For whatever it’s worth, Kotaku still has the best capital-j Journalism in the video game industry today.
Learn the ability to summon metal slimes and abuse it if you want to grind. Otherwise, you should just avoid grinding for the sake of grinding, as it really isn’t required in the game.
To paraphrase Kotaku’s own Tim Rogers, sure the game is grindy *puts on sunglasses* if you don't know how to count cards.
Now that the dust and fanboyism has settled. How is Dragon Quest XI? Worth buying if you’ve never played the others?
This is a really cool feature that I didn’t know about! I kinda wish you had included an example or two so we could see exactly how it works, comparing the original text to the altered misdirection. But I’m going to be playing this huge demo anyway, so nothing beats firsthand experience. I am ready to suffer.
I get wanting the game to be harder. But I’m more interested in the new content and don’t want to make my second playthrough longer.
Is there an option to make leveling faster? Because while the game might be easy, it sure is grindy. I would double dip in a heartbeat if I can make progression faster.
Oh man. I’m tempted to start the game fresh with lying NPC’s. That sounds fun
You know, they keep telling me that Kotaku should only cover sports, and I’ve just had to say no.
Jason and I have talked about this a lot, as recently as this morning. We weigh a lot of factors, including the public’s curiosity, whether the news would ever be known otherwise if we didn’t report it, any public good that might be served, any ways it might expose some wrongdoing (seldom relevant to the kind of leak…

I have bad news for Barry. Gamestop won’t be around in two years. Outside of plastic and cloth ThinkGeek junk and diminishing valued physical games, GaemStop does not have any valuable assets or Good Will. The Company should have been purchasing real property such as strip and shopping centers from 2008 to 2015, and…
PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, which both use physical media.
Eh. Good enough reason to throw some cash that way.
GameStop isn’t a going concern - they’ve got more than enough cash to last for several more years. The big issue I see is that even with the launch of new consoles next year - game consoles are their lowest margin item (I think it’s about 8% gross profit, compared to 40%-50% for a used game). Combine that with the…
Went into a gamestop recently and the ratio of games to merchandise has changed a lot, the amount of games to buy even second hand seemed to be greatly reduced,. And knowing what companies are like i can imagine there will be some hair brained schemes coming from upper management coming, funny thing is though the…
that’s like seeing a pothole from 50 feet away and saying, “oh that looks fine, i’ll just drive over it”, but when you actually get there, half your car drops into the street lol
Well, anyone invested in something would of course talk up buying it. If a bunch of people buy and the price goes up he can always sell for less of a loss.
Biggest hit for me is Game Informer, they do great work and I don’t want to see them go!
