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...

The Week In Games: Mr. President, Your Mech Is Ready

The Week In Games: Mr. President, Your Mech Is Ready

After years and years of being a Japan-only Xbox release, Metal Wolf Chaos is finally come out in more places later this week. Now we can all experience the fun of being the President of The United States and using a giant mech to fight the Vice President’s evil army.

This weekend has sucked due to some terrible acts of violence and hatred that happened over here in the US. So I don’t really...

The Week In Games: Are You Ready For Some Football?

The Week In Games: Are You Ready For Some Football?

Like taxes and death, we can never really escape the yearly Madden games. If you love football, then get ready. This week Madden NFL 20 releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

I’ve never been a big fan of sports video games outside of Blitz and the dunk contests in some of the NBA games. But I did play a bit of Madden back on the PS2 and Xbox. I remember I would take popular teams and move them to...

The Week In Games: Once Again, It's Time To Kill Some Nazis

The Week In Games: Once Again, It's Time To Kill Some Nazis

It feels like only yesterday that I played through the last Wolfenstein game and now a new one is almost here. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a smaller spin-off starring BJ’s two daughters. I can’t wait to kill some Nazis during the 80s.

I’m still impressed that this game, like the last Wolfenstein title, is coming to Switch. I’ll never play those games on Switch, the performance is just too...

The Week In Games: Avengers And Everyone Else, Assemble!

The Week In Games: Avengers And Everyone Else, Assemble!

The Avengers, their friends and some of their foes are hitting the Switch this week with the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Pick your favorite hero and argue with your friends who is getting stuck playing with the right Joycon.

I really loved that first Ultimate Alliance game. Played a lot of it back in the day on 360. Never really got into the second game as much, for whatever reason....

The Week In Games: Episode Duscae

The Week In Games: Episode Duscae

This isn't the Week in Games you wanted but fear not, there's a demo for the Week in Games you wanted included in this Week in Games.

How many people with absolutely no interest in Final Fantasy Typo will be picking up the game this week just to get their hands on the demo for Final Fantasy XV? I'm guessing more than 27.

The Week In Games: Summertime

The Week In Games: Summertime

In case there was any doubt about it (there wasn’t) it’s officially summertime, time to put down our video games and go outside to play in the deadly, deadly sunshine. No thank you.

It’s also an excellent time to go through one’s backlog of games. Most of this week’s releases are either re-releases or relatively light fare, so download those for the bathroom/bedroom and occupy your hopefully...

The Week In Games: The Doctor Will See You Now

The Week In Games: The Doctor Will See You Now

Dr. Mario has fired his brother, Dr. Luigi, and now has control over the clinic once more and he is ready to start giving people pills. So many pills. Dr. Mario World for phones is coming out later this week.

I don’t think Mario is qualified to be a doctor, and I don’t think Luigi is any more qualified, either. What I want to know is, who in the Mario universe is actually qualified to be a...

The Week In Games: A Large <i>Order</i> Of <i>Kirby</i>

Why wait until Friday for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, when you can wait until Friday for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and The Order: 1886 as well?

No Sony. No, no no. Friday is Nintendo's day. Why you gotta encroach?

The Week In Games: Happy New Year?

The Week In Games: Happy New Year?

Unless you own a PlayStation 3 or Vita, you can skip the next few weeks.

Truth be told, there are plenty of lovely indie games coming out on Steam over the next couple of weeks, but if I tried to keep track of every upcoming Steam release I would go insane. And so I stick to bigger PC releases and consoles, which leaves us with not much until January 20, when Saints Row IV hits PlayStation 4...

This Week in Games is dedicated to Li Li, our resident Heroes of the Storm expert’s favorite underaged female panda.

I’m not going to name names or point fingers at Yannick. I’m just saying he (or she, but really he) is platonically in love with an anthropomorphic video game bear.

I blurred the name to protect the...

The Week In Games: The E3 Lull

The Week In Games: The E3 Lull

Everybody get out of the way, the industry’s most press-hungry trade show coming through!

While we’re still a week away from E3 2015, the game release calendar is as bare as it would be if the show were in full swing. Nothing is as futile as attempting to get the gaming press to look at a new release during the biggest news week of the year, so we’ve got incredibly slim pickings.

I’m not...

The Week In Games: Summer Things

The Week In Games: Summer Things

Stranger Things season 3 is almost here and next week, to coincide with the new season, a game based on the popular show launches on all major platforms. Will Barb return? (Probably not.)

Speaking of strange(r) things, if you scan through this list, you might notice something odd. In the year 2019, we have a WiiU game coming out. According to Nintendo’s official website, Horror Stories is...

The Week In Games: Start Your Engines! 

The Week In Games: Start Your Engines! 

Trials Rising, the newest entry in the dirt bike filled franchise, releases this Tuesday. I’ve been a fan of the Trials games since playing Trials HD back on my Xbox 360. I didn’t really play much of Trials Fusion, the previous game in the franchise. I have no idea why other than I was busy with other things.

I’ve never been on a dirt bike in my entire life, but I have driven a four wheeler a...

Week In Games: Let's Go Make Another Mario

Week In Games: Let's Go Make Another Mario

Perhaps the best-known game coming out this week is Super Mario Maker 2, a sequel much anticipated by many of us here at Kotaku, not to mention Mario fans everywhere. But that’s not the only cool game on the docket this week. There’s a Switch port of the original Devil May Cry, plus the 2019 remake of fighting game classic Samurai Shodown, and also, the long-awaited release of the English...

The Week In Games: Baseball Season

The Week In Games: Baseball Season

It's baseball season, which means I'll be playing just about every game on this week's release list but the baseball ones! Touchdown!

I'll probably start off with some Axiom Verge on the PS4, maybe see how Toukiden handle the move to current-gen, and then ride out the week with some peaceful farm life in Story of Seasons. Maybe I'll hop into the Xbox One version of MMORPG Neverwinter as well,...

The Week In Games: If You Ain't Outta Control, You Ain't-A Bandicoot

The Week In Games: If You Ain't Outta Control, You Ain't-A Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot and his crew are racing on to consoles soon when Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled releases later this week. Just remember: Speed kills, but you can always respawn.

So when do we see a new Crash Bandicoot game? Not a remake of older games, but a brand new platformer using the new art style seen in these newest games in the franchise. Seems like we can’t be more than a year or two...
