LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham: The Kotaku Review

Poor Hal Jordan. He can’t carry a movie, he can’t be trusted with his own LEGO playset, and when Traveller’s Tales creates a LEGO video game that is very much an epic Green Lantern yarn, he has to take a back seat to Bruce Wayne, the tedious title character of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.


Far Cry 4: The Kotaku Review

I want to write a letter to all the animals I’ve met in Far Cry 4.


Xbox One Review Update: One Year Later

Stop waiting. If you can afford it, it’s time to get a new-gen console, and the Xbox One is a worthwhile one to get.


Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire: The Kotaku Review

It’s easy to miss, but the people of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire whisper about things. Incredible things. Inexplicable things. The sorts of rumours involving legendary Pokémon that sound unbelievable, until you remember you’re dealing with a video game, where there is no such thing as a tall tale.


Dragon Age: Inquisition: The Kotaku Review

Dragon Age: Inquisition is a fantasy game. That word — fantasy — is a sort of shorthand, with a bunch of connotations. The word suggests to us that this game has dragons, and elves, and magic. There will be knights, monsters, and probably an evil witch or two.


A Look Back At The OneChanbara Movie

Over the past few weeks I’ve been playing the fanservice-filled hack n’ slash zombie killing fest that is OneChanbara Z2: Chaos. So what better time to look at the (absolutely horrible) 2008 film OneChanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad?


Endless Legend: The Kotaku Review

As part of our recent shift in focus, I’ve been playing (and thus writing) about Civilization even more than usual. And for a while, it seemed every time I did, someone deep in the comments section would be whispering about another game I should try that, *gasp*, might be better than Civ. So I did. And whaddya know, in a lot of ways, they were right.


Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare: The Kotaku Review

“Hold X to review Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.” If only it were that simple.


Kevin Spacey: The Kotaku Review

How is Kevin Spacey’s performance in his big video game debut? That all depends on which of the three versions of Spacey Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s campaign is serving up at the time.


Elgato Game Capture HD 60: Australian Review

If you want to watch the latest and greatest console video games being played online, there are really only two places to visit — YouTube and Twitch. If you’re an aspiring YouTuber or Twitch devotee, you can of course stream or upload video directly from your console to these services, but the inbuilt video encoders of both the PS4 and Xbox One leave a lot to be desired. For a more professional approach, Elgato’s Game Capture HD 60 lets you capture your hi-def gaming footage in excellent quality, and delivers it straight to your PC for editing or live-streaming as you like.
