Paradox Is Quietly Testing A Strategy Game Subscription Service

Paradox Is Quietly Testing A Strategy Game Subscription Service

If there’s one thing about Paradox Interactive’s big PC strategy games, it’s that they’re nearly always fantastic. And if there are two things, it’s that they quickly become bogged down with hundreds of dollars worth of DLC that looks absolutely daunting to any potential new players.

Take, for example, Europa Universalis IV, which is very good. Let’s say that you get sick of hearing people say...

Improbably, a new Half-Life game is coming out in just a couple of months. To celebrate, Valve hosted an AMA on Reddit today, audaciously claiming, among other things, that the game won’t be delayed and confirming a truth we already knew in our hearts: all Half-Life games must have at...

FTL, Released In 2012, Is Now Getting Achievements

FTL, Released In 2012, Is Now Getting Achievements

Deep space death simulator FTL has for almost eight years existed with a single achievement: avoiding a sense of overwhelming despair as your carefully-cultivated run through the stars comes to a violent and bullshit end. That’s soon going to be joined by some more official company.

While not live yet, the game’s list of achievements are now live on FTL’s Steam page. You can’t see what...

Temtem Is A Pokémon Clone That Looks Pretty Cool

Temtem Is A Pokémon Clone That Looks Pretty Cool

Temtem is an MMO out this week that, in many and very obvious ways, is trying to be the kind of Pokémon game people have wanted for years but have never actually gotten.

I mean, just look at this:

And this!

So, yes, Pokémon. Only you fight with two monsters at once instead of one, letting you team up and string together combos, and it’s an MMO, so you can wander around the...

Kingpin, One Of The Dirtiest Shooters Of The 90s, Is Coming Back

Kingpin, One Of The Dirtiest Shooters Of The 90s, Is Coming Back

It’s all but forgotten now, but in 1999 Kingpin was kind of a big deal, pitched as an unashamedly adult first-person shooter that was going to be video gaming’s answer to Frank Miller’s Sin City.

That was the idea, anyway. And despite some notable press at the time—it even got a mention on the floor of the US Senate amidst debates around violent video games in the wake of the Columbine...

The Week In Games: Here's Your Re Mind(er) About Kingdom Hearts III DLC

The Week In Games: Here's Your Re Mind(er) About Kingdom Hearts III DLC

This week one of the biggest releases is not actually a game, but instead some DLC for a game. The first big DLC is coming out this week for Kingdom Hearts 3.

Recently, we showed a friend who has almost zero knowledge of Kingdom Hearts some footage and trailers of Kingdom Hearts III. Her reaction was a mix of confusion and laughter. Maybe a bit of regret too. But it was fun to watch her watch...

The PC version of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has been out for less than a day, and already Goku has been transformed from fighting legend to untitled goose. Behold the chaos that mad modder Mastaklo has wrought.

There are currently three mods on the Video Game Mods Kakarot website. One is a Latin American translation of the game. The second turns Goku into CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas....

Disco Elysium's Dialogue Is Like A Good Tweet

Disco Elysium's Dialogue Is Like A Good Tweet

The other day, I tried to recommend Disco Elysium to Kotaku traitor and noted single-player game hater Cecilia D’Anastasio. Spinning an ode to the game’s masterful mixture of character writing and subtle world-building would, I knew, accomplish nothing. Instead, I decided to appeal directly to my target demographic, who tends to prefer competitive multiplayer games like Overwatch. “Talking to...

World Of Warcraft's New Update Unleashes Eldritch Horrors On Azeroth

Twisted creatures from nightmare realms invade Azeroth in this week’s Visions of N’Zoth update for World of Warcraft. Am I talking about the minions of titular Old God N’Zoth, who seeks to engulf the world in his dreadful embrace, or the thousands of fox-eared Vulpera now trampling the planet in the name of the Horde? A little column A, a little column B.

The final big story push before the

Minecraft Player Gets Electrocuted Every Time He Takes Damage

Congratulations, Dream and GeorgeNotFound. You have found the worst way possible to play Minecraft.

For a while now Dream, a Minecraft YouTuber, and his buddy GeorgeNotFound have been working on a way to attach an electrified dog collar to a human arm, then rig it via an Arduino board so that every time a player takes damage in the game, they get shocked.

(Firstly, why would you do this? And...

The Week In Games: Rock The Dragon!

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming out this week. I only know two things about this game: It comes out soon and it is Dragon Ball Z game. I’ve played some great Dragon Ball Z games and some really, really bad games. I hope this one is good!

This might be one of the best TV show intro songs ever created. It is up there with the X-Men animated show theme and the Buffy theme. As a kid,...

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Is Deleting Some Players' PC Save Files

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Is Deleting Some Players' PC Save Files

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne came out on PC last week, and while for many it was a hassle-free experience, some older players logged on to unwittingly delete their old save data.

The issue appears to be affecting those who haven’t logged into the game for a while, leading to speculation it could be related to an older save not liking the newer version of the game.

Whatever the cause, the...

Over a decade later and it still boggles the mind how much work and cool shit people can come up with in Minecraft. The latest example being this enormous recreation of the world of Harry Potter.

Minecraft School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a project being run by a small group of students who have built many of Harry Potter’s most iconic locations, and are now looking at stitching them all...

‘90s classic Sensible Soccer, which alongside NBA Jam is one of the purest expressions of arcade sports simplicity, hasn’t had an official release in over a decade. A new mod for the original, out now, more than makes up for that.

The Battlefront II Popes

The Battlefront II Popes

Ah, it’s nice to see a Battlefront mod look beyond the Star Wars universe and incorporate spiritual representatives from other faiths. Like *checks notes* the Catholic Church.

This mod, by xD0IT, turns Kylo Ren (and what looks like Luke’s face) into a young Pope John Paul II, who in our world was a devout man of peace, but who in Star Wars is going to fuck some shit up with his crucifix...
