The Daily Hotness: Channeling O.J. Simpson

11:59 PM on 04.16.2013 // Steven Hansen
  @dtoidsteven

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!

Also, I think my Wii U gamepad is on its last legs... the NFC reader is still kaput, the screen is rather smudgy and the L button is started to stick like a motherfucker. Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
