Ubisoft walked me through The Division, and I'm still unsure about it

The demo for Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division was one of the weirdest experiences I had at EGX. Ever since the game was announced, I have been cynical that what we've seen of it so far has been very controlled and carefully c...   read

Guitar Hero Live left me afraid to ever try playing live music

Back in my mid-teens I played drums in a hastily thrown together rock band. We mainly played pretty bad covers of other people's songs, occasionally writing our own tracks that went on far too long and were excessively simplistic. Still, we...   read

What does the Destructoid UK Team think of Tri Force Heroes?

At the tail end of last week, UK editor Laura Dale and news team member Joe Parlock both whisked themselves away to the EGX games convention in Birmingham to play a bunch of unreleased video games. Looking for multiplayer games to try, they...   read

What does the Destructoid UK Team think of Assassin's Creed Syndicate?

At the tail end of last week, UK editor Laura Dale and news team member Joe Parlock both whisked themselves away to the EGX games convention in Birmingham to play a bunch of unreleased video games. Top of their lists? Assassin's Creed Syndi...   read

Valve: If VR makes you sick, it's the developer's fault

Fear of motion sickness and living room ruining vomit is one of the sticking points surrounding the definitely-happening-and-not-at-all-actually-unlikely VR revolution. And while I kind of dislike the relative sensory deprivation of VR, the...   read

DestrUKtoid Episode 20 - Patty Jack

The UK, it exists and Destructoid now has writers there. Great British Pounds. Eastenders. Steptoe and Son. The Destructoid UK Podcast (DestrUKtoid). This week UK Editor Laura Dale is joined by Joe Parlock and Vikki Blake to talk about EGX,...   read

Virtual reality never worked for me until I got to try the HTC Vive

A long time ago, Valve and HTC boasted that their upcoming VR headset -- the HTC Vive if you’ve somehow managed to miss it -- would cause nausea for "zero percent of players." That sort of absolute statement got me interested, because...   read

The HTC Vive is an absolute VR game changer

A few months back at E3, I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on both the retail version of the Oculus Rift, as well as the PlayStation VR, back then known as the Morpheus. As a big fan of VR in theory, if dubious about the tech in...   read

Megaton Rainfall let me be Superman at EGX 2015

I got to have a wander around EGX 2015 in Birmingham last week, and found myself spending quite a lot of time in the indie section of the show floor. There were games using puppets and door-stoppers, games with big and fancy displays, games...   read

Rainbow Six Siege won't have a solo campaign

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege will not feature a traditional single-player campaign. Speaking at EGX this weekend, Ubisoft's Scott Mitchell, the art director on Rainbow Six Siege, confirmed the game's focus is on multiplayer, with little i...   read

Don't expect Sony to make another portable

In case you hadn't already guessed, Sony is unlikely to make another dedicated gaming handheld. Speaking during a panel at EGX this weekend, SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida expressed that while he personally is "a huge fan" of Pla...   read

Indie Megabooth's bringing more indies to EGX

There are a few glorious, magical days where the Destructoid UK team gets to actually write about news from the UK. They happen very rarely, but thankfully the stars have aligned and today is one of those days. God save the bloody Queen. An...   read

Former Rare devs share first look at Banjo successor

Today at EGX Rezzed, Playtonic showcased the first in-engine screenshots of Project Ukulele. Speaking at the event, the seven-man team of former Rare veterans said they were blown away by the fan response to their recently announced spiritu...   read

Party with Destructoid at EGX Rezzed!

Morning, Brits. Thousands will be heading to London's Tobacco Dock later for EGX Rezzed's preview day; are you one of them?   read

LA Cops brings mustaches and doughnuts to tactical shooters

Bringing a game that's early in development to a show like EGX is both a good idea and a scary one. You can get plenty of helpful feedback and some comments that aren't so helpful. "Yeah, we had this kid who was like eight years old tell us...   read

Human Orbit will let you indulge your rogue AI fantasies

Is it me or are all artificial intelligences on spacecraft always evil? GLaDOS, HAL, SHODAN, the ... steering wheel thingy from WALL-E -- all of them were pretty evil, or at least fairly negligent in their jobs and now it's your turn to joi...   read

Calvino Noir is a European, smoky, noir-ish stealth game

I think I've probably made it clear that I like a good stealth game and thankfully I had the chance to try out the lovely-looking Calvino Noir at EGX. Set in post-war Austria (I forgot to ask which war... whoops), players control Wilt, a de...   read

I had a good time watching Monsterum scare people

I talked yesterday about how horror games are difficult to demo at a convention; you need to block out so much noise and activity around you to be really immersed in what you're playing. Team Junkfish had no such problems as their upcoming...   read

War for the Overworld is the Dungeon Keeper sequel you wanted

When the recent Dungeon Keeper mobile game was released by EA, it went down like a barrel of stinking fish; it took the core concepts of the franchise and saddled them with a freemium model that made it a chore to play. Thankfully, UK stud...   read

Heat Signature is already looking hot

Heat Signature was one of the games I most wanted to get my hands on at EGX. Designer Tom Francis was the guy behind Gunpoint, one of my favorites of 2013, and this next title similarly allows a great deal of player expression and freedom. ...   read

Playing Alien: Isolation on a convention floor isn't the best idea

Demoing a game like Alien: Isolation at a convention such as EGX or PAX has always been problematic since horror works best when there's time for quieter moments between the scares. There has to be a period of tension building before you st...   read

Robot platformer Poncho is worth backing

Whenever I've posted an article about a videogame Kickstarter, I've tried to lean on the side of titles that have either a demo as that helps ease some of the potential doubts you can have while backing a project. The team behind Poncho mad...   read
