The Daily Hotness: Blistering barnacles

Check out everything Destructoid did today

The funny thing about good game design is that many of the elements that work really brilliantly never actually get noticed. Today Hamish Todd took a really close look at one of the less discussed creatures in the Half-Life series: the barnacles. It's a really interesting analysis and you should totally read it.

Otherwise, another Podtoid episode came out, some kids had unexpected/awkward reactions to opening Christmas gifts, and a bit more happened today on Destructoid.
