How not to survive in Alien: Isolation

From everything I've heard of Alien: Isolation, it's best not to run around when you think the coast is clear much less when the Xenomorph is right there in the same room. See: the trailer above. Creative Assembly plans to put out more of these videos throughout the month, and I have to imagine most will end with the demise of Amanda Ripley. It's just like playing the game, then.

Extrasolar Season 2 is being funded through Kickstarter

I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a t...

VERY IMPORTANT: DuckTales theme recreated with real ducks

"Slow news day, huh?" someone typed into the comments bar, mouse hovering over the submit button. "What does this even have to do with videogames?" another was seconds away from chiming in. Many more followed suit, each and ...

Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here photo
Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here
by Bill Zoeker

We decided for this year's PAX Prime panel, we would let our very own Max Scoville just do whatever dumb garbage he wanted to come up with. The result was: "Videogames Are Stupid: The Inherit Silliness of the Medium." Enjoy this recording, in which the people running the panel A/V equipment at PAX managed to blow out the audio, and listen to us wing an hour of talking about how absurdly stupid our favorite form of entertainment is.

Max and I were joined by: Brian Altano, of IGN and The Comedy Button; Anthony Carboni, of We Have Concerns; Adam Kovic, from Machinima's Inside Gaming, and Jack DeVries, formerly at IGN and now something of an Internet vagrant.

2D survival horror Uncanny Valley has a demo out now

Way back in April, we first heard about Uncanny Valley, and we all had a nice juvenile moment of pointing and snickering at pixelated medical diagrams of human genitalia. The trailer also showed slightly less funny stuff: da...

Here's the entire Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Direct, check out the Star Fox costume
by Chris Carter

I'm still surprised that Nintendo is pushing Bayonetta 2 as hard as it is when Wonderful 101 matched their brand effortlessly, and they barely promoted it. As I've said in the past, every time I've seen this game demoed by a Nintendo representative, it's extremely awkward as they kind of look away when Bayonetta is being sexual and shrug their shoulders when something really violent happens. Like, am I supposed to enjoy it at that point? Too bad, I'm loving it.

Anyway, Bayonetta 2 got a Nintendo Direct last night, which revealed a few big developments. Most notably, Rodin is playable in Tag Climax mode, and there's a Fox McCloud costume now. Check out the full broadcast above.
