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...

Everything Microsoft Showed On Today's Inside Xbox

Microsoft showed off Gears of War 5's horde mode, NBA 2k20's career mode, and the new games coming to Game Pass during its latest episode of Inside Xbox.

The episode spanned over an hour and a half, and while it was mostly full of new trailers for games we already new about, there were a few interesting bits of new information sprinkled throughout.

Here’s the full rundown:

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...

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...

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...

Players Say No Man's Sky Beyond Is Crashing, And Developers Promise A Fix Soon

Players Say No Man's Sky Beyond Is Crashing, And Developers Promise A Fix Soon

No Man’s Sky players are saying that Beyond is running poorly on console, with frequent crashes. Hello Games says they’re aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

This morning, I woke up at 6 a.m. eager to start playing No Man’s Sky Beyond. After my download finally finished a few hours later, I opened up my old save to begin milking aliens. It immediately crashed. Then it crashed another...

Video Game Consoles Won't Get Pricier In America, At Least For Now

A 10 percent tax on video game consoles and other consumer electronics has been delayed until December 15, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced today. According to President Trump, the purpose of the delay is to prevent the tariffs from hurting the holiday shopping season.

The next round of tariffs in the Trump administration’s ongoing trade-war with China is...

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,...

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...

PUBG Is Steadily Improving And Winning Back Players

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...

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...

Wolfenstein: Youngblood: The Kotaku Review

Wolfenstein: Youngblood: The Kotaku Review

I am generally suspicious of games that people say are “better with friends,” simply because most things are. Manual labor, paying taxes, repeatedly hitting your thumb with a hammer—these are all things that are “better with friends.” Humans are social creatures, and company can make both miserable and pleasant things a whole lot better. “Better with friends” is rarely a good selling...

The new vehicle is showcased in a trailer for Fortnite Season 10 (or X, as they’re calling it).

An official blog post outlining the seasonal changes to Fortnite Battle Royale and the game’s other modes. It promotes the...

I Wish To Inform You That Another Garfield Kart Has Been Made

I Wish To Inform You That Another Garfield Kart Has Been Made

Garfield Kart came out in 2013 , was ignored, then reborn in 2018 as a thing, because the internet has taken the lazy cat and reshaped it in its image . The game is now getting a sequel on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Switch.

It is once again a cart racing game, only starring Garfield, and Odie, and Jon, and five other characters, and it has 16 tracks that are “inspired by the world of Garfield.”

Two Years Later, Minecraft Still Doesn't Have Its Xbox One X Graphics Enhancements

The Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft was announced at E3 2017 . Just over two years later, it’s still never been released, and there has been little news about the update’s progress.

Back in 2017, the team sounded optimistic. “Today we’re revealing a new look for Minecraft that we’re super duper excited for you to try out, one that’s inspired by the power of Xbox One X and available...

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

The developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey have been moving the game’s finish line farther out since October of last year, but I think I’m finally about to catch it. This sums up my gaming experience these days, perpetually racing toward a moving goal.

At launch Odyssey was already a marathon, a game with not...

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...
