The Weekend Hotness: I'm not avail, you taco nazi

Check out everything Destructoid did today

I did not attend PAX East this year, but WayForward is remaking DuckTales, so how could I possibly be anything but happy? I got so excited, I had to go back and listen to the hilariously transliterated version of the Finnish DuckTales theme song. How is that for a blast from the Internet past?

I also remembered that I own the Game Boy version of DuckTales, so I played that this weekend. If you've never played it, I suggest you stick to the NES original. The Game Boy version does its best to emulate the feel of its older brother, but a bunch of little things are just... off.

Anyway, check out the PAX roundup below. Hope you all bought me a bunch of goodies! Mail them to me at your leisure!

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.

5ish hours into Phantom Pain and it is absolutely glorious. This is truly A Hideo Kojima game.

It looks like my job at PAX didn't work out (For a variety of reasons). Have fun at the convention, everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdqoNKCCt7A

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!
