: News Post: As Father And Son

Tycho: I occasionally try to utilize my notoriety to get shit. I feel my alignment shifting when I do, a grinding pressure, a sense that perhaps my momma raised me wrong after all, so I don’t try to run game with great frequency. In the context I was raised in it’s of a piece with “putting on airs,” like literacy. When I attempt to use my Ultimate, I tell you here; as often as not, it doesn’t work at all. At PAX West, a few months before the official release of Star Wars: Destiny, I had a chance to drop into a demo during the show and it…

: The Last Guardian's Boy Exemplifies Youthful Exuberance

: Conan and Terry Crews play Battlefield 1 and pet bunnies on Clueless Gamer

I don't make it a habit to see every single one of Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segments -- some of them come across as too forced -- but with actor Terry Crews guesting on this Battlefield 1 segment, I had to watch. Had to! Crews is just so endearing and as he mentions in the intro, he built a gaming PC this year to get closer to his son (here's one of the many feel-good videos to come out of that project).

Conan had heard of Battlefield 1 before and was "genuinely excited" to try it, presumably given his interest in history. After going through the rather great opener in which you take control of numerous soldiers who inevitably succumb to the battle, Conan related the experience to a game he knows well.

"This is like a Pac-Man where after you eat the dot, they tell you when the dot was born. They show you a picture of the dot's mother, and then they tell you that the dot had a little child dot that it'll never see again. And then they play that sad music." The cure for sadness? A bunny break!

: Capcom hopes its return to horror with Resident Evil 7 will sell five million launch copies

So Square Enix is halfway there with its five million Final Fantasy XV sales worldwide (it wants 10 million), but Capcom is going for a much smaller (but still relatively AAA) target of four million with Resident Evil 7.

Yep, come January the publisher is hoping to clear four million copies worldwide on its first day, which marketing director Antoine Molant calls the "the biggest Capcom game we are releasing on new machines," speaking to MCV. Capcom is "confident" that they can push that much, and that pre-orders were "above expectations."

I'm still hoping the thing is actually good. All the vertical slices and early preview builds have done their job in wowing people, but seeing if it can actually carrying a tune through the entire campaign and not resort to boulder punching (I'd love to see some camp to be honest) remains to be seen.

: Wild Guns Reloaded confirmed for US and Europe, is getting physical

Wild Guns Reloaded is coming to Japan in the next few days, but the west is getting it too!

Natsume has confirmed to Destructoid that Reloaded is arriving on the PS4 on December 20 in both North America and Europe, digitally and physically. Wait what? Yep, the publisher is partnering up with three retailers (Amazon, Play-Asia, and Video Games Plus) to deliver a physical edition of Reloaded, which offer the North American edition. The other two outlets are selling it now, and Amazon's listing will go up on launch day.

If you haven't tried the original yet now is a good time, as the new iteration looks like an amazing co-op game, and has a few extra modes and characters to boot.

: Surprise, Pewdiepie's channel deletion threat was a troll

Well, he technically deleted a channel, I guess.

So that obvious publicity stunt from top YouTuber Pewdiepie came to a close today, and after reaching 50 million subscribers, he revealed that the entire thing was a joke.

In the video below he claims that "media everywhere" reported that his deletion as fact, despite that nearly everyone thought that it was a joke or a troll, before deleting his alternate channel of Jack septiceye2. It's a broad stroke not unlike a lot of traditional media paints for YouTubers that doesn't account for context, so it's fair game, I suppose! If Pewds is a thing you like, you can keep on liking him, and sleep well knowing that he won't be giving up his millionaire status just yet.

Is Pewdiepie the Andy Kaufman of our generation? Slam that "subscribe" button and find out, guys. He's going for 100 million subscribers next.

: Pokemon Generations comes to Japan, weeks after English version

Remember when the US got Metal Gear Solid 2 over two weeks before Japan? It was a huge thing back then, but it happens more often than you'd think even today.

The first six episodes of Pokemon Generations, the new miniseries, are now available in Japanese by way of the show's official YouTube account. If you absolutely positively must watch your anime in Japanese, head on over and give it a look, or just watch the first episode below.

So far I'm really digging the slight worldbuilding this series is doing, especially the second 'sode that has Looker in it -- who's had a major prescence in the last two iteration's endgame events.
