Welcome to Kotaku Off Topic. Are you busy watching the Interactive Achievement Awards? No? Would you like to talk about something not particularly video game related? This post is your chance.

I am watching the Interactive Achievement Awards which is currently blazing through a bunch of awards like visual engineering awards and game play engineering. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves appears to be walking away with just about everything so far, with the exception of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Have you ever won any exciting awards? I think I have a few Pinewood Derby trophies and a few corporate accolades, but that's about it. No Olympic gold medals, sadly.

Anyway, carry on. This Kotaku Off Topic is all yours, as are these sundry links for potential conversation starters.
