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

I'm pretty sure you guys know what game I'll be playing tomorrow. One of THE hottest games of the season. That's right, I'm talking about Lunch Truck Tychoon. Kojima ain't got shit on me, mukkas!

Playing Project Zero 2 on Wii. One should hope PZ5 got more sensible controls - twisting the Wiimote left/right to turn the camera does not make sense.

"When you are not playing the game or choose not to join the defense, your FOB will be defended automatically by your Security Team and security devices." Yeah, I think I'll just avoid the FOB functionality in MGS V

PSA: If you're picking up Phantom Pain tomorrow, put the kids down for a nap, turn off your phone and tell your partner to pipe down - the opening hour deserves your undivided attention. Enjoy!

Just read that SquareEnix have applied some weird mutation of crowdfunding mechanics to the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided preorder. I know the last blog I wrote mentioned how big publishers try to pervert these systems, but to think it's already this far gone.

First in line to grab MGS V tomorrow. Close to my house, so it looks like I can eat and sleep comfortably. No one else seems to be waiting at my mailbox. Neighbors are getting suspicious.

You know what, I'm just gonna come out and say it. I hope MGSV fails. It won't train wreck by any means, but I hope it's a huge financial failure. Nothing against Kojima, but #fuckonami

MGS V unlocks for me tomorrow at noon.

I don't think you should be able to say #Fuckonami if you are deciding to support their product anyways. I don't often agree with boycotting and am not condoning that, but get your story straight and show a little consistency.

When the band began to play the stars were shining bright. Now the milkman's on his way and it's too late to say good night. So, Good Morning! Good Morning!

I'm guessing all rock bands in the world must have stopped making music videos this year, since I read fall out boy's "Uma Thurman" won for rock video of the year. I can only assume there were no other nominees.that's the only rational explanation.
