The Daily Hotness: Game industry doesn't want heroines

11:59 PM on 03.19.2013 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

In the most irritating news of the day, the creative director on Remember Me, the rad-looking sci-fi action game, told Penny Arcade that the game almost didn't happen, as the team had struggles shopping it around because it features a female lead. Jim already responded to this bologna in full, but I've not had a proper chance to get indignant yet, so here we are. Here's hoping the final product is as good as it is promising and here's to me eventually no longer mentally associating it with P.N.03. Wait. Do you think that's why Capcom decided to publish it?

Today, Jonathan Ross reviewed StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Fraser Brown previewed Arma 3, Chris Carter previewed The Elder Scrolls Online, Jayson Napolitano talked with Eidos Montreal audio director Steve Szczepkowski about a remixed Deus Ex album, the winner of the Teenage Pokemon t-shirt poll was announced, BattleBlock Theatre actually got a release date, Square Enix irritated me by including Final Fantasy X-2 HD with the PS3 versions of Final Fantasy X HD when it should be working on Final Fantasy XII HD, and more!
