This, broadly speaking, has been a year of silver linings. It's the only way you can stay sane. If you focus exclusively on all the ways our lives have been upended in 2020, you'll doom and gloom yourself into sleeping 18 hou...   read

  Watch Video After Thanksgiving, I reported on the first big Assassin's Creed Valhalla update by saying "Lotta stuff is broke so there's a lotta stuff to fix." That's still true and it's going to remain true for the foreseeable ...   read

Oh, you thought PUBG was just a game about shooting dudes until either you're dead or 99 of them are dead? Wrong, idiot. It's a game where you have to investigate and expose nefarious corporations before you shoot 99 oth...   read

  Watch Video Can't wait to get monster huntin' on your Switch? Open season comes a couple months early, but for a limited time only. Capcom gave us a new look at Monster Hunter Rise at The Game Awards. It was accompanied by the announcement that it's getting a demo in January 2021. You'll be playing Monster Hunter Rise a lot earlier than you expected. Don't complain, that's good!   read

  Watch Video PC users have been at cruising altitude for months now. Xbox folks, well, the doors didn't close for an on-time departure. At The Game Awards, it was revealed that Microsoft Flight Simulator lands on consoles in the sum...   read

  Watch Video Those idiot Beans already slip and stumble around. Throwing a bunch of snow and ice on the ground isn't going to end well. It'll just end up as a bunch of frivolous slip-and-fall lawsuits. Fall Guys' Season 3 trailer is here...   read

  Watch Video If it feels like we've been waiting for years, well, it's because we have. But finally the veil has been pulled back. We have our first look at BioWare's new Dragon Age game. Simply called "Dragon Age," this official reveal ...   read

  Watch Video When I was a kid, I found every piece of cheese in Perfect Dark. Every level was hiding one wedge of cheese in it somewhere, usually very cleverly disguised. You didn't get anything for finding them. The game didn't even ack...   read

  Watch Video The second reveal at The Game Awards might end up being one of the most indescribable ones all night. The only way I can think to explain Tchia is through the lens of other games. Like, it has majestic open-world explor...   read

  Watch Video Tonight -- a night when people usually dress up all fancy and gather together for the most high-profile celebration of games -- won't see any tuxes or gowns or high heels or graphic tees underneath blazers. This year, which is the spiritual embodiment of wine in a can, will instead celebrate games from a racer-style chair with a bookshelf full of anime and Funko Pops behind it.   read

  Watch Video If I was a studio bigwig -- a promotion I've been passed over for many times now -- I would've been hesitant to greenlight a Sonic the Hedgehog series before 2020. Then, after the success of the movie, I would've tr...   read

Based on your perspective, this news tidbit kind of shifts around -- much like The Oldest House in a sense. In a year since launch, Control has gone on to become Remedy's fastest-growing property to-date. This comes out ...   read

The country roads have taken us home, but they also lead away from home. That's how paths work. They connect two points. That's an urban planning lesson and also a geometry lesson. Bethesda has plans for where those roads go....   read

You may be well aware, but in the unlikely event that you're somehow not: Cyberpunk 2077 releases tomorrow. Technically, that might only be a few hours from now if you're playing on PC, as there's a global launch that hi...   read

  Watch Video I don't know much about Call of the Sea but I instantly respect it for one reason: It's one of the few games that's willing to go head-to-head with Cyberpunk 2077. When most other publishers have turned tail and ran fro...   read

  Watch Video Gears 5 has gotten a steady cadence of multiplayer support ever since it launched in fall 2019. Next week, it gets something no Gears game has gotten since 2011: Singleplayer story DLC. We learned in October that T...   read

  Watch Video It has been a while since we've heard anything from David Cage's studio, Quantic Dream. After Detroit: Become Human in 2018, the developer has mostly been silent apart from some PC ports of games that were previously Pl...   read

  Watch Video With regard to events, the prefix pre- almost always indicates something is lesser-than. Are more people watching the Super Bowl or the Super Bowl Pre-Show? What's more interesting: Pre-loading your game or playing your ...   read

I am dismayed to report that the rats are better. I'm not exactly sure how they're better, but they're definitely better. Late last week, we got a press release that confirmed Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been optimized f...   read

It's the most excruciating week of the year for a games blogger, the week where the only stuff that qualifies as news is "Something might happen at The Game Awards." Thus, I am here again to tell you that something else might...   read

  Watch Video Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best Xbox games in years and it just keeps getting better. Playground Games has supported it far beyond the treatment these games usually get -- that might be a pleasant byproduct of being ...   read

  Watch Video No matter how dull The Game Awards end up Thursday night -- and who knows how this all-at-home version of the show will end up -- there's guaranteed to be at least a couple minutes of fireworks.

  Watch Video Things have gone from bad to worse, from unfortunate to bizarre, and from Kinda Suspect to Super Murdery. That's Dontnod's MO, and everyone should know it by now. The French developer loves examining personal relationships, a...   read

War never changes. Sometimes war gets stuck in traffic and shows up fashionably late. Activision has pushed back Black Ops Cold War's season one content drop from December 10 to December 16. There's good reason for the slight...   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.)
