All of Halo 5's pre-order bonuses will be unlockable through gameplay

Minecraft's largest piece of artwork seems impossibly detailed

A lot of people make a lot of impressive things in Minecraft, but none of them go as big as Thorlar Thorlarian. That's not hyperbole, by the way; he actually has the world record to back it up. Recently, Thorlar finished a p...

The Evil Within's latest title update kills off letterboxing

The Evil Within had a letterboxed aesthetic that didn't fly with everyone. It added to the cinematic presentation, but some people couldn't stand it. Coming up on a year after release, Tango Gameworks is just now making ...

Reggie on new Metroid: 'We know what we're doing'

Many a Nintendo fan were met with disappointment one week ago when a new Metroid game was announced, but it wasn't anything like the Metroid game that they actually wanted. It didn't take long for the Internet to or...

Activision 'thinks a lot' about remastering Call of Duty games

The video game landscape in 2015 is rife with remake after remake, and it's just something that we've sort of learned to live with. So, why is a publisher with a reputation for chasing cash not pumping out upgraded remakes of...

This will be a nice eulogy for Batman if he dies in Arkham Knight

Like The Wallflowers (and David Bowie before them), we're talking heroes, if just for one day. And, in just one day, Batman will likely again prove himself a hero in Arkham Knight. That's sort of his thing. In this rather po...

Xbox originally thought backwards compatibility was impossible

Microsoft's E3 announcement that the Xbox One would be backwards compatible was a big one for fans who have thousands of dollars invested in the last generation of gaming. Two years ago, many struggled with the idea that thei...

Destructoid at E3: Steven eats a banana

[BREAKING: ORDER REVERSED! ORDER REVERSED! See pic below.] Eating healthy is important when you're at an event that's as hustle and bustle as E3. That's why Steven takes a minute out of his day to give his body the nutrients it deserves by scarfing down a delicious banana. Stay tuned for part two later tonight, in which he'll down too much whiskey and cry into his street burrito.

Star Fox Zero might have the best use for Wii U's GamePad yet

Only a few hours ago, the E3 show floor opened up. As soon as it happened, Nintendo's booth was flooded, and the half-dozen or so Star Fox Zero stations were thick with intimidatingly long lines. People were willing to w...

All of the upcoming amiibo, straight from the E3 show floor

Nintendo somehow managed to round up enough of these probably rare amiibo to put them in a glass case at E3. Lucky bastards. Do they even know how much these are worth? If Nintendo knew what it was doing, it'd sell those things on eBay. People are paying, like, sooooo much money for amiibo right now!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is coming to light in early 2016

The Deus Ex: Mankind Divided section of Square Enix's press conference ended with Adam Jensen saying "I can only fight enemies I can see." That's kind of dumb. Luckily, not everything is dumb. We got a release date for t...

Dreams is Media Molecule's latest wonderfully creative game

Ubisoft has turned your phone into a console camera

These are EA Sports' big focuses for Madden, FIFA, and NHL in 2015

Battlefield found a way to infiltrate EA Sports' PGA Tour

Rock Band 4 pre-orders are up, and the bundle will cost a pretty penny

Harmonix's Rock Band was a significant investment last generation. The barrier to entry for a proper full band experience meant buying a drum set, two guitars (if you didn't have any from Guitar Hero) a microphone, and t...

Rock Band 4 is doing a new fun thing you wouldn't expect

Everywhere I looked, my peers seemed to be having fun. Mere minutes before, everyone couldn't stop talking about how cold that Santa Monica rooftop was. It was the opposite of fun. Now, that had melted away, a distant memory ...
