The Daily Hotness: Compensating for something buddy?

11:59 PM on 03.01.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

You remember Gears of War 3? Yeah, that was a fun game. You still playing? Well it's not 2011 anymore is it. Epic has noticed too, which has to be why they're doing a 10XP event. Now that's just trying to hard. Interestingly enough though, Gears of War: Judgment looks pretty cool. Not saying that I'm saying that I'm not saying anything, but you should definitely check Dtoid on March 4th.

Today, we find out Star Wars 1313 may or may not be in trouble, Xbox Live continues it Games on Demand sale with the Call of Duty franchise, Cliff Bleszinski sounds off on microtransactions, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist gets a live action trailer.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!

Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.

my dilemma this black friday is a PS4 for bloodborne and little else or like half the games on my steam wishlist. I know in my heart which one I'm going to pick.

Got DeSu2 Break Record from GS' Black Friday sale ($29.99). Love the Arrange CD. It's been far too long since I heard Meguro do something that wasn't tied to Persona. Also grabbed an extra copy of Freedom Wars since they were $5.

Haven't been around a few days. Getting over a cold and working on a review for Superbeat: Xonic on Vita. Starting to feel better, I think / hope.

So I'm almost done with my first play through of Undertale and... It's okay. It's in no way bad (and I'm enjoying it more than Fallout 4 which in also playing) but feel... It was overhyped I suppose? Not sure really... Maybe a second play though will help

Sometimes I wonder why I care. To simply have more vitriol and misery as my reward, to suffer ingrates and fools. That in all I do I'm never afforded the same respect or kindness. Let it be then, and let pain follow. I'm done with this shit.

I was telling this dead baby joke at dinner tonight, and this lady I don't recognize says, "I'm sorry. That joke isn't funny to me, I have two dead children." At this point, I went over my options in my head and settled with telling her the joke twice.

I really wish the slowpokes at Microsoft would add Forza Horizon to Xbox One backwards compatibility.... It's my favorite racing game. And the soundtrack is honestly flawless.

Some green tea and Mario Kart w/ family is a great way to end the day.

Honestly, Broforce might be my GOTY. It's really fucking amazing.
