Rift's latest update is the biggest one since launch

Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting players back, b...

Signing up to see an unannounced title at a gaming convention or expo can be risky. I've never been burned before, but I'm aware my streak could end in an instant. I went into my PAX appointment with Trion Worlds (Rift, Defiance) worried --...

To me, Defiance always looked like one of those games I'd probably enjoy a lot more if I didn't have to pay a monthly fee for it. The show didn't strike me as too great, but I figured I'd give the game a go if it ever went down in price or ...

End of Nations has been turned into a MOBA

Remember End of Nations? It was that awesome looking free-to-play real time strategy game from Trion and it was something I was really looking forward to. The huge sense of scale and battles looked actually exciting. The game sort of went i...

NPD: Injustice and Dead Island lead sales in April

[DC zombie sculpts by Casey Love Designs] The NPD Group released US sales data for April 2013 two days ago, but a complete lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Destructoid staff has delayed our posting it. Not our fault! Look at the inform...

Impressions: Defiance

Please pardon the lazy portmanteau, but Defiance has sapped me of a great deal of my creativity. I'm tired, friends. The new MMO -- that's desperately trying not to be an MMO -- from Trion Worlds has toyed with me for the last two week...

NeoTurbo’s blog on video game shotguns makes me want to craft Nergigante’s heavy bowgun and just invest in a giant shotgun What’s better in nature then walking up to a monster to put an enormous shotgun down their mouth?
