The Outer Worlds' Font Size Is About To Get Even Bigger

The Outer Worlds' Font Size Is About To Get Even Bigger

Yesterday the developers at Obsidian announced that even though The Outer Worlds came out nearly five months ago, they’re still hard at work on improving its font sizes.

This is great news since the original text in The Outer Worlds was too damn small, and while Obsidian

added a large font option shortly after release , it’s still not always big enough. As someone who beat the game on Xbox One...

Outer Worlds Vs. Outer Wilds: The Comparison We Had To Make

Outer Worlds Vs. Outer Wilds: The Comparison We Had To Make

2019 was a truly bountiful year for video games. We received countless games of peerless quality, some not falling far from the hoary old tree of Genre, with others inventing new genres all by themselves. It is not difficult to draw lines between some of these standouts: Dota Underlords and Teamfight Tactics, Sekiro and Jedi: Fallen Order, Death Stranding and every other game to come out in...

Outer Worlds Developer Finds Bug That Caused Companions To Climb Infinite Ladders Until They Died

Outer Worlds Developer Finds Bug That Caused Companions To Climb Infinite Ladders Until They Died

Obsidian Entertainment’s games can tend to be glitchy. The Outer Worlds mostly bucks that trend, but at least one bug proved to be incredibly frustrating: a strange glitch stating that your companions were dead when they were, in actual fact, alive. This could lock players out of completing quests. Figuring out what was causing the issue took time, but the game’s quality assurance lead Taylor...

I Love Having My Own Spaceship In Video Games (And In Real Life)

I Love Having My Own Spaceship In Video Games (And In Real Life)
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

Here’s a good way to win me over in both real life and in video games: Give me a damn spaceship. If you did, you’d find that the majority of my complaints against your considerable flaws (we all have them, except Toad, who is the best) would disappear. Because I now have a spaceship, and I can...

The Outer Worlds Gets A Bigger Text Mode

The Outer Worlds Gets A Bigger Text Mode

The Outer Worlds received an all important new feature in today’s patch: a bigger text mode. Finally, no more squinting at my TV from six feet away.

The option to shift to the larger print can be found in the settings menu. There’s no slider so you can only toggle it on or off, but it’s a huge improvement. Sometimes I skip dialogue in The Outer Worlds because I just want to get to the quest,...

I Didn't Realize How Much I Love Suspending Games Until The Outer Worlds Took That Away

I Didn't Realize How Much I Love Suspending Games Until The Outer Worlds Took That Away

The Outer Worlds begins with your character coming out of cryo-sleep. They’ve been out of commission for years as their colony ship traveled across the galaxy, but once awakened they’re able to pick up right where they left off. I’ve come to take it for granted this console generation that my games can do this as well.

It’s become standard for consoles to checkpoint where your game is at...

Give Vicar Max A Chance In The Outer Worlds, Guys

Give Vicar Max A Chance In The Outer Worlds, Guys

When you first meet Maximillion DeSoto in The Outer Worlds, he has a snide comment about everything. When I recruited Felix, a nice kid who is trying his best, Max sneered about adopting street urchins. I disliked Vicar Max almost the moment he settled in with my party. He’s a dickhead, but after spending some time with him, I decided: He’s an interesting dickhead. Give the guy a chance.

I...

The Outer Worlds Does Colorblind Gaming Right

The Outer Worlds Does Colorblind Gaming Right

It’s cool that many modern games include colorblind options, so that those who struggle to differentiate between various hues can still enjoy the experience to the fullest. It’s even cooler, though, when a game is designed from the ground up with that support in mind.

Obsidian’s Josh Sawyer shared this info in a Tweet earlier in the week, saying that not one but two of the game’s directors had...

Save Time In The Outer Worlds By Being A Huge Dumbass

Save Time In The Outer Worlds By Being A Huge Dumbass

There are all kinds of speedrunning strategies out there, from finding ways outside the boundaries of the game world to manipulating seemingly random elements for favorable outcomes. Some of the most interesting utilize legitimate gameplay mechanics in interesting ways. In The Outer Worlds, for instance, a decent chunk of time can be saved by simply making your character a complete buffoon.

Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

Whenever I really love a piece of media, I make a mixtape of songs that remind me of it. As soon as I finished The Outer Worlds, I began compiling my mixtape. There’s something nice about having a compilation of songs that take you back to a tone and a mood, since it allows you to revisit a game...

The Outer Worlds Is A Virtual Theme Park Where Relationships Matter

The Outer Worlds Is A Virtual Theme Park Where Relationships Matter

The Outer Worlds feels like a throwback to old school Fallout, but with some topical issues and a couple of new tricks up its sleeve. It feels like a virtual theme park full of new adventures around every corner, and I’m totally hooked.

While I was expecting another expansive first-person roleplaying game with dialog trees, I was surprised how much I care about the characters and my...

The Outer Worlds Will Rattle Your Idea Of A Perfect Planet

The Outer Worlds Will Rattle Your Idea Of A Perfect Planet

The very first quest in The Outer Worlds, Obsidian’s highly anticipated first-person RPG out October 25, asked me to make what felt like an impossible choice. On one side was a community of outsiders frustrated by corporate control. Their outpost was something like a worker’s paradise—they were well fed and mostly happy, surviving by relying on each other. I admired their leader, Adelaide, for...
