The Weekend Hotness: Pimp daddy Inafune


Check out everything Destructoid did today

The man, the myth, the legend, Keiji Inafune will be attending PAX. Hopefully when I meet him again, I won’t do what I did at E3: back immediately out of the room, grab Max Scoville by the arm, and exclaim, “MOTHER F*CKIN’ KEIJI INAFUNE IS IN THERE!”

This weekend, I put Hyperkin’s Pixel Art Controller through the wringer, Sup Holmes? gets vertical with Jake Kaufman, Cblogger Handy welcomes you to the world of knock-off gaming, Chris Carter goes beyond with his Disney Infinity review then cracks open his boxed copy of New Super Luigi U, and Destructoid will be throwing a PAX party worthy of Caesar.
