PlayStation Plus is starting 2017 off right

No, Sony isn't kicking off the new year with crazy first-party picks for PlayStation Plus members, but January's game lineup does have a few notable inclusions. What really makes this a solid month, I think, is the well-rounded Cross-Buy su...   read

Watch the Gravity Rush 2 anime free on YouTube

At this point, I'm fully ready for Gravity Rush 2. I've played the demo multiple times (it's pretty rad), I've replayed the first game on PS4 and all of its DLC, and I've watched the Overture anime. You can do that latter bit in a hot secon...   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

Destructoid's award for Best Vita Game of 2016 goes to...

The Zero Escape series came out of nowhere in 2009 on the original DS, and captivated people enough to actually cement it as a real franchise. Fans clamored for years, and eventually, we got Virtue's Last Reward in 2012. Ages of clamoring a...   read

Business meetings are super awkward at Sega Europe

Nothing screams the holidays like trading business cards. Wait, that can't be right... why would Sega PR lie to me? Either way, this new promo trailer for Yakuza 0 is high on the cringe factor and loaded with shots of that lovely business c...   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

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Vita Game of 2016

School Girl Zombie Hunter English trailer suggests localization, but is absolutely NSFW
