There's nothing I can say.

You had one of the first social/interactive/chill streaming channels that jumped from Justin.tv to Twitch.tv at its formation, and was a cornerstone to Twitch's early development aside from esports content. You had one of the widest vari...

 
 
 

RIP Dtoid.tv

You heard that we were great But now you think we're lame Since you saw the show last night You hoped that we would rock And knock it up a notch Rockin' was nowhere in sight And it's never good when it goes bad No one likes to feel ...

 
 
 
 

What the heck is a Streamtoid, anyway?

You've seen the daily posts for Mash Tactics. You've seen the weekend schedule each week for the heaps of shows we have on Dtoid.tv over the weekend. You've caught Jonathan Holmes' 'Sup Holmes Interviews, or explored the Dafoeverse vicariou...

 
 
 
 
 

A beginner's guide to Z-grade Dtoid fame

A section of the latest Communitoid that touched upon people asking how to gain a higher profile in the community resonated pretty solidly with me. A lot of good points were raised, and, having been floating around here for a while, I figur...

 
 
 

Taking "idiot nerd girl" back.

As one who's not that fond of image memes, being old enough to remember that photos used to be funny without stupid captions added to them, and given my attitudes toward the treatment of women on the nerdier side, you can imagine I'm not on...

 
 
 

Byte-Sized Boos: indie horror quick hits

I've discussed Slender and Slender Man's Shadow in the past, but in their wake has come a veritable onslaught of independent, free games flying a banner of "horror" and trying to get a piece of the YouTube scaredy-cat pie. In an effort to n...

 
 
 
 

Red and Blue, resolving into purple.

This almost qualifies as NVGR, but given Red Vs Blue's basis on Halo, I figure it counts. Kinda personal, tl;dr ahead, so if you're not into that, you can find the Back button easily enough. Of all the things that have ever ended up tear-j...

 
 
 

Something to be thankful for: the end of Ctrl-Alt-Del

After just over ten years of publishing, gamer-centric webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del would appear to be calling it quits. Having somehow survived the post-Penny-Arcade boom that spawned a slew of similar, "gamer buddy" strips in the late '90s and...

 
 
 

Halo 4: Trying to reinvent the ring.

(Yeah, another Halo 4 blog. At least this one isn't nearly as spoilery as my prior one, so enjoy without worry.) It goes without saying that I'm kind of a Halo fanboy. With several blogs on the series over the years, one in just the past w...

 
 
 

La Blue Girl and the Demon

First things first, title aside, this is safe for work, and has nothing to do with any sort of anime. And, while I usually open with a relevant introduction and then slip in the spoiler warning, the subject material discussed herein cover...

 
 
 

The Scoville Dewritos Challenge claims another victim.

Can't untaste. All-nighter delirium kind of made the flavor even more indescribably awful, on top of making me rambly and not entirely there. If you're wondering about the logo and the background Halo-age, I did this as a (poorly-chosen) vi...

 
 
 
 

Thank you, for bringing me here, for showing me Home.

Benjamin Rivers' Home is a game that didn't see the most timely release. Rolling out, originally, at the beginning of June, Home's 2-D, low-res, sprite-based horror risked some overshadowing by the long-awaited Lone Survivor, which finall...

 
 
 

Cheap Tricks II: Sugar rush boogaloo

Though I recently ran through some of the Halloween offerings on the free-to-play scene, some wallet-friendly haunts had yet to unveil their spookier side. Now that October 31st is nearly upon us, the few stragglers out there seem to have c...

 
 
 
 

Not fit for man, the beast.

(Some spoilers for the story of Tokyo Jungle follow. You know, if you're actually playing for the story. Mild spoilers for other games, too, that you may actually have heard of. Just sayin'.) There have been quite the number of deranged,...

 
 
 

The legacy of the (unlikely) wizard.

January, 2001. I remember it well. I was browsing the shelves at Funcoland, getting my hopes up with a birthday soon on the way, when some ethereal music caught my ear. Wandering over to a demo station bearing a Sega Dreamcast, a system I...

 
 
 
 

Slipping back to the shadows.

Since my earlier article discussing Slender and its spiritual progeny, the Slender Man's Shadow project, four more Slender Man's Shadow maps have seen release to the public. Having spent a decent amount of time with all of them, I figured...

 
 
 

Duke Nukem Forget-it (I wish I could.)

While the closure of Duke Nukem Forever's epically long dev cycle kept it from applicably sharing acronyms with Did Not Finish, there's still something to be said for the fact that its initials can also be applied to be Do Not Fuckingplay...

 
 
 

Without Slenderness, there's something missing.

Since its inception on the Something Awful boards back in 2009, the Slender Man mythos has been creeping its way across the internet's collective consciousness slowly but surely. With several Youtube series still in production, and more c...

 
 
 

Donning the lobster shirt.

Nearly seven years ago, I went back to a job with a grocery store I'd worked at years before, out of a desire to escape a night job that was killing me and not really paying what few bills I had, and to help out a former supervisor who'd bu...

 
 
 

Taters gonna tate.

Most recent amongst my gamer sins is having not played Portal 2 with any due timeliness. Thankfully, the latest Steam Summer Sale coincided with at time I actually had a few pennies to spare, and I picked up what was reportedly one of the g...

 
 
 

Dbumps in the Night - SCP-087

Dbumps in the Night is my weeknightly stream of scary/spooky games; here, I'll be doing complementary articles on my impressions of what I've played. I spent my evenings this past week with the five known freeware game takes on the tale ...

 
 
 
 

About nekobunone of us since 5:17 PM on 06.29.2007

Hi, I'm Chris, though I've been going by nekobun and variants thereof for so long, I kind of answer to both anymore.

While I've kind of got my own thing going in the realm of indie coverage, at least in the form of playing through (and streaming) (and writing about) the huge backlog I'm developing of games gleaned from various indie bundles, I try to keep my more mainstream, game-related features here, as well as opinion pieces on the industry at large, out of mad love for the 'toid. When I'm not rambling here or trying to be clever in comments threads, you can catch me rambling on Facebook and my Twitter, and trying to be clever in the Dtoid.tv chat.
