This year, I published a book, fell in love with a brand new hardware system, and played a ton of video games. Here are the best ten.
This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, BLOOD, SWEAT, AND PIXELS, which comes out on September 5 and tells the stories behind 10 different games including Diablo III, Uncharted 4, and Star Wars 1313. You can pre-order the book at your favorite bookstore.
If you woke up this morning thinking “Hey I want to watch Jason talk to Kinda Funny’s Colin Moriarty for like two hours,” you are in luck. Last week in San Francisco, I went on Colin’s show to talk about Kotaku, journalism, and all sorts of other video game subjects. Enjoy!
For the past year, I’ve been reporting and writing a book full of stories about how video games were made. Today, I’m psyched to announce Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, a look behind the scenes of games like Uncharted 4, Star Wars 1313, and many more. It’ll be out on September 5.
From puzzlers to JRPGs to, uh, more puzzlers, this was a good year for video games. And my top 10 list will probably not surprise any of you.
It is time again to go through my favorite games of the year. I promise they’re not all JRPGs.
A month ago, I said publicly that the Kotaku team would be expanding, which may have led some to think we were going to add on the expansion pack of a single, terrific new hire. Or maybe we'd add two people. No way.
