Thanks for the warm welcome this weekend, Kotaku faithful. I hope you all had as much fun as I did. Hit me up on Twitter at @CGidari if you ever want to say hi, and I'll see you around the comments section!
As a young lad my gaming library was pretty limited, so I needed to find ways to make those games last. You can only play a game so many times before you've explored every nook and cranny of it, and once that happened it was time to get creative.
Welcome to Kotaku's Sunday Comics, your weekly roundup of the best webcomics. Mike Fahey might be away this weekend, but I couldn't leave you hanging. The images enlarge if you click on the magnifying glass icon.

P.T. might not have much in common with The Stanley Parable, but that didn't stop Youtuber Its a mirage from mashing up the narration of the latter with the spine-tingling gameplay of the former.
Dink Smallwood was a little indie darling that deserved a lot more attention than it got back when it was first released in 1998.
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition dropped for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this week, and it's good. So good, in fact, that it has Kotaku's Yannick LeJacq switching his Diablo allegiance from PC to PS4.
