Monday Mind Teasers: Doodle God

The previous Monday Mind Teaser game Fault Line was a big hit with readers, and I think this week's game will be too! For those of you like me, who refuse to upgrade to an iPhone or similar device, you can play nearly 100% of...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Fallout series

In last week's debate we discussed the pros and cons of two of the most loved games in recent years, and both games saw an immense amount of support, with many elaborate posts that I really enjoyed reading. Dtoid reader kn...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Mass Effect series

Just like the previous debate, calling Mass Effect a series after two games feels a little strange, but just like Golden Sun, Mass Effect is a series where fans loved the sequel as much -- or even more -- than the original ga...

Monday Mind Teasers: Fault Line

I've lost count of how many Portal styled map manipulation flash game spinoffs I've posted for Monday Mind Teasers, but I have yet to find one I didn't like. It's impressive how many different directions the mechanic can be t...

E3 2011 Prediction: Pegasus & Skyward Sword lets you fly

Vacationing in Rome during E3 means my flow of information is limited, but from everything I've seen and read so far, it seems like people are only commenting on the graphics, and not pointing a finger or Wiimote at the Kinec...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Golden Sun series

Yes, I know. Calling Golden Sun a series is a little laughable, but this RPG tournament qualification process is all about including every game the Dtoid Army demands, and the Golden Sun games were high on that list. In last ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Pokemon series!

In last week's debate we dived into the Lunar RPG series, and no matter how you combine or separate the remakes, there was still one distinct winner. For the sake of saving space, I've combined originals and remakes in the l...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Lunar series!

In last week's debate we made progress on our journey of choosing all the contenders for the massive RPG game debate tournament that's drawing near. Unlike two weeks ago, the last week's decision was almost unanimous, showin...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Baldur's Gate series!

In the previous debate we argued over another prestigious Square Enix series, and two games fought hard to win a spot in the RPG tournament. Here are the results: Kingdom Hearts (44 votes) -- Winner! Kingdom Hearts II (30 v...

Monday Mind Teaser: The Company of Myself

Let me be very clear: The Company of Myself is brilliant. I'm a lifelong defender of the gaming industry as one of the best art mediums the future has to offer, but due to my high expectations I often find myself not agreeing...

Monday Mind Teasers: Towlr

In the previous Monday Mind Teaser we gave Closure another look, and since then it went on to win an award in "Excellence in Audio" at the Independent Games Festival. Closure definitely has other strong points, but for going ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Kingdom Hearts series

Last week's debate almost proved a lot of readers wrong, and thus was a lot of fun to tally up the votes. Things started off with a wall of Grandia II votes and it didn't take long before people were declaring the debate over...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Grandia series

In the last debate we tackled the entire Dragon Quest series and tasked everyone with choosing their single favorite game. Some older titles got more support than I expected, and some got less, but when the dust finally sett...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Dragon Quest series

After yet another RPG series debate, we're growing ever closer to the actual epic tournament that will let your favorite RPGs battle to the death for the honor of being "the best RPG of all time." However, the RPG genre is on...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Xenosaga series

In the last debate we got one step closer to Dtoid's March Madness tournament that will run for several months. Our quest to find the best RPGs for our competition led us to the Breath of Fire series and the response we got w...

Monday Mind Teasers: Closure

This week's puzzle game will either fascinate or terrify you. Maybe both. Oh, and unlike recent mind teasers, it's so impressive that it's being remade for a PC release, which is up for three IGF award nominations and will be...

Monday Mind Teasers: Starmageddon

After last week's Blosics 2 physics box bonanza I was in the mood for a dark and deep puzzle adventure game this week, but Gateway ended up being way too short, and its sequel is barely more than a buggy remake. So this ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Suikoden series

Last week we began the process of gathering the final contestants for the many-month-long RPG debate to the death! Before moving on this week with Suikoden, let's see which game from the Tales RPG saga made the cut and will e...

Monday Mind Teasers: Blosics 2

Do you like explosions? Of course you do. Pixel art adventure games are fun and all, but sometimes I just need digital destruction to keep me amused. Throw in some slingshot game design, particle scatter physics, 30 levels an...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Tales RPG series

Monday Mind Teasers: One Button Bob

Hey, this is certainly no Robot Unicorn Attack, but I'm still confident this gorgeous pixel art game will be one of the better flash games of 2010. If Boomshine was the Fl0w of indie flash games this year, and Adult Swim's Ro...

Monday Mind Teasers: Robot Unicorn Attack

Yes, you read that correct. This week's Monday Masculinity Teaser is none other than the famous phantasmagorical stallion sidescroller game, Robot Unicorn Attack. It's already sold 2 million copies worldwide, won three Game o...

Game Debate to the Death: What are your favorite RPGs?

Last time we spent all week focusing on just the Final Fantasy series, and it was quite a lot to focus on. If you thought that was daunting though, just wait! Final Fantasy debates are usually a touchy subject, but while the ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death: Final Fantasy

The previous game debate let the readers pick their favorite game of 2009, and the results are in! With over a hundred votes cast for 40 different games, one game in particular rose way to the top. Before long it became a bat...

Monday Brainssss Teasers: zOMGies

This week's Monday Mind Teasers game is a lot like the last one . . . except with zombies. Okay, so not really. Instead of a sidescroller where you constantly dodge different shaped obstacles, you're challenged to outrun a ne...
