Man and videogame are wed, face and palm meet again

Man and videogame are wed, face and palm meet again photo



You know, when I posted a video of Love Plus a while back to show off its quirky dating sim charm I thought that would be the last we saw of the game here on Destructoid. After all, it wasn't coming to the West any time soon and it really seemed more like a Japanator thing anyway. Unbeknown to me the game became insanely popular and is even respected by two of my favorite game developers. Needless to say, Love Plus seems to be somewhat of a DS phenomenon, and I am proud to bring it back into the spotlight here at Dtoid.

However, I am not proud of the reason why I am doing it. A man -- a real man -- has legally married one of the characters in the game. Nene Anegasaki, a character from Love Plus, and an unnamed man were married in a church in Guam. The man brought his DS to the church and they are now legally married. The man has invited press to come to his reception on November 22, but unfortunately Mr. Destructoid's invite got lost in the mail.

The one place where a guy in a giant, metal helmet wouldn't be the oddest person around and we don't get invited... jerks. We'll just have to watch via webcam at 12 p.m. on November 22. If you need a crazy fix right this moment, you can head over to Japanator and see a picture of the church the wedding took place in and the wedding invitations.

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offb...more

Look at this bushel of happiness on the PoPoLoCrois Farm Story Japanese cover

Okay, I know no one cares that much about farm sims or things like that these days unless they're teeming with in-app purchases. Or PoPoLoCrois, for that matter. But for some reason, I really like both. I also really like the...more
