Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster photo
Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster
by Brittany Vincent

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume.

This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.

Slain! is an homage to a particular kind of gothic, gory classic

We are not wanting for loving pixel art in this nostalgia-fueled retro renaissance, but Slain!'s Gothic horror manages to stand out the same way the sort of off kilter Altered Beast or Castlevania still do. Before "pixel art...

Damn, Hunger is unsettling

LittleBigPlanet Vita developer Tarsier's new project, Hunger, is looking impressive. And spooky. It's that good kind of "everything is off kilter and uncanny" beat of constant unnerving versus any sort of aggressive scare. T...

Surprise! OlliOlli 2 is coming out next week on PS4 and Vita photo
Surprise! OlliOlli 2 is coming out next week on PS4 and Vita
by Chris Carter

The original OlliOlli managed to charm a large number of the Dtoid staff, and a lot of us were looking forward to the sequel -- we just didn't think it would come this soon.

According to the developer, OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood will debut next week, March 3, on the PS4 and Vita. You'll be able to experience new ramps, levels, and an expanded combo system that involves manuals and reverts.

Sounds pretty sweet -- I wonder if it will come to PS+ eventually.
