What Deathloop Gets Right And Wrong About Time Loops


Deathloop is the latest game to play around with time but it’s far from the only one. This summer’s divisive indie game 12 Minutes also centered around a repeating time loop, as have many other games, ranging from the star-charting Outer Wilds to the Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda:...

Dying Light Is Coming To Switch, Which...Hmm


Dying Light, the wildly popular 2015 game about doing awesome front flips over less-awesome zombies, is coming to Switch later this year as Dying Light: Platinum Edition. Developer Techland announced the news during the Gamescom edition of its “Dying 2 Know” video series, which aired earlier...

Goodbye Nathan, Wordsmith And Internet Whisperer


Senior reporter, Twitch expert, and longtime Steamed proprietor Nathan Grayson is leaving us today. We tried to get him to stay but after seven belly-achingly long years he decided it was time to finally go join Facebook Gaming as its new head of Good Community Vibes. Read more

Everything You Need To Know About Steam Deck


Two hours before preorders opened up for this fall’s Nintendo Switch OLED model, Valve took a break from not announcing Half-Life 3 to unveil a handheld of its own. The Steam Deck, named after Valve’s everyone-uses-it digital games storefront, allows you to play your entire Steam library on...

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...

E3 Avatar Creator: The Kotaku Review


E3 is here. Registered participants will soon be able to log in to the E3 portal to connect with developers, industry professionals, and fans. Since the event is purely digital, the ESA is encouraging participants to create avatars so exhibitors who may or may not be there and who may or may...

We're Not Expecting Much From This Year's E3


Somehow it’s June again, which means it’s almost time for E3 to start—and also, depending on who you ask (Sony, Sega, Blizzard), it’s already started. Still though, this must mean that several volcano bursts of white-hot excitement are just around the corner, right? You’d think, but after the year...

Necromunda: Hired Gun Will Be Fun Once It Runs Better


It’s hard being a mercenary in the Warhammer 40k universe. Even though you get a cool hound and can upgrade your powerful guns, everything you encounter is deadly and dangerous. Most things are covered in big spikes and probably packing some weapons too. But it’s even harder to be a hired gun...

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...

'ThAnk YoU FOr YouR PuRcHAse!' (Please Stop This, Sony)


A few days ago I grabbed the free PS Plus games on my PS5, like I usually do. And just like always, later that day I checked my phone and saw a series of emails from Sony confirming supposed purchases, which prompted a mild freakout before remembering they were just Sony confirming I “bought” games...

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...
