Noita is an action roguelite that claims to “physically simulate” every pixel. Basically, that means things burn, melt, and blow up Real Nice. You’ll craft your own spells to help traverse its procedurally generated caverns. Its developers have worked on games like The Swapper, Crayon Physics Deluxe, and Environmental…
Kingdoms and Castles isn’t the most challenging or complex city-building game I’ve ever seen, but it is one of the best to just pick up and start playing.
Vehicles in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are not your friends. They might seem like they’re on your side, but then you hit a bump in the road, and they soar and tumble with no regard for the safety of their frail, fleshy passengers. One squad, however, turned a vehicular nightmare into every PUBG player’s dream.
Following the less consistent Heavy Rain, it was a joy to finish our playthrough of Wolfenstein: The New Order on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. While Wolfenstein might look on the surface like a mindless Nazi killing simulator, it’s actually a deeply human game.
Pyre is a sports game about starting a revolution. In a worse game, that would be a joke, but Pyre takes both its sports and its politics seriously and combines them in an unexpectedly compelling way.
We already have more awesome games than we can possibly play, so why not add a bunch more? Here’s all the big games coming out this summer.
In case seeing Persona 5 wasn’t impressive enough, here’s footage of another big PS3 game—Demon’s Souls—being entirely playable on a PC courtesy of an emulator.
Fighting games are complicated. That’s just a simple truth. As the genre has developed over the last few decades, franchises have become inundated with mechanics that both alienate newcomers and drive divisions between players. The makers of the upcoming game Fantasy Strike are trying to change that.
Josh Wittmann was playing a game of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds the other day when server lag struck, stranding all 100 players on the plane before they were forcibly ejected, landing everyone at the same location. While some folks fled for their lives, the rest did the honourable thing and just started swinging.
I had some very nice things to say about Total War: Warhammer a year ago when I reviewed it, but over the last week I thought I’d check back in and see how it was faring after 12 months of updates and DLC. I was happy to find that a very good game has got even better.
If the operating system on the PC I used in the ‘90s was anything like the one in Andrew Morrish’s OS/RPG Kingsway, I would have gotten a lot more “work” done back then.
Blade Runner fuses together a morally ambivalent story about godhood with a visual panache that has shaped cinematic science fiction since its 1982 release. While it has inspired many games like Snatcher, Mean Streets, and the forthcoming Cyberpunk 2077, there have actually been only two Blade Runner video games, each…
Nintendo is happy enough with its own Super Mario Maker, but modder extraordinaire Kaze Emanuar figured, hey, we could probably do with a Super Mario 64 version as well. So he made one.
I imagine most of you have played at least one or two of Telltale’s choice-driven narrative games, but the newest Humble Bundle is a great excuse to try out more.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can be rough. Fighting against one hundred other players takes a combination of good gear and precise aiming. But I’ve discovered the game’s most powerful tool: bushes.
Forget RPGs, action games or even a broken if decent adventure series. The perfect Game of Thrones video game is a mod for a 2012 strategy game on the PC.
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC megastar Conor McGregor are gonna “fight” in August. Since it’s a boxing match, Mayweather will almost certainly beat McGregor bloody and then use McGregor’s hair to mop up his own bodily fluids. To alleviate that inevitable disappointment and test the two fighters’ true skills,…
Event 0 is a science fiction game that came out last year. Since release, players have discovered four different endings to the game—which is strange, because according to the designer, it only has three.
While it’s sporting fancy new voxel graphics, the heart of Lode Runner Legacy is the same satisfying gameplay that made creator Douglas E. Smith’s prototypical puzzle platformer one of the greatest games of the ‘80s. Lode Runner’s still got it.
