Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming in March, much sooner than I thought!

Mass Effect: Andromeda was always locked in for a first quarter 2017 release, but I thought for sure it would be pushed back. Nope! That's definitely not the case, as EA has confirmed to Destructoid that Andromeda now has a firm M...   read

Nab all three Assassin's Creed Chronicles for $1 in this Humble Bundle

The mainline Assassin's Creed series just isn't my particular brand of comfort-food gaming, but its 2.5D subseries, Chronicles? I think I could get down with that trio. If you don't mind going through Uplay (Windows only), there's a new Hum...   read

Rime re-revealed for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch

You probably know Rime as that island adventure game with the Ico and Wind Waker vibes. Hey, me too! The project garnered a fair bit of attention these past few years, and for good reason, but its production woes have surrounded it in a t...   read

Don't ignore CES this year because there's gonna be some Mass Effect gameplay

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) takes place in Las Vegas at the beginning of each year. It's sort of an odd one for us in that it's just a smidgen too tech and hardware-centric to really get excited about. It's on our radar but it rarel...   read

Delve into Ganon's lesser known pig-man backstory

Since Did You Know Gaming has covered basically every classic series ever at this point, they need to start to work into the more granular type stuff. You know, breakdowns of characters and the like. But this actually works well with Ninten...   read

The Amazing Spider-Man games removed from Nintendo eShop

Both of the Amazing Spider-Man games that were last released on consoles were how should I say...playable. They tried to recapture the magic of the old school GameCube-era 3D series, but had a decent number of bugs that got in the way,...   read

Are you aware of what Kingdom Hearts: 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage even is?

This month, a new Kingdom Hearts game is coming out! Wait, what? Yes, I'm serious. The crazy thing is no one really knows about it outside of the most hardcore fans. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will drop on Janua...   read

Devil's Third online servers officially dead

Devil's Third may have had microtransactions crammed into its online mode that could have turned people off of it entirely, but it was damn fun for what it was. "Was" being the operative word here, because it's D-E-D dead now. We knew that ...   read

Kamiya shares his favorite Wonderful 101 songs, sadly tells us the soundtrack is out of print

While I didn't go as gaga about Wonderful 101 as some, I was wondering where all of the buzz was. Maybe it was the weird off-putting Sentai setup that made some westerners stay away, or the low installbase of the Wii U, but this game d...   read

My wishlist for Hitman Season Two

Overwatch, I'm going to let you finish, but Hitman was one of the best games of all time! OK, well maybe not of all time, but as my personal favorite game of 2016 it got my vote for Destructoid's Game of the Year. While we're at i...   read

Musou Stars producer wants 'a bit' of the body physics engine from Dead or Alive in the game

Musou Stars is still a thing, and it's glorious. It's basically an all-star mashup of Koei Tecmo's brawlers, and they're really starting to get weird with their cast choices -- I love it! But a few cast members might fundamentally change th...   read

NieR: Automata feels like a return to form for Platinum

NieR: Automata is a big deal for me. It's an action-heavy game from Platinum, devoid of the baggage that comes with its recent deluge of licensed materials that seek a larger audience. In this era where niche products are generally shunned,...   read

Drone Fight for 3DS looks like a minature version of Virtual On

There's nothing quite like Dark Souls. It's a series that intrigues and ensnares, temping its players to persevere against harsh odds to see the next captivating set design or beautifully vile boss. At times, these games teeter over the edg...   read

A 30 second trailer for the Gravity Rush anime is all I need

I must have watched the below teaser around 10 times now. I mean, it's not even 30 seconds (it's more like 20), but it shows so much. Mostly centering around Kat and Raven, the Gravity Rush anime will bridge the gap between the first a...   read

So, Gravity Rush 2 seems to have a TON of online components

For Honor, a game that was said to be playable offline, now requires a constant connection

For Honor will require a consistent internet connection to play. This isn't all that unique; plenty of games have this restriction. What is unique about it is the way Ubisoft has backpedaled on previous statements. A few months ago, Fo...   read
