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.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
