Surprise! Nomura didn't know he was directing Final Fantasy VII remake

But if I'm here...and you're here...who's driving the boat?! Tetsuya Nomura is directing the Final Fantasy VII remake, and he's already talked about ways in which it will differ from the 1997 original aside from just the visu...

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight

[Note: This review is based on a retail PlayStation 4 copy of Batman: Arkham Knight, not the PC version that is so broken publisher Warner Bros. temporarily delisted it from sale] If the difference between the real Batman and...

999 and Zero Escape writer's new game coming to PS4, Vita

What with Zero Escape not being profitable and the trilogy being put on hold, series writer and director Kotaro Uchikoshi (999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors) went and wrote an anime called Punch Line. It has a pretty ...

Final Fantasy VII remake: No new characters, more realistic gameplay

First, I'd like to know if "there won’t be new characters" includes previously invented Final Fantasy VII characters, say from Advent Children, or if it means no new characters added relative to the original Final Fanta...

Kingdom Hearts III worlds set, mostly new

Hoping some fan favorites from series past would make it into Kingdom Hearts III? Well you should let it go. That notion, I mean. Let it go, like from the movie Frozone. Tangled was also confirmed at E3. Anyways, Gematsu tra...

Persona 5 screenshots leak via Dancing All Night bonus disc

I wouldn't blame you for avoiding these if you want to wait to experience them in the majesty that is the second Persona 5 trailer, from where these screens were ripped. Folks in Japan got their hands on Persona 4: Dancing All Night early along with the special bonus disc that contains a Persona 5 trailer, so be on the lookout for that soon. Also, blue-haired guy a new character?

Rustic: Rust generates avatar cock size by Steam ID

Haha, rustic. I think it's time for Jordan to take another Rust adventure. The open world survival sim is fascinating. It recently made headlines when players flipped out after it randomly assigned face and skin tone to users...

Keiji Inafune still loves robots, talks about ReCore

"Robots play a very important role in this adventure, and there will be many more robots that will lead to a rich experience." Okay, Inafune, we get it. Newly announced ReCore is your third (3rd!) Not-Mega-Man game. It's jus...

NIS gets creepy with new teaser

These days, Japanese games being creepy usually has more to do with upskirts than spooks. Fatal Frame couldn't even get squeezed into Nintendo's E3 event. Still, very-anime publisher and developer Nippon Ichi recently upload...

Where's our Batman: Arkham Knight review?

A select handful of reviews for Batman: Arkham Knight have popped up on the net this morning. We don't have one up and we likely won't have one ahead of its Tuesday release. In fact, it's looking like I will be heading out to...

Xbox One's Phantom Dust no longer in active development

Microsoft announced a Phantom Dust reboot at its E3 conference in 2014, but less than a year later the project was shelved, allegedly due to unfair demands by Microsoft. Developer Darkside was shutdown and over 50 people lost...

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world

Shenmue 3's existence is pretty neat. Its presence on a major publisher's stage show to hock a Kickstarter is less neat, to me. Obviously the $2 million goal (and $3.5 million raised at time of writing) would not be enough fo...

Video impressions: Uncharted 4's extended E3 demo

I got to see another large chunk of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from after the trailer cut off at E3. I wrote about that a bit here. I've also written a bit about why I think Uncharted 4 has the potential to be much better than Uncharted 3's poor showing. Anyways, if you want to see the video we shot in conjunction where I crouch in some bushes as teens do skate tricks nearby, here's that.

Gust's dark RPG Land of No Night continues to look good

I was surprisingly impressed with Gust's (Atelier) new PlayStation (3, 4, and Vita) action RPG Yoru no Nai Kuni, or Land of No Night, when we got a first look at the gameplay (and whatever shreds of fabric the character is wearing in that picture). This new trailer shows off the battling a bit more, as well as some of the menus and monster accumulation system.

Hands-on with 2D Souls-like Eitr

Zack and I finally played Eitr, which I've talked about before, at E3 this year. Then we sat very close together in camping chairs, shared a mic, and talked about it. To quote a YouTube comment, "Is everyone is dtoid just ga...

Headmaster is NOT a VR porn game for Morpheus

"Though its lessons may cross over," get it? Crossover, like the soccer move? (We kicked it and I scored, soccer game). Because Headmaster is (sort of) a weird soccer game and not about giving virtual blowjobs (you'll only g...

25 minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay

There's so much to talk about in the first minute or two alone. Going in on mechanical Apartheid. Sexy leather pants. Jensen's spiky ass designer facial hair (and skull hair). The fucking Illuminati!!! A game that isn't piss...

Tearaway PS4 has a companion app

Tearaway was one of the few games to take complete advantage of the Vita's extra features, smartly tying all of them into the narrative. Thus, porting it to the PlayStation 4 feels a bit odd. Apparently one way Tearaway Unfo...

The most unrealistic thing that has ever happened in a video game

"I liked Indigo Prophecy, but Heavy Rain and Beyond sucked." Oh, is that right? Heavy Rain is a little bit bad, and I haven't played Beyond, but let's never get rose-tinted when talking about Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy. Beca...

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator videos show off Johnny, newcomer Jack-O

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is the totally normal and appropriately named follow up to Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, which Chris loved. Johnny is a series mainstay, but pumpkin faced Jack-O is a newbie and, uh, interesting. That's definitely the most sexual crouch animation I can remember seeing. She is 2 live.

Nintendo announced a new Metroid so we gave Zack a haircut

Ah, young, handsome Zack Furniss. Relatively new to Destructoid and attending his first E3 for the site, Zack was wide-eyed and hopeful. He imagined a world of Metroid Prime 4 or Super-er Metroid and took his e3thusiasm to d...

Extended Rise of the Tomb Raider video is way better than the E3 trailer

I was beefing a bit with Rise of the Tomb Raider for its heavily scripted sequences in which you hold forward on the analog stick as the game just sort of nonthreateningly happens around you (except for when a brutal cutscen...

Fallout 4 'dialing back' graphics, runs at 1080p/30fps

[Update: Bethesda's confirmed via Twitter that none of this applies to PC (as was implied). According to the publisher, "Resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on the PC."] Fallout 4 ain't looking like Witche...

The Solus Project sends you alone into space

The Solus Project is a "single-player survival game by Teotl Studios (The Ball, Unmechanical) and Grip Games, coming to PC and Xbox One in early 2016." It basically sounds like the upcoming Matt Damon movie The Martian. Dead...

Gameplay from the Fire Emblem & SMT inspired idol RPG

It is almost as difficult to discuss Genei Ibun Roku #FE as it is to fit it into a headline. The JRPG was borne from what was previously "Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblemi," but turned into "an entirely new experience" that ...

ZombiU Xbox One listing spotted

One unlikely Wii U game looks like it'll be reanimated with an Xbox One port, Ubisoft's ZombiU. An Australian Rating Classification board listing for "Zombi (Xbox One)" is a good hint that Ubisoft intends to repackage the unp...

Lost Dimension brings anime paranoia to PS3, Vita

Have you ever felt like you can read snippets of your friends' thoughts and that some of them are out to get you and you'd be better off killing them? Same, same. Lost Dimension tasks a group of 11 capable warriors with stop...

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven trailer, release date

Tentacles, muscles, new characters, and a 2015 release date confirmation (in Japan). That's the new from this JoJo trailer for CyberConnect2's first PS4 entry in the series, Eyes of Heaven.  JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle just came to North America last year. I still haven't watched the show, but this looks as insane as people (and gifs) make it out to be.
