The Week In Games: Chu, Chu, Chu In VR

The Week In Games: Chu, Chu, Chu In VR

In space, everybody can hear you sing and dance. Aliens are invading and it’s time for Ulala the fearless reporter to figure out what’s going on. And also to say chu a lot while dancing with aliens.

Space Channel 5 was always one of those games I’d see in magazines and be really confused about. It wasn’t until years later that I actually saw someone playing it and realized it was cool. Not...

5 Reasons Vanquish Hero Sam Gideon Is Still The Greatest

5 Reasons Vanquish Hero Sam Gideon Is Still The Greatest

Today Sega releases the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle bringing two of Platinum Games’ best to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with support for 4K at 60 frames per second. Both games look and play beautifully, but sequel-having Smash Bros. fighter Bayonetta has gotten enough attention. It’s smoking-and-sliding Vanquish star Sam Gideon’s time to shine.

Released in 2010, Vanquish is...

'Sam's Story' Sends Metro Exodus Off With A Bang And A Harmonica

'Sam's Story' Sends Metro Exodus Off With A Bang And A Harmonica

“Sam’s Story,” the second of two planned DLC episodes for Metro Exodus, lets you do this thing where, if you come across select chairs dotting its rotting landscape, you can sit down and play harmonica. You, as Sam, will just jam over some grimly scenic vista. You can play for as long as you want. There are even additional songs to collect. There is no point to this other than to do it. It is...

The Week In Games: Slide To The Left, Slide To The Right

The Week In Games: Slide To The Left, Slide To The Right

It’s time to power slide and shoot some robots. Vanquish is being released on PS4 and Xbox One this week, alongside Bayonetta. It is a good day for fans of action games.

I’ve been putting off playing Vanquish for too long. I need to just buy it and play it. I’ve gone too long in my life without sliding across the ground while shooting a dozen robots. Nobody should deny themselves that...

Coffee Talk Is A Sleepy Little Game In A Magical, 'Post-Racial' World

Coffee Talk Is A Sleepy Little Game In A Magical, 'Post-Racial' World

I’ve been holding off on playing Coffee Talk even after reading Heather’s positive impressions the other day. It wasn’t until Kotaku’s Senior Editor Natalie Degraffinried was in town when I finally had a good excuse to play it, which we did for the first time together on video. What I wasn’t fully prepared for was how much it’s like one of my favorite shows on Netflix: Midnight...

Xbox x Air Jordan Collab Is A Tasteful Nod To A Classic

Xbox x Air Jordan Collab Is A Tasteful Nod To A Classic

Because it’s All-Star Weekend in the NBA, and because that’s traditionally been a time for companies related to basketball to show off some cool stuff, Jordan and Xbox have decided to team up and make a console that nobody can actually buy.

This kind of thing isn’t new, particularly for Microsoft, who seem 1,000 times more keen for these PR stunts than in actually releasing limited edition...

Ubisoft Reveals A Surprise Division 2 Expansion 'Warlords of New York' That Is Designed To Revive The Game

Ubisoft Reveals A Surprise Division 2 Expansion 'Warlords of New York' That Is Designed To Revive The Game

The makers of The Division 2 have waited until nearly the last possible moment to give their frustrated player base a heap of potentially good news. After spending weeks failing to announce a release date for an expected small extension to the game, they’re revealing today that that mini-expansion—a free, two-mission excursion to Brooklyn’s Coney Island—is but a prelude to much more content,...

My Failed Quest For A Terminator Truck Is Modern Gaming In A Nutshell

My Failed Quest For A Terminator Truck Is Modern Gaming In A Nutshell
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

I was wrong about the Terminator truck that recently popped up as a reward in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The RT-5 Shepherd Mk. II was the ultimate reward for grinding through a batch of Terminator missions that were added to the big Ubisoft game a couple of weeks ago. Most of those missions, and the...

Dead Cells' Latest Expansion Makes A Good Thing So Much Better

Dead Cells' Latest Expansion Makes A Good Thing So Much Better

The only thing in Dead Cells’ latest expansion that gives me more pleasure than cleaving giant mutated fungi in half with a humongous scythe is having my own mushroomed companion fling itself at them with abandon and then explode upon impact.

In other words, I’m really enjoying Dead Cells’ new DLC, “Bad Seed.” Out today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, the $5 expansion brings even...

The Week In Games: Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This

Media Molecule’s ambitious game-building system, Dreams, is officially launching this week, which means we can all finally experience the immense pressure of being an indie game developer.

The Dreams beta has been out for nearly a year, so there should be plenty to play around with once the game finally hits this Friday. There have already been some newsworthy creations made with the game’s...

I Finally Got My First Xbox

I Finally Got My First Xbox

I’ve never wanted to own an Xbox console, if I’m being completely honest.

For the past 19 years Microsoft has put out exclusive after exclusive that don’t appeal to me in the slightest. The consistency is actually kind of impressive. Not that Xbox consoles or exclusives are poorly made—they’re just usually not for me. Even the few games that have caught my attention over the years, games like...

The 12 Best Games on Xbox Game Pass

The 12 Best Games on Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass is one of the best deals in gaming today. For $10 a month, you get access to a Netflix-style library of video games that you can download and play whenever you want. Some marquee games hit the service the same day they’re released, as with The Outer Worlds. In other words, it’s no surprise that the subscription base has doubled over the past year.

But as good a deal as Game...

Players Are Using BB-8 To Crush Jedi In Star Wars: Battlefront II

Players Are Using BB-8 To Crush Jedi In Star Wars: Battlefront II

The spherical droid BB-8 and its First Order variant BB-9E were added to Star Wars: Battlefront II on Monday and they have been utterly deadly in some multiplayer scenarios, whether facing down standard Storm Troopers or even Darth Vader.

Part of that is due to the droids’ speed. They roll around levels fast, which makes it hard to get off accurate blaster shots or make contact with a...

New Update Makes Power Rangers More Like A Real Fighting Game

New Update Makes Power Rangers More Like A Real Fighting Game

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is getting a new update today that adds online lobbies and a spectator mode to make it play more like a full-fledged fighting game.

The online lobbies will hold up to eight players and let them fight across four separate matches simultaneously. As people finish, they can then spectate the remaining matches rather than be stuck waiting until the next group of...

The Week In Games: The Skeksis Are Coming

The Week In Games: The Skeksis Are Coming

Remember not that long ago when the idea of more Dark Crystal seemed unlikely or even impossible? Now fans of this franchise have a Netflix series and soon a brand new video game, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, which is coming to all major platforms this week.

I was one of those kids who was too scared to watch the original Dark Crystal. I’m not the biggest fan of creepy puppets...

The Terminator Event In Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is Good

The Terminator Event In Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is Good

As many problems as Ghost Recon Breakpoint still has, it now also has Terminators. They’re actually a good addition to the game and part of a special live event week that kicked off on Wednesday and sort of ends on Thursday of next week.

The event is fun, especially if you like the idea of Terminators suddenly, seemingly randomly invading the unrelated game you’re playing.

Load Breakpoint up...

Journey To The Savage Planet Is Fun, But Please Stop Using That Word

Journey To The Savage Planet Is Fun, But Please Stop Using That Word

Journey to the Savage Planet is the first-ever game from Typhoon Studios, out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It ain’t perfect, but it’s got heart. It’s a succinct and loving throwback to the Metroid Prime series that fills a pretty specific niche in a sea full of service games that want to become your part-time job. But I have to be honest, I hate seeing the word “savage” in a game...

Pillars Of Eternity II Is Okay On Consoles If You Don’t Mind Long Load Times

Pillars Of Eternity II Is Okay On Consoles If You Don’t Mind Long Load Times

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is the latest classic-style role-playing game to make its way from PC to console. The console port of the 2018 game comes with a lot of compromises, but some negatives are offset by the turn-based combat mode that was added to the PC version last year.

Out yesterday on PS4 and Xbox One, Pillars II is an 80-plus-hour epic about hunting down a god and...
