Hello, hi, welcome. Take a seat and we will start the open thread momentarily. I just need to finddd...the... buttonnnn...AHH! Here we go. The open thread is...LIVE!


For those of you who care and don’t follow me on Twitter, I became a full-time writer for Kotaku last week. This is some good news in a time when it seems only bad news is floating around. I feel guilty for being able to smile and happily tell folks of something good happening, but I’ve been surprised how many people seem to relish the good news I share. In these dark times, it helps to know good things can still happen, I guess.

Nothing is going to change around here. I’m still the Weekend Editor, I just also work a few days during the week too. I’ll still post terrible, weird garbage and I’ll still hold weekly Photoshop contests and all that usual stuff. But now I’m full time and have insurance. I’ve never had health insurance. Wild stuff!

How’s it going? Any of you wonderful folks have some good or even okay news to share? How long have you been locked inside now? Do you remember going out and doing stuff? I don’t.

Kotaku Weekend Editor | Zack Zwiezen is a writer living in Kansas. He has written for GameCritics, USgamer, Kill Screen & Entertainment Fuse.



Congrats, Zack! I enjoy your content, it’s good to see you around.

Good news I have to share:

* What We Do In The Shadows season 2 is very good so far, and we are getting a lot of good Guillermo moments.

* I got more of the recipes for that sleek Ironwood furniture in New Horizons, and I am on my way to my dream of having a very sexy industrial iron kitchen.

* Jackbox raised money for COVID relief with their charity stream the other day, and Vinesauce are making preparations for their yearly weekend-long stream for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.

* It was a relative’s birthday the other day, so a few of my family members met up, and we had homemade strawberry pie.
