The Weekend Hotness: Happy 25th birthday, Mega Man!

11:59 PM on 12.16.2012 // Tony Ponce

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Even though December 17 has just begun for us, Japan has been living up Mega Man's 25th birthday for the past 15 hours. In that time, Mega Man Megamix / Gigamix manga author Hitoshi Ariga shared this wonderful little art piece celebrating the event. D'awww!

I myself have been doing the anniversary thing all weekend. You've no doubt already seen my massive Mega Man infographic of every series entry in existence as well as the music list that Jayson Napolitano and I collaborated on. I've got one more big treat in store for you cats tomorrow afternoon, so look out for that! And don't forget to download Street Fighter X Mega Man once it goes live on Capcom-Unity!

The biggest story this weekend, however, was the fallout of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the media's spastic urge to blame anyone and anything for the disaster, regardless of silly things like "facts." That's the extent of my political input; I'll leave the rest for you to discuss amongst yourselves.

Elsewhere, the first episode of Teenage Pokémon is live; Sup, Holmes? welcomes James Kochalka, creator of the web cartoon SuperF*ckers; and community member Jinx 01 has a promoted blog about how he likes to treat the Steam service as a game.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Plague Knight is pretty rad, even when represented by mediocre artists [img][/img]

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

[img][/img] Can you imagine if greedy aliens stole all YOUR snacks? I don't even know how I'd handle it honestly. I don't even want to think about it.

Great. YouTube took down my nude re - enactment of She-Wolf. Again. Fuck you Shakira. Let my art shine.

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.

Anyone else having issues with italics in blogs? I went to save a draft, and when it loaded the post-saving creature I was working on, the entire text had been italicized and I now am unable to change it back. I've been possessed!
So that's $50 for the season pass on top of the game already costing sixty at launch, plus the monthly subscription fee for playing online on consoles. All in the name of getting the full experience! VYDEO_GEAMEZ!!

tired but I gotta work. Would rather play more MGS5.

Races have been pretty intense, and the last Moto3 race in MotoGP 14 should have been too. Emphasis on the word [i]should[/i]. The AI riders ignored infringements in the last race, meaning everyone was disqualified except me. Derp.
Batthink avatarBatthink
Been playing MotoGP 14 on my Vita. A bit buggy (some menus you need to press circle to go back, then cross to select to proceed, otherwise nothing happens. And motorcycling helmets riding motorcycles in-race), but I've got the sweet spot in difficulty.

Daily VGM #21 (Witcher 1) - Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] I think this theme does a fantastic job capturing the feel of The Witcher 3. Epic, but also somber at times.

Sorry to shamelessly self-promote, but I wanted to share a piece that went up over the weekend with ya'll Hopefully it's an enjoyable read! [url][/url]
