It's been relatively quiet on the PlayStation VR front, but here's some good news for the not-too-distant future: the cyberpunk hacking puzzle game Darknet is getting a port in "early 2017," priced at $15. In his review of the Oculus Rift ...

Some mad genius hacked Bubsy into Streets of Rage 2

I'm a simple man. All I need in my games are cute characters, things to jump over, and dudes to punch in the face. But little did I know that I needed something like this. Thanks to Metal64, Bubsy is now a playable character in Streets of R...

PlayStation Network is suffering from another DDoS attack

Sony can't seem to catch a break with its online network. According to a report at GameSpot, PlayStation Network (and most of ISP Dyn's network) has been suffering from outages today. While some minor issues were resolved in the morning, an...

The hackers that ruined Christmas 2014 have been arrested

I actually have quite a fond memory of Christmas morning in 2014. My cousin had come over with his family and his son wanted to play NBA 2K15. I figured, why not? I'm never going to touch the game (which came as a pack-in with my PS4), so w...

This might be what your character looks like in No Man's Sky

A super sleuth over at NeoGAF has been data mining the PC release of No Man's Sky and has discovered some interesting stuff such as odd textures, a poop effect, a tiny monkey wearing a fez, and an astronaut model that could very well b...

New mod undubs Persona 4 Golden

Thanks to the recently released HENkaku hack for the PlayStation Vita, you can now insert the Japanese voiceovers into Persona 4 Golden, pending you also own a Japanese copy of the game or are a filthy pirate. I can only assume that the Ja...

Oh hell yeah, Quadrilateral Cowboy is out this month

It's been 47 years since Brendon Chung announced Quadrilateral Cowboy and it finally has a release date. The latest from the developer of the excellent Thirty Flights of Loving and Gravity Bone is coming out July 25 here and on Steam....

Project: B adds tripping to Super Smash Bros. Melee

A couple years ago, I wrote about why I like tripping in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, (reviewed here for Destructoid by Battleborn writer Aaron Linde), and people really seemed to care about what I had to say. The post apparently got so b...

New 3DS hack enables wireless video streaming

Capturing video from a 3DS is cumbersome. It requires a physical mod to be installed onto your console, costing a ton of money as well voiding your warranty to hell and back. Who has the time for that? That's why Reddit user Yangumasuta is ...

Prankster gets paint drying simulator on Steam

A lot of shovelware makes it onto to Steam, but Watch Pain Dry, a game literally about watching paint dry, seemed a bit over the line. In fact, that was the point. Watch Paint Dry was never designed to be a real game, an art project, or eve...

This Super Metroid hack is a pseudo-remake of Metroid Fusion

We don't know much about what's in store for the future of Metroid. Sure, Federation Force is coming (and I begrudgingly shaved a Metroid into the back of my head when it was announced), but I'm hungry for another side-scroller or firs...

Pokemon on PlayStation? With hacks, anything is possible!

Hacking group "Fail0verflow" -- the same group that hacked the PS3 five years ago -- has taken advantage of an exploit in the PlayStation 4 to start messing about under its knickers, which is to say I myself know little about hacking and i...

Valve says around 77,000 Steam accounts are hacked each month

There's a real problem concerning Steam account security. For years, hackers have targeted Steam users to gain unauthorized access to their accounts and clear out their inventory of items. It's a familiar story, but it's an ever-growing one...

Review: Clandestine

Asymmetric multiplayer is not an easy feat to pull off efficiently. Sure, it's relatively simple to create two gameplay styles within the same game, but to make them blend together to create a unique ebb and flow is something that's not see...

 
 
Origin data dump photo

Hundreds of EA Origin accounts leaked online yesterday

Yesterday, a now-removed Pastebin was full of personal data on EA Origin account holders, according to CSO Online. While most fields in the text dump were redacted or incomplete, roughly 600 Origin accounts beginning with letter A through F...

 
 
Pokemon Shuffle Mobile photo

Of course Pokemon Shuffle Mobile's leaderboards are hacked

There are already a lot of reasons why Pokémon Shuffle Mobile is inferior to the previously released 3DS version, like the increase in item prices, the removal of Jewel rewards for beating Mega evolutions, and the addition of tw...

Cops arrest 6 teens linked to Lizard Squad

Remember when our beloved Sony and Microsoft servers were continually down last year because some idiots sitting behind their keyboards thought it'd be cool to cripple an entire population of gamers? Well, the authorities haven't forgotten ...
