Star Fox X Regular Show Tribute

[StarfooooooOOOHHHH by ガしガし] The fact that a new Star Fox game is set for release this year still feels a little surreal. Fan expectations are bound to be high, as the wait for this...

The original Doom gets a 'selfie support' fan mod

When Doom was first released, at least one person I knew was confused by it. "Where the heck am I? I don't see anyone here at all!" they squawked. "You are the player." 16-year-old me retorted brassily "You have to go around...

Samus and Sagat take on their greatest opponent  photo
Samus and Sagat take on their greatest opponent
by Jonathan Holmes

Like the initial entry of any epic trilogy, the first two episodes of Samus and Sagat worked to establish the characters. Now that we're finally into act two of the story, we can start moving into the real meat of this drama. You could consider this episode to be the Samus and Sagat equivalent to Spider-Man 2. Watch as our heroes rise up from self doubt to battle their greatest foe!

While you're at it, subscribe to our Youtube channel if you're a regular reader of our front page who enjoys our video content. For better or worse, many of our current Youtube subscribers don't seem to know that Dtoid is also a videogame website. Many of them have been awful confused since Max has moved on and more of our front page editors have moved in to the video production side of Dtoid. As always, the more you watch and share the Dtoid videos that you enjoy, the more of those videos we'll be able to make. We can't do it without your help.

Also, congratulations to Patty for winning our gif contest! You done good.

Sheik and Toon Link amiibo wish you a happy Valentine's Day photo
Sheik and Toon Link amiibo wish you a happy Valentine's Day
by Jonathan Holmes

Valentine's Day makes most people I know feel uncomfortable. The modern concept of the holiday has been designed around taking heartfelt expressions of attention/appreciation/affection and packaging them into rote, uniform little bundles of "love." Already sounds kind of like amiibo, doesn't it? In fact, one might say that amiibo are the chalky, heart shaped, "B Mine" and "I Wuv U" candies of the Nintendo world. If collecting videogames is like collecting love letters, then every amiibo is like an individual sext from a stranger who may actually be a tweetbot.

If none of that made any sense to you, don't worry. All you need to know is in this music video. Here you will find all of the fake plastic love and bizarre sexual bravado that you normally get from Valentine's Day, but in amiibo form. That I can tell you for certain. What I can't tell you for certain is what Toon Link is doing to Link's butt at the end of the song. Feel free to enlighten me in the comments. 

Thanks to Josh Grilli for helping me track down that darn Sheik amiibo.

Beard View: Yo-Kai Watch

I was worried about Yo-Kai Watch when it was first announced. Putting out a manga, anime and game series all in one fell swoop is no small financial undertaking. Given that Level-5 isn't a multi-billion dollar outfit, they h...

Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II photo
Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II
by Jonathan Holmes

[Update: We've gotten a lot of great entries in the gif contest! It seemed a shame to leave them out in the cold, so I've embedded the animations that never made it to the comments into the post below. I also forgot to tell you when the contest would be over. We'll stop taking entries whenever the next episode of Samus and Sagat comes out, which with any luck will be just in time for Valentine's Day. And yes, we have something special planned for that weekend. Just you wait.]

A lot of you told me that you really liked Samus and Sagat episode one. Thank you so much! Even more of you told me that you almost didn't watch the show at all because you thought it was a cartoon. Sorry about that!

To be 100% clear, Samus and Sagat is a live-action fake sitcom about Metroid's Samus Aran (Maddy Myers) and Street Fighter's Sagat (me) living as roommates. That said, we try to incorporate animation into things when we can.

Luckily, we had a really good excuse to use some fake videogame graphics in this episode. This one is about the differences between being a videogame starlet and an older, well known but not particularly popular side character from an ensemble cast. Imagine a conversation between Chun-Li and Waluigi about where their careers are going. It's like that. 

Crap, now I wish I had made that show instead. Maybe next time.

#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets photo
#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets
by Jonathan Holmes

As a youth, I became temporarily obsessed with an early Rare title for the NES called Taboo. It was a simple fortune telling game that used virtual Tarot cards to predict your future, but it inspired a deep level of fascination within me and my friends. If this game existed, it must have some purpose, right? There must be some meaning we could squeeze out of it, some understanding that we could eke out of its code. If there was method to its madness, and we could come to understand that method, maybe we would understand what adults thought was important, and then figure out a way to outsmart them forever. 

That lasted about a week before we gave up. If we had something like #Fortune back then, we may have never given up. #Fortune's creator Zach Gage (SpellTower, Ridiculous Fishing) probably knows what I mean. He's been playing the game himself since 2013, when it first manifested as physical instillation piece. It was a follow up to Best Day Ever, a bot account that Gage had designed in 2009 to aggregate pure positivity from Twitter. #Fortune was also a bot, but instead of positivity, it worked to use Twitter to predict your future.

What appears to be a random set of daily message at may start to reveal some interconnected meaning over time, or it just might make you laugh to read a distorted picture of your future as crafted by your present online persona. As Gage puts it "Who we are online is often a carefully crafted version of who we want to be. Tweets might be like mantras, tiny self-fulfilling prophesies... Or they might just be little lies we tell ourselves. #Fortune is both."

#Fortune is free on iOS
