Game developer Patricia Pizer was arrested in Rock Hill, South Carolina yesterday on charges that she assaulted a police officer while filming the officers with her phone. According to The Herald, the Rock Hill police department’s report states that Pizer assaulted an officer. Pizer’s husband, who says he has seen a…
Various game emulation sites are pulling down their software libraries, or ceasing to exist entirely, following a lawsuit filed by Nintendo against one of the largest of their kind. This is hardly tantamount to the erasure of all unauthorized copies of older video games from the internet, but it’s still gotten a lot…
How much do you love EarthBound? Do you love it so much that you’d shoot it into space?
The first time I ever played a WarioWare game, I was drunk.
This week, I’ve been playing the latest entry in Nintendo’s series of wacky compilations of seconds-long “microgames,” the first for Nintendo 3DS (and the first since 2010's WarioWare: DIY). I’ll have a full review for its release on August 3, but for now, I’m still going through all of its features.
Remember opening up your first copy of Secret Of Mana? Those memories are probably quite different, depending on if you lived in Japan, North America, or Europe.
It’s a worn-out cliche these days to say that a game is “perfect for the Switch,” but that really does apply to Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which will become the latest Wii U transplant to arrive on Nintendo’s new console this Friday.
In the 1990s, a company called Wisdom Tree made serious bank selling Bible-themed video games for consoles. And in many cases, they were just tweaking existing games and giving them a Bible twist, with often hilarious results.
AJ Styles, the WWE wrestler announced this week as the cover athlete for the game WWE 2K19, has an interesting game-related side project going on: He goes out hunting for classic games, filming the search and putting it on YouTube as a show called Retro Styles.

Prior to her interview at E3 this week with Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami, Kotaku’s Cecilia D’Anastasio asked me if there was anything I wanted to know.
Nintendo kicked off the final day of Treehouse Live with a huge announcement for fans of its classic games: Two arcade games that have never been officially released on home consoles are coming to Switch’s Arcade Archives: the original Donkey Kong, which is available now, and Sky Skipper, coming in July.
Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion DLC will be available tomorrow evening, June 13, Nintendo said at E3 today. The expansion lets you play as an Octoling in multiplayer, but first, you have to make your way through a series of tricky single-player challenge levels. It’s $19.99.
Wow, that was a weird Sony press conference, huh? Started off in a standing-room-only “church,” then cut away to a long intermission while the live attendees shuffled rooms. Want to know what it was like for folks on the ground? Kotaku’s Tim Rogers will show you.
Nintendo’s E3 2018 booth is mostly full of increasingly-sweaty attendees playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but it’s also home to a veritable museum of real-life custom props drawn from Smash, and therefore from the company’s rich history of games.
One more press conference before E3 2018 begins, and it’s the wild card. Sometimes Nintendo delivers megaton after megaton, sometimes it plays its cards close to its chest. What’s this year’s Direct—which Nintendo says focuses on Switch games for 2018—got in store? Smash, at least. Watch the Nintendo Direct here or…
