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!

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.
