Let's keep enhancing the Pokemon series!

What DOOM could learn from modern shooters

DOOM is timeless. I don't think anyone would argue against that. And yet, while it's one of my absolute all-time favorite games and I'm beyond happy to replay it year after year (which I do), even I can admit ...   more



Pouring one out for Prey 2

I guess I should have seen it coming. I mean, all the signs were fucking there. Development hell doesn't even begin to describe what Prey 2 went through these past few years; how could...   more



Gotta find 'em all! The simple joy of an in-game collection

Sometimes I find myself thinking a lot about the little things in video games, things that other people might overlook completely, yet somehow, they stand out to me as something particularly unique and intriguing. One s...   more



B-b-bain calls d-d-dibs on Dedede!

Bbain's Jukebox: Final boss

Boss music is often the most thrilling, intense music found on a video game soundtrack. Then there is the final boss music, which takes things to the extreme, highlighting the climactic action of a game. Everyone has their fa...   more



Going to PAX? Why not take your favorite Dtoider with you?!

Inconsistent Appearance - How ugly should Horror really be?

Sex sells. It's a cliche but it's true. The more attractive your characters are the more likely you are to catch a viewer's interest long enough to draw them in, get them interested in the rest of your 'product'. This rule...   more

Bbain's Jukebox: Western

The past few weeks, I've been playing Wild Arms. It's a pretty solid fantasy RPG, but what drew me to the game in the first place was its western theme. Much of the game seems to be tenuously related to the western genre at b...   more



Tomb Raider is actually a survival horror game

Confession time: I've only ever played one video game which is considered a part of the survival horror genre, that game being Amnesia. I've never played any Resident Evils, or Silent Hills, or Fatal Frames, or Dead Spaces, o...   more

(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

As some of you may know, I was doing a Podcast with former Dtoid writers Conrad Zimmerman and Jim Sterling called The Dismal Jesters. It was more-or-less a continuation of the version of Podtoid that Jim put together in 201...   more



So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?  I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first and say "hi", before giving me ...   more

10 things you probably didn’t know or care about Beccy

I know these have been doing the rounds recently and it's been a shamefully long time since my last cblog, so I figured I'd hash something out. 1. I’m the European Community Manager. Yes, that is actually a thing. I took...   more



10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

1.  If you're a male, you're wrong.  One thing I've learned from gaming media in recent years is that being a woman makes me always right.  Apparently I lack "privilege" even though I'm a middle class white woman with a n...   more
