Community Kudos

Man am I ever glad it's Friday! Welcome to Community Kudos!

So this week heralded the end the Kotaku Kristmas Project and a little bit of controversy, but I'm going to sidestep that completely because, well, everything's been said already!

What I would like to say is this: thank you all so much for participating. Thank you for putting the massive effort in. Thanks for incredible artwork, the thoughtful presents, the brilliant competition entries — in general thanks for being the best group of people on the internet. The moment when everyone burst into the Kotaku office is something that'll live in my memories for a long time. It's so incredible to see that the work Tracey and myself put into Kotaku every day is valued. Please know that each and every one of you guys is valued by us in the exact same way.

Thank you!

Anyway, on with the noms!

Chuloopa was one of the first off the mark as alway, nomming F4ction. What a guy that F4ction is, what with his Melbourne Meat hosting abilities. Apparently everyone ate a lot of pizza. As long as there weren't too many olives on the pizza I totally approve of that food choice.

There were a couple of other noms for F4ction, from Tigerion, who also nommed Morf "for sharing his girly beers" and Negative Zero for dropping him off at the end of the Melbourne/Geelong meat.

Strange is on a muthaf***in' plane! To Los Angeles. I totally missed the reasons why she's going, but I hope she has a great time. Crazily she still managed to nom...

Greetings, Sir Serrels!

By the time you post this week's Kudos winner I shall be on a plane on my way to LA. I hope everyone behaves next week without me around to keep them in line. :P

My pick for person most deserving of Kudos this week is Freeze S. Preston Icequire. Why? Because I said so(well it works on my kids!).

Shane needs to be commended yet again for his Million Deaths of the Soul Knight stories, and he won't accept Kudos for them, but his latest one is really something very special so everyone should read it.


NovaCascade nominated a bunch of folks — Greenius for matching him word for word in Xenblade fandom, and Riza and Virus__ for hooking up Kotaku matches on TF2.

Dr What also managed to rack up the noms — mainly for hooking up and helping organise the all you can eat pizza lunch happening in Sydney tomorrow. Man, Pizza. It truly is the food of the TAYbies. Just remember kids — no olives. The noms came from Shiggy 'Awesomo Power' Ninty and Bish. Good job Mr What.

This week, however, the choice was clear. Overwhelmingly clear. This guy received noms from Scree, Chuloopa, Steve-O, Bish, and NotoriousR — and rightly so. This is the guy who totally just gifted Scree a PSP. Just for the hell of it. Just to be nice.

The winner is BDKIAF!

As always — you guys continue to blow me away.

Anyway, I have to bail, cooking dinner for a stupid amount of people. Going to get my 'basil' on. I don't really know what that means. I guess it means I'm going to cook food. Whatever!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    You didn't actually mention who won. BDKIAF! The PSP arrived safe and sound! And mum thanks you for the extra bubble wrap, it kept her entertained forquite a while =D

      For my friends birthday, i bought him $30 worth of bubble wrap. He said it was his best present ever. Everyone loves bubble wrap!

      Also, awesome job BDKIAF!

        Hm, Mum's 60th is coming up...
        Sometimes the smallest things really give people the most joy.

      I've been waiting all day to find out whether it made it to you okay!

      I'm glad your mum enjoyed the bubble wrap, hopefully you have at least as much fun with the PSP.

        Oh crap I KNEW I needed to go on my email. Sorry, I did mean to send you a message. However, I had a nap and I managed to sleep talk my Mum out of waking me up.
        Oh and thanks again ^^



        That's okay Mark. It's 5pm and you've obviously got the dinner plans on your mind.
        I didn't want to say BDKIAF won because even though it was the only possible outcome, you never assume.


            It's a little expensive to buy them all o_o
            I need to ask what your opinion is of Parasite eve the 3rd birthday

              I haven't actually played that one yet. I have, however, found you the collector edition for just $20.


              Probably the only thing i know about this game is that it has real-time jean-ripping.

                here's a review!

    Congrats "This Guy"! :P
    Also, is it just me or is the first tag slightly higher than the rest...

      It is! The tags are hilarious. Thanks for bringing them to my attention.

    Also strange is oging over seas to see a heavy metal festival on a boat....this is correct yes? A giant boat. full of metal heads.??

      You could say that...

      If i were Strage i would be stallllkin them soooo hard.

      Also nightwish.. sooooo hot

    Wowza cheers for the nom :). I do like me some Xenoblade discussion (I've never had a Xenoblade discussion before that).

    And as always, grats to the other noms and the winner BDKIAF :). As soon as I read that you gave scree a PSP just because you're a nice guy I was mega jealous.

    Good ol Strange... never lets you down. Nommin like a true Champ as always!

    Congrats to BDKIAF!! Epic win there for reals!!!

    This is stupendous!
    I've been takin ga bit of a break today, and distracting myself with work, but i want to say i am so damn glad that BDKIAF got the goal!

    PSP is honestly my favorite protable of all time. There are just so damn many amazing games on it.. such a pity it didn't do well commercially.

    I also wanted to let you know, i just found out that Hunted:The Demons Forge is just $15 preowned on Game Au's website!!!
    I am sooooo buying it!!!

    Does anyone know if P\O copies of that game require online passes to play MP? If not, SCORE!

      good lord ,Psp is good and all but best?

        You can't even play Angry Birds on it!! ;)

    Mentioned! \o/

    My name is wrong! /o\

    Grats to BDKIAF!

    Well done BDKIAF, you are awesome

    Also Strange on a plane is a great tag

    PSP Wins hands down. Agreed Chuloopa!

    Speaking of which, i need to get back to "Trails in the Sky".

    Wow, thanks!

    I'd reply better but I'm in a rush to guyliner up and get out the door.

    This isn't a regular thing, in case you were wondering.

    Nicely done BDKIAF, is now the right time to put pressure on you to come to another Can'd Meat?

      5 seconds later I check my emails, and suddenly my comment is awkward.

      High five self.

      High five!

    Congrats BDKIAF. Amazing thing you did well done.

    I had no idea, that's so nice BDKIAF! Congrats and well deserved.

    Pfft, was totally Rize who did all the organising, since he put the events up.

    Grats to BDKIAF, was well deserved bro.
