What’s in the Box?!


 
 

Just getting back into Gunpla, going through kits I’ve had for literal years (starting with HG Atlus Gundam) and my God Hands broke. I saw on Hobbylink Japan these were discontinued. Are these still THE nippers to have or is there a newer/better version

 
 

Update on my Hori Split Pad Pro: Seems to be a problem with the rails on my switch. Tried them on my girlfriend’s Switch and they worked totally fine. May end up caving and getting an OLED but now I’m worried the same thing will happen.

Anybody else use the Hori Split Pad Pro for the Switch, and have issues with it? I have an OG Switch and randomly the Controller will disconnect and I have to kind of put pressure on it to connect. Tried shooting compressed air but it didn’t help.

 
 

Pokemon Direct on Sunday and we still have a Persona announcement scheduled for this month. Are we finally getting the Pokesona Crossover we’ve all been clamoring for?

 
 

Well, due to the hype and insane amount of positive reviews, I preordered Elden Ring. Not sure if I will keep it though. I just started Cyberpunk & have been enjoying it, and I’m not usually one for overly difficult games and never played a FromSoft gam

 
 

Only need 6 more Pokémon in Arceus. One is by finding all the wisps (obnoxious) and the other 5 are from time-Space distortions (more obnoxious). I really want to catch them all but this is a huge slog.

 
 

Watched Nightmare Alley and Malignant over the weekend. Both were not what I was expecting at all, but both were also pretty good.

Work has been ridiculously slow all week and of course it’s the week I’m scheduled to be in the office. Next week when I’m working from home will probably be insane.

 
 

After the Bungie/Sony Deal, I think we may see Sony buy a big publisher for the IP. The Bungie deal keeps mentioning multimedia and Sony recently bought Crunchyroll and Funimation. I think they want TV/Movies. Konami & Square could give them IP for that.

 
 

I have a $30 Best Buy certificate that expires next week so I caved and preordered Pokémon. As a fan since Red and Blue whose enthusiasm for the franchise has been all over the place, I’m pretty excited for this one. Seems like what I’ve wanted.

 
 

My second most played playstation game last year was The Avengers at 35 hours (#1 was Persona 5 Strikers). To add to my embarrassment I dropped it after the first dlc. Please make me feel bad about this. I deserve it.

 
 

Finally, Microsoft has something that can compete with Sony and Abandoned.

 
 

I’m a little bummed we got the Kirby Release Date today. While the game looks good and I’m excited for it, I hope it doesn’t mean a Nintendo Direct is far off.

 
 

Not sure if someone asked this but does anyone have any New Year’s Resolutions? Either gaming or otherwise. Mine in the comments.

 
 

Here is Mine. Makes me sad I spent 30 hours on FF VIII. Easily my least favorite of the mainline games I’ve played so far. Haven’t beaten SMTV yet but really enjoying it.


 
 

Me a Couple Months Ago: “If they ever reprint the Persona 5 Vinyl I am definitely picking that up” IAm8Bit: Puts Preorders up less than two months after I buy a house and after I just blew all disposable income on Christmas gifts…

 
 

Girlfriend offered to get me a Series X for Christmas and was able to get an all access order in. As a longtime halo fan I am beyond excited to try out infinite and try out game pass but as a working adult with a ps5, I wonder if I will have time for both

 
 

I’m hoping we get a release date for FFXVI at the state of play next week. I believe Yoshi-P mentioned he wanted the announcement ready by Tokyo Game Show but thought it would be cutting it close. Taking place a month later doesn’t seem too unreasonab

 
 

Is QToid the Red-light district of Destructoid?

 
 

Nintendo: You want Sora in Smash? You got it! Also Nintendo: You want a gigantic Animal Crossing update? You got it! FOR FREE!! Also Also Nintendo: You want 2-3 decade old games?You got it! That will be $50.

 
 

Nintendo Direct Tomorrow! What is everyone expecting/hoping for? I think we will see the final smash character, Xenoblade 3 and maybe those GB/GBC games being added to Nintendo Online. Hoping for Persona 3 or 4 port (doubtful) and FF1-6 and 13 ports.

 
 

I know quite a few of you build Gunpla but has anyone tried a Kotobukiya Frame Arms kit? I just saw them announce one that looks pretty cool but I’ve heard the quality usually isn’t as good.

 
 

Replaying Metal Gear Solid for the first time since 4 came out. Game holds up really well, and I am really enjoying it. Also as someone who collects figures, I would love an in depth MGS figure line.

 
 

A similar question may have been asked before but what is your least favorite game in your favorite game series? And how much do you dislike it relative to the rest of the series?

 
 

Me: Finally saves enough for a down payment on a house and gets a new job that pays well enough to afford mortgage. Housing Market: Shoots up 20%

 
 

I don’t get the hype surrounding the Playdate. It only has like 3 games and looks beyond tiny and uncomfortable to hold. Is there anything else it can do? Can it be modded or something? Not bashing on it, I just am confused about the hype.

 
 

Since the Steamdeck was announced almost a week ago, can we start getting some rumors for the Steamdeck Pro?
