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.


NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Review: Time For An Upgrade

After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia’s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here. The GeForce GTX 1080 is much better than the pieces of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty that came before it.


Homefront: The Revolution: The Kotaku Review

Glitches and wobbles aside, Homefront: The Revolution is an adequate shooter that features some interesting moments. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t good either.


Doom: The Kotaku Review

The new Doom, really, is rather like the old Doom. You fight swarms of hulking demons. You never stop moving for fear of being swamped in laser fire, missiles and pile-driving hell knights. Your screen is permanently suffused with explosions, blood and chunks of bodies. You, the Doom Marine, are what stands between an army of demons accidentally unleashed on a Martian mining installation, and domination of our realm. Thank goodness you’ve access to such big guns.


Battleborn: The Kotaku Review

If someone had told me at the beginning of the year that I’d be reviewing Battleborn in May, I would have asked them “Which one is Battleborn again?” Now that I’ve spent a couple dozen hours in Gearbox Software’s latest I think I’ve figured it out.
