Destiny's Best Rocket Launcher Doesn't Need Advertising

Video: Destiny players sure love the Gjallarhorn — and it’s created a hilarious culture around the weapon. Mr Fruit Gaming Channel pretends to be a Gjallarhorn salesman here, and in doing so, jabs at all the silly things surrounding the Gjallarhorn, and the people that use it.

Shadow Of Mordor's Nemesis System Could Have Been Way More Complex

Shadow of Mordor surprised everyone with its unique features like the oft-praised “nemesis system“. The game’s novelty and ambition meant that it couldn’t accomplish everything it set out to though. Developer Monolith opened up this week about some things that were left on the cutting room floor.

Rez Is Still A Near-Perfect Video Game

I was perfect in a video game once. And that video game was perfected in me.

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell: The Kotaku Review

“Is that all hell’s got?” Johnny Gat, main character of Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell, would often taunt as I mowed down Satan’s demonic hordes. As the game went on, I couldn’t help but find myself asking the same question.

Far Cry 4‘s post-release stuff kicked off this week with Escape From Durgesh Prison, a new timed challenge mode that’s now available for purchase either individually or as part of the game’s season pass. Sadly, it doesn’t get things off to a great start.

Far Cry 4 Got Its First Bit Of DLC Today

Briefly: Far Cry 4 got its first bit of DLC today, “Escape from Durgesh Prison”. It’s a timed challenge mode that can be played alone or in co-op (the best way to play Far Cry 4, if you ask me).

Rock Band 3 Is Getting Its First DLC In Almost Two Years

Huh, so this is pretty cool. After 21 months of silence, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Rock Band 3are getting some new songs, developer Harmonix announced today. It might seem strange for a game released in 2010 to get new content so late in the game. But then again: it’s not like people have stopped making music!
