In 2014, 2K Sports promised that if their NBA2K Twitter account ever reached one million followers that players would receive a sweet bonus. Well, that day has finally arrived, and the bonus is...not sweet.
Given the tone of the game, when I played through XCOM 2 I customised my soldiers with “grim realism” in mind. Those who prefer to get a little silly with their cannon fodder, though, might enjoy the game’s new Anarchy’s Children DLC, which introduces new customisation options for your troops.
From the very first game in the Civilization series through to today, India’s supposedly-peaceful leader Gandhi has been famous for one thing: dropping nukes. And there’s a very good reason for it.
An XCOM soldier missing a nearby target? No way!
I used to be the slowest XCOM player on Earth. Then XCOM 2 happened.
If you ever look at your day job and think, self, I could be making more money, then maybe you oughta consider a career in video game sports tattoo litigation.
I used to think that it was just nostalgia, screwing with my memory. But when I did a side-by-side comparison, there was no comparison at all.
Mafia 3 made its first appearance this week at Gamescom, and beyond the scene-setting first trailer (which you can see below), the team at 2K Czech had a half-hour of city-roaming and third-person shooting to show off. I had mixed feelings about what I saw; its setting is great, the music and ambience are fantastic,…
2K Australia, a veteran studio that’s worked on everything from Freedom Force to Tribes to BioShock to Borderlands, was shut down today. Kotaku Australia has the story.
You can play Borderlands 2 and its associated DLC and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and its DLC today, just like you could yesterday. But this time, it’s all packaged together for the new-gen consoles in a definitive collection with some new features, like four-player splitscreen.
I've been playing a lot of Evolve over the last week and the questions I hear are all the same: Are you tired of this game yet? Is it really repetitive? The answer to each is, simply, no and yes, respectively.
When you start playing Evolve, you'll probably suck. Even as you get better, you'll still run into players who also suck. It can be frustrating. So, let's skip the learning through trial by (sometimes literal) fire, and get ahead of the curve.
Some Evolve players' progress is being wiped when they attempt to try to access their game's data from a second console, myself included. It's not clear why yet, but you should probably avoid playing between consoles if you value your time.
If you're planning on grabbing Evolve when it launches tomorrow, you'll pretty much be getting a multiplayer experience similar in concept to Left 4 Dead where you can take on one of three monsters as one of 12 hunters (or vice versa). But it's a bit more complicated than that.
Evolve can be simplified in many ways, and you've probably heard them all before. It's a first-person shooter. It's like Left 4 Dead, four players banding together, but you're up against a Tank—played by a fifth player—each round. It's one big boss battle, over and over. But the details that go into the new game,…
There's going to be even more sci-fi-styled Civilization action coming this spring, with a new strategy game coming from legendary game designer Sid Meier picking up where Civilization: Beyond Earth left off.
Matt Simon, a teenage basketball fan, is currently battling a "debilitating disease". Not that you'd know this, since he also just hit the free agent pool in NBA2K15, meaning anyone with the game can now have him go face-to-face with (or put him in the same lineup as) LeBron James.
In case you forgot, Valve's Source Filmmaker is an extremely powerful tool for turning games into movies. Sometimes we get things like the fantastic Team Fortress 2 End of the Line short. Other times we get sheer, unbridled madness. These videos starring BioShock's Booker DeWitt are the latter.
