One of my most enduring game memories is getting into a car in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and tearing down the road to Two Tribes on Wave 103. Pop is the perfect gaming accompaniment - why can’t we have more of it?
I was idly contemplating what playing a Farming Simulator game for the first time would be like, because Farming Simulator 2015 is coming out on consoles in May. This family playing it together just made me super excited about it.
Kikopa Games has just released a game called Minkomora. It’s an exploratory game, a soft floaty little thing - but the best thing about it is the game manual.
I’ll admit it, I’ll admit it. I downloaded Runnin Through The 6, a free iOS endless runner made by Nico Uribe, because I’m a huge Drake fan. But it is rubbish.
Yesterday I gave you the terrible yet awesome Mickey Rourke raps from Rogue Warrior to lull you through your Saturday. Sunday is a much worse deal.
There aren’t any games that can give you the authentic experience of what it’s like to be a parent. But I am willing to reckon free game Jostle Parent is one of the best attempts at it.
Me and my partner in crime Irene Koh (the artist on Batgirl Secret Origins #10 for DC) made a comic together about what would happen if the two heavyweights of the N64 Jo Dark and James Bond met.
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (1992) has a part where you can play the initial titles or credits sequence at the beginning of the game. I find myself wishing that way more narrative-based games would do this adorable moviesque thing.
League of Legends forum-goers are perplexed by the elusiveness of this rare duck seen wandering about in the public beta environment of the game. It’s a time for duck huntin’.
The PC gamer in me is being TWANGED by the look of this lovely first person shooter/Revolution Management hybrid Bunker Punks, probably because it appears to be a bit Doom II but in roguelike form.
The last time someone mentioned this tiny slice of Bethesda Softworks MASTERPIECE on Kotaku it was 2009. That can’t be right? That can’t be right! Let’s get your Saturday ON TRACK, my lovelies.
For all of 2014 I’ve travelled, via crowdfunding from my generous readers, to stay with game developers around the world and write about them.
I really like the idea of Dontnod’s episodic game choice drama-em-up Life Is Strange, but really it just ended up making me wish it would shut up and let me experience it instead.
Good morning! My name is Cara Ellison and I’m doing a bit of guest editing for you lovely lot this weekend.
