Another day, another bunch of E3 press conferences. Let’s talk about them!
On the second episode of Kotaku Splitscreen’s special E3 coverage, Jason Schreier and I talked about everything we liked (and didn’t like) about Bethesda’s press conference from last night, Square Enix’s letdown of a show this morning, and Ubisoft’s reliably daffy extravaganza earlier this afternoon. Listen below,...View more »
Finally, some potentially good news: in an effort to get the Trump administration to abandon its plan to place a 25 percent tax on all European auto imports, all three of the big German automakers—Daimler, Volkswagen, and NSU (just kidding, it’s BMW)—have come up with a proposal that would get rid of all car import tariffs between America and Europe.

I hate inflating those inflatable couches, and while they’re great for laying down on, they’re definitely not comfortable to sit on unless you’ve got something to prop them against. The Trono Chair inflates...View more »

Ever wonder how supermodels stay supernaturally young looking? Some of it’s genetics. A lot of it’s not. Face taping is a trick that I’ve seen and admired while on set with a lot of my fellow supes and hanging with my drag queen mister-sisters, but I haven’t tried it till now.
