Sadly, the answer is "about zero," given that part right there in the posting where it says, "Do you love reading Dengeki?" Kotaku is slightly (not really) less intolerable than the games "news" websites (they are trying mightily to have a uniquely terrible layout, I see), but aside from an occasional Tim Rogers guest article, they aren't doing anything particularly interesting along the lines of GamaSutra or GameDev or IC, unless you find translating PR interesting.

Kotaku isn't just awful as a news source, but they have the rare distinction of possibly being the only website/publication that has posted articles that actually offend me.
Well, to be fair, I'm sure plenty of other places post offensive articles that I haven't read, but Kotaku posts articles with links to pirated material. That's pretty unforgivable.
