Review: Just Cause 3

While driving down the New Jersey parkway for Thanksgiving, I began to notice a lot of water and radio towers perched high above the trees. "Wow, I could easily blow them up or tether them to the ground and bring them down," I thought. ...   read

The first hour of Just Cause 3 is predictably wild

It's common for media to share the "first __ minutes!" of a new game release, but I don't recall too many big-name developers partaking in that practice. Avalanche has put up the first hour of Just Cause 3. If you are concerned that this ga...   read

Just Cause 3's newest trailer nails it all on the head

Just Cause is such a marketable game. Any footage, trailers, or screenshots inevitably capture what makes its mayhem so marvelous. Everything is just non-stop action and the viewer always comes away thinking "Yep, that's Just Cause&nb...   read

Oh, right, Just Cause 3 has a story

I'm a fan of the Just Cause series for its freedom of movement, particularly when it comes to aerial antics, but some people live for all-out destruction. Others, like Destructoid reader Coil_Whine, are into the story. That's the focus of t...   read

Just Cause 3 makes for a neat 360-degree video

It might just be that I'm still new to 360° videos and my sense of wonder hasn't worn off yet, but I got a kick out of this one for Just Cause 3. We get to follow protagonist Rico Rodriguez on a wingsuit ride as he blows up bases and sh...   read

Just Cause 3's Xbox One file size is kind of extreme, but not really

Just Cause revels in its penchant for doing everything over-the-top. It wants you to hang upside-down from a helicopter, plant C4, dive toward the earth as the whirlybird explodes above you, grapple onto another helicopter, hijack it and se...   read

Just Cause 3 looks like such dumb fun

Producer of embarassing Hitman: Agent 47 making Just Cause 3 movie

Review: Mad Max

I grew up with Mad Max. It was one of the first R-rated film series I viewed as a child, and naturally, I saw Fury Road, and enjoyed it like everyone else on the planet. My infatuation with the films is mostly due to George Miller's vision,...   read

Just Cause 3 is giving away a goddamn island, and you probably want no part of it

We like to discourage pre-ordering video games. Sometimes games are broken. Sometimes games suck. No one needs to fork over money before they know the final verdict. However, sometimes video games use their pre-order siren song to lure you...   read

On the fence with Mad Max? Here's over an hour of gameplay

As much as I loved the recent Fury Road, I've had a tepid response to Avalanche's (Just Cause 3) Mad Max game, which has looked bland and lacked all the vitality of the film. It's basically looked like the first Borderlands before they gav...   read
