Testing Doom Eternal On Low-End Graphics Cards

Testing Doom Eternal On Low-End Graphics Cards

Earlier this week we benchmarked Doom Eternal extensively, but only using modern GPUs. Seeing that the game keeps receiving praise, we decided to go further and test it on a more ample number of graphics cards. This time we have a little over 40 GPUs tested at 1080p using the low-quality preset, with and without dynamic resolution scaling.

In a way, this works out to be a good guide for gamers...

I'm Haunted By The Eyes Of The New Michael Keaton Batman Figure

I'm Haunted By The Eyes Of The New Michael Keaton Batman Figure

Despite fan protests and being encased within a costume without a movable neck, Michael Keaton’s 1989 Batman is fondly remembered as one of the Dark Knight’s best big-screen adventures. Those eyes, though. Damn those eyes.

Thanks to that non-moving neck, the movie and its first sequel are filled with shots of Keaton’s large, emotive eyes from weird angles, with plenty of bright white and...

Some Players Are Adding Sexy Stuff To Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Some Players Are Adding Sexy Stuff To Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not a sexy game. But that hasn’t stopped the drawings of dicks and breasts, sexy custom outfits and more. All this is inevitable, I know!

Note: This article has NSFW content that some readers might find objectionable.

As Kotaku previously posted investigative report, if people can create dicks in a game, they will.

But first, know that in New Horizons, people...

Uno, You're Looking Different

Uno, You're Looking Different

This minimal and very striking Uno redesign has been done by Brazilian designer Warleson Oliveira, and while it looks like the kind of thing that’ll be sold for $100 at a select few stores around the world, Mattel is actually going to be giving this thing a widespread and affordable release.

With an all-black card design and smaller iconography, it’s probably not as easy to play as the...

HQ Trivia Is Back

HQ Trivia Is Back

HQ Trivia, the once-massive online quiz game that last year kinda stopped paying winners their cash then shut down in February , is back thanks to an “anonymous investor”.

As the Wall Street Journal report, a push notification went out earlier tonight alerting users HQ Trivia would be resuming at 9pm.

There are no details on who this investor is, how much they’ve stumped up, how long the show...

Now Some NFL Players Are Playing Madden On TV

Now Some NFL Players Are Playing Madden On TV

If real sports are going to be successful in the online (and televised) space over the next few months, the one thing they need above all others is participation from actual athletes. That’s why the La Liga and NASCAR tournaments have been so fun, and is why it’s a bit worrying that Fox and the NFL’s version only has eight entrants.

GameStop Will Close Over 300 Stores This Year

The Week In Games: Return To Raccoon City, Again

The Week In Games: Return To Raccoon City, Again

It’s time to return to Raccoon City, again. (Again .) Resident Evil 3, the remake, is out this week and I’m ready to run away in fear from the big boy himself, Nemesis.

It feels like it was only a few years ago when Resident Evil as a franchise felt like it was dying. There were some good games released here and there, like Revelations, but for the most part, it wasn’t in a good place. Then...

This Isn't A Real Forest, But Something Made In Dreams

This Isn't A Real Forest, But Something Made In Dreams

This might look like a slightly out of focus video clip of someone exploring a forest near a river, but this is actually in-game footage of something made in Dreams on PS4.

This amazing Dreams world was created by BadRobo82 and while it seem like something made in Unity or even Unreal, this entire thing was created in Dreams. The trees, the textures, the clouds, the grass, the water in the...

Half-life: Alyx Is Still Good, Even While Sitting In A Chair

Half-life: Alyx Is Still Good, Even While Sitting In A Chair
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

Standing in VR is cool. You feel like you are really standing in a virtual world. And for small experiences and mini-games, this is fine. But for something like the new Half-Life: Alyx, standing for hours and hours, plus crouching a lot, can start to make you feel sore and tired. So I just sat...

'Shop Contest: Nemesis Is Here

Did you hear that? The deadly and dangerous Nemesis said something. Not his usual “STARS” groan. Something else. He said... “SHOP CONTEST.” Weird.

Your challenge this week: Add Nemesis from Resident Evil 3 to other games.

You thought you were safe from this dude because you jumped over to Fortnite or GTA Online? Nope. He can get you, even if you stop playing Resident Evil 3 or its upcoming...

How's It Going?: Pancakes Vs Waffles Edition

How's It Going?: Pancakes Vs Waffles Edition

Welcome back to our daily open thread. The world seems to be a giant mess of pain, suffering and bad news. So let’s chat about something silly.

Pancakes vs. waffles is a debate that has.. well not really “raged on”, but existed in diners and on forums for a long time. I’m firmly on #teamwaffle. Waffles have those wonderful divots dotting both sides, allowing for extra crispiness. They also...

The Punch-Out Speedrunning Community Spent Five Years Trying To Beat One Player And All His Records

The Punch-Out Speedrunning Community Spent Five Years Trying To Beat One Player And All His Records

Back in the early 90s and early 2000s, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for the NES was a popular early speedrunning game. But eventually, players moved on. However, one player went back to some old Punch-Out fansites in 2010 and discovered that every world record at the time had been set by one player, Matt Turk. Nobody had even tied any of his times.

This story, of a community coming together to...
