Battlefield 1: The Kotaku Review

Matthew McConaughey once said that sometimes you need to go back to move forward. The team at DICE must have been very moved by that sentiment. Taking it to heart and pushing the Battlefield series nearly 100 years back into World War I for this year’s release of Battlefield 1 was a gamble. It has largely paid off.

Acer Predator G1 Gaming PC Review: Small But Mighty

I am not covering up a Monster Energy can with the review badge at all. Nope.

Thanks to some incredibly clever engineering and an incredibly cramped Geforce GTX 1080, the Acer Predator G1 gaming PC packs an amazing amount of power into 16 litres of space, small enough to fit in its own custom suitcase.

Oversnatch: The Kotaku Review [NSFW]

Brazzers’ porn parody of Overwatch, titled Oversnatch, starts strong, but by the end it’s sweaty, spent, and sagging.

World Of Warcraft: Legion: The Kotaku Review 

Over the course of the first five expansion packs, Blizzard has slowly evolved World of Warcraft into something very different than the MMO that launched back in 2004. The Legion expansion feels like an entirely new game.

Phoenix Wright: Spirit Of Justice: The Kotaku Review

In a world plagued by legal manipulation, political corruption, and a general lack of fairness for the underprivileged, there’s something comforting about a video game where justice is always served. Sure, everyone lies under oath and one out of every four witnesses is a murderer, but at least the innocents always go free.

Origin Omni All-In-One Gaming PC Review: Everything In Its Place

I spent my first hour with Origin PC’s Geforce GTX 1080-powered, 86cm ultra-wide curved screen Omni all-in-one gaming PC just staring at my desk. There’s a lot more of desk now. I didn’t know I had so much desk.

Pan-Pan: The Kotaku Review

Indie game Pan-Pan offers players a world they desperately want to be in and then hampers their ability to enjoy it. The game’s take on exploration kept me pushing through frustrating puzzles. By the end of my journey, I’d worked through confusion all for the purpose of remaining in a fantasy paradise.

The Olympic Summer Games: The Kotaku Review

The Olympic Games is a massively multiplayer event wherein local champions from various territories convene in a single geographic location to compete in a wide variety of mini-games within larger categories (aquatic, track, gymnastics, cycling and others). Winners in each event acquire a gold medal. Second prize is a silver medal; third prize is a bronze medal. Fourth prize is the disappointment of everyone you love.

The Power Rangers Comic Is About So Much More Than Nostalgia

Boom! Studios’ would have had an easy win if their Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic was just pure nostalgia and fan service, directly pointed at the heart of mid-20’s nerds like me. The fact that it is exactly that and doing something interesting with its attitude-laden teenagers and the franchise simultaneously makes it surprisingly compelling reading.

Starbound: The Kotaku Review

The moment Starbound really clicked for me I was tunnelling into the center of a planet. I burst through yet another layer of stone, bone, and who knows what else, and I discovered the ruins of an abandoned civilisation. It was made up of… tiny toy houses that seemed to have been terrorised by an apocalyptic robot not much bigger than my character. I made short work of him. It was all so ridiculous and unexpected. Starbound holds the potential to do that millions of times.
