Morning everyone! At the moment it's 6.03am. I'm sipping on a cup of tea, and the sun is beginning to rise. I'm thankful because I'm still able to post on our official site here in Australia. Over in the US, in New York, things are a little different. As a result of the terrible floods US Kotaku is still down, and the US team is now posting from a makeshift site here and that's how things are going to be for the foreseeable future. That changes things a little for us here in Australia so, for today at least, Kotaku is going to be a little different!
We'll still be able to bring over posts from the US, but our ability to do that will be slightly deficient, since the normal automated system we use is completely broken down. This means we'll be doing so sparingly. Most of the content you'll see on the site today will be created here, in Australia. You might want to call today 'Australia Day'!
So please be patient with us, and give me a hand if you feel like it! Today, along with Elly Hart bringing in stories manually from the US, we'll mostly be a one man band. This is going to be different! If you think there's a story we've missed, feel free to email me directly.
And good luck to everyone affected by the floods on the East Coast of the US. Hope everyone's okay over there.
