Switch Port Report: Overwatch

For the past two years or so of my life, Overwatch has been at the forefront of my gaming habit. The team-based hero shooter struck gold when it released in 2016 and has grown to become one of the most well-known brands in the world, o...

Yes, you can pet the Polterpup in Luigi's Mansion 3

Despite its faults, I will always look back on my time with the original Luigi's Mansion fondly. After being forced to play as Luigi for years as my older brother would always get to be first player, it was nice to see Nintendo put him...

Mobile games need to stop tying accounts to Facebook

Early last year, against my better judgment, I invested a great deal of my time and effort into a free-to-play mobile game. It was Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia, and for three months it ate up every minute of free time I had. If I wasn...

Review: Various Daylife

One of the beautiful things about subscription services is they can provide eclectic creators a way to make their art without worrying about how well it will sell. For many of these products, they probably wouldn't stand a chance ...

Review: Stela

Charles Caleb Colton once said, "Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery." Clearly, Mr. Colton never owned iPhone. Since the launch of the App Store, it has become a cesspool of hastily thrown together titles that mimic, rip-off, or s...

Review: Call of Duty: Mobile

With the launch of Apple Arcade, I've been having a few regrets about being the frugal man that I am who always springs for the cheapest possible option. On my iPad, I'm constantly deleting old games to make way for the new. It's frustratin...

Starbreeze thinks it will be around in 2023

One of the annual publications from financial websites looking for easy hits is a list of companies that probably won't survive into the next year. Sometimes they're right on the money, like predicting Payless Shoes would go belly up in the...

Giving us your Podtoid questions is all part of the plan

October is finally here and we're just over a month away from the most highly anticipated game of 2019. I'm talking of course about Disney Tsum Tsum Festival and nothing else. The wait for it is killing us, but in the meantime, the Pod...

Actually, a Batman Court of Owls game would be dope as hell

It's the end of one of the busiest Septembers for gaming in recent memory and the Podtoid team is ready to see what October has in store. On this week's show, Dan is out so the rest of the team gets on discussing Mario Kart Tour, Ad Astra, ...

Review: Mario Kart Tour

Last year, when Nintendo first announced it would be taking Mario Kart to mobile, I was legitimately excited about the prospect. Sure, its output at the time wasn't an endless stream of home runs, but there was always the possibility i...

Review: Sayonara Wild Hearts

Adequately covering the launch of Apple Arcade is a herculean task for even the biggest of websites. There are just so many games, all released at once, during one of the busiest Septembers in recent memory. With this new streaming service,...

The path of self discovery to eating ass

Podtoid is back with an all-new episode and this week, the crew is getting weird. Chris explains how he'll eat anything with maple syrup on it, Occams is delving in the world of Borderlands 3, CJ is getting high scores in his favorite album...

Review: Assemble With Care

One of the great things about the mobile platform is it's ripe with opportunities for developers who want to create small, narrative-driven or experimental games. One of the worst things about the mobile ecosystem is it's largely unsupporti...

Review: Frogger in Toy Town

One of the most appealing facets of Apple Arcade is the idea that I can try before I buy. I know a lot of games these days come with demos, but usually those are extremely limited in how much you'll be able to see of the final product. With...
