Star Wars: Armada: The Kotaku Review

If there’s one thing you do more than anything else while playing Star Wars: Armada, it’s shout INTENSIFY FORWARD FIREPOWER.


Star Fox Zero: The Kotaku Review

Even if you can get used to the awkward controls, Star Fox Zero is merely mediocre. It’s as disappointing a major Nintendo console release as there’s been in some time.


Razer's New Ripsaw Capture Box Is Pretty Much AverMedia's Live Gamer Extreme

When my review unit of Razer’s newly-launched Ripsaw game capture box arrived I eagerly unboxed it, set it atop the capture box I’d been using since last summer, and swapped the cords from the old one into the exact same ports in the new one. Hmm.


AVADirect Avant P870DM-G Laptop Review: What A Difference A Desktop GPU Makes

Gaming on a laptop normally requires a sacrifice of graphics power for form factor. AVADirect’s Avant P870DM-G gaming laptop houses a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980 desktop GPU, and it makes a hell of a difference.


Dark Souls 3: The Kotaku Review

Including Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3 marks the third Souls game in as many years. Dark Souls 2 was disappointing, so is Dark Souls 3 is a return to form? Mostly.


The Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset Is Almost Too Metal

Having reviewed the first two headsets in Kingston’s HyperX Cloud line, the feature that resonates with me most about the new Cloud Revolver is the steel suspension frame. Maybe reverberates is a better word.


Hyper Light Drifter: The Kotaku Review

My favourite thing about Hyper Light Drifter is all the new swear words I invented while playing it.


1979 Revolution: Black Friday: The Kotaku Review

1979 Revolution: Black Friday is a game conceived by people who might not ever be able to go back to their native Iran, because they’re daring to create a document from its history. Yet the primary takeaway from playing the game is a feeling of complicated affection, not bitterness. There’s another side to what we in the West know about Iran, and playing this game is a good way to start learning about it.


ADR1FT: The Kotaku Review

In space, no one can hear you breathe rather heavily.


Quantum Break: The Kotaku Review

A new console generation starts, and you wait for something special. The launch games are ok, but they are really just shinier versions of last-gen releases. Eventually, though, you play a game that hadn’t been done before, couldn’t have been done before. For this generation, for me, that game is Quantum Break, which is imperfect in content but fascinating in form.
