Wahay! It’s hard to believe it’s been over 15 years since the magic of Banjo-Kazooie first graced the Nintendo 64. Who knew we’d still be looking back fondly on the musically entwined adventures of a bear and bird so many years later.
With a new Star Wars movie out, the first in ten years, now is as good a time as any to see how all the films stack up. That’s right, it’s time to put the Star Wars movies through the Pecking Order paces—much like with have with everything from the Final Fantasy games to, more recently, the Fallout ones.
In the 18 years since the Fallout franchise was introduced to the world, all of the games have been met with praise—which means that ranking them isn’t easy. It’s especially difficult to pit the games against each other when you consider that the post-nuclear franchise underwent a genre change.
We’re ten years removed from the last time Star Trek was on TV, and, aside from free-floating rumors, we’re no closer to getting a new TV show.

Kotaku has been running a series called the Pecking Order, ranking games in a series from best to worst. In the spirit of this series, let’s look at the Fire Emblem series today, ranking them from worst to best. All of the games in the Fire Emblem series are worth playing in their own right, but which are the best in…
Hey, Pecking Order! It's been a while. So let's ease in with a ranking that's very dear to my heart.
I published an innocent little story yesterday about an N64 controller that provoked an unexpected response. You see, I hate the Nintendo 64 controller. All my friends hate it. Everyone I ever gamed on the console with hated it. I figured it was pretty safe to share that dislike.…
