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.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
