We're super excited to announce that we will be recording a new episode tonight with some people from Yacht Club Games to discuss their upcoming game, Shovel Knight! For those of you that don't know Shovel Knight was on kickstarter and did extremely well. It's a retro stylized side scrolling action game, think something like Mega Man meets Dark Souls. 

This game is a long time coming and will be released this week! We couldn't be more excited! If you're excited too than why not drop a question in the comments?












Let's celebrate the little handheld that started it all! This week's episode is all about the Game Boy! We have other things to talk about as well, but the conversation is mostly us talking about our favorite little console that could. We've got lots of things to talk about such as our favorite Game Boy games, accessories, childhood memories and more! We hope that you guys enjoy the episode!

ALSO! To help celebrate, Jordan is going to be streaming Game Boy games on his Twitch channel this week starting tonight! http://www.twitch.tv/jordan_starkweather

FINALLY. For those who don't know, we recorded this episode 3 separate times! But it's hear and better than ever. We have a TON of games to talk about this episode! 9 reviews total! MonkeyPaw Games sent us 3 of their Retro Rush titles so we have reviews for Double Dragon (PSone/PSN), Lucifer Ring (PSone/PSN), The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny (PSone/PSN). We've a few games for you mobile folks too, Hoplite (iOS/Android), QuizUp (iOS/Android), Flapthulu (iOS). We've got some bigger revies too, One Piece: Romance Dawn (3DS), Dustforce (Vita/PS3), OlliOlli (Vita).

And last, but certainly not least we've got our review for Bravely Default (3DS)! It's definitely been one of our most anticipated games for years and we are so excited to finally be reviewing it. This is definitely one that we will talking about for a while!

Anyway, it's been tough getting this episode out, but we're glad to finally get it to you guys! Sorry about weird echos and things. We're trying out a new recording method that's easier on us and gives you better sound quality, but there were some hiccups early in the episode. Enjoy!

It's been a minute but we are finally recording a new episode this weekend! We've had a lot of games to review including the meat of our episode, Bravely Default! So you have that to look forward too. We will also be reviewing Dustforce (PSN), Double Dragon (PSX), FireMen 2 (PSX), Flappy Bird (LOL), QuizUp (iOS), One Piece: Romance Dawn (3DS) and probably one or two more I'm forgetting about. 

There was a Nintendo Direct this week too so you know we'll be discussing that as well. What we'd really like though is questions from our favorite people in the world, OUR LISTENERS! If you have any questions please feel free to leave them below. And make sure to watch here for when the episode is edited and ready for your ears!








In this episode it's Pocketoid's 2013 Game of the Year Awards! Here at Pocketoid we only choose portable games so that means Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita, iOS, and Android! What an amazing year for portable games! Like, for real. Choosing our winners was so difficult and we only picked from games we actually played this year. There were plenty of games that didn't make it into the running simply because we didn't have time to check them out in 2013! It's a good problem to have.

Our choices may or may not reflect your own, but either way these are OUR lists so no complaining! Some of the best portable games of all time came out this year and it was very difficult choosing between them. Still, we think we did a pretty good job. Also, audio got out of sync a very tiny bit, sorry about that.

What were your favorite games of 2013!? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!
