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.

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?
