Brink was weird. It mashed together multiplayer gunplay with single-player narrative, then spiced up its chunky concoction with parkour and levels set on floating cities (because global warming). It’s also telling that I speak about it in the past tense, because while it continues to exist, you could be forgiven for…
Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany and Leader of the Free World, was at Gamescom in Köln earlier today. And she spent some of her time in about the most Gamescom way imaginable.

Have you ever wanted to be a chef or a warrior, but couldn’t decide which one? In Tree of Life, you can be both!
Shenmue 3’s first major trailer debuted yesterday, showing off a world of martial arts, beautiful locales, and uncanny facial expressions. For some, including my peers at Kotaku, it was troubling. For me, it was everything I could have asked for.

Over the weekend, Overwatch pro Joonas “Zappis” Alakurtti had a decision to make: attend a friend’s wedding, or play his first match in Blizzard’s $100,000 Overwatch Contenders tournament. He chose both.
What’s the greatest horror game of all time? I’m willing to bet that your choice was a game with a first-person, or at least tightly-cropped, perspective. Horror relies on immersion to be effective, and a P.O.V. that puts you in the action will often enhance the experience.
If jump scares and body horror are the only things that make you feel anything anymore, you’re in luck! The latest Humble Bundle features features up to eight spooky games for great low prices, including Dead Age, Alien: Isolation, and Dead By Daylight.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is an easy video game to like in spite of its flaws. It’s buoyed by a winning cast of characters and has some of the prettiest vistas this side of an actual trip to India. It also includes one of the most entertaining hidden features I’ve ever encountered in a video game.
It’s that time of the year again, when adult Lego fans with children old enough not to destroy everything they touch find out what they’ll be adding to their Lego holiday display this season. Last year we got an amazing train. This year we get a place for it to stop.
A trailer for Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro’s upcoming game The Good Life released today. The strange game involving a town full of inhabitants who turn into cats at night is just another story by a developer well known for quirky concepts.
No Man’s Sky has been updated for the third time since Atlas Rises. The 1.33 patch fixes a lot of small issues, like missing mission markers and text truncation. It also makes it so the terrain editor isn’t built with a full charge—dammit.
Gwent, the in-universe card game from The Witcher 3, has been in beta as a standalone game since last May.
