The new Danganronpa looks absolutely insane

Spike Chunsoft has shared another trailer for Danganronpa: Another Episode and it's pretty much pure madness. The PlayStation Vita title is set to release in Japan come September 25. No yet word regarding a potential western release, but we will be sure to keep you apprised. In the meantime, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is out now across North America and Europe.

Try not to think about cantaloupe while playing The Evil Within

I get such a kick out of seeing how things are made, especially when the people making said things are having a blast. This behind-the-scenes footage for The Evil Within is exactly what I'm talking about. We're given a glimp...

You’ll play Skullduggery greedily, whether fast or slow photo
You’ll play Skullduggery greedily, whether fast or slow
by Brett Makedonski

Flick, flick, flick. That’s all you’ll be doing in Skullduggery. Flicking to collect treasure. Flicking to outrun bosses. Flicking to line up stealthy headshots on unsuspecting enemies. You can play the game however you want (usually) -- fast or slow; just know that you’ll be flicking the whole time. And, if the build we saw at PAX Prime is any indication, it’s a flicking good time.

Skullduggery’s a title developed for tablets that borrows liberally from the simple mechanic that Rovio (maybe) popularized. By pulling back and letting go, players launch a skull across the screen. Do this ad nauseum, and you have Skullduggery. However, instead of an interspecies vendetta against pigs, this game’s protagonist has a goal that’s much easier to empathize with: riches.

How not to survive in Alien: Isolation

From everything I've heard of Alien: Isolation, it's best not to run around when you think the coast is clear much less when the Xenomorph is right there in the same room. See: the trailer above. Creative Assembly plans to put out more of these videos throughout the month, and I have to imagine most will end with the demise of Amanda Ripley. It's just like playing the game, then.

Extrasolar Season 2 is being funded through Kickstarter

I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a t...

Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here photo
Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here
by Bill Zoeker

We decided for this year's PAX Prime panel, we would let our very own Max Scoville just do whatever dumb garbage he wanted to come up with. The result was: "Videogames Are Stupid: The Inherit Silliness of the Medium." Enjoy this recording, in which the people running the panel A/V equipment at PAX managed to blow out the audio, and listen to us wing an hour of talking about how absurdly stupid our favorite form of entertainment is.

Max and I were joined by: Brian Altano, of IGN and The Comedy Button; Anthony Carboni, of We Have Concerns; Adam Kovic, from Machinima's Inside Gaming, and Jack DeVries, formerly at IGN and now something of an Internet vagrant.
