Five Nights at Freddy's Fan Game Makes Disney Characters Terrifying

Forget Chuck-e-Cheese-like animatronics. Those are already a little bit creepy on their own. Corrupting Disney characters, however, is a bit more unsettling. » 12/12/14 7:00pm 12/12/14 7:00pm

Exactly The Colorful 3D Platformer I Was Looking For

The Dragon Ball Z Game We Deserve

Hyper Dragon Ball Z might look like a forgotten arcade game of the 1990's, but it's actually a modern Dragon Ball game made by super fans in the indie fighting game engine, Mugen. And boy does the game look fantastic (the way it plays, sure, but also: dem sprites, tho.) » 4/07/14 7:00pm 4/07/14 7:00pm

How To Play Goat Simulator's Secret Mini Games

How can a goat play video games? Listen, I don't know. It's better if we don't dwell on things like that, because the point is, you can play a bunch of mini games in Goat Simulator if you know where to look. » 4/01/14 7:00pm 4/01/14 7:00pm

A Game Where You Are The Terrifying Alien That Soldiers Want To Kill

I've killed a lot of aliens in my time. You probably have, too. It's not often that we get to be the mysterious extraterrestrial that all the humans are terrified of, though. » 11/01/13 8:30pm 11/01/13 8:30pm

​How To Play League of Legends, The Biggest Game In The World

The Game That "Won" Our Classic PC Games List (If It Had A Winner)

A couple of weeks ago, I headed up a massive, crowdsourced list of the best PC games of all time. This week, we added what will probably be our final update. I didn't expect that the list become as massive as it did, nor did I expect that a couple of games would emerge as clear favorites. » 9/19/13 9:00pm 9/19/13 9:00pm

I Thought This Game Was Supposed To Be Realistic. Oh Well!

One of ArmA III's biggest selling points is its realism—it's a modern combat simulation that gives players a sandbox to play out scenarios not possible in most other games. So I was certainly surprised to see this footage by Moerderhoschi785, where a player rides a drone like he was the Green Goblin or something. » 9/13/13 6:00pm 9/13/13 6:00pm

Street Fighter As A Black-and-White Disney Cartoon

Red Little House, the developers behind adventure game Fleish & Cherry in Crazy Hotel, have created a series of cool illustrations that mash up Fleish characters with other video games. It kind of makes me wish we had more video games in the style of classic cartoons, because it looks rad.

Gunpoint: The Kotaku Review

Good things often come in small packages. Gunpoint is just such a good thing, in just such a small package. Like the diminutive buildings you'll spend the game circumnavigating and infiltrating, Gunpoint itself is an intricate array of interlocking circuits and gears, finely tuned and waiting for you to bend it to… » 6/03/13 8:00pm 6/03/13 8:00pm

It Looks Like Wind Waker and Plays Like Super Mario 64. Fantastic.

We've been covering the delightful A Hat In Time for a while now, but not only have the developers recently launched a Kickstarter to help fund the development, I also finally got a chance to play it. Now I can tell you that without a doubt, this is project worth supporting. » 5/30/13 8:30pm 5/30/13 8:30pm

You'd Be Surprised How Fun A Text-Based Multiplayer Shooter Can Be

When I think of fast-paced multiplayer shooters, I think of first-person games like Halo and Call of Duty. I don't generally think of text-based games. » 11/06/12 4:30pm 11/06/12 4:30pm

Goodbye, FarmVille 2. It's Been Fun, But I've Had Enough.

This past weekend, I took a trip out of town. I went outdoors, I sat in the sun. I drove through Northern California, past vinyards and polo fields, plots of land with a strip of earth out front for growing tomatoes and corn. I didn't really have my computer with me. » 9/25/12 4:30pm 9/25/12 4:30pm
