  • How The New Nintendo 3DS's C-Stick Works in Super Smash Bros.

    Published at Kotaku - 7 readers

  • You've To Got Really Love The Evil Within To Spend $300 On This Guy

    Kotaku - - 6 readers - I can understand a Skyrim statue, and those Doom plushies were about the cutest thing ever, but the latest fruit of Bethesda's partnership with collectible maker Gaming Heads is a $300 statue of a man with a barbwire-wrapped safe spouting tentacles for a head. That's not okay. Now I have not played The Evil Within yet. I have downloaded the game to my computer. There it sits, taunting me.
  • My Favorite (Tiny) Improvement To Sleeping Dogs

    Kotaku - - 4 readers - Open-world Hong Kong crime game Sleeping Dogs has gotten a "definitive edition" re-master—it's out on PC now and hits consoles next week. While the definitive edition comes with improved graphics and includes a bunch of already-released expansion missions, my favorite improvement is less noticeable.

  • The Legend Of Korra: The Kotaku Review

    The Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra universe is a tailor-made for a good video game. It boggles my mind that the much-loved series still hasn't gotten one. The Avatar series, for those not in the know, is about a world in which many people can manipulate the elements—earth, water, air, or fire—through (beautifully choreographed) martial arts.

  • Uncharted's Opening Scene, In Real Life
