The Best of Kotaku, This Week

Welcome to the Best of Kotaku, where I round up all of this week's best content.

First up is the image above which, if you've gotten to know me virtually since I started here at Kotaku, you'll know I can't resist a good Adventure Time reference. You might have seen our Facebook page littered with Adventure Time images. Yeah, that'd be me. Thank this Reddit user for making it, and making me wish my early Nintendo days had Adventure Time in it. Though it should be mentioned that the character art was done by Kyle Templeton.

Moving on to our Best Of content this week, we kick things off as usual with a comment from the community.

If you want to see the list of nominations (and other random conversations) you can head to my most recent nomination post that goes up every Friday here.
