Devin “DVO” Roth is the art director on the animated series Final Space, and he’s also worked on shows like Bob’s Burgers and Duck Tales.
It didn’t make any sense. “What are they doing, dude?” asked Houston Outlaws tank Austin “Muma” Wilmot as the other team, made up of top-ranked players including LA Gladiators tank Chan-hyung “Fissure” Baek, repeatedly crashed against the holo-shield walls of a relatively lackadaisical defense. Then it hit him:…
Scythe, one of the best board games in years, is now in Early Access on Steam. It’s a very bare-bones port, though, so you might be better off playing the Tabletopia version instead, at least for now.
Red Rover is a driving game on Steam that drops you in the seat of a very overpowered Mars rover and lets you explore the actual surface of the red planet.
I think we all took the Xbox 360 for granted. Other all-time greats like the SNES and PS2 seem to be remembered more fondly than Microsoft’s console, which tends to be recalled as more of a thing that happened than a platform to be treasured.
You can now buy a teeny tiny Xbox One S for your American Girl doll. I might actually buy this.
The developers at Croteam, the studio that makes the Serious Sam games, are looking to do the unthinkable with the fourth numbered installment in the series: render 100,000 enemies on screen at the same time. Watching a hands-off demo of the game behind closed doors at E3, I was excited to see that feat in action, and…
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has finally joined Xbox One’s backwards compatibility list. If you didn’t keep your old Xbox 360 disc, the digital game is currently on sale for $14.99 with this week’s Deals with Gold.
Sometimes I wonder if writing about sex games has ruined me. It’s certainly ruined my experience of Steam, given that my home page recommendations are now made up of roughly 50 percent visual novels that are really just two-hour-long excuses to look at anime boobs.
Sea of Thieves is slowly expanding with new monsters and new events aiming to bring excitement and color to a game derided for repetitive content. A new event involving exploring and hunting down hidden thrones throughout the world shows one way the controversial pirate game could build a community.
This was the first E3 I’ve attended IRL, and I spent most of it interviewing producers of games like Splatoon 2, Jump Force and SoulCalibur 6. Between learning tidbits about whether Splatoon 2’s squid kids eat squid and why SoulCalibur 6’s women still look like pin-ups, I managed to play a few upcoming games that I’m…
Frostpunk’s survivor mode is live today. The mode only has pause in menus and you can only save on exit, so there goes my ability to retcon my bad decisions. Sounds fun!
Every day after E3, I loaded up my run of Stardew Valley on Switch. I optimized my crop layouts, looked up which plants were most profitable, and grinded in the dungeon until I could upgrade all my farming tools twice over. It was probably the most stressful way to play the game, but it was the only way I could think…
This year is the 25th anniversary of the release of the original Jurassic Park film and the start of a massive franchise. Four films, with a fifth film releasing later this month and a sixth film already planned, multiple comic books, toys and of course video games. The first Jurassic Park game came out in June 1993,…
At E3 in Los Angeles last week, we recorded a lot of episodes of Kotaku Splitscreen. For your convenience, here’s a roundup of all of them.
An essential part of Fallout’s visual identity is that it’s heavily based on Americana, but concept artist Fernanders Sam wanted to explore what other parts of Bethesda’s nuke-blasted world would look like.
In the universe of FAR: Lone Sails, the world is ending. The seabed has dried up, most people are gone, and you’re left to wander the wastes alone in a rickety old ship that’s constantly running out of fuel and breaking down. As depressing as all that sounds, though, the game is actually a nice little trip.
On Steam, “asset flip” refers to a game that’s haphazardly assembled from pre-purchased environments, objects, and sound effects for the purpose of making a quick buck. Or at least that’s what it’s supposed to refer to. Over time, the definition of “asset flip” seems to have devolved into “anything that ever uses a…
The Xbox One’s new avatars are almost here. An editor is rolling out to Xbox Insiders now that lets them build and tweak their avatars ahead of the actual release of the mascots, which MS says is coming “soon”.
Here is a very good mod that takes the gruff military characters from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and replaces them with the cast of the Neptunia JRPG series. Even in the singleplayer campaign, even in zombies mode.
