Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to Community Kudos.
Only a few noms to report this week!
Let's start with a Welbot mega nom shall we!
Welbot First off, Qumulys! Old skool and not so present these days TAYbie! He gifted me Shadow Warrior for xmas! He totally shouldn’t have cos he’s probably as bad off financially as I am, but he did it anyway! I’m eternally thankful to him as I’ve been wanting to play this game since its release, and now I can! Have been having a blast playing through it so far too!
Next off is our resident champ The Cracks! He always surprises me at odd times with his little gifts, and what a gift it was! Magic The Gathering 2014! Wow! Can’t wait to get in to some multiplayer matches!
NegativeZero is the third recipient this round, thanks to him gifting me AntiChamber! Another game I’ve been wanting to play since its release, and have been enjoying scrambling my brain trying to figure this one out! J Mucho thanks!
This one’s not so much a nom as a special mention for the wonderful guys at Pixel-Otaku (probably mostly Shiggyninty’s doing, but they’re all great!) I won a competition on their site to win a game, but he/they ended up giving me 4 games instead! Bioshock Infinite, Gears of War 2, Fruit Ninja Kinect, and The Gunstringer! Bloody champs I tells ya!
Also want to extend a heartfelt thankyou to BeardyMcMuttonchops and his Mrs for inviting me to her b’day dinner! Was great to go out and have a good laugh and good feed and meet some new people!
That’s about it for this round I think! Hope you had a Merry Xmas and smashing new year! Best wishes for you and all the TAYbies in the coming year!
Jesus Christ, Hermes did his nom thing where he replaces all of the vowels with only one vowel. Every time I read these bloody noms I just sort of mumble. I defy you to read this out loud!

(Seriously though, haven't sent a nom in for a while on account of being away but I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Years, mate. Hope you have a super successful and fulfilling 2014! Sorry about that mess up there*)
Love Actually, Hermes/Sciencejayz Sciencejazzy. Jack. Etc.
And finally, we have this nom from Alex...
AlexPants I know the Masha edition of Kudos already happened, but I have a nom for him. On Saturday, Masha braved hours of trackwork on a really hot day to film his scenes as the police chief in the next TAYfilm. We really appreciated it and he did an EXCELLENT job - can't wait to show everyone.
You have yourself a grand long weekend
I mentioned this to Sughly in an email earlier today, but I might as well through it out there: I'm thinking about completely rebooting all of Kotaku's regulars, getting rid of a few, starting some new ones, etc.
Anyway, my question is this: are you guys still interested in Community Kudos? Do you still want it on the site? I've noticed a real dearth in noms over the past month or so. I fully take my part of the blame the Community Kudos being a little bit flat recently, but I'm more than willing to change the format or do something different, or completely can it if you guys and girls are over it? Suggestions are totally welcome!
Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there!
Congratulations to The Cracks! You are the winner of this week's Community Kudos!
