New trailer for Star Citizen shows our space dreams come true

Star Citizen's new trailer claims all the footage is taken from the in-game engine, no pre-renderings, but it is so amazing, so detailed and beautiful, so impossibly complex, that I just can't believe it. If it is really this way, I will buy a PC, an Oculus Rift, and disappear forever from the face of the Earth. It is… » 12/23/14 6:47am 12/23/14 6:47am

I would gladly pay real money for this fake retro Kill Bill game

I'm ready to pay my $2.99 for this Kill Bill game, which looks like a Kung-Fu Master/Shinobi hybrid. Heck, I would pay $2.99 for Volume 1 and $2.99 for Volume 2. Too bad we can't: It's just one of those videos for imaginary 8-bit retro arcade games by those cockteases at Cinefix. Bastards. Watch, want, and welp. » 6/24/14 5:10pm 6/24/14 5:10pm

But this Hobbit game looks great. So good that it makes me hate the Cinefix guys for making these awesome videos without actually… » 4/01/14 3:46pm 4/01/14 3:46pm

The only better thing than a giant Lego spaceship is a real spaceship

My favorite Lego constructions are spaceships—precise models that fire my imagination better than any illustration. The 7-foot-long Lego UNSC Spirit of Fire by Mark Kelso is an example of the perfect Lego spaceship. The detail in this thing is absolutely insane. I'm not surprised that it took four (FOUR!) years to… » 2/03/14 11:18pm 2/03/14 11:18pm

9 facts about the Olympics that you probably don't know

The Olympics are coming! The Olympics are coming! And even if it's only the Winter Olympics, it's still fun to see countries who know nothing about each other put on colorful spandex to beat each other up for medals. But did you know that the gold medal is actually made from silver? Or that the bronze medal is only… » 2/03/14 9:13pm 2/03/14 9:13pm

Review: Grand Theft Auto V is a crime simulation masterpiece

Finally, Grand Theft Auto V is here. The Kotaku review says that this crime simulation game set in a fictionalized Los Angeles is truly amazing. The realism is exquisitely gritty, the attention to detail staggering, and the story is a roller coaster. Kids, remember that pretending to be a criminal is a lot of fun… » 9/16/13 12:14pm 9/16/13 12:14pm
