Daily Hotness: Can't stop these pirates

12:00 AM on 09.05.2009 // 8BitBrian

Turning off twitter is the only thing I can do to avoid hearing everyone talk about the great time they've been having at PAX. Well, watching through the entirety of the first season of Black Lagoon in one sitting helped too. See? I managed to work in the weeaboo stuff easily!

One of our top stories today was clearly Ready to Friday BioWare talking about how they deal with piracy. I'd have to agree, incentives like limited editions are probably one of the best ways to get people to buy their stuff. Atlus has been pushing that route hard with Demon's Soul, and I think it'll work well for them. Won't stop the Lagoon Trading Company, but it's not like much can.

The big story, though, is that the Japanese Prime Minister's wife is batshit insane. She eats the sun for nourishment. And she was abducted by aliens. You need to read it to believe it.

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!
