Vita Could Have Been Switch, but Sony Fumbled the Bag

This March marks 5 years since the launch of the Nintendo Switch, one of the most successful video game systems of all time. It will also be the 2-year anniversary of the PlayStation Vita's discontinuation. A decade after it hit Wester...


A few of these are definitely staged/over acted, but I stand by my belief that 343 Guilty Spark is a master class in game design. Getting to see this level through fresh eyes was a real treat. I wish I could re-experience it all over again


RIP PlayStation Now. Spartacus news seemingly imminent? Possibly?


The market reaction to the Zynga acquisition announcement is... well...


People dragging this on the Bird App but I unironically want a dark, direct prequel to Gen I focusing on the Pokemon Wars


Aight, my uncle gave it his blessing, I'm gonna watch Arcane lol. I know literally nothing about this IP but I'll let you know how it goes...


PSA: If you're like me, you have Game Pass, just finished downloading ME Legendary Edition, and are wondering how all 3 games + DLC were only 25GB. Well, they're not: ME2&3 need to be installed separately from within the game (which is 94GB total)


So Sony announced a new piece of hardware (PSVR2) with a spin off in a major franchise (Horizon) that is already getting a "real" release this year (Forbidden West). Did they learn nothing from Vita?


This was a depressing read. I worry some folks will make the mistake of framing Ken Levine as as a unique problem, when he's really just a hyperbole for most of the industry: game directors make for shit managers


In an effort to avoid a second date w/ Rona, I'm home bound for the evening. It's just after 7pm ET. What % you think I can get in Super Mario World before 2022? (Price is Right Rules lol)


You get 1 wish to make any game you want release tomorrow: a new sequel, a remake, a remaster/re-release of an old/lost game, something cancelled/vaporware, or even just a game that's years from launch. What is your pick? Here is (obviously) mine:


Oh so we doing GOTY lists today? Okie doke! Here's mine. Biggest thing that stands out to me? Other than GotG and Alan Wake, everything new I played this year came from Game Pass...


As some of y'all know, I work for a regulator, so lemme tell you from first hand experience that this part of the Riot settlement (which Eric touched on in his article) is easily the most significant and impactful


Sincere question for those who've praised the story of FF14: how is it good? Like, as an MMO, you're one character in a world of millions of players, no? Is it that the plot/lore is good as an observer, like you're watching a movie play out?


Merry Christmas from Tsushima


Honestly just give this man whatever he asks for. Shit, if he wants to have a cagefight with Chris Pratt to decide who gets to voice Mario, I say let him


A buddy of mine loves the recent AC games (I loved the old ones) so he bought me Origins and Odyssey as a gift. I'm several hours into Origins and man -- this is really just a wildly inferior version of Ghost of Tsushima, huh?


I thought Witcher season 1 was good not great, and I had little experience w/ the franchise before that, but god damn this 2nd season is excellent. Absolutely worth the 2yr wait. Get on this shit asap if you haven't started yet


PSA for anyone considering buying FF7R on PC


Watching a documentary about a Halo game that was delayed a year, had half its content scrapped and rebuilt, entailed insane crunch, and had a ton of technical issues. Damn. History is cyclical, huh?


Okay. Balancing my optimism with some realistic expectations, here's what I wish/expect Sony to do with its "Spartacus" streaming service. Thoughts?


Man, this Analogue Pocket thing is pretty cool! Buying one and getting a collection of carts seems kinda expensive tho? Shame no none makes a portable system where you can buy these old games digitally? Like a... virtual... console?


Ok. That's Halo Infinite beat. Just waiting on the level select patch for 100%. Monotonous open world bullshit aside, the "real" levels + plot are easy the best Halo in a decade (or more). 343 has finally -- FINALLY -- righted the ship here


Please god I am begging, no Destiny style, "MMO-lite but in SP" bullshit in Alan Wake 2. It is the reason why Control dropped from genuinely good to mediocre. Just give me real ass survival horror. I do not need world event alerts, I promise


Halo Infinite is maybe the most conflicted I've ever been about a game. The core gunplay is -- no lie -- the best the franchise has ever seen, Bungie titles included. But this open world shit is... really not good?

I'm an (aging) dude who plays games and comments about stuff. Been on Dtoid since 2010-ish, back during the Jim Sterling days, though this account's a bit newer than that. Don't post on the FP anymore but you can find me on Qtoid and the Cblogs.

I also stream on Twitch sometimes, if you're interested:
