@dorothycornel: I'm sorry, I don't know what came over me. If only I had a house to call my own, maybe I wouldn't be such a mental trainwreck...

@bigsocrates:Upon further investigation (internet rabbit-holes are fun!), this is what the article links to as Jake Steinberg's tweet. I'm not pasting it as a link because I don't want to set off the spam filters.

http://sora's%20running%20around%20with%20this%20mysterious%20key-shaped%20weapon%20then%20bam%20the%20mouse%20himself%20shows%20up%20and%20the%20gold%20color%20makes%20me%20think%20he's%20already%20gotten%20mastery%20over%20this%20thing!%20%20then%20you%20learn%20it's%20the%20realm%20of%20darkness%20counterpart%20to%20sora's%20keyblade%20like/

Here's the slide for reference.

...Look, I don't use twitter and I know how twitter works, but I look at that link and - nuh uh. This isn't a deleted tweet, this is just sadness. I would love if someone who used twitter sent the Kotaku slide to Jake Steinberg and got a response from him. And I would extra, extra love it if the word salad spinner they now have working over at kotaku.ai machine-generated a Kotaku article about a Kotaku article misquoting someone, as the snake continues to eat it's own tail. Then later in the afternoon the bot could post a quick guide on how to get all romance options for Shadowheart in Metal Gear Solid 4.

@bigsocrates: I honestly can't tell, but the phrase '[shocked face emoji].” being left as-is in the article tells me that, if any, there was minimal human involvement, or the involvement of a single or small group of individuals being asked to copy-edit their replacements. At the very least, it's going to be damn interesting to follow the career of new ascribed journalist Kotaku Bot and where their videogame list and guide writing abilities take us.

@styx971:There's a simple solution to this problem - remove the 'people' from the equation. In fact they just posted what seems like the first article attributed to Kotaku Bot, whose byline page reads "These stories were produced with the help of an AI engine.".

https://kotaku.com/best-video-game-weapons-guns-sword-rank-halo-series-1851366821

(Even the URL reads like SEO slurry)

"Several people named Kingdom Hearts’ keyblades as their favorite weapons, which makes sense as they can look so wildly different depending upon the wielder and the location in which the weapon is being used. Writer and comedian Jake Steinberg likes Mickey’s keyblade in particular, writing on X: “Sora’s running around with this mysterious key-shaped weapon then BAM the mouse himself shows up and the gold color makes me think he’s already gotten mastery over this thing! Then you learn it’s the realm of darkness counterpart to Sora’s keyblade like [shocked face emoji].”

Shocked face emoji, kids.

I fear for a future where game guides go the direction of food recipes, with 12 paragraphs of preamble of the author's deeply rooted excitement about where the collectibles are in the jungle level in Tomb Raider.

First thing that comes to mind is in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, there is love of dialog of you go get the Neuro Plasticity Stabilizer from Otar before your ripper-doc asks for it.

@thepanzini: Yeah, but would you take 'Homefront: The Revolution' over Mario / Zelda?

I don't know how people can forgive the ending of Episode 2, and they just never bothered to follow them up.

I recommend playing Half Life Alyx for the answer to this question and more.
