterling

Must every new videogame become a sequel-spawning franchise? Is it through necessity, or simple avarice that mainstream game development makes it so?

A little dash of jarnalizm, a spoonful of introspection, and two massive barrels of furious indignation bore to the core of this subject, in the only way Jimquisition knows how -- brutally. And without mercy.

Broken Age, Below, and more: The games of HORIZON

As previously discussed, Venus Patrol and MOCAtv's "alternative E3 event" HORIZON was pretty interesting both conceptually and in how it was executed. But what about the games?! That's why we're even here, right!? A few of the larger announcements to come out of the event have already been covered here at Dtoid, but what about those smaller, beautiful indie games HORIZON promised?
