Welcome to another week of The Best of Kotaku. For this week's best image found on the Internets, we have this Pokémon artwork done by Reddit user Jord-UK.
It's my personal hope that I am continuously making you all change your desktop background, so here you go. Or save it for a rainy, "I can't believe I got sick of Calvin and Hobbes standing under the stars" day.
Before we dive into the best articles, opinions, and news from the Kotaku staff, let's see what the Kotaku community has been up to.
Want to suggest an article, comment, tweet, or any other content on Kotaku to be featured for a weekly Best Of nomination? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of "Best Of Nomination." Or any other subject line that will help me sort through and search for them. I'm not too picky.
I first call upon thee to honor my will
But you do not answer
Thou fear my truth
Thou fear thine true salvation
It is your time my children
I hath come to reap the sinners
Mock me if ye will
Let thine visions be blurred
But this comes at a price
Would you sacrifice thine soul?
The essence of thine being?
Look into my eyes young ones
What you see is not thy end
It is thy future
