I’m also kinda digging the barrage of modes. One of the problems with some past events (mainly singles and Fight or Fright) was that people would find exploits or broken character combos that would eventually dominate that mode, and anybody who to play to win or fill out their challenge list would use them. I think Read more

Ah yes, the good ol’ “let’s butcher the French language a tad more” event name. It should be Grande Soirée, it’s pretty simple really since soirée is feminine. Or Grand Evening if you can’t muster the strength to do proper research [in this case, 30 seconds on Google Translate].

As a side note, how does one go about Read more

I think it’s totally reasonable to put a persistently living game like Fortnite on your year-end list. I look forward to the year that game like that wins several GotY awards years after its initial release.

I couldn’t even read Fahey’s list due to how slow it was loading. Whatever happened to Kotaku needs to be fixed, and fast. Because navigating in its current state is nigh impossible now.

It was the difficulty spikes that got me to bounce off of Control. Maybe one day I’ll go back. But not right now.

I was too stressed by Amnesia: The Dark Descent to finish it. I might've only gotten halfway through. It made me literally sick because of how scared and stressed I got. I still recommend it to everyone as an amazing horror game.

I love that this list has so many indie picks on it. They all look right up my alley.

Sorry to post this here but it’s the only page I’ve gotten to properly load - what’s with the website? It loads incredibly slowly, can barely scroll, and my comment is appearing 4-5 seconds after I type it. This is on a desktop and it’s not my connection. Feels like Kotaku has gotten worse over the last several days.

I’m so happy to find someone else who was too stressed by Control to finish it. 😖

I always expect I’m going to open a door and run into a zombie. Is that just me?

I literally just booted up this game for the first time in months a couple days ago.  It is a great game to walk away from for a while and then come back to see what they’ve added.  I still haven’t played any of the story mode yet.  Was going to wait until it is all out and Survival is such a fun experience anyway.  Read more

I rarely comment on this articles but I wanted to thank Hinderland for their work. I bought this game a few years ago without knowing much about it and it has become one of my favorite games ever. The experience of walking through these snowy woods, the sense of adventure you get is something very special that not a Read more

This game is the best exemple of how torn I am about kickstarter early access forever games.

On the one hand, it lets smaller studios get paid “upfront” and lots of cool project gets made that wouldn’t otherwise, on the other hand, I’ve spent soooo long playing the long dark sandbox that I don’t feel any addition would Read more

i’ve had a few crash to desktops while tinkering in the options menu but so far my gameplay has been bug free.

Prevaricate and abstruse... 2 words I’ve learned from reading Kotaku in the last week. Abstruse was uttered by Chris Kohler in the Luigi’s Mansion 3 review.

Thank you for expanding my vocabulary!

The good side of waiting for the Steam release is that it should all be fixed by then.

Riley what resolution are you playing at? I’m a little concerned this is the game that’s going to crush my rig and make me regret not sticking to 2560x1440 when I bought my new monitor.

Oh man, I almost bought this thing yesterday!
Guess I’ll just give it a couple of months until they patch it out and put it on sale.
