Conception II is coming to Europe this May

Europe, I get so happy when I see you all being taken care of. You get shafted too often. Atlus has confirmed that Europe will see the release of Vita and 3DS RPG Conception II this May. A solid date has yet to be set, b...

Download No Heroes Allowed for free on PS Vita

The latest installment in Acquire's What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? franchise (formerly known as "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!") sadly isn't a dungeon strategy game like its quirky predecessors. But it still lo...

Tribute Games returns to pure arcade action in Curses 'N Chaos

In announcing that Mercenary Kings would hit PS Vita at PAX East, developer Tribute Games also briefly talked up Curses 'N Chaos, a game which sounded like a mighty good time based on the name alone. After watching this Jona...

New Vita, PS3 RPG from former Atlus devs coming soon

Rumor time. But this one is a good one, and likely a solid one. Something-something Dimension is all we have, thanks to a source that is holding off on full details, which are set to drop in a couple of days. But we do know t...

One more time: Dead Nation hits PS Vita later today

With Housemarque's 2010 top-down zombie shooter Dead Nation releasing on PlayStation 4 last month, I had wondered about the status of the long-promised but little-talked-about PS Vita port. It's still coming, we were assured....

Radicool skateboard game OlliOlli coming to PS3, PS4, PC in July photo
Radicool skateboard game OlliOlli coming to PS3, PS4, PC in July
by Steven Hansen

OlliOlli is a super fun little Vita game, but a lot of people won't buy a Vita because "it doesn't have any games" and they like to be wrong about things. If you're one of those people (or you don't have a Vita for a reasonable reason; for example, you live paycheck to paycheck barely making rent), rejoice.

OlliOlli is coming to PS3, PS4, and PC on July 22, Den of Geek reports. Now we can all be punk teens and skateboard against Godzillas and use shoelaces as belts.

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.

Yes! Rain World is coming to Vita, PSN

Last week we learned Adult Swim Games had picked up and planned to publish Rain World, among other cool games. I have been unfettered in my enthusiasm for Rain World, which stars a slugcat who goes around stabbing other weir...

Divekick Addition Edition+ will keep growing if you keep playing photo
Divekick Addition Edition+ will keep growing if you keep playing
by Jonathan Holmes

We've got about 30 videos from PAX East to show you soon, many of which (Mewgenics, Rain World, Shovel Knight, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Interstellar Selfie Station, Kero Blaster, La-Mulana 2) are already up on the Dtoid YouTube page, with so much more to come. Argh! So many games!

One of the more salacious interviews we scored was with Adam "Keits" Heart, creator of Divekick. He told us all about how Johnny Gat from Saints Row ended up in the upcoming release of Divekick Addition Edition+ and how he fights. Johnny's jump and divekick offer a balance of both offensive and defensive attributes that are rivaled only by Dive and Kick themselves. It's only when he starts throwing out specials that things get really wild. His black hole move is extremely versatile, and allows for a myriad of possible effects on a fight. It changes the way gravity works for both characters, creating a suction point that might help or hurt either fighter. His dubstep gun and car-hit-you attacks are a little more straightforward, but even they have more to them than you might have guessed. 

The biggest shocker was that Adam has pledged to keep adding new characters to the game for no additional cost to the player as long as people keep playing Divekick. While Adam's got plenty of work in front of him on designing new content for Killer Instinct, he's not going to let his first game go by the wayside as long as there is an audience there that wants to keep the game alive.

Who would you want to see join the cast of Divekick Addition Edition+? From what I hear, the gang at Yacht Club Games would love to see Shovel Knight join the cast. Hmmmmm...
