Hey there, cool friends! I've got more Indigo Prophecy coming to you, but right now I'm having a go at pulling my own little YouTube channel up by its bootstraps and experimenting with things. What yummy fun!
Here, I play Vi...
On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens.
Also, crap stealth and some other things.
Certain game series can get away without making significant changes to their formula -- in fact, there are some that would risk infuriating their fans if they did alter too much. Games like The Legend of Zelda, Street Fighter...
In this thrilling installment of Indigo Prophecy, we drink water, play the guitar, punch a bag, play the guitar, and listen to more Theory of a Deadman. The fun literally never ends. It will never end. The fun is literally going on forever.
It's gonna move!
Danny Baranowsky is in the house, back with the Podtoid gang by popular demand. The game composer is on hand to talk about Jonathan going face-down-ass-up, Conrad pottering about in the garden, and Julia Child scaring childre...
I fiddle with the temperature knob and get murderous as I play Quantic Dream's true classic, Indigo Prophecy. Laugh along as we murder people in bathrooms, interrogate distraught women, and listen to music about women doin' ya wrong.
Oh Theory of a Deadman. You scallywags!

As you can see, it manages to capture absolutely everything about the modern gamer in just two short statements.
There probably won't be any more Legends of Dawn, because the game crashed while I was recording and took all the video with it. Buggy game, that is! Fortunately, we have a different legend for you, with Legends of Aethereus!
Enjoy the world's most thorough tutorial, and let's kill some Definitely-Not-Orcs!
You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass.
Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things.
It's hard to divorce David Cage, the public figure, from the games Quantic Dream makes. He is, after all, a man who put himself in Indigo Prophecy's tutorial, immortalized as the movie director he's always dreamed of being. T...
In what is easily my favorite Now Bloody Playing to date, I battle Skittlers and meet the best voice actors in the world, all with Legends of Dawn!
I had a blast with this one, and you can expect to see much more of it in future. Way too much of it.
On this week's Podtoid, Jonathan Holmes finally breaks bad, but not before he runs the sexiest dog hotel you ever did see! Elsewhere, Willem Dafoe goes to Heaven and meets a saucy Dolly Parton, while MANY OTHER THINGS HAPPEN!...
Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast!
We might do more of this one. Depends how much y'all like it.
Sony has a stable of impressive top-tier game franchises -- Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, the kind of blockbuster productions every console needs to open eyelids among the mainstream users. I, however, will remember Sony's...
Let's look for a playable woman protagonist in a videogame that doesn't rely on the same pool of restrictive stereotypes as every other playable woman protagonist.
To do this, let's look at a fighting game from 1994. That one about the dinosaurs. Yes, that one. Because I damn well sure can't find many better example. Folks, be prepared ... to RAGE.
Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers!
Anyway, I played the demo. You can watch me play it, if you want.
Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire game.
I wish I could just be showing off how much fun this game is. I can't though. Now I'm sad in my face.
It is an experimental new Podtoid, as this week we recorded the questions segment live! Yes, the question part of the show was broadcast online and we answered queries in REAL TIME! It went of surprisingly well, too.

I didn't get very far into Alien Rage, I'm going to admit that right off the bat. It was not, however, for the want of trying. There are parts in Alien Rage where the game decides that working properly is for losers, so it do...
This week, Yahtzee details that growing videogame tradition, the need to press "X" in order to do anything and everything. Meanwhile, your buddy Jim Sterling pays tribute to one of the finest actors ever born, Dean "Once Was Superman For A Bit" Cain.
Oh, Dean Cain. You're so beautiful.
In today's little carnival of misery, I try to contain my internal juices as I play Motion Sickness: The Game and fire my squirty gun at the Genericons. Yeah, Alien Rage isn't very good.
A full review is coming later today, where I further eviscerate this complete waste of time and money.
People have been buzzing about Race The Sun lately, and so I decided to check it out for your sensual enjoyment. I'm not very good at it, but I'm having a laugh with it, and that's what matters. At the end of the day, that's what bloody matters.
So yeah, watch this video if you like!
Oh, and Race The Sun can be voted for on its Greenlight page right here.
Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it.
Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.
Here we go, at last! The thrilling conclusion to Outlast, played by a man who ended how he started -- completely pickled. In this final chapter, we evade the Nude Brothers, we witness the Big'Un get what he deserves, we reun...
Your good pal Jim Sterling returns to Mount Massive Asylum for another descent into madness. This time, we see yet more naked butts, faff about with three fuses, get chased by the big'un again, and have an encounter with a pair of old, nude, friends.
There. You got another Outlast video. Satisfied? Satisfied, now that you got, finally, your cheesy balls?
Discovered a new horror game on Steam last night, so I decided to record myself playing it for your ridiculous entertainment. It's called Doorways, it bills itself as a survival horror game, but it kind of isn't. It's interesting, though!
Why not watch the video and see if you, too, find it interesting? Maybe you don't. That's okay too.
Time for some more stupid gameplay video stupidity for you to swallow into your gawking eyes. Why not watch me play Shelter for a minute? I'm going to wander around and drop onion things in front of little baby badgers.
Well then, that's fun isn't it? Yes. That's fun.
It's the satire special of Podtoid this week. To celebrate Grand Theft Auto V, we're having Jonathan Holmes commit hate crimes in Boston ... ironically! Elsewhere, Willem Dafoe thinks back on a fine luncheon, Holmes becomes e...
[Note: Join us Thursday @ 2pm PST for a live video + chat discussion about this review.]
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is easily my favorite Zelda game in the series -- a not altogether uncommon opinion, now that many y...
Today I am playing Delver, a roguelike-esque first-person adventure recommended to me after I played Paranautical Activity. For those of you who weren't so hot on that latter game, methinks this one is far more your speed.
We will have more Outlast for you this week, that much is certain, I just felt like trying new things. I may give Shelter a go next. Then it's back to the scarytimes!
Here's some Grand Theft Auto V gameplay to cram inside of your heads. If you are one of those not currently playing it, this will be a delightful little treat for your mushy brains. Alternatively, if you are playing it, come click on the video anyway. My ego needs the views.
Enjoy some moving pictures of me running through GTAV's "Blitz Play" mission. It's a thing you can do!
This week, Jim loads his gun and shoots holes in the argument that certain games suffer from ludonarrative dissonance, just because they're violent. Because really, people, that's not even what ludonarrative dissonance is!
If you're gonna use big words to sound smart, use 'em correctly ... guttersnipes.
Writing an introduction to a Grand Theft Auto review seems unnecessary. If you know videogames, you know Grand Theft Auto. Hell, even if you don't know videogames, there's a better than low chance you know Grand Theft Auto. T...
It's time for the fourth installment of Outlast. On today's spooky chapter, I run around in circles from a doctor as murderous as he is naked, get smashed by a big 'un, and turn some valves in the name of progress. It's all scary stuff!
We may very well be coming to the end of the road after this one. It's been fun!
It's time for the third part of my Outlast gameplay extravaganza! This time, I get caught down in the sewers with Smashy Smashy Egg Man, I get chased through corridors by maniacs, and I enjoy a session with a naked butt doctor.
How can you refuse, with a summary like that?
So, I'll be doing your Grand Theft Auto V review for you, and you'll doubtless want to know exactly how biased and paid off I am. This video, produced in the name of disclosure, reveals the expensive gift items and stacks of loot that definitely swayed my opinion. Or not. You decide.
Check out the towel, bullet whistle, and dog pockets that have bought your upcoming GTA V review!
