The Daily Hotness: BioShock is a history lesson

11:59 PM on 04.15.2013 // Brett Zeidler

Check out everything Destructoid did today!

Man, Allistair wrote a sweet looking piece about BioShock Infinite being the history lesson gamers deserve. I say sweet looking, because I haven't read it myself out of fear of spoilers. Yes, I haven't touched Infinite yet, and yes that makes me an awful person. Don't judge me.

Speaking of judging, Nintendo Korea had some harsh words about a local weather reporter, Jim spoke with Bethesda Vice President Pete Hines, we asked what game you replay yearly, Conrad and Jordan discovered the retro roadie run in Gears of War: Judgement, we listened to the second volume of the Halo 4 soundtrack, and so many more things happened on 4/15/2013.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img][/img]

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
GoofierBrute avatarGoofierBrute
Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.
IDrawOnTape avatarIDrawOnTape
my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.
El Dango avatarEl Dango
Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img][/img]
Cosmonstropolis avatarCosmonstropolis
Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.
