Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hylian text doesn't hide any cool secrets

The Legend of Zelda takes place in the land of Hyrule, where text boxes serve as translator for us American, Japanese, et al folks. And that language shows up in the new The Breath of the Wild, but only to make mundane remarks look fantasti...   read

Xenoblade team is working on Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Forget the new "NX" hardware, Nintendo devoted just about all of its E3 to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (in order to hopefully sell the NX when it launches next March). And the huge, open-world game is taking all hands.  Mon...   read

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one hell of an adventure

When I first heard that Nintendo was planning to focus exclusively on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its E3 2016 booth, I triple-checked the wording. Only hands-on with Zelda? Really? That can't possibly be right! But it was, a...   read

Scorpion robot wrangling hands-on with Horizon Zero Dawn

I think there are some limitations to open-world games that not many things outside of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its holistic systems have managed to get right. It seems like Guerrilla Games' (Killzone) Horizon Zero Dawn has ...   read

Dead Rising 4 feels like a return to form

Dead Rising 4 is not a remake as some of us initially thought and some folks still think, but it does lean on fond memories of the 2006 original. Photojournalist Frank West is back in Willamette, Colorado following another zombie outbreak a...   read

Ghost Recon Wildlands is underwhelming

When Ubisoft announced it was taking Ghost Recon to Bolivia almost exactly one year ago, I was kind of into it. Wildlands gave me a Far Cry vibe, but on a grander scale, and with continuous cooperative play. Sure, yes, s...   read

Final Fantasy XV has won me over

A few weeks ago, I was set loose in an early section of Final Fantasy XV ahead of E3, and I still have Florence and the Machine's cover of "Stand by Me" buzzing around my head. The sweeping track isn't just intended for trailers or commerci...   read

Watch Dogs 2 looks alright, but do we really need a Watch Dogs film?

This Watch Dogs 2 mission playthrough from Ubisoft's E3 presser gives us a decent introduction to the new protagonist, Marcus Holloway, and I'm already liking him so much more than Aiden Pearce (not saying a whole lot, I know). The setting...   read

Ubisoft's Eagle Flight is probably way better than it looks

While watching Ubisoft and Oculus VR demonstrate Eagle Flight on-stage at E3, I had to keep reminding myself that these games are usually way better than they look when someone else is playing. The open-world flight game has players s...   read

Ubisoft's cocaine and American interventionism-themed Ghost Recon Wildlands launches on March 7, 2017

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, a new open-world tactical shooter from Ubisoft that imagines a world in which cartels and unproductive conflicts over illicit drugs exist, will launch on March 7, 2017. You can find screenshots and plent...   read

What does Watch Dogs 2 need to do differently?

Watch Dogs gets a bad rap. It's a game everyone seems to have an opinion about whether they've played it or not. Part of that stems from the disparity between how it looked in pre-release showings with what we ultimately got at launch. Part...   read

No Man's Sky moved to August 2016

Earlier this week, there were rumblings that No Man's Sky would miss its June 21, 2016 release date. Kotaku had it on good authority that the space exploration game might not make it out until August, much to the chagrin of eager fans. As c...   read

Review: Fallout 4: Far Harbor

Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC is having major performance issues on PS4

Bethesda's first major expansion for Fallout 4, Far Harbor, is having some real frame rate problems on the PS4. Almost the entire outdoor landmass of the new content plays below 20 FPS, like one big pre-patch Corvega factory. The culprit se...   read

Seven is an open world filled with loot and potential

I shouldn't like Seven as much as I did. The RPG comes from some of the guys behind The Witcher 3, a game that never really hooked me, and was heavily inspired by Thief, a game I'm terrible at. I don't know how they did it, but Imgn.pro and...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst: Free-running versus errand running

Red Dead Redemption 2 is huge, looks like a prequel story

Much of Red Dead Redemption's theme owes itself to its setting, not in the heyday of cowboy-ism, but nearer to the end of Manifest Destiny. It's why John Marston is working for government men in the first place. But it looks like Rockstar's...   read
