(Update) Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will not be offered as a free upgrade on PC

[Update: It turns out my assumption about EA holding the rights to the original game seems to be true. Other users took to asking Randy Pitchford on Twitter and he responded with, "Not possible - completely different publisher, era, platfor...   read

Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has a two-part premiere

Announced at The Game Awards, Telltale's season premiere for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier ended up becoming "a little too big to fit in one episode." So, naturally, we're starting off with a two-parter! This new episodic adventure seri...   read

Oblivion headlines new backward compatible titles

Want a crazy little piece of trivia? Destructoid launched four days before Oblivion in 2006. Yes, both this site and the game are over 10 years old, which is an incredible feat. Both are still being talked about all these years later and bo...   read

Rayman Legends is now backward compatible...wait, what?

In a bizarre (and pro-consumer) move, Rayman Legends for Xbox 360 is now backward compatible on Xbox One. While the game received a native Xbox One version in recent years, I guess Ubisoft and Microsoft are trying to gain some goodwill by n...   read

Xbox's Games with Gold for December includes Burnout Paradise backward compatibility

For once, the most exciting part of Xbox's Games with Gold comes not from a new release but from a very old release. It's the Xbox 360 and not the Xbox One that's the star of the show. Xbox has announced December's Games with Gold, and 2008...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Guardian of Gotham

Multiplayer in Batman: Arkham Origins will only exist for a couple more weeks

WB is closing down the multiplayer side of Batman: Arkham Origins on December 4, 2016. It's strange to learn that a game had a multiplayer mode by way of an announcement about said mode's fast-approaching closure, but that's exactly the sit...   read

Rip and tear (pin)balls in Bethesda Pinball next month

Zen Studios had runaway success with its Zen Pinball series. While the first game wasn't too widespread, Zen Pinball 2 has been ported to more devices than I can count. It even has a Wii U port, which is basically just for show with most de...   read

This new labeling for backward compatible Xbox 360 games is helpful

While it doesn't appear to be widespread, I hope this approach to labeling Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One through backward compatibility catches on. NeoGAF user Xyrmellon snapped these photos at Walmart and wondered if anyone ...   read

The sublime simplicity of Skate 3

The analog sticks on my PlayStation 3 controller refuse to stay in place. They're loose and unruly to an absurd degree. The right stick drifts upwards, slowly and surely, without a thumb to guide it. When I apply pressure to it, the stick c...   read

Bastion's coming to Xbox One, but it's more than just backward compatibility
