August's PlayStation Plus lineup includes Yakuza 5

When it comes to these PlayStation Plus lists, I largely tend to focus on what's happening on PlayStation 4. Not this time! My attention has gone straight to the PS3 and PS Vita offerings. In August, PS Plus members will be able to download...   read

While people have been arguing about the Scarlett Johansson casting for the Ghost in the Shell film, I've been busy re-acquainting myself with the series. It...took a while. The original movie? Near perfect. The fact that a multimedia hydra...   read

When it took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few was easily one of the most intriguing titles of the show, promising a trippy story set in the drug-addled English township of Wellington We...   read

Worms W.M.D plays great, but is still the same ol' can of Worms

I've been playing the Worms series since the '90s. The height of my exposure was by way of the Game Boy version of Armageddon, which I could conveniently play during car rides -- on a portable, the pass-and-play style was almost how it was ...   read

Lay Lady Layton; Or, first they came for the Ghostbusters and I said nothing

First they made the Ghostbusters into women and the problem is that they weren't, at first. And you laughed. Oh how you laughed (perhaps at the film itself, I don't know, I'm too poor to afford movie theatres). But this is what we're talki...   read

No Trace looks like slick low-poly stealth action

I will always have an extra-soft spot for quality pixel art, but we could surely use more low-poly independent games, especially ones that bring something like Hitman to mind. This is No Trace, an upcoming top-down stealth-action game from...   read

What were some of the most underrated games of the last generation?

Against our better judgment, the Podtoid crew can sometimes be capable of talking about video games. Sometimes. It's kind of hard to talk about current games right now because of this dang summer drought that we're stuck in. So, we decided ...   read
