The Destructoid Show wants out of this chickensh*t outfit

Hello there, boys and girls! It's your creepy uncle Max with another installment of the critically-acclaimed [citation needed] Destructoid Show!

Today we talk about Aliens: Colonial Marines, which seems to be the bummer of the week here in video game land. Definitely a big disappointment, but if nothing else, it'll be interesting to hear what went wrong. Rumors of outsourcing seem to be the current scapegoat, though SEGA denies it. In other news, a DICE keynote reveals that game demos hurt sales. DICE keynotes are boring so I talk about Toy Fair 2013. In post-apocalyptic news, Obsidian devs wouldn't be opposed to make another Fallout, and Brian Fargo's Kickstarter'd Wasteland 2 shows off its first gameplay.
