Actually, this looks fairly fatal, but really - I know nothing.
I do know that most of the internet seems to be cheering this turn of events, and more than anything I hope that Kotaku is bought out by the most bland, straight-laced media outfit around. I'd love to see that site reduced to the most uncontroversial of topics. Maybe, just maybe, they'll find a way to crowdsource all of their articles without paying anyone at all. A man can dream.
