The winner of the battle of the E3 2012 predictions!

Before E3, I posted Destructoid's annual E3 predictions. It was an epic competition for the ages. A competition even more brutal than the Thunderdome, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale COMBINED! I asked a videogame analyst (Jesse Divnich), a ...   read

E3: Daedalic and the return of the classic adventure game

One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh air. This year, m...   read

E3: Hands-on with Project P-100

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded me of Elebits, ...   read
