A Note About Sunday Comics

Nerd Rage, by Andy Kluthe, has joined our lineup, beginning today. We haven't gotten rid of Nerf This, which many of you have pointed out doesn't carry much of a gaming theme. That said, it was voted in by the readership, and I don't feel like being a dick to Nerf This creator Scott Ferguson and kicking him out. I… » 1/06/13 8:55am 1/06/13 8:55am

Meet Kotaku's Special Weekend Guest Star: Dave Oshry

In fifth grade we had two teachers and one of them would routinely be (finger quotes) sick, because her (finger quotes) medicine sometimes had (finger quotes) side effects. That's sort of what is going on while I am out this weekend. » 1/14/12 8:00am 1/14/12 8:00am
