Upcoming Exploration RPG Greedfall Has My Attention

Upcoming Exploration RPG Greedfall Has My Attention

When I was first asked to preview Greedfall, an upcoming RPG by Spiders, I didn’t really know what to expect. Its vast world, packed with ruins and frontier towns, captured a sense of discovery but also evoked a strange apprehension in me. Greedfall brims with potential and clever ideas, yet even after playing it, I can’t tell if it will mark a powerful recreation of BioWare-esque storytelling...

Playing PC Building Simulator On My Switch Feels Weird

Playing PC Building Simulator On My Switch Feels Weird
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

I’ve been installing motherboards, CPUs, memory sticks, hard drives, power supplies, and video cards into computer cases for nearly three decades. With last week’s console release of PC Building Simulator, now I’m putting together gaming rigs on my Nintendo Switch. It’s surreal.

Demoed in 2017 and released in...

It turns out that Minecraft is getting a visual update after all, just not the one that was originally promised. Over night, graphics card makers Nvidia announced a new update for the game that will add Minecraft to the growing list of PC games that support real-time ray tracing.

The Week In Games: Totally Rad

The Week In Games: Totally Rad

Yo, this upcoming week is totally tubular and rad. Like, you know it is just super rad. Very gnarly. Other 80s slang and phrases. Rad is coming out next week. I love the look of this game, but it doesn’t sound like it is very......rad . See what I did there? Moving on.

Next weekend I won’t be here. I will be out in the world, traveling the roads and stopping at fast food joints in other...

Dota 2 Fans' Reactions To Hong Kong Protests Take Over Twitch Chat Of $33 Million Tournament

Dota 2 Fans' Reactions To Hong Kong Protests Take Over Twitch Chat Of $33 Million Tournament

We’re just days away from the biggest Dota 2 event of the year, the annual International tournament with its $33 million prize pool. Normally, this would be a time of celebration, but throughout the group stages leading into the August 20 main event, hardly anybody in Twitch chat has been talking about the games. Instead, fans have been in an uproar over Valve’s decision to host the...

It's Like Old-School LucasArts Made A Game About Cthulhu With A Talking Cat

It's Like Old-School LucasArts Made A Game About Cthulhu With A Talking Cat

The Necronomicon is a legendary book of unspeakable evil and immeasurable power, capable of summoning creatures of mind-melting horror into existence or bringing about the end of all things. In the new PC game Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure, the abominable tome turns a perfectly normal cat into a talking one, and she’s not happy about it at all.

Combining the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft...

No Man's Sky Beyond Makes A Great First Impression, Except For The Bugs

No Man's Sky Beyond Makes A Great First Impression, Except For The Bugs

No Man’s Sky’s Beyond update has the same pull for all the checklist and spreadsheet lovers out there as it always has, with a lot less of the frustration.

As annoyed as I am that I can’t get into my old save for No Man’s Sky right now, I also can’t wait to play more. So far, I’ve done a bunch of things I couldn’t do before: I sat in chairs, watched non-playable characters walk around a space...

Demon's Souls Can Now Run At 4K And 60 FPS (In An Emulator)

Demon's Souls Can Now Run At 4K And 60 FPS (In An Emulator)

You’ll need a powerful PC and a copy of the original game, but thanks to a new patch to the PS3 emulator RPCS3, it’s now possible to play the 2009 action-role-playing game Demon’s Souls in 4K while running at 60 frames per second.

This has been a dream for Demon’s Souls fans for several years now, going back to when homebrew developers were first able to get the game running PC back in 2017 ....

Everyone's DayZ Is Being Edited Because Of Australia

Everyone's DayZ Is Being Edited Because Of Australia

Last week, zombie shooter DayZ—which has been out in various forms for six years—had first its physical release banned in Australia , and then its digital version as well. In order to get the game cleared, Bohemia Interactive are changing every version across the planet just to comply with Australia’s classification guidelines.

Since it’s impractical to create a new version just for...

The Division 2 Devs Remove New Mode Weeks After Launch To Make It Better

The Division 2 Devs Remove New Mode Weeks After Launch To Make It Better

Adding stuff to a game months after release? That’s usually good news. Removing it a few weeks later? That tends to not go over as well.

Members of The Division 2’s community have been expressing confusion and aggravation since late last week following confirmation that the game’s Expedition area, which was released just last month, is being cycled out tomorrow.

A Ubisoft representative,...

System Shock 2 Has Been Getting New Patches For Years, Based On The Work Of A Fan Nobody Can Find

System Shock 2 Has Been Getting New Patches For Years, Based On The Work Of A Fan Nobody Can Find

System Shock 2 is a beloved classic, a fascinating tangle of shooter, survival horror, and role-playing systems that intermingle and spark with a frightening menace. After developer Looking Glass Studios closed in 2000, the game wound up in ownership limbo. For a time, it languished without updates. Getting it to run on more modern machines increasingly became a massive hassle. Then, in 2012,...

Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

The problem with making a game about a superhero like Superman is figuring out ways to impose limits on the character to make sure he’s not overpowered. Undefeated, a free superhero PC game created by a trio of students from Japan’s Vantan Game Academy, demonstrates just how unnecessary those limits might be.

The Week In Games: Jason Returns, Again

The Week In Games: Jason Returns, Again

You can never really escape Jason Voorhees. The masked slasher from The Friday The 13th films is returning again this week. A new edition of The Friday The 13th game is heading to the Nintendo Switch.

I wonder if in 20 or 30 years people will still be making and watching Jason films. How many times can you reboot and remake this franchise? Is he even that scary anymore after spending decades...

Which came first, the name Hamsterdam or the game Hamsterdam? However Muse Games came up with the name for this charming tap-and-swipe beat-em up, it fits. Once little Pimm starts doling out the beatdowns, it’s like, “Damn, hamster.”

Released earlier this month for iOS, Android, Switch, and PC, Hamsterdam is a story...

Blizzard Creates Tool To Help Old World Of Warcraft Buddies Find Each Other

Blizzard Creates Tool To Help Old World Of Warcraft Buddies Find Each Other

If you’ve been a lapsed World of Warcraft player for the past 10-plus years, you’ve probably let some relationships fall by the wayside—for example, the entire guild that formed the core of your social life when you were in a suffocatingly small Christian high school in Texas. Maybe you’ve found yourself sipping a beverage in the loneliest corner of your local bar wondering, “What ever...

Epic Store Rage Has Gotten Out Of Hand

The developers of cutesy Animal Crossing-Pokemon mashup Ooblets just had a weekend from hell . After trying to preempt a tidal wave of rage over their newly announced Epic Games Store exclusivity, they got hit with a swirling tsunami of foaming-at-the-mouth anger, up to and including death threats and anti-Semitic hoaxes. This is the worst overreaction to an Epic deal that’s yet been...

Age Of Wonders: Planetfall Is For Civ Players In A Hurry

For the last week or so I’ve been playing Age of Wonders: Planetfall, the latest game in the long-running 4X series. It is, somehow, the first one of these games I’ve ever played.

I don’t how or why that is—it mixes Civilization’s 4X with XCOM’s tactical battles, and those are very much my things—but it is what it is, and so unlike most other impressions of the game you’ll read this week, this...

PUBG Is Steadily Improving And Winning Back Players

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds officially released a year and a half ago. In that time, competitors like Fortnite Battle Royale and Apex Legends have arguably surpassed it for popularity. But PUBG has quietly persisted, and the developers continue to address player concerns. In the last month, it’s drawn back popular streamers and breathed fresh life into the game.

Beyond popularizing the...
