Warren Spector says virtual reality will be a fad, “at best a minor part of gaming’s future.” Far be it from me to question the director of Deus Ex on, well, anything. But I’m not sure it matters whether VR is a fad. Motion controls were a fad, yet that fad drove the sales of 100 million Wii consoles.
Have you encountered a bug, glitch, or hack while playing Steam’s hottest new dinosaur game? You might be sitting on $100.
Harley Quinn’s one of the most popular new Batman characters to appear in the last few years. She’s finally playable in Arkham Knight, starring in what serves as a prequel to the story in the main game. But, despite being a free add-on, the story pack starring the Joker’s sometime girlfriend isn’t worth the time it…
You don’t have to look very far to find references to the Man of Steel in Gotham—Arkham Knight is bursting with Superman easter eggs.
Batman: Arkham Knight still doesn’t run well on PC, and it’s not clear when (or if) that might change anytime soon. The public statements from Warner Bros. aren’t helping matters, either.

Dark Souls 3 was only just announced, but that hasn’t stopped players (and yours truly) from coming up with some theories about what’s going on.
Counter-Strike’s most popular map, Dust2, has been around since 2001, making it more than a decade old.
Even if you’re a ninja billionaire with a massive underground cave, diving into a beefy title like Batman: Arkham Knight can be daunting. Think of Kotaku as your Alfred, delivering helpful info to your pointy ears. Read our tips, Master Bruce, and woe betide anyone who stands in your way.
When The Evil Within came out last year, one of the points of controversy was the game’s gigantic letterboxing during gameplay. Today, Bethesda announced there’s an official patch with the option to remove letterboxing on every version of the game. Weird!
Not all PC ports are created equal, and Batman: Arkham Knight seems to be an especially bad one. The morning after the PC version unlocked, Warner Bros. confirmed it’s working on fixes.

Naked Trevor is Trevor in his prime. Here is the proof. (NSFW warning.)
As part of this whole running-a-site-dedicated-to-Steam gig, I check for new releases every day. Last week, a peculiar thing happened: there were hardly any. At all.
There’s always a dissonance when one of the most promising new games you see at E3 is also one of the least traditionally “exciting” ones.
True story: my initial reaction to the Dishonored 2 reveal last week was, embarrassingly, ‘who is Emily?’ I had apparently forgotten a good chunk of Dishonored since its release in 2012. So, here’s me freshing up on the game before the sequel comes out.
