Where Were You When World Of Warcraft Started Running?

If your answer is something along the lines of “sitting in front of my computer cursing”, you certainly weren’t thinking Blizzard’s MMORPG would make it ten years, yet here we are to the day.


Excellent PC Strategy Game Also Wants To Be An RPG

And here I was, only just saying how good Crusader Kings II – nominally a strategy game – was at depicting inter-personal relationships. Guess I’m not the only one who digs that aspect of the game, because developers Paradox are now going to double down on it, announcing an expansion that’s all about role-playing.



This War Of Mine: The Kotaku Review

This War of Mine starts off feeling like the most depressing variation of The Sims ever, one where any happiness or woohoo has been bombed out of existence. And, very quickly, it gets to feeling even worse.


Steam Sales Could Start This Wednesday

It’s not Christmas yet. It’s not even December. But according to a VG247 report, PayPal let it slip that the Steam sales are going to start this week, so get ready.

One of my biggest gaming regrets is that I’ve never taken the time to really dig deep into EVE Online. This latest trailer, featuring the voices of actual players, is a monument to what everyone else is missing.

Creepy Little Girl Terrorises DayZ

I’ve seen some creepy video game shenanigans in my time — for instance, Grand Theft Auto V‘s silent, ruthlessly determined serial killer. This, however, might just take the cake.


This Minecraft Build Wasn't Inspired By A Real Hotel

Dayshot: This Minecraft build wasn’t inspired by a real hotel, which is a shame ’cause I’d love to go there. It actually reminds me a bit of the Panau Falls Casino from Just Cause 2. In any case, the build is called the Twin Palms Hotel and it was submitted to Planet Minecraft by Jaden024. Look below for more screenshots.


Riot Wants To Pay You For Finding League Of Legends Exploits

Isn’t that backwards? Do you really want people actively looking for exploits in your game that could be used for anything from slight gameplay advantages to stealing identities? Well, if said exploits are, uh, exploited, it’s a terrible idea for sure. On the other hand, if you give Riot a heads-up instead of being an evildoer, it’ll give you some real coin for your work.
