People Are Already Playing Final Fantasy VII Remake In Australia

When Square Enix announced physical copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake would ship to Europe and Australia earlier than its April 10 release date due to the covid-19 pandemic, we didn’t think they meant this early. The eagerly anticipated game is already in the hands of many Australians, as evidenced by a growing number of Twitch streams and YouTube videos.

The Punch-Out Speedrunning Community Spent Five Years Trying To Beat One Player And All His Records

The Punch-Out Speedrunning Community Spent Five Years Trying To Beat One Player And All His Records

Back in the early 90s and early 2000s, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for the NES was a popular early speedrunning game. But eventually, players moved on. However, one player went back to some old Punch-Out fansites in 2010 and discovered that every world record at the time had been set by one player, Matt Turk. Nobody had even tied any of his times.

This story, of a community coming together to...

There Sure Are A Lot Of Trains In The Half-Life Series

There Sure Are A Lot Of Trains In The Half-Life Series

I’ve played all the Half-Life games a lot. I already knew that there were a few trains in the series. But I had no idea just how many trains are jammed in games like Half-Life 2. And I also had no idea that many of them are based on real trains.

Luckily, Youtuber Amtrakguy365 created a lovely video going over every train that has appeared in a Half-Life game. Of course, he covers the obvious...

The Original Doom Is Filled With Toy Guns

The Original Doom Is Filled With Toy Guns

Have you ever been playing the original Doom and stopped to look at one of the weird faces that dot the many walls in the game? Or maybe looked at your gun closely and thought about how it was made?

Well, it turns out that id Software used an old book by author Stephen King and photographer f-stop Fitzgerald and a bunch of toy guns to create a lot of the art found in Doom.

Down The Strange, Sometimes Upsetting Rabbit Hole Of Twitch Streamers' TikToks

Down The Strange, Sometimes Upsetting Rabbit Hole Of Twitch Streamers' TikToks

Over the past 72 hours, I’ve spent an ungodly amount of time watching TikToks created by Twitch streamers. It all began with a simple question: Can people whose whole line of work is built around creating the lengthiest, least-filtered form of pop culture possible excel in a medium where minimalism thrives?

TikTok is a video platform that allows users to share clips no longer than 60 seconds....

While hoarders

have been causing toilet paper sell-outs in Japan, there has been a rumor that popular Japanese YouTuber Hikakin is to blame. The above image is proof of his mass purchase. However, this isn’t a recent screencap. Hikakin bought twenty-years’ worth of toilet paper nearly four years ago.

Below is the original clip, which was uploaded in August 2016:

All The Previous Times Capcom Remade Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 is getting a big, fancy remake in a few weeks. But this isn’t the first time RE3 has been remade. Over the years, Capcom and others have recreated small and large portions of the classic game in various ways.

Last year, before the release of Resident Evil 2 , Youtuber The Sphere Hunter released a great video showcasing all the different times Capcom had remade bits and sections...

YouTuber Etika's Memorial Is Now A PokéStop

Last year, following the passing of YouTube star Desmond “Etika” Amofah, fans got together and painted a 40-foot mural in Brooklyn in his honour. And now, after lobbying Niantic, the mural is a bonafide PokéStop in Pokémon Go.

Someone Almost Beat LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Without Collecting Any Studs

Someone Almost Beat LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Without Collecting Any Studs

Whenever I played the LEGO Star Wars games, I would spend way too much time farming studs. I did this because collecting studs lets you unlock new characters, features and also because it is satisfying. But one player decided to try and play through all the LEGO Star Wars games avoiding every single stud.

YouTuber, Sovern Gaming, really likes the LEGO Star Wars games. So they decided last...

Dragon Ball Z Abridged Comes To An Abrupt End

I’ll never forget the period of time during which a bunch of my friends got super into Dragon Ball Z Abridged, a YouTube series that cuts up episodes of Dragon Ball Z and stitches them back together with loads and loads of jokes. It was a different era of YouTube, the internet, and my life; back when the series first debuted in 2008, I was a teenager. DBZA has been an internet fixture for...

Why Twitch Fans Donate Money To Wealthy Streamers

Early last year,

then-Twitch streamer Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang received an email from a fan who’d donated $200 to him in 2018. “Hey, I donated money to you a year ago,” read the email according to Wang, who spoke to Kotaku over the phone. “I’m having hard times right now. Do you think you could return that donation?” Wang did so without batting an eyelash, only for the fan to reply that...

How Twitch Encourages Fans To Obsess Over Streamers' Viewership Numbers

How Twitch Encourages Fans To Obsess Over Streamers' Viewership Numbers

Sit in any sizable streamer’s Twitch chat for long enough, and the topic of numbers is bound to come up. Why isn’t viewership what it used to be? Why has the streamer plateaued? Why aren’t they as big as [insert bigger streamer here]? After a while, it starts to wear on some streamers.

Cory “King Gothalion” Michael is a Destiny streamer who

signed an exclusivity deal with Mixer in October . He...

Randomness In Video Games Is Not All The Same

Randomness In Video Games Is Not All The Same

Random chance mechanics in video games can be frustrating. Missing a 90% shot in XCOM, when you really need it to hit, can cause some players to throw their controller or rage quit. But not all randomness found in video games is the same and how developers use randomness can make you scream or cheer.

In a recent video from Game Maker’s Toolkit, the topic of randomness is examined and broken...

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...
