Good evening and happy Friday, Kotaku conversation makers. We're just about to punch out for the week and cash our paychecks before the bank closes, but we put together something for you—it's an open thread!

Today's been too busy to read or write about anything but video games for yours truly, so I'd certainly appreciate it if you'd update us on current events and interesting revelations. The only thing I demand of you is that you tell me how many times you've seen the movie Beastmaster.

Carry on with the discussion, please. It's all yours.
