Beautiful Half-Life 3 troll greets gamescom attendees

Half-Life 3 is not confirmed, despite what you may see out of Germany. A giant, orange banner outside of gamescom reads, "Half-Life: 3" in large print. Beneath it lies arcane, inscrutable text (what the fuck is "redakteure"!?) that is meant...

Xbox's plans for gamescom don't include a press conference

In recent years, Microsoft has treated gamescom kind of like a second part to E3. Xbox would hold a press conference at the beginning of the week to announce new games and to give better looks at titles that hadn't yet come out. It very muc...

Destructoid's eight great games from gamescom 2015

Another year, another gamescom. The show wrapped up last weekend and both Brett and I are safely home in the United States of America, clutching out guns and dystopian healthcare, but we've loosed out iron grip just long enough to type out ...

Soul Axiom is looking good and weird

While I've known Soul Axiom to be a distinct game, the mix of games with Souls in the name and Axiom Verge this year has muddled my brain up. Soul Axiom is looking like it will muddle my brain up, too, from this surreal trailer. The upcomi...

Watch the Rise of the Tomb Raider gamescom demo

Brett caught up with (and previewed) Rise of the Tomb Raider at gamescom 2015 and what we saw didn't sound all that different from what I saw at E3 2015. Not too surprising this close to launch of a sequel that already has it's formula dow...

First hands-on with Ninja Theory's Hellblade

Ninja Theory has felt like a mercenary of late. Enslaved didn't sell as well as it should have (neither did Heavenly Sword), and so the last five years has been spent 1) making a mobile game for EA-owned publisher Chillingo, 2) trying to re...

Ori and the Blind Forest is getting an expansion

Ori and the Blind Forest is one of my favorite games on Xbox One. It looks, sounds, and plays magnificently. I'm surprised and delighted it even got made, and that goes double for its commercial success. The game was "already profitable a w...

The gamescom 2015 show floor gallery: Wish you were her!

It is the second day of gamescom and boy are my arms tired! On account of having flown to Germany a couple days ago, I mean. Phew. Saved it. God, look how haggard I look. Pasty, eyes dead, hair unkempt and thrown forward to address the whol...

Final Fantasy XV confirmed for 2016 release

Final Fantasy XV's lengthy development time has been long documented. Square Enix's promised strong showing for the next mainline entry this gamescom amounted to a fairly boring trailer, doing nothing to reassure anyone that this game is ac...

These are the next three Heroes of the Storm

I don't think I'll stray far from Valla (especially now that I have her Master Skin), but I have been stockpiling gold for another Diablo character in Heroes of the Storm -- Kharazim, Monk of Ivgorod. At gamescom, Blizzard opened up about t...

Sam Lake explains Quantum Break's television show tie-in

It's been over two years since I first side-eyed Quantum Break, the television show and third-person shooter hybrid from Remedy (Alan Wake, Max Payne). Quantum Break finally has a release date it probably won't be delayed out of (April 5, 2...
