The folks behind EasyAntiCheat, a service that stops people from cheating in video games, deal with one of the messiest issues in the medium. People often feel that anyone caught breaking the rules should be punished severely, but you don’t always know why someone cheated. That’s where things get dicey.
It’s been nearly three years since The Legend of Korra left our TV screens, ending with Korra getting her happy ending, Asami by her side. It’s been two years since we first learned that the show’s story would continue as a comic courtesy of Dark Horse. Finally, Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One has arrived—and it’s…
Good news and bad news, guys: Korra, star of the Avatar sequel The Legend of Korra, has finally received an action figure courtesy of the folks at Good Smile. That’s the good news. The bad news is that if you were hoping for a Korra figure without a giant, oversized head, well, you’re going to be waiting a while…
There’s cosplaying as Korra, and then there’s “oh man look at this it looks like she’s actually waterbending while cosplaying as Korra”.
This was a tough year for movies and television — we had the weakest box office summer in years, and TV ratings were anemic. Tons of huge, vaunted projects stumbled, and some underdogs thrived. Here are the top 10 lessons we hope the entertainment industry has learned this year.
Wow. The Legend of Korra really knows how to do a finale. There is so much to talk about between Kuvira and Korra's final showdown, Team Avatar defending Republic City—and of course, that thing that happened at the very end. We're sad to see this show go, but we're delighted with the way it went out.
Technology has radically changed the world of Legend of Korra, giving its people the wonders of trains, cars, and radios. But with Kuvira moving on the Earth Empire's final holdout, we see how technology also has the potential to make warfare in the Avatar world more devastating. How can the Avatar match the…
One of the particularly great things about Legend of Korra Book 4 is the way it has managed to, ahem, balance the show's enormous cast. In this week's episode, Tenzin's kids take center stage when they journey to find Korra. And, in the meantime, we learn exactly what made Korra's former antagonists villains.
Yesterday I posted my review of the Legend of Korra video game. While it had some high points, I mostly wasn't a fan. And now, with the Korra cartoon and entire Avatar universe winding down, I can't help but worry that we might never see a video game truly do the series justice.
It was another dramatic panel for the Korra crew, and the second in a year. At San Diego, the creators had to explain Nickelodeon's decision to put the show on the Internet only. And yesterday in New York, the cast and crew bid the show goodbye.
The final season of The Legend of Korra starts streaming this Friday, summing up one of the best shows currently on television. If you haven't been watching the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, we have a few reasons why you should hop on this series.
This has been a bizarre year for The Legend of Korra. First, Book 3 was released with little notice; then the show was yanked off the air and made an online-only property. Now the creators have announced that Book 4: Balance will premiere on October 3rd—of this year.
The news came yesterday that Book 3 of The Legend of Korra was being pulled from Nickelodeon to air online. So of course the creators of the show had to address it at this morning's Comic-Con panel — which they did, before moving on to celebrate the show.
I've got good news and bad news, Bending fans. The bad news is that Nickelodeon has taken season 3 of Legend of Korra off the air; only one episode will air this Friday night, and after that, nothing (well, nothing unless you count the good news, which is that the remaining episodes will be released online).
The Legend of Korra dropped out of adventure mode a bit this week to focus on two of its key families: the Beifongs and the Aang clan. But while the children of Toph and Aang worked out their differences, our merry band of villains is having all the fun.
After the world-changing ending of The Legend of Korra Book 2, we were cautiously optimistic about Book 3, and so far, the new season is looking good. It helps that Korra has a renewed sense of purpose and some truly spectacular baddies on the horizon.
Some villains strive for wealth and power. Some villains strive for glory. But a surprising number of villains are motivated solely by their tangled relationships with the hero. These are love-hate relationships, in which the villain just wants to impress the hero or spend quality time together. Here are the 12 most…
This year's science fiction and fantasy television delivered amazing highs and terrible lows. But what were the most brilliant scenes, and what were the most horrific? We've rounded them up the year's best moments, along with some of the absolute worst. Spoilers ahead...
Is this the most insane television season for science fiction and fantasy fans ever? There are tons of new genre shows. But also, a surprisingly high percentage feel like they could be superb. Including killer comic-book shows, futuristic cop action, and supernatural sexiness. Here's our complete guide to fall TV.
Greetings, Kotaku, and welcome to Friday night's off-topic thread. You know what I want to talk about for the off-topic? I want to talk for just a second about The Legend of Korra.
