Hands On They Made Destruction AllStars on PS5 Good
Like, for real
When it released last year, Destruction AllStars ultimately disappointed.

It was hard to put into words,...

Tw!nkleR10t and Ultimo Barricado downsized
It's a shame, but it's impossible to deny that Destruction AllStars has been a somewhat failed experiment from Sony. The multiplayer vehicular action game has some good ideas, but ultimately doesn't seem to have caught on, even despite being available on PlayStation Plus for two months. That said, it looks...
