As you may have noticed, we’ve launched a new series called Kotaku Asks, in which we bring interesting people to come take your burning questions. We’ve already got a great lineup of guests slated for April, but we want your feedback: who would you like to see us invite for the future? Famous game developers?…
As many gamers can tell you, bugs can be a problem. No, like bugs—real bugs. Roaches. Gross, you say. That would be correct. But this is a friendly reminder that bug infested consoles are very much a thing.
In particular, Kotaku East is looking for interns in Asia that are located outside of Japan. Here are the particulars:
Not only is Kotaku going through applications for Tokyo correspondents (we are currently no longer accepting applications), it is also looking to expand its coverage beyond Japan to China and South Korea.
Occasionally, people ask me, "Brian Ashcraft, is Kotaku ever hiring?" To which I reply, "No, random person, it is not." But if you were to ask me that same question today, I'd have a very different answer.

Some time over the weekend a group compromised Gawker Media's servers, resulting in a security breach at all of the Gawker sites, including this one. Editors and tech are here for all the Q&A you can handle about what happened.
While most of us (really all of us) are busy eating Turkey or sleeping, there will still be a steady stream of stories coming to you from Kotaku.
Game reviews are a contentious thing.
Did you know that Kotaku has its own Twitter account?
Kotaku Brasil is live with a countdown clock and a playable game of Arkanoid.
Fact: Many of the most important moments in my life have been marked by Antonio Carlos Jobim's wonderful song, The Girl from Ipanema. That song seems to drift through my best moments.
The corn mazes are open, the pumpkins on sale, the leaves are turning brown and, if Mother Nature didn't hate us, it would be getting cooler here in the Northern Hemisphere.
Earlier this year, we all had a laugh along with/at the expense of a handful of video game industry hopefuls competing in the PlayStation Network reality show The Tester. Sadly, I won't be liveblogging the series' next season.
