Carrion: The Kotaku Review

Carrion: The Kotaku Review

In Carrion you move so fast, so malevolently, it’s genuinely unsettling… even though you’re the one in control. And controlling this repellent offal-beast is never better than when you prepare surprise attacks for well-armed military forces.

Herman Miller Wants To Sell You A $2100 Gamer Chair

NBA Players Are Living The 2K Life

One of the weirdest (and worst!) things about the NBA 2K series is how the whole experience is built around the idea of a “neighbourhood” of stores, most of them heavily branded in-game advertisements. It’s not how the real world looks or works! But then, the NBA in 2020 isn’t…

Ooblets Is All About Dance Battles, Cute Critters, And Chillin’

Ooblets Is All About Dance Battles, Cute Critters, And Chillin’

Dog fighting sucks. Not a controversial opinion, but one that always enters my mind when I see or think about Pokémon. While I understand all the reasons why folks claim it’s different, it still feels too much like that terrible “sport.” Ooblets, out now in early access, fixes this major…
