Hyper Light Drifter's Teddy Diefenbach is joining Square Enix

These days, it's not uncommon to hear the standard "going indie" story. A game developer works for a big studio for X number of years, tires of the grind and/or the lack of creative freedom, saves up some cash to break away from his or her ...   read

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...   read

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...   read

Review: Zenge

Most modern puzzle games go heavy on the logic/deduction/critical thinking. Some of them are so difficult the average person can't complete them without looking up a guide. On the other end of the spectrum, zen games take a more laid-back a...   read

Battleborn's 'motion comic' prequel series is complete

Battleborn is set on a cool premise: there is one star left in the universe and all spacefaring species have converged on it as the last place where life can be sustained. I had previously assumed it was meant to take place in the ultra-dis...   read

Battleborn DLC could give hints for Borderlands 3

We're on the cusp of the release of Battleborn, Gearbox's hobby-grade meta-growth shooter. Since it's still an unproven IP and Gearbox's other releases have been less than stellar, the game most on the mind of the people in the room at...   read

Sentinels of the Multiverse dev wants to add in all current tabletop expansions

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...   read

How can Slippy Toad be slippy if uncle Grippy Toad is grippy?

Devolver-published #SelfieTennis looks, uh, weird
