Greetings, Kotaku readers, and welcome to one more week of unbearable toil. I mean... uh, good evening and thanks for joining us in another open thread! Heh! Let's get to it.

We're just about a week away from Gamescom, representing the end (for me, anyway) of a long summer of travel and video game trade show attendance. No PAX or Tokyo Game Show for yours truly, for which I am somewhat thankful. But I do look forward to ingesting regrettable amounts of schnitzel and bier over the course of the next week. I'm already building up a hearty German thirst.


Anyway, this is an open thread, where you're free to discuss matters that aren't solely video game related. So... have at it! Here's a few links for kicks.
