Silent Hill Toast, Fallout Food, and Frontier Expectations

Happy Friday, friends! It’s that time of the week again where we take a step back and take a look at some of the biggest and best features that have appeared on TheGamer over the past seven days.

We have a bit of a theme with this week’s selections – food. Well, okay, two of them are about food, but it’s weird that it happened twice, isn’t it? Hope you’ve had something to eat before you check out the insanely named “fuck toast,” or some of the best food the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout has to offer.

On the other side of things, we get a deep dive into PAX East 2022 and how being a smaller event was actually a good thing, and a look at the future of Sonic and Mario. As one of them would say, let’s go.


PAX East 2022 was a refreshingly intimate affair between gamers and independents

Let’s start with something timely and take a trip to Boston with editor Eric Switzer. Eric attended this year’s PAX East and found it to be a much smaller affair than previous years. Ultimately, though, that’s not a bad thing at all and actually bought out the best of PAX by encouraging visitors to try out some of the more unique games on offer. Oh, and Shredder’s Revenge was there, which is an instant win.

I did the guy who designed Pyramid Head’s “F***k Toast” and it blew my mind

Hope you’ve had lunch before reading this next article from feature editor Andy Kelly, which involves him creating something that his creator Masahiro Ito, the designer of Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head, likes to call “fuck toast “. Andy puts on his chef’s hat and makes the expletive toast, which features bread, butter, honey, and Sichuan pepper, ending with a reaction you’ll have to read to believe. Sounds damn good, doesn’t it?

The most delicious food to eat in the Fallout series

Next, let’s stick with the food theme and take a look at feature editor Khee Hoon Chan’s deep dive into the most delicious food in the Fallout series. That’s right, despite the post-apocalyptic setting, Fallout actually has some pretty tasty snacks, including Sugar Bombs, Happy Pies, and Brahmin Wellington. Not too sure I want to go eat Deathclaw Omelette or Imitation Strange Meat Pie though. If you want the flip side, Khee Hoon Chan also took a look at the series’ worst food.

Mario Movie Delay Gives Us More Time To Get Over The Cast List

One of the biggest news from the past week is that the Super Mario Bros. has been postponed to next year. TheGamer editor Stacey Henley says that’s a good thing, as it will give us the time we need to get over the much-talked-about cast list. From good like Anya Taylor Joy as Peach and Charlie Day as Luigi, to weird like Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, to controversial like Chris Pratt as Mario, Stacey argues the delay should make it all a little less weird. With a bit of luck.

Please don’t be surprised if Sonic Frontiers is terrible

Finally, let’s end with Feature Editor Jade King delivering the gospel truth – don’t be surprised if Sonic Frontiers ends up being terrible. Look, we’ve all been flying over Sonic’s pinnacle of success lately, but Jade says we shouldn’t just forget about Sonic’s background now that something new and shiny is on the horizon. Nowhere is that clearer than with Sonic’s 3D games and, uh-oh, Frontiers is going to be another.
