Today Microsoft introduces two new official colors to the Xbox One Wireless Controller line. There’s green and orange, which looks like an escapee from a Halo bundle, and sweet, delicious red, with its colorful candy buttons and delicious gummi analog sticks. It makes my teeth ache.
Upon reaching level five in Pokémon Go, the player must choose a faction to represent in the battle for Pokémon Gym domination. Are you a member of the calm and analytical Team Mystic, or did you choose one of the other two for some reason?
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Pokémon, the portable game that captured our hearts. Pun very much intended. But what of Mew? The legendary Pokémon had players trying to push a hidden truck for years. Turns out you can catch Mew after all, be it in your new 3DS version or your old GameBoy cartridge. Here’s…
I've somehow managed to avoid purchasing one of Japan's Good Smile Company's big-headed Nendoroid figures, despite my penchant for all things ridiculously cute. Then the North American Pokémon Center shop started selling the once Japan exclusive Red figure. Now I am doomed.
It's easy to dismiss Professor Oak as a doofy academic who can't even remember his grandson's name. But originally, Pokémon Red & Blue designed Professor Oak as a powerful trainer the player could face off sometime near the end of the game.
No, I cannot compete with the people who have somehow collected every piece of Pokemon merchandise on the planet. I often struggle to remember what Dark types are strong against. And honestly? I left the game sometime after Ruby and Sapphire, never to truly come back to it until Pokemon X and Y.
Earlier today, Rocket News 24, a Japanese news site, uploaded photos of an arcade machine spotted in Myanmar. The arcade machine at first glance looks pretty much like every cheap arcade game out there—however, upon closer inspection, one can see that it's horribly racist. Towards the Japanese.
There are medications an HIV-positive expectant mother can take throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding that grant her child a 98 percent chance of being HIV free. $205 is enough to keep a mother in medication from conception to weaning. The largest in-app purchase in Coca-Cola and (RED)'s new free-to-play iOS game…
Way back in 1999, a friend of mine gave me an ancient gray brick of a Game Boy and a very used copy of Pokémon Red while we were on a middle school field trip. An eighth grader, I already knew myself to be "too old" for Pokémon. After all, I was already into games like Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger; besides,…
SteelSeries might have the official Diablo III license, but that doesn't mean it's the only clicking game in town. Take the new Naga Hex Wraith Red edition, for instance.
Earlier this year Polish developer CD Projekt Red got into a legal scuffle with Namco Bandai over the distribution rights to the Xbox 360 port of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Now a French court has made it quite clear: THQ is out, and Namco Bandai is in.
Today we all know that Luigi is the taller of the two Mario brothers, but back in the old days the difference wasn't quite as easy to notice.
Every couple of weeks we deliver a list of our favorite (mostly) new Xbox Live Indie games to officials involved with the Xbox 360. We pick our favorite indie games; they list them in a corner of the Xbox Live Games Marketplace called Kotaku's Favorites (it's in the Indie channel).
We knew Rockstar Games was going to include a cooperative multiplayer gamers vs. zombies horde mode in the October 26 Red Dead Redemption expansion Undead Nightmare. Who knew they were going to make a poem about it? See/hear it here.
American McGee is a developer with an enormous imagination and...inconsistent execution. Yes, he's the man behind Alice, but he's also the man behind a string of disappointing titles ever since. So it's with uncertainty we look upon his next game.
Kotakuland has spoken and picked its favorite red picture for our Red Faction contest. But which photo was the winner? (Hint: It's a picture with red in it.)
Don't forget! If you plan on entering our Red Faction contest, you have this weekend to get your entry ready — like reader Karan already did.
We also get a look at some pretty explosions and the hammer, oh the hammer action.
