Late late late! I was busy writing a review of Rare Replay this morning, but I do want to share my five favorite Kotaku pieces from last week.

Bonus piece, if I can be so humble to plug my own story: Level 8 In A Land of 34s: A Newbieā€™s Take On Destiny

Headline of the week: Konamiā€™s New Initiative: Erotic Castlevania Pachinko

GIF of the week (via Highlight Reel):


Got thoughts about what we published last week or about stories youā€™d like to see on the site? Let me know.
