Bayonetta headlines August's Games with Gold selection

For a couple of months now, the selection of Games with Gold titles hasn't been too hot. Microsoft had continuously outdone Sony's choices on PS Plus for awhile, but then Sony seemed to pick things up and provide something other than obscur...

Does Kingdom Hearts III compare to the original Toy Story?

Last week at the D23 Expo, we got an extended look at one of the new worlds coming to Kingdom Hearts III. Much to a lot of people's surprise, the game will feature a level based around Toy Story, famous for being the first full length CGI f...

Xbox users will soon be able to gift games to one another

I've heard people say we have a bias against Xbox. But it couldn't be further from the truth; behind the scenes in the wacky Mad Magazine like halls of Destructoid, Xbox One is spoken pretty fondly of. (Heh, it worked, the fools, they will ...

Project CARS 2 certainly has a bunch of cars

I can't say I'm much of a car guy, but I always find it fascinating to read through the car lists for racing games. Its cool trying to spot the models I actually might know about and then balking at omissions from the roster. Looking over t...

You're lost without this Rock Band 4 DLC

With how popular Ghost became to the Metal scene in such a short span, its hard to imagine they weren't already featured in Rock Band 4. I mean, we've got heavier acts like Opeth and Nevermore, but not Ghost? That blasphemy is about to be r...

The Xbox Game Pass library grows a little bigger this weekend

Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service was (and hopefully continues to be) a pleasant surprise. For $10 a month, it gives you access to 100+ games. Some are Xbox One titles, others are backward-compatible Xbox 360 games, and inste...

Xbox One avatars are getting an extreme makeover

State of Decay 2 is the game I wanted the original to be

State of Decay was one of those games that quickly had me wishing for a sequel. Undead Labs was onto something with its base-building undead-survival title. The idea? Terrific. Roaming for food and ammo, picking up survivors, building out a...

E3 2017 press conference and stream schedule

E3 is going to be a bit different this year. With a few big companies winding down their presence, the ESA is winding up their attendance numbers with public entry. But unlike (the bigger) Tokyo Game Show that has press and public days...

Super Lucky's Tale is one delightful 3D platformer

I would call Super Lucky's Tale a pleasant surprise -- and for some, especially those who missed the original game on Oculus Rift, it will be -- but I came in expecting a charming, well-polished 3D platformer with a cute little protagonist....
