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!

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
ChillyBilly avatarChillyBilly
OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
