The e-Reader was the worst peripheral ever

The e-Reader was a card reading device for the Game Boy Advance that would allow you to add extra content to specific games with cards that had special digital codes. It was also complete bullsh*t. You see, Super Mario Advan...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Golden Sun series

Yes, I know. Calling Golden Sun a series is a little laughable, but this RPG tournament qualification process is all about including every game the Dtoid Army demands, and the Golden Sun games were high on that list. In last ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Pokemon series!

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! The Legend of Zelda

Good gaming gods, last week's debate was epic, and I do not use that word lightly. I had to go through all 235 comments twice, just to make sure no tallying mistakes were made. The outcome broke almost every debate record ima...

Rumortoid: DSi to get Gameboy, GBA downloads

Remember when Microsoft stopped providing updates to the Xbox 360 that allowed it to play old Xbox games, then "coincidentally" launched its downloadable Xbox Classics? It's an obvious trick, but it's one that works...
