Get hard, Sega Hard, this October

Can you believe it's been 15 weeks since the last entry in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise was released? What's taking so long? If the past few months without your waifu have been excruciating, fret not. Idea Factory Interna...   read

Fantastic sci-fi 4x board game Eclipse is coming to PC

One of 2011's hottest board games was Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy. It blended classic space 4X gameplay with a European-style board game mechanic governing the economy. I was fortunate enough to get a copy during its initial print run,...   read

Battleborn's 27th hero Pendles releases on August 4

It has been almost two months since the release of Alani, the Eldrid healer and 26th Battleborn hero. The small community of people still invested in Gearbox's FPS/MOBA have spent a lot of that time wondering "When are we going to get Pendl...   read

Three new Battleborn multiplayer maps coming this Thursday

Battleborn just celebrated the Lootpocalypse (recently extended for another week), wherein bosses were dropping legendary gear more frequently and loot packs cost less in-game currency to purchase. It had the effect of filling up the c...   read

These new Final Fantasy XV screens show it's all about brodowns and throwdowns

With little more than three months left before Final Fantasy XV releases, we've come to know what we should expect from it. Or, at least in the early-going. Things could (and very well might!) drastically change, but that starting stuf...   read

Fresh Berserk Musou screens show some action

After officially revealing Berserk Musou last week with a fairly bizarre trailer (that is totally comfortable and safe to view in a public space), Koei Temco has finally shared what I'm really interested in from a Berserk game – scene...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 features big names from the community

After the most recent episode of Minecraft: Story Mode, I'm looking forward to the new direction for the series. Simple, one-off episodes seem to fit better than an overwrought multi-episode arc. The sixth episode releases next week beginni...   read

New Yooka-Laylee details and 'representative' screenshots

It has been almost a year since the Kickstarter for Banjo-Kazooie-like Yooka-Laylee closed, but studio Playtonic has been mostly quiet about it, aside from the occasional new character reveal. Today the studio let loose some screenshots "re...   read

Gorgeous adventure game The Song of Seven releases today

I'm not big on adventure games, but I've just played a bit of The Song of Seven: Chapter One that releases today on Steam and I'm in love with its art style and character designs. Plus, who couldn't possibly love goat-like creatures th...   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

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

Sentinels of the Multiverse is an interesting game for a couple of reasons. For one, cooperative card games can be a good time no matter the subject matter; just chill with some friends while you see if you can collectively best an inanimat...   read

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

I'm liking the new, hotter Watson in Sherlock Homes: The Devil's Daughter

Devolver-published #SelfieTennis looks, uh, weird

We've all known for a while that for virtual reality to take off, it needs to facilitate playing with oneself. Developer VR Unicorns perhaps took that advice too literally and built a game about playing tennis, except you continuously telep...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

Zen fish adventure Koi will be the first Chinese-developed game on PS4
