The Witcher 3's Blood & Wine DLC looks dreamy

I know people who are anticipating the next Witcher 3 expansion, Blood & Wine, more than just about anything else on the docket for this year (which is exactly how I am with Souls add-ons, so, I get it). Sometimes, it's easy to forget h...

Ruiner is a slick-looking cyberpunk shooter

Reikon Games is taking us to 2091 with its upcoming top-down action-shooter Ruiner, and based on the cyberpunk imagery and snappy combat shown in this trailer, I am down. Where did this come from? It's being made in Warsaw by folks who pre...

Teleporting stealth game Twin Souls lives on as Aragami

Oh good! Twin Souls, that Tenchu-inspired undead-assassin game, still exists. It's now known as Aragami, which should help it stand out better, and the footage in this re-reveal trailer is more exciting than what I remember of Lince Works'...

No ifs, ands, or butts: Heroes of the Storm's Tracer is a beast

Blizzard seemed unsure of Overwatch at first. Before the warm reception in the beta, it only toyed with the idea of releasing a character to represent it in Heroes of the Storm, citing that one would only come after the launch of ...

Sentinels of the Multiverse dev wants to add in all current tabletop expansions

Sentinels of the Multiverse is an interesting game for a couple of reasons. For one, cooperative card games can be a good time no matter the subject matter; just chill with some friends while you see if you can collectively best an inanimat...

Namco's Arcade Game Series kicks off next week on PC, PS4, Xbox One

Do I need to buy Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, or Dig Dug yet again? No, not really. But the chance to do so is about to present itself through new ports for PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One, and I can't be held accountable for my late-ni...

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

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...
