As news goes, the Video Game Awards are more about the future games they will tease than the existing ones they honour. Kotaku will be in Los Angeles on Friday covering the gala. Here is an internal chatroom discussion among Stephen Totilo, Luke Plunkett, Mike Fahey, Kirk Hamilton and yours truly as we try to pin down the most expected unexpected announcement of the evening.
It warms my disease-ridden, whale-oil tainted heart to hear that the wonderful Dishonored was a financial success for its publisher Bethesda. In this age of sequels and iron-sights, games this original, smart and flat-out good don’t come around that often.
Yeah, I know. Skrillex game channels The Legend of Zelda. Seems like it might be bad, or at least, haphazard. But as it turns out, Skrillex Quest, a new official browser game, is really pretty cool. It something less of a surprise considering that it comes from Jason Oda, the same guy who brought us that amazing Perfect Strangers game.
The Wii U version of Skylanders Giants doesn’t look noticeably better or worse than the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version. It plays exactly the same as well — the Skylander toys are placed on the USB-connected portal, they come to life in the game, adventure ensues. For the Wii U version of Skylanders Giants, the Wii U control pad makes all the difference.
ArenaNet’s massively multiplayer Guild Wars 2 has been out for a few months now, and many of us here at Kotaku really like the game. Like any MMO, its already changed quite a bit since launch, and ArenaNet has begun regularly adding new content, quests, and gear to extend the game’s life well into the future.
