The folks behind the wonderful English translation of Mother 3 are still working on the project over a decade later. Earlier today — which also happens to be the 15th anniversary of Nintendo’s milestone RPG in Japan — they dropped a new patch that irons out some lingering bugs in…
The baseball game is the big one, but that’s not the only game en route to Xbox Game Pass. Here’s everything coming to Microsoft’s games-on-demand service in the next few weeks:

Not traumatised enough from the first season of LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS? Well, round 2 is just around the corner.
You really don’t! Clocking in at 2.9m (or 9’6″) tall, Lady Dimitrescu is probably the absolute last individual you’d want stepping on you.
League of Legends has been doing fashion collaborations for years, but traditionally they’ve been more haute couture, high-end brands regular gamers would never be able to buy. Uniqlo’s upcoming offering, on the other hand, should be way more accessible. There’s no information on what inspiration Uniqlo is taking with the line,…
As the slow rollout of Cyberpunk 2077 updates continues, modders have dug into the game’s source code to recover anything they can get their hands on. So far, they’ve found hidden gig missions with broken source code, new quests, hidden NPCs and even deeper ties to Cyberpunk 2077’s RPG roots.
Without prior warning, developers Housemarque uploaded a ton of new video footage of their upcoming shooter-roguelike Returnal on early Tuesday morning. And unsurprisingly, it’s continuing to look like the neatest exclusive on the PS5 thus far.
Management sims and drugs are a match made in heaven. Dope Wars, which was inspired by the Star Trader BASIC game, was one of the ’90s best timewasters. But even today, where attitudes towards drugs and their legalisation has changed significantly, marketing a game about precisely that – weed – is still surprisingly hard.
It absolutely rules that a contingent of Resident Evil fans woke up today bummed that they missed the chance to try the latest game in the series because they have lives and families. I love that I just had to type that sentence. This is definitely not the dumbest, most…
Toy manufacturer Mattel is turning Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots into a movie, an idea that’s so brilliantly idiotic that I’ll be first in line when tickets go on sale.
Battle royale Apex Legends is coming to phones, developer Respawn announced today. The mobile version will begin testing in certain regions this spring, with a wider rollout to come.
Researchers are testing whether a video game can help treat the cognitive effects of covid-19. A study uses the game EndeavorRx, which, last June, became the first video game requiring a prescription to play.
Last week Final Fantasy XIV released the first half of its final Shadowbringers update, entitled Death Unto Dawn, alongside the launch of its PS5 beta. This is the last major patch before the game’s highly anticipated Endwalker expansion, and it makes for an engaging and challenging burst of endgame content…
Welcome to Morning Music, Kotaku’s ongoing hangout for folks who love video games and the cool-arse sounds they make. Today we’re preparing to fight off the undead as we listen to fantastic tunes from Zombie Army 4: Dead War.
Amazon Game Studios cancelled its long-awaited Lord of the Rings MMORPG over the weekend and for a hot second there, I was really bummed about it. But then I remembered that we’ve already got an incredible Tolkein MMORPG – Lord of the Rings Online (LotRO) – and it deserves more respect.
Like they did with Max Payne, Sex Positive Gamer have sat down with Grand Theft Auto V and played it as peacefully as possible, keeping murders to the absolute minimum required to progress the story. And it’s still a lot of murders.
Spyro the Dragon is generally a pretty wholesome video franchise, but a recently unearthed prototype has revealed the rudeness hiding behind the scenes.
If you missed out on Judgment the first time around, this week you have absolutely no reason not to jump back on board. I’ve argued before how Judgment was basically all the soap opera goodness of Yakuza without sequels of baggage and backstory, except you still get all the wonderful…
This is Ana Muñiz. They’re a random person in Cyberpunk 2077, with a pretty cool haircut and a nifty fashion sense. How do they spend their time?
There was an unconfirmed report that multiple buyers were looking at acquiring Square Enix. This evening in Japan, the Tokyo-based game maker released a statement denying it.
This week, a supposed player claimed to have been banned from action RPG Path of Exile for using a macro to make the game accessible. Other players and accessibility activists took up their cause. Now, it appears the whole thing was a troll. In my professional journalistic opinion: what the…
By all accounts, Half Life: Alyx is a phenomenal game. But because it’s VR-only, large swathes of gamers simply cannot play it due to the high costs of VR hardware and the computers to support it. To remedy this, modders have been working on No VR mods for Alyx, with…
Buckner & Garcia’s hit ‘80s song “Pac-Man Fever” was a wholesome, catchy tune, but nothing’s safe from the climate-wrecking tech scam known as NFTs. Now, because 2021 is trying to be as bad as 2020 I guess, Buckner decided to grace the world with a single called “NiFTy Fever.”
If you’re looking at pretty anime people in anything less than 4K resolution, are you really looking at them? Genshin Impact’s native PlayStation 5 version launches with the April 15 release of version 1.5, giving you that sweet 4K support along with enhanced textures and faster loading times.
Joining the likes of other geeky sake comes a line of Ghost in the Shell-themed stuff. Kanpai!
Towards the end of the Resident Evil showcase, Capcom finally released a full-on trailer for the upcoming Netflix show Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
Amidst the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Valve co-founder and internet gaming dad Gabe Newell got stuck in New Zealand. The world went into lockdown, and instead of heading home to Seattle to cope with the United States’ brand of public health management, Newell stayed down under. That resulted in a happy affair with the country throughout all of 2020, so much so that Valve employees started asking about potentially moving to New Zealand permanently. But in a chat with Rocketwerkz co-founder Dean Hall, it’s become apparent that Valve’s good intentions haven’t quite evolved into action.
For reasons unclear to me, an additional 14 minutes of the Warcraft movie dropped on Twitter overnight and I have so many questions. Perhaps most importantly: does this mean we’re getting a sequel? “In these deleted scenes from Warcraft, Lothar receives Boomstick at Ironforge, Antonidas asks Khadgar to be the…
Out of all the new games out this week, there’s one that we’ve had our eye on for a while — because it’s all about the spooky re-discovery of one of America’s most haunted cities, Twin Lakes.
Sometimes you just want a couple of days inside to chill, have a good sleep in and unwind. And also blow a hell of a lot of stuff up virtually, which this weekend just became uncannily suited for.
If you missed out on the RTX 3000 GPU rush and were wondering when Nvidia’s supply might return to normal? I have some not great news for you.
