Half-Life 2: The Kotaku Review

Half-Life 2 has my favourite moment in any game. It’s this:

Ozone Strike Pro Keyboard: Good Keyboard, Bad Software

I love a good mechanical keyboard. There’s something so satisfying about hearing the light tapping noises when I punch down on the keys. While mechanical keyboards are highly prized by gamers and coders, they can also be appealing to those that work on PCs on a regular basis. I often work from home so having a keyboard that is suitable for gaming and work would be the Holy Grail for me. Does the Ozone Strike Pro fit the bill? Let’s find out.

BoxBoxBoy: The Kotaku Review

How to improve a game like BoxBoy? How to create a sequel to a game that was simply perfect, flawless in both idea and execution? Easy: You add another box.

The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel: The Kotaku Review

Playing Trails of Cold Steel is like eating a hero sandwich that’s way too heavy on the bread. Often you’ll get nice big chunks of turkey and salami. But sometimes — more often than you’d like — you’ll realise that all you can taste is fluffy white filler.

Zero Time Dilemma: The Kotaku Review

There are no video games like Zero Escape. No other series plays with the interactive form to tell stories in such an elaborate, satisfying way. No other game can fuck with your head quite this much. Nothing else even comes close.

Kirby: Planet Robobot: The Kotaku Review

Kirby is approaching Mario and Sonic in terms of ubiquity. The little guy has starred in three games in as many years, all without a drop in quality. The newest game, the Nintendo 3DS’ Planet Robobot, is the best of the three.

Counterpoint: The Warcraft Movie Is Actually Good

Years of hollow hype and months of flashy trailers aimed at getting non-World of Warcraft players into theatre seats left me with little hope that I would enjoy Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie. Well, surprise.

Hearts Of Iron IV: The Kotaku Review

You’ve probably won the Second World War in a video game before. Maybe as a commando, maybe as a pilot. But have you ever won the Second World War the way it was actually won? Because it was won with logistics, and…hey, wait, I promise it’s more exciting than it sounds.

Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 Review: The New Sweet Spot

The Geforce GTX 1080 tops the performance of the $1499 Titan X card for $1299. The Geforce GTX 1070 basically matches it for under $800. That’s just nuts.

The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine: The Kotaku Review

I’ve spent more than 100 hours in The Witcher 3 over the past year. It’s become the background of my gaming life, a boundless, monster-ridden home I can always return to. As the last Witcher (for now), The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is a grand goodbye, a final series of stories that sends Geralt off into the immaculately rendered sunset. It’s a literal fairy tale ending for gaming’s favourite monster-massacring curmudgeon.
