The Daily Hotness: My kingdom for a Shovel Knight box

Check out everything Destructoid did today

With less than three days to go, Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight Kickstarter has already blown past the $200K mark and met all its original stretch goals. So the boys had to come up with even more stretch rewards, one of which is a physical box you can "store" your Shovel Knight "cartridge" inside of. It's nothing more than a folded piece of cardboard, but I want it so bad.

Today, Spencer Hayes and Steven Hansen are the worst Spaceteam crew ever, Chris Carter frowns at the microtransaction-laden Tekken Card Tournament, Ubisoft is slowly working its way back into our good graces after delaying Rayman Legends, prospective students can enroll into Monster Hunter Community College, Deep Silver is pretty full of itself, and there's actually an ending to the old cell phone classic Snake.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

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.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

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.
