It's the end of an era for Podtoid

This episode marks the end of an era. Steven Hansen, host of Podtoid for the past year or so, is leaving Destructoid. Podtoid will go into remission for a bit, until it springs up again when you least expect it. On this episode, Steven Hans...


Ears up, Guardian: it's a special Destiny 2 Podtoid episode

Bungie's loved/hated shared world shooter series just saw its second full release with Destiny 2. How'd it turn out? Jordan Devore, Darren Nakamura, and Ray Porreca gathered around the broken fountain on The Farm to talk about luminous engr...


Podtoid 380: Killing time and blowin' mimes

PAX West 2017 just finished, and we've got some tales to tell of our time up there. Steven Hansen, Brett Makedonski, and Darren Nakamura talk a little bit about the best and worst of PAX West, including hanging out with Taco Bell PR and sta...


Destructoid is gearing up for PAX West

Look, it's late (as I write this the night before it publishes), I still need to pack for PAX, and thus, I have no idea what's in this episode of Podtoid. The title was taken from the first soundbite I randomly checked. It's a grab bag! I'l...


Would hip teens think Sonic Mania is good?

So Sonic Mania is out and it's sounding like it's actually pretty dang good. But is it only good if you loved Sonic back in the '90s, or would somebody without that nostalgia still think it's great? That was one of the topics on this episod...


What's keeping you busy during this slow summer season?

Things have been a little slow on the blogging-about-video-games front, which works out okay now that we've got shows like Red Rocket League and The D-Team up on our new Dtoid Fight YouTube channel, but makes for some scattershot podcast ep...


Who would be video games' press secretary?

It has been a slow week for video games, so this episode of Podtoid is mostly just the crew talking about whatever come to mind. One topic was who the press secretary for video games would be. Our guess is Dorito Pope himself Geoff Keighley...


The good, bad, and sloppy drunk of E3 2017

The Electronic Entertainment Expo was last week and our team has had some time to go home, decompress, and sober up. Steven Hansen and Brett Makedonski regale us with tales of crowded E3 show floors, a dog pooping, a secret speakeasy, and h...


What the big three have to do to 'win' E3

Look, the whole "who won E3" thing is arbitrary and stupid, but somehow the Podtoid boys took that question and came up with some relatively smart things to say about it anyway. That was just one of the questions that came up on this pre-E3...


Now is a good time to chime in about Rime

There really isn't much to talk about in the video game world right now, because everybody is being so hush-hush in the lead up to E3. One of the games we talked about is Rime, which might be good or it might not. Brett doesn't know. (...


Have you done anything cool in Battlegrounds?

Steven has been playing it a bit, and he has found his best success in Battlegrounds while just driving a motorcycle off some jumps. At least, until he jumped into a bombing area. That's just one of the many things discussed on this episode...


Raise your hand if you don't know what Mr. Whippy is

Last episode we talked with Alex Rose about British slang (and his video game, I guess), and we're not letting up this week with a new term we learned from Destructoid alumnus Fraser Brown. What the heck is Mr. Whippy and why don't American...


Super Rude Bear's Alex Rose chats with the Podtoid boys

On this episode of Podtoid, independent game developer Alex Rose talks about his recently released Super Rude Bear Resurrection, game development in general, and why it's okay for British people to call their friends "cunts." The crew spent...


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...
