The Daily Hotness: You can't get in the Boom Boom Bar

Check out everything Destructoid did today

So Nintendo's got a weird eShop system in Europe that prevents full-grown adults from downloading 18+ rated games during the day. It's like a Nintendo night club. You'll have to put the moves on Big Bertha if you want to gain access.

Today, Destructoid took over the VGAs and rigged the ballots (not really). We did learn that folks really like The Walking Dead, and that Dark Souls II is a thing. Elsewhere, we've got reviews for Uncharted: Fight for Fortune, PlanetSide 2, and Mass Effect 3: Omega; we give BioShock Infinite a spin; Xbox 360 sold gangbusters in November; Rayman Legends has a solid release date; and Pachter's being Pachter.

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

Is there any real difference between the PS3 and the PS4 versions of Valkyria Chronicles?

Voting for Broforce made me think of the most American person that could ever exist. President Michael Wilson!

By the way, that IGPX collection is a new release. It's the first time the show is available in a complete package, and the first time it's been available in any format in about 10 years. [url]http://amzn.to/20JSMCd[/url]

This is your daily reminder that Taxi Driver is the best movie ever and if you disagree then all I can say is: God, you're square.

I love when someone at work tries to claim you screwed up on something and it completely backfires on them. I try to help them save face afterwards, but secretly I'm like...

I still love Tearaway Unfolded despite the shit pacing and hell yeah I'm going for that plat. It'll be my 2nd plat, first since Sly 2 Remastered back in 2012. So it's been a while. gotta beat the game first tho :P

Tearaway Unfolded's final level is my least favorite kind. Life is Strange-esque linear path (through a void) of moments from the game. Bleh.

Gravity Rush Remastered looks reallllllyyyyyy nice. Video and screenshots didn't quite do it justice. Seeing it in person is much better.

We are T-7 days until the release of Street Fighter V! There will be a blog released on the February 15, only one day before the release. This blog is about reflecting on Street Fighter IV.

Can good videogame music sugarcoat a game so much that we forget it's a bad game?

My Wii U came back from repairs... It does not recognize me anymore. It does not remember anything - Xenoblade, Smash, everything. Also, the game disc that was trapped when I sent it is in a separate sleeve, cracked. RIP data.

Damn, my 26" monitor just crapped out on me. S'what I get for buying knockoff brands I guess. Back to the 19" non-HD monitor for me.

I miss mapping :( I was thinking about learning GameMaker, but now I'm leaning toward Unreal Engine 4, maybe to map for the new UT?

I've spent the past 3 hours with that Lost Planet spinoff EX Troopers after finding it on sale for $20US on Amazon. It would've been great if Capcom had released it here. Or if they decided 2 turn that IP into Monster Hunter w/ guns set in an open world
