What are some of the best console revisions of all-time?

Have you heard tell of this new PlayStation 4? It's slimmer and, uh, not as good looking. That's all according to the many many leaks that have hit the Internet this week. It won't be officially announced until September 7 -- two weeks...   read

What minigames are better than the games they're in?

We had a fabulous question this week that ended up comprising the bulk of our conversation in this, the slow season for games, and that is: which minigames actually surpass the game they're housed within, like an 8 ball hidden within a matr...   read

Minutes after I started No Man's Sky last night, I was tasked with finding a wealth of Heridium. The scanner pulled one up that was a six-minute walk. Off I went, collecting resources and analyzing animals along the way. Six minutes se...   read

What are our personal least favorite 10/10 games?

Games get perfect 10 scores from time to time. It's not often, and it's usually only the truly special ones that reach this peak. Those games clearly meant a lot to the reviewers who played them. But, on occasion, those of us who aren't tas...   read

The worst games we've been forced to play

Levity isn't necessarily a strong suit for this week's Podtoid. Don't let the title fool you; we talk about some of the worst games we've ever had to review, funerals, funerals again, and Darren's snake collection. All bad things. Even thou...   read

What were some of the most underrated games of the last generation?

Against our better judgment, the Podtoid crew can sometimes be capable of talking about video games. Sometimes. It's kind of hard to talk about current games right now because of this dang summer drought that we're stuck in. So, we decided ...   read
