Have you all been blasting through Magikarp Jump? What do you think of it? I've put together my thoughts on the game before Magikarp JUMPING to the conclusion that it's another nice filler title if you approach it with the right mindset. Your thoughts? :)



 
 
 

In my quest to determine the ultimate anime girl gf material aka WAIFU, I've also been thinking about who the supreme WAIFU of video games may be. Samus, Yuna, Cortana, Birdo... who is your #1 pick?



 
 
 

Most underrated N64 game? In my opinion, Aidyn Chronicles! Cool RPG with an interesting story and unique battle mechanics. I really loved this game even though there were some haters. ;)


 
 
 

Dragonball Ball Super happy meals at McDonald's in Japan, you say? LED dragonbawls, you say? Why yes, I do believe it's time to feast on tender cheeseburgery goodness for the next week 🍔🍟 PS: would love more DB games in the vein of the GBA games! Yo


 
 
 

We live in a strange world. What do you think of the artwork for the new Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle, ASSUMING that this leaked art is actually real?


 
 
 

Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement AGAIN to work on a new film, which made me think: what Ghibli movie would be best suited to a game? I think Castle in the Sky is a no-brainer! ^^ Would love to see more Ghibli involvement on the game front.



 
 
 

Relocated a great series of lectures delivered by Warren Spector at the University of Texas. I highly recommend checking them out as you'll get a lot of very cool insights into the game industry!



 
 
 

2004 GTTV Dreamcast documentary - a great watch. What do you think of the Dreamcast? Did you own one?



 
 
 

What's your top pick for a game that should be made into an anime? There actually was a 1997 OVA of Fire Emblem but I think this series would lend itself to well to a proper run in anime form!

 
 
 

How much overlap do you think there is between the gaming and anime communities? Trying to get a rough handle on this, as there is definitely a large segment that enjoys crossover. Curious what your thoughts are!

 
 
 

For late night gaming I like to put on some tunes like this. How about you?



 
 
 

Can we get some hype in the comments for this Pokemon EDM hotness? Love that drop at 0:53. Just what's needed to get ready stacked up for a big night in Osaka. :)



 
 
 
 
 

There's a little bit of Happy Mask Salesman in all of us. 🎭


 
 
 

Which Harvest Moon partner(s) do you tend to pick? I always go for Karen / the Karen archetype. Saucy + like to drink beer. <3


 
 
 

The Piano Collections version of this song is simply stunning. I love the gradual build-up to the finale. What are some of your favourite piano versions of game themes/tunes in recent years?



 
 
 

QUESTION (^^) I came back to posting on Destructoid after a few years of inactivity and I don't see the rich text editor that used to exist for blogging. Is this somewhere to be found? If not, is there a post with some tips on making posts not look awful?

 
 
 

Hey, I'm Charles. I live on a mountain in Japan and love to start off the mornings with these epic tracks as I eat breakfast and look out towards the ocean. Anyone have any favourites tunes from FF15? Somnus and Luna are probably my top picks. ^^



 
 
 

Hey guys, I haven't posted on here in quite a while! Is anyone hyped for Pokemon Movie 20's reimagining of the Indigo League or do you think it will disappoint? Also, they're running some fun movie contests here in Japan. ^^ https://youtu.be/ILhu1VuRnWg
