WILDWOOD, N.J. — The beach at Wildwood is so wide, from boardwalk to surf, that we could barely see the water from where we sat on one of three empty metal bleachers in the sand surrounding the 94th (mostly) annual National Marbles Tournament. A transient parade of spectators watched from the boardwalk above the…
I love asking questions almost as much as I love listening to answers. Two weeks ago at the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo (“E3"), I got to do both!
I did not get to play Super Mario Odyssey at E3 2017. However, my colleagues did, and I got to study 20 minutes of delicious footage they captured. I spent too much time frame-by-frame studying the glorious dust cloud effects when Mario butt-stomps. I also noticed an overt “Glengarry Glen Ross” reference in the New…
I love asking questions almost as much as I love listening to answers. Last week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (aka “E3", aka “Electronic Three”), I got to do both of those things.
Sun’s out, guns out! While it may be time to give your TV a much-needed summer vacation, hotter temps mean you’re more likely to heat things up romantically, and Netflix is here to help you chill with some out of this world summer additions (and some unfortunate show departures).

Clifford “Cliffy B” Bleszinski once described video game guns’ profound appeal with this simple sentiment: “reach out and touch someone . . . with your gun.” Since the early 1990s, guns have pretty much been the telephone of choice for video game characters: they speak to their rivals with bangs, booms, and headshots.
Yesterday Microsoft revealed the Xbox One X, previously known as “Project Scorpio”, inside a sophisticated building somewhere in Los Angeles. I’m older than I was back in the days when I used to sneak my way into these things, so I did what every guy who is almost forty does — I plugged a Rode smartLav+ lavalier…
Street Fighter is one of the most prominent fighting game series in the world, but it can be hard to track down competitive arcade scenes for some of the older games, like Street Fighter 3. Earlier this week, YouTube user Phil H. uploaded a short doc where he interviewed five Americans who moved to Japan to, among…
Spring is here, but that doesn’t mean any of us want to do anything but binge watch TV. Netflix is bringing a bunch of its original TV shows back this month in the United States alongside tons of other new movies.
Netflix is about to rain down on April with some nerd-friendly original content, but that’s coming at the cost of some of the best nerd-friendly classic TV.
We’re playing Mass Effect: Andromeda over on Facebook. Check it out:
Skyrim is has plenty of dragons, warriors and adventure. One of the more disappointing features, however, is romance. In this video, we discuss the shortcomings of vanilla romanceable NPCS, and how modders such as myself sought to create more realistic relationships in a classic RPG.
At the beginning of January, I happened upon a video you may have seen: a young woman doing pushups for 100 days. She starts out “scrawny,” but gets stronger. I wanted to do that. So I did, and you can too.
Kotaku is putting together a video team of fresh voices with a creative spark. Could that be you?
When I first found out during the LA Auto Show that the 2017 Cadillac CT6 in the Platinum trim came with onboard WiFi, two back seat monitors, an HDMI port and a household outlet, I immediately thought that this would be a perfect place to hook up a gaming console. Turns out I was right, and here’s what happened when…
If you’re getting ready to hit the polls today, you should be prepared. Know what’s on your ballot, bring something to read (or maybe an external battery pack), and get ready for long lines. Here’s a video guide to get you through it.
Let’s bow our heads for six seconds of silence: Vine is closing down. The video looping service doesn’t fit in with Twitter’s plans for the future, which means you’re going to have to go elsewhere for your micro-movie-making exploits. In the announcement of its closure, Vine said it plans on “keeping the website online
This week’s episode of Foodspin takes us to the fabled (and somewhat controversial) Ben’s Chili Bowl, which has been an institution here in Washington, D.C. for nearly 60 years. There, Burneko and I discover the wonders of the Ben’s half-smoke, which is a big fucking sausage smothered in chili and onions. No wonder my…
The Druids. Nobody knows who they were, or what they were doing. In World of Warcraft: Legion what they’re doing is spending a lot of time in their lush and vibrant Order Hall, the latest expansion’s answer to one of Warlords of Draenor’s more contentious features.
