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...

PC players will have to wait a bit for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition

It was only a month ago that The Coalition boss Rod Fergusson took the floor at the PC Gaming show at E3 to announce that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition would release on Windows 10. That's still true, but it wo...

Submerged is kind of like Wind Waker if you only count the boat stuff

It may not be the iconic King of Red Lions, but like Wind Waker, Submerged also has a boat that you will become very accustomed to. Sea travel is about the only way to get around, after all. What else are you suppo...

Everything you need to know to get a Palutena amiibo

The first amiibo figure released as part of wave 5a is Palutena, and it's exclusive to Amazon. While retailer-exclusive amiibo have generally been a bad omen in the past, this has potential to actually work out for people who...

Life is Strange Episode Four is probably imminent, but not definitely

It's been a little while since we last heard from Max and Chloe in Life is Strange. To be exact, it's been nine weeks since the third episode released, meaning the next installment should be right around the corner. There's a...

Experts say Miyamoto unlikely to be Iwata's successor

It's been little more than one week since Nintendo head and video game industry visionary Satoru Iwata unfortunately passed away. While many are still understandably mourning, others can't help but look forward to predict wha...

Killer Instinct runs much faster than 60 frames per second

Yeah, it's a post about frames per second, but it's going in a different direction than usual. The standard is that a game runs at less than 60 FPS, and a lot of people get angry about it. This is about a title running at a ...

Project CARS on Wii U earns a DNF, officially cancelled

While Slightly Mad Studios' Project CARS has been zooming past one million sales on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, it won't get off the starting line on Wii U. That had been the murmured whisper around town, but the studio has n...

A game about gnomes and Armageddon, and I really hope it's 1998's Armageddon

Today's example of vague-yet-still-obvious news, Sony's filed a trademark for a game titled Gnomageddon. We know nothing else about it, but the name kind of says it all, right? There will be gnomes, and there will be some sor...

A Ground Zeroes mission foretold the Kojima and Konami split

"You might be able to erase the markings, but the memories will never disappear." That's what a Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes mission had to say about scrubbing away the logos for all the Metal Gear games. In h...

Bungie plucked its newest community manager from the Destiny subreddit

The creator of the subreddit for Destiny has leveraged his message board helpfulness into a paying gig at Bungie. The Destiny developer has hired a new community manager, and it went straight to a leader in one of the ga...

Yep, Nathan Drake still destroys everything in the Uncharted remaster

Much like Kratos' continued penchant for yelling at every opportunity, it's nice to see that reckless destruction doesn't just stop following Nathan Drake now that he's moved to PlayStation 4. A visit by him is a guaranteed ...

Nuna and Fox have another Never Alone adventure in them

Last winter, Upper One Games introduced audiences to a piece of Iñupiat folklore through Never Alone. It told the tale of Nuna and her pet fox as they attempted to find the source of a relentless blizzard an...

NHL 16 video shows off the literal small steps the game's taking

Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon isn't always going to zoom up ice, spin around Blackhawk blue-liners, and leave Corey Crawford looking for his jock in the rafters. I mean, that'll happen a good chunk of the time, but not ...

Last call to pick up the first free Xbox 360 game of July

This is like that song "Closing Time," except it's less about a bar shutting down and more about Plants vs. Zombies not being free after today. Maybe that's what the original song was about. I've always been super bad at...

Just Cause 3's interactive trailer drives home the agency of chaos

This isn't your typical video game trailer, because Just Cause 3 is not your typical video game. Instead of a carefully crafted sizzle reel, the audience gets to determine how the sizzle plays out. That's because Just C...

Naughty Dog devs thought The Last of Us would ruin the studio's name

The Last of Us was the game that proved to a lot of people that Naughty Dog could handle a mature narrative. Its writing explores the human condition and examines the child/guardian protective emotional bond. Upon relea...

Yep, Kratos still yells a lot in the God of War III remaster

You didn't think Kratos would suddenly drop the whole shouting thing for his first appearance on PS4, did you? Asking him to do that would be like taking away his blades and giving him walkie talkies instead. Constant yellin...

Palutena amiibo is an Amazon exclusive

While four of the five other major retailers have had multiple exclusive amiibo figures, Amazon's just now getting its first. Palutena, which makes up half of North America's wave 5a release, will only be available to order t...

A GIF that makes me finally love Arkham Knight's Batmobile

If I grind Arkham Knight out to one-hundred percent and find out this is what the "Knightfall Protocol" is, I'm going to be so pissed.
