Two Hours With The Amazingly Detailed Red Dead Redemption 2 Two Hours With The Amazingly Detailed Red Dead Redemption 2

I played Red Dead Redemption 2 for the first time this week, and I swiftly caused glorious chaos.

Microsoft's Custom Charity Consoles Are Great Microsoft's Custom Charity Consoles Are Great

Xbox and Make-A-Wish are teaming up again for their Consoles For Kids charity drive, and the 2018 batch of custom-designed celebrity consoles are looking very pretty.

Fortnite's Cube Destroys The Game's Unluckiest Building [Update: It's Sunk Into Loot Lake Now]

Last month, the giant rift in Fortnite’s sky closed and spat out a giant alien cube that’s stomping around the map. Players are eagerly tracking each new move, wondering what will happen when it finally stops. The cube’s latest route took it through Tilted Towers, where it destroyed what might just be Fortnite’s…

Thoughts From A Destiny 2 Latecomer  Thoughts From A Destiny 2 Latecomer 

On my PlayStation 4, it’s still the late summer of 2017, because I’m in the early stages of Destiny 2. So far it’s both better and worse than I expected.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Kotaku Review Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Kotaku Review

The new Tomb Raider’s freshest idea is the floating of a question: What if all this tomb raiding that Lara Croft does indicates that she is a treasure-plundering jerk who wrecks other people’s cultures and, worse, their lives?

Call of Duty's Frantic Battle Royale Takes Some Adjustment Call of Duty's Frantic Battle Royale Takes Some Adjustment

Playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s new battle royale mode Blackout is both familiar and strange for anyone into the genre. The game is split between frantic gunplay and methodical movement. I’ve had a lot of fun with it, but its fast pace doesn’t match the battle royale experience I’m used to.

Valkyria Chronicles 4: The Kotaku Review Valkyria Chronicles 4: The Kotaku Review

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a game of extremes. Its romantic attitude towards soldiers clashes with a desire to tell a tale of mass violence and corpse-laden battlefields. It is as intimate as it is loud, and each moment captivates even if the parts are often greater than the whole.

Mega Man 11's Doors Are Screwed Up And I Don't Know What's Real Anymore

The Mega Man 11 demo released on the Nintendo Switch yesterday and while it mostly feels like old-school Mega Man, a tiny change to how doors work somehow makes it feel like not-Mega Man. If you’ve ever played a Mega Man game, you’ve probably jumped into a boss door at one point either on purpose or by accident. Even…

Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition, the shrunk-down version of Square Enix’s RPG with adorable characters and streamlined game play, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the publisher said today.

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

Battlefield V's Beta Feels Too Slow Battlefield V's Beta Feels Too Slow

I dove into the Battlefield V beta last night. While I enjoyed the tense gunfights, I’m not so sure about some of the game’s changes. From shifts in how ammo is handled to changes to weapon customization, my fun was tempered by some skepticism about what my favorite multiplayer shooter might be like at launch.

Microsoft is rolling out Alexa support for Xbox One starting with the Insider program. This new set of features, called Xbox Skill, works with the Echo and other Alexa and Cortana-enabled devices, and includes being able to power the system on. It doesn’t yet include a voice command for getting more exclusives.

Fortnite Players Want To Know Where The Cube Is Headed Fortnite Players Want To Know Where The Cube Is Headed

Last week, the giant rift in Fortnite’s sky started spewing lightning until it finally dropped a glowing alien cube on the map. The cube has started moving and changing the landscape, encouraging players to sleuth out where it’s ultimately headed and what will happen when it gets there.

There Will Be A Football Mini-Game In NBA 2K19. Hmmm. There Will Be A Football Mini-Game In NBA 2K19. Hmmm.

It’s been over a decade since the gaming label 2K stopped making football games to rival EA’s Madden series, but wouldn’t you know it: someone is throwing a football at the end of the trailer for 2K’s latest big basketball game. It’s there to be noticed.

Oh, This Is Nice Oh, This Is Nice

The Xbox Elite Controller, which is fantastic, has only ever been available in black. Now, it’s also available in a very fetching shade of white.

Ubisoft Is Walking A Tightrope With The Division 2's Paid Extras Ubisoft Is Walking A Tightrope With The Division 2's Paid Extras

A couple of recent Division 2 community flare-ups have illustrated the challenges of modern video game publishing (and purchasing), as Ubisoft slices and dices its upcoming game into numerous special editions and expansions while still trying to make players feel like they’re getting a great deal.

Here's September 2018's Xbox Live Games With Gold Lineup Here's September 2018's Xbox Live Games With Gold Lineup

My editor-in-chief cheered “LEGO Stars Wars III!” at this month’s Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup, and his excitement made me excited, so maybe this is a good month for Xbox games. You also get some classic Sega action RPGs and the grim management sim Prison Architect. As always, these games are only “free” if you…

Monster Hunter: World Team Bests The Game's Toughest Fight In Under Five Minutes Monster Hunter: World Team Bests The Game's Toughest Fight In Under Five Minutes

Monster Hunter: World’s dangerous Behemoth requires a lot of focus to take down. The battle, inspired by Final Fantasy XIV’s boss raids, is a huge change of pace from most fights and a hard roadblock for plenty of hunters. The extreme version of the fight makes things even harder, but a group of amazingly coordinated…

Even Star Wars: Battlefront II's Developers Were Confused About A Droid In One Of Their Screenshots Even Star Wars: Battlefront II's Developers Were Confused About A Droid In One Of Their Screenshots

It’s been a wild week for eagle-eyed fans of Star Wars Battlefront II. On Wednesday they thought they spotted an unannounced droid in the background of some new official artwork for the game. A rep for the game threw cold water on that theory but then clarified today that, actually, these both were and weren’t the…

Fortnite Now Lets You Thank The Bus Driver Fortnite Now Lets You Thank The Bus Driver

Change.org signatures normally aren’t worth the paper they’re not printed on, but here’s an example of one actually working: only weeks after a campaign to allow players to thank the game’s bus driver, Fortnite now includes the ability to do just that.
