The Daily Hotness: Disney Ate My Neighbors

11:59 PM on 04.03.2013 // Ian Bonds

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Boy, it really is the end of an era, eh? Not only sad to see a much beloved studio closing, but so many people getting laid off because of its closing. A real shame, as they put out some of my favorite games of my childhood.

I'm of course speaking of today's big news about Disney closing LucasArts as far as a game-making entity. Plenty more happened today, such as Jordan and Conrad fumbling through Injustice, Chris reviewing BattleBlock Theater, and Vito chatted with the creative team of Remember Me, but honestly, all I want to do is play the hidden level in Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

Destructoid Originals:
Watch us fumble through the demo for Injustice
Interview: Social networking gone bad in Remember Me
Live show: BattleBlock Theater
Will Smith, guns, and 'feel bad' games with Paul Greasley
April Fools (and Assassin's Creed) only comes once a year

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

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!

Hey, all you Australian/UK/German Pokemon trainers out there! The Shiny Rayquaza event is ending, has just started, or will be starting in a few days (respectively), so be sure to get in on it while the getting is good!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!
