Smash on Wii U is less than a month away, so how about a neat poster by Marinko Milosevski to prepare yourself? Here's the full thing: If you're here to catch up on the-week-in-Kotaku you can do so as u ...
I don't find horror games anywhere near as scary as the very real terrifying things that just kind of... happen in some video games. I mean, have you seen Skyrim's living mannequin glitch? Heard the legend of Minecraft's Herobrine? Stuff is messed up. It's also one of gaming's greatest strengths, something no other medium can do. Allow me to explain.
Awwww, Solid Snake is so tiny. And so is Gray Fox. I sure hope nothing bad happens to either of them, ever. This interactive chibi-fied diorama of Metal Gear Solid 1 was put together by Glenatron, and it's full of nice little touches. It nails the basic style of MGS 1 while also making everyone look like adorable gnome children with debilitating smoking habits. It's pretty great.
It's time for some more Fallout lore, and being that it's Halloween, what better place to focus on than Fallout 3's Point Lookout? For those that didn't play Point Lookout, the DLC adds an eerie swampland area where the player gets to see what happens to communities that didn't actually get blown up by the bombs.
Boring baby costumes are a dime a dozen. Oh you're a bee? A dinosaur? Big whoop, kid. Try a MechWarrior costume on for size. Ryan Bowen made this perfect father-son costume for his pint sized kid and future BattleMech pilot Geraint. The Sunder BattleMech costume is made out of a combination of PVC Pipe skeleton wrapped in cardboard with zip ties.
Many of the attempts at generating fright in The Evil Within just feel… clunky. Doubtful? Just watch a comprehensive breakdown of the survival horror game's missteps. Be careful not to step in any blood. The same fellow who's catalogued the wrongness in DmC and Remember Me comes ba ...
Some movie music will keep on giving you the chills, long after the credits rolling. The haunting piano riff from John Carpenter's classic horror movie Halloween makes it one of those tunes. But, when it's a bunch of video game car horns bleating it out? It's actually kind of funny. YouTube chan ...

Internet speeds in America are pathetic, which you probably already knew if you...live in America. A new piece in The New York Times report makes that more clear. The lack of competition in the U.S. broadband industry could have long-term economic consequences…Read moreRead on Choice quote: "Downloading a high-definition movie takes about seven seconds in Seoul, Hong Kong, To ...
Difficulty is always a thorny issue in video games. One gamer's crushing slog through a dungeon is another's mindless loot grind. People are particularly divided about Shadow of Mordor's difficulty right now: some find it too hard, many others too easy. The latter group has begun some interesting experiments.
It surprised people when Nintendo revealed alternate costumes for Bayonetta that let her look like some of the company's family-friendly characters. Now, you can see the design process for getting Platinum Games' sexy witch-warrior into Princess Peach, Link and Starfox costumes. There was a Nintendo Direct earlier today, and it was all about Bayonetta 2.
This is probably the closest thing we'll get to a PC version of Mario Kart, er, ever. Well, that was fast. Only a little more than a day after Valve added karts/bumper kart combat to Team Fortress 2, someone's already released a Mario Kart mod with three levels. It's mostly rooted in the Halloween event's brand of treat-centric trickery, so your item selection is for now lim ...
Desperate times call for desperate measures—and when players are running low on food, there's no telling what they'll do in DayZ to survive. In this take by Commandoflauge, starving DayZ players have no choice but to sta ...
Here at Kotaku, we don't spend nearly enough time talking about JRPGs. I mean, sure, we have a column every week dedicated to JRPGs, and we're usually pretty good about covering RPG news from Japan, and I do my best to cover JRPGs as much as humanly possible. But, still. There's just so much to discuss.
