Xbox One gets Max: The Curse of Brotherhood tomorrow

The more I think back to what I've played of Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, the more I want to try the platformer again. To best it. The game was unexpectedly challenging in a good way. It's getting something of a surprise release for Xbox ...

Marvel characters are coming to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Ed.

I don't know that I fully grasp the appeal of premium skins in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but I was never one to buy crap for my Avatar, either, so I'm clearly not the intended audience. If I were, however, these characters from the upcom...

Minecraft sells 10 million on Xbox 360, plus a DLC sale

Damn. 10 million copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition have been sold to date. I'd say the person responsible for initiating the deal that would eventually lead to this version coming about deserves a raise, or a pat on the back -- or somet...

You don't say: Super Time Force also coming to Xbox One

No, Xbox 360s haven't magically become irrelevant now that the Xbox One is out, but developers are starting to make the transition all the same. For a game like Super Time Force, it makes total sense that it would release across both syste...

Foul Play review photo

Review: Foul Play

Review: Final Exam

Eight years ago when Microsoft kicked off this generation with the Xbox 360, the concept of downloadable arcade titles on a home console was nothing more than a vision. With the Xbox 360 came the Xbox Live Arcade and one addictive title t...

This solo eggplant run in Spelunky is a must-watch

It's been some time since we've posted a Spelunky run on Destructoid but, I think you'll agree, this one is worth seeing. If you're familiar enough with the game to know about the eggplant -- it's earned by sacrificing a Mystery Box on an ...

Review: Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force

Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2. They were fantastic, diverse, and just as feature-rich as the other tables for the game. Many b...

Angry beards: CastleStorm coming to PS3, Vita

Vikings versus knights. That's the conceit of Zen Studios' CastleStorm, which our own Ian Bonds enjoyed well enough when it original launched on XBLA. It's a much more in-depth Angry Birds of sorts, with real-time strategy and tower defens...
