Congrats to Chris “WaDi” Boston and Cinnpie. Boston would go on to beat Tweek in a 3-2 set and steal our hearts in the process.
If you play games, you’ve thought about which voice actor you want to narrate your daily goings-on. For me, it’s GLaDOS. She’s reciting a fruit tart recipe. For Kotaku reader Chad Oliver, it’s The Stanley Parable’s Kevan Brighting, and he’s narrating his marriage proposal.
I’ve seen a handful of video-game-themed marriage proposals in my day, but this one takes the cake.
Three and a half years ago, Stevie Kopas bought an uneccesary second copy of BioShock from GameStop as an excuse to talk to the guy behind the counter. This weekend that guy gave her a third copy, but what was inside was much better than a video game.
"Will you be my player two?" More beautiful words between two gamers have never been spoken. Offbeat Bride tribesmaid Kaharaminttu raised the phrase to new levels of sweetness with this creative coin box proposal to her husband-to-be.
Reader Matt writes in to tell us how he proposed to his girlfriend up on the big stage at MineCon, getting the wonderful folks at Mojang to play along in getting his future wife up on stage to pop the question.
Gary Hudston commissioned three spectacular custom-built Portal 2 levels complete with fresh dialog from the voice of GLaDOS, Ellen Mclain, just to ask his girlfriend to marry him. After watching the glorious spectacle unfold, I'm ready to marry the guy.
If her "awwww! Yes ... !" reaction doesn't melt your heart, then that little dog jumping and wagging his tail when they kiss will definitely finish you off.
This is the most touching marriage proposal involving the word "motherfucker" - and a spiked baseball bat - I've ever seen. A woman enlisted the help of Fallout's modding community to build a level in which she popped the question.
