Holy crap, Overwatch sold out on Amazon

The last time something I wanted on Amazon was sold out, it was the behind-the-scenes book Hamilton: The Revolution, and even that was an understandable cultural flashpoint. It's Hamilton -- the musical you literally cannot escape! But I don't think I've ever seen a video game sell out through Amazon. Enter Overwatch. Show More Summary

Giveaway - The Huntsman: Winter's Curse (Steam)

Our fine friends at Desert Owl Games are giving you folks a chance to win copies of books 2 & 3, from their new game: The Huntsman: Winter's Curse (Book 1 is free here). The game is set in Universal Studio's Huntsman universe, and the...Show More Summary

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens actually has a reasonable season pass

Our disdain for season passes is well-documented around here. Too many publishers look to turn $60 worth of revenue into $100 by way of a $40 mystery season pass. We rarely know how the base game will end up, but consumers are routinely...Show More Summary

So how good is Pokemon, really?

[A lot of us have been in a very Pokémon mood lately. But are we being blinded by nostalgia and cute critters? Voltech wrote an Aerial Ace blog on the matter, go read it with ExtremeSpeed. ~ Shade] Not to start this off with a tangent,...Show More Summary

Origin's sitewide 30% off coupon means Sims 4 and Battlefront deals galore

The Origin store is running a site-wide 30 percent off promo code. Yay! But before you bust out the wallet for Battlefield 1 or Mirror's Edge Catalyst, think again. The discount is rather restrictive for a "site-wide" coupon. You won't...Show More Summary

See you at the party, Riktor!

Epic is introducing its newest Hero to Paragon, its MOBA currently in paid Early Access on PC and PS4 (new Heroes are free). There will be a Paragon open beta this summer. See you at the party! Read more...

Anew: The Distant Light has an alien world I want to explore

I'm going to have a heck of a time remembering its name, but Anew: The Distant Light is a curious one. It's a nonlinear action-exploration game from a pair of former BioWare and Volition developers set on an alien moon "twenty light years from Earth" that truly does look alien. Show More Summary

Square on the relief of knowing Final Fantasy XV is a true Final Fantasy

I am still enthralled by the stone cold stunner Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata dropped about 'Final Fantasy disease' and trying to whip that team into shape, coming on to helm the project that had been in development for around...Show More Summary

Celebrating #PutButtsInAVideoGameTitle

All day today, #PutButtsInAVideoGameTitle has been trending on Twitter. In celebration, we thought we would revisit some of our favourite video game butt reviews on the site. If you had not noticed, Destructoid are big fans of video game butt puns. Read more...

Cyberpunk 2077 won't be making it to E3

As much as we'd like to see more of Cyberpunk 2077 straight away, it's not going to happen so soon. As recently reiterated to Eurogamer, CD Projekt RED isn't bringing the game to E3 next month. "We still have a lot of work to do with...Show More Summary

Mighty No. 9 dev puts publisher Deep Silver on blast for latest trailer

Yesterday, Mighty No. 9 publisher Deep Silver released a "Masterclass" trailer to explain some of the game's combat systems. At time of writing, it has 1,732 upvotes and 13,720 downvotes. That is to say, it's not going over well. One...Show More Summary

Behind the scenes with the 3D technology of Mass Effect: New Earth

While the highlight of Mass Effect: New Earth was definitely getting a rim massage and being sprayed in the face by smelly bug juice, Destructoid also sent special correspondent Skate Allday to interview 3D LIVE's Nathan Huber aboutShow More Summary

Greetings from MomoCon 2016

I had never heard of MomoCon before (which is held in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center, the same city as Dragoncon, which I have heard of!), but that changes this week. As part of the Indie Game Award Showcase, myself and...Show More Summary

Best Buy's Xbox One clearance: Get a $75 gift card plus a free game

Perhaps driven by fear that sales will halt after E3 (new 4K Xbox maybe!?) retailers seem to be wanting to rid themselves of 2015 / early 2016 Xbox One bundles. Amazon and GameStop both have $50 gift card bonuses going on at the moment...Show More Summary

Absolver's tactical action hits all the right notes for me

Devolver Digital is coming into E3 in a few weeks with a couple of unannounced games. Absolver, an "online combat RPG" for PC and consoles, is one of them. Definitely watch the trailer to get a feel for how it flows. "Battles between...Show More Summary

Slayer is still a badass in this final Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator trailer

The next version of Guilty Gear Xrd, Revelator, is set to arrive on June 7 in the west, after location tests were held in Japan for nearly a year. It will once again feature PS3 and PS4 Cross-Play, as well as add Johnny, Jack-O, Jam, Kum Haehyun, Raven, and Dizzy to the game. Show More Summary

See the latest build of Mighty No. 9 tomorrow

All that can be said about Mighty No. 9 has probably been said already. We've all lived it together. The multiple delays, the apologies, the rough social campaign -- we've seen it all. Now, we're just waiting for the actual release, which is actually, probably, a really real date of June 21 (June 24 in Europe). Show More Summary

Mobile hit League of Evil is coming to PC and the eShop

Most people don't think of the mobile space as a legitimate bastion for great platformers, but they're definitely on there. One such game is League of Evil, which I spent many a night playing -- with its tricky double-jumps, interesting...Show More Summary

I forgot Ghost Recon Wildlands existed

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, revealed last year at Ubisoft's E3 conference, has become a distant memory for me. I completely forgot it existed until the publisher emailed us about a new trailer, at which point the key words all...Show More Summary

The Last Guardian is out in 2016, according to Edge Magazine

Holy hell that Last Guardian footage was something right? We all laughed, cried, and collectively became excited. Then it was delayed into oblivion, and put into development hell despite the fact that we were reassured every six months...Show More Summary
