Someone Spent 24 Hours In VR The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Someone Spent 24 Hours In VR The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

YouTuber SwankyBox is a huge fan of The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, the classic N64 RPG. As a kid he would play it for hours and hours and hours, exploring every inch of the world and also just chilling out and watching the sunset. So he recently decided to experience Ocarina Of Time in a brand new way, using VR. And he was going to do it for 24 hours straight, even sleeping and eating...

Minecraft Is The Top YouTube Game Of 2019, Thanks To A Boost From PewDiePie

Minecraft Is The Top YouTube Game Of 2019, Thanks To A Boost From PewDiePie

It’s not like Minecraft ever really went anywhere. But it definitely spent the past handful of years less firmly entrenched in the zeitgeist than in the first half of the decade. Not so in 2019. The blocky game about digging holes and punching the ever-loving shit out of trees is back on top of YouTube, leaving even Fortnite in its dust.

As part of its annual Rewind feature, YouTube put out a...

YouTube Is Relaxing Its Rules Against Video Game Violence

YouTube Is Relaxing Its Rules Against Video Game Violence

In a “Policy enforcement update” posted earlier today, YouTube announced a series of changes coming to the site’s content moderation, most of them centred around new distinctions between actual real-world violence and the “scripted or simulated violence” you see in video games.

Starting today, “scripted or simulated violent content found in video games will be treated the same as other types...

The Dreamcast's VMU Was The Coolest Memory Card

The Dreamcast's VMU Was The Coolest Memory Card

Memory cards are something we don’t really need anymore. The Switch does use SD cards, but these are universal storage items that can be used on PCs, phones and other hardware. No, the days of dedicated memory card units are long gone. But back when we did use memory cards, the coolest of them all was probably the VMU devices for the Dreamcast.

Part memory card, part second screen accessory,...

YouTube Channel Of A Man Feeding Stray Cats Keeps Me Calm

YouTube Channel Of A Man Feeding Stray Cats Keeps Me Calm

Life is hard. Take a load off by watching a Japanese man feed stray cats.

I discovered Niiyan1216, a series of videos where a Japanese man feeds stray cats, over a year ago. I was perusing the subreddit Deep Into YouTube, which is dedicated to finding rare, interesting videos. I’m a huge cat person, so of course I clicked on the thumbnail with a cat in it. It’s not exactly mind-blowing—the...

YouTube Changes Renew Calls For YouTubers To Unionize [Update]

YouTube Changes Renew Calls For YouTubers To Unionize [Update]

To say that YouTubers have an uneasy relationship with the company that hosts their videos would be a massive understatement. It’s not uncommon for YouTube to demonetize videos with little in the way of explanation and, as a recent terms of service update reminded users, it can also just straight up remove videos and channels whenever it wants, should it deem such a thing necessary. This has...

When YouTuber “Double A” watched Desmond “Etika” Amofah’s final YouTube video, one sentence stuck out to him: “I know this world’s gonna forget me.”

“That’s just not true,” said Double A, who lives in New York City. “We all miss him. We all love him.” Amofah, a popular 29-year-old YouTuber who created videos about Nintendo games, died by suicide in June of this year. In his final video, he...

All The Little Details Hidden In Untitled Goose Game

All The Little Details Hidden In Untitled Goose Game

Untitled Goose Game has quickly become one of the most popular games of 2019. It turns out people love honking and annoying villagers. Makes sense. But the camera in the game is limited and this makes it hard to see what’s inside some buildings or other out of bound secrets.

Lucky for us, the YouTube channel Boundary Break with a magic camera and can show us everything hidden in Untitled Goose...

Someone Beat Minecraft Without Mining Any Blocks

Someone Beat Minecraft Without Mining Any Blocks

Minecraft is a game where you sometimes mine stuff and sometimes craft stuff. But one player decided to skip the whole mining bit of Minecraft and decided to beat the game without ever mining a single block. This isn’t easy and involves a lot of scavenging, some expert bucket skills, some luck and a lot of patience.

First spotted by PC Gamer, Reddit user SpikyHedGey posted a video on the...

High School Redesigns Shouldn't Remind You Of Taking Cover In Gears Of War

High School Redesigns Shouldn't Remind You Of Taking Cover In Gears Of War

Play enough video games, and eventually you can tell when you’re entering an area where a digital shootout is about to happen. It’s kind of a joke at this point: see an abundance of chest-high walls for you to conveniently crouch behind? Walls that make zero architectural sense? An elevated vantage point or two? Odds are, there’s a firefight in the cards for you.

Ever since Gears of War, video...

Sometimes when I’m playing a game and it ain’t great or I’m bored, I’ll wish I was playing something else. That usually means exiting the game and loading up a new video game. But there are some devs that have kindly tossed in a whole different game inside another game, letting...

The YouTuber Playing Through Every Version Of Minecraft Is Finally Back At It

Five years ago, one YouTuber began a Minecraft Let’s Play unlike any other, one that spanned all the different versions of the game and examined how it changed over time. After a nearly three-year hiatus, it’s coming back, with a nifty trailer.

YouTuber Zisteau said in his very first episode of his Minecraft Let’s Play that it was a little weird how much Minecraft he plays on his channel,...

Control’s Hidden Puppet Show Is A Horror Masterpiece

Control’s Hidden Puppet Show Is A Horror Masterpiece

Control could be called a horror game. It’s creepy and unsettling,right down to the title cards that pop up in every new location. But Control is also a good action game, withfun, bombastic gunfights . It’s probably best to just call it a thriller—at least, until you find the first episode of Threshold Kids, an inexplicable puppet show you can find clips of in the game. Those puppets?...

I May Never Stop Watching YouTube Tutorials And Actually Play This Strategy Game
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

For the last couple months, I’ve been trying to get into Stellaris in a big way—partly because the game is one of the few 4X games to get an uncompromised console port, and partly because I think space stuff is rad. Since I’m not a PC guy, I’m still pretty new to games in the 4X mold. The “Xs” are an...
