It's been a crazy week for us here at Kotaku HQ - we're currently moving offices, packing up all our stuff before moving to our totally swell new digs up at Circular Quay. It's also been a crazy week here on the site itself - and that's thanks to you guys.
Firstly, I'd like to say thanks to everyone for supporting the Game Jam feature, and having a read. Hope you all enjoyed it. Game Jam is an awesome event for the local Australian dev community, and I was really proud to watch and, in my own way, be a part of it.
There are a couple of people I want to shout out – FatShady for continuing to help out all the people he's dragged in to playing that brutal, sado-masochistic, torturous excuse for a game you call Trials HD. Once things have settled down over here next week I want to start up some sort of regular gaming competition that happens over the weekend – if you guys are interested – and the first game we use will probably be Trials HD.
I also want to draw attention to 'Plainview'. I have absolutely no idea who this guy is, but his posts have been… how can I put this – interesting. Is this an alias? Who the hell is this guy! All I can say is, it has been… interesting reading your posts over the last week! Keep up the 'good' work!
Finally, the winner of this week's Community Kudos is a deserving one. He has come close a number of times, and after a nomination from one of the pillars of the Kotaku community, I thought it would be fitting to reward one of the guys who has truly kept the Kotaku comments rolling in over the past couple of weeks.
That man is Jimu Hsien. I can't think of a single story published this week that Jimu didn't post on. This guy has been absolutely smashing it since we got back from Christmas, and it has been great to read and approve his quality posts.
Congrats man – it's been a long time coming and you totally deserve it!
Also – you won't believe the prize. Chuloopa – for some reason the company you use to send out t-shirts sent me out two the Lord is My Shepard t-shirts by mistake. So Jimu, along with another mystery prize, you will receive a timeless 'collectable' – my spare Chuloopa t-shirt!
