The Daily Hotness: E3 2013, The Abridged Version

11:59 PM on 06.13.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

As yet another E3 winds down, we take time to reflect on what was. Consoles were shown, prices were revealed, games were announced, and sooner than we know it a new generation will be upon us. It's a good couple of months before the new hardware is out, giving each of us time to reflect on which system we'll dip into first. Unless of course you're that weird person who didn't pay attention to the show at all. Fear not, VideoGamer has your E3 hardware info covered, bringing you the finest highlights of Microsoft and Sony in two bit sized chunks. Enjoy!

Today, E3 comes to it's official end, with some final looks at games like Dead Rising 3, Super Mario 3D World, and Zelda: Windwaker HD. We take a moment to remember the life of Secret of Mana artist Hirō Isono, EA clarifies on why it went back on its online pass program, and Cliffy B doubles down on his whole 'used games and rentals are evil' philosophy. Naturally, Jim Sterling has a response.

Destructoid Originals:
Used games and 'AAA' games are incompatible? Good!

Spooky yet totally true gaming fact: the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros are the same exact shape. #Spooky

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.
