Kotaku Editor Natalie Degraffinreid and I watched the second episode of the new season of Black Mirror, which is about two old friends that reconnect through a video game. If that sounds both tame and normal, we would both like to assure you that it is neither. It was so out of control that we had to sit down and talk…
In late March, porn performer and sex worker activist Bella Bathory discovered that her Instagram account had vanished. A person going by the name “Omid” at-mentioned her on Twitter: “your IG account was deleted due to your porn activities,” it read, with the hashtags “#say_no_to_porn” and “#no_porn.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib choked up during a congressional hearing on Tuesday while reading one of the torrent of death threats she said she has received for the crime of being one of the first Muslim women ever to serve in Congress.
Keeping your browsing anonymous is just as important on your phone as it is on your laptop and desktop—whether you want to thwart the advertisers, stop big tech building up a profile on you, or just keep your browsing to yourself, you don’t want to leave your privacy to chance, especially considering we all use our…
Literally the one thing Sony had to do was not use proprietary memory cards. I have a handful of digital PS1 games that I’d rather play on a handheld than on my PS3, and I still “purchased” a bunch of Vita games through PS+, and I’d love to get a Vita just to play them all, but without a really big—and really…
I haven’t played many “hard” games, but for me I’d say the Path of Pain from Hollow Knight.
Man, I’ve never been able to get this commercial out of my head since I was a child. WTF did it have to do with the game? It’s creepy as shit.
She’s trying to look more like Ivanka to keep her husband’s attention?
The South is not misunderstood. It never has been.
I think it should say “Dark Souls is an action-roll playing game”
Spider-Man baby! I spent a good solid five minutes trying to get this photo.
John Cook, two years later, is aware that the headline he wrote was intentionally incendiary.
Not your fault, Melanie, and I’m sure you’ve done your homework on what is obviously an important story. But the fact that Gizmodo has never revisited its own behavior on the earlier, damaging FB news curation story does justify a certain amount of skepticism about this outlet’s reporting in this area more generally.…
I’d say you’re half-right, here.
shut up Ron Howard!
One of the many purchasable dance emotes in Fortnite is from Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” It’s called the Tidy Emote, and goes for 500 V-Bucks, the equivalent of $5 in the game’s rotating store. Players who get it can make their character mimic Snoop’s wheel turning gesture from the video’s “park it like it’s…
Yeah, I unfortunately have zero control over any of that but the tension is not lost to me. (I acknowledge it in the piece after all.) I can’t control what advertisers or corporate does but I can write this article and call attention to the situation.
Ha! Honestly, if you play frequently (my group meets once a week), having a good organizer (official or homemade) is so huge. We’ve shaved our 4-player sessions down to about 2.5-3 hours, including setup and tear down included. It used to take at least an hour longer than that.
