Watch me unbox (and break) the Intel Box Master System


Including an i7-6700K and 750 series SSD
Aug 21
// Jed Whitaker
Intel decided to send us two giant boxes full of things, including its hot new 8-bit Intel Box Master System featuring wood side paneling to unbox on video. I couldn't possibly do a straight unboxing video -- that isn't my s...

Lara doesn't need to murder everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider


Just some people
Aug 21
// Brett Makedonski
The Rise of the Tomb Raider section of Microsoft's gamescom press conference was filled with knives to the back and arrows to the head. Given the large stage, it's obvious why Crystal Dynamics showed a violent slice of ...

Now there's a shoot-'em-up in Mario Maker


Super Shmup Bros.
Aug 21
// Jordan Devore
Super Mario Maker isn't out until September 11 and I'm already feeling inadequate. At this rate, any level I dream up will pale in comparison to what we're seeing on YouTube. I'll give it my best anyway. The folks at GameXplain have crafted a shoot-'em-up level called Super Shmup Bros. and it's another neat example of how powerful the creation tools are in the right hands. Wings for everyone!

EA goes way over the top to promote Madden


We didn't see this coming
Aug 21
// Brett Makedonski
EA Sports' promotion of Madden has largely been the same for years now. Gameplay trailers, new features, interviews with developers -- we've been there and done that. This is different. This is...weird. And, kind of amazing....

Heroes of the Storm has a neat little Duck Hunt homage


It will likely go away next patch
Aug 21

Whenever you have time, boot up Heroes of the Storm and check out this cute new Easter egg. It takes place in the Monk's splash screen following the latest patch, and allows you to play a small little game of Duck Hunt....

Aug 21

The announcer packs for Dota 2 are easily some of the best purchases available within the free-to-play game. Personally, I go back and forth between the Stanley Parable and Bastion announcers. Not only are the...
Pokken Tournament photo
Officially official
Pokken Tournament is the talk of the town -- the only issue is that basically everyone outside of Japan can't play it. Until 2016 that is, as Nintendo has just announced that Pokken is coming to the Wii U worldwide next...

While I was on vacation this week visiting relatives, Capcom uploaded more Monster Hunter cat videos. What a treat to come home to. The first one is over here, if you missed it.

Groundhog Day: Has the Assassin's Creed series become too boring?


(Yes)
Aug 20

With Assassin's Creed Syndicate coming out later this year, the series will have another chance to prove that it can shake its current malaise. Will grappling hooks, vehicles, and a (pretty cool-looking, though unfortuna...

This Mario Maker level plays like a Metroid game


Metroid U
Aug 20

Between Metal Gear Solid V and Super Mario Maker, my schedule for September is Chinese-buffet full. Both games are going be huge time sinks. They're also tons of fun to watch pre-release. Take this level created by&...

Meet The Avenger
Aug 20
// Brett Makedonski
The Avenger is where stuff happens in XCOM 2. It's where staff gets assigned, it's where research gets done, it's where scientists explain their roles in a new 12-minute video from Firaxis. Go ahead and get acclimated with t...

What does time even mean anyway in Nova-111?


Find out for yourself very soon
Aug 20
// Brett Makedonski
Funktronic Labs' Nova-111 was the highlight of my BitSummit in 2014. It blends turn-based movement with real-time elements to make an action puzzler of sorts. All of this is to rescue 111 scientists. Just trust us -- it...

So really, it's the only way
While reviewing Curses 'N Chaos, I've come across a lot of different strategies. Ultimately, though, only one proved useful. So before you go out trying to kill monsters like a n00b, please watch this pro-level video from the top player on the pro circuit, me.

Reminisce on Metal Gear's storied PlayStation history


New video from Sony
Aug 19

We already know that the vast majority of Destructoid readers are getting Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC and PS4, so it makes sense that Sony would spring for a legacy video, given their history with the ser...

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 ...

This LEGO rendition of Hyrule Castle is a work of art


Complete with characters on the scene
Aug 19

It's crazy to think how far people have come in the arena of LEGO construction. As a kid I kind of just make these straight towers, that I'd often use as swords until they slowly broke apart (Lincoln Logs for life). Now, peo...

Japan is getting a sequel to Picross 3D, with amiibo support


Nice
Aug 19
// Chris Carter
Picross is a series you don't hear about too often, but it has a rather loving fanbase. You're about to get some love back in the form of a new game, which is heading to the 3DS in October in Japan. Set to debut on the first of the month, it will launch for 3,000 yen, and will be available both digitally and physically. Hopefully it arrives overseas!

No teammate screwing it up, either
Aug 18

What do you do if this goal gets scored on you right off the bat? Do you just rage quit? Is there even any rage, knowing that this opponent clearly has you bested? Do you just hang your head and walk home? Really, its upside...

Previously, Microsoft locked out the option to stream 1080p60 from your Xbox One to your PC by default, but as of today with an August update for the PC Xbox One app, everyone can just click the "Very High" option. Other enh...

Unofficial 'amiiqo' can save amiibo data without buying the toys


Nintendo not pleased

People are varying degrees of upset over Nintendo's not-unexpected decision to lock content -- even if it's mainly costumes and the like -- behind amiibo pairing. The "amiiqo" is an okay answer to these complaints. The compl...

Lego Dimensions Scooby Doo looks delightfully campy


Where are you? In a hella-expensive game
Aug 18
// Chris Carter
I have no idea what to expect with LEGO Dimensions. So far it seems like a "me-too" type situation, and hot damn, the add-ons look expensive as hell. But of course, the properties involved (14 in all so far) are just insane....

With a name like Blubber Busters I was expecting something akin to that video where some knuckleheads try and dispose of a beached whale with dynamite, sending gore and viscera all over looker-ons (not to be confused with th...

Curious: does anyone pronounce Just Cause like Just 'Cuz? Just wondering. Why? Just 'cause. Hah. But seriously. I know some of you must've started with that pronunciation and it stuck, right? I mean, it works, too. That was ...

Aug 18

WWE newcomer Kevin Owens has already had spats with John Cena, Cesaro, and Michael Cole, but he won't find any of them when he gets to the bottom of this ramp. That's because his entrance video for WWE 2K16 is in NXT wh...

Activision has announced a new Skylanders game called Battlecast, and it's a free-to-play mobile card game. I'm guessing they want to get in on that sweet Hearthstone money (which funnily enough, is part of the sam...

Not recognizing a majority of music in games has been a running theme this year. Guitar Hero Live largely falls victim to this. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 definitely does. Fortunately, Rock Band 4 does not. Harm...
