Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...   read

This long distance parry in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is amazing

GirKart64's video shows just how far you can push the limits of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Attempting to set a record for farthest parry, they walk all the way up a mountain, get in clear view of a Guardian, and let it rip. It's not so much...   read

AMD boss hypes the hell out of Fallout 4 VR

[If you want the Fallout 4 mod in the header, you can grab it here!] Look, I've played tons of great games on every major VR platform, but I'm not delusional about how it's failed to latch on to the industry at large. Maybe one day if enoug...   read

Square Enix is reprinting the original NieR in Europe

It doesn't hold up nearly as well mechanically, but if you dug the narrative themes of NieR: Automata, you'll probably dig the original NieR. The problem is that it's super hard to find at a standard retail price, as Square Enix stopped pri...   read

So let's talk about Hainly Abrams from Mass Effect: Andromeda

Usually, when looking over my Dtoid emails, I'm content to watch the main staff do their thing. This includes controversial topics that I must later brace myself to help moderate alongside the rest of the community team, so it's rare that I...   read

Trails of Cold Steel 1, 2 are finally PC-bound

When I search for headers, I Google the name in Japanese to get unique screens (but that's my secret; don't tell anyone else). What came up for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold 2 was a lot of romancin'. Like those heroines, the PC ...   read

Watch Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory's first electrofunky trailer

Slightly odd to call this an "announcement" trailer since we've known about this game for some time, but it's the first one I suppose. Electronic beats jazz over a first glimpse at gameplay and environments. Digital worlds and electronic m...   read
