Do attractive female fighting game characters in skimpy outfits bother you? Then meet Killer Instinct's latest combatant, Hisako. You'll like her. She'll break your bones from the inside.
This weekend at PAX East in Boston, convention goers can visit a Monster Hunter caravan… or at least, a pretty decent recreation.
If there's a new trailer for Gigantic, I'm compelled to watch the whole thing from start to finish.
Big news for Hearthstone fans out of PAX East already! The card game's getting a new adventure in April called Blackrock Mountain, and it's got five wings, 17 bosses, and 31 cards.
Giant Spacekat, developers of space adventure game Revolution 60, announced this week they cancelled PAX East booth space due to safety concerns.

It's easy to get freaked out on a solo trip through barren wilderness, especially when your job is waiting for it to catch on fire. Here's our first look at Firewatch in action.
Have you ever wanted to watch Kotaku talk about Kotaku? "Hell yes!" you say? "I want nothing more in this world," you say? Excellent. Here's a video recording of our panel from PAX East earlier this month. We talk about games, new consoles, and what it's like to work for everyone's favorite video game website.
Ubiquitous webcomic Penny Arcade's taken some rather poor stances on diversity in the past, leading some people (myself included) to avoid PAX altogether for the time being.

Spoiler: the stupid joke-gimmick glasses I'm wearing at the beginning of this video don't do anything to make Not a Hero look any cooler. That's okay, though. The new over-the-top action game doesn't need help looking cool, because it happens in 2.25D.

Straight out of PAX East 2014, here's Below, a serene dungeon crawler from Capy, the company behind Clash of Heroes and Sword & Sworcery. It's hard to capture just how pretty this game really is, but we did what we could.
PAX is a behemoth. A monolith. It's nearly outgrown the ubiquitous webcomic that spawned it. It's an incredibly popular event, where tens of thousands of video game fans come together to celebrate their favorite pastime. But I think the convention still has a lot more growing to do, and in some ways is growing in the…
Kotaku is at PAX East 2014, ready to bring you all news gaming-related throughout the weekend—but before we get started, let's take a look at the show floor.
The full force of Kotaku NYC (some of whom are too busy playing Threes on their respective devices in this picture here) will be headed to Boston this weekend for PAX East for fun game things, reporting things, and hanging out things. But we'll also be hosting a panel on Friday morning. It's called Kotaku's Incredible…
With PAX East just days away, Bethesda has given us all a fresh dose of things to be terrified of with a new gameplay trailer for The Evil Within, the upcoming survival horror game being made by one of the great minds behind Resident Evil.
