As a kid, I never liked camping. I went to a multitude of Boy Scout and church camps, but I could never escape an overriding feeling of anxiety, like the trees were going to close in and suffocate me with their bristly branches. Turns out, I was just doing it…
Bungie has once again taken Destiny 2 offline, following fresh reports of some players losing crafting materials following today’s hotfix.
The first Samsung Unpacked for 2020 is now in the bag. With it comes the new Samsung Galaxy S20 range which has three phones (and a lot of variants) – the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. Thanks to yet another leaky boat, we weren’t surprised by the specs, but now…
Borderlands 3 players have had almost six months to wring as much enjoyment out of the game as possible, including by reaching level 50, the game’s maximum. Now, the developers are ready to introduce the first level cap increase, which will give players the chance to earn three more levels…
Outriders, the co-op RPG shooter revealed at last year’s E3, has been delayed until this holiday and will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X as well as current consoles according to a new trailer. It’s by People Can Fly, the studio behind Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgement.
Earlier this month, Funimation announced that it would no longer stream Interspecies Reviewers, stating the show fell outside its standards. Now a Japanese TV channel is also cancelling the program.

New maps and fan favourites are coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s “Season Two” beginning on February 11. Activision and Infinity Ward have finally announced the roadmap that details the flow of content from day one until the upcoming weeks.
I was always cautious about Daemon X Machina on the Switch because of how janky the performance looked. This week, the mecha game comes to the PC, so it’s a perfect time for a second look.
After two seasons in Burbank, California, the Overwatch League has finally achieved its goal of scattering teams across the globe to their various home cities. Well, mostly. Paris Eternal, somewhat conspicuously, is operating out of New Jersey. New Jersey, in case you’re from a non-Earth planet, is not in France.
It’s been 18 years since Sega’s dancing reporter starred in her own rhythm adventure. After nearly two decades of cameos, Ulala gets her groove back on February 25 with the release of Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash for PlayStation VR.
There’s a reason why I don’t return to Animal Crossing games long after I stop playing them. But stupidly, I decided to break that rule last week. I have some regrets.
Star Citizen is probably still years away from what anyone would consider a “full” release, but what’s getting built along the way is pretty astonishing.
The Sims 4 is great, and it’s even better with cheats. But if you’re playing The Sims 4 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you might need some help accessing the cheat menu. Here’s how you do it.
There’s nothing funnier to me than enormous bugs being discovered in very old games, and so we come today to this Yoshi’s Island misadventure shared by the ever-wonderful Supper Mario Broth, which when triggered will simply stop your game for, oh, 25 minutes.
It only took about 15 minutes of zipping around in Scourgebringer for my fingers to start feeling sore. One moment, bell chimes were echoing through a peaceful room. The next, I was tearing through enemies in every direction while some heavy metal kicks up. I’ll strap ice to my knuckles…
NPCs can make or break a game. My PC introduced me to some of my first NPCs. In Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar, a variety of NPCs were there to test your morals and virtues so you could grow as an avatar; as a kid, I really thought I…
A Short Hike isn’t just a delightfully relaxing game. It’s also an unexpectedly real outing, with an ending that hit me hard.
The idea behind Pokémon games is a weird one. Kids trekking across the country in their quest to collect cute, sometimes dangerous, creatures is strange enough. But the things I saw while playing Pokémon Sword? Hoo boy.
In 2019, I played the brilliant sci-fi space exploration game, Outer Wilds. If only the game’s time loop was a real thing so that I could go back and experience it all over again.
I love picking fights with tough monsters in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, even when I don’t have to. Why? Because it means I get to hear one of the game’s fantastic battle themes over and over again.
Hi Kotaku! It’s Ben, Narelle, and Peter back as your guest writers for the weekend. It’s been too long!

The New Zealand Games Developers Association (NZGDA) released their annual report Friday, detailing the continued growth of the New Zealand games industry over the last decade. The report revealed that New Zealand has doubled its games industry’s revenue over the last two years, at $195 million ($NZ203.4 million).
Kentucky Route Zero is unlike anything else. It’s quiet, subtle and often frustrating. It deals in metaphors and imagery that’s obtuse and deliberately vague. You won’t know what’s going on half the time, but that’s OK, because the real beauty of the game is in your journey and the connections…
Kingdom Come’s inconsistent adherence to hardcore survival and historical elements means that while some parts of the game are fine, you may find that others are an unnecessary drag. Luckily, there are already a ton of mods that can help with that.
The final episodes of Netflix’s animated show BoJack Horseman came out last week, ending the story of an alcoholic has-been actor who’s also, inexplicably, a horse. In the final season, BoJack goes to rehab and then tries to square his new sober lifestyle with his past. The part that rang…
Yesterday’s scribble was a lot easier than Ape Out. Did you guess what it was?
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the next free game offered on the Epic Games Store, and while it was called both ‘janky’ and ‘confusing’ upon its original release, you just can’t go past that price.
This holiday season, the next PlayStation and Xbox consoles are scheduled to arrive. But the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, just like much of the world’s consumer electronics, are being manufactured in China. And China is currently the focal point of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.
