Back from the dead!
Directed by Ridley Scott
Ladies and gentlebeings! Welcome to Comments of the Week presented by yours truly, FakePlasticTree. This is our attempt at rebooting a beloved feature blog series that we as a community hold very dear. Now, calling it a “reboot” might be a bit premature as it will more or less play on similar notes as you’re used to seeing, i.e. it will take place in the same universe as Dreamweaver and Fuzunga’s works. Some might refer to it as the Stranger Things type of creation, where it pays homage to its inspirations without doing anything overly new and exciting. Hopefully it will be a welcomed and worthy successor to what came before. If you get too tired of me, then worry not, as this time we are planning on passing the torch around to keep things fresh and exciting like we’re all a respective season of Doctor Who.
This feature is about celebrating YOU! No, not you – the pretty one! Destructoid has one of the most lively communities this side of Niero’s left nipple, and we want to cherish all the things you give to this community every single day simply by participating – whether it be on the front page or posting some adorable pictures of your pet dog withQposts. For now, I’ll focus solely on the front page comments this week. Thank you all the same for being you! Now let’s get to the comments as I retreat to my hiding place out of fear of being lynched by Niero.

And that is it for this debut edition of the new Comments of the Week. You might notice it isn’t quite as long as the usual entries, but this was more of a way for us to test the waters and see what works and how we might do better in the future. This one was created on the fly, and we’ll discuss whether to include things like Qposts in the future too. Keep making this community great people! Hope to see you all again if I don’t get fired by westacos out of a cannon into the sun.
