Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a club can be used to hit an animal; steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions; rockets can be lobbed at a man).

"Right after getting back to Japan, [Miyamoto] suddenly said: "You know we're including golf now." Apparently he'd stated in an interview that this time round golf shots would be determined by the backswing, even though at that time a golf game didn't exist in any shape or form!"

The Lamentation of de Womens - Wherein many people talk about recent bannings. Also, a discussion about female community members, by female community members. UPDATE: Niero adds a comment about the state of things and Ron's banning on like page 8.
The Hug That Started a Phenomenon - The first hug post. Not that R3Y was starting a movement, but it was the first. Community members picked up this quick pic fun blog and ran with it.
On a related note, all of this is why I care about Destructoid. Regardless of evolution, Destructoid maintains this unprecedented, intimate, small site feel. Do the GameSpot blogs blow up lunacy in reaction to site management? Does Brian Crecente roll up on his site to explain how the community vibe has changed a little? Is there anywhere else you can get real talk from the site owner, or care enough to meet on a regular basis with other fans and community members of the site?
