You just have to look at things from a different angle.

Another summer has come upon SSB, and we’re sorta hard at work.  Con season’s coming up, y’know.  Anime Expo and Comic Con, naturally.  I’ve got some new comics on the horizon that are gonna be up as soon as I get ’em, so there’s that to look forward to.

On the gaming side of things, Persona 5.  Holy fuck.  Nier Automata.  Yakuza 0.  Can I just say that Japanese game devs are kicking ass again?  Hell, I’m going to be cosplaying again.  This time, I’m going to be Kazuma Kiryu from the Yakuza series.

Thailand was amazing.  Hot as fuck, but the Thais are exceedingly friendly.  Guess it’s that whole Southeast Asian mindset.  Honestly felt like the Philippines.  With more Muay Thai and spice.

Japan was…Japan.  I was honestly glad that I could spend more time with my friends out there, and seeing the Kanda shrine was honestly worth it.

There’s gonna be a new comic out that’s covering basically what I’ve been going through post-trip.  Nonstop training and MMA.  Look out for it!

Other than that, I don’t have anything else to update you all on.  Currently our comic anthology is in its compilation stage, we’ve gotta find all of our art and compile it, and hopefully have some other articles as well.

Destiny 2: Yeah people still play this

What’s up guys, I’m back again with some news from the Destiny universe. The sequel is happening. We have worked, looted, cheesed, and pissed off a half-dozen different alien species. This time, it gets real.

Gary(as r/destinythegame refers) and the cabal are launching a full-scale invasion and conquest of the city. All our armor, loot, ships, sparrows, everything is gone. So tighten those boots, grab a gun, charge your supers and get ready to get some fat loots; because why else do we kill aliens but for the loot they bring?

Destiny 2 launches September 8 for PS4, Xbox One, AND PC. So pick your platform with your friends and get ready for a lootstravaganza(this is a word now, ask Gearbox and Borderlands franchise). Preorders will get you early access to the beta.

 

Onyx, let me handle this one Destiny post, before Kotaku gets to it.

Courtesy of DTG’s own u/Hawkmoona_matata, this disturbingly accurate trailer perfectly encapsulates everything wonderful about Destiny, the game where people still beg Bungie to make changes this late in the game’s cycle.

Because not even Oryx can control an ogre, unless HE’S IN A TANK!!!

Milestones

I’m gonna be 34 years old this Friday.  Yep.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  I’m not gonna lie to you guys, it’s been an absolute blast making the occasional comic and blog entry with you all.  And for that, I’m grateful.

Also, SSB’s been around for close to 9 years now.  I really need to nail down a definite start date for SSB…I’ll wait for my Timehop to let me know when I made that post with Jenny.

Anyway, I seriously can’t express how happy I am to be around such cool fuckin’ people every day of my life.  Just some things to look forward to over the next few weeks:

  • More Hood Tours.
  • More playthroughs
  • Destiny’s “Look Back” streaming
  • And more comics.  For sure.
  • Otakufighter posts again!

Soooo, to Jared, Ericka, Brian, Justin, Josh, Jairus, Jesse, Mario, you have no idea how much I appreciate you guys putting up with my random shenanigans and even more random schedule.  Thank you.  I appreciate all of you guys more than you can ever know.

SSB vs. Yakuza 0

Okay, enough bullshit.  If you were afraid of getting into the Yakuza/Ryu Ga Gotoku franchise because it spans 6 games, then 0 is the perfect entry.

Welcome back Guardians! Christmas…Destiny style!

Wassup readers. I’ve been away for a while doing other stuff trying to get caught up on various games that have come out recently. While I continue doing that, here’s a quick update on everyone’s favorite game to hate: Destiny.

This time we have the Christmas themed event called The Dawning. Check out the reveal trailer:

Everything starts on December 13th just after Iron Banner next week. So far we know that SRL or Sparrow Racing League will be coming back with new tracks, sparrows, and other various goodies. There are also supposed to be new quests, armor, shaders, emblems, decorations (Tower looking savvy) and updated strikes with a new scoring system. Oh yeah ICE BREAKER is back as well as two new machine guns code-named “Void Lord” and “Solar Lord”. Both were in the database since the Taken King, but are finally being unveiled. There will also be new items to Eververse and without dipping too deep into the salt mine that was Festival of the Lost, hopefully things are better this time.

Stay locked on December 13th to get started on the newest live event. Don’t worry this one will be free.

UPDATE: Icebreaker will be available through a quest involving the nightfall and SRL and Strike scoring will be sticking around. SRL will be available through private matches only though. courtesy of Game Informer

I blacked out for a minute.

Okay, Destiny.  All that’s left now is the grind to 400.

My Titan is at 397 now, and man, I had one helluva run yesterday.  Ferris and I made a group on the100 and reddit, and we ran Heroic Mode Wrath of the Machine, and managed to get Challenge Mode done as well.  I must have done something to please RNGEsus because I got the complete Heroic Made Raid Armor set.  I must say that my Titan does look rather fetching.

You can review my current gear in the gallery above.
