The Daily Hotness: Friendship is ceased and desisted

11:59 PM on 02.08.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out all the things Destructoid did today

Fan projects are a wonderful thing aren't they? The endless stream of Skyrim mods, the updates of classic titles, the realization of offbeat fan dreams. And who can forget that the granddaddy of military shooters started as a fan mod. Well Hasbro doesn't quite feel the same way, as they have taken official actions to shut down the fan project My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic. Don't lose faith bronies, just wish upon a star and it may still come to be.

Today, we watch as the poor bastards that are the former staff of 38 Studios just can't catch a break the rumor mill is a-churnin with possibilities on the release date for Bungie's project Destiny, GameStop gets its panties in a twist about the possibility of next gen games not playing used products, and Sony admits a level of fault for the underwhelming sales performance of the Vita.

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.
Barry Kelly avatarBarry Kelly
I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
ChillyBilly avatarChillyBilly
OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
RadicalYoseph avatarRadicalYoseph
@Jed Whitaker I might be missing something, but does the race of the characters really matter? I'm white and if every VG character was black I wouldn't care. It's skin color... that's it. I guess others care more than me about this stuff though.

Who is your favorite Jewish game character? I'm pretty sure BJ Blaskowicz is (right?), so I'm going with him.
