At least it's not another DBZ game
A big part of the fun of doing this column is discovering old games I've never heard of and trying to figure out why they've been forgotten. Sometimes it's because they are terrible, unplayable messes. Other times it's becaus...
Everything is better with bears
What's better than throwing giant axes in your enemy's face? Throwing giant axes in your enemy's face while a huge freaking bear mauls them to death.
Rexxar will join the Heroes of the Storm roster next week on the 8th and he...
Will this crazy idea work? Probably!
While chucking a bunch of knocked-out soldiers into the back of a truck and then air lifting the vehicle (and most of them!) to your base in one fell swoop isn't practical given the setup time, the fact that you can is weird and wonderful. I just got the Fulton upgrade needed to do this, too.
Plenty more fun one-off videos yet to come, I'd imagine.
Also a pissing penguin
I've got my grubby hands on an early copy of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance for PS4 and decided to snap some screenshots -- which oddly get watermarked automatically -- while I do what I've done with every game in...
Game with the Dtoid Community!
Things are a bit light this week, eh? I'm guessing everyone is enjoying some MGSV? Maybe a few getting down with Mad Max? Beans of coolness. As always, if you get the bug to play with some real people (Eww), sign up in the co...
Releasing September 9, 2015
I like Castle Crashers a lot, but I wasn't planning on nabbing the remaster for Xbox One. Now I am.
Castle Crashers Remastered releases on September 9, 2015. If you own the original game for Xbox 360 and have an active Xbox L...
Why is the 1TB PS4 not sold in the US?
With Uncharted 4 pushed into 2016, the Nathan Drake Collection needs to prop up as pulp adventure tent poles. Sony would have you think these beams are appropriate substitutes, going so far as to bundle a (500GB, since Sony d...
Call in reinforcements
Spoilers? I don't know. Other than, "you encounter Quiet at some point." Everything's a spoiler these days. Anyways, I think I've written enough you won't accidentally read something you don't want to on the front page. I am ...
In Super Mario Maker, of course
One week from today, I'll get to relive Gnat Attack. The chaotic fly-swatting mini-game from Mario Paint lives on in Super Mario Maker, and I can't express how happy that makes me.
It's not too surprising that this and other ...
Of Rogue Warrior fame
I'm sorry, how did I miss this? All of this. Let me step back.
Jim DeFelice co-wrote the book American Sniper with the titular American sniper and Scott McEwen. This later spawned an unfortunate Oscar-bait film that made ins...
RNG and music bugs fixed
A pair of nasty-sounding bugs have kept some fans from picking up Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 4, but they're finally fixed as of an update this week. You're good to go.
One of the issues involved random nu...
I'm every genre, it's all in me
Real-time RPG, turn-based RPG, tactical RPG, hack and slash, bullet hell, beat-'em-up, rhythm, side-scrolling shooter, fighter, puzzler, platformer, Metroidvania, and more: Evoland 2 takes basically every classic genre a...
I like the art!
We're a couple weeks out from Tokyo Game Show and pre-show news is starting to slip in.
Bandai Namco, which I'm only now realizing I've gotten used to calling "Bandai Namco" after years of typing "Namco Bandai," has opened a teaser website for a new game titled City Shrouded in Shadow "Granzella." The lone image depicts a horse, a sword, and a castle.
What's in that castle? Nothing good, I'm sure.
A mathematical analysis
When I started playing Pokémon Shuffle Mobile earlier this week, I noticed a weird discrepancy between it and the 3DS version. When the option to use a Great Ball came up, it was asking for 3500 coins, up 40% from 2500...
Pretty fly for a Pikachu
Starting tomorrow, Japan will kick off a Pokemon Halloween Parade event. At participating Pokemon Center affiliates and online, you'll be able to buy spooky merch, most of which features Pikachu.
You'll find such items as the...
Everything else is metal as hell
One glance at Wolf Brew Games' Slain! and it's immediately obvious where it draws inspiration from. This is hack-and-slash action from the '80s and '90s that takes no prisoners in its violent pursuit. The gore-fille...
In many respects, Hatsune Miku symbolizes my interest in Japan. It doesn't matter how much I learn about the virtual pop star or the amazing/bizarre subculture that has taken root around her; it's tough to imagine ever truly ...
It wasn't looking good previously
Last we heard, Freedom Planet was delayed indefinitely thanks to a major issue with the Wii U code. Thankfully, developer GalaxyTrail has found the problem, confirming the progress to Nintendo Life.
According to the devs...
Pros and cons
After about my 50th hour into Pokémon Shuffle for the 3DS, I regretted getting into it late. When it released, I did what most people do when they hear "free-to-play;" I tuned it out without giving it a second thought....
HAL needed to sign off on Kirby
It's still weird to me that Bowser and Donkey Kong are appearing in the new Skylanders game, as part-amiibo nonetheless. Still, Nintendo has always bragged for years on end how they host the best Skylanders sales and hav...
Having played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for roughly 100 hours, I think I'm ready to make an assessment of it in terms of how it relates to the rest of the franchise. While it's definitely up there, it's far fr...
Uh, get on that Nintendo
The official site for Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is up, and it has a few extra details regarding the release, as well as new screens and a video. Other details have come out, like the fact that it's 1GB in size, and featu...
The Xbox One switched wallets
As most of you are aware of by now, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has some online features in the form of PVP invasion and Mother Base FOB construction. These require you to be online, and require that the servers...
Bungie offers preview of Crucible modes and maps
Destiny players will be able to access a taste of the upcoming expansion, The Taken King, for free next week.
Bungie confirmed that while you won't be able to test out any new super abilities or increase the level 34 cap...
Guinness shares the latest gaming records
Edit: Can't get the images to display for some reason - sorry! :( Have removed them for now, but will pop them back in as soon as I can.
The latest edition of Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition shares a heap of new ...
Threepwood shall rise once more... maybe
Monkey Island is a pretty major series in the history of adventure games. Famed for its humour, story, and setting, the series later received an absolutely gorgeous set of remakes. I know countless people who’ve been in...
Halfway to how it should've been!
Oh Arkham Knight, you were a trainwreck and a half, weren’t you? When it released on PC a few months ago, it was slammed for it’s terrible performance, bugs, and overall rushed production. The game was pulled from...
Play with me, maybe
I write about Killing Floor 2 perhaps too often, but considering it's the main game I play whenever I have free time, my eyes are always searching for relevant news. If my raving about it hasn't been enough to convi...
Paging Mr. Ponce to the comment section
Since Super Mario Bros. first hit screens in 1993, filmmakers have been trying to bring the imaginative worlds from video games to the silver screen. Whether they’ve been successful at doing so or not depends on whom yo...
A new adventure from Runic Games
Zelda. Ico. Shadow of the Colossus. Even a little Metroid.
Runic Games has borrowed concepts from these iconic adventures for its next PC and console game, Hob. Why "Hob?" Well, the name has a dual meaning that refers to litt...
