The Destructoid Show: The Next Generation

2:05 PM on 11.11.2013 // Max Scoville

The Return of The Max

Well, well. Look who's come crawling back. ME.

If you guys have been keeping track, The Destructoid Show came to an end two months ago, and I announced my departure from Revision3 about one month ago. And today, in an effort to further confuse my extended family who were never entirely sure what my job was to begin with, I'm proud to announce that I am back with Destructoid, full-time, as their head warlock of video-related crap -- which will include, in some form, a resurrection of the Destructoid Show.

To kick this off, please join me this Friday at 3:30 PM Pacific time (-8:00 GMT) on YouTube for a LIVE Destructoid Show. Y'know, for old time's sake.

I realize this is all a bit confusing, but the important thing to take away from this is that I'm back where I got my start, and Hamza and Niero have said "do your thing," and literally handed me the keys to the Destructoid offices (well, I actually have to go pick them up tomorrow, but you get the idea.) This is both exciting and terrifying for me, because I'm actually in charge of some stuff, and nobody ever leaves me in charge of stuff.

To quell your curiosity and ease your confusion, here's a short FAQ:

Q: What about Tara? Is she coming back too?

A: No. Tara's still doing her thing over at Rev3Games, and she's also doing a science show with Anthony Carboni called Hard Science. Go check it out, because they build hovercrafts, and you should always support hovercrafts.

Q: What about your hit podcast, The Comedy Button, I thought you were making videos for that full-time?

A: That's still very much a thing, but making it a full-time gig while everyone else involved is busy with real jobs is tricky, especially when those real jobs involve videogames, and there are two new consoles coming out this month. 

Q: Are you going to bring back Max Scoville's Study Hall?

A: Despite what the title might suggest, Revision3 owns the rights to Max Scoville's Study Hall. I have a "spiritual successor" type project in the works which will hopefully fill that void.

Q: Are you gonna do a Gundam episode?

A: Yes.

Q: You need a haircut.

A: I agree.

If you have other questions, I'll happily answer them in the comments. It's good to be back!

Photos and videos are back on quickposts but clipping on some devices. We're going to add a new quickpost editing interface so photos and videos can only be displayed one way (a la twitter) to solve this. Also, a My cBlog link was added to your user menu

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.

After reading a blog post about DMC4 I decided to watch all the cutscenes on Youtube. Tried the games years ago and couldn't get into them, but man that shit was stylish. Likeable protagonists, intense drama... still think DmC reboot wasn't that bad tho.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?
