  1. Surprisingly, Outlast 2 is now clear for release in Australia

    03.24 / 02:34 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Last week, the upcoming horror game Outlast 2 was refused classification in Australia, meaning it was barred from sale in the country -- even to legal adults. But as of now, the Australian Classification Board has gone back on its decision and settled on an R18+ rating for the title. Even more surprising: developer Red Barrels didn't need to alter Outlast 2 to achieve this classification. As it now stands, the April 26, 2017 release is back on for Australia. "There will be only one…
  2. EA's doing its 'we're not at E3 but we're totally at E3' thing again this year

    03.24 / 01:28 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Electronic Arts pulled out of E3 last year and that, along with Activision doing the same, caused a panic. "E3 is dead!" everyone proclaimed in their spiciest meatballiest takes. How could the most important video game show survive if some of the most important video game makers refused to show up? E3 2016 came and went and it mostly felt like every other recent E3. EA was E3-adjacent with a large presence just outside the convention center. It seemingly worked out fine because EA has…
  3. Review: Little Inferno (Switch)

    03.24 / 00:19 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    The rise of Facebook in the late '00s shifted how people use the internet. With the gradual shift away from simply being a networking site, game developers were given a new platform to create games on. Sadly, most of these developers (*cough* Zynga *cough*) made small Skinner Box games to sucker people out of their hard-earned money. Many of these titles had a cute or interesting appeal, but they slowly become a boring slog of waiting out cool-down timers or paying to expedite the…

  5. First kiss: Dear Esther

    03.24 / 00:19 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    [My dearest community, it has been several fortnights since I last promoted to you. I long for the days when I may see you again, but the war rages on and I'm afraid Breath of the Wild and NieR: Automata just won't play themselves. Thankfully, soldiers like Flegma continue on with their thoughts on their first experiences, such as with Dear Esther. Sincerely, Sergeant Strider] Dear Esther, It has been three months since we last met, and I already miss you. Do you remember? We…
  6. Come at me, bro (with questions for Podtoid)

    03.23 / 23:03 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Sometimes I like to get long-winded with these posts, but not today! Nope, I'm going to save my breath for Podtoid when I get to talk to my BFFs Steven and Darren. Us three chuckleheads should have a lot to discuss like Mass Effect and how the pizza Darren eats in Mississippi is very cheap but also not very good. We can't do it alone, though. We need some content from you. What burning questions are on your mind? What's the longest sitting we've ever burned through a game? Why…
  7. There's a new Fortune Street arriving this year, and it has Final Fantasy's Lightning

    03.23 / 23:03 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    I completely forgot about the new Fortune Street game, announced back in September of last year. It's a 30th anniversary celebration of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest for both PS4 and Vita, and a ton of characters are coming along for the ride. Just this week Minifillia (FFXIV), Balther (XII), Squall (VIII), and Lightning (XIII) were confirmed, as well as Erinn, Carver, Jessica Albert, and Angelo from the Dragon Quest side. There's no set release date yet but the team seems far enough…
  8. Serial Cleaner makes hiding bodies fun

    03.23 / 21:56 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    Murder is messy. Think about it; dropping even a single body means a pool of blood, evidence, and potential witnesses. To get away with murder, you have to either think quick or know someone willing to get their hands dirty. In Serial Cleaner, that's where you come in. Read…
  9. The Walking Dead: A New Frontier's third episode lands on March 28

    03.23 / 21:56 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    We're approaching the three-episode mark for Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and that has me feeling particularly anxious for this series to wrap up so I can get on with the binge session already. The third episode, Above the Law, suggests that with tensions ever rising, "It may be time to choose between the family you're born into and the family you've made..." Decisions, decisions. If you're playing these as they come out, Tuesday's the day on PC, PS4, Xbox One,…
  10. Try to find the most enticing game in April's Xbox Games with Gold

    03.23 / 21:56 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    April is a solid month for Xbox's Games with Gold program, but not in the way it usually is. Typically, of the four free titles, there are one or two standouts that makes the whole month a success. That's not quite what's happening here. Instead, April has four games that draw some degree of enthusiasm, just not an overwhelming amount. That's fine though! These services don't always need to all bangerz. Sometimes they do just as well to offer titles that you're interested in but…
  11. Titanfall 2's next update marks the return of Colony

    03.23 / 21:56 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    A week from now, you should think about popping Titanfall 2 back in -- even if only for a few rounds. Respawn Entertainment is bringing out Colony Reborn, based on the dense town center map from the original game, as well as the R-101 with an ACOG scope and a nasty "curb check" execution. That's all coming for free next Friday, along with some paid Titan cosmetics for Northstar and Legion. Whenever I see trailers like this for multiplayer games, I count my sweet blessings that…
  12. See how Snake Pass got its slithering movements just right

    03.23 / 19:45 destructoid.com Destructoid.com - Games
    "The best way to get a snake to look like a snake is to find someone who's owned a snake." The thing that first drew me to Snake Pass was the curious fact that its creator, Seb Liese, used to be a biology teacher. Now Sumo Digital is talking shop about how one might convincingly achieve snake movements in a video game (divide that sucker into spheres), and I'm drawn right back in. Lastly -- and this just can't be stressed enough -- the snake's name is Noodle.…
