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.

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Why did I have to read that Austin Grossman was going to be one of the writers on a cancelled Half-Life 2 episode?

Going to be honest; I love out-of-context anime screenshots. They're... kind of incredible.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T
