Football: The Kotaku Review Football: The Kotaku Review

If Football—that is, the American National Football League football—used the same naming scheme as “Dungeons & Dragons,” we’d call it “Beer Commercials & Cheerleaders.”

Altered Carbon Is Solid Cyberpunk, But It's Not Netflix's Game of Thrones Altered Carbon Is Solid Cyberpunk, But It's Not Netflix's Game of Thrones

Depending on who you ask, Altered Carbon is either Netflix’s answer to Game of Thrones, or a Blade Runner knockoff. But the truth is, it’s neither. It’s an entertaining show that, unfortunately, never manages to break out and become that genre-spanning hit Netflix was surely hoping for. Cyberpunk fans will love it,…

DJI's New Osmo Gimbal Is the Rare Phone Accessory That's Actually Worth It DJI's New Osmo Gimbal Is the Rare Phone Accessory That's Actually Worth It

Running around the office with the DJI Osmo Mobile 2, I got a lot of questions. Specifically I got exactly two questions repeatedly. The first was about what I was holding. Each time, I explained that the weird selfie stick-like contraption I’d put my phone in was a mechanized gimbal that automatically stabilizes my…

Celeste: The Kotaku Review Celeste: The Kotaku Review

Celeste is pure. Each room offers new challenges, but the solution is always the same: jump. Jumping is remixed in dozens of different, exciting ways. Celeste is the very soul of simplicity, and that’s what makes it such a beautiful game.

Sony A7R III Review: The New King of Mirrorless Cameras Sony A7R III Review: The New King of Mirrorless Cameras

For three years now I’ve been using the Sony A7S as my primary camera. It’s compact and it’s incredible in low-light, but in certain regards the camera is starting to show its age and doesn’t really fit all my needs: It’s limited to 12-megapixel photos, and it can’t shoot 4K video without an external recorder. As…

Razer's Powerhouse Phone for Gamers Is Delightfully Different Razer's Powerhouse Phone for Gamers Is Delightfully Different

While its original mission was to make high-end gaming mice, Razer’s line of products has grown over the years to include everything from keyboards and fitness bands to entire desktops, laptops, and pretty much anything else the company could put RGB lighting in. However, up until now, there was one glaring hole in…

GoPro's Hero6 Is Still the King of Action Cameras GoPro's Hero6 Is Still the King of Action Cameras

GoPro has been the leader on action cameras from the very beginning, and its brand has attained a kind of Xerox-like omnipotence—despite the company’s ongoing struggles in recent years. Amongst GoPro’s problems is the difficulty in making the improvements to its line look like anything more than iterations. With its…

Metroid Prime: The Kotaku Review Metroid Prime: The Kotaku Review

When she shoots, Samus Aran doesn’t miss. That’s one of the fundamental truths of the original Metroid Prime, the first-person sci-fi game that came out on the Nintendo GameCube in 2002. You lock her gun onto a target and fire. She hits it every time.

Star Wars: Battlefront II: The Kotaku Review Star Wars: Battlefront II: The Kotaku Review

Star Wars: Battlefront II frustrates me in ways I never knew I could be frustrated. It is both a lovingly crafted companion to the films and a tangled mess of corporate meddling. There is a strong heart at the center but finding it means peeling back layers of unnecessary and infuriating nonsense.

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro Is a Valiant Attempt to Slay the iPhone With AI Smarts Huawei's Mate 10 Pro Is a Valiant Attempt to Slay the iPhone With AI Smarts

A few months ago, Huawei passed Apple to become the second largest smartphone maker in the world, (Samsung’s number one). Yet you don’t see Huawei ads on TV in the United States, and its phones are seldom sold in any of the big carrier stores. Even when they are, they are often hidden behind a bigger brands like on…

This Little Box Can Make Even the Junkiest Laptop a Gaming PC This Little Box Can Make Even the Junkiest Laptop a Gaming PC

You are probably surrounded by more computers than you know what to do with, whether it’s the phone in your pocket, the old clunker at home, or the sleek little ultraportable you got from work. And while they are more than enough for everyday tasks, when it comes to real graphics prowess, I’m talking about serious…

The New Star Wars AR Game Is Clunky, Cool, Way Too Expensive  The New Star Wars AR Game Is Clunky, Cool, Way Too Expensive 

The success of any AR game depends entirely on immersion: whether the player’s having so much they forget how massively dorky they look with a cafeteria tray stuck to their their face. Disney’s Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, a $200 standalone AR machine made in collaboration with Lenovo, succeeds at this in fits and…

Super Mario Odyssey: The Kotaku Review Super Mario Odyssey: The Kotaku Review

For Mario, 3D used to mean freedom. In 1996, Super Mario 64 broke Nintendo’s mascot from the shackles of having to run in a straight line, letting the player choose their own path. But for quite some time now—no matter how 3D the graphics may have been—Mario’s adventures have reverted back to running on a straight…

Sega Genesis Flashback HD: The Kotaku Review Sega Genesis Flashback HD: The Kotaku Review

Let’s get the comparison we have to make out of the way: No, the Genesis Flashback isn’t as amazing as the SNES Classic. But it’s still pretty good, if you like the games.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War: The Kotaku Review Middle-earth: Shadow of War: The Kotaku Review

When Shadow of Mordor released in 2014, its “nemesis system” was brilliant enough that many people hoped it would define a new generation of games. Years later, that vision of industry-wide character hierarchies that learn, evolve, and remember the player never came to pass. Shadow of War, the follow-up, further…

Downsizing Is a Clever Big-Idea Science-Fiction Comedy With A Glaringly Terrible Flaw Downsizing Is a Clever Big-Idea Science-Fiction Comedy With A Glaringly Terrible Flaw

In Alexander Payne’s new movie, a dainty Easy Bake Oven bell-chime signals the completion of the cellular reduction process. People who were normal-sized adults are now only inches tall, gently lifted off their beds with implements that look like spatulas. The moment is both cute and terrifying at the same time, much…

The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame: The Kotaku Review The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame: The Kotaku Review

The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame is short and a little rough, but a dynamic new combat system and a couple surprising tweaks to aging mechanics make it one of the most exciting new Lego games in years.

Destiny 2: The Kotaku Review Destiny 2: The Kotaku Review

As I struggle to fall asleep after a night of Destiny 2, the game keeps running through my mind. It’s like getting a song stuck in my head: I see the flash of combat and feel the rumbling controller in my hand. But I rarely hear the sounds of battle. Instead, I hear voices.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: The Kotaku Review Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: The Kotaku Review

Mario’s power as an icon is defined by his versatility. The plumber doesn’t just jump: he fights, he drives, he plays sports, he parties. He does it all, really, without ever looking out of place. And yet earlier in the year, the announcement of a Mario and Rabbids mash-up was met by some skepticism on the internet.…

Remember When Google Tango Seemed Like a Sick Idea? Remember When Google Tango Seemed Like a Sick Idea?

Every time a new platform comes out, the gadget world runs headfirst into a vicious Catch-22: How do you get people to adopt new technology when there isn’t any content, and if there isn’t anyone using the tech, how do you convince developers to make content for that platform? Recently, we’ve seen this situation…
