Yakuza 6 was the best game at TGS 2016

Yes, I can already hear you pounding away at your keyboard in an angry comment about why such and such game is amazing or will clearly be the best. It might very well be. I can't tell you that Yakuza 6 will end up being a better produc...   read

ReCore's missing fifth robot seemingly coming as DLC

Players who have put significant time in ReCore have noticed something that's kind of off. The game makes room for a fifth robot companion -- there's allotted space in the menu, references to the T8-NK frame, and five hunting challenge...   read

You can and should download The Crew for free on PC

Before I woke up, a news tip came in today that Ubisoft has begun offering The Crew, its open-word multiplayer-centric racing game, for free on PC. It's a limited-time offer through Uplay, and it doesn't come with the worth-having Wild Run ...   read

Catch a glimpse of Horizon Zero Dawn before the robot apocalypse

While the lush, robot-filled grasslands make for the more interesting setting, it was neat to see the world of Horizon Zero Dawn before it gets overtaken by nature, back when it was filled with skyscrapers and urban-living. The team was ca...   read

ReCore's lengthy load times won't be improved for launch

Now that I've had a chance to play through all of ReCore, I realize that it's a game I liked a lot until I no longer liked it a lot. It stumbles and falls the longer it's played. All of the frustrations mount until its welcome is worn out. ...   read

Review: ReCore

"Are those cores weighing you down," ReCore's antagonist asks toward the end of the game. Whether or not the developers realize it, it's an apt bit of meta commentary. ReCore is brimming with ideas -- some great and some not -- and the...   read

Ubisoft is onto something cool with Steep

While snowboarding games have had a slight resurgence on Steam, the big publishers -- including EA, which sadly doesn't seem interested in doing anything with SSX -- have been sleeping on the genre. As such, Ubisoft's Steep was one of the b...   read

Tokyo 42, a sexy looking game inspired by classics like Syndicate and the original Grand Theft Auto, still doesn't have a release date for 2017, but at least we now know which platforms it'll appear on. Developer SMAC Games and pu...   read

Review: Fallout 4: Nuka-World

We’ve mused before at Destructoid that Fallout 4 has had one of the worst season passes worth of DLC in recent memory. With a lineup of filler Workshop DLC that mostly focused on the settlement aspect of the game, and the ambitious bu...   read

Final Fantasy XV's second half is said to be more story-driven

When I think of Final Fantasy XV, I think of driving around the countryside, hopping out to chase down and beat up monsters, admiring decadent food, and camping with my buddies. Open-world, dudes-on-a-road-trip-type stuff. But that's only b...   read

Watch Dogs 2 unveils its multiplayer modes

Watch Dogs 2 continues the long string of ambitious hit-and-miss multiplayer offerings from Ubisoft, with a take that supposedly is akin to a living, breathing world. I'll believe it when I see it, but the video below makes a decent case. A...   read

There's a good chance the Assassin's Creed Ezio games are getting remastered

We aren't getting a new Assassin's Creed this year (save for two Chronicles games and a movie), but we might be getting some old Assassin's Creed sometime soon. Well, it's new old Assassin's Creed. Remasters. Remasters i...   read

Review: Grow Up

In many ways, Grow Up is the quintessential Ubisoft game. It's rife with the systems that have come to define the French publisher -- specifically an open world and a ton of collectibles. Actually, that's basically the entire make...   read

SCUM, a prison riot survival game, is a-comin' early next year

I'm pretty sure we all know that we're just a few short years from seeing actual bloodlust integrated into our reality television. Croteam (Serious Sam and The Talos Principle) and Gamepires (Gas Guzzlers Extreme) want to explore that with ...   read

Another serene look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Temple of Time

In terms of substance, there's admittedly not too much going on in this latest video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But Nintendo's audio folks have worked their magic again and, like the E3 2016 trailer that I still occasiona...   read

The Outcast remake is happening and it looks good

Efforts to revive the cherished sci-fi action-adventure game Outcast have taken longer than its creators and fans would have liked. There was a Kickstarter for an HD reboot, but funding just didn't come through. Now, years later, the projec...   read

Mafia III's city has a lot of districts, and they're all really stabby

"Ah yes, Pointe Verdun. The entire district runs on whisky and rage," this new Mafia III video matter-of-factly states. After watching the whole clip, the whisky part might be the only thing that makes Pointe Verdun stand out. Violenc...   read

Mafia III's Irish underboss looks badass, but he's certainly no anarchist

"An anarchist with no fear." That's how Mafia III's underboss Thomas Burke is described. Except everything that we know about Burke runs contrary to the definition of anarchy. Anarchists are people who don't believe in authority or order. ...   read

This Mafia III live action trailer ruins a perfectly good suit

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...   read
