Kotaku Tower was all but empty thanks to E3, but does that mean everything just ground to a halt? No. Trash had to be taken out, decks had to be scrubbed, pool filters cleaned, hamsters fed. And with everyone off at E3, who was going to do it all? Our sponsors. Bless them. So a big thank you this week to Atari, Coors Light, Sony Crackle, Eve Online, Everquest Living, Legacy, Final Fantasy, Gamestop, Mighty Leaf Tea, Starwood Hotels, Top Spin and T-Mobile.
