When I visited Taiwan in 2010 I saw people wearing them all over the place as well. A friend from the area told me it was more or less a general hygiene and precautionary practice for all the possible reasons you could imagine. i.e. to keep from getting sick/to keep others from getting sick. » 10/16/14 1:37pm Thursday 1:37pm

Guess your name is pretty relevant then... You are in a constant state of distraction, hence you didn't get the oh so subtle nuance of an article about a weapon printed from a VIDEO GAME model posted on a VIDEO GAME site being about how cool it is that something VIDEO GAME related became REAL. » 10/15/14 10:05pm Wednesday 10:05pm

I find that most people who claim someone has an agenda are themselves ignorant of their own agenda of spreading misinformation. Does that mean I have an agenda for calling someone out for having an agenda? Maybe... If I did that agenda would be JUSTICE! And CUTE IS JUSTICE!!! » 10/14/14 8:12pm Tuesday 8:12pm

No new information was given. They all knew that at least one of them had green eyes because they can see other dragons with green eyes. Had you told them they ALL have green eyes and it was assumed that you could not lie, then they would all know they had green eyes, but telling them simply that "at least one" has… » 10/05/14 1:16pm 10/05/14 1:16pm

Here is hoping they're selling enough digitally to not feel so bad about the physical sales >.< I personally plan on getting it digitally when it gets released in the west, but I know I'm also in the minority of total sales, especially when it comes to Nintendo games sold digitally. » 9/27/14 8:06pm 9/27/14 8:06pm

While I am admittedly not a fan of League, I can appreciate the imagery and presentation of the ad, and I would be lying if I said I didn't feel tingles from similar ads for things that I am actually a fan of. Honestly, I don't think there is anything wrong with making an ad that caters to the audience it is intended… » 9/18/14 10:37pm 9/18/14 10:37pm

I'm originally from SC, and I never in a million years would have guessed they hosted a con of any sort except maybe BBQcon... Also I'll second that comment about the sub. I've visited the Yorktown and been in that sub. If you are a person over the height of 5'4" then you will probably not have an easy time getting… » 9/15/14 2:01pm 9/15/14 2:01pm

I have noticed a recent upswing in attention towards gamer behavior online, and I must say, I approve. I personally feel like immature behavior like what was pointed out in this article shouldn't even exist. I've posted numerous times that I think we should be doing more to stamp out negative online behavior, and I am… » 9/02/14 11:11pm 9/02/14 11:11pm

I performed the solo for it live with my choir (it's on youtube, but dunno that I feel comfortable enough to identify myself that explicitly on Kotaku) so I couldn't help but view it critically, but I must say they did a really great job. I didn't get to work with the Tin man personally for pronunciation though. All I… » 8/23/14 5:55am 8/23/14 5:55am

Some well-informed streamers were already aware something like this would happen, well before Twitch actually cracked down on it... How did they know? A little ditty called TOS tipped em off... The real question then is why the hell would anyone flip out about this when the signs were there from the beginning...… » 8/07/14 12:10am 8/07/14 12:10am

This hints at something I called before day 1 of the Wii U even. Yes, the Wii U GamePad is expensive, but if you only need one (maybe 2 in the future) to take advantage of what it has to offer, then 5-10 years from now when the next console cycle for Nintendo rolls around, all of those loyal Nintendo fans will already… » 7/23/14 1:58pm 7/23/14 1:58pm
