Pocketoid Records Tonight With Shovel Knight Team!



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?   read

Pocketoid 48 - Bravely Default and SO much more!



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!

Pocketoid 46 - 2013 Game of the Year Awards!

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!

Hey guys! Just popping in to let you know that we are officially recording our very official 2013 Game of the Year Awards episode today! Shoot us a question and we'll answer it on the show! Of course, these are Pocketoid's games of the year so the only games that qualify are games that were released in 2013 for the Sony PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS, or mobile platforms!

Maybe Fire Emblem: Awakening will actually win something on Destructoid after all?

Also, we want to hear from you! What was YOUR favorite portable game of 2013? Tell us and we'll discuss it on the show!   read

Pocketoid Episodes 43&44 Are Up! Zelda, Tearaway, Jett Rocket, Lone Survivor



Hey! We put two episodes up and one of them was actually on time! Hopefully that becomes a trend. We also should have the iTunes situation ironed out soon, I know we've said that before but we're putting it back to the way it used to be for now so that will fix it for sure. 

Anyways, in episode 43 we talk about the totally not creepy game, Senran Kagura Burst and Jett Rocket II. That episode also featured our good friend Browner2008/Apoli90. Then there was the usual news and other nerdy junk that we always talk about. 

Episode 44 featured reviews for Tearaway, Ohno Odyssey, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds! Holy wow this episode had so much games it was insane! This was also the episode that we announced that both of your hosts now own PS Vitas so you can expect even more Vita coverage and reviews in the future. 

We had so much fun getting these episodes together for you guys so we really hope you guys enjoy it as well. Keep an eye out here for the next episode where we will be reviewing Stick It To The Man as well as possibly having a giveaway.

Pocketoid Episode 44 Records Tonight! Tearaway & Link Between Two Worlds! Ask ?s



Sorry that episode 43 isn't quite out yet, it is coming very soon. It's a busy season and editing is time consuming. 

The episode we're recording tonight is going to be stinking amazing! We get to talk about a brand new Zelda game AND Tearaway! Also, Joradan/Jackal 27 has a Vita now! And that's not even everything we're talking about! This is NOT the episode to miss out on asking us questions, so feel free to leave some below in the comments. We will read them and answer them and then we'll all be happy!

Pocketoid Episode 43 Records Tomorrow!


We played it for the articles...

Hey nerds! We're recording a ne Pocketoid tomorrow night with very special guest Browner2008! We have loads to talk about, from recent news stories, reviews of Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, Jett Rocket II, and Senran Kagura Burst (don't judge us).

We will also have more Pokemon talk since we are still obsessing over that.  And I imagine we'll probably get into the whole Swapnote fiasco as well. What we do need from you though, is questions! Ask them here!   read
