I went out on the streets of New York City to ask the people a question that has burned game-likers’ brains since the announcement of the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey: is Mario a human?
As anyone who’s both played The Division and been to New York can instantly recognise, the developers did a pretty good job nailing the look and feel of the city’s streets. Which is cool for tourists and residents, but what about cartographers?
I was a little worried about how a LEGO game mainly based on the Avengers film franchise would compare to the captivating open-world exploration of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Looks like I worried over nothing—LEGO Avengers has all of that and more.
There were some reports on NeoGaf and other places that suggested that eager Smash Bros. customers in formed a line "at least three blocks long" at the Nintendo World store last night. Three blocks sounds like a lot, but it's actually not as big a line as you suspect.
Got a long vacation coming up? Have a spare $9,000? UK travel agency Sta and Game have put together a 14-stop 'Round the World' tour that takes gamers to London, Tokyo, Phuket, Boston and beyond.

I’ve lived in New York City my entire life and I’ve never lost anything terribly significant in the city’s underground subways. A scarf or a hat, maybe. Never lost a phone but I understand why that would suck. But losing an entire Xbox 360 console? That would be the worst. And, as you can see in the picture above,…
I live in New York City. Everyday I ride the subway to work; most people here do. I haven't owned a car in 10 years. I live in the densest large city in America, one full of massive skyscrapers, immense culture and people of every race, culture and creed.
Of all the new figures Toys for Bob introduced in Skylanders Giants, there is one I desire above all others. She's a ninja. She's a djinn. She's Ninjini, and Activision is giving her away free at the Times Square Toys'R'Us on Tuesday, the jerks.
Coming to the iPhone and iPad in February, Gutpela's Sidewalker: Late to Work is a painstakingly accurate recreation of what I felt like when I visited New York City last month to hang at the Kotaku main office, right down to the lack of pants.
One of the most chilling consequences of last month's brutal superstorm was how Sandy flooded and shut down huge chunks of New York City's mass transit system. Entire subway stations were submerged and the tunnels that trains travel through were flooded to an unprecedented degree. Much of the subway system was up and…
As of yesterday evening, Gawker's network of sites bounced back up after Hurricane Sandy violently swept through the North East.
With Hurricane Sandy bearing down on New York City, Isaiah-Triforce Johnson (real name: Isaiah-Triforce Johnson) has been told to vacate his position as first in line to purchase a Wii U at Nintendo World in Manhattan. The console releases in 21 days.
Funcom's supernatural real-world MMO The Secret World launched last week, and I'd rather be playing it than telling you about the developer's plans to release new content on a monthly basis, including what sounds like the first online raid of New York City, yet here we are.
This morning, Kotaku video editor Chris Person and I took a trip to New York's Chinatown Fair, which reopened last Friday following a sudden closure last December. It doesn't look very much like the old Chinatown Fair.
Fourteen months after the events of the original Prototype, New York City has become a place filled with danger, disease, and corruption. What took it so long?
Newly opened dim sum joint Red Farm, in New York's West Village, is serving "Pac-Man Dumpings". Sweet potato Pac-Man is cute! (And the Katz's pastrami spring rolls sound kind of amazing, as well.) The decor has a spiffed up tin-roof-rustic thing going on, too, as well as one of those big long common tables that drives…
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is coming to life in New York City. Square Enix hired artists from various mediums to put together original works based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution's futuristic setting, dealing with the moral and ethical issues of artificial body augmentation. Each artist will put together one poster style…
The first thing I thought about this morning, as I opened my eyes, was that the cat trying to rouse me from my hung-over sleep sounded like a Game Boy.
