Food review: EA always buys pizza!

This past Monday, I went to EA studios to play two new Burnout DLC packs. One was the Cops & Robbers DLC pack and the other was something that's embargoed. It has something to do with an island. Maybe. As always, these preview events hav...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Bionic Commando: Hands On

Note: If you think this looks tl:dr jump to the bottom for my conclusion and final thoughts. Once again Capcom have been foolish enough to intentionally invite the chaos that is the Destructoid UK crew into their pretty Hammersmith offices...

 
 
 
 

the mystery partner

While most internet discussions regarding Fumito Ueda's non-reveal of his next project is directed at his very vague description of it ("The game is similar to ICO."), I am more intrigued by his reaction to Suda51's brilliant prodding...

Interview with Carlos Ferro of Gears of War:

What do Deadpool, the Wizard of Oz, and Starcraft have in common? Well, it certainly isn't "Zerg", "Rainbows" or "Poptarts", so it must be "awesome"! That's exactly what you get in this Q&A session with the worlds greatest 'player two'. (I'...
