You Really Should Be Playing Life Is Strange

My favourite thing about Life is Strange is that it encourages you to be present in the moment. At the beginning of the second episode, shy photography student Max awakens in her dorm room to the sound of Alt-J, and there’s no hurry to get up. You can lie there with her for as long as you want, while the song plays in the background.


Battlefield Hardline: The Kotaku Review

I really wish Hardline could deal with being a bad cop. The lack of rewards, unlocks or even acknowledgement for shooting people means it all takes place in a weird moral environment, where only good exists.


Tales Of Zestiria Takes A Cue From Classic Literature

Imagine if Don Quixote was a JRPG and the title character really was fighting giants while everyone else saw windmills. That game exists and it is Tales of Zestiria.


Why You Shouldn't Trust The Final Fantasy XV Demo Too Much

This week, the Final Fantasy XV demo was released across the world to those who picked up Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. However, it’s important to remember that it is just a demo and not necessarily the same experience as the full game. I mean, look how much Final Fantasy XIII changed between its demo and final release.


Q&A: The People Behind Helldivers Spill Some Secrets

I like Helldivers. It’s one of my favourite PS4 games. But I had 11 questions about it. I posed them to one of the game’s designers. He had answers. Thank goodness.


Let's Compare The Tales Of Zestiria Anime To The Game

In late December 2014, a special anime covering the first hour or so of the then upcoming PlayStation 3 RPG Tales of Zesteria aired on Japanese TV. And while the game and anime counterpart both tell the same basic story, it’s interesting to see what is the same and what is different.


Tales Of Zestiria Takes A Big Gamble With Its Heroine

Games in the Tales series tend to follow a predictable pattern. There is always a hero, a heroine, a party of unique supporting characters, and a world-spanning adventure. But Tales of Zestiria breaks this pattern in a big way.


Lego Jurassic World: The Basics

What is it? Lego Jurassic World, another of those Lego games we’re always getting, this time covering the four Jurassic Park movies (including this summer’s Jurassic World).


Talking Toasters, Pop Rocks And Other Fun Stuff Cut From Fallout 2

The sequel to Interplay’s legendary post-apocalyptic role-playing game was bigger and badder than the original Fallout, which translates into more space on the cutting room floor for discarded storylines, abandoned features, unrealized non-player characters and a fully-upgradeable, completely drive-able vehicle.


The Shape That's Everywhere In Mass Effect

There’s no getting around it: a lot of modern, graphically intense games look kinda same-y. At a glance, it can be hard to tell the difference. But show me a shot of the Mass Effect series and I’ll instantly be like, “Yeah, that’s Mass Effect.” Why? A single shape that’s everywhere.
