Kotaku was my first job out of college. I lived and breathed this site for nearly six years. I grew up here. Kotaku changed my life.
The upcoming Donkey Kong DLC for Mario + Rabbids looks like a ton of fun. DK has some cool abilities, like throwing cover. Looks meaty, too: the DLC will add an entire island. No release date yet.
Right now, everyone in Fortnite is learning how to use the jetpack the hard way. Turns out, you can’t just fly forever. Eventually, the jetpack overheats and you will fall to your doom.
The wait is over: the much-anticipated jetpack has finally arrived in the 4.2 Fortnite update. It is an item unlike any other in the game, with Epic creating an entirely new gear type called “backpacks.”
Pokémon Go will get Sun and Moon’s Alolan forms, Niantic announced today. No release date yet, but the devs say you can expect an update holding the new variety of monsters within the next couple of weeks.
While the original 151 Pokémon are now world-famous, not every monster idea that Game Freak at the time made the cut. Earlier this week, we got a look at some of the creatures that never made it into the game, and fans are giving the designs a new life.
Thank god for Atlus, which continues to give me reasons to use my 3DS. Lately I’ve been obsessively playing Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, a remake of the 2010 dungeon crawler that is kinda what would happen if you combined the sci-fi mystery Annihilation with a ton of demons. The game is a great pick-up…
Seemingly every big Pokémon game leaks ahead of time, and a new generation of entries may follow suit. Over the last few days, a series of online posts purporting knowledge of the next major pocket monsters game have caught fire within the Pokémon community. If real, these leaks promise Pokémon games that are…
Fortnite’s recent, big comet event was the start of something new for the cheery battle royale game. Nowadays, you don’t need to wait around for a special occasion to see the map change. Every update is an opportunity to see something different.
The excellent Fortnite Thanos event ends on May 15th, Epic Games announced. If you haven’t terrorized your rivals with the Infinity Gauntlet yet, you have one more day to do so!
If you’ve tuned into a Tyler “Ninja” Blevins livestream lately, you’ve probably noticed that things sound a little different now. Twitch’s biggest star is trying to make his entertainment more family-friendly, and some fans aren’t taking it very well.
Don’t let his superpowers fool you: Thanos’ arrival in Fortnite is surprisingly silly. Players are taking advantage of Thanos in the best ways, or using Thanos to spread cheer. Given that Thanos is supposed to be a homicidal villain, seeing him in Fortnite’s ridiculous world has been amazing.
The hottest game in the world has teamed up with one of the biggest movie franchises around, and while it’s technically a marketing ploy, damn if it’s not a good one. This is the most fun I’ve ever had with Fortnite.
When I was younger, I liked to overtrain my Pokémon until they stopped listening to my every command. You could do this in older games and risk the consequences. I found it thrilling to know that, at any moment, maybe in a crucial battle, my Pokémon might not do as I say. Now that I’m the proud owner of four pets, I…
Fortnite’s next big limited event will feature a Marvel villain that will change the way the game works. Here’s what to expect.
You’ve probably heard about how a comet hit the Fortnite map by now. There’s a reason so many people were transfixed by this cosmic encounter: developer Epic made it feel like an event, worthy of wonder in the same way a real-world solar eclipse would be.
