L.A. Noire’s remaster brings the cult detective story back for another round of sleuthing. A change to the dialog system meant to fix the original game’s flaws makes interrogations more difficult than before.
The first half of 2017 was crammed with exceptional games. That high tide ebbed in May, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks going back and catching up on what I missed. I’ve also spent a lot of time playing Minecraft, a game that came out almost six years ago.
After not playing Snipperclips for months, I had more or less written the game off as being easy and filler-y. But after last week’s DLC, Snipperclips Plus, I was wrong.
We were right to suspect something messed up was going on with the possession mechanic in Mario Odyssey. Cappy has a mind of its own, and if you’re not careful, it can take Mario out of the picture entirely. It’s some creepypasta-level stuff.
Nintendo Switch owners yearning to keep their system dashboard as pretty as possible did not appreciate Kingdom: New Lands’ minimalist icon design. Well their nightmare is now over. This week’s game update swapped the pixelated crown for an icon so epic it got its own trailer.
This ad for the Nintendo Switch shows how great it would look without bezels. Actual Switches have a thick border around the edge of the screen with plastic underneath. The one advertised by German hypermarket chain Real does not. With smartphones all chasing edge-to-edge displays, it would be great to see Nintendo’s…
Doom does not perform nearly as well on the Switch as it does on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. On Nintendo’s latest console, Doom runs at a lower framerate, with big sacrifices in resolution and graphical fidelity. But really, isn’t it a miracle that Doom is on the Switch at all?
Sonic Forces is a fever dream of fan-fiction that is awkward to play but still manages to be trashy fun.
Sonic Forces’s character creator helps bring your DeviantArt creations to life to create wolf dudes, bird gals, and bear pals. Staff writer Gita Jackson and I took this opportunity to create Kotaku’s official fursona. Please don’t steal.
For the past week, I’ve been falling ever more deeply in love with Super Mario Odyssey. I like a lot of things about this game, but most of all, I like that there’s no timer.
There are dozens of outfits for Mario to wear in Super Mario Odyssey, and the game will even comment on your fashion sense. Mario isn’t what I would call a stylish guy, but I have to admit he almost looks cool in some of these outfits. Here are my favorites.
We’re just over three weeks away from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and to celebrate, Nintendo today offered a bunch of new details for the upcoming Switch role-playing game, including a spotlight of the combat system and the reveal of a season pass.
Nintendo launched the Switch on March 3 of this year. The system was surprisingly well received. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was amazing, plus it was portable, and the Switch has been gaining momentum ever since. There’s just one problem: it doesn’t have a d-pad.
SteamWorld Dig 2 takes place in a colorful world inspired by Western movies. “Is there such a thing as something too western-y?” Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson wondered to me over email. If you look at the game, apparently not.
Reader Matt didn’t dress up as a Nintendo character for Halloween. He dressed up as a Nintendo console, complete with bloody Halloween twist.
I’m kind of blown away by how much the Peach Amiibo breaks Super Mario Odyssey.
Wheels of Aurelia, now out on Switch, is a smart, charming game that takes you on a road trip through Italy in the 70s.
Just before the Nintendo Switch launched, we wrote about a game that required more space than the system’s 24GB of usable onboard memory . In March it was an exception, but by the end of the year it’s already becoming the norm for third-party releases on the platform.
Super Mario Odyssey is one giant celebration of everything coin and plumber related. A callback in the later portion of the game is a wonderful blast from the past.
