It’s Monday; time for a reset. Here’s the best stuff from around the web in the last week of video games.

AMONG THE MANY MYSTERIES HIDEO KOJIMA MAY NEVER ANSWER, THIS ONE HAS ALWAYS PLAGUED MY THOUGHTS…

IF YOU’RE READING THIS WHILE WAITING FOR OTACON TO BUST YOU OUT OF YOUR PRISON CELL, HEAD OVER TO WAYPOINT. NOT ONLY ARE THEY DEDICATING AN ENTIRE WEEK TO GAMING AND IT’S RELATIONSHIP TO OUR INCARCERATION CULTURE HERE IN THE USA… they’re kicking it off with a look at the lending library at Guantanamo Bay. I couldn’t even imagine a place like that having a Playstation 3. via Waypoint Vice

VIDEO GAMES ARE AN EXCELLENT WAY TO KILL TIME, WHICH IS NICE WHEN YOU’RE IN PRISON… but these Splatoon 2 players seem to be experts at killing time while not even playing the game. Some of this art is incredible, though. via Kotaku

COMIC CON WAS ON THIS WEEKEND, SO TRAILERS ARE DROPPING EVERYWHERE…

…here’s your obligatory Ready Player One debut. via YouTube

WHILE MOVIES LOOK INTO THE POSSIBLE GAMING FUTURE (AS IMAGINED BY ERNEST CLINE)… Matt Leone digs into the past to investigate the few remaining remnants of a largely-defunct time gone by: independent retail. via Polygon

AND HEY, REMEMBER, NO MATTER HOW BAD YOUR DAY IS GOING…

…it’s probably still better than this Age of Empires player’s. via r/gaming
