Late last year, it was revealed that Link would become a racer in Mario Kart 8. But that wasn’t his first Mario rodeo. Nor was it the first time Zelda crossed over into the Mario series—far from it.
Between my keyboard-centric posts here on Kotaku and my Twitter feed, I’ve been posting a lot of pictures of very pretty keyboards lately, which leads to people asking me where they can buy those keyboards. For the most part, you can’t. You have to build them.
This is A Mind Is Born, a demo of the Commodore 64 going haywire. It won first place at the Oldskool 4K Intro competition at this past week’s Revision 2017 event and it’s easy to see why.
Spring has sprung, but probably, so have your allergies. Stay inside. Drink some iced tea. Watch our remarkably good picks for this season’s anime.
Elizabeth E. looted everything in Fallout 3’s Raven Rock. She collected three units of vodka, five stealth devices, four cuts of mirelurk meat and 88 Stimpacks, which weighed her down a considerable 3,169 pounds. Her pack was so heavy that traveling from Raven Rock to Fort Independence took four hours. She was…
You’re heading to the store to get a PS4 right now, and need to know which games to get. (Keep your eyes on the road, please!) Or you’re home, all set up, realizing you want more stuff to play. Or maybe you’re suiting up for a battle in the console war, applying your facepaint and trying to remember which games will…
First, there were snakes on a plane. Then, we had sharks in tornadoes. Now, there is a darker and more prevalent combination of pests and unlikely places they exist: cockroaches in your PS4.
Between a catalog of killer games on the Genesis and the Archie Comic series, Sonic the Hedgehog was a fixture of my childhood. At the height of Sonic mania, there was a handful of cartoon shows. My favorite was based on the comics and is now affectionately called Sonic SatAM. But is it as good as I remember?
Yesterday, on Easter, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson chased his daughter around the house wearing a Pikachu costume. And how did you celebrate? Eggs?
The mods transform Grand Theft Auto V into a bloodbath of surreal, familial dysfunction. Like the “Look Who’s Purging Now” episode from season 2, but way more fucked up.
Persona 5 stars a group of Phantom Thieves who go on heists to steal the twisted desires of targets in the land of Tokyo’s collective unconscious, the Metaverse. The main characters also get a costume change in these heists. Persona 5’s protagonist doesn’t talk in the game, but they say everything you need to know…
In December of 2016, Nintendo launched a program with HackerOne, a service that provides bounties ranging from $100 to $20,000 for finding bugs and exploits, in order to stamp them out on the 3DS. This program has since been extended to the Switch, and so far has awarded three people with bounties. While some members…
During Japan’s version of the Nintendo Direct held earlier today, a new game in the Senran Kagura series—Refure—was announced for the Switch.
Unique to the digital age is the video content creation industry, one where employees are “users” and employers are “platforms.” In it, workers aren’t owed squat. When there are tech issues, they can visit the support page. When there are platform updates, a lot of the time, the press knows first. Full-time YouTubers…
The debut trailer for EA’s Battlefront II has leaked out a little early, showing that not only will the next game feature units and heroes from the prequel trilogy, but from Force Awakens as well.
Rock Band was great, but Rock Band was also awkward and cumbersome. Now here comes Rock Band VR, a few years after most of us got rid of our last plastic instrument. It’s also cumbersome, and it’s also great. In fact, it’s the most fun I’ve had with Rock Band in years.
One minute my five-year-old was giggling along with the playful antics of Yooka-Laylee on the PlayStation 4. The next he was in Persona 5, erasing over 35 hours of Phantom thievery in the blink of an eye. It’s the closest I’ve come to crying over a video game in years.
Things get weird on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s desert world of Eos when you start pushing the Nomad over 160 kilometers per hour. As several players have reported on Reddit, the glitch happens while zooming around the planet’s surface at high speeds.
