Kotaku is a video games-focused blog. It is part of Gawker Media's "Gawker" network of sites, which also includes Gizmodo, Deadspin, Lifehacker, io9 and Jezebel. Named to CNET News' Blog 100, Kotaku is consistently listed in the top 40 of Technorati's Top 100. The site is currently headed by Stephen Totilo; other editors include Brian Ashcraft, Luke Plunkett and Michael Fahey, Owen Good. Alumni of the site include Bungie Studios' Luke Smith, IGN.com's Jim Reilly, FastCompany.com's Adam Barenblat, Wired.com's John Brownlee (writing as Florian Eckhardt), Eliza Gauger and Vox Games' Brian Crecente.
In August 2007, Allure Media launched Kotaku Australia. The site makes use of licensed content from Gawker Media in combination with original stories produced locally. On July 30, 2009, Kotaku Japan was launched by mediagene INC. The site will contain content from Gawker Media translated into Japanese, as well as Japanese-related gaming news. In November 2010 a Brazilian version of Kotaku, Kotaku Brasil (with translated and original content) was launched.
On March 1, 2007 Kotaku reported – as a follow-up to an interview with the Game Developers Conference executive director, Jamil Moledina, who said that Sony's Phil Harrison's keynote would make PlayStation 3 owners "very happy" – a rumor from an anonymous tipster that the PlayStation 3 would be releasing "PlayStation Home," an achievement and virtual avatar add-on. Concerning the rumor, Sony had told Kotaku that they "do not comment on rumors or speculation" and asked Kotaku not to publish the story. The story was published anyway, and Sony's David Karraker sent an email declaring that the two parties' professional relationship was suspended. Kotaku published Mr. Karraker's email and Kotaku's response from its editor, Brian Crecente. Later that day, Dave Karraker and Brian Crecente spoke on the phone and sorted the matter out, and Sony invited Kotaku to their GDC events and meetings.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
