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.   read

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.   read

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...   read

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?    read

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.   read

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.   read

Podtoid 270: Cookie, Suds Me Up With Soap And Foam!

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 everybody's Asia...

 
Wind Waker HD
[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...   read

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!   read

Rhymedown Spectacular: Whine out of Ten

This week, Yahtzee tackles ludonarrative dissonance and puts forth a most eloquent explanation. Meanwhile, I ... well ... look at the title. You know what this is about. You know.  And you love it.

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!   read

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.   read

Grand Theft Auto V
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...   read

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!   read

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?   read

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!   read

Podtoid 269: Lick A Frog's Holes

Jonathan Holmes attempts a PS Vita filibuster but is foiled by plans to burn all his possessions, waterboard him with gasoline, and force him to perform gratuitous sexual acts on amphibians in the name of musical theater.  That said, s...

A more sober version of me returns to the nuthouse for part two of Outlast. This time around, I come face to face with murderous naked men, catch a necrophiliac in the act, and pick up some batteries.  Hopefully you continue to enjoy the series! I love all of you watching so far, I love you on the butts.    read

Killzone: Mercenary
This is the game I wanted a PlayStation Vita for. I have a long documented fondness for the Killzone series, and while Killzone: Liberation on the PlayStation Portable was enjoyable enough, I truly longed for a genuine first-...   read

A Machine For Pigs
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a beloved title for a number of reasons. As well as becoming a viral darling thanks to a cavalcade of shrieking YouTube videos, Dark Descent was praised for bringing back a sense of true survival ...   read

Freedom of expression is not freedom to express without challenge. A game is within its rights to include any content it does, but that content is not sacred. Puppeteer features a boy as the hero, not a girl. Gavin Moore wa...   read

Last night, I got myself a little more drunk than I'd planned to and, in my feverish state of mind, decided it was a perfect time to fire up Outlast and record myself playing it. Going in blind, this is my first time reaction to what's already turning out to be a terrifying game.  People seem to have really enjoyed this one so far, so I intend to give y'all some more Outlast in future.   read

Puppeteer reviewed!

Review: Puppeteer

One has to hand it to Sony. Of all the "big three" console makers, the house of PlayStation is far and away the most open to risky prospects and new ideas. While Microsoft plays it safe with marketable shooters, and Nintendo ...   read

During this past weekend, I had the pleasure of sharing some screen time with Marcus Beer, known to GameTrailers viewers as the Annoyed Gamer. In this crossover video, we discuss preview events (and why I don't do them), independent developers, and the classic problem of industry overspending.  I hope you enjoy watching it almost as much as I enjoyed making it, ahur hur hur!   read

Podtoid 268: Anal Gummy Bears
