Snacktaku Tries S'mores Oreos, AKA S'moreos

Remember when you’d go camping as a kid and sit around a campfire roasting marshmallows for s’mores? I don’t, which is why I used a cigarette lighter on a S’mores Oreo instead.


Snacktaku Tries Mountain Dew's Latest Throwback, Dewshine

Mountain Dew’s latest limited edition flavour does not contain alcohol, but it really, really wants to.


Gigabyte P35 Gaming Laptop: Australian Review

There’s a reason that laptops like the MacBook Pro sell so well. They’re not flashy or pretentious, but are more than powerful enough to handle the tasks that everyday computer users ask of them. The P35 is Gigabyte’s mainstream performance laptop, but the use of Nvidia’s powerful standalone GTX 970M graphics chip means it’s a great choice for gaming at the same time.


Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China: The Kotaku Review

The newest Assassin’s Creed sits somewhere between the last two. It’s good, not great. This time it’s in China. This time it’s 2D.

Sixth-Scale Hoth Commander Luke Skywalker Never Learns

It doesn’t matter if it’s 1980 on the silver screen or on the cluttered desk of a guy who critiques toys, if you’re Luke and you’re wearing Hoth gear you need to watch out for Wampas.


Tales From Borderlands Ep 2 Is What I've Wanted From Telltale For Ages

I’ve always said that the best thing about Telltale games isn’t QTE-heavy action or near-pornographic dedication to depictions of bad things happening to good people. It’s disarmingly intimate character moments. Tales from the Borderlands episode two is chock full of them.
