What's going on with that radio?
Western horror, Eastern eyes. That was what made Silent Hill memorable for a generation. It was visceral and relentless, oppressive and paranoid, and underlined with a tragic tale that hadn’t been seen on the normally e...
Soon in America, not so much in Europe
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is penciled in for an August 4 launch in North America, Atlus has announced. Oh, and Europe will (predictably) have to wait until February 12, 2016.
The dungeon crawler is an enhance...
Triforce of Love
Break out the tissues as you watch the above video of a couple of Zelda fanatics getting married in a GameStop while tears stream down the groom's face. The couple met in that very store during a Mario Kart tournament. The r...
They'll never bury me in my robot
I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of in my life. I've made a lot of mistakes, missed some opportunities that still feel like a cavity in my heart, know that I've done wrong. But if I'm being honest? My number one regret...
So good I almost had a heart attack
Darkest Dungeon is my jam. I've been playing the hell out of the early access build and while I've had an absolute blast, I was reaching the bottom of the barrel in terms of current content. So it should come as no surprise t...
Push the truck and get a Mew!
There is a rumor getting posted on basically every gaming website saying Microsoft is buying Silent Hills from Konami for billions of dollars, and it sounds like complete bullshit.
An anonymous source has told Rooster Teeth's...
Go back to space!
Everyone knows about Earth Defense Force 2017. For many of us, it was our first introduction to Sandlot's series of campy shooters, which involves saving the world from giant alien bugs.
But that isn't where EDF got its star...
More Vita love from XSEED
Corpse Party: Blood Drive, the third chapter in Team GrisGris and 5pb.'s horror series, is on its way to North America, XSEED Games announced today.
Unlike the original game and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Blood...
RIP green screen?
Newstoid is back, and this time with no green screen! We heard your cries of "your heads look weird" and "get rid of that fucking green screen" and we listened. Is this better? We are thinking of getting a small piece of gre...
Sweep the leg
So, Dragon's Dogma Online isn't ideal for a number of reasons -- it's supported by microtransactions and isn't even planned for release in the West, for starters -- but it is more Dragon's Dogma, and damn if it doesn't at least look cool. Especially the creature designs.
After perusing the game's site, I saw this devilish beauty. Zulu, they call him.
Zoom in. His expression is priceless.
Is it finally happening?
Whether it's just another broken promise or an additional carrot on the end of the PlayStation Plus stick, the developers of Driveclub have announced that come June 1 the servers for the game will be replaced and upgraded as ...
Available during random time frames
[Update: it's happening right now. Good luck!]
Amazon has announced its plans for Super Smash Bros. Wave 4 and Splatoon amiibo, just under 24 hours from release on June 29. The company shared a list of time windows for w...
June 2015 on steam
First on the 3DS, then the Wii U, Mighty Switch Force! is an amazing puzzle-platformer that I'd recommend to anyone -- especially on a Steam sale.
Wait, Steam sale? Yep, WayForward has announced that next month, the Hyper Drive Edition of the game (which includes more levels and a sharper visual style, albeit sans-3D) will arrive on Steam. I'm in!
Coming Soon to STEAM! [WayForward]
Microsoft looking to capitalize
Everyone knows that E3 is the crème de la crème of shows for publishers. They want to put their best foot forward, as it's the biggest event of the year for them. That's especially true for platform-ho...
Game with the Dtoid Community!
The things happening at MIT are scary. Above is a picture from their robotics lab, and have you heard about the cheetah? Way to create our own destruction folks. Fucking hell. Moving along from our imminent doom, how is every...
Who doesn't like The Shawshank Redemption? It's one of those films where the mere mention of it will light up a room -- before you get to chatting about some of the more somber parts, of course. Thanks to CineFix, you c...
Go for it
D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die was awesome on Xbox One, and it's looking awesome on PC. You can try it out starting today by way of a demo, which is up now on Access Games' official Japanese site. It looks like the English ve...
17 straight minutes of Bison
Capcom UK has a series called "The World Warriors," where they discuss the background of a Street Fighter character, and delve into some pretty neat info. You'll find out where M. Bison came from design-wise, and little...
That's one for every Robin made
The highly anticipated fourth wave of amiibo figures hit stores today and by all accounts sold out within a matter of minutes. This should be good news for Nintendo, but sources within the struggling video game company say ma...
CD Projekt RED says to keep playing
Players have encountered a glitch in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that's preventing them from earning experience points from certain quests. CD Projekt RED says it will resolve the issue "as soon as possible across all platforms ...
Hopefully they'll stay that way
Splatoon is finally here. There's been quite a bit of community buzz regarding the game, and in my view, it turned out to be a pretty great shooter despite the fact that it's a bit light on content at launch.
The really ...
All but confirmed now
As if yesterday's rumor that Microsoft is set to reveal an improved Xbox One controller in June wasn't substantiated enough, we have an international retailer to help back everything up. Bless those international retailers; t...
Releasing this September for PC and PS4
A series of live-action videos and an alternate-reality game have led to this: 12 minutes of uncut footage from Frictional's next first-person horror title, SOMA. It's coming to PC and PS4 at long last on September 22, 2015....
Octopus, I love you
Happy Splatoon Day, everyone! With the release of Nintendo's new squid-based cooperative shooter, it only seems appropriate to celebrate by taking a look at some of the great cephalopod video game characters out there.
Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will arrive next month on 3DS and Vita in the west, but they won't be bringing along a really cool piece of content on the former platform -- Nintendo costumes. In the original Jap...
If you've been itching for a new champion in League of Legends, Ekko has arrived. He's' described as the "Boy Who Shattered Time." He's an assasin, and his abilities include the power to stack resonance on enemies after hitt...
Look, Jurassic Park people. Just because you have this wrapped up in a Lego veneer doesn't mean the outcome's going to be any different. We've all seen the movies. Why should we expect vicious dinosaurs won't attack this time?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I never should've watched Jurassic Park III.
From pixel to hero
I've always been fascinated by games that tackle evolution. Not necessarily the scientific principle, but the mechanic -- though a few titles like the brilliant E.V.O.: Search for Eden have managed to address both.
Adventures of Pip which features a tiny pixel that turns into a real boy, and then a hero, isn't quite as groundbreaking, but it's still fun to play.
Today, Wave 4 of the amiibo shopping "experience" begins. We already assumed it was going to be hell on earth based on the pre-order process, and it turned out to be fairly uninspiring all around as shops opened across the US...
