The Daily Hotness: Friendship is ceased and desisted

Check out all the things Destructoid did today

Fan projects are a wonderful thing aren’t they? The endless stream of Skyrim mods, the updates of classic titles, the realization of offbeat fan dreams. And who can forget that the granddaddy of military shooters started as a fan mod. Well Hasbro doesn’t quite feel the same way, as they have taken official actions to shut down the fan project My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic. Don’t lose faith bronies, just wish upon a star and it may still come to be.

Today, we watch as the poor bastards that are the former staff of 38 Studios just can’t catch a break the rumor mill is a-churnin with possibilities on the release date for Bungie’s project Destiny, GameStop gets its panties in a twist about the possibility of next gen games not playing used products, and Sony admits a level of fault for the underwhelming sales performance of the Vita.
