I think I read Gardens of the Moon forever ago and finished it despite finding it rather impenetrable. I don’t remember anything about it, though. Worth revisiting?
I’ve read some Joe Abercrombie and just bounced off it. Name of the Wind was OK, but my goodness, the second book was so atrocious that during some of the middle parts I was just skipping whole pages.
Yup, fixed that, thanks.
Let’s see... for starters: Blossom Tales, Celeste, Stardew Valley, and Shovel Knight are all just top-notch games. I also really enjoyed SteamWorld Dig 2 and, while it’s not an indie, Dragon Quest Builders has become one of my favorites.
I loved my Vita for a very long time. Now I have a Switch. I can’t imagine a better successor TBH. When it inevitably gets Phoenix Wright and new visual novels and every indie game in the world, all will be good.
It’s tricky and amorphous, but that’s one of the rubrics we use when trying to decide when and how to report on something. Does this thing have “news value”? Is it really going to serve people to know this in advance? There’s never an easy answer — it’s a spectrum — but something like “the next project from storied…
Oh, the difference is that this one popped up everywhere on the internet this morning. At a certain point if a lot of people are talking about a rumor, and we’ve also heard that it’s true, we do feel obligated to share it with our own readers.
Scratch that - the fine print of the trailer reveals that Avalanche Studios, the developer of Mad Max, is making this one.
I don’t think id is making this one, but Bethesda hasn’t announced the developer yet.
Nahhhh, sorry. I get the excitement over E3 surprises, I really do, but we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t report the news.
I can say that 1) I’m trying to do something different than the first book - it’ll still be full of original reporting and hopefully interesting stories/anecdotes, but it’s not just going to be an anthology of standalone stories. And 2) I’ll be sending out updates on this mailing list: …
We knew the article was coming, and we’ve known for a while that layoffs have been hanging over our head, although we still have no idea what that will look like or what Univision envisions for our future.
We had a long conversation about leaks on the latest episode of Splitscreen - it’s worth checking out: https://kotaku.com/some-reasons-why-the-games-industry-is-so-secretive-an-1825929139
Yeah, although I’ve accepted that working in journalism means existing in a state of constant volatility. The fact that we’ve survived through so many ridiculous events over the past three years is itself miraculous. We’ll just keep trying to do good work and we hope that you’ll all keep supporting us both as a…
Weird? No. It makes me extremely proud. Also, thank you for the article idea.
What’re you looking for? We publish lots of stories based on insider information, we’re just less inclined these days to publish every single leak that gets sent our way. Speaking personally, these days I’m way less interested in reporting on things that you’re going to find out about in the future anyway, and way…
I’d love to tell the FFXV/Versus XIII story one day, and I really want to hear Konami’s side of the whole Kojima dispute, but both of those have been very difficult for cultural and logistical reasons.
I’m reading book three in the Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne by Brian Staveley, which has been up there with the best fantasy series I’ve ever read. I’m going to write about it on Kotaku when I finish, but I highly, highly recommend it.
