Thanks For Helping Kotaku Australia Win Stuff!

Hey guys — I'm overseas to check out some top-secret video games. I'm posting this after a nightmare flight, stuck in airport hell, but in case you haven't noticed from the While You Were Sleeping post, we won some awards, and I wanted to take some time to boast, but also to thank you guys!

If you read Community Kudos last Friday you would have seen that myself, Tracey and Kotaku were nominated for a number of awards, and I’m pleased to report that we won! Not all of them… but most of them.

Kotaku Australia won best gaming coverage for the second year running, and ex-Associate Editor Tracey ‘Bubble-T’ Lien had an absolute belter, taking out best Games Journalist and best overall journalist of the year, for her work on Kotaku towards the end of 2011, which is an incredible achievement.

It means that, for the second year running, Kotaku Australia has swept the games awards, a fact which I’m extremely proud of

I want to take a second to really thank everyone that reads Kotaku Australia. I firmly believe that we have the best audience of any games site in Australia (nay… the world) and I’m so proud of writing for an audience that responds brilliantly to the kind of content we aspire to write for Kotaku Australia — high end, top quality features that explore all aspects of gaming culture.

If you guys and girls didn’t respond to our longer form content the way you have, we probably wouldn’t be able to focus so much time on creating that content, so thanks for reading what we write, and thanks for being so supportive.


    You guys deserved every single bit of praise and all of the shiny statues.

    I'm glad that I could be a part of it, by being the one to come up with Bubble-T's nickname.

    Your articles are the best out of all the media outlets I read Mark. Hope you guys sweep next years set too. Congratulations to you all

      With KotAU, Penny Arcade Report and now Polygon (Bubble-T's new home), it looks like games journalism is heading in a much better direction.

        Bubble T's new home is a plastic cup with a straw.

    We should regularly click on more adds just to help Kotaku Au out.... amiright?

    Congratulations Mark, Tracey and the rest of the Australian (key word Australian) team for providing the best articles out there! Love ya work and check the site multiple times a day (naturally it is my homepage).

    Congrats again!

    Congrats on the wins! you all totally deserve it. There is a reason you have such a great community, and that is the high quality of content you pride yourself on. Be proud, and gloat all you need.

    You guys deserve the win. You post a lot of good long form articles. I wish you had four arms so we could get more.

    Congratulations to the community as well.

    Kotaku is my (gaming) home away from home - or my gaming fix when I'm at work. It's no wonder you guys are bringing home awards when you keep an addict like me from going through withdrawals day in day out.

    Well done peeps.

    I take it your all going to be changing your names to 'multi-award winning Mark Serrels' and 'multi-award winning' Tracey Lien?

      I approve this name change. Make it so.

    Always a pleasure to read Kotaku AU.

    Very well deserved!

    Yay Tracey, you rock!

      Guess the rest of Kotaku Au is pretty good as well :P Props where it is deserved.

    Congrats Kotaku AU, well deserved.

    Congrats Kotaku!

    Now make it up to us and fire Brian Ashcraft.

    Congratulations once again guys. Kotaku AU has always been my go-to site for keeping up with the local gaming news and I'm happy to see it and the authors getting the recognition they deserve.

    Congratulations! \o/
    You deserve every single on of them. In fact I think you deserve more, but that's just me.

    we will party in your honour at the MONOMEAT

    Congratulations Koatku Australia! I come here all the time now for any and all gaming news.
