A little more than 10 years ago, not long after I quit my job to become a freelance writer, a colleague warned me that sometimes the work could be grueling and unrewarding. “I want to talk to you when you’re writing a story only for money,” he said. It took a decade, but I finally found that assignment: reviewing Mad…
Don’t worry, it’s only Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. Or maybe worry. Up to you. Mind the video filled with pixel penis.
We’re always on the lookout for games that take advantage of the latest PC hardware and although our game performance reviews have included major series such as Battlefield, BioShock, Crysis and Far Cry, we haven’t tested any Metal Gear games despite the franchise’s age and the number of titles it encompasses.
Lets say you’re playing a video game and you encounter a teammate who is very obviously cheating—we’re talking, impossible headshots, the ability to see through walls, the works. What do you do?
Have you heard of Nova-111? I barely had, but now I must show it to you. It’s a wonderful surprise of a video game. It’s partially turn-based, partially real-time. It’s action mixed with puzzles. Its on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Vita, PC and Mac and is coming to Wii U. It just came out. It’s terrific.
Not everyone was happy with the love triangle at the center of 2015’s hottest dating sim, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Fortunately, the game’s developers have been listening.
There’s a cutscene, late in Metal Gear Solid V, that’s ostensibly serious but contains a musical interlude so awkward it sent me into giggle fits. A dozen missions later, there’s a harrowing sequence that ranks among the best video game scenes I’ve ever played. If you don’t know how to reconcile those two things,…
Arkham Knight, a PC game so broken that its publisher Warner Bros. had to withdraw it from sale, was released in June. It’s taken until September, but a patch to (hopefully) fix it is rolling out now.
Maybe you’ll like Mad Max more than Kotaku’s Chris Suellentrop did, and if you’re gonna be playing on the PC, I’ve got some good news.
Things have been kinda rough lately.
You may have seen the news today that The Witcher 3 has sold well over 6 million copies. Impressive! We don’t normally like to talk about raw sales figures here on Kotaku, but I think there’s a lesson to be learned from this particular success.
Point Lookout is one of those add-ons that sticks with you. In a world where downloadable content is often forgettable, Bethesda crafted an interesting new addition to Fallout 3 and populated it with some of the best quests they’ve ever produced.
Sometimes I think a golden age of DLC was kicked off by The Ballad of Gay Tony for Grand Theft Auto IV. Minerva’s Den for BioShock 2, Freedom Cry for Assassin’s Creed IV, Left Behind for The Last of Us, and maybe even Burial at Sea for BioShock Infinite were all expansions that matched, or even exceeded in some ways,…
Rocket League is coming to SteamOS, and it’s free if you buy a Steam Machine, Steam Link, or Steam Controller. The car soccer sensation is great fun in split screen, so the pairing makes perfect sense. Also, it’s sold one million copies on Steam alone. I get the impression that maybe people like it a little.
I’ve seen a handful of video-game-themed marriage proposals in my day, but this one takes the cake.
If what I saw during an hour session of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is any indication, the RPG sequel is gonna make you really mad at your friends.
Grand Theft Auto V resident berdu captures a Reaper creepily hovering over Los Santos, thanks to a new mod that infuses a little Mass Effect into Rockstar’s game.
Well, we can add Splatoon to the lengthy list of Skyrim mods.
