Cynics will call them walking simulators

In this episode of Podtoid, Brett talked about two walking simulators, What Remains of Edith Finch and Scanner Sombre. Steven just wanted to talk about the Silicon Valley failure Juicero. I made a machinima condolence vi...


The limits of nostalgia: Podtoid reviews Yooka-Laylee

What happens when you go back to the well and try to make a clone of a 20 year old game? Well, not exactly good things. But, maybe, still what crowdfunding supporters were after? You'll have to listen to the latest Podtoid special to see wh...


How are you liking Persona 5 so far?

It seems like people are really digging Persona 5, or at least people not named Brett Makedonski. At least, that's what I gather from listening to this latest episode of Podtoid. Steven and Ray are into it. Whatever floats their boats, I gu...


Are you buying the new Xbox One?

This is Podtoid 365, which means if you had the entire back catalog, you could listen to one episode every day for an entire year. We didn't do anything special for that, but that won't stop me from pointing out the next arbitrary milestone...


Brett chose to save Space Hitler

Brett had the choice to save Space Hitler or to liberate sci-fi Auschwitz. He went with the former. In his defense, he only had a few seconds to make the decision, so you can understand why it might have been tough. That's one of the topics...


A recap from GDC and PAX East

Ooh, this episode is a little late. See, I was on vacation, and the ol' crew decided to up and record an episode without even telling me. You know what that means? No Hot Dish! Even so, it's worth listening to, probably. I listened to parts...


What did Capcom finally get so right with Resident Evil 7?

Hello "fam." It's me, "Daddy," and all these modern-day neologisms aren't just an attempt to stay with it; they'll be familiar to you and appropriately amusing in their horrific juxtaposition if you've played Resident Evil 7. The jig is up....


Battleborn deserves to be game of the year

It's the last episode of 2016, so of course we looked back on the year and talked about our favorite games. The three-man Podtoid crew has some differing opinions, but we eventually came to the consensus that Battleborn is our game of the y...


Predictions for The Game Awards

The Game Awards are tonight, so last night the usual crew got together to make some predictions on it. Will Uncharted 4 sweep the show? Will Pokémon Go actually win something despite that it's a piece of garbage? Is Dark Souls III a ...


You probably shouldn't take pictures of strangers in public

People do dumb, silly, and strange things all the time. Sometimes they do it out in public. Now that everyone carries a little, inconspicuous camera with them, is it okay to snap a quick picture of these dumb, silly, and strange things? Tha...


Initial thoughts on Nintendo Switch

I love it when things slide into place and then click to fasten. Holy cow, that click on the Nintendo Switch. It's so gratifying. I will probably slide the Switch's Joy-Cons in and out, in and out, savoring each delicious snap. And I'm not ...


Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and Hamilton (for some reason)

Look, I didn't want this episode to be about the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton. I thought it would be a fun thing to briefly mention it as a show with good lyrics and an interesting premise. You can probably guess which of the core Po...


Thoughts on ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, and butt cancer

We took a week off to gather our chakras and set our crystals in neat rows, but the Podtoid crew is back. Actually, this episode was up on the Internet as early as Tuesday evening, but malevolent feng shui kept us from putting up a post not...


Let's talk all about PAX West 'cause it was a hell of a time

At PAX West this year, I made it a point to say "Beer for My Horses" as often as I could. I wasn't sure what the context was. I guess it's like how they say "Roll Tide" in the south. "You ready for that exam tomorrow?" "Roll Tide." "Johnny,...


What are some of the best console revisions of all-time?

Have you heard tell of this new PlayStation 4? It's slimmer and, uh, not as good looking. That's all according to the many many leaks that have hit the Internet this week. It won't be officially announced until September 7 -- two weeks...


What minigames are better than the games they're in?

We had a fabulous question this week that ended up comprising the bulk of our conversation in this, the slow season for games, and that is: which minigames actually surpass the game they're housed within, like an 8 ball hidden within a matr...


Alright, let's talk about No Man's Sky

Well, shit. Everyone's talking about No Man's Sky. Every website has a million No Man's Sky articles up (including us, admittedly), all the social media sites are filled with interesting No Man's Sky pictures and videos -- so many...


Let's get wet with the Abzu Podtoid

Last week, I reviewed Abzu and wasn't completely taken with it. However, much of the games press seems to have loved it, so Brett Makedonski, Steven Hansen, and I dedicated a small Podtoid to it. By listening, you can better understand...


Talking about some of the best science fiction games

No Man's Sky is the big story these days, and it got us thinking about some of our favorite science fiction games and series over the years. There have been some good 'uns. Like the one with the space ship and the lasers! Classic. I won't s...

What are our personal least favorite 10/10 games?

Games get perfect 10 scores from time to time. It's not often, and it's usually only the truly special ones that reach this peak. Those games clearly meant a lot to the reviewers who played them. But, on occasion, those of us who aren't tas...

The worst games we've been forced to play

Levity isn't necessarily a strong suit for this week's Podtoid. Don't let the title fool you; we talk about some of the worst games we've ever had to review, funerals, funerals again, and Darren's snake collection. All bad things. Even thou...


Pokemon Go: So, what's the big deal?

Subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or download it here. On this week's episode of Podtoid, the gang chats about Pokémon Go, JNCO pants, the NES Classic Mini, and whether or not the Nintendo 64 has more than ...

Nate Garro and the grind towards victory!


Robot Wars has been axed :(


Decided I cant buy so many damn Limited Run Games My backlog haunts


Just completed It was damn good, albeit with a lot of flaws (Annoying camera angles, some really unfair mooks even for my DMC standards, disappointing final boss fights, not enough humor), but I had a ton of fun and would replay it again

Here is episode 17 of my comic strip I think everyone here has been in this predicament at least once in their

Dangus Taargus

Does anyone here own the Bloodborne: Complete Edition on their PS4 digitally? Does it show up listed as the complete edition? Or is it just Bloodborne? I want that version if its different, but its currently cheaper to get it as standalone plus


I finally got around to watching Gotham by Its good, especially the animation, but the voice actor playing Bruce needed to emote Hes as stoic and monotone as modern Lara And that really drags the movie
