The Daily Hotness: My kingdom for a Shovel Knight box

11:59 PM on 04.10.2013 // Tony Ponce

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.

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.
