Everything You Need To Know To Beat Hades (For The First Time)

If you haven’t cleared a run in

Hades , you’re not alone. Supergiant’s Greek-themed roguelike is many things, but “easy” sure isn’t one of them. Beating the game the first time will happen eventually, but the following advice should help you speed up the process.

Spoilers for Hades—nothing major, just some mentions of characters and locations.

Hades Is A Little Easier If You Swap The Switch’s Buttons

Hades Is A Little Easier If You Swap The Switch’s Buttons

After nearly two years, Hades, the story-driven roguelike from Supergiant Games, officially exited early access yesterday. It also

received a surprise release on the Switch. No matter your platform, Hades is good—like, stay-up-til-5-a.m. good . But, if you’re playing on Switch, you might find that some of the default controls are a little awkward. So it’s a good thing they’re fully...

Remember how Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre developer Supergiant promised that its Greek mythology-themed roguelike would leave early access sometime this fall? Well, it lied. The autumnal equinox isn’t until September 22, but Hades is officially out on PC and Switch today. Staff writer Ash Parrish, service and advice writer Ari Notis, and I (senior reporter Nathan Grayson) have all been...

Othercide Is A Goth Tactical RPG That Embraces Death

Othercide Is A Goth Tactical RPG That Embraces Death

Most tactical games condition you to avoid failure. In XCOM, once a character dies, they’re gone. Same for Fire Emblem (at least in Classic mode) and others of its ilk. Othercide isn’t like that. Playing Othercide means rewiring your brain to tolerate and even seek out failure. Death comes quickly and brutally and recurs ad infinitum. Good thing you get rewarded for it.

NBA 2K21: The Kotaku Review

When I sit down with 2K’s new basketball game every year, I normally only take the time to review its MyCareer mode, since that’s the part I’m most interested in. But this year I blew through it so quickly that I was able to play the rest of the game as well, so surprise, we’re getting a review of all of NBA 2K21.

Spellbreak Is Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Battle Royale, And It Owns

I am, by nature, regrettably competitive. I like winning—big fan of not falling on my face and eating shit, here—but win/lose scenarios fill me with anxiety. Spellbreak sank its hooks into me the moment I realized that it had made me stop caring about that. I was in the middle of a wild, multi-person melee. Gouts of flame belched out of rolling rock craters. Poison clouds obscured my vision....
