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

After a long struggle, I seem to have landed in a dream job. It's very exciting and nerve wracking, but I'm happy with where I ended up.

REMEMBER: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is on PS+ for PS3! For PS3/PS4 owners like me who have barely used their PS3's since the PS4, remember that Sony still supports it!

*Giggles with glee* img I am loving XCOM 2, even what little of the story I've seen is great! Lost one solider in the first mission. After if course completely failing it XD

So uh... I didn't know Nordic was handing out free upgrades of Darksiders 2 Dethinitive Edition for us owners of the original game + all DLC on PC. I wonder if it's even worth installing compared to the original release.

Change the text to Destructoid. Make the alien Mr. Destructoid. And make the skulls either just Jonathan Holmes, or all staff. [img]http://www.destructoid.com/ul/339243-/xcom2box-noscale.jpg[/img] We can make it into an unofficial shirt if it rocks?

Can any California based Dtoiders confirm/deny how accurate American Truck Simulator is, scenery wise? Apart from the total lack of pedestrians, that is.As a Brit I remember playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and not recognising a damn thing about Manchester.

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -

Just discovered this today. 2012 album, solo artist writes it all herself. I'm blown away ... this is like my album of the year so far, easily. Listen to this song until the end, it just keeps getting better. Wow.

Steam, no, please! Not another sale! I need the money for Fire Emblem!

Nuuuuuuuu---Just realized that Fire Emblem Fates won't be released in my region on February 19th even though that was what my retailer, and the German Amazon, assured me. You even say that..
