We've seen the character creation system , as well as some of the combat featured in Black Desert , a stunning-looking Korean MMO. But the game also features stuff you can do during your downtime—and it looks like the developers are putting care into small details.Read more...

Today Nintendo unveiled Tomodachi Life, a game that our own Jason Schreier described as "Animal Crossing on Acid ". I'm inclined to agree. That trailer was one of the weirdest things I've ever seen come out of Nintendo, complete with avatars of current executives and luminaries acting bonkers.Read more...

Imaging a Pokémon AR game in which you had to travel around the world to catch Pokémon and visit pre-set locations to take part in Gym battles and tournaments. Would definitely help to get kids outside and moving about.

Unsurprising given its success, Minecraft has, let's say, inspired a whole range of new games. Some, like Terraria, have been pretty good. Others, like the endless sea of shameless clones, have been terrible. At first Planets³ sounds like the latter.Read more...

As another Steam Holiday Sale comes to a close, I have spent roughly $100 to purchase 22 games. In the past 2 months I have picked up 3 Humble Bundles. Not a month ago I spent around $50 on 11 games in the Steam Fall Sale. By the time the next Steam Holiday Sale rolls into town I will be lucky if I have played half of these games. I have a problem. I am a Compulsive Collector. And after 1,400 gamers took my recent survey on their game-buying habits, I know that I am not alone.Read more...

Let me tell you about a moment in world five of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It's a little late in the game, but it's oh so typical (and not a spoiler, unless you count the placement of platforms as a spoiler). How you feel about this moment will determine how you feel about this game.Read more...

What a shitty review.
Francis
The overall recommendation that you should play it is not being questioned, Stephen is only defending the minute details of his experience. Yes I suppose there is universal standard, but it's just is there anything interesting in this game that outweighs the frustrating/boring parts and would the average reader feel the same way. I don't see why it needs to be any more specific than that.

Goat Simulator wasn't meant to be a game played by the public—it was just the product of a game jam where the devs were playing around with programming stuff. But when the internet saw footage of the game, almost everyone agreed: we need to have a game that lets us mess everything up as a goat. Because CHAOS REIGNS.Read more...

Most people probably don't consider themselves early adopters unless they're really excited about that newest black box that lets you play games. Dedicated fans, gadget enthusiasts, that kinda thing. But there are other considerations, too. Like, how many games are out for the thing? How much do they cost? How much time can you spend playing said games? Kotaku reader and TAY contributor Raw Danger tackles this question below with some breakdowns for the most current hardware.Read more...

Nintendo's online store isn't working for many gamers at the moment—not on Wii U or 3DS—making it essentially impossible to use many of the systems' core online services. So this is why I couldn't update the Netflix app on my parents' Wii yesterday! And it's why a lot of Nintendo gamers are pulling their hair out now.Read more...
