The weekend is for trying to figure out what to do with the kale I bought to make kale smoothies with before learning that kale smoothies are disgusting. Also, video games.
While on vacation last week, I finally finished Far Cry 5. Though I’d already spoiled myself on the ending (occupational hazard), I was surprised by how moving I found it when I finally got there. The end wraps up the game’s biggest questions in a satisfying way.
The weekend is for it being the beginning of my vacation! I am very excited to learn to cook new food, replace my dead plants, and play a lot of video games.
I hated fighting Faith Seed, the highest-ranking woman in Far Cry 5’s fictional cult. She was confusing, annoying, and—like all the game’s enemies—wanted to kill me. I was supposed to hate her, but I didn’t relish winning our final battle. Faith embodies the ugliness of the game’s cult, The Project at Eden’s Gate,…
The weekend is for binge-watching a PBS Masterpiece Theater show about a WWI department store, because you’re just that cool. It’s also for playing video games.
It’s been six months since Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launched for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. This sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order appeared during a tense time in US politics, promoted and released while racism and white nationalism were at the forefront of Americans’ minds. Here’s how things have gone…
Eastward is an upcoming game from Chucklefish and Pixpil Games, coming to PC and Mac. The developers say its “an adventure game combining RPG elements, with a visual style inspired by 90s Japanese animation.”

If you need some David Cage before Detroit comes out in May, next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup has you with Beyond: Two Souls. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus account.
In Frostpunk, a new snowy city-builder by This War of Mine studio 11 Bit that is out today, the player develops a city in a frozen wastelands. You must fuel the churning generator at the heart of your town, feeding it enough coal to keep your people alive. The cold is your first and greatest foe, and it’s my favorite…
The weekend is for laundry (boo) but also sleeping in (yay). Also, video games.
I never pass up the opportunity to drink in a game. I’ve visited every bar in The Witcher 3. I’ve filled Adam Jensen’s pockets with booze in Deus Ex; I’ve chugged those drinks in the bars in Hengsha and Prague, alone in his apartment, or on street corners just because. I’ve gotten Commander Shepard blackout drunk in…
Hello! It’s time for Kotaku’s Sunday Comics, your weekly roundup of the best webcomics. The images enlarge if you click on the magnifying glass icon.
The weekend is for the weather being nice enough to hang out on my fire escape, which means returning all of the things that have fallen from the upstairs neighbors’ fire escape onto mine. It’s also for playing video games!
