Smash Bros. 3DS secret characters are pretty easy to unlock

I feel like, for everyone worried about being "spoiled" on the Super Smash Bros. secret characters, there was at least half a person lamenting having to, you know, play the game in order to unlock all of the characters. ...

Metal Gear Solid V pre-TGS tease: Quiet jumps from a helicopter, goes invisible
by Steven Hansen

...And that's it. Well, there are some angry raccoon eyes at the end, too. 

Wait. Clearly the soldiers see the helicopter above them. And Quiet doesn't even turn invisible until she's mid-fall. Why even turn invisible at that point? To show off? It's like a needlessly flashy version of the Ghost in the Shell intro, which I would link except that it has boobs and also I can only find the Ghost in the Shell 2.0 video with CGI that makes my eyes sad.

I hope I have GitS on DVD somewhere because I really want to watch it now.

But I did just notice the handcuffs so maybe she was being carted away from Mother Base for some reason and then decided to show how cool she was when the helicopter is in the air? Who knows. I want this game

Beware of Super Smash Bros. secret character spoilers (update)

I remember some of voi got all upset when we (okay, me) posted pictures of the final evolution of the new Pokemon starters. The unlockable Smash Bros. characters are probably an even bigger "spoiler," then. So,...

Humanity, splendor, and wonder creep out of commercial systems photo
Humanity, splendor, and wonder creep out of commercial systems
by Steven Hansen

Late Saturday night and Sunday morning, I did a 101-block long, 7-8 mile walk horizontally through San Francisco, like a scalping of the city's northern districts. It started downtown on the bay at AT&T Park, where the Giants went to play baseball after abandoning Candlestick.

Candlestick was walking distance from where I grew up. My mom worked there for a while. Only baseball games. She often brought home practiced and played balls stained with grass and infield dirt. Years ago, driving home from Candlestick, from a 49ers dismantling of Seattle, I was flipped over on the freeway by a drunk driver, trying to figure out if the blood on my jeans was mine (it wasn't). I haven't been back there since. Football tickets got too expensive. 

The San Francisco 49ers abandoned Candlestick this year, too. The San Francisco 49ers now play in arid Santa Clara, in a stadium named after a brand of jeans, though ownership kept the "San Francisco" in its name. It's branding.

The team is now in Silicon Valley and closer to a higher economic class (not out in "scary" -- minority-packed -- Visitacion Valley/Hunter's Point). My landlord hasn't missed a 49ers game in over 40 years, but he almost lost his season tickets in the move because of how much the organization has jacked up the prices. My rent wasn't enough to keep him on the 50 yard line, in the middle of the action. Now he's in an endzone corner. The stadium is sold out, of course, with the $110-$479 single seats now being resold for around $600 a ticket. Dropping over $100 in the second hand market gets you standing room only in the nosebleeds.

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [9/6] photo
The best stuff on Destructoid this week [9/6]
by Steven Hansen

What are you going to cook this weekend? I've been on point. Parmigiana di pollo, arroz y salsa verde para tacos, carne asada tacos, guacamole, pesto, roasted chicken and bell pepper, burgers. Going to do up some more fresh pesto this weekend because I don't want the pine nuts to go south ($20 for a bag!)

You should cook something, too.

Lot of post-PAX previews and general clean up this week, along with a follow up piece of ace investigative reporting. 

Here's last week's post. Let's begin anew.

[We post a lot of articles here at Destructoid. The endless, ouroboros news cycle has us burning the snake at both ends, which will ultimately push big news, thoughtful original pieces, and all sorts of other great content off of the front page. Check here every Saturday for my attempt to rectify that.]

That expensive, gold Monster Hunter statue? Doesn't have a lil dick!

Madden 15 is an extra scummy ripoff on PS3 and 360

EA usually saves its most blatant hack jobs for consoles where it's less likely to draw ire.  FIFA 14 on Vita was a reskin of FIFA 13 on Vita which was a reskin of FIFA Soccer. Before you snark about "aren't al...

Madden 15 on PS3 and 360 is bad garbage that EA shouldn't get away with releasing.

Alright then, onto current-gen.
