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 Week In Games: Rock The Dragon!

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,...

The Week In Games: Monster Hunters On Ice

The Week In Games: Monster Hunters On Ice

After last week, this week seems like a flood of new games. Not too many big games, but the Monster Hunter: World expansion Iceborne is finally hitting PC this week. So if you are a Monster Hunter fan who plays on PC, get a winter coat and get ready.

I already did a Week In Games post about Iceborne when it first came out, so I had to find a new ice/snow related title for this post. I first...

The Week In Games: It's A Bit Of A Ghost Town...

The Week In Games: It's A Bit Of A Ghost Town...

The last days of 2019 are here and the first days of 2020 are coming. And there aren’t new games coming out during the transition to a new year.

Seriously, if you thought last week was a quiet week, look down below this paragraph and see how short the list is this week. I had to dig around Steam to find games to put on this list.

Anyways, have a great 2020!

Monday, Dec. 30Guntech | PC,...

The Week In Games: One More Wii U Game...

The Week In Games: One More Wii U Game...

It is nearly 2020 and yet, on this list of games releasing this week, you will find a Wii U game. It’s a Christmas miracle.

Digging around for information about this Wii U game, it was released on the Wii U in Europe back in 2017. And for some reason, in 2019, it is finally coming to the Wii U eShop in the United States.

Beyond a surprise Wii U release, the upcoming pweek is filled with a few...

The Week In Games: The Goose Is Loose On PS4 And Xbox One

The Week In Games: The Goose Is Loose On PS4 And Xbox One

HONK! The internet’s favorite game, Untitled Goose Game, is coming to PS4 and Xbox One this week. Meanwhile, the rest of the week is mostly empty. As usual, this close to Christmas means fewer games are coming out.

These next few weeks are the perfect time to catch up on games you wanted to play this year or finally finish that game you started but never completed. For me, I’ll be finishing up...

The Week In Games: Giant Robots!

The Week In Games: Giant Robots!

MechWarrior 5 headlines a week filled with smaller games and ports. I know a lot of folks are pumped for MechWarrior 5 and I hope it’s great!

I never played any of the MechWarrior games, but I did play a lot of MechAssault on Xbox. I also remember watching people playing MechWarrior 4 on G4, which was one of my very first experiences with televised esports. I found a clip of the show on...

The Week In Games: 20 Nights At Freddy's

The Week In Games: 20 Nights At Freddy's

November is almost over and the month is leaving with a final, quiet week. Not much releasing this month. But for fans of the Five Nights At Freddy’s games, I’ve got good news. The first four games in the popular horror franchise are arriving on Switch this week.

The release of these FNAF games on Switch is strange. They are on the Nintendo Eshop’s coming soon section, but sites originally...

The Week In Games: Shenmu3

The Week In Games: Shenmu3

The impossible is happening. After years and years and years of waiting, Shenmue III is finally, actually, for real coming out this week. Wild times we live in.

I have zero interest in Shenmue III, but I am so happy that it will be released. The first and second games always seemed like important games to a lot of folks and now they finally get the third game after over a decade of waiting....

The Week In Games: The British (Pokémon) Are Coming!

The Week In Games: The British (Pokémon) Are Coming!

A brand new Pokémon game is releasing this week. I’m not even a big Pokémon fan and I’m still excited about Sword and Shield, the first big main entry Pokémon RPG to land on home consoles. Sure, not all the Pokémon from the past are coming back, but I doubt the internet will get angry about that...

Actually, it seems like the internet, at least part of it, is very upset about this. I get some...

The Week In Games: The Sweet Release Of Death Stranding

Finally, after years of weird teasers and trailers, we all will have a chance to sit down and actually play Death Stranding. Starring Norman Reedus, Death Stranding releases for PS4 this week. If you are curious to know more about the game, check out the great review from Heather Alexandra that’s already on the site.

The Week In Games: Busting Makes Luigi Feel Good

The Week In Games: Busting Makes Luigi Feel Good

Luigi we all love you and your funny antics. But we also love sending you into scary and haunted places and making you catch ghosts. I’m so sorry, but you have to do it all again in Luigi’s Mansion 3, releasing this week for Nintendo Switch.

Spooky ghost stories! Do you folks have any? Personally, I’ve experienced some strange and weird stuff in my life, but I don’t think I have any ghost...

The Week In Games: Outta This World

The Outer Worlds comes out this week. For many fans, this is the true follow-up to Fallout New Vegas they’ve been waiting for. But it isn’t the only big and exciting game coming out this week. Get ready folks, it’s a busy week!

I have constantly mixed up The Outer Worlds and Outer Wilds when talking about these games with other writers at Kotaku. It doesn’t help that they are both games set...

The Week In Games: The Baba Yaga Is Almost Here...

John Wick Hex is releasing this week, bringing the Baba Yaga his own video game. It looks cool and I’m excited to play it. I hope there’s a pencil in the game I can use to kill everyone. That feels like a perfect Easter egg to include.

I didn’t see the first John Wick film until a few months before the second film was released. I initially thought that the film was about candles or something...

The Week In Games: Beware Of Ghosts

The Week In Games: Beware Of Ghosts

This week Ghost Recon Breakpoint releases, letting players explore a large open-world map as super tactical soldiers. If it is anything like the last game, it also means players will be able to cause all sorts of mayhem using vehicles and explosives.

I enjoyed the gameplay of the last Ghost Recon game, Wildlands, but the world felt so boring and the story never hooked me that I stopped about...

The Week In Games: Duck... Duck... Untitled Goose Game!

Have you ever dreamed of being a goose who annoys people? Well, then you’ve probably already heard about Untitled Goose Game, which is coming out later this week. If you haven’t heard about it, well I’m happy to be the one to introduce you to your dream game.

When I about 8 years old, my brother, who was 6 years old and I loved the Muscovy ducks that would visit our home in Florida. They were...

The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

After a long wait, the new Borderlands is finally coming out this week. Borderlands 3 is releasing for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and bringing with it some ridiculous number of guns. Maybe too much loot, really?

Some folks call games like Borderlands 3 “shlooters.” This is a silly word, but also is a very strange word for me. I’ve done floor covering installation and repair in my past, helping my...

The Week In Games: Off The Chain!

The Week In Games: Off The Chain!

It’s almost September, and you know what that means. It’s time to ride the cybernetic battle cat of your dreams into the alien frey. Huzzah!

PlatinumGames’ newest Nintendo exclusive is finally here, and it looks like it might actually live up to the hype. I still don’t really understand what the game is about, but the main characters are very attractive and the stylized combat looks like a...

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...

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...
