The Daily Hotness: Space captain Starkey

11:59 PM on 12.04.2012 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Our own affable, drunk-emailing Daniel Starkey (pictured above, looking a bit like a made up Eric Bana) recently wrote an incredibly personal piece for Gameranx on his connection with the Mass Effect series and his relationship to it and his science-fiction-loving mother. I warn you, it's quite an emotional read, in which Starkey, essentially role-playing FemShep as his mother, comes to some weighty understandings about his mother and their relationship. 

I can vouch for Starkey's Mass Effect media blackout during GDC earlier this year and while he didn't give me all these details, my minute friend's deep love for the series was evident. Also, you see that Gameranx byline of his? Let's speculate what the "C." stands for! I say "chiasmus." Or maybe "celery." "Cornelius?" (Good job, homie!)

Today, the sprightly Jim Sterling review the ill named Transformers Prime: The Game, the incipient Steven Hansen enjoyed Lara's cute boots -- yes, boots -- in the Tomb Raider reboot, we started a contest for tickets to Ümloud!

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"
