Brian's repeated use of "Fruit Fucker" in headlines - Kotaku Originals, no less! - this week will be a watershed moment in my development here. Sort of like the time my father made the mistake of laying down guidelines for "acceptable" swearing when I was 11. Yeah. No putting the genie back in the toothpaste tube once your pre-pubescent son launches his first parentally guided F-missile (I claimed the "under duress" exemption). With that example of permissive child rearing, thank God there were no M-rated games in 1984. I might have grown up to be something truly reprehensible, like a boxing promoter or a congressman.

Where the fuck were we? Oh yes, our originals coverage. Here it is. Another big week in Kotakopolis. Enjoy.
