This hour-long video on YouTube, whose title roughly translates to “One hour corridor ‘Chrono Trigger,’” plays the same three-minute “Corridors of Time” track from the game over and over again. It has over 1 million views, and it also has one of the most pleasant comment sections I’ve seen, full...

Wolfenstein's Best Hidden Feature Is All The Facist-Friendly Pop Songs

Wolfenstein's Best Hidden Feature Is All The Facist-Friendly Pop Songs

It’s kind of funny that video games still have collectibles. As their worlds become more detailed and awe-inspiring, it can seem tedious to still be reminded to turn around so you can gather more digital widgets. But the Wolfenstein series does collectibles well, using them to flesh out the game’s worlds in deft ways.

If you’re unfamiliar with the series, the games take place in an alternate...

I Love When Video Game Music Is So Good I Forget To Actually Play The Game

I Love When Video Game Music Is So Good I Forget To Actually Play The Game
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

One of my favorite games of the last several years is Facepalm Games’ The Swapper. I like it for a lot of reasons: it’s got this beautiful stop-motion clay art style, an immediately compelling hook in the titular Swapper, a gun that lets you clone yourself and zap your consciousness between those clones, and a...

Iron Maiden Is Suing The Video Game Ion Maiden

Ageing British metal band Iron Maiden (or at least the band’s holding company) are suing video game publisher 3D Realms over retro shooter Ion Maiden, claiming the game’s logo and marketing is “an effort to confuse consumers into believing Defendant’s products and services are somehow affiliated with or approved by Iron Maiden”.

Indie Band Shows Their Pokémon Love In New Release

Indie band Origami Angel’s upcoming EP, Gen 3, is packed with references to Pokémon. The limited edition cassette tapes, which have already sold out, feature art inspired by the franchise. Although the band’s guitarist and singer, Ryland Heagy, said that the songs aren’t necessarily Pokémon-themed, the series has affected him and his art in unusual ways. “Pokémon has reinforced a lot of the...

Kingdom Heartbeats Is The Perfect Name For A Kingdom Hearts Dance Remix Album

RoboRob is a noted producer of dancy electronic music. Kingdom Hearts is a beloved video game series filled with fluid, soulful music. Combine the two and you get Kingdom Heartbeats, a remix album featuring electronic takes on some of Kingdom Hearts’ best tunes. It even starts with a remix of “Simple and Clean.” If Kingdom Hearts proved anything, it’s that one can never have too many “Simple...

It's Time To Mario & Chill

Following on from last year’s Zelda & Chill, GameChops just released Mario & Chill, a synthwave mix that “explores the rich musical history of the Super Mario video game series through the lens of 80s and 90s electronica.”

By Helynt, it clocks in at just under 35 minutes and covers 12 Mario themes, from games like Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart, Super Mario World and Mario Galaxy.

Old Town Road, Covered By Animal Crossing's K.K. Slider

Old Town Road, Covered By Animal Crossing's K.K. Slider

While there is somehow still debate over whether Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road is truly “country” or not (it’s country as hell), there’s one place I think we can all agree it belongs: in Animal Crossing.

Just like he did with Travis Scott earlier in the year , Overspace has taken the Red Dead-ish banger (with help from DJ Cutman) and turned it into an Animal Crossing tune, with K.K. Slider on...
