The Daily Hotness: Channeling O.J. Simpson

11:59 PM on 04.16.2013 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Ron Gilbert, of Monkey Island fame, as well as the recent The Cave (presently free on PS+!), wrote a blog post: "If I Made Another Monkey Island..." Like O.J. Simpson's bizarre book If I Did It, Gilbert adamantly stated that he is not making another Monkey Island. Several times. Don't get your hopes up. No, this is more an interesting thought experiment on Gilbert's behalf. One which didn't tickle me as it did many. I find a lot of the retro tenets (insane logic) of adventure games to be a bit non-functional. Still, interesting. Begin speculating against Gilbert's behest. I mean, LucasArts is no more, right?

Today, Jim played with Skylanders toys, Chris Carter reviewed the retro Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers in its first Western release, Steven Hansen previewed the newly physics laden NCAA Football 14 and the fantasy adventure Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons,  Abel Girmay previewed the cute-looking Cloudberry Kingdom, and more!

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

My opinion on Tomba has changed, now I dig it again. Stay tuned for updates.

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

AARRGGGHHHH!!!, GODDAMIT!, fucking SOMA has crashed 3 fucking times in a row and I always lose ~20 minutes of playtime!, playing the same section over and over kinda ruins the tension! >.<'

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.
