Shortly after the PS4's launch, Pornhub announced that it was the first porn site to fully support the PS4. Destructoid reached out to Pornhub following the announcement and got a load of interesting facts and breakdowns of c...
Couch co-op is sadly rare these days. Although I grew up playing games locally throughout my entire childhood, more often than not, split- or same-screen play is axed in favor of packing in more online features. Whether it's by way of "conserving resources" or pure laziness, it's becoming increasingly difficult to entertain a room full of people with videogames.
Thankfully, Spearhead Games' Tiny Brains opts for the best of both worlds, with both local and online play capabilities. Oh, and it's also a ton of fun -- with or without friends.
After last week's PlayStation 4 review domination, Microsoft finally got it's chance to strut its stuff with the Xbox One. Forza Motorsports 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, Ryse, and a handful of other exclusive titles flooded our pages this week. But regardless of all the Xbox One hype, their games were far from the biggest titles of the week.
Two titles, fin fact, garnered our coveted 10 out of 10 score. Nintendo's Super Mario 3D World and from Little Big Planer creators, Media Molecule, Tearaway. If you've been holding out on either the Wii U or PS Vita, you may have just found your first two must have system-selling titles of the year.
Remember daydreaming about a system that would let you buy and download games online, and then let you share your experiences socially? There was a day when the concept seemed so far off, but now that system is finally here. We've been talking about Sony's next game console for years, so it feels kind of weird to actually have one now.
The PS4 is a blend of technologies we expected and features we didn't. It's a clear step forward from where the PlayStation brand has come, and a statement on where Sony thinks games are going. It's less about what it is and more about what it does.
Like any good racer, the Need for Speed franchise never stops moving. They've come a long way since the early '90s, though the last few years' releases have been more about refinement of the formula than anything else, moving more towards an open world structure.
The latest in the franchise, Need for Speed: Rivals, takes a big step by going all-in on one mode that combines a single-player campaign with online multiplayer. The rest -- including the cops, the cars, and the crashing -- stay the same. In a sense, they've made it so players can jump in and go fast without having to worry about the details.
The Playstation 4 dominated this weeks review schedule and rightfully so. Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Resogun, and Contrast dominated our postings -- and as of last night my Facebook wall (please turn off your notifications friends) -- but they were not the only games worth talking about this week.
All in all it was a pretty exciting weeks for games. This year is quickly coming to an end, but we still have the Xbox One's looming release and one of the Destructoid's staff's most anticipated titles Super Mario 3D Worldright around the corner.
The PS4 has been out for a day or so now and people seem to be having a good time with the handful of launch titles. What about next week, when they've beaten all their ... PS4 games? What will they get a handful of then?
If you are one of these at-risk PS4 owners, and you're one of the few people in the world who enjoy videogames and pornography, then Pornhub has you covered. According to this probably NSFW tweet (the object in her mouth is hard to make out), Pornhub is the first porn site to fully support the PS4. This is the kind of 3rd party console support that matters in 2013.
As you (and Tim Curry) already know, the Wii U is also fully compatible with Pornhub and its related sites like Youporn and PornMD. What about Microsoft? Will they do what it takes to grasp onto the streaming porn audience, or will they let Xbox One lose that bone to the other dogs? Stay tuned to Destructoid for the latest on this evolving story.
As we draw closer to PS4 launch day, November 15, we will be bringing you reviews and previews from the launch window and beyond. This is where we'll collect all of our coverage, updating it daily as embargoes lift and more titles are released.
Think of this PS4 launch title guide as your one-stop destination for our coverage. If we're missing any titles you'd like to hear about, please let us know!
At a pre-launch PS4 event in New York, Sony showed off some of the neat little things the PS4 can do in a few morning presentations. We’ve only grazed the surface with what little they’ve shown us, so we’ll lay out what we’ve learned, and then continue to update this list in the coming days as we come across more neat tricks, tips, and features.
We'll do a deeper dive in a couple of days with retail PS4 units. Stay tuned.
We're a week and a half away from the PlayStation 4's November 15 North American release. Will it be the leading console this generation? Will people buy it at launch and then sell it in six months because people always do that and I still don't know why? Will it be able to distract us from ever looming ennui, wresting us into a fervor of consumption?
This guide will tell you, I bet. Like all good churches, I have all the answers.
Don't forget to check our comprehensive Xbox One guide, too, to compare the incoming hardware and make a more informed decision on which you should pick up, if any.
The Metal Gear series has a rich history on the PlayStation platform, and because of that Konami is including a special throwback mission in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The PlayStation-exclusive is called the "Deja Vu Mission," and it will let you play as Classic Snake in all his polygon ugliness in both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 version of the game.
So, uh, great. Nothing like showing off your brand new shiny Fox Engine on a next generation console than including the ugly PlayStation 1 era model of Solid Snake.
Tonight during the PlayStation All Access launch event on Spike, developer Naughty Dog revealed that they're working on a new entry to the Uncharted franchise for the PlayStation 4.
No more details were given beyond that. The teaser trailer showed off a map, a voiceover of someone looking for revenge, and simply the name Uncharted. Is it a prequel? A sequel? A whole new storyline that has nothing to do with Nathan Drake?
Naughty Dog wouldn't say but they did tease that there are clues hidden in the trailer.
The holidays are quickly approaching and so are two brand spankin' new consoles. It's already one of the craziest times of the year to buy things, and both Sony and Microsoft are only adding to the chaos. How does one even prepare for the madness of the next gen of gaming?
Well, while they may have the two hottest items to hit the stores this season, there are still a myriad other choices out there clamoring for some of ours, and your, hard-earned cash. Nintendo is coming full force with the Wii U and Super Mario 3D World, the 3DS has a new Zelda, and Sony's Vita is finally finding its groove after a price drop. Let's not even forget that looming around the corner is the Steam Box, and some killer current-gen titles like Ultra Street Fighter IV and Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2.
So what will you be buying this holiday season? PlayStation 4, Xbox One, perhaps a shiny new Wii U? Not one of those you say? Wait, all of them...
Yeah, you sound like most of the Destructioid team below:
Every system launch needs a good platformer, right? Knack is a bit different from, say, Crash Bandicoot or Ratchet and Clank, but it does feel like it takes a bit from both games. Of course, that has a lot to do with the its creator, Mark Cerny.
Cerny worked on both Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet and Clank, as well as other top PlayStation platformers like Spyro the Dragon. It’s great then that the PS4 has a launch game with such solid PlayStation platforming DNA.
But is Knack strong enough of a platformer to lead the way into next-gen?
For franchise sequels that accompany system launches, it's not uncommon to see the reuse of assets or game engines. We've come to expect a simple turning up of the graphics, if you will. The good stuff? The brand new stuff? That usually comes later.
Killzone: Shadow Fall does not follow that pattern. Guerrilla Games went back to the beginning, starting fresh with its first PS4 game. Sometimes a fresh start is the best thing.
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman (later the entirety of DC), Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, and The Lord of the Rings -- arguably a majority of the world's largest entertainment properties -- have all been brought to life in videogames after being passed through the adorable LEGO filter by Traveller's Tales. And, well, they've handled each franchise masterfully and created some truly great games with each of them over the years. What could possibly be next?
I can't be the only one who's been dreaming since LEGO Star Wars that we would one day see LEGO Marvel make its videogame debut, but, seeing as Traveller's Tales is a subsidy of Warner Bros., it was seemingly never going to happen. However, by some remarkable turn of events (due to the magic of licensing), here we are with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
It's nothing short of a miracle this game was even made, but it's something we can only be happy about.
