Every week, we will be compiling the best of Kotaku. From our reviews and feature articles to comments from you, the community members.
Highlighted first is our favorite image that we've found this week. The bronze, scholarly gentleman take on our favorite companion cube was a no-brainer. Want it for your wallpaper? We don't blame you. Head over to Risachantag's deviant art page to grab it.
Since this is the first of our weekly round-ups, we'd like to pass the ball into your court, readers. We want to feature the best comments from our community right here. Like, right where this text is.
Beyond your comments, we've got our favorite stories of the week below. Enjoy, and happy weekend!
Want to suggest an article, comment, tweet, or any other content on Kotaku to be featured for a weekly Best Of nomination? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of "Best Of Nomination." Or any other subject line that will help us sort through and search for them. We're not too picky.
