My Five Favorite Kotaku Stories From Last Week

Image for article titled My Five Favorite Kotaku Stories From Last Week

Tokyo Game Show and The Taken King dominated our coverage last week, but what were our best stories? I have some thoughts on that:


Most interesting dramas of the week: Riot vs. trash-talking League of Legends super-fan/YouTuber, Fans of old-school virtual bomb defusing vs. Valve, Madden the video game vs. Madden the possible card game, Until Dawn 2012 vs. Until Dawn 2015.

New game that generated the most enthusiasm from any writer on staff that wasn’t The Taken King: Undertale.

Videos you should watch:
