Tim Rogers's posts - English uPOST

You can watch me play Square Enix’s new Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy for an hour here (or on YouTube!) and you can read Kotaku’s Michael Fahey’s impressions here. I liked it on the Wii, and I like it even more (with new core features) on the Nintendo Switch!

I Read 4,000 YouTube Comments About Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

I am so excited about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that I asked not to play it for work. I need to play it at home, in the dark, devoid of human contact. So for today’s video, I did the most unreasonable alternative I could think of: I read thousands of YouTube comments on all the trailers and gameplay videos released to…

Watch Us Enjoy Thirty Minutes Of Yoshi's Crafted World

Yoshi’s Crafted World is cute, fun, and either childish or relaxing, depending on your mood. So come chill and childishly relax with Stephen Totilo and I as we plunk around a bunch of levels, talk about how great Yoshi’s Island is, wonder why Nintendo decided to immediately send Yoshi games back to preschool after …

I (Tim Rogers) am playing One Piece: World Seeker over on our Twitch channel. I don’t exactly need a video game to role-play a skinny man with long rubbery arms, though I figure, why not, while I have the expertise? Scream at me in the chat!

Stop Calling Games Guilty Pleasures

The newly released Devil May Cry 5 inspired Tim and I to talk about the idea of games that some might consider “guilty pleasures” and why sometimes that can be a little misguided. I’m totally fine with liking things that don’t necessarily qualify as artistic masterpieces and delving into what makes “trashier” games so…

I (Tim Rogers) love Watch Dogs. I consider it The Most Interesting Game of this console generation, for complex reasons. Yet I have not played Watch Dogs 2. Well, it was on sale. Who watches the Dog Watchers? You, if you click here!

Devil May Cry 5 Is The Holy Grail Of Trash

Devil May Cry 5 is the sort of video game where it’s impossible to think of a single moment my mom wouldn’t shake her head at as she folded laundry in the basement circa 1988. And that will never stop me from absolutely loving it. Inspired by the beautiful friction experience that is this game, I made a video about…

I’m continuing my playthrough of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky over on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. At this rate, it should take us only 14 million more years to finish the game. Come yell at me!

Seriously, Capcom, is this devil ever going to cry, or not? Since 2001 they’ve been refusing to answer the possibility. In wild anticipation of Devil May Cry 5, I (Tim Rogers) am revisiting the entire series in my personal time. You can intrude on that personal time live on our Twitch channel, right the heck now.

We Dissected Super Mario Maker 2's Trailer With The Help Of An Expert

I estimate I spent around 800 hours playing Super Mario Maker on the Wii U. My friend (and professional Super Mario speedrunner) GrandPOOBear, however, has spent 5,000 hours. I invited him to dissect the Super Mario Maker 2 trailer with me.

10 Reasons You Might Actually Like Crackdown 3 (Despite The Mediocre Reviews)

Crackdown 3 is available soon! I love it. Then again, I have complicated tastes. I dare not be so bold as to say you will also like it. So with this video, allow me to spell out 10 reasons you might like it. If there were an eleventh reason, that’d be “because you’re me.”

We’re streaming Crackdown 3 with Terry Crews! No, uh, not the real guy. The digital version of him. Sorry for the confusion. Uh, come jump in the chat and yell at me (Tim Rogers) over on our Twitch channel.

Just Over Half Of Kingdom Hearts III's Disney Voice Actors Are The Real Thing

Kingdom Hearts III has a lot of Disney characters in it. It also has a lot of original characters in it. In the interest of browsing IMDB while giving my calculator something to do, I determined exactly what percentage of Kingdom Hearts III’s voice cast are “authentic” Disney voice actors.

The First Crackdown Still Makes Me Scream

On the occasion of Crackdown 3 releasing just eleven days from today, I revisited the first Crackdown. I loved it in 2007, and it pleases me to report that I still love it today. In this video, I ruminate on my enjoyment of it and philosophize about why it might have failed to become Microsoft’s “GTA Killer.”

Tips For Playing Kingdom Hearts III

I played all the way through Kingdom Hearts III. I played it extremely underleveled. I did this because I love a challenge and because I was in a hurry. I also did this for you: my struggle forced me to play the game well. That means, buddy, I got tips.

Me (Tim Rogers) and Paul are going to tear through Toy Story world in Kingdom Hearts III over on our Twitch channel. We will skip all cutscenes and not discuss spoilers! Come yell at Woody and Buzz with us in the chat!

The Best Kingdom Hearts Lore Explainer Is Inside Kingdom Hearts III The Best Kingdom Hearts Lore Explainer Is Inside Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts III is the biggest, fanciest entry yet in the long-running series, and it’s out tomorrow. Maybe you haven’t done your homework on the series plot. That’s understandable, because there’s a lot of plot. Well, the game just so happens to include a perfect lore explainer that clocks in at just 19 minutes…

Kingdom Hearts III: The Kotaku Review

Early in Kingdom Hearts III, series primary protagonist Sora returns to his spaceship with his Duck Dad Donald and his Dog Dad Goofy. This nuclear family sits in silence and ponders a crisis.

We played Kingdom Hearts III live on our Twitch channel earlier today. We played on an Xbox One X and skipped all the cutscenes. Here’s two hours of sweet 60fps battle action in Hercules town!

Wow! We’re streaming Kingdom Hearts III. We’re going to play the very first action segment. We will skip all the cutscenes. So if you’re not scared of level-design-related spoilers, come yell at Goofy and Donald with us!
