While all of us at Kotaku are big fans of typing, a handful of us have started taking our love of keyboards to the next level. There’s nothing like a good mechanical keyboard, especially when you take extra steps to make it your very own. I’ll show you what I’m typing on if you show me yours.
Players who try Automatron will be delighted to find the DLC’s has a staggering number of options for building robots. Naturally, people are taking advantage of this and recreating bots and characters that everybody knows and loves.
Overwatch’s new tank character “D. Va” has an ult that triggers her giant armored mech to detonate and kill everything caught within its blast range. “Everything” includes you, I just found out in the hardest possible way.
Debating between two of the available versions of Titanfall? Maybe seeing the graphical differences between the Xbox One and the PC version will help.
No, robot overlords didn't make the awesome Comic-Con mech that tried to befriend kids this year. Humans did! Hence why the mech needs someone to pilot it—not that it's immediately obvious that someone is in the suit. Kind of begs the question: how did they pull it off?
Looking at pictures of ProgV's mech, you can see some obvious hints here and there of its former life as a car—the headlights, for example. What's less subtle is it's awesomeness.
If you attend San Diego Comic-Con 2013, you can probably expect at least a few crazy, elaborate costumes. But this robot, which wired provides us footage of, is something else. The thing is 9 feet 9 inches, it has four arms, and despite looking menacing, I'm guessing those weapons aren't real. Still, wow.
They're made of paper. Amazing stuff.
Vitaly Bulgarov works at Blizzard, on the company's world-renowned cinematics team. But we're not here today to look at art for Blizzard games, or indeed for their fancy trailers and cutscenes.
No, I think I was right the first time. If you see the new Technician mech on the enemy's team, kill it. If it's on your team, hug it. If it's you, then congratulations, you're a helper. Way to help. Want to see pics of the new map you'll be dying on?
I've been unfair to giant mechs and the people who love them. If you asked me about mechs a week ago, I'd probably make some awful comment about how mechs remind me of little boys clacking their action figures together, which isn't appealing to me. I didn't "get" the love for giant mechs.
The future is now. Or at least, it's soon, and over $1 million dollars away for those interested, as Japanese company Suidobashi has announced plans to build custom, actual, operational mechs.
People make amazing custom spaceships out of LEGO, sure, but they also make amazing custom mechs as well.
Armored Core V just hit stores, Hawken, Reign of Thunder, and a new Mechwarrior are in the works, but is that enough? Commenter Tem Dejima doesn't think so, calling for more mighty mechs in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.
With each new clip and screenshot of its indie shooter capturing the hearts and minds of mech lovers around the globe, Adhesive Games further ingratiates its growing fan base with the news that Hawken is coming in December, and it will be free-to-play.
NCsoft's doomed massively-multiplayer online science fiction game Tabula Rasa may only have weeks to live, but the developers are making those weeks count, with giant player-controlled mechs storming the title's final moments.
