Podcast: Boycotting Games And Destiny

Should Kotaku abstain from covering games if they launch broken on day one? Why haven't we reviewed Destiny's new Dawning update? And just how do we do our GOTY deliberations? All that and more on today's Kotaku Splitscreen.

We're reaching into the mailbag this week, answering your questions on all sorts of topics. We talk about Japanese games' stories (and how they tend to escalate fast), side stories in open-world RPGs and how VR might have cool applications outside of gaming.

You can listen to this week's episode on iTunes or Google Play, or directly here. (MP3 download here.)


    No need for a boycott. In fact do the opposite, pour on the attention. Shame these companies whenever they fuck up


      Does Fallout 4 count as a fk up ? lol Gosh that was not a great game or Rpg for that matter, Damn.. I made myself sad.

        You should try Survival Mode. I picked it back up about a month ago, now that all the DLC is finally out, and after loading on a tonne of mods and getting bored in the first ten minutes, decided to abandon them all and try the harder Survival Mode. It's made the game an entirely different (and impossible-to-understate just how much harder) experience.

        It's basically made things like, "Get to Greygarden from Starlight Drive-In," into actual projects. Quests like, "Clear Fanueil Hall" to unlock another precious settlement becomes a major undertaking over several days. It turns every Settlement into a precious, desperately-relieving oasis in an ocean of potential lost progress.

          Thx, I shall, I started a new character ages ago just to have a look at the survival mode and was surprised to see that you could refill bottles, I Continued with my other very hard save game though but now i'm thinking survival could be special .
