The Daily Hotness: Happy Half-Tau Day

11:59 PM on 03.14.2013 // Darren Nakamura

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Math geeks across the world rejoice today, eating pie and celebrating their favorite transcendental constant. Unfortunately, pi is wrong. That doesn't mean you shouldn't eat pie today! Just check out The Tau Manifesto and learn a bit about the more elegant circle constant while you enjoy your pastry treat.

Here on Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released a new episode, Chris helped us get through the soon-to-be-nerfed Trials of Archimedes in God of War: Ascension, Fraser reviewed the stylish fighter The Showdown Effect, Jim took a look at characters who look like David Bowie, and a bit more happened on this fine Half-Tau Day.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Playing Shantae & The Pirates Curse, must say I'm loving it for the most part, barring the odd WHERE AM I D: moment

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

Okay so what 2, 3, 4 years later I bothered to finish. Now to write up that blog on why FFXIV lost my love by never challenging me and see if it's actually interesting...

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

Finished Momohime/Jinkuro's story in Muramasa last night. I always liked that ending. I didn't know there were more endings, though. On to Kisuke's story!

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.
