Ah. The Steam Summer Sale. A time when you can earn things you'll have no use for; such as "badges," "community levels" and "credit card debt." But now Steam has introduced their most diabolical plan yet ... trading cards. And I've fallen for it ...
This is only a test.
Anyone know anywhere I can pick up a Guitar Hero guitar for the PS3 for cheap?
Who wants to fuck me?
I have a billion games. Almost literally. On the Wii, the PS3 and the 360. Anyone wanna do a temporary trade with me for the new Tomb Raider. It's not available in my area and I want to play it. Let me know. Bring down the man!
Need some input from my fellow gamers:
Kotaku ran negative stories when Sony and Microsoft added "Binding Arbitration" clauses to their user agreement. In the case of Sony, they even gave out the address to write to get out of this Binding Arbitration clause, and encouraged Kotaku users and Sony gamers to write.
I haven't gamed in 17 days. I decided to quit drinking for a month to see if I could lose some weight (so far, I've just replaced having a few beers with eating some Pringles, which isn't really working). I learned, very fast, that gaming and drinking have went hand and hand in my life for so long, that when I game I…
We got 16 inches of snow at our place on Monday and Tuesday. It was a HEAVY snow, on top of it. Shoveling was a bitch. I'm still feeling it in my lower back. It's times like these I wish I didn't have a 150 foot long driveway. It was built that way so the garage could be pushed behind the house, so it didn't block the…
I'm throwing down the gauntlet. Anyone up to the challenge? Buying gems or other cheats not allowed (seriously — who would pay for that crap?).
This is me. Fuck it. Laugh all you want. This IS Sloopydrew. I have something to say, so if you want to diminish that by claiming I'm a freak, or old, or whatever, that's your problem!
Could you techies — and I KNOW you're here — let me know where I fucked up on my first greenscreen presentation? You'll see that the picture behind me makes me look bald on the top. You'll also see that it sometimes shows up in the shine of my leather jacket. I would like to fix this. Any help would be greatly…
My pet tarantula died today (I just found her dead 30 minutes ago). She was with me from 1995-2012.
Does anyone know why the bulk of commenters on Kotaku (outside of this very forum) are now using burner accounts? I feel like I'm entering the Matrix whenever I look at a comment thread. I would say, yet again, "Please get rid of Kinja," but I feel the damage is done and good Kotaku is never to return.

Type this at Polygon:
So, anyone else here loving Resident Evil 6 (I know the consensus over on Neogaf is that it's a great game critics sorely misrepresented in their negative reviews)? I've beaten all 4 campaigns and loved each one. I've spent hours playing Mercenaries (best Mercs yet) and Agent Hunt (as the headline here said a while…
I just finished Journey for a second play through, sat through the credits this time (which I didn't the first time) and found something out — you're playing with actual people!
Wish I could have just added #speakup to the end of the post I just made in TAY to cross-post it here, but that feature's been taken away. Anyway, here's what I wrote:
The amount of comments here vs. at Polygon's TAY is stunning. 300+ posts in the past hour at Polygon. 0 posts in the past hour here. This CAN’T be what Gawker Media wanted, can it? That’s impossible for me to believe.
