The Daily Hotness: DualShock is Dead?

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Well, not yet. But if Sony has its way, the controller for the PS4 -- I'm sorry, "Orbis" -- will be something completely different. Last time Sony tried that, fearful gamers threw a hissy fit, unwilling to break out of their comfort zone. Five bucks says we see a repeat of that.

That wasn't even the biggest story of the day. Today was simply packed to burst! Congress introducing videogame bills? Sony selling its US HQ? Monster Hunter 3's servers shutting down as the MH3 Ultimate servers go up? Silicon Knights' troubles piling up even further? Damn!

On the Originals front, Jayson Napolitano has a new Note Worthy music roundup featuring Twilight Symphony, Halo 3: ODST, Saturday Morning RPG, and more; Allistair Pinsof interviews the chief creative officer behind Disney Infinity, and Patrick Hancock spends time with the indie title A Fistful of Gun.

Destructoid Originals:
Note Worthy 011: Twilight Symphony, NSMBU, NESteryears
Friday Night Fights: Returning to the Battlefield
Interview: Disney Infinity's John Blackburn on toys
This weekend on Dtoid TV: Sanctum Giveaway
Indie Nation: A Fistful of Gun

Am I the only one excited to play the Forza Motorsport 6 demo?

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

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
