The Weekend Hotness: Zelda Symphony marriage proposal

11:59 PM on 12.09.2012 // Tony Ponce

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Even though I already attended The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses in Los Angeles during E3 week, when I learned that the show would be performing in my home town of West Palm Beach, I knew I had to see it one more time. And my friends, I am so glad I did.

Though the Kravis Center is not as large a venue as the Greek Theater, this show was not without its share of surprises. The biggest one? Just before intermission, concert producer Jeron Moore took to the stage and asked that the spotlight be directed towards a young couple in the middle of the room. This guy gets down on one knee and proposes to his girlfriend, and the entire audience erupts in joyous celebration. My heart melted right then and there.

If only the orchestra had played the "Item Get" fanfare when he slipped the ring on her finger, though I'm afraid that would have been too much for anyone to bear.

This weekend's biggest news is undoubtedly the announcement of Street Fighter X Mega Man, an inkling that Capcom might still have a soft spot for the Blue Bomber. Allistair Pinsof also kills it with his in-depth coverage of BioShock Infinite. Elsewhere, I offer my impressions of the final issue of Nintendo Power, then I reminisce about Nintendo Power's Super Power Supplies catalog in the long-awaited return of my Offbeat Hall of Fame series.

That's not all! Casey Baker offers impressions of Trine 2 on Wii U, Indie Nation visits EvoLand, Sup, Holmes? welcomes White Whale Games, Storm Dain plays Sonic Adventure, we review The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Dragonborn and Midway Arcade Origins, WarMage Battlegrounds gets scoped, Communitoid reassembles for a Christmas special, and our community's own Elsa is my new adoptive mother.

As I leave to go home to a meal of chili mac and possibly to watch Alien 3, I leave you with this thought: Farts.

Question: What are the Persona Classics dlc sets like for Dancing All Night? Because I'm half interested, but if the characters used for the costumes aren't the best then eh... I know Nanako has a Aegis costume iirc but that's about it.
DeNA boss says that the Nintendo mobile games are coming soon. Hurry up and reveal the damn thing so I can know if I should be excited, interested, or disappointed?

There's a tumor going around the Episode II of Zeldas is getting a remaster. Meanwhile, Link's Awakening 3D would have been appreciated much more. [img][/img]

I was playing MGSV, doing a Mine Clearing Side Op and saw a bear. I pelted it with tranq bullets, few seconds later it ran into a mine and blew up, alerting the enemies in the process. Holy shit I love this game.

The wait for Dragon Quest Heroes is killing me. AR challenges in Arkham Knight do not fill the void! Not even Cat-woman's nice butt can fill the void. These 3 days will be a trial. :(

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.
