The Daily Hotness: Happy Half-Tau Day

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.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.
KnickKnackMyWack avatarKnickKnackMyWack
So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?

I think I broke it...

I have joined the discord group! Now I can call your waifu shit in more than one place!
TheBlondeBass avatarTheBlondeBass
Everyone's posting about waifus and I'm just here posting a blog about why I enjoy a recent game instead. This is why I'll never be promoted.
Gundy avatarGundy
There is a Spelunker themed dungeon in Megadimension Neptunia called Neplunker. It even comes complete with Spelunker music and dying from falling off waist high ledges! 10/10 would game over again.

You know among all the bosses I've fought I didn't expect Vagina Tooth Dragon to go down like a bitch.

News Tip off for anyone who wants it. Seems Binding of Issac has been banned from the Apple IOS app store.

Waifu Wars piece is up. But also, I got the Trails of Cold Steel limited edition in the mail the other day and just now looked at the pin you get with it. Wow, that horse is one smug looking son of a bitch. Kind of makes me want to punch him...

You can now buy Naruto movies on Steam. At least sell some good movies if you're going to get into anime Steam.

All right, you guys, time for the important questions. Fuck, Marry, Kill: Tharja, Sully and Sumia?

The time has come for me to play Earthbound.
Pixie The Fairy avatarPixie The Fairy
As the Ultimate Waifu gazed down upon the Earth from her Celestial Throne, she sighed, for mainly shit-tier waifus were being chosen. But one fairy gazed into the stars, declaring her love, sacrificing dreams and spiders on an alter of glitter for her.

Thanks to my girlfriend, we own a PS4 now. ID is Ikaruszino. I don't own any multiplayer games (yet) or have PS Plus (yet :p), but feel free to add me so in the future maybe we can play something.
Bardley avatarBardley
My absolute finest moment in all of Metal Gear. Also, the first time I had driven a truck.
JohnSmith123 avatarJohnSmith123
Ok. That EDF 4.1 game is really really good. You can even sing and shout "EDF!" with your soldiers! Holy crackers.
StriderHoang avatarStriderHoang
I want to goad my wife into playing RE Revelations 2 with me but I don't know if she can deal with the whole 3D spatial movement thing, even if she plays the supporting character.
Lawman avatarLawman
Heads-up: Mega Man soundtracks are free right now at the Capcom Store. Guessing it's a glitch. All of them are digital downloads, except for Mega Man 9, which is a physical CD that requires money for shipping. Link in comments.
