Dragon’s Dogma didn’t get the kindest review on Kotaku when it came out in 2012 for consoles. With the PC version arriving on Steam tomorrow, it’s an opportunity for me to mount a defense for one of my favorite flawed games of the last few years.

I hadn’t heard about The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human until a few minutes ago, but apparently it comes out on January 19?! Looks a bit like In The Hunt, combined with Metroid and Shadow of the Colossus? Nice combo! Here’s a trailer.
Steam’s big winter sale included an alternate reality game that... really wasn’t. After following a rather unsatisfying breadcrumb trail, players unlocked a Steam badge titled “Red Herring.” Very funny, Valve. Now, though, joke’s on them.
I think maybe Kylo Ren has a taste for blood after the end of The Force Awakens...
A whole round of Rainbow Six environmental destruction with LEGO counter-terrorist operators, made by YouTubers Blacksheep Pictures.
To The Moon, the 2011 story game that made everyone cry, is finally getting a sequel. Titled Finding Paradise, it’s about traversing the memories of another dying patient to fulfill their last wish.
