I'll be honest: I was expecting him to be more in line with Polygon. Aside from the occasionally great opinion pieces, I still see Kotaku as the "Buzzfeed of games" with all of their Top X lists. I just hope he doesn't meet the same fate as Christ Plante on The Verge. I rarely hear from that guy in their "TL;DR" pieces.
At least, Patrick won't be trying to sell me tips for meditating through the day to keep with the stress of life. I'm not completely against that sort of article; it just feels weird and preachy on a site talking about games and other 'nerdy' pop culture.
