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

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.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

Someone is trying to log into my Dtoid account. I keep getting emails notifying me of bad password attempts. What?

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!
