People poured money into a Kickstarter for a spiritual successor to the 1998 Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie. Why? Because Banjo-Kazooie was a wonderful game and no mere Mario 64 me-too, as some detractors claim.
There’s a new Guardians of the Galaxy movie! Let’s talk about it.
We’ve talked about Uncharted 4's single player a lot. It’s time to discuss the game’s multiplayer.
We recently took a break from our usual back-and-forths about video games to chat about the new Star Wars movie: what we liked, what didn’t make sense, what we think will happen next. Join us, if you will. Warning: this one’s full of spoilers. Don’t read it unless you’ve already seen the movie (or don’t care!).
Over the last couple of weeks, several of us here at Kotaku have worked our way through Destiny’s new King’s Fall raid. Some of us really like it. Others, not so much.
The Witcher 3 has had a bunch of us under its spell for months, but we’re at a point where several of us on staff have now finished the game. With our tears wiped away and the book closed on Geralt’s adventures (for now), it’s time to talk about the end. Well, ends.
The Witcher 3. It just won’t leave us alone. It won’t get out of our heads.
Let’s gather and talk about the newest Batman game. All of it. In the most spoiler-riffic fashion.
You know the drill: Worlds will live! Worlds will die! Lots of spin-offs! Marvel and DC Comics are pretty much doing the same universe-changing story in almost the same way at almost the same time. One of them is good. One of them isn’t.
Guess what? Mad Max: Fury Road is an awesome movie. So awesome, in fact, that a bunch of us Kotaku staffers decided to get together and talk about why we loved it.
You went to see Avengers 2. We went to see Avengers 2. Let’s talk about Avengers 2, too.
I’ve been waiting for a show about Marvel’s blind lawyer superhero lawyer for, like, 20 years. So, of course, I binged on the new Daredevil show on Netflix as soon as I could. I wasn’t the only one here at Kotaku who felt that way. You know what? We loved it.
Today marks the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, a smaller-sized version of the 2012 JRPG that was originally made for the Wii.
For some reason, late last night I started replaying Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s single-player campaign. You know what? That really was a damn good Call of Duty game.
I left our own Kirk Hamilton with a challenge when we last discussed one of the greatest games of all time—a game he had never played: "Let's not do it again until you see Samus' face."
The Metroid Prime trilogy, arguably the best gaming trilogy ever, has just been re-issued as a $20 download on the Wii U. That’s a good reason for Kirk “never played a Metroid Prime” Hamilton to try them out. I had to see how that went.
We've had a couple of New 3DS XL systems in the U.S. for the last couple of weeks, one in my hands in New York City and one with Patricia out in San Francisco. We like the system, though we're not blown away by it. We have discussed this for your reading pleasure.
Marvel has been having a hell of a run lately, spinning its comics empire into successful, critically acclaimed movies and TV shows. So it's all the more disappointing that most Marvel video games don't measure up.
