    05.28 / 18:32 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    With this week's anniversary update, Overwatch overhauled its player vs. player elimination modes, adding three new maps and changing the rules for how matches will play out. The new rules are probably different than you're used to, so here's some things I noticed that might help you pick up a few more wins. Read…
  2. The Switch could outsell the Wii U by next year

    05.28 / 16:16 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It’s no argument the Nintendo Switch is a runaway success. It’s Nintendo’s fastest selling gaming system, it’s already produced two highly rated million selling titles, and everyone on the internet wants every game ever to come to the device. A real home run for Nintendo. Now if only the company could properly stock it. I have yet to see one on store shelves, but that will probably change in the coming months. According to the  Financial Times, people…
  3. New version of Steins;Gate in the works

    05.28 / 16:16 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the states, which means you probably shouldn’t expect a lot of gaming news out of American companies until Tuesday at the earliest. That means you also won’t be hearing much from games journalist as well, so sorry to the developer who sent out review codes with an embargo date of Monday. Lucky for us, gaming news continues to roll out of Japan and today, Mages. announced a new version of the popular Steins;Gate is coming. Titled…

  5. A Brutal Legend

    05.28 / 00:17 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Honestly it’s a bit weird to me I haven’t talked about this game yet-it’s a game that has a very special place in my blood pump and its one that came to me during that tumultuous time in most peoples lives where where they begin figuring out who they are: High school. I was first introduced to this game by a friend of mine in high school, who took it upon himself to loan me a PS3 copy of the game, a decision that would serve to introduce me to two things I would come…
  6. In defense of Roger Moore

    05.27 / 20:20 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    This week we heard the sad news that Roger Moore had passed away. If you're like me it hit you pretty hard, because if you're like me Roger Moore's James Bond is something you love. A lot of people are not like me. Most don't outright hate Moore's Bond, but he's often relegated to the position of hanger on when it comes to discussing Bond actors despite the fact that he was the most tenured. Almost no one ranks him as their favorite Bond, and most like to pile on his films even if they…

Rounding it up, we're seeing Dell Memorial Day Sale, Lenovo Memorial Day Sale, and HP Memorial Day Sale all offering pre-builts at reasonable and incentivizing pricing. After wading through the various Memorial Day sales from the top PC retailers we've come…

    05.27 / 15:24 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    If you've never tried Borderlands before, you are in luck as the franchise is throwing a big sale this month at digital retailer Green Man Gaming. Both Borderlands 1 and 2's Game of the Year Editions are on tap at less than $7 a piece for their PC Steam copy, with Borderlands 2: GOTY on sale for only $6.79 (a new low price). For even more Borderlands love, The Pre-Sequel is also on sale at $6.79, which is also the lowest we've seen this title. Funny enough, on the franchise sale page,…
  9. Monster Hunter XX Switch trailer drops, looks a lot like 3DS version

    05.27 / 04:50 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Gotta love these late night reveals. One day after it confirmed Monster Hunter XX will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, Capcom dropped its first trailer which you can watch below. Anyone expecting it to actually push the capabilities of the Switch might be disappointed to find the game doesn't look worlds better than the 3DS version. Graphics aside, I am digging it. The last time I really got into Monster Hunter was back on the Wii, so I've really only associated this series with the…
  10. The Global Testpunch left me feeling optimistic about Arms

    05.27 / 02:53 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    After an hour spent with Arms in tonight's limited-time, limited-content Global Testpunch demo, I'm feeling... pretty good about it? Yeah, I think so. Not over the moon, but good. Nintendo has come up with an accessible enough but still nuanced take on fighting/boxing games with tons of charm. Seriously, these characters rule, and that's going to have a substantial impact on its appeal as a new IP. After a few short matches, you'll know your personal favorite fighter and your loathed…
  11. Giant Uplay and Star Wars sales grace PC for the weekend

    05.27 / 01:02 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    WinGameStore, a digital retailer that sells Windows games (shocking), is running two big sales events this weekend from two major angles. In corner one, we have a flurry of Uplay titles, everything from Assassin's Creed and Far Cry to Heroes of Might and Magic. Most titles are priced reasonably, though we didn't spot too many historic low prices. The only titles at their lowest recorded price are the Deluxe Editions of select titles. Noteworthy though is Might and Magic Heroes VI Complete…
  12. Golf Story could be the RPG-style golf game we've been waiting for

    05.26 / 23:09 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    As an easy-on-the-eyes golf game for Nintendo Switch, Golf Story looks promising. But there's more to it than that, and I think that's how it'll be able to win over folks who aren't typically into sports games -- say, for example, people who were big into Mario Golf for Game Boy Color. Golf Story should scratch a very specific itch with everything surrounding the actual golfing. Or, as Ray said in our Slack, "I'm unironically gonna buy a Switch for a fucking golf game now…
  13. New Earth Defense Force 5 trailer shows off the EDF forces
