: Report: Xbox One is 'for babies,' says high school freshman

In an interview conducted with Destructoid, high school freshman and East Aurora High videogame savant Chad Roberts commented on the long-term viability of the Xbox One platform, referring to it as "a gay console for babies" and "a waste of money for idiots."

Roberts also had much to say about the console's line-up of exclusives. "Yeah, Titanfall is basically shitty Call of Duty. And Call of Duty is an Xbox game, so that's shitty too. Halo 6 looks gay. I dunno, Forza looks okay. Not as good as DriveClub, but whatever." When asked how he felt about downloadable exclusives like D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, Roberts had little opinion about the Xbox One's digital offerings. "D4? Is that like four dicks or something?"

The 13-year-old, who was still looking for a date to the spring formal, seemed more positive about the future of the PlayStation 4. "The PS4 is fuckin' dope, man. It's so cool. Have you seen Killzone? Those guns are sick. It [the PlayStation 4] also looks really sexy, not like that dumb box shit. It also plays used games, too. Did you know that you can't play used games on the Xbox? I hear it's gotta be always online too." Roberts also seemed confused as to the relevance of the PlayStation Vita. "What's that?" he asked.

Overall, Roberts seemed optimistic about the future of videogame consoles as a business. "Once everyone stops playing the Xbox None (Roberts requested I underline and bold the 'none' in the previous sentence) and buys a PS4, we're gonna get more awesome PS4 games. Anyway, if you see puberty walking around, tell him that I'm looking for him!"

: Maybe We'd Be Better Off Playing Ikea's Fake Video Games

While browsing his local Ikea for functional furniture at reasonable prices, Redditor voodoocode snapped a shot of some of the company's upcoming lineup of fake placeholder video games. I would pay $100 for Grand-ma's Auto.

: Rumor: Ness amiibo leaked, selling on Chinese auction site

A Ness amiibo has been spotted for sale on a Chinese auction site and appears to be in European packaging. Currently it sits at about $55, though I don't imagine that price will stay there for long.

Nintendo has yet to release any pictures or information about a Ness amiibo, so buyer beware.

: Destructoid saves the world! Sorry, Kyle

Last time on Destructoid Saves the World, I looked around the map, panicked, to find that Kyle MacGregor had died. I didn't even see him go. It was tragic. Brett Makedonski is actually en route to my home at the moment, so maybe he'll show up and be able to co-pilot and keep our boys safe.

Let's check in on our squad (Kmac RIP), which is filling out nicely and going to need some community/viewer additions soon. We've a heavy in Chris Carter, a sniper in Jordan Devore, Wett Brett Makedonski as an assault. Holmes, Dixon, and Brittany are there, too, I think. It's been a while. I've forgotten. And now I'm sure I'm bound to get them all killed.

Oh well.

Let's continue our normal, Iron Man (no save scumming) game of XCOM (with Enemy Within expansion) and see if I can save the world with a squad full of those most suited for the job, people who write about videogames because they had one too many felonies to join the military.

: Binding of Isaac: 10 tips for making The Lost playthrough easier

[Dtoid community blogger Corduroy Turtle offers some strategies for achieving 100% completion in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. What a guy! --Mr Andy Dixon]

The concept of difficulty is likely different for everyone. Personally, I want to feel a real sense of accomplishment when I beat a game. I thirst for near-impossible challenges and I certainly don't appreciate having my hand held. I want to feel like I've really earned it; like I've suffered. I've beaten the original NES Ninja Gaiden without dying. I've battled my way through Hell in Spelunky and defeated King Yama multiple times. I made Super Meat Boy my bitch. Though I know skill is a factor, I think the fact that I'm just really goddamn stubborn helps a lot too. Once I set my sights on something, I can accomplish just about anything. Eventually.

The latest challenge I set for myself seemed simple enough: unlock all of the items in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. For those who are unfamiliar with the game, the items Isaac comes across are selected randomly from a pool of "unlocked" items. Some are unlocked by beating the game a certain number of times or completing specific challenges. Others require the late-game bosses to be beaten with each individual character. This is something I did in the original The Binding of Isaac and I was looking forward to doing it again. Sure, it was bound to be difficult, but I absolutely had to see everything this big, beautiful game had to offer. No excuses.

What I didn't know at the time was there was a super-secret playable character hidden in Rebirth that required a series of obscure deaths in a specific order to unlock. Luckily, you can use Seeds for the first three steps, which is beyond helpful. This is something that was buried deep within the game; something that creator Ed McMillen hoped would take months, if not years, of piecing together clues to discover. Unfortunately for him, a few savvy gamers peered into the code of the game and figured it out in less than a week. Welp, that's the world we live in.

: Mod adds local co-op to Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PC

After reports of Capcom pulling a switcharoo on the local co-op feature of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for the PC, a mod has been released to temporarily fill that gap. Currently, the mod requires players to use gamepads and only works in local story mode -- Raid Mode support hasn't been added yet.

Personally, the lack of split-screen was the only reason I didn't buy the PC version. If they add Raid Mode, then I might even double dip because the game is that good. Players can grab the mod over at the Steam Community.

: Adam Savage's Replica Hedge Maze From The Shining Is Scarily Accurate

When Mythbusters' Adam Savage isn't, uh, busting myths, he spends his time crafting amazing replicas of movie props, among other hobbies. This time around it's the hedge maze from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, prompted by Savage's disappointment in what should have been the "official" version.

: Experience Points .06: No More Heroes

Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a part of the soundtrack, a gameplay mechanic, a line of dialogue, or anything else about the game that is particularly noteworthy and/or awesome.

This series will no doubt contain spoilers for the games being discussed, so keep that in mind if you plan on playing the game for the first time.

This entry is all about No More Heroes. Feel free to share some of your own favorite things about the game in the comments!

: Inti Creates' weird shooter Gal Gun is getting a sequel

Gal Gun, one of the most bizarre Japanese imports I've ever played, is getting a sequel.

Inti Creates is making a follow-up to its bishoujo rail shooter, which first launched on Xbox 360 in 2011 and came to PlayStation 3 the following year. The experience sees a barrage of lovestruck schoolgirls charge at the player, who will need to incapacitate the ladies at bay by blasting them with powerful pheromones. Yes, seriously.

The announcement was made at Inti Creates Fan Festa 2015, where the studio also announced Azure Strike Gunvolt 2. The new Gal Gun game is expected to release later this year.

: Thanks For the Net Neutrality, Oligarchs

"Net neutrality" will be the law of the land following the Federal Communications Commission's vote to reclassify broadband Internet services as public utilities. Please take some time this week to thank the outspoken citizens who made this possible. These heroes of the open Internet are regular folk, just like you and me, with names like Microsoft, eBay, Facebook, Google and Amazon. Congrats to a major industry on its lobbying victory!
