It's a special St. Patrick's Day edition of Kotaku Off Topic, a chance for the conversation to be not just about video games, but not just about pounding Guinness and Irish whiskey as well.

Well, my conversation starter is going to be about today's holiday. I'm half-Irish, so I'll be putting in half the effort, going so far as to drive to the local liquor store and picking up a few cans of stout, maybe grabbing a box of Lucky Charms and a copy of Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood on VHS along the way. Maybe I'll even have my first Shamrock Shake from the nearby McDonald's. You know, I've never actually tasted a Shamrock Shake.

Just kidding. I'm probably going to eat a burrito while reading the following things or catching up on Lost.
