Kotaku! It's getting hot out there, so let's stay cool with another open thread, our nightly refuge against the heat and conversations that are JUST about video games. C'mon in, the comments are fine.

I've got an early day tomorrow, heading to MTV in Santa Monica for a GameTrailers taping where I'll be talking about games like Dark Souls, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and much, much more. Should be fun!

I'll leave you with just a few links that might be worth reading/watching/discussing. Good night!
