The Daily Hotness: Getting Smash

Evolution 2013, the yearly, world's biggest fighting game tournament known colloquially as "Evo," is this weekend. One of the games slated for competitive play and live streaming is Super Smash Bros. Melee, only added to the roster after fans raised $95,000 to be donated to breast cancer research. Earlier today, it was reported that Nintendo would not allow Smash to be streamed, echoing a stance earlier in the year in which Nintendo claimed ownership of Let's Plays. Yet, miraculously, after some understandable irritation, Nintendo about faced and allowed Melee to be streamed. And the peasants rejoiced.  

Today, Kyle MacGregor reviewed niche 3DS strategy RPG Project X Zone, Storm went on an adventure with Skyrim, Mr. Destructoid dominated Retro City Rampage players' heads, Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem owners got a neat deal, and more!

The Weekend Hotness: I'm reading the sh*t outta One Piece

Despite its being the best-selling manga in Japan, I never jumped aboard One Piece. The weird, noodly art style had always turned me off, so I never bothered giving it a chance. Then one day I said to myself, "Stop being a li...more
