It's been a long, hard year. But 2012 is coming to an end, climaxing in the end of year holidays. There's been a plethora of game posts here on Kotaku. Some of them have been breaking, some of them have been enlightening, and some of them have not exactly been safe for work.
So, let's look back at the sexy and sometimes lurid year that was 2012.
Here are some of this year's most interesting (and alarming) NSFW posts. And don't worry. It's late now. After dark. Enjoy.
While 1995 was a simpler time, that doesn't mean it wasn't a sexier one. Just look at the saucy hijinks Japanese game developers slipped into Kirby's Dream Land 2. More »
If you hear the words "professional video game player", you probably picture somebody who is, well, the exact opposite of awesome. As fair or unfair as that is (sorry professional video game players!), that's usually what happens. More »
It's been, what, only a few weeks since Slooshi was caught jerking off on camera after a League of Legends livestream event? Well, looks like somebody - and by somebody, I mean World of Warcraft player murdaralph - didn't learn their lesson.

Sony's Wonderbook copped laughs at E3 because it's for kids, and grown-up gamers on the internet simply can't abide that. But just when you thought the fancy book-and-wand set was only of use for wee ones, here's a video from GameSpot's Danny O'Dwyer showing its more... More »
Ladies, have you gone lonely as your lovers have spent hours trying to penetrate the secrets of Diablo III (or, more probably, penetrate the game's login screen). More »
You know the rule: If it exists, there's a porn of it. Well, video game Lollipop Chainsaw exists (we have the review to prove it). And now there is the inevitable adult video version of it.
Slated to be released next week, the movie is called Tia's Geek Cosplay FUCK!... More »
Don't ask me why I wound up googling this cutscene from Phantasmagoria over the weekend, but I did, and I watched it, and good lord. It's even worse than I remembered!
Go ahead and watch it. More »
Cats and porn. These are two of the biggest juggernauts on the internet. And a Japanese company called Soft On Nyanko has figured out how to bring them together, like never before. More »
Don't worry, this isn't (very) NSFW. We're here for laughs, not leers.
The clip above is an edited version of a film (remixed by DeeprUnderstanding) originally directed executive produced by Hugh Hefner himself, back when he was just an old guy who was out of touch, and not the shambling ghost of... More »
It was unlike anything the villagers had ever seen. The young news reporter who arrived on the scene was quick to point out that the "mysterious mushroom" felt "meaty". More »
This March, a NSFW thread popped up on 2ch, the country's largest bulletin board. The thread's title was "Let's Gather All the Nude Art Model Pics by Searching Google!", and it featured an array of nude art models.
But something funny happened. More »
Poor Slooshi. The League of Legends player was livestreaming one of his rounds earlier today when, in a fit of boredom, he decided to alt+tab and do something else.
Like, uh, go watch some porn. More »
A post by a psychotherapist on the RPG-Maker forums informed the world of his latest idea: a game about sex. Not the clean, safe sex we typically see in games, mind. More »

Illustrator Mao Sugiyama tweeted a simple proposition: Mao's male genitals (penis, testicles, and scrotum) as a ¥100,000 meal. The illustrator even offered to cook them.
Sugiyama is not a real chef-and admitted as much-but was offering a real plate of penis. More »
A generation of military first-person shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield may have millions of kids thinking they know modern warfare, but they don't. More »
Ask any anime fan, and they'll tell you: cartoons in Japan are different from their localized counterparts. Last night on Japanese TV, the issue was explored for the Japanese viewing public, who was surprised to learn that English language versions of anime are edited. More »

Like almost every other game, Mass Effect 3 has official subtitles. But that's not what we're looking at today. No, what you're about to see is what happens when people record themselves playing Mass Effect 3, upload videos to YouTube then let Google's service try and guess what's being said on... More »
