Kotaku

About

Kotaku is a gaming blog that focuses on the news about video games and other related news. Kotaku is also a part of Gawker Media by blog network Gawker.

Origin

In October 2014, Kotaku was first launched with Matthew Gallant as lead writer. A month later Kotaku is going downhill until Brian Crecente joins to save Kotaku from massive failure. Since its rescue from Brian Crecente, Kotaku launched internationally for Australia, Japan, Brazil and the United Kingdom. In 2012, Stephen Totilo now (and currently) runs Kotaku in replacement of Brian Crecente after he left Kotaku for Polygon.

Controversy

Jack Thompson Suing

In 2007, attorney Jack Thompson was suing Gawker Media over Kotaku user comments he finds it a threat. Kotaku decide not to remove the user comments. The next day the lawsuit is dismissed.

The Quinnspiracy

In August 16th, 2014, Eron Gjoni, ex-boyfriend of indie game developer and former Suicide Girls model Zoe Quinn, accused her of cheating on him with a number of men working in the video game industry, including Kotaku staff writer Nathan Grayson, in exchange for publicity and fame for her 2014 text-based indie game Depression Quest. This started a highly online controversy and the beginning of GamerGate.

Blacklisting

In November 19th, 2015, Kotaku's Stephen Totilo made a article on Kotaku that two major gaming companies Bethesda and Ubisoft blacklisted them.
