The Daily Hotness: Better a witty fool than a foolish wit

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Now that all that April Fools' Day hullabaloo is over and done with, there was a lot of legitimate stuff going down today. Most of it less fun, granted. Back to reality. The reality in which I'm still reeling from GDC illness and can't even numb myself with baseball because I don't have cable. Oh, man. I made myself sad. I suddenly appreciate April Fools' Day a bit more than I did yesterday.

Today, we asked The Question, Fraser Brown delivered a rad interview with Planescape: Torment designer and Fallout: New Vegas writer Chris Avellone, Chris Carter talked BattleBlock Theatre with The Behemoth, Hamza brought us a great look at Super Time Force, Jim reviewed The Organ Trail: Director's Cut, and more!

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.
