Nintendo locking the Dark Souls network test behind Nintendo Online is not only a Nintendo thing to do, but it's another dot on the list of how ass-backwards they're handling their service.


Pre-ordered Octopath at GS, walked out today with these sweet holographic character cards. One of the better pre-order bonuses I've picked up.


As someone who abhors gyro controls for...anything (even Switch DOOM), can anyone explain to me the magic that Splatoon 2's gyro stuff work? There's so much...delicious...precision.


What's Dtoid playing this weekend? I picked up Splatoon 2 the other day and I'll be knocking out the campaign and Turf War stuff while the GF obsesses over Horizon Zero Dawn.


DOOM on Switch is finally getting a patch for those audio bugs. Thank Buddha.


Absolutely speechless at how great the Black Panther soundtrack is.


The Switch port of DOOM would be God Tier/S-Rank/The Whole Fucking Enchilada if the audio bs was patched.




Cleared the final Divine Beast (Rudania) in BOTW today. This is the first Zelda game in a very long time that I'll actually finish, and it's bittersweet. I don't want it to end.


Considering getting DOOM for the Switch, but I feel as if going from a console experience to the Switch is going to be jarring in a big way in terms of framerate. Anyone here have both versions? How does it feel to y'all?


Finally caved and picked up a Switch on Saturday w/Odyssey. I don't think I've dug a console this much since the Wii, and I can't wait for next year's library to hit (Bayonetta, Octopath).


Hype as fuck after that Injustice 2 Hellboy reveal. Makes waiting for the complete edition much more difficult.


My girlfriend (who is farther ahead in the game than I) has been asking why I haven't played Pyre since I've been hitting up other bits of my library. True story: I don't want it to end. It's too goddamned fun.


Random thought: I don't think I've been to a game bar that didn't have Street Fighter in some capacity (art mural or playable game).


Nier: Automata has to be the most meditative Platinum game I've ever played. And when you think Platinum, you usually don't think "meditative."


EDIT: Stream has ended! How about a late night Nier: Automata stream? I'll be on twitch here in a bit running the first couple hours of the game. Come watch! twitch.tv/legend(underscore)penguin


Question for the community - Do you guys frown upon self-promotion around here? I wanted to stream Nier tonight and would love ya'll to watch, but I'm concerned that doing a Q-post on that would be considered shitposting. Please let me know. Thanks!


Yesterday I asked y'all for some PS4 game recommendations as a new owner, and your response was bigger than I thought it would be. This community is friggin' awesome and I love it. Thanks for taking the time, folks!


Decided to splurge on a PS4 while I wait a bit on Nintendo's new thingy. Any games you folks would recommend (aside from Nier, Uncharted 4, HZD & Bloodborne)?


An early review of Final Fantasy XV after 6 1/2 hours of gametime. *ahem* Holy balls this thing is fucking brilliant.


My pet peeve of this generation. "Ready to start" =/= "installing."




Been worried that the series was starting to stagnate, but this Sun/Moon demo has me hyped to the ninth degree. So many good ideas are going into this game and it's going to be fantastic.


Finally picked up the Handsome Collection and I'm digging it. I got through the campaign (main and DLC) on my laptop but the performance left a lot to be desired. Here, I can't get over how smooth the HC feels, and it looks good too.


There's an immense pain attached to losing 18,000 souls in Scholar of the First Sin. There's a similar pain when you realized that it was you who fucked up royal - not the game being unfair.


It's always been fascinating to see how NoA and Nintendo UK handle the same games...


Found this gem a couple days ago and I couldn't believe that I was even holding it. It's one of the few games where the ending had an emotional impact on me as young'n, aside from being just brilliant. Definitely in my top five.

Hello! LegendPenguin here! I've been lurking around DToid for years (seven) but my posts have been massively sporadic. Seeing great things happening here keeps pushing me to try harder to make more out of my time.
