Kotaku is about seeing games differently: a mix of original reporting, opinion, humour, and game culture. Live since April 2014, Kotaku UK is Kotaku with a British twist, combining syndicated posts from the US site with original features and news from our UK team. Here’s where to find all our UK-created news and features.
Making life one hell of a whole lot easier, Spike is streaming all the E3 shows including Microsoft, EA, Ubi, and Sony, plus other stuff in-between. If you've got the staying power and the snacks there's 12 hours of unbroken gaming ahead of you. God help us all.
You fools, you'll kill us all! Wait, Pac-Man? Oh, carry on then. A team at Stanford Bioengineering's Riedel-Kruse Lab have mixed digital overlays and electrically controlled microorganisms to make playable games.
It's got your back, apparently. Mike Bithell's snuck out a live action teaser for Volume, building on the updated Robin Hood theme with Guy Of Gisborne re-imagined as a sinister, not-at-all-murdery arms corporation.
Afternoon everyone. Time for a little streaming. This week I'm starting with Murdered Soul Suspect which Yannick wasn't exactly a fan off, so lets see how it goes. We can always swap to Watch Dogs or something else later.
I'm not sure if this is 'Nintendo in new IP shocker' or 'Nintendo make another version of an old game'. Either way here's an early E3 pic allegedly showing Mario Maker. And because I'm the kind of person that performs error level image analysis I say it's legit.
PC Gamer has a monster rig costing £6000. In it there's an Intel Core i7-4960X, 64GB RAM and four GTX Titans in quad-SLI. Running Watch Dogs at max settings and 1920x1080 it reached, "framerates fluctuating from the high 30s to the low 50s". What hope is there for mortal man?
It says this is for children but I say BACK OFF KID: it's my go first. Modio is an amazing app that lets you design toys on your iPad and then make the parts via a 3D printer. This video's the coolest thing I've seen so far today.
I can't work out whether this is the best or worst thing ever. I completely missed it when it launched earlier in the year on PC but now it's just been announced for PS4 and this trailer... leaves an impression. I still haven't decided what kind.
That's tomorrow, Saturday the 7th of June in case you're finding this in the future (did we beat the robots?). The deal's to celebrate Amazon Prime Instant Video coming to Xbox Silver and knocks the £389 bundle down to to £349.
