Daily Hotness: Gundams are better than videogames!

12:00 AM on 09.04.2009 // 8BitBrian

Why hello there! I'm sure you were expecting to see Hamza here, but he's busy PAXing up Seattle. So you know what that means, right? We talk about tentacles, of course!

Actually, my favorite bit of news today was Mr. Tomino decrying games as evil. I'll try and push him on his comments when he appears at New York Anime Fest. Want to challenge him yourself? We've got a couple of tickets to give away!

And now, onto your daily dose of Destructoid delectables!

Drive Any Track is wild, wild fun. Surprised I only came across it because of the steam sale, I thought I'd have at least heard something about it earlier. Can't wait to see how it progresses!

Quick thoughts about my first hours of XCOM 2: The new Sectoid is a bastard, Shen's daughter looks like she escape from Life is Strange, Tygan has a really cool necktie (i love neckties) and officer Bradford need a drink... a strong one. And a a hug.

In between work and, uh, work, I've been buying PS Vita games. Not playing them. Buying them. There are a whole lotta obscure games on the Vita. And a lot of them involve either dating anime boys or underage girls doing decidedly non-underage-girl things.

The good news: XCOM 2 is installed on my pc. The bad news: It runs about as well as a fat kid on ice.

I ended up buying Yakuza 3 on Amazon and nabbing Gravity Rush Remastered on the PS Store. Both have trophies so I'm pretty hyped to play em.

Looks like Nintendo was selling a North America exclusive 3DS cover plate. At least, I've never seen this particular one before. It's out of stock now, though.
