Homefront: The Revolution is very different than when we last saw it

Sometimes when you see a game at a preview event, you don't even want to write about it. You just know that what was shown wasn't a good representation of the final game. Malicious intent isn't always to blame, either; there ...

Halo 5's new trailer has an excellent sliding kill

I'm at Microsoft's gamescom press conference battling bad Wi-Fi and mashing the keyboard in hopes that words magically form. Sometimes I get a chance to look up at the what's happening on the screen. It just so happens that ...

We Happy Few is coming to Xbox One first, my fair lady

ID@Xbox head Chris Charla ended his segment of Microsoft's gamescom press conference by calling We Happy Few "one of the creepiest games in recent memory." Look at that trailer. He's not wrong. It's not exactly feel-goo...

Xbox One Backward Compatibility comes to everyone in November

Microsoft is obviously looking forward to the future, but it hasn't completely turned its attention from the past. At E3, it dropped the bombshell that it had a backward compatibility program so that Xbox 360 titles could be ...

Quantum Break now has an April 5, 2016 release date

Microsoft kicked off its gamescom press conference by bending time and slowly shoving bullets into bad guys. That's Quantum Break -- part third-person cover action game and part television show. We still don't have a goo...

Review: World of Tanks

World of Tanks is a selfish game. It acts selfishly in that it hides information from its players, expecting them to figure out any and all intricacies on their own. Similarly, it asks its userbase to roll into combat as...

Panda and an airport: Dtoid goes to Germany

Friends, I'm stuck in limbo. It's nothing new for me, as this is where I usually am. It's not some sort of mental apathy or Dante-esque Hell Lite. No, I'm just in an airport again. The old guy sitting next to me almost spille...

Use your Club Nintendo codes right now

Club Nintendo has been in the process of shutting down for six months now. All along the way, there have been trigger dates where it's the last opportunity to do something or other. The last of those is upon us, and it's time...

Latest Witcher 3 patch makes it so you can hoard severed heads

Look, not everyone's a lunatic with some sort of dark pit (un-amiibo) in their basement. Those people probably have a stockpile of severed heads already. The latest Witcher 3 patch is for those who don't possess a bunch ...

Ghost Recon Wildlands trailer needs to be more careful with the yayo

Look at all these nice people saying nice things about Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Wildlands. The compliments aren't the reason we're sharing it, though; we just figured maybe you wanted to watch a guy walk menacingly toward a pig...

Persona 4: Dancing All Night trailer rocks faces with Kung-Fu dance

Chie insists that saving people in danger is her thing. I'd contend that dancing is her thing. She sure does a lot of dancing and not a lot of saving people in this trailer. Well, unless handing out unsolicited motivational ...

Rare was going to make Velvet Dark, a sister title to the N64 Perfect Dark

Perfect Dark -- or, as it's called on my block, "the game that fixed everything bad about GoldenEye" -- told the story of Carrington Institute's Joanna Dark as she attempted to thwart dataDyne's evil intentions and all t...

Race the Sun is fantastic, fun, and free today on PC

They say that going solar-powered is a cheap and efficient use of renewable energy. Solar-powered endless runner Race the Sun is the most cost-effective it'll ever be, but for today only. Like the game, it's over when t...

None of the Angry Birds 2 Angry Birds look like happy birds

Like a story Alfred Hitchcock once told, our fine, feathered friends aren't in a good mood today. The aviary community is up in wings over the launch of Angry Birds 2 on Android and iOS. They're irritated, upset, pissed...

Star Wars Battlefront has a team deathmatch mode, too

There's an explanation for nearly all action in the Star Wars universe, but sometimes you don't want to lean on reasoning as an excuse to shoot first. Sometimes you do it because it feels right (and because you want to a...

The last of Majesco's founding family has left the company

In 1986, Morris Sutton founded video game publisher Majesco Entertainment alongside his sons, Jesse and Joseph Sutton. While Morris and Joseph had moved on sometime ago, Jesse has served as the company's president and CEO sin...

The World of Warcraft is getting a little bigger soon

Blizzard has a new expansion planned for World of Warcraft, but it's holding its cards close to its chest. But, not that close! The developer's at least willing to admit that a reveal is imminent via a little tease. Whatever ...

Devs 'aren't trying to fix gameplay' with Gears of War remaster

Even though it'll release almost nine years after the original, Gears of War players won't feel a lot of difference between 2006's game and the remaster. Sure, they'll notice a ton of differences, but they won't feel&nb...

Large shipments of Dark Pit amiibo reported all across the US

Well, US-based amiibo collectors: it seems as if your hobby has gotten significantly less stressful since the wave 4 pre-order debacle. Despite the most recent partial wave being made up of two store exclusives, things aren't...

Review: Life is Strange: Dark Room

I played the fourth episode of Life is Strange with a lump in my throat. You know, the sort of uneasiness that puts a slight pressure behind your ears. The lump waned and grew with the chapter's crescendos and decrescend...

Life is Strange: Episode Four Achievement guide

We're inching ever-closer to the conclusion of Life is Strange. As we get nearer to knowing what the narrative holds for Max and Chloe, we find a bit of familiarity in the Achievements. Like always, episode four Dark Roo...

Huge upcoming Fallout: New Vegas mod introduces nuclear winter

Those who play Fallout: New Vegas are used to an arid and hot landscape, but one upcoming mod based on Bethesda's 2010 game flips those tables. It's trading desert stereotypes for a frigid tundra environment, and it all...

Kirby on Unreal 4 is, uh, kind of unsettling

Just like the Dtoid staff's attempt at drawing him last year, Kirby on Unreal Engine 4 just doesn't quite sit right. Maybe it's the way his gums (gums?) flap open to suck up a whole lot of nothing. Maybe it's a gritty filter...

OlliOlli 2 [skateboard trick]s its way to PC this summer

Up until this point, OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood has only shown off its sick tricks on PlayStation platforms. Impressive as they may be, developer Roll7 will soon prove the game has more up its sleeve than just PS4 a...

Super Mario Maker wants to ensure you remember classic Mario levels

The Mario franchise holds some of gaming's most universally well-known moments. No matter anyone's familiarity with games, chances are they've seen the first level of Super Mario Bros. They might even know where that extra l...

It's Friday, but GTA's Franklin has a case of the Mondays

Chin up, Franklin. We've all been there, and you're right: it is some bitch ass bullshit. But it gets better; it has to get better.

Fallout Shelter (Death)claws its way to Android in mid-August

It doesn't quite carry the weight of the "available now on iOS" announcement from E3, but Fallout Shelter will come to Android devices in just under three weeks' time. Bethesda's revealed that it's set for an August 13 l...

NHL 16 goalie trailer shows none of the best things Patrick Roy ever did

Goaltenders have exactly one job: tend to the goal. Don't let the puck hit the twine. Accomplish that through whatever means necessary. Force them to the glove side where you make web gems like Willie Mays. Flash the five-ho...

Review: F1 2015

No matter the length of race chosen, F1 2015 mandates at least one pit stop per outing. When pulling into the pits, control of the car is seized from the player and the steering wheel displays the words "pit limiter." Th...

What the hell is Deadliest Warrior: Battlegrounds?

Just as quietly and sneakily as one of its own ninjas, a new Deadliest Warrior game stealth-released on Xbox Live Arcade today. There had not even been a whisper that a follow-up was in the works. After downloading the t...
