​What Game Have You Felt The Most Conflicted About?

One Thing's For Sure About Remember Me: Its Art Is Beautiful

Remember Me is one of those rare - and wonderfully so - games that divides opinion. Yeah, it's got some iffy combat, and the platforming's not so great. But the world developers Dontnod created for it to exist in...just, wow. » 6/05/13 11:30pm 6/05/13 11:30pm

This Is Why Remember Me Is a Great Piece of Science Fiction

Maybe you’re on the fence about Remember Me, the cyberpunk action/platformer hybrid that came out this week. Critical reaction to the Capcom published has been all over the map but Kotaku video editor Chris Person and I found a lot to like about it. » 6/05/13 5:00pm 6/05/13 5:00pm

It Doesn't Matter That Remember Me's Main Character Is a Black Woman.

I wasn't sure that I was going to write about the race of Remember Me's heroine because I wasn't sure there'd be anything to write about. And after having played the game, I can say that Nilin's ethnic make-up plays no part in the world-building of the new Capcom adventure. » 6/04/13 5:44pm 6/04/13 5:44pm

Remember Me: The Kotaku Review

At first, I thought that Remember Me would be one of those games where I liked its ideas more than its execution. But, even though it's surrounded by some rough gameplay and well-worn templates, the core concept behind the game—control over what we choose to hold onto—comes to life in ambitious ways. » 6/03/13 8:20am 6/03/13 8:20am

No Wonder The Corporation In This Game Owns Nearly All Personal Data

Here's a neat speech for Remember Me, the dystopian game where a corporation manages to own the memories of nearly the entire population. The speech is delivered by Antoine Cartier-Wells, founder of that corporation—and listening to him talk about memories, it's not difficult to see how easy it would be to sway public … » 5/15/13 6:30pm 5/15/13 6:30pm

This cool interactive journal for Remember Me pulls you through the life of the guy who invented the game’s memory digitization technology. It reminds me a bit of the Daft Punk cover story on Pitchfork that everyone's been talking about today. Turns out the game's fiction all started on Facebook. Sort of. » 5/14/13 7:00pm 5/14/13 7:00pm

A Visual History of Attractive Video Game Characters: The 10s

The past few years produced a huge amount of great games and a surprisingly decent amount of them have well-developed characters that are hard to forget. And, of course, some of them look really attractive. » 5/03/13 6:30pm 5/03/13 6:30pm

And Then, For A Moment, Remember Me Turned Into The Running Man

One of the oddest parts of Remember Me, which I checked out on Tuesday and liked, was this bit at the very end of my hour-long demo. As Nilin made her way through the game's second level, the malls and apartments were all playing ads for this famous bounty-hunter dude who, surprise surprise, turns up at the end as a… » 2/14/13 9:00pm 2/14/13 9:00pm

Five Things You Should Know About Remember Me

The futuristic, memory-remixing action game Remember Me captured our attention when it debuted last summer, and I've been curious to play it ever since. A game about a kickass lady memory-thief who lives in a dystopian future-version of Paris? Sounds good to me. » 2/14/13 10:40am 2/14/13 10:40am
