The Daily Hotness: A bit of the old Ultra-Violence

11:59 PM on 03.15.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Man I can't wait for Saints Row IV. It does worry me a bit that the sequel started from what was only supposed to be an expansion pack to the last title, but even that tidbit can't curb my excitement. Just a teaser trailer and a few screenshots so far, and already I find myself sharpened up and ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence. Screw milk-plus.

Today Jim gives us the skinny on how good Dead Space 3: Awakening is (hint, it's not), while Chris tells us if Darkstalkers Resurrection is any fun (hint, it is) at all. We've also got not one, but two promoted Cblogs for today, while Freddie Wong delivers a brilliant mash-up spoof of American Psycho and Metal Gear Rising. Seriously do go check that video out. It's the best five minutes you can spend today.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.
