Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I hope you're all safe and sound following PAX 2013! I got to drunkenly shout moist pleasantries in the vicinity of a bunch of you, and that was absolutely lovely. For those of you who missed it, you have my deepest sympathies.
Today on the show, we discuss Dragon Age: Inquisition, and how it looks incredible, how Gearbox is turning Hardware: Shipbreakers into Homeworld: Shipbreakers, and has two brand new IPs in the works. The Xbox One supports up to eight controllers, the Xbox Live Marketplace has been renamed, and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has absolutely wrecked shop with the Kickstarter for his new game, Mighty No. 9. There's a new Grand Theft Auto V trailer... and then some other announcements.
The exciting news: Niero and company have announced Destructoid HUGE, a premium membership program for the site, which will give members ad-free site access, discounts on merch, automatic contest entry, exclusive content, and more, for a measly $2.99 a month, or $29.99 a year. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and considering how much Destructoid rules for free, just imagine how cool it'll be when there's money rolling in. It's only a matter of time until there's a whole portal full of exlusive Jonathan Holmes sexy muscleman pin-ups.
The sad news: The Destructoid Show is coming to an end. Tara and I will continue to crank out stuff full-time over on Rev3Games, but we're parting ways with our beloved red-eyed robot overlord Mr. Destructoid.
Destructoid's founder, and the man who got me my start in this kickass industry wrote up his thoughts, which you can read after the break.
It's a bummer, and I'll miss doing the show. Once I get my thoughts together, I'll write up something over in the Cblogs. You guys are all amazing, and thanks for watching me figure out how to behave in front of a camera over these last three years. It's been a blast.
