These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards

I wasn't so sure about the Spike VGAs being rebranded as VGX, but then I came to my senses and realized such things really don't matter. Some of you will argue that the show's awards don't matter, either. At any rate, this stuff is not goin...

The annual Spike Video Game Awards are set to take place this year, but they're undergoing a bit of a facelift. Instead of the moniker "VGAs" that we've known the awards show as for years, it's being rebranded as "VGX" this time 'round. The...

Attack on Titan 3DS game gets cool teaser, screens

The anime that's sweeping people I know (most of them through the internet) by storm is also getting a 3DS game courtesy of Spike Chunsoft. Given its wild popularity, a game based on the anime wherein teens fight Titans was inevitable. It ...

Attack on Titan anime gets a proper 3DS game

If you're into watching anime, you may know that Attack on Titan is the new hotness this season. The story of a bunch of angry kids chopping up funny-faced giants while using weird Spider-Man grappling hooks has captured the minds of m...

999 on iOS lacks any actual gameplay

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors was without question my favorite game of 2010. The sequel, Virtue's Last Reward, was pretty great as well, but the original was simply without equal. I recommend it to anyone I can, holding it as an...

Conception: Please Have My Baby sequel has waifus aplenty

Despite Spike Chunsoft showing some interest in bringing Conception 2 to western shores, it seems doubtful this Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita game will ever manage to escape from Japan. A bizarre dungeon crawler with a conceit...

Conception: Please Have My Baby gets sequel on 3DS, Vita

Remember Conception? Yeah, that PSP dungeon crawler where the protagonist must save the world by having magical children with a dozen celestial maidens. Well, it's getting a sequel and publisher Spike Chunsoft seems keen on bringing the tit...

VGAs: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 trailer

Whoa. Castlevania in modern times? What did I miss? I really need to get Lords of Shadow out of my backlog in preparation for the sequel. This brief trailer for the game was broadcast during the 2012 Spike VGAs, showing a very unhappy Prin...

Watch Podtoid's live Spike VGA commentary if you want!

Here are all the Spike VGA winners

Did you find there to be a noticeable lack of "A" in the broadcast of the 2012 Spike VGAs tonight? By my count, we had somewhere in the neighborhood of half a dozen actual awards given out during the two-hour presentation. A few games won i...

Zero Escape writer talks early third game details

Aksys selling VLR watches for Hurricane Sandy relief

Review: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

I cannot express enough how much I love 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. A cross between escape-the-room puzzler and visual novel, it sits as a shining example of how powerful and engaging videogame narratives can be. Not only is ...

From a bag of Doritos to a bag of dirty laundry

Who knew that a picture of a man sat next to a bag of Doritos could snowball into anger, humiliation, and intrigue? The most startling thing about this industry is that the biggest of avalanches can erupt from the humblest of places, and so...
