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.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

I want Just Cause 2 and Metal Gear Solid V + Peace Walker to fornicate together so we can have a beautiful big open world to blow up and/or fulton. Then I want to build an infinitely-sized base of soldiers, each with their own personalities and stats.

When SFV drops next year we gotta get some DTOID noob battles on, practice with online lag with friends, be really bad casuals together. We can call it Kanye Night Fights. #Swerve on FNF (just kidding...maybe).

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.

Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.
