The Daily Hotness: DualShock is Dead?

11:59 PM on 01.18.2013 // Tony Ponce

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
The DTOID Show: Killer Is Dead, Revengeance & SimCity

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.
