Marvel has ventured into the podcastiverse with Wolverine: The Long Night, an SVU-style crime drama complete with cults, a serial killer, and Easter eggs for X-Men fans. It’s clearly for a specific audience that enjoys comic book stories, podcasts, and true crime. Luckily, I sit at the center of that Venn Diagram, so…
Imagine there’s a video game that you’ve played for hundreds and hundreds of hours. It’s the only game you really play. You think you’ve seen everything there is, and then one day, you see a YouTube video, or a thread on Reddit, or maybe a tweet. Someone says they’ve found something new. Someone says they’ve found a…
The Futurama gang reunited for a scripted radio drama taking us back to New New York for the first time in over four years. And as exciting as it was to hear Fry, Leela, Bender, and everybody else on their epic space adventures, the whole thing really doesn’t work unless you’re a freakishly major fan of podcasts.
The last episode of Futurama ended with Fry lovingly asking his wife Leela if she’d like to “go around again,” and now it looks like they’re going to. Nerdist has paired with the creators of the show to create a brand new radio play that ties into the show’s latest mobile game.
Insomniac CEO Ted Price joins us on today’s Kotaku Splitscreen to talk about virtual reality, what it’s like to be a CEO at E3, and how the Spider-Man PS4 game came together.
Wait, you don’t know about the three seashells? It’s a reference to the 1993 film Demolition Man. Observe.
One of Prey’s biggest strengths is how it realizes the inhabitants of the space station Talos-1, and on today’s Kotaku Splitscreen, we talk to the man responsible for many of them: Chris Avellone.
Last month, Republicans put your internet privacy on the chopping block and on Monday, Trump dropped the axe on it. That seems like not a small thing to do, but then the U.S. bombed Syria and now that everyone is muttering “nuclear war” between panic attacks at work and contacting stress ulcers the size Trump’s head.…
The Voice of Night Vale is opening up about being diagnosed with HIV, and shutting down stigmas about living with the disease.
Powerhouse producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, Aliens, The Terminator) just debuted her latest TV project, Hunters, on Syfy. But that doesn’t mean she’s taking it easy. Next on her slate is Lore, a horror anthology show adapted from a popular podcast that investigates the true origins of spooky legends,…
Recently, an app called Peeple got a whole lot of attention for trying to be the Yelp for Humans. But it’s just one in a really long line of apps that try to apply consumer reviews to people.
Every time you go from one country to the next, you cross a border. And that usually means dealing with some kind of border agency that enforces each country’s idiosyncratic rules and regulations. But what if the whole process were standardized and run by a single organization?
A lot of researchers are thinking about how to genetically engineer crops and food animals to help them withstand post-climate change heat and parched conditions. But what about genetically engineering humans to slow our constant carbon contributions?
I was surfing through Itunes the other day when I came across a surprise gem. Stray Ami is a podcast similar to the rather ubiquitous Welcome to Nightvale, in that every episode tells a continuous narrative, rather than your usual podcast format of hosted interviews or full-cast dramas. In many ways, however, it’s…
Nick Baggarly is Zero South’s expedition leader and creative mastermind. He’s driven around the world multiple times, and has a new project in which he’ll be taking some incredible, fully custom-built, alt-fuel Hummer H1s to the South Pole to raise awareness for the need to clean up global car fleets
Need to get from New York to Paris? Or San Diego? Chances are, you’re hopping on a plane. But commercial flights aren’t just annoying and expensive — they also input a ton of carbon into the environment, contributing to climate change. So what if we stopped flights to save the planet? What would happen next?
We all want to be our best selves. But what if you could add almost anything to your body and mind? A camera here, an exoskeleton there. This is the world that some biohackers imagine—one in which humans can extend their abilities beyond the limits biology has set for us. But what does that world look like?
We often think of stars as twinkling, harmless little points of light that fill our night sky with majesty. But stars can be dangerous too. When they come to the end of their lifespan, some stars explode fantastically as supernovae. So what would happen if one of those giant explosions happened nearby?
