Destructoid, you mean this much to me

[Marche100 <3 Destructoid and Destructoid <3 him back. --Mr Andy Dixon]

I was just a part of the PAX Prime 2013 avatar adoption, where my avatar gets swept off to Washington so that I can be there in spirit, because I can't go myself. (That's college. Sucks, I know.) I didn't know about the avatar adoption tradition until Andy put up a blog about it, so naturally, this all came as a very pleasant surprise, seeing as it's my lifelong dream to go to an expo like that.

Anyway, you guys just keep on giving. Give give give give give. I think it's time you know just how much you're appreciated and just how important you are to me.

Destructoid, you guys made it on The Wall. Well done.

That picture up there? That's my bedroom wall. It's reserved only for things I truly care about. Things that I want to wake up and see every day. Things that make me smile. These are limited mostly to: 1) drawings of mine that took a lot of effort, and 2) posters of games I love. Well, I just got this crazy idea to rip some of that crap down and put you guys up there.

I have no idea why I used a Gilligan's Island font. It just looked good.

So, let's start with the avatar adoption thing. That's what this whole idea spawned out of, after all. I really appreciate all you guys taking the time to get a picture with my avatar (as well as the five others grouped with it), and I really have to thank Andy for adopting me in the first place.

Now, I'm not crazy. Trust me on this. I put up those pictures on my wall so I can see them whenever I'm in my room. I also gave some of them titles and drew a little doodle under them. Wall of pictures incoming!

So, I don't know if you guys know this, but Destructoid is the highlight of my day. Seriously. I have 99 problems, but only two things in the world make me feel completely at peace. My work study at college (because helping people makes you forget your own troubles and makes you feel good), and coming to Destructoid, whether it just be browsing the articles, posting in the comments, or leafing through the forum.

You guys feel like a second family to me. You were there for me when I made that blog a while back venting, you're always willing to share a laugh, and you guys are some of the most friendly and accepting people I've ever had the pleasure of talking to. Words escape me. I mean, what can I say?

Destructoid, you are the light of my life. And for that, I couldn't just stop at putting up pictures of the avatar adoption. So I went a step further.

So, as you can see, this kind of spiraled out of control. It took forever to do all this. But that's OK. I'm glad I did this.

Just seeing pictures of you guys makes me smile. It makes me happy. Whether it be you, in actuality, or your avatar. You guys don't just have any place on my wall. You have the spot right next to my bed, where I lay my head down at night. It's also where I work on my homework/study and do most of my stressing out and stuff.

You guys have the spot on my wall where I'm going to need you most. When I feel like the world is crashing down around me, I can always turn to these pictures and smile. Feel the warmth creep through my every fiber, knowing that, even if the world actually does come crashing down, at least I got the chance to know you all.

My only regret in all my time here on Destructoid has been today, and that is the fact that I can't put all of you on my wall. As much as I want to, I don't think my printer will allow it.

So, hopefully now you got a glimpse into how much you all mean to me, and how much Destructoid means to me. It's not just another videogame blog website. You all know that. It's a community. It's a family. And I swear that someday I'll make it to PAX and get the chance to enjoy all of your company in person, even if it kills me.

Destructoid, thank you. Don't change. And don't you ever leave me.

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

Screw Bloodborne. I finally managed to overcome not tearing up while listening to the entirety of Never More. Git gud! [youtube][/youtube]

you know what's not okay? scalpers with 10 copies of fire emblem fates SE on ebay for $200+. and no one is saying anything.

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.
