Kind Kotaku readers, won't you come into this post and talk about the off-topic things we like to discuss when darkness falls over the video game news of the day? This is your opportunity.

I'll leave this open thread in your possession. I must prepare for a few days off and a trip to New York City, where at least three Kotaku editors will convene for things you probably aren't that interested in. Secret meeting stuff, you wouldn't want to be bothered. Until then, please, talk amongst yourselves.
