Would you buy a Switch Joy Con that has its own screen?

Nintendo has made it clear that they aren't planning to make a revised version of the Switch any time soon. That said, they still love to find new ways for people to use the console, with their Nintendo Labo initiative being a recent exampl...


Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus is messy fun

Living in the Dtoid house with Niero, Jon Carnage, and Tara Long, with daily visits from Max Scoville, was one of the most fun times of my life. We were all such different personalities, all united under a common love of video games. Out of...


Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...


How should Bayonetta look in Bayonetta 3?

Bayonetta 1 & 2 were just released on Switch, which means that soon enough, Sega, Nintendo and Platinum will start rolling out more information on Cereza's next big adventure. As for right now everything we know about the game comes fro...


The Switch is still scheduled to be skewered by 1001 Spikes

When people argue about game difficulty, most of the time what they're really arguing about is if said game was properly marketed to the same people who would end up enjoying it. Cuphead looks like a cute, simple 2D platformer, but it's act...


Nintendo Direct Mini shows off new ports, sports and fighters

Without pre-announcement or fanfare, Nintendo just posted a 10+ minute direct showing off new games and DLC for the Switch and 3DS. Highlights include an HD port of The World Ends With You for Switch, two new DLC characters (Aegislash and ...

It's time to pray for Chibi-Robo

[This piece was originally published in 2015. In light of recent rumors about the next Nintendo Direct and an ensuing eyebrow-raising tweet from Nintendo of America today, it just felt right to revive it. -Jordan] Chibi-Robo is a refugee fr...


Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition is my GOTY of 2017

There were a lot of games I loved this year -- Battle Chef Brigade, Cuphead, Ghosts 'N Homunculi, GoNNER, Million Onion Hotel, Puyo Puyo Tetris, River City Ransom: Underground, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, Splatoon 2, The En...


Why did The End is Nigh on Switch keep all the f-bombs?

The "Hang in there" kitten became a cultural icon for a reason. Sure, many say they only liked the poster ironically, but whether we want to admit it or not, the image of an innocent, desperate little animal hanging onto life by one paw is...


Owlboy artist makes playable mock-up for new Mega Man game

[Update: Simon wants you to know that he is not making a Mega Man game right now. Sorry if this post led to any confusion! I still hope he makes one though, even if it's just a couple of levels...] It's Mega Man's 30th birthday and Capcom ...


What's wrong with the run animation in Mega Man 11?

Running walking animations are easy to take for granted. When they do their job right, they look too natural to ever grab your attention while still adding energy and personality to the character. While it may look primitive now, the origin...


Unearthed Sweet Home commercial has a very grabby torso

Sweet Home is the weird, ugly step-father of the Resident Evil series. Never to be sold outside of Japan, the game's mix of Dragon Quest-influenced mechanics and brutal, feel bad aesthetics weren't likely to find much of an audience on the...


Okinawa Rush could get a taste of The Baz if we're lucky

I've seen a lot of great rushes come and go over the years. Sonic Rush, Sugar Rush, San Francisco Rush: 2049, Rush, and of course, August Rush are just few off the top of my head. With the rush market already over saturated to th...
