Think a game needs to have humanoid shapes or faces to generate fun cosplay? Look at this awesome Threes couple and think again.
The Kotaku crew spent last weekend at PAX East 2014, and we saw a whole bunch of great games. Take a look at some of the best games we saw, along with other great videos from this week on Watchlist.
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.
Listen, Space Partner, if we don't figure out how to work together, the space bunnies are going to die horrible, lonely deaths. Stop screaming at me and upgrade those shields!
Video game movement's the best, isn't it? Jumping higher than possible in reality, dodging, rolling and sprinting with impossible smoothness across precise vectors… it's no wonder you get limitations like a double jump or short dash distances. Fenix Rage takes those strictures away, giving you infinite dash and…
Life is stressful and sometimes even the bravest people shut down under too much trauma. Darkest Dungeon takes that emotional reality and weaves it into the game, giving players a band of warriors who can get so sick and tired of fighting all the damn time that they'll just quit or run away.
Some games ask you to shoot, jump or strategize in ways that are similar to what you've done. Sure, there may be unique tweaks designed to pique your interest but you mostly go in knowing what to expect. Other games are different deep down in their DNA, challenging the way you do even the simplest things. Miegakure's…
Hyper Light Drifter, a game we've been psyched about since we first saw it on Kickstarter last year, continues to look great. Here's some new hands-on video, straight out of PAX East 2014.
Sometimes, you're wandering around PAX East and you find a sweet game that looks like Secret of Mana, so you've gotta check it out. This is Wayward Souls, the next game from the folks at Rocketcat (Mage Gauntlet, Punch Quest). It's out for iOS on April 24, and it looks legit. Hands-on impressions above.
At PAX East last weekend, Team Kotaku went and played Evolve, the upcoming co-op shooter that pits a group of four hunters against one vicious monster. Yesterday, we talked about it. Here's that conversation.
God Only Knows: check out this awesome musical cosplay from PAX East 2014: it's the Barbershop Quartet we see at the start of BioShock Infinite. (via Matthew B)
Meet Chasm, an upcoming indie 2D dungeon-crawler inspired by the likes of Ys III: Wanderers From Ys and other old-school RPG-slash-platformers from the 16-bit days.
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.
Did you know Gearbox Software founder, president and CEO Randy Pitchford started out as a professional magician in Hollywood? He unleashed his magical powers at the Gearbox panel at PAX East earlier today, and the world trembled beneath his might.
Five years ago, Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor became an instant classic in the iPhone games library. The moody, wordless experience turned players into multi-legged predators wending their way into creepy environments and a foreboding meta-story. That game's sequel won't just be debuting on iOS; it'll be on…
Usually, games that happen beyond Earth's atmosphere take you to planets teeming with life. Meeting creatures with tentacles where hair or hands should be or with strangely angled mandibles isn't uncommon in sci-fi games. But, none of that happens in Elegy for Dead World, which we got a chance to see at PAX East…
Thank you, unknown cosplayer, for your furry tribute to the best thing about Call of Duty: Ghosts.
During Gearbox Software's PAX East 2014 panel this morning, fans got a quick peek at the incredibly limited starship that's coming in the equally limited collector's edition of the Homeworld Remastered. So pretty.
Ah PAX, one of the few place you'll find cosplayers like Sheena Duquette dressing up as pre-order DLC.
