I Described 47 Video Game Box Covers From Memory

I Described 47 Video Game Box Covers From Memory

My friend Alex Jaffe sent me a list of 47 video game titles. Without looking at the list, I stepped in front of a camera. Our producer CJ read the list one name at a time. I tried to describe what each game’s box looked like. This was a terrible idea. I loved it.

Of course, my friend Alex Jaffe didn’t want to just send me a list of classic fan-favorite video games. He had to send me a list that...

Let’s Mosey on in to the exciting first part of what will hopefully be a long, slow, pains-taking series in which Tim Teaches Jason Japanese. It’s Chrono Trigger! Heck yeah! Learn Japanese with us, in the chat.

I (Tim Rogers) got one of those new 8bitdo SN30 Pro+ controllers. I’m really excited about it, so I’m live-streaming my first impressions of it by testing it with a battery of Switch games (starting with Super Mario Maker 2). Finally! A stream that shows you what it’s like for me to play video games by myself. Yell at me in the chat!

A Lot Of Terrible Video Game Characters Wear Sunglasses

A Lot Of Terrible Video Game Characters Wear Sunglasses

For today’s video, I tried to think of as many sunglasses-wearing video game characters as I could. Immediately Cool Spot, Rash from Battletoads, and Duke Nukem sprang to mind. It did not exactly go well from there: it turns out a lot of video game characters who wear sunglasses suck.

If you were born before the year 2000, there’s a chance you remember the 1990s. Back then, advertisers had an...

Metal Wolf Chaos XD: The Kotaku Review

Metal Wolf Chaos XD: The Kotaku Review

I hesitate to call any review of Metal Wolf Chaos XD complete if it does not include a long-winded anecdote about how I personally got rich in 2007 by selling off a stack of mint-condition copies of the Japanese Xbox original which I’d bought for less than $3 each. Therefore, barring any other review’s paraphrasing or plagiarizing this bombastic video of mine, I present to you arguably the...

I Don't Need To Play Death Stranding Because I Already Love It

I Don't Need To Play Death Stranding Because I Already Love It

I don’t even have to play Death Stranding in order to review it. All I need is the 39 minutes’ worth of trailers released thus far, my hideous enthusiasm, and my terrible imagination. Allow me to utilize all three in this video presentation, a “pre-review” of Death Stranding.

What could possibly qualify me to review Death Stranding three months before its release, at a time when no person who...

I Fixed Madden NFL 20's Opening Cinematic

I Fixed Madden NFL 20's Opening Cinematic

I found that Madden NFL 20's intro lacked both The Monday Night Football Theme Song and vocabularic loquaciousness. So I made this. Well, bye.

(Oh. You can also watch it on YouTube, and subscribe to our channel, if you want. Anyway, bye. Have a fun weekend everybody. Don’t get hurt playing too much football.)

Are you ready for some football?! I’m not! Which means that, were I confronted by some football, my reactions of surprise and delight would be genuine. This is precisely why I’m about to stream Madden NFL 20 over on our Twitch channel. Roar from the bleachers in our chat, bruddy. (That’s a portmanteau of “bro” and “buddy.”)

A Mario Master Coached Me On The Hardest Mario Technique

A Mario Master Coached Me On The Hardest Mario Technique

I’ve been playing Super Mario games since the first Super Mario Bros. came out on the NES. I think I’m pretty good at them. However, whenever I see masters like GrandPOOBear playing demonically difficult Super Mario Maker courses, I question the richness of my childhood. In the interest of officially kicking off my midlife crisis, I beseeched GrandPOOBear to coach me in the ways of Mario. He...

Watch Goichi Suda Tell Me Absolutely Nothing About No More Heroes 3

Watch Goichi Suda Tell Me Absolutely Nothing About No More Heroes 3
E3 2019It's time for the biggest gaming show of the year. We've got articles, videos, podcasts and maybe even a GIF or two.  

Less than an hour after releasing a two-and-a-half-minute teaser for No More Heroes 3 last month, Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda graciously agreed to sit down with me for one hour and answer no questions whatsoever. We filmed the whole thing. I condensed the...

We (Jason Schreier and Tim Rogers) are playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 over on Kotaku’s Twitch channel! I gotta say: I thought PLAYING a Dragon Quest was my favorite activity. Then I tried BUILDING one. And buddy are MY arms tired!

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Is Much More Than A Minecraft Clone

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Is Much More Than A Minecraft Clone

Dragon Quest Builders 2 makes me feel like a creative genius. It accomplishes this bold feat through use of brilliant game design. In summary, no, it is not a “Minecraft Clone.” I use plenty of fancy words to elaborate on that in this video.

Somehow I arrived at adulthood without ever learning to enjoy creativity. Every time my life requires me to be creative, I make a face like Judge Dredd and...

Let's See How Much Fun We Can Squeeze Out Of The Last Half Hour Of E3
E3 2019It's time for the biggest gaming show of the year. We've got articles, videos, podcasts and maybe even a GIF or two.  

Yes, E3 2019 ended three weeks ago. However, in my nightmares, I’m still there, slamming energy drinks and binge-sitting in every gamer chair my eyes can see. As long as my neck still hurts from the flight back, I cannot refrain from scraping the bottom of the...

I'm Still Thinking About The Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 2019 Demo

I'm Still Thinking About The Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 2019 Demo

Despite the high possibility of my dying of brain-overload-related shock during my first experience with Final Fantasy VII Remake, I lived. Two weeks later, I’m still thinking about it. Here’s my fresh-off-the-moment video report from the E3 show floor.

You’ll hear me gush about the battle system. This gushing is coming from a guy who had just finished playing the game mere moments...

I Asked The Localization Director of Yakuza and Judgment To Tell Me A Bedtime Story

On the last night of E3 2019, as I teetered on the precipice of rest, I talked to Scott Strichart, localization director of the Yakuza series and Judgment—which is out today, by the way. He —came to my hotel room in Los Angeles for the most last-second interview possible.

We discussed his career (he worked on Persona 4!) and the challenges of localizing a such a massive game as it was being...

The Creator Of Yakuza And Judgment Brutally Owned My Haircut

The Creator Of Yakuza And Judgment Brutally Owned My Haircut

At E3, I had an opportunity to sit down with Toshihiro Nagoshi, chief creative officer of Sega and the director of both the Yakuza games and the upcoming not-exactly-a-spinoff game Judgment for a half an hour. Basking in the chance to ask my personal favorite industry luminary anything I wanted, I of course inquired about jackets and haircuts.

Toshihiro Nagoshi has done just about...

I played all the way through Judgment in Japanese earlier this year. Now it’s time to play its Weste

I played all the way through Judgment in Japanese earlier this year. Now it’s time to play its Western release on our Twitch channel, and judge the quality of the English dub. Something tells me it’s going to be good. Uh-oh: did I just pre-judge it? Shout your loudest objections in the chat!

Cortana Is Pretty Much Master Chief's Mom

Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 is out, we’ve got thoughts about Destiny 2's Forsaken expansion, Nintendo delayed their Nintendo Direct because of an earthquake in Japan, Henry Cavill is playing Geralt in Netflix’s The Witcher series, and we’ve confirmed that Master Chief’s suit in Halo does not have an auto-masturbation feature. Gita and I dissect all these topics today on Kotaku XP, our weekly...
