Dinosaurs are on the short list of good things. They go, in order: Back massages, dinosaurs, astronauts. That's it. That's comprehensive. You have a fine opportunity to close 2020 with dinosaurs, to begin the new year with di...   read

  Watch Video With the most matter-of-fact teases, Devolver has told us that it has a lot up its sleeve next year. That's it. That's the post, there's not really any more information. Okay, there's a bit more. Devolver plans to launch five games in 2021 that aren't yet announced:   read

Respawn Entertainment is keeping busy as of late. As it should be! This is a studio that has proven itself time and time again in recent years, cementing itself as one of EA's most valuable development teams thanks to the suc...   read

Make sure you're sitting down for this news: The PlayStation 5 is off to a tremendous start. This probably won't take you by surprise; it was nearly impossible to find a PS5 (or Xbox Series X for that matter) anytime around l...   read

  Watch Video If I were stuck on a desert island, I'd simply curl up and wait to die. Dehydration, starvation, extreme sunburn -- unlike Destiny's Child, I am not a survivor. I probably wouldn't even get the TV hooked up to watch my three...   read

This year was mostly bad for everyone -- and that's a thing that's usually said very hyperbolically because a couple celebrities died or whatever, but in 2020 it feels appropriate for once -- but it wasn't without its silver ...   read

As the saying goes: Where there's a will, there's a wisp. And as the other saying goes: Where there's an Ori, there's excellence. Maybe neither of those are quite household phrases, but the latter is undeniable. A full five y...   read

Tencent, a stupidly massive Chinese conglomerate, got a little bigger recently. It added Leyou's assets to its portfolio thanks to a new acquisition. Leyou likely isn't a name you recognize, but some of its studios will ring ...   read

  Watch Video Random things falling from the sky. NPCs walking straight into walls. The physics going bananas and suddenly killing you out of nowhere. It's the full-blown Cyberpunk 2077 experience! It looks...older, though. YouTuber ...   read

Ten years ago, the year 2033 seemed very far away and the idea of an impending apocalyptic collapse of civilization seemed far-fetched. Now, only 12 years away and with a global life-changing virus under our belt, it's not so...   read

Don't cry for CD Projekt Red. Even with everything that's going on over there, the dollars and cents still work out. That's what's going to ultimately matter. CD Projekt Red released a disclosure for investors today...   read

  Watch Video Xbox has sputtered and come up short with Games with Gold for most of 2020. That's an unfortunate byproduct of Xbox Game Pass being so well-rounded. Having so many titles on Game Pass means that Games with Gold suffers ...   read

Teamwork makes the dream work, but it also cuts your take into fractions. The lone wolves of GTA Online don't always want to carry out big tasks as a group. They'd rather take the spoils all for themselves. A lot more ri...   read

Alien: Isolation is basically Home Alone if you really think about it. A bunch of people live on the Sevastopol Space Station, so it's their home. Ripley is alone, in isolation if you will. It all checks out. Alien:...   read

Odd world? You're preachin' to the choir, buddy! Ain't nothin' normal about it! Oh, the video game? Yeah, sure. Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is free today on the Epic Games Store. It's numero dos out of 15 Epic freebies comin...   read

You already look stylish when you're slicing and dicing in Ghost of Tsushima, doubly so when you're hacking away in black-and-white mode. Add to the aesthetic by infusing your samurai warrior with Kratos, just as Kurosawa int...   read

  Watch Video Late last night, Sony made a massive unprecedented business decision. It pulled the trigger on offering full refunds for anyone who bought Cyberpunk 2077 through the PlayStation Store. That might happen with some low-pro...   read

  Watch Video Halloween isn't just a day, it's a way of life. It's 365 and one more on Leap Years. That means when Christmas rolls around, it's also Halloween. Pumpkin Jack is all about that life. Eight days from Christmas, this jack...   read

  Watch Video A couple days ago, news that Among Us is coming to Switch led Chris to wonder aloud "Why not put it on everything at this point?" That timing's pretty sus, bud. On cue, Among Us is getting ported to other consoles. Microsoft has revealed that it's coming to Xbox and will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch:   read

Fortunately, digital files don't take up any room in the stocking. Otherwise, that thing would be stuffed half a month from now. They only take up space on the hard drive. You're going to build an entire goddang city today. E...   read

Ubisoft caught a lot of flak for a time-saving microtransaction in Assassin's Creed Odyssey that permanently increased your XP rate by 50 percent. The problem is that a lot of people felt as though Odyssey's grind was sp...   read

Ummmm, yeahhhhhhh... If you haven't sworn off using GOG, there's some shekels to be saved in its winter sale. Something tells me CD Projekt will see lower conversion and revenue than usual with this sales event. I have a feel...   read

How are you at pitching? When you're a big-brained business type, you don't need to sell things. You just need to sell ideas. And they don't even have to be good ideas! You just have to make them sound good. Go ahead and pitc...   read

Assassin's Creed Valhalla just got its second major patch this morning, another much-needed Band-Aid as Ubisoft marches toward making this game function as intended. It really highlighted how long this is going to take. ...   read

  Watch Video It's a little sadist of Team Meat to make the masochists wait an extra month. But, I guess the masochists will appreciate that punishment. During last week's Game Awards, we found out that Super Meat Boy Forever is laun...   read

You've heard of game delays. Now let me introduce you to subscription service delays. In terms of sheer bulk, access to the whole EA Play library is a pretty good reason to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That partnersh...   read

Disclosure: One of my roles around here is "Guy who handles retail affiliate stuff." The "Deals" tag auto-populates a disclaimer message that links in these articles usually send a little money Destructoid's way so that Kyle can keep posting Gardevoir pictures. (Maybe those two aren't directly correlated, but I really wish they were.)
