Dead Rising 4 shambles over to Steam today

Something about Dead Rising 4 is dead and it's not all the zombies (because they are actually undead, post-alive). It's Microsoft's timed-exclusivity. Capcom Vancouver's slapstick, Christmas-themed zombie survival game has broken free ...   read

A quick taste of Destiny's Age of Triumph update, the last one before Destiny 2

The sequel to Destiny, or "Destiny's Child" as it's affectionately called in Destructoid's staff chat, is coming later this year. That doesn't mean the original game has faded into obscurity. There's one last event planned that will pay ho...   read

Meet Jaal, a squadmate from one of Mass Effect: Andromeda's few new alien races

It seems as though a lot about Mass Effect: Andromeda will feel familiar. Even though there's an entire universe to draw from, the cast will be mostly the same. Humans, Turians, Salarians, Krogans, Asari -- those are the folks we can ...   read

Quake Champions will be free, but there's also the option to buy it

There's a certain degree of mystery surrounding Quake Champions. The allure here is that it's Quake, and that's a classic franchise that a lot of people cut their teeth on. But, it's also 2017 and that means publisher Bethesda might be susc...   read

Sonic Mania is still great, Tails continues to suck

Little Sibling Syndrome took over big time as I visited Sega's San Francisco office last week. I was there to see Sonic Mania, an upcoming throwback to the hedgehog's glory days. In an attempt to lead the demo, a Sega representative played ...   read

Harmonix's next project is DropMix, a physical card game

The next title from Harmonix won't be anything similar to what we know the music-focused studio for. It's not another spin on Rock Band or anything else resembling note-matching perfection. It's not even really a video game. It's ...   read

Here's a first look at Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy

We've known about Telltale's take on Guardians of the Galaxy for so long now that it seems crazy that we're just now getting an actual glimpse at it. It's true though! Four months ago, we got this Walkman floating through space, and it...   read

Middle-earth: Shadow of War really puts the 'more' in Mordor

ARK Park: An up-close and safe look at the dangerous dinos of ARK

ARK Park. It has a staccatoed cadence to it that's so damn entertaining to say. I saw it on the Wednesday of GDC and spent the entirety of the week barking it out like DMX pretending he's a dog. Steven, who just would not stop singing the f...   read

Here's two dang seconds of Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Even though the video says it's a paltry five seconds long, the meat is actually even less. It's two seconds. Orc looking like he wants to fight, ranger riding a dragon, everyone yelling. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am, we're out. But, this te...   read

Try to wrap your head around The Sexy Brutale's temporal metroidvania approach

I don't understand The Sexy Brutale. I played for an hour while chitchatting with design director Charles Griffiths. After that hour, I felt like I was almost there, like everything had almost clicked. But then the demo ended and I was left...   read

Jacking minds and fragile psyches in Observer

There is a man in front of me, and he is in rough shape. He's bleeding all over the place, slumped up against a wall. His apartment is kind of a dump but not "dying guy on the floor fits right in" levels of bad. Rather than call for help, I...   read

In some ways, Tim Schafer's Full Throttle fits in better in 2017 than 1995

With a press of the PS4's touchpad, I quickly switched between Full Throttle's visuals from 1995 and what it looks like in the remaster. It's not a new trick -- both Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle had remasters with the same fea...   read

Hitman is $20 off on Amazon today, but only with this code

Marvel says it wants developers to tell new stories with its characters
