Video game development studio Red 5, best known as the company behind the online game Firefall, missed payroll last week and could not pay its staff on Christmas day, according to several people familiar with goings-on there.
Fallout 4 expects you to commit murder. While you can occasionally avoid killing others, the wasteland is ruthless and demands violence. That’s how Bethesda intended the game to be played, anyway—but clever players are finding ways around it.
Top dogs, 2015! As selected by the Kotaku staff...
When Square Enix brought Final Fantasy VI to PC last week, they brought with it a graphical overhaul that most fans can’t stand, complete with washed-out sprites and inconsistent tiling. It’s a bummer, to say the least.
Steam faced something of a catastrophe this afternoon, giving players across the world access to some of the personal information in other people’s accounts. It’s not yet clear how this happened, but it’s a doozy. Call it the Steam Winter Fail.
The big winter Steam sale sure appears to be Just Another Steam Sale, doesn’t it? A handful of Steam users, however, think it’s all a ruse. They believe they’ve found evidence of a secret Valve alternate reality game.
Games are usually straightforward. What you think happened is what actually happened. The Beginner’s Guide is different, cloaked in ambiguity. It’s led some people, albeit a small group, to theorize it literally represents a criminal act: stolen property. It’s a grave accusation, one that lives on because its designer…
If there’s one Dota hero that could wear Saitama’s super hero suit, it’s Tusk, the icy warrior with a giant fist and a “Walrus PUNCH” ultimate.
For some, weather might just seem like a small detail within Fallout 4. But for PC gamers, this environmental element is pretty damn important.
Batshit disaster factory masquerading as a (sometimes disappointing) video game Just Cause 3 is starting to get player-made mods. No one is safe. Case in point: here is a gun that fires air. Air that kills.
When you’re an innocent anthropomorphic animal accused of murder in 1840s France it doesn’t matter if your defense attorney has an insatiable hunger for worms, as long as he also has a thirst . . . for justice.
Not content with Valve’s own timetable for rolling out special events, a bunch of Team Fortress 2 fans have joined forces to make their own, called Workshop Wonderland. It’s pretty neat, but the highlight for me is this glorious Heavy x Gabe Newell pic.
There was a good chunk of time there when the Total War series was one of the best things on the PC. Its combination of real-time battles and turn-based planning made it a lot of people’s—mine included—perfect strategy game. Then along came Total War: Rome II.
The newest unlockable Batman costume in Arkham Knight doesn’t want your money. It wants your time, Caped Crusader. You don’t just have to complete the game to get it. You have to complete it at 240%.
Single-file lines. The world teaches us to stand in them, almost without thinking about it. Counter-Strike proposes an alternative: you really, really should just never do that.
If you check Steam, you’ll notice that the big Steam winter sale kicked off today. It’s got a couple good deals, a bunch more alright ones, and... that’s kinda it. No big game-like event, no real frills, no surprises. Just like the autumn sale before it. Is it just me, or are Steam sales getting kinda boring?
After a long and emotionally trying development process, That Dragon, Cancer comes out on January 12, delivering an interactive biographical portrait of a family’s fight against childhood cancer.
Although the Heart of Stone expansion’s collector’s edition had some nice physical Gwent cards, Waffleguru’s version of the addictive mini-game is much more ambitious than that.
It’s no surprise that the pogo stick is a hidden item in Just Cause 3, when you can casually bounce on someone’s face with it and ascend to the stars, at the same time.
Because your murderous wasteland rampage needs a little extra something, don’t you think?
