Hot damn this Tracer cosplay is on point

Here's is the best cosplay I've seen since that Lightning get up that looked like it could be in-game, or at least a high-res action figure photo shoot. And since it's not Lightning, the model has the added challenge of actually needing to ...

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...

Devolver-published #SelfieTennis looks, uh, weird

We've all known for a while that for virtual reality to take off, it needs to facilitate playing with oneself. Developer VR Unicorns perhaps took that advice too literally and built a game about playing tennis, except you continuously telep...

This Blanka toy makes me happier than Yoshinori Ono

Look at that beautiful little Blanka! Oh my gosh! I came across these Street Fighter Mini Figures from Multiverse and illustrator Miguel Wilson a while back, but must've been too tied up with who-knows-what to cover them at the time. The co...

Tokyo 42 is a damn cool take on Syndicate and classic GTA

As a modern take on the original Grand Theft Auto and Syndicate with some lovely pops of color, Tokyo 42 makes a great first impression. It's an open-world isometric game about an up-and-coming assassin "embroiled in all sorts of cyber-she...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

Deadlight returns with a director's cut this June
