The RPS Bargain Bucket: Fluffy Showdown

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 2 hours 32 min ago

If it wasn’t obvious already, I have a camera. An actual camera. Not a dinky, built-into-my-phone camera but an actual camera. Obviously, plushie-related images are now going to appear in abundance. (Bargain Bucket regulars may recognize the floppy white figure in the foreground; it’s the first plushie we ever featured on this column.)

Music Video Recreates The Booze-Induced Haze Of Leisure Suit Larry

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 16:00

Leisure Suit Larry may not have exactly stood the test of time in terms of sheer staying power, but the series of famously salacious adventure games will always be remembered fondly for being some of the first major titles to broach topics like sex and human intimacy on their own sloppy terms. Norwegian DJ Todd Terje captures Larry's sense of hazy sex-crazed desperation in the new music video for his song "Leisure Suit Treben," which Noisey describes as "an exploration in subjectivity and a clever way to represent what it's like to feel really drunk."

Finally, a comic that gets sex right.

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 15:30

Finally, a comic that gets sex right. If you read comics, you probably know writer Matt Fraction. He's widely (and rightly) considered one of the best writers in the business, from Casanova to Hawkeye to other great stuff . Wired's got a really cool new profile of him, all about his latest comic Sex Criminals. A lot of what he's saying about sex and comics could just as easily be said about sex and video games.

​A Health Game That Claims It'll Improve Your Vision

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 14:30

For a game that says it'll make your eyeballs work better, Ultimeyes isn't exactly a work of art. It's a work of science, though, one that presents a series of eye-training challenges in game-like form. After playing it a few times this week, I feel like it might actually work.

Help A Bunny From The Future Become Mayor By Murdering His Enemies

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:30

Spoiler: the stupid joke-gimmick glasses I'm wearing at the beginning of this video don't do anything to make Not a Hero look any cooler. That's okay, though. The new over-the-top action game doesn't need help looking cool, because it happens in 2.25D.

The Weird U.S. Government Projects That Have Been Named BATMAN

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:20

The Golden Age Of JRPGs

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 12:00

Last weekend at PAX East, I moderated a panel called "The Golden Age Of RPGs." This was quite fun, mostly because we spent the whole time yelling at Destructoid editor Dale North for not liking Final Fantasy IX. (I mean... come on.)

Kotaku - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 10:43

When Aliens: Colonial Marines co-developer TimeGate Studios shut down , my first concern was for the gorgeously blocky shooter the developer had announced just a month prior. Thankfully Atari thought Minimal was too pretty to die as well.
