Bastion's coming to Xbox One, but it's more than just backward compatibility

Games from the Xbox 360 library making their way to Xbox One isn't anything new at this point. Microsoft announced a backward compatibility program between the two platforms at E3 2015, and hundreds of titles have taken advantage of it sinc...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: New World Order

The saga continues. Batman is in a jam, and now in typical Batman-related fashion, he's forged more enemies as a direct result of his own actions. What's a Bat to do? Punch and think his way out, of course.   read

Review: King's Quest: The Good Knight

King's Quest has had a good run over the course of its five-episode spread. As an overlooked adventure series from the minds of developer The Odd Gentlemen, I think part of the reason it's been off so many radars is because the first c...   read

Review: Corpse Party

Yes, we're reviewing Corpse Party. We already did it back on the PSP. Not much has changed since then, but sometimes a game is so interesting and so unlike anything else on the market that it deserves a second look.   read

Maize's chatty corn and Russian teddy bear left me wanting more

Cornfields are an underrated pick for places that have the potential for bad and/or otherwise weird shit to happen. Sure, they aren't as ubiquitously ominous as abandoned hospitals or decrepit mansions, but cornfields have a long history of...   read

Review: Paper Mario: Color Splash

I need to apologize in advance for what you're about to read. I'm about to gush about a game. I'm going to gush hard. I'm going to gush about its graphics, about its music, about its humor and about all the improvements it made over Pa...   read

Review: King's Quest: Snow Place Like Home

I think the King's Quest series is going to sneak up on people by the end of the year when it's included in several low-key "best of" lists. It doesn't elicit the same kind of hype as a Telltale game, especially when it comes to Batman, but...   read

The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

PAX this year was a little strange for me. I was brought on to Destructoid just as the deadline to apply for media badges expired, so I went to the show as a regular attendee, and didn't take appointments like Brett and Jordan did. I still ...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Children of Arkham

I've been reading a lot of Batman lately. No, not necessarily the stories where he's just kicking ass and taking names with all those wonderful toys -- tales where he's vulnerable, or where Bruce isn't even the star. Where, Phantom&nbs...   read

Rare employees need to work on their pirate vocabulary

Rare, a developer that is currently making a pirate-themed video game, doesn't know a ton of pirate vernacular. Or so this video would make it seem. Sure, the sample size is pretty small and the questions are kind of obscure, so it probabl...   read

ReCore's missing fifth robot seemingly coming as DLC

Players who have put significant time in ReCore have noticed something that's kind of off. The game makes room for a fifth robot companion -- there's allotted space in the menu, references to the T8-NK frame, and five hunting challenge...   read

Review: Event[0]

The mad A.I. is a classic sci-fi trope. WOPR, poised to start a nuclear war because it doesn’t understand the difference between what's real and what’s just a game. H.A.R.D.A.C. replacing the citizens of Gotham and cloning Batma...   read

Review: ReCore

"Are those cores weighing you down," ReCore's antagonist asks toward the end of the game. Whether or not the developers realize it, it's an apt bit of meta commentary. ReCore is brimming with ideas -- some great and some not -- and the...   read
