Review: Gears 5

It was the best of Gears, it was the worst of Gears. It was an amplification of everything every Gears before did well, and it was a maturation of everything those same games struggled with. It was an identity crisis, a dysmorphic preoccupa...

Review in Progress: Gears 5

Microsoft confirms Gears Tactics for Xbox One

The Gears of War franchise got a lot of love at E3 2018. In addition to confirming the existence of Gears 5 (which no one thought was under debate), we also got the sort of satirical Gears Pop! and Gears Tactics confirmed as spin-offs for t...

Gears 5's Escape mode scratches the Gears co-op itch

In some ways, Gears 5's Escape mode is a subversion. This series has been so entrenched in Horde mode ever since Gears of War 2, you and all your teammates hunkered down in the, well, trenches. Stay immobile, pop up at opportune times, keep...

Look out Jordan, there's something behind you!

Something disastrous almost happened this morning. Jordan, an important COG in the Destructoid machine, was nearly gutted by a monster! It would've been a real low point for his blogging career, to have been torn apart limb by limb as a Swa...

At last year's E3, Microsoft's big focus was Play Anywhere gaming. That's the initiative that's rooted in the mindset that people can play first-party Microsoft games on both their Xbox or PC; the transition should be seamless. But, an inte...
