In Night Call, You're A Taxi Driver Who Has To Find A Killer

In Night Call, You're A Taxi Driver Who Has To Find A Killer

There’s a serial killer on the loose in Paris. The taxi that you drive is running low on gas, the police detective in your back seat is strong-arming you into gathering information, and if you don’t make rent, you’re gonna end up on the streets. This is Night Call, a slice-of-life mystery game that mixes noir investigating with a tireless nightly grind to earn enough to make ends meet.

Sea Of Thieves Gets Monthly Updates And The First One Is Pretty...Explosive

Sea Of Thieves Gets Monthly Updates And The First One Is Pretty...Explosive

Sea of Thieves, Rare’s chill pirate hangout game, has been on the upswing lately. After an expansive (and excellent ) Anniversary Update that brought story quests and cooking to its cartoony high seas in May, Sea of Thieves is upping the ante yet again with monthly updates. Log into the game now on Xbox One or PC and you’ll be greeted by the very first one, the Black Powder Stashes.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's New Atlantis Expansion Is Jaw-Dropping

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's New Atlantis Expansion Is Jaw-Dropping

I’ve spent 20 minutes playing the new Judgment Of Atlantis add-on to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and already just as much time snapping pictures in photo mode. As a colleague said, Ubisoft’s art directors are just showing off now.

Everywhere I turn, I’m seeing something cool.

There’s this spot...

There’s this one...

And there’s this!

Everything you’re seeing is part of the game’s rendition of...

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....

Xbox One Getting Mouse + Keyboard Support

Xbox One Getting Mouse + Keyboard Support

FPS games (and...strategy games?) are about to get a lot more precise on the Xbox One, with the announcement today that Microsoft is “enabling mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One for select Xbox Insiders in the coming weeks.”

It’s a game-by-game thing, with developers free to choose whether they implement the added compatibility or not, and it won’t ever be enabled by default in a...

On April 1 of this year, Funcom released a trailer for Conan Chop Chop, a crudely-animated roguelike that I said was “definitely not real but probably should be.” Now it’s coming to PC and...

Not Everything About The Open-World Lego Movie 2 Game Is Awesome

Not Everything About The Open-World <i>Lego Movie 2</i> Game Is Awesome

Anyone who’s played a movie-based Lego video game is familiar with the formula. A film’s tale is retold in a series of story missions, packed with bricks to break and characters to collect. At first, I was disappointed that The Lego Movie 2 Video Game did not follow that formula. But eventually, I came around on it.

Released on February 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, The Lego...

Ubisoft Renames Controversial Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Trophy

Ubisoft Renames Controversial <i>Assassin’s Creed Odyssey</i> Trophy

As promised, Ubisoft has begun making changes to a recent expansion to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that upset many players and led to an apology from the developers. The first of those changes appears to be in the process of rolling out, as PS4 players can now see a new name for the trophy that they earn when the chapter concludes.

It’s impossible to talk about the trophy change without spoiling...

Fornite's New Getaway Mode Is A Fast-Paced Comedy Of Errors

<i>Fornite</i>'s New Getaway Mode Is A Fast-Paced Comedy Of Errors

Fortnite’s newest limited-time mode, Getaway, feels a bit like a mini-crash course in everything you need to know if you want to win in the main battle royale. The capture the flag-esque mode is full of dangerous drops and surprising turns of fortune. Matches are short but packed with new surprises. If you wanted something faster-paced than the main game, this is the mode for you.

In Getaway,...

SolSeraph, coming July 10 to PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, is a combination of side-scrolling platformer and overhead strategy in which the player is a divine being tasked with rebuilding civilization while protecting humanity from demons and monsters. In other words, it’s a dead ringer for the Super...

Here's Razer's Xbox One Keyboard And Mouse Combo

Here's Razer's Xbox One Keyboard And Mouse Combo

When Microsoft announced keyboard and mouse support were coming to the Xbox One, it also announced that green and black gaming hardware maker Razer was working on something special for the console. This is that—the $250 Razer Turret wireless mouse and keyboard combo for Xbox One.

Rather than design something completely new, Razer revamped its existing Turret couch keyboard/mouse combo for use...

How Privacy Settings Compare Across Xbox Live, PSN, And Other Platforms

How Privacy Settings Compare Across Xbox Live, PSN, And Other Platforms

Earlier this week, Steam introduced a handful of new privacy options and, in a move that doomed number-crunching megalith Steam Spy , changed its default settings so that only friends can see which games you’ve been playing. In this one particular area, Steam is now ahead of the rest of the pack.

If you want, you can manually make your game details public. This includes how many hours you’ve...

The Week In Games: Darkside Of The Switch

The Week In Games: Darkside Of The Switch

After a busy last week, this week is much quieter. No huge games, but for Switch owners looking for some demon killing, Darksiders Warmastered Edition hits the portable system this week.

I just started playing the first Darksiders game. I needed something to play as I take some time away from The Division 2. I don’t have any excuse for why I never played either 1 or 2 when they first came out....

The Week In Games: Inglorious <i>Void Bastards</i>

Sometimes a game just looks so damn cool you want to play it and Void Bastards is one of those games. It just looks incredible. Like an old comic book and a first-person shooter got together, had a baby and raised it in space. Also, that name is great.

You might notice we are getting TWO cricket related video games this week. When was the last time that happened? I’ll leave that to you super...

'I'd Have These Extremely Graphic Dreams': What It's Like To Work On Ultra-Violent Games Like Mortal Kombat 11

<i>'</i>I'd Have These Extremely Graphic Dreams': What It's Like To Work On Ultra-Violent Games Like <i>Mortal Kombat 11</i>

Mortal Kombat 11 is a brutal game. That’s what you come for—sensational, over-the-top violence that’s inventive and gratuitous on a level that doesn’t exist anywhere else. It can be shocking in its detail and funny in its execution, but it’s always arresting. It’s also short. Fatalities, gory, physically improbable finishers that usually involve cartoonish dismemberment, only comprise a few...

In Japan, Rockstar Is All In For <i>Red Dead Redemption 2</i>

The first Red Dead Redemption did well in Japan. So now, Rockstar is plastering posters all over the country.

When Red Dead Redemption 1 came out in Japan in October 2010, the PlayStation 3 version debuted at the fourth spot on the Japanese charts, selling 71,000 copies. Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded also debuted that week, coming in at number three with 96,000 copies sold. However, Red Dead...

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

There may have been a time, a week or two ago, when I was excited to score my first Precursor Reflex Bow in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Thirty-seven Precursor Reflex Bows later? Not so much.

While playing Odyssey’s Fate of Atlantis expansion, which takes the ancient Greek setting of this action-role-playing-game...

Let’s say you own an Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and you’re looking at getting Fallout 4. How does the game shape up on each platform?
