If you hadn’t already figured that this week’s ‘Shop Contest would somehow involve naked Norman Reedus from Hideo Kojima’s newly-announced Death Stranding, welcome to Kotaku.
The weekend before last I asked our readers, as I do every year, to give us their vision of what E3 2016 might look like. Many of their entries were eerily accurate, and by that I mean not at all accurate, but highly amusing.
At the beginning of May the house that Mario built and Vans announced they would be partnering to release some special kicks featuring various Nintendo characters. Some look pretty nifty! Others... not so much.
After years of near-misses, classic puzzle game Tetris is threatening to become a movie. Maybe if we show them how badly Tetris works with existing movies they will stop.
The helmeted skull logo of Kojima Productions may have an official body now, but the unofficial ones created by our readers for last week’s ‘Shop Contest are much, much cooler.
“Pick a side, and then make it better than the other side.”Those were the instructions I gave in our Civil War-themed Photoshop contest. These are the results.
The results post for last week’s Kotaku ‘Shop Contest has been pushed to next weekend, while I deal with a very high fever and other fun medical things. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Sure we’re dealing with some super-powered being sand Spider-Man isn’t in the art to represent Team Tony, but this is hardly a war. If they want a war, we’ll give them a war.
Last week I asked our Photoshop-savvy readers to bring a little bright and fluffy to the dreary world of Dark Souls. This is the prettiest ‘Shop Contest winners post ever.
I know that fans of From Software’s brutal action role-playing games love their darkness, but with the third game hitting shelves last week I am getting sick and tired of dreary screenshots. Let’s brighten ‘em up a bit, shall we?
I know it feels like we’re piling up on Trump a little today, but in a Photoshop contest about a Pokemon that can copy anything, lharm explained so much with a single image it had to win.
Ditto is a Pokemon that can transform itself into a near-perfect copy of any opponent. With rudimentary image manipulation skill, anyone could be a Ditto. Anyone.
I promised myself I would never give our readers my picture to play around with, but the reaction to my recent beard loss was too much to ignore. The facial hair is gone but you can rebuild it. Make it strong. Faster. You have the technology.
And so a last-minute idea results in one of the best Kotaku ‘Shop Contests ever, with so many excellent entries there was no way I could pick one for the top. So I picked three.
Apparently I wanted to see Pokken Tournament and UFC 2 mashed together so badly that I couldn’t stop with just one image. Perhaps you nice people can help.
After several painstakingly thorough seconds of consideration, I give you the winner and subsequent other winners of our Stardew Valley-themed Photoshop contest. It was a tough decision, only it really wasn’t.
