'Sup, Destructoid.

I had an interesting revelation last weekend when I took my PS3 over to a friend's house about LittleBigPlanet's DLC. As you may recall I picked up a copy during that crazy GoGamer sale, but I didn't realize at the time that they were the PAL version. This isn't a problem for the most part since the game is region free and runs perfectly fine on my system. What I learned the hard way however, is that for some reason which is beyond my comprehension, all DLC for the game is region locked. In my PAL copy I can't run around with a turkey on my head (downloaded during the Thanksgiving holiday), can't wear an astronaut suit or a Lunar new year outfit, despite having the costumes on my hard drive. Presumably, this means that the paid DLC such as the Metal Gear pack is also incompatible with a game which is not from your own country. I hadn't seen this information anywhere else, so I hope it's helpful to someone out there.



I had a bit of a backslide yesterday, and in a moment of weakness accepted a friend's offer to reinstate my World of Warcraft account. I hadn't played since late Burning Crusade, and a lot of things have changed... mostly for the better, but some changes are just bizarre to me. My main character was a paladin, and their combat mechanics got a complete overhaul since the last time I had played. Have any of you come back to a multiplayer game after a long absence to find things completely different? If so, let me hear about it in the comments.

In honor of tonight's contest, I'm gonna attempt to recap everyone's blogs with just five words. This isn't easy for me, if you're a regular to this page you know I'm a loquacious bastard. Let's give it a shot though...

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
