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.
