The Weekend Hotness: Something, something, VGAs…

I had no idea the VGAs were going down until I visited the front page and noticed fifty bazillion new stories in the span of a few hours. I really couldn’t care less, so here’s Polish Meal Time.

In this weekend’s episode of Destructoid Ball Z, the Metal Gear rises to platinum status, Max Scoville steels his heart against the blades of self-reflection, Mega Man uses music to promote drug dealing and substance abuse, and Shigeru Miyamoto feels the need for speed.
