Could GaymerX overtake PAX as the world's biggest game convention?

[Thanks to Dtoid community member Long John for the awesome video production work!] I've made it a habit over the years to ask PAX attendees if they are fans of the actual Penny Arcade comic. With every show that goes by, I hear ...

Who is your favorite 'indie publisher?'

The last few years have seen a huge influx of indie games on consoles, PC, and handhelds, providing potential players with more choices than many know what to do with. While the struggle to sort through tens of thousands of game releases a ...

When indie developers ask me what they can do to get their game noticed by press, one of the first things I tend to tell them is that they need to be able to sum it up with as few words as possible. A subject line, a tweet, o...   read

 
Seven preview
I shouldn't like Seven as much as I did. The RPG comes from some of the guys behind The Witcher 3, a game that never really hooked me, and was heavily inspired by Thief, a game I'm terrible at. I don't know how they did it, b...   read

Suda51: If you play Let it Die 'you will understand I am still crazy'

Our special little guy Jonathan Holmes caught up with the good-shoes-wearer himself, Suda51, at PAX last week in Boston for a hands-on with Grasshopper's upcoming Let it Die and a chat with the man himself. Holmes doesn't seem to have capt...

 
 
I'm sorry
On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goal...   read

 
Purrview from CATS East
When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods i...   read

Headlander feels like a licensed game for a cartoon that doesn't exist

Headlander looks fantastic. It feels like a space-themed spin-off of a primetime '70s sitcom; think Partridge Family 2200 A.D by way of Highlander. To some of you, that comparison may come across as a slight, so what you also need to unders...

 
 
I was wrong
I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I ju...   read

Mages of Mystralia balances skills through hex trees

The first time I tried to use a fireball spell in Mages of Mystralia, I had no idea why the ball of flame I created stayed where I created it. Archers were firing at me from across a chasm, and I could not fire back at them. I pulled up a m...

Damn, it feels good to be a Viking in Expeditions: Viking

Expeditions: Conquistador took me by surprise. I had no expectations going in, and what I found was a well-crafted and hard-as-nails strategy game. Now, we’re being transported further back in time to the era of the Vikings, a pe...

Battleborn DLC could give hints for Borderlands 3

We're on the cusp of the release of Battleborn, Gearbox's hobby-grade meta-growth shooter. Since it's still an unproven IP and Gearbox's other releases have been less than stellar, the game most on the mind of the people in the room at...

Is it fun to beat protesters and molotov the police in Riot - Civil Unrest?

I've had my eye on Riot - Civil Unreset since it was announced in 2013 via a crowdfunding campaign. I'm a big fan of politics - social and otherwise - and can't think of a single other game that lets players take a somewhat realistic l...

She Remembered Caterpillars is a charming bug puzzle adventure

When I first saw there was a game on the PAX East show floor called She Remembered Caterpillars, I was expecting some kind of 3D walking simulator about a young girl tending a garden. As it turns out, it's something entirely different and a...

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a brown, clunky, cash-in of a card game

Bethesda seems to be on a streak of trying to cash-in on already saturated markets. First it was The Elders Scrolls Online, and now it's the Hearthstone-like card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Publishers can't help but see the amou...

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

 
Samsneeze

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

 
Torchman

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

 
Lex

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

 
Nekrosys

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

 
Torchman

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

 
WryGuy

Vita vs PSP. Go. Nonono. Not the PSP Go. Just go.

 
Gamemaniac3434

Hey, just a streamin thing. free to join me for some REmake, ask me some questions about Microbiology and whatnot if you are interested.

 
Nekrosys

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

 
Steven Hansen

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

 
Osc

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

 
Vadicta

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

 
TheBlondeBass

Im so sorry GM, I should have been a better trainer for you... I mean, you had shitty moves and stats, but maybe if we got to talk to each other, understand each other, things wouldnt have come to this...

 
Chris Bradshaw

Hey heres a random thought, remember Nintendo TVii? Me neither.

 
Jinx 01

When people complain that Gotham doesnt fit the Batman continuity I have to ask... which continuity? I mean, how many goddamn versions of the Batman continuity are there? At least Gotham is trying something different (and doing it quite well imo).

 
Chris Seto

shameless plug! Anyone interested in Koihime Enbu on PC, a friend is running a double elimination tournament on Wed at 6pm GMT. Its an open competition so if you want to join, just sign up!

Meanwhile, Bo watches me kill a bunch of shit, and hes all Good going, man. And when I say Yeah! in return, hes all, Revel in it. You earned it, brotha. Best husbandu confirmed.

Is anybody else pretty scrubby at Street Fighter V? They killed what I loved about Gief in IV and now Im in a rut. My PSN is TurboThrill. Hit me up.

 
whatsacow

I actually think the Wii-U is the worst console I have ever owned. Ive played maybe 10 games I like on it, but only 3 are actually Wii-U games and not virtual console games, and only 1 of those is actually made by Nintendo.

 
jak2364

You guys report on Notch saying some stuff on Twitter, but you dont bother reporting on Notch reading Notch X Minecraft fanfiction on Witwixs stream today? Fucking Game Journalism man, really need to get yalls priorities straight. :)

Dear Laptop, I know you hate being cleaned but if you dont stop making that whining noise with your fan because I cleaned out the vents, I will take you in for repairs. You have been warned.

To Doom or not to Doom ... thats the question. Sometimes I hate my life.

 
Nekrosys

Lets be real, here. Rinkah x Kaze is, by far, the best ship. I refuse to hear otherwise.

 
Nathan D

Overwatch.

 
GoodlyMike

Beautiful.

 
medicamecanica

Disappointed in how the Overwatch micro stuff works. I expected it, but if I pay real money to support the game, I expect to get to PICK what I want. Not this gamble crap.
