A documentary about Mr. Rogers is coming just when we need it

I think it's fair for me to say that the world is filled with vitriol and animosity right now. Everywhere you look there are people angry about everything, politics, celebrities, social media, video games, a well made but somewhat flawed se...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for GOTY 2017

2017 may be over, but it won’t be forgotten. While 2016 had a collection of some decent enough titles, everyone brought out their A game this year. While I’m still not quite sure whether these games are as important as years pas...

A meteorologist reviews Geostorm

Whenever you see a new action movie coming out that defies the laws of physics or sense you are always told to "check your brain at the door." Now for most movies I can do this, I'll watch a giant green man who got his powers from exposure ...

The best stand up on Netflix right now

At the tender age of 10, I was plopped down in my father's car on the way home from dinner. My brother's leg jutted into my right knee, and we pushed against each other as the car swerved around corners, and cradled us over bumps in th...

Whittle, don't grind

I have always been unrepentant in my love for video game grinding. Give me a billion meaningless tasks to do and, if I like the game enough, I will check them off one by one. We're not talking about collecting all the heart containers in an...

Saints Row ruined Grand Theft Auto for me

My relationship with the car-jacking hooker-mugging series we all know as Grand Theft Auto began the way it does for a lot of people. Sometime when I was in middle school, a friend brought over a copy of Grand Theft Auto III. It was a weird...

Breath of the Wild is both a masterpiece and a disaster

[Header courtesy of EternaLegend] Basically everyone and their mother agrees that Breath of the Wild is an incredible game. At the same time, everyone and their mother hates Breath of the Wild. How is that possible? This is something I&rsqu...

So let's talk about Hainly Abrams from Mass Effect: Andromeda

Usually, when looking over my Dtoid emails, I'm content to watch the main staff do their thing. This includes controversial topics that I must later brace myself to help moderate alongside the rest of the community team, so it's rare that I...

What were the hidden gems of 2016?

Ray Porreca's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 was a wild year. Humanity got a raw deal over the last twelve months. Cool people died. Actual idiots got elected into office. Cigarette prices went up. I still can’t buy beer at a gas station in Pennsylvania.  Basically, th...

Capcom Vancouver talks Dead Rising, makes me want to vomit

I'm mad. I'm so peeved reading the interview between Capcom Vancouver and GamesIndustry.biz I don't even know where to begin. How about a series recap? Dead Rising was an amazing Xbox 360 exclusive title that came out of nowhere in lat...

What if video game consoles were WWE wrestlers?

The last time I grafted the history of the video game industry to pop culture, it went over much better than I expected; nobody executed me in the streets during E3 and I also wasn't fired! So for my follow-up, I decided to go with consoles...

The Nintendo 3DS is now five years old

It's difficult to believe the Nintendo 3DS is five years old. But apparently it is. The venerable handheld debuted on North American shores five years ago today. Of course, it arrived in Europe literally dozens of hours sooner, and the port...

Finding Weezer's 'Across the Sea' in Firewatch

As I trekked through Firewatch's forested western Wyoming landscape, one song kept entering and leaving my head, and it wasn't one of the game's serene, folksy acoustic guitar tunes. It was a song I listened to a lot in high schoo...

You know that trope where video game characters play a video game? Has there ever been a time where the characters inside that little game play an even SMALLER game inside of itself?
