This is Samsung’s Notebook Odyssey, “designed specifically with gamers in mind”. It can take that off-kilter touchpad and get the fuck out of here.
“Pa,” said the girl, “famine took everything from us, and disease the rest. Also the other day a pack of wolves plain stole old man Edwards, and they didn’t even ‘splain what they was plannin’ to use him fer.” The father studied his daughter, gaunt but strong, face hollowed by months of uncertainty. “The video games,…
Catacomb Kids is a mix between a roguelike and a platformer, with equal parts magic potions and goomba stomps. You can also chop body parts off pretty much everything. It’s one heck of a challenge and a damn Cool Indie Game.
Sometimes you’ll find yourself out of the house, with nothing but a laptop and a whole lot of time. And while laptops are getting more and more powerful, most are still low-spec machines when it comes to gaming.
Mafia III’s perspective on racial tensions in the United States is something rarely seen in games. Accordingly, some reviewers have argued that the actual gameplay of Mafia III wasn’t nearly as innovative as the narrative. While I agree that Mafia III’s narrative takes more risks than the gameplay, the two function as…
Thomas Barber Coberly died, without warning, on May 1st, 2016, at exactly 7:04 in the morning. A heart attack, or maybe an aneurysm. It really doesn’t matter, at this point. The ambulance came promptly, but he died shortly after arriving at the hospital.
In a video from December 30, 2016, CNN used footage from Fallout’s hacking mini-game as B-roll to illustrate reports of recent, real-life hacks committed by the Russian government.
Taken on their own, individual Steam reviews don’t offer a whole lot of value. But taken together, they spin a yarn about a game that’s equal parts fascinating, weird, and occasionally funny.
It’s officially winter. Deep Winter. You know what that means: Steam Sale.
Last month, Valve revealed its first-ever Steam Awards. They came with a twist: a final category to be plucked from user submissions, many of which ended up being tongue-in-cheek. Now Valve’s revealed their selections, and sorry, but no: none of them acknowledge fans’ many write-ins of “the game most in need of a…
The fourth installment of WayForward Technologies’ Shantae series launches today, and the half-genie’s latest shape-shifting platforming adventure looks as good as it plays.
OK, so there are parts of The Witcher 3 where it’s already snowing, but this mod brings snow to almost the entire map. Merry Christmas, you drifters in from Temeria.
I finished Dishonored 2 last weekend and immediately jumped into a New Game Plus. Turns out it’s a fantastic, downright essential addition to the game.
If you play games, you’ve thought about which voice actor you want to narrate your daily goings-on. For me, it’s GLaDOS. She’s reciting a fruit tart recipe. For Kotaku reader Chad Oliver, it’s The Stanley Parable’s Kevan Brighting, and he’s narrating his marriage proposal.
The massive total conversion mod for Skyrim, Enderal, is getting DLC that will add 10 to 20 hours of quest content. It’s scheduled to arrive sometime in 2017.
I’m a staunch defender of Telltale’s The Walking Dead’s less popular second season. It served as a sort of zombie bildungsroman for Clementine, a coming of age story after the end. But for all the season’s strong character beats, it lacked a sense of forward momentum. The third season, A New Frontier, breathes some…
Three of us on staff have been playing Watch Dogs 2. Two of us have finished it. We figured it was a good time to chat about the good and bad of the game. There was a lot to consider! Bonus: We may accidentally wandered into a discussion about why one of us is very, very hard to please.
The Long Dark just received its biggest update of the year, “Resolute Outfitter.” It adds new clothing items and clothing stats, as well as the ability to visualize what your character is wearing. There’s also a new region, frostbite, and more.
