Four day weeks, aw yeah. Can't believe it's Friday already. Time for me to eat crust pizza and play Trials. But before that — COMMUNITY KUDOS!
Seems like we've had a quiet week, which is normal post E3 and post long weekend. It seems as though there was a lil' bit of a Brisbane meet up last week, hosted by Trjn. At one point I think I'll have to make the jaunt up to Brissy and catch up with all the folks I haven't met in real life yet. I can't believe I've never met Sughly! What is wrong with this picture!
And speaking of the Sughster. He was the first nommer of the week!
Sughly gave 'preliminary noms' to Trjn for his hosting of the Brisbane meet up, but saved his mega nom for FatShady, who did a pretty awesome thing during his mega trip to Red Lynx studios, the home of Trials.
I have to give my almighty absolute vote to Fatshady. He sent me my own Trials comic signed by Antti from Redlynx himself. It is so amazing that I would so photograph it and send it to everyone if I had one of those spangly phones with cameras and stuff. Unfortunately I dont so I can only describe its glory. Its... yeah, its great.
This is the comic that FatShady had autographed by Antti from Red Lynx. So awesome.
Yeah, pretty amazing. Nice thought FatShady.
McGarnical took time out from his busy schedule of threatening little Timmy, and 'trying to eat lunch here', to nominate Shiggy Ninty for organising a Halo Reach night. He missed the first one, as did I, but I think the both of us want to get involved in the next one.
Speaking of Shiggy, what is this?
EARLY NOMS BECAUSE MAN ILL FORGET AND WORK IS A BITCH AMIRITE WOO YEAH SIPPIN DAT GIN AND JUICE HOMIE WORD LIFE.
First to Doc What for his truly brilliant editing skillz on Potaku.
Second to anyone who joined a Potaku Playnight.
Third to everyone again for the love and support on Potaku.
It is, of course, an email from Shiggy himself.
It's great to see the love for Potaku. I still can't believe that Potaku is a thing. It's proof we have the best community made up of the best people. If you want more proof, here is a message from Shiggy's Potaku co-conspirator demanding that kudos noms for Potkau should be made null and void.
WHAT UP, HOME SLICE?
And other cool, street vernacular.
Just so we all good, now the podcast won, it is removed from ever being a nom reason!
Alright, it is as you command 'homeslice'! But, please, keep up the good work guys, I really appreciate what you're all doing.
You know what time it is? It's time for Scree's mega noms.
I nominate Rocketman for sending me a external hard drive. Faction for trying to send me a 1TB one. Bish, Blaghman, Nos, NoobHeadshot, Cakesmith, Gorzilla, Greenius and anyone else I may have forgotten that's been helping me on the minecraft server.
Thanks for the email dear Scree. May your noms be plenty and your day fruitful. [I have no idea what I'm writing anymore]
My favourite nom email this week came from Cakesmith...
All aboard the kudos train.
Anyway, to be honest, I've been a bit absent from Kotaku this week so noms are difficult. Plus it would just be so easy to just got "SHIGGY AND DOC WHAT AGAIN!"
Trjn hosted a meat last weekend so a nom for that. Shane for being a genuinely awesome guy and always posting the best comments. Plus he's got a kid arriving next week. GO SHANE! Strange for being an awesome person. Freyr because she's a real doctor. Not like how Dr. Pepper is a doctor.
Yeah. That looks good.
ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY DR PEPPER ISN'T A REAL DOCTOR?
And finally, a nomination from Strange, and a call to use the word 'nifty' more often. This is a nifty cause I can get behind.
This week I would like to nominate Trjn for Kudos for his hosting of the Meat Meat and also for his liberal use of the criminally underused word 'nifty'. 'Nifty' is a very nifty word and more people should use it.
Well, that's that. I'm going to use the word 'nifty' more often, and I'm also going to say yes, I agree Strange, Trjn should be the winner of this week's Community Kudos.
Have a great weekend everyone!
