Did you get any gaming goodies this Christmas?

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. That song they've been playing in shops says so.Christmas Day is underway. Maybe you're surrounded by annoying loving family members and friends. Perhaps you're stuffing your face with more food tha...

What news and announcements this week pressed your buttons?

Well, it was big week for news this week. The Game Awards 2017 and the PlayStation Experience, among other headlines and streams, have brought hot gossip and exciting images for 2018 and beyond.We got an eight-minute head-scratcher in the f...

Do you think we'll get a Mario Odyssey 2 on Switch?

The dust has settled, and people still like Mario Odyssey. It's one of the best-reviewed games of all time, and pretty much every anecdotal tale I've heard has been positive. Also, it's the fastest-selling Mario to date -- yeah, there'...

Are you going to be picking up Switch ports like Skyrim?

Skyrim is that game that just won't die. Not that I'm bitter that Bethesda didn't choose Morrowind for that task or anything (man, if only we could get a remaster of that every generation; I want to live in an HD Balmora!), but it...

Which feature do you want to come to Switch the most?

With the advent of the Switch 4.0 update that allows limited 30-second videos for select games, it really got me thinking -- what does the Switch need? I mean, there's a lot of ancillary stuff that Nintendo could do to catch up to other con...

What's your most-played SNES Classic game so far?

There are 21 games included on the SNES Classic -- which one are you most into right now? My playing habits have been all over the place since the mini console launched. I beat Mega Man X's iconic intro after booting up the system. (Ahh, it...

What else are you excited for this year?

I was talking to some colleagues of mine this weekend about what's left in 2017, and many of them didn't have much enthusiasm to share. It dawned on me that many are PC-centric, so outside of Destiny 2 (which is already out on consoles) and...

What is the most aesthetically pleasing console you own?

Across years of releases, video game consoles have had almost every look under the sun. From the loud, bright-green-on-black of the original Xbox, to the translucent black Sega Saturn which adamantly declares on its disc tray "Thi...

Is an Arcade Edition enough to 'save' Street Fighter V?

Well it's here. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is confirmed, and no longer a series of rumors that all point to the same thing -- Capcom attempting to apologize or "save" the original incarnation of Street Fighter V. Despite a lot of love...

Did you pick up the elusive SNES Mini today?

Nintendo Friday madness is upon us. I know the feeling all too well, waking up before the break of dawn to go hunt for amiibo -- a practice I gave up shortly after the disastrous Wave 4 debacle. Rather, today is all about the SNES Classic, ...

What is your gaming white whale?

New games are releasing all the time. For this reason, especially in the digital age, a lot of us find ourselves tasked with chipping away at seemingly insurmountable backlogs when we aren't playing the newest releases.   Over my years...

Hit me (with your Podtoid questions)

It's the most wonderful time of the week. Podtoid's recording tonight, baby. That means Steven, Brett, and I will be gathered around our microphones to talk about all the stupid, silly, and weird things that cross our minds. We'll probably ...

Is there a game you eventually grew to love?

Having played through the Final Fantasy V-themed Omega raid in FFXIV this week, I felt an overwhelming sense of melancholy sweeping over me. Final Fantasy V -- a game that the series owes so much to, and yet, was underappreciated for so lon...

What games did you get during Steam's Summer Sale?

In a cruel twist of fate, Steam's annual Summer Sale started almost exactly one week after I bit the bullet and built my first gaming PC rig. Despite owning more than 300 games on Steam and spending more money than I should on the build, I ...

Did anyone else regularly get scared by Nintendo 64 games?

The Nintendo 64 wasn't my favorite console. Even on a good day, it doesn't make my top five. And many of its best games don't hold up super well if you're running them on the original hardware. But, all that said, the N64 does warrant a spe...

What old series do you want to see Sega bring back the most?

Sega has given us a major tease ahead of E3, noting that they want to revive "major IPs" as part of a sort of corporate restructuring. We've already seen some revivals, a few of which have had success. Just look at the well received&nb...

How much longer will Nintendo support the 3DS?

Nintendo is not giving up on the 3DS. Well, "giving up" isn't the perfect turn of phrase as it's been quite successful over the years, but rather than focus fully on the Switch they chose to just kill off the Wii U instead and keep creating...

Which Souls boss gave you the most hell?

With the final Dark Souls III expansion out and sleep sacrificed to play it, I've been dying a lot lately. And when I'm not repeatedly falling in battle -- for instance: during the tense final seconds of the drawn-out duel with The Ringed C...
