Lancarse PS3, Vita RPG titled Lost Dimension

Remember that PS3 and Vita we told you about yesterday? The one from Lancarse, the folks behind Lost Heroes, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey and two Etrian Odyssey Games? While lots of details were leaked, ...

PS1 title Hyper Crazy Climber now on PSN

Back in 1996, Nihon Bussan released a climbing game in Japan called Hyper Crazy Climber. In it, you just climb. Buildings, rocks, landmarks -- whatever. Climb, man. Show Nathan Drake how it really is. The controls are interes...

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...

New Vita, PS3 RPG from former Atlus devs coming soon

Rumor time. But this one is a good one, and likely a solid one. Something-something Dimension is all we have, thanks to a source that is holding off on full details, which are set to drop in a couple of days. But we do know t...

One more time: Dead Nation hits PS Vita later today

With Housemarque's 2010 top-down zombie shooter Dead Nation releasing on PlayStation 4 last month, I had wondered about the status of the long-promised but little-talked-about PS Vita port. It's still coming, we were assured....

Radicool skateboard game OlliOlli coming to PS3, PS4, PC in July photo
Radicool skateboard game OlliOlli coming to PS3, PS4, PC in July
by Steven Hansen

OlliOlli is a super fun little Vita game, but a lot of people won't buy a Vita because "it doesn't have any games" and they like to be wrong about things. If you're one of those people (or you don't have a Vita for a reasonable reason; for example, you live paycheck to paycheck barely making rent), rejoice.

OlliOlli is coming to PS3, PS4, and PC on July 22, Den of Geek reports. Now we can all be punk teens and skateboard against Godzillas and use shoelaces as belts.

Review: Putty Squad photo
Review: Putty Squad
by Chris Carter

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later.

The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.

This Bound By Flame combat overview is pretty damn informative

I'm not completely sold on Bound By Flame yet, but this video is doing a pretty decent job of showing off the variety of locales, enemies, and combat situations the game has to offer. The basic gimmick is that you'...

Divekick Addition Edition+ will keep growing if you keep playing photo
Divekick Addition Edition+ will keep growing if you keep playing
by Jonathan Holmes

We've got about 30 videos from PAX East to show you soon, many of which (Mewgenics, Rain World, Shovel Knight, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Interstellar Selfie Station, Kero Blaster, La-Mulana 2) are already up on the Dtoid YouTube page, with so much more to come. Argh! So many games!

One of the more salacious interviews we scored was with Adam "Keits" Heart, creator of Divekick. He told us all about how Johnny Gat from Saints Row ended up in the upcoming release of Divekick Addition Edition+ and how he fights. Johnny's jump and divekick offer a balance of both offensive and defensive attributes that are rivaled only by Dive and Kick themselves. It's only when he starts throwing out specials that things get really wild. His black hole move is extremely versatile, and allows for a myriad of possible effects on a fight. It changes the way gravity works for both characters, creating a suction point that might help or hurt either fighter. His dubstep gun and car-hit-you attacks are a little more straightforward, but even they have more to them than you might have guessed. 

The biggest shocker was that Adam has pledged to keep adding new characters to the game for no additional cost to the player as long as people keep playing Divekick. While Adam's got plenty of work in front of him on designing new content for Killer Instinct, he's not going to let his first game go by the wayside as long as there is an audience there that wants to keep the game alive.

Who would you want to see join the cast of Divekick Addition Edition+? From what I hear, the gang at Yacht Club Games would love to see Shovel Knight join the cast. Hmmmmm...
