You might have seen a trailer for this project last year, when it was looking for money on Indiegogo. Well, it managed to raise that cash and meet its post-production goals so Hardcore, a movie shot entirely from a first-person perspective, is on its way.
If you're skilled enough, you don't need a party to play through the new Dragon Age—even on the hardest difficulty available, soloing Inquisition is totally possible.
Here's an action scene from a movie called Hardcore that's filmed completely from one character's point of view so it looks exactly like a first person shooter video game. In fact, it's so good, it's as if those FPS video games like Call of Duty all of a sudden came to life. Watch it.
So Ubisoft officially confirmed Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag today. If you're a weirdo like me, then you weren't spending the majority of your time speculating on the gameplay or setting, but instead were wondering what level of involvement the American hardcore band Black Flag had in the process.
The other day, I thought to myself: "I've been working at Kotaku for nearly a year and not once have I brought up the band Black Flag and the game EarthBound in the same post." Then I thought to myself, "You know what I should do? Fire up Photoshop and make that a reality."
While the folks at the iTunes gaming division might have trouble rooting out copycat games, what they excel at is making lists. In creating a list of ten games that can take a mobile gamer from casual to hardcore, those Apple list-builders have created a mini history of gaming in portable form.
A team of four Barbarians joined together recently with a simple goal in mind: to take down the Skeleton King, one of Diablo III's earliest boss fights. An easy task, unless you're playing on Hardcore Mode, and you aren't allowed to upgrade your equipment. Girlish shouts ensue.
When you first spin up BioShock Infinite later this year don't expect to see the recently-announced retro-difficult 1999 mode on the main menu. That's because it's so tough Ken Levine doesn't want "the non old-school, hardcore gamer" stumbling into it.
Do you ever use a word without fully understanding what it means? I have a friend like that. He uses the word "frumpy," but I'm fairly sure he's never opened the dictionary to find out just what it means. In his mind, "frumpy" means "bloated" or "bored" or whatever he needs it to mean in his present case of…
If you asked Meterora3255 if he liked Uncharted 2 he'll tell you he never played it, but that's a lie. You see, Meteora3255 has a dirty secret. He didn't like Uncharted 2. He tried to hide his true feelings at first, but as we all know, the gaming community can be cruel and shamed him into silence, until now. So what…
While Atomic Games has missed the chance to get "Destruction 3.0" shooter Breach onto Xbox Live this summer, the new January 2011 release window gives the developer time to blur the line between military simulation and video game even further.
Well, it reads like an essay, but this piece by David Hayward is actually a transcript of a talk given at the "Under The Mask, Perspectives on the Gamer" event a few days ago (slides included!). It's a brilliant and somewhat lengthy piece on culture-with-a-small-c, as it relates to gaming (as, in Hayward's appraisal,…
