You probably shouldn't take pictures of strangers in public

People do dumb, silly, and strange things all the time. Sometimes they do it out in public. Now that everyone carries a little, inconspicuous camera with them, is it okay to snap a quick picture of these dumb, silly, and strange things? Tha...

Initial thoughts on Nintendo Switch

I love it when things slide into place and then click to fasten. Holy cow, that click on the Nintendo Switch. It's so gratifying. I will probably slide the Switch's Joy-Cons in and out, in and out, savoring each delicious snap. And I'm not ...

Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and Hamilton (for some reason)

Look, I didn't want this episode to be about the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton. I thought it would be a fun thing to briefly mention it as a show with good lyrics and an interesting premise. You can probably guess which of the core Po...

Thoughts on ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, and butt cancer

We took a week off to gather our chakras and set our crystals in neat rows, but the Podtoid crew is back. Actually, this episode was up on the Internet as early as Tuesday evening, but malevolent feng shui kept us from putting up a post not...

Let's talk all about PAX West 'cause it was a hell of a time

At PAX West this year, I made it a point to say "Beer for My Horses" as often as I could. I wasn't sure what the context was. I guess it's like how they say "Roll Tide" in the south. "You ready for that exam tomorrow?" "Roll Tide." "Johnny,...

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...

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...

Alright, let's talk about No Man's Sky

Well, shit. Everyone's talking about No Man's Sky. Every website has a million No Man's Sky articles up (including us, admittedly), all the social media sites are filled with interesting No Man's Sky pictures and videos -- so many...

Let's get wet with the Abzu Podtoid

Last week, I reviewed Abzu and wasn't completely taken with it. However, much of the games press seems to have loved it, so Brett Makedonski, Steven Hansen, and I dedicated a small Podtoid to it. By listening, you can better understand...

Talking about some of the best science fiction games

No Man's Sky is the big story these days, and it got us thinking about some of our favorite science fiction games and series over the years. There have been some good 'uns. Like the one with the space ship and the lasers! Classic. I won't s...

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...

Listen to our E3 predictions before every dang thing leaks

Anime was a mistake

Look, I don't name these things, so if you take umbrage with the meme, take it up with producer Kyle MacGregor. If you like the meme, well then give this podcast a listen, so long as you go in knowing we don't say much about anime. But we d...

Podtoid reviews Doom

Maybe the biggest gaming surprise of the year so far has been how excellent Doom turned out. Seriously, there was tremendous doubt all the way up until the minute it launched. Then, once the campaign starts, well, those concerns all me...

How DOES Darth Vader pull pud?

If you have phantasmal "force" magic, why would you manually crank off ever again when you could get a ghost handy, tickle your own prostate and force choke yourself all at the same time? Especially if you have cold mechano-hands like Darth...
