The document outlines a pitch for a strange live-streamed…

What keeps you up at night?
Hail Kotaku Readers! My name is Peter Tieryas and I’ll be your guest editor today. That means lots of retrogames, existential musings, and a list of the strangest football games I could find.
Thanks for the warm welcome this weekend, Kotaku faithful. I hope you all had as much fun as I did. Hit me up on Twitter at @CGidari if you ever want to say hi, and I'll see you around the comments section!
Thanks for hanging out this weekend, Kotaku! It's been real. And a big thanks to the other Kotaku editors who faithfully make this thing happen every week and still took the time to help me out. Them's good apples.
Top o' the weekend to you, Kotaku! I'm Dan Crabtree, and I'll be filling in for Owen for the next two days as your weekend editor. While I may not be able to promise you that Half Life 3 will ever be announced, I can promise that I'll dish up a healthy helping of gaming goodness and internet culture for the next 48…
The 'Shop Is Closed: We're taking a break from the Kotaku 'Shop Contest because I won't be around next weekend to round up the results and provide a new exploitable. We'll return with a new challenge on Sept. 22.
Sunday Comics and the Kotaku 'Shop Contest will return next week.
Nerd Rage, by Andy Kluthe, has joined our lineup, beginning today. We haven't gotten rid of Nerf This, which many of you have pointed out doesn't carry much of a gaming theme. That said, it was voted in by the readership, and I don't feel like being a dick to Nerf This creator Scott Ferguson and kicking him out. I…
Good morning, Kotaku! Owen isn't here right now. He can't come to the phone, and I'm certainly not taking a message for him. The best I can do is offer you two days of Kotaku my way.
It's that time again. It's time to look for Kotaku East interns. Do you live in Asia? Would you like to intern with Kotaku? Have I got something for you!
Welcome back to Kotaku.
For the past week, there has been intensifying interest in the ethics of games journalism. This was prompted by a screencap that made the rounds featuring GTTV host Geoff Keighley giving interviews while flanked by Pepsi and Mountain Dew as well as by a column on Eurogamer by comedian and critic Robert Florence that…
While the main site may be down, that doesn't mean our email accounts are. If you need to get in touch, or just want to say hi, we're still at tipsATkotakuDOTcom!
We'll be posting here until our site is back online. Kotaku and the rest of Gawker Media's sites were knocked offline yesterday as our main data center lost power due to flooding. We're awaiting word on when it will be up and running again, but with so many people out of power in Manhattan and surrounding areas, it's…
Just kidding. Well, kinda.
Ordinarily, I don't like to announce when I'm skipping town for 10 days, as the meth-heads tend to come over and borrow shit. Permanently. However, as all of said shit is in that truck you see above, and I'm going to be in the cab, I don't have much problem telling you I am on vacation once my shift ends today, and…
