This will be my last Community Kudos for a while, being that I’m going back home to the motherland to eat haggis, wear loads of kilts and drink Irn Bru until my teeth melt. In the meantime I recommend getting in touch with our very own Tracey Lien at the Kotaku tips email for any nominations!
Last week was a dry, barren wasteland of noms — they were nowhere to be found — but this week? There was a barrage, mostly centred around two people.
Chuloopa and Anonymous Pessimist – two colossi. Two magnificent specimens exemplifying the superiority of the Kotaku community. Two man-god-kings standing astride this website like bronzed spartans… two genetic freaks of manliness.
Chuloopa, of course, wrote the mantastical third entry into his Kotaku Chronicles. I was blown away. Not only was it well written, hilarious, and insightful – it somehow managed to fit all of our own posting personalities into a story that mixed the realities of posting on this site with an insane Space Opera style plot. I loved it. I love reading. Please keep up with this when you have the time, because it really made my day!
Anonymous Pessimist – he’s like Al Pacino in Carlito’s Way. Just when he thinks he can leave Talk Amongst Yourselves, he keeps getting dragged back in. We all miss his manic posting, and his strange ability to inspire chaos, but this week — with his first mega paycheck from his high rolling new job — he bought a number of folks a copy of Borderlands.
This is the measure of the man.
Not to be forgotten, however, in the generosity stakes, is Effluvium Boy. Who gave Andrew Burdusel a whole bunch of Magic: The Gathering cards. Personally, I know absolutely nothing about Magic: The Gathering, but apparently that’s a huge deal!
As for this week’s winner?
It has to be another joint effort…
So congrats to both Chuloopa and Anonymous Pessimist!
I’m very aware that I still owe both of you prizes from other endeavours — rest assured I will send the Kotaku delivery turtle on her way before I leave for Scotland!
Have a great weekend everyone!
