Would hip teens think Sonic Mania is good?

PUBG's first-person mode can be creepy at times

And I don't just mean the Assassin's Creed-esque face! Brett and I partnered up for a few rounds of first-person mode, and the end result felt like a mix between a walking sim as we combed over houses and survival horror as the weather took...

Daddy Yankee would be a PUBG god

Three's company, but four's a squad in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. At least that's how it typically goes when the D-Team gets together. This time around, Steven "Lipovka Lover" Hansen ditched Brett, Jordan, and me in favor of drinking te...

What original Xbox game are you most excited to play again?

What is the hardest game you have ever played?

Sitting on my desk right now are unopened copies of Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2. Having just got a PlayStation 4, I’m playing a bit of catch up with some of the games I’ve missed over its life. I’ve never played a Dark Sou...

So what's up with the ending to Miitopia?

The 3DS’s days may be numbered, but the plucky little handheld isn’t ready to call it quits just yet. Today it’s seeing the release of two new first-party games in Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. Both are cute, late-in-the-game ...

George Miller needs to make a video game

Last week, the cinema world lost one of its giant giants. I refer to George A. Romero as a giant giant for two reasons: 1) He basically invented an entire genre of film, and 2) the motherfucker was 6’4”. Goddamn that is tall. If...

Who would be video games' press secretary?

It has been a slow week for video games, so this episode of Podtoid is mostly just the crew talking about whatever come to mind. One topic was who the press secretary for video games would be. Our guess is Dorito Pope himself Geoff Keighley...
