The Entire Call Of Duty Community Just Got Punked

I am now convinced that “female Call of Duty streamer” is the hardest job in the world. Nadia Amine is one of the fastest growing Call of Duty: Warzone streamers on Twitch, and there’s been a ton of controversy on social media about her meteoric rise. If you search her name on YouTube or Tiktok, the videos are filled with cheating accusations against her. Seemingly joining in on the train, last week, Call of Duty professional Doug “Censor” Martin, who is the number one ranked Vanguard player in the world right now, tweeted that he was going to start unmasking…

10 Video Game Rats, Ranked By How Chill They Seem

Because I live in New York City, my primary enemy is the rats. I face them daily—they run their greasy bodies around mounds of hot garbage and shit all over my apartment’s welcome mat. But via their appearances in games, I want to work on our relationship, and everyone knows that ranked slideshows are the most ideal way to do that.

Even The Morbius Memes Couldn’t Stop It From Flopping In Theaters (Again)

After weeks of Morbius memes dominating the internet, Sony had the strange idea to bring Jared Leto’s living vampire back to more than 1,000 theaters this past weekend. Maybe the PlayStation maker was hoping for Morbius to reveal itself as a The Room-style cult classic here, but the bloodsucking superhero flick bombed at the cinemas again, raking in just $85,000 at the box office on Friday. In other words, on average, each theater where it was playing pulled in just $85. It is most definitely not Morbin’ Time.

Sony Pictures declares Uncharted “a new hit movie franchise” after film generates $139 million worldwide

Despite mixed reviews, the film is doing well at the box office. Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group is rather pleased with how Uncharted is doing at the box office, so much so that its chairman and CEO Tom Rothman has called it “a new hit movie franchise.” Speaking in a company memo (thanks, Deadline), Rothman said the success “marks a great victory” for the company, as the film was the “first major production entirely shut down by the advent of Covid, yet we persevered to complete a picture the audience loves.” According to Fandango’s Erik Davis, when it comes to…

Remember When Everyone Was Convinced GTA: San Andreas Was Full of Creepy Secrets?

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas isn’t filled with ghosts, aliens, cryptids, monsters, or shadow people. But in the years after its initial 2004 release—at a time when uploading videos to the internet was hard and datamining games was less common—people believed Rockstar’s classic open-world game contained all those creepy things and more. Some went to YouTube to share their findings, theories, and “myth hunts.” Often Windows Movie Maker and the X-Files theme song were a part of these videos.

RIP To Me, The Person Writing This, A Real One

Are you allowed to call yourself a real one? No, I would argue, you are not. That pretty much immediately disqualifies you from being a real one, so I’m already off to a rough start here. But today’s my last day at Kotaku, so I consider it my solemn duty to close out my award-wanting “RIP To A Real One” article series by eulogizing an NPC who’s very important to me: myself.

Netflix Witcher and Shadow & Bone veterans plotting World Of Darkness shows and movies

Various folks behind Netflix series including The Witcher and Shadow And Bone have plans to develop films or shows set in the World Of Darkness. That’s the goth fantasy universe which houses tabletop RPGs like Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse, as well as video games including the venerated Bloodlines. They haven’t yet announced any specific project yet (nor indicated where they might find homes), but here’s my pitch: a mystery show starring a Malkavian private eye. Read more
