Star Wars: Jedi Academy Has Secret Crossplay, And PC Players Are Killing Switch Users

Star Wars: Jedi Academy, released back in 2003 on the PC and Xbox, has only just been ported to the Nintendo Switch. And, uh, somehow PC players have been able to connect to console multiplayer servers.

As PC Gamer report, PC players have been able to connect directly to the IP of the servers being used for the Switch version, and with it being the same game on both platforms, have been able...

I'm Driving Myself Crazy Trying To Name My Animal Crossing Island

I'm Driving Myself Crazy Trying To Name My Animal Crossing Island
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

It is important, in these trying times, to take it easy on yourself. That self-critical voice constantly berating you in your head? Turn it down to a whisper. Unfortunately, I am a gigantic dummy incapable of following my own advice. Case in point: I’ve spent the better part of three days (and...

Good Job! Turns Office Nepotism Into Something More Fun

Good Job! Turns Office Nepotism Into Something More Fun

I haven’t been into the office in weeks. If your job can be done from home, and your employer isn’t a heartless monster, you probably haven’t either. Good Job!’s workplace carnage is a perfect substitute. I only wish every office was this much fun.

Developed by Dutch game studio Paladin and published by Nintendo, Good Job! was announced during the company’s surprise mini-Direct earlier today ...

It Sucks Being Player 2 In Animal Crossing

It Sucks Being Player 2 In Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is all about working together and building a sense of community, but if you’re not the primary player account on the game, it’s a lot harder to participate.

New Horizons lets you make one island per Switch, and up to eight players can live on it together. But only one of those players can be what Nintendo calls “first resident,” meaning the player who originally...

You Can Poop In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

You Can Poop In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing has always let you sit on its decorative toilets, but in New Horizons they’ve suddenly become a more practical consideration. Because you can poop on them.

If you just sit on a toilet, under regular circumstances, it’s the same as it’s always been. You sit there, you’re sitting on a toilet, and even though there’s a flush noise when you get off it may as well be a park bench or...

Bloodroots Is A Western Brawler Where Everything Is Your Weapon

Bloodroots Is A Western Brawler Where Everything Is Your Weapon

I can’t remember the last time I hooted and/or hollered at a video game as much as I did during the first 15 minutes of Bloodroots.

It’s a fast, stylish brawler with one very cool hook: you don’t have a single weapon, you have everything. The game’s world is littered with swords, hammers and guns, sure, but there are also countless pieces of junk lying around that work just as well, from...

Hands On: Animal Crossing: New Horizons Will Put You Right To Work

Hands On: Animal Crossing: New Horizons Will Put You Right To Work

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a hard game to demo, but Nintendo invited me to try to do it anyway last weekend at PAX East. I came away from my brief trip to its deserted island impressed by how pretty everything looked and eager to continue toiling away on its beaches, in its fields, and at its crafting bench, creating my own private getaway from the modern world.

In a departure from...

Tips For Playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Cindered Shadows

Tips For Playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Cindered Shadows

Last week, Fire Emblem: Three Houses received a shiny new piece of DLC. Unlike the previous “waves,” it’s not just a handful of new quests and costumes and other small-scale additions. This DLC, called Cindered Shadows, is a fully contained standalone campaign , wherein Byleth, Claude, Edelgard, Hilda, and some other less-cool students explore a mysterious subterranean area called Abyss.

Wide Ocean Big Jacket, A Chill Game About Camping, Is The Perfect Length

Wide Ocean Big Jacket, A Chill Game About Camping, Is The Perfect Length

As a kid, I never liked camping. I went to a multitude of Boy Scout and church camps, but I could never escape an overriding feeling of anxiety, like the trees were going to close in and suffocate me with their bristly branches. Turns out, I was just doing it wrong. The camping trips I went on as a kid were all structure, exasperating obstacle courses of planned activities and curfews. Good...

New Update Makes Power Rangers More Like A Real Fighting Game

New Update Makes Power Rangers More Like A Real Fighting Game

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is getting a new update today that adds online lobbies and a spectator mode to make it play more like a full-fledged fighting game.

The online lobbies will hold up to eight players and let them fight across four separate matches simultaneously. As people finish, they can then spectate the remaining matches rather than be stuck waiting until the next group of...

The Wii U Games That Still Need To Come To Switch

The Wii U Games That Still Need To Come To Switch

With Platinum Games bringing The Wonderful 101 to Switch via a Kickstarter campaign, that’s one more former Wii U exclusive that’s being moved to Nintendo’s newer, much more successful console. As of now, there are a few major games still stuck on the Wii U, but only a few that will likely end up on Switch.

It makes sense that Nintendo would want to port as many of its Wii U games as possible...

Nintendo Switch Hacker Busted, Also Pleads Guilty To Child Pornography Charges

21 year-old Ryan Hernandez pleaded guilty last week to charges related to the 2016 theft of “confidential Nintendo files related to its consoles and games.” When his home was raided by the FBI last year, though, they also found “more than one thousand videos and images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”

Nintendo Says No New Switch Models Planned For 2020

Nintendo Says No New Switch Models Planned For 2020

Despite already announcing and releasing a new Switch model in 2019 , rumors that Nintendo would release another variant of its latest console—a beefier, fancier “Pro” version—have refused to go away. So Nintendo has come out and just flat out said it: There are no new Switch models coming. At least in 2020.

No doubt keen to have people buy their consoles now instead of holding out for some...

Nintendo Is Releasing An Animal Crossing Switch, And It Is Beautiful

Nintendo Is Releasing An Animal Crossing Switch, And It Is Beautiful

To tie in with the release of New Horizons, Nintendo is releasing this new Animal Crossing-themed Switch console in March that has very strong animal vacation vibes.

From the Nooks on the dock to the ocean-colored Joy-Cons, this is a beautiful console.

There’s also an Animal Crossing motif on the back of the Switch itself.

There’s even a matching carry case (that’s sold separately).

It goes...
