Think a game has bad controls? Maybe it's your fault

Number 56 on the master list of 235 "Things that I say that sometimes annoy people who play videogames" is that it's very rare for a game to have "bad" controls. Most of the time when people say that, they are focusing too much their idea ...

There's going to be a Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

A ratings board listing has outed the existence of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. You cool with that? Fruit Ninja was one of the rare titles for Xbox 360 that made decent use of the motion-sensing device, so it makes sense that the newer console wou...


Myo is a hands-free alternative for the Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift is a great piece of equipment, and up until now you needed to use motion--based controllers to simulate your own arms in some Rift games. Myo looks to take things one step further by freeing up your hands, thus creating a m...

Apple buys Kinect company photo

Xbox One's Kinect won't work anywhere but on Xbox One

When Kinect launched for Xbox 360, it was immediately compatible with Windows PCs. When Xbox One's Kinect launches, that won't be the case. Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox One's Kinect sensor was built specifically with the new console in...

This is what Double Fine's Leap Motion game looks like

Following the release schedule for the Leap Motion Controller and tease that Double Fine would have a game of its own for the device, more details have come out. This new title, "a music driven score challenge game" designed by folks who wo...

Microsoft is interested in using Kinect tech for tablets

Some of us aren't so keen on using Kinect for playing most types of games, but that's not to say the technology doesn't have its applications elsewhere. Can you imagine Microsoft integrating Kinect with laptops or tablets? Chief research an...


Witcher 3 gets horses and fire, Beyond gets Willem Dafoe

As we do every Friday (except for sometimes) we did a live Destructoid Show. CD Projekt Red announced some stuff about The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, and then dropped some new screens. Some stuff is being released in May, including Met...

Study shows videogames can help create better surgeons

This isn't the first time that a scientific study has come up demonstrating the benefits that videogames can have on budding surgeons, and it surely won't be the last. It makes sense: spend time developing hand-eye coordination and fine-mot...

Play videogames with a gesture control armband

Controllers and keyboards are standard tools in every gamer's repertoire, but what if I told you that a high-tech armband could be the next step in control interface evolution? Built by Canadian start-up firm Thalmic Labs, the Myo allows th...

Finger-tracking Leap Motion all set for a May release

The Leap Motion Controller is one of those devices that looks cool enough to buy even if it ends getting used, at best, infrequently. Thankfully, in this case, the device is $79.99 which is reasonable enough for promising yet unproven tech ...

Sony reveals DualShock 4

Sony has just officially revealed the DualShock 4 controller, which is pretty close to the photo we published last week. Mark Cerny, PS4 Lead System Architect, showed the controller during today's live stream event and provided ad...

Resident Evil: Revelations lacks Wiimote pointer controls

I hate to be the one to crush the hopes and dreams of the affable Jonathan Holmes, but it looks like the Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations will not offer a Wii Remote + Nunchuk option. Oh yes, we'll get lovely off-TV GamePad suppo...

Trends of this Generation: Waggling with motion controls

If current estimations are to be believed, the current console generation will be the longest we’ve seen in the history of gaming. As of right now, just a little less than one-third of my life fits between November 16, 2005 and now. T...

Rumor: Motion control kits for next Xbox 'in circulation'

For all of Microsoft's commercial success with Kinect, the device still seems to draw a lot of criticism for its lack of compelling supported games, and rightfully so. Perhaps things will be different with the successor to the Xbox 360, whi...


CES: MAG II gun controller needs no sensor bar

I sprayed virtual bullets all over the CES game section today trying out the MAG II gyroscopic gun controller. This "wireless magneton induction" controller uses a gyroscope and on-the-fly calibration to let you aim in first-person shooters...


J.S. Joust designer on art, failures, and motion control

Last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) was a real instant friendship time. Douglas Wilson is probably the most down-to-earth, PhD-educated videogame developer I've met all year. There was no subject he wasn't willing to roll with, from the...


The DTOID Show: Sony's New Controller, God of War & THQ

We were live earlier today for The Destructoid Show, and if you missed it... Shame on you. But here's a recording anyway. Sony patented a new controller that's kinda cool, but also stupid-looking. THQ's in the latest Humble Bundle, and it'...


Sony patents DualShock/Move hybrid that breaks in two

A new patent from Sony has revealed a unique little idea that potentially hints at future PlayStation plans -- a hybridized controller that blends both the DualShock and PlayStation Move into one gestalt beast.  The quirk with the "Mov...


CVG looks back on the origins of the Wii

On the eve of the Wii U's launch, it's time to pay our final respects to the console its replacing, because unlike the PS2, no company is going to be supporting the Wii from here on out. The Wii was a treasure trove of potential, most of it...


Jimquisition: Touch Waggle Touch Waggle Swipe

Over half a decade of frustration is about to be unleashed with glorious fury. It's been six years, the tech has been demonstrated, yet still the tech demos come. So few games have found a way to implement new interfaces gracefully, instea...


Johann Sebastian Joust is tag made awesome

Describing Johann Sebastian Joust is arguably one of the most difficult things I've had to do since I saw the game back at E3. The best I've managed to come up with is: "It's kind of like tag... But it's also got some elements of Ninja in ...


Skid to victory in this Wii U Sports Connection trailer

No, I didn't come up with that hilariously horrid pun in the title. That one was courtesy of Nintendo themselves in this new trailer for Ubisoft's Sports Connection on Wii U. Oh, you think they'd stop there, but no, they just kep...


The DTOID Show: Tony Hawk, Sleeping Dogs & Metro's Spider

The big news today is the newly announced voice cast for Sleeping Dogs, which includes Lucy Liu, Tim Wilkinson, Robin Shou, and oddly enough, Emma Stone. A video walkthrough of the E3 demo of Metro: Last Light is now online, and it involve...
