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.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.
