Nalezeno "ash parrish": 25

Isaiah Colbert To Kotaku Confirmed!


It feels like yesterday. I was in a Columbia College Chicago classroom during the “before times” of Covid-19 showing off my now-boss Patricia Hernandez’s Life Is Strange 2 article to a room full of journalism students who no doubt will be future legacy media reporters. I chose that article because...

Destiny 2 Latest Game To Boldly Announce Gargantuan Gal


Today, Bungie proudly joins the ranks of Capcom, FromSoftware, and other lovers of big ladies everywhere. The upcoming Destiny 2 expansion stars the Hive Witch Savathun, a long-teased major villain from the part of the lore I actually know about (ask me anything about sword logic), and Bungie...

Video Games Are Part Of Climate Change, Too


It’s hot! I don’t just mean in the sense that I am sweating while my window AC unit does its best to gasp cool air into my apartment; I mean that it’s historically hot. Last month was the warmest June ever in North America. In honor of the increasingly agonizing heat death of the planet, this...

PSA: Sonic Mania Is Free Right Now


In case the kick-ass concert didn’t make it clear, it’s Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th birthday, and how better to celebrate than with a copy of the game that Kotaku ranked the second-best Sonic game of all time? The Epic Games Store is giving away copies of Sonic Mania for free but you gotta...

All-Digital E3 Was A Mess


Another E3 has come and gone. This year’s multi-day commercial for upcoming video games sure...happened. Was it terribly exciting? No, not that we were expecting it to be. Was it downright terrible? Also no. But in failing to find its footing on an all-digital stage, E3 2021 ended up being...

E3 2021: 20 Games Missing From The Show


Silence screams volumes. Over the past five days, video game publishers have shouted announcements for the biggest games from the rooftops. But that chorus has been drowned out by the far more deafening din of what wasn’t announced at E3 2021.Read more

Mass Effect Is Back, But It Seems Like Morality Meters Are Gone For Good


Will you save the orphans or eat them? Will you blow up the planet or give it renewable energy and free healthcare? Will you hug Leonardo Da Vinci or let his outstretched arms wither? For a minute there, it felt like games were characterized by binary choices like these—even if their prevalence...

Half-Life: Alyx Almost Had Enemies Who Reacted When You Flipped Them Off


Hands. You wouldn’t have human civilization without them, meaning you wouldn’t have video games, either. Or, like, houses. But even though hands are front and center in many games, we don’t talk about them all that often. On this week’s episode of Splitscreen, we stop keeping hands at arm’s length....

F*ck, Marry, Kill: Mass Effect Party Member Edition


It certainly says something about the video game industry that the most anticipated release of the year so far is a remaster of a sci-fi RPG trilogy from a decade ago. Mass Effect has some memorable characters—and a lot of less memorable ones, a fact that many people have fittingly forgotten....

Resident Evil Village's Lady Dimitrescu Was Worth The Wait


After the internet spent months pining and meme-ing, she’s finally here: Lady Dimitrescu—and also Resident Evil Village, I guess. But was she (and, I suppose, the game) worth all the hype and marketing-driven hoopla? On this week’s village- (and Village-) themed episode of Splitscreen, we find...

Sometimes You Just Have To Let Backlog Games Go


Most of us will probably never play every game we own right now, let alone all the others we’ll buy or download in the future. In that sense, backlogs are like the universe: infinitely expanding and confounding to physicists. Sometimes you just have to make peace—or force yourself to make...

Why Video Game Loot Is So Addictive, According To The Creators Of Diablo


Colors mean different things to different people, but very specific colors mean the exact same thing to everybody who plays video games. You know the ones: gray, green, blue, purple, and gold. You covet the latter and revile the former. Loot is a universal language at this point, but it wasn’t...

In 2007, Video Game Memes Took A Dark Turn


Memes. These days, they’re everywhere. They are the pillars upon which internet culture—and by extension, pop culture—stands. But once upon a time, memes dwelled in the internet’s dankest sewers, traded in the darkness by geeks, nerds, and outcasts. On this week’s Splitscreen podcast, we examine...

Single-Player Games Are Finally Making A Comeback, Sort Of


Once upon a time, Shigeru Miyamoto famously said, “A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever.” It’s a statement that felt like it would never fall out of fashion, until it did. Modern games are never finished. Bad games become good. Good games become bad. Games of all stripes...
