Fantasy Flight publishing Fallout: The Board Game

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy. Fallout: ...

Review: Turtle Beach Recon 150

Y'all like to hate on Destiny, but it has given me something no other game has: a weekly ritual of six-player cooperative first-person shooter raids that require not only skill and focus, but more importantly communication and coordina...

What's keeping you busy during this slow summer season?

Things have been a little slow on the blogging-about-video-games front, which works out okay now that we've got shows like Red Rocket League and The D-Team up on our new Dtoid Fight YouTube channel, but makes for some scattershot podcast ep...

Handstanding on everything in The Farm in Destiny 2

Bungie opened up The Farm, Destiny 2's social space taking place of The Tower, for just one hour this afternoon. It was a good time to become familiar with the new environment, hang out with friends, and play some really janky soccer. Or if...

Who would be video games' press secretary?

It has been a slow week for video games, so this episode of Podtoid is mostly just the crew talking about whatever come to mind. One topic was who the press secretary for video games would be. Our guess is Dorito Pope himself Geoff Keighley...

Destiny 2 details trickle in as Bungie gears up for the beta

We're not too far from the Destiny 2 beta (on console, anyway), with open access hitting on July 21 and preorders gaining access 2-3 days sooner. The full game is just two months away. In this home stretch, Bungie is trying to ramp up the ...

The good, bad, and sloppy drunk of E3 2017

The Electronic Entertainment Expo was last week and our team has had some time to go home, decompress, and sober up. Steven Hansen and Brett Makedonski regale us with tales of crowded E3 show floors, a dog pooping, a secret speakeasy, and h...

What the big three have to do to 'win' E3

Look, the whole "who won E3" thing is arbitrary and stupid, but somehow the Podtoid boys took that question and came up with some relatively smart things to say about it anyway. That was just one of the questions that came up on this pre-E3...

Now is a good time to chime in about Rime

There really isn't much to talk about in the video game world right now, because everybody is being so hush-hush in the lead up to E3. One of the games we talked about is Rime, which might be good or it might not. Brett doesn't know. (...

Have you done anything cool in Battlegrounds?

Steven has been playing it a bit, and he has found his best success in Battlegrounds while just driving a motorcycle off some jumps. At least, until he jumped into a bombing area. That's just one of the many things discussed on this episode...

My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...

Raise your hand if you don't know what Mr. Whippy is

Last episode we talked with Alex Rose about British slang (and his video game, I guess), and we're not letting up this week with a new term we learned from Destructoid alumnus Fraser Brown. What the heck is Mr. Whippy and why don't American...

Review: Mages of Mystralia

Magic is often taken for granted in games. It's just a skill you learn, to be called upon by a button press or a menu option later. Earn a new spell, equip it, then use it immediately for its effects without really thinking about how it was...

Super Rude Bear's Alex Rose chats with the Podtoid boys

On this episode of Podtoid, independent game developer Alex Rose talks about his recently released Super Rude Bear Resurrection, game development in general, and why it's okay for British people to call their friends "cunts." The crew spent...

Battleborn: a great game with a fatal flaw

One year ago today, Battleborn released to the world. And sure, we have fun with Randy Pitchford's ridiculous tweet about it, but the game holds a secret not many know: actually, it is very good. It could have been popular. Heck, I think it...
