PlayStation TV: The Kotaku Review

"What do you want the PlayStation TV to do for you?" That's an important question when considering purchasing Sony's new microconsole. A more important question might be "Do you know what the PlayStation TV is?" » 10/20/14 9:06am Yesterday 9:06am

Destiny's Hardest Boss, Killed In Under 20 Seconds

Sure, you can glitch Atheon off the cliff by yourself with a few grenades, but apparently even that isn't as fast as four players wailing on him with exotic rocket launchers. Also, clips from World of Warcraft, Alien: Isolation, Halo 2 and more! » 10/17/14 2:43pm Friday 2:43pm

Almost A Year Later, Pokémon X & Y's Ghost Girl Is Still A Mystery

Pokémon X & Y are rather happy-go-lucky games—that is, with the exception of a mysterious ghost girl that managed to freak players out last November. You'd think that by now, almost a year after her discovery, we'd know what her deal is...but no. She's still somewhat of an enigma. » 10/15/14 3:11pm Wednesday 3:11pm

One Of The Worst Pokémon Games Is Getting Remade, And It Looks Good

If we absolutely had to pick the worst Pokémon game, I wouldn't blame anyone for putting Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire high on the list. Don't get me wrong—I love those games to death, they defined a chunk of my childhood.

The Fatal Frame Movie is an Atmospheric Masterpiece

Japanese horror game series Fatal Frame is one of my personal favorites. So despite disliking horror movies in general, I went to see the new Fatal Frame live-action theatrical film. And while never scream-inducingly scary, its amazing atmosphere makes it one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen. » 10/14/14 9:55am 10/14/14 9:55am

Across the ocean there is a magical land where some games debut months or even years before they do in the West—or sometimes never at all. But how do you get your hands on one of these mythical games from the Land of the Rising Sun? Kotaku East is here to help. » 10/14/14 9:55am 10/14/14 9:55am

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: The Kotaku Review

Borderlands is an island. In its center, there's a breezy mix of ridiculous firefights and even nuttier guns. Surrounding it, however, is an ocean of tedium—little inconveniences that have plagued the series since its inception. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel does only the bare minimum of work to fix that. » 10/13/14 10:25pm 10/13/14 10:25pm

​Should You Get Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition? Depends.

The unexpectedly great 2012 open-world game Sleeping Dogs has gotten a remastered "definitive edition" for new-gen consoles and PC. Is this new version of an old game worth the price of admission? It depends. » 10/13/14 4:32pm 10/13/14 4:32pm
