One of the top Skyrim mods right now adds Elsa from Frozen into your game. Just in case you know a tween girl who is still singing that damn song and is also deeply into Elder Scrolls, you can download it here.
My friend Kit Reed died on Sunday. She was a prolific, award-winning writer of speculative fiction. Her cluttered yellow house is now empty. I will no longer stop by for tea or make dumplings in her kitchen for Thanksgiving. Kit insisted on no memorials, finding even the prospect of friends meeting for a drink after…
SteamWorld Dig 2 is a game about exploring and finding secrets. There’s a plot, too, and some fun characters, but for the most part you dig in caves and look for treasure. I could do it forever.
When the first Destiny came out, I always admired my friends’ Destiny outfits. Now that the sequel is here, I’m determined to have a beautiful Guardian of my own. While I’m at it, I think I’ll judge some of Kotaku commenters’ best outfits.
Four Horsemen is a game about immigrants and refugees, and also kinda sorta the apocalypse. It’s a compelling game, written from a place of deep empathy about a topic that is important to consider in our current political climate. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite come together.
Got a great look for your Guardian in Destiny 2? Show me what you got! Post your favorite outfit in the comments, please and thank you.
The latest game in the NBA 2K series is frustrating to play if you don’t want to spend any additional money on top of the $60 you have to shell out to get the game.
A new skin for D.va in Heroes of the Storm was revealed over the weekend, and it’s themed around World of Warcraft’s Deathwing the Destroyer. Fans cannot stop drawing it.
Charlie Brooker’s body of work is defined by its pessimism. From the pointed critique of lazy hipster irony in Nathan Barley to the gory satire of reality shows depicted in Dead Set, his work pinpoints the worst of humanity. Black Mirror continues that bleak trend, sometimes to the point of parody. Last night, Brooker…
At my birthday party this weekend, I brought out my Nintendo Switch so I could be as cool as all those people in the commercials. Just like the people in the commercials, we all ended up standing while playing games, as well. It was super weird.
It’s 5:30, and I realize in half an hour I’ll be slammed with customers. Before they all get here I need to unclog the toilets, take out the trash, refill the drink machine, and prep the hot dogs, corndogs and pretzels. Before I get a chance, someone orders some fucking nachos. Cook Serve Delicious 2 barely leaves me…
While the Nintendo Switch lineup is looking healthier than it did at launch, sometimes it’s still hard to figure out what else to play besides the big first party games. Here’s five games you may not have tried from the eShop.
Just like I didn’t really think Homestuck would return after its first year-long break, I never really believed that Hiveswap, the game Kickstarted by the Homestuck team, would ever see the light of day. Today, Hiveswap: Act 1 has been released. It’s incredible that it exists, but more than that, it is a phenomenal,…
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is releasing December 1st on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s an extremely long presentation about all the things you will find therein, presented by a giant monster that is also a house.
On September 14th, at long last, the first episode of the Kickstarted Homestuck game, Hiveswap, will be released, only five years after it was originally announced. Homestuck was one of the biggest fandoms of the early 2010s, but what exactly was it? Well, that’s a complicated question.
Klei has announced Don’t Starve Hamlet, a new expansion for Don’t Starve. According to the description to this trailer, Hamlet will take Wilson to a city, with “pig shops, houses, new items, biomes and more.” While it won’t come out until early next year, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.
Nintendo’s phone app for the Switch was updated today, fixing two really annoying issues with voice chat.
If you’re looking for the name of a minor character in Star Wars or trying to brush up on the lore of the latest big video game, you’ll probably end up on a wiki website hosted by Fandom. Unlike Wikipedia, Fandom is for-profit, but all of the content is written for free by a community that is happy just to have…
Netflix dropped another season of BoJack Horseman this weekend. As is tradition, I sat down and watched all of it all in one go without realizing. While Kotaku’s managing editor Riley MacLeod, intern Chloe Spencer and I had some problems with the fourth season’s execution, we all still love this weird, depressing,…
Seven years ago, a 15-year-old started a YouTube channel called rabbidluigi. He had no way of knowing that in 2017 that would be a real character in a real video game.
