Realistic Street Fighter 4 art is creepy and awesome

One of the reasons that I usually don't care either way about HD visuals is that today's developers seem to be so focused on using that extra fidelity for stuff like pock marks and realistic acne. If that kind of "realism" was my thing, I w...


Live action Pokemon trailer inspires mixed emotions

Fan-made Metroid manga looks freaking fantastic

I'm really impressed with this manga. Most of it's in color, and all of it looks awesome. The story is pretty weird; there's a whole lot of words, but nothing really happens. That's OK though. As far as free online comics go, you can't ask ...


E3 10: Husky and Holmes on Tron: Evolution (PS3/360)

God, it feels like years ago now that I posted the first video where Husky and myself chat about Tron: Evolution on the Wii. Before that though, we got a crack at the PS3/360 build of the game. Due to technological difficulties, we couldn'...

Fan-created Mega Man FPS gets an even better trailer

Mega Man games seem to go over better when they stick to their 8-bit roots, but there's no reason why they can't be 8-bit-ish while operating on all three axes. Just take a look at Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch, a game that takes the sprites fr...


CES 2010: Booth babe horror stories documentary

Here’s a news flash for guys who attend conventions: it isn’t okay for you to treat booth babes without respect. Gizmodo posted a short (under four minutes) documentary of sorts in which they asked a number of CES booth babes ab...


Mega Man fan movie to premiere very soon

Back in November of 2008 we showed off a trailer for a fan-made Mega Man movie that looked ridiculously awesome. Things went quiet after that for us here at Dtoid except for an all too brief interview at last year's MAGFest. Well, leave it ...


Love Plus Christmas event gives cake, augments reality

[As posted on Japanator] The life-ruining awesome dating simulator Love Plus does a fine job of adding to the bleak wasteland that is the 3D world on its own, but it seems Konami has yet more plans in store for otaku and their DS-bound waif...


Nepotism FTW: Spirit Tracks has Mother 3's rope snake

So I guess the Mother/Earthbound community has been talking about this for a while, but I didn't see the connection until this morning as I was cruising around the Game Watch Impress looking for news. LoZ: Spirit Tracks has been really hard...


TGS 09: Scandal! Censorship! Underboob!

Underboob. It's like some rare form of cleavage that is scarcely seen in the real world, and often times when it is it's hardly as good as it looks in the magazines that men get for the "articles." However, could it be that underb...

Presenting DJ Malloc's 'Paradigm Collection'

In seems that reworking old videogame covers in styles popularized by artsy fartsy books and movies is the new cool thing to do. For the cynical, it might seem like internet hivemind, but I can spot a good concept when I see it. The house t...


Paper route: ddi714d's moveable papercraft machines

If I wanted to post all the great videogame-related papercraft out there, I would just post links to Cubeecraft everyday and close up shop. Every once in a while, however, truly amazing papercraft comes along and I just can't help myself.En...


DoubleBear's ZRPG, a psychological zombie RPG

So, raise your hands if you're tired of zombies. No? No one? Good.With the exception of perhaps Dead Head Fred, the thing about most zombie games is that you spend most of your time slaughtering them. Even the best zombie games (like Left 4...


NeoGAF adds Scribblenauts hype with fan art avatars

I don't think I'll ever get tired of reading and writing about 5th Cell's adorable Scribblenauts, an upcoming puzzle/platformer that's been making a stir since this year's E3, and the epic NeoGAF thread it spawned. While NeoGAF tends to be ...
