The Daily Hotness: Hey guys, I think we broke it

11:59 PM on 03.08.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Jesus H probably-non-existent-Christ! Talk about all across the board, SimCity seems to have hit many people in many different ways according to Metacritic. Or maybe it hasn't hit you at all. Don't worry, keep refreshing that login page and I'm sure you'll get to play that game you paid for, someday. In the mean time you can enjoy the free game EA is offering though. Not like you can get a refund or anything. 

VIDEOGAMES!

Today, Mike Capps officially cuts all ties with Epic Games, Take-Two offers words to live buy in reference to Grand Theft Auto, and Capcom offers a ton of goodies to those of you brave enough to pre-purchase Resident Evil 6 on PC. I was hoping one of the bonuses would be taking the suck out of RE6, but that is not the case.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);

Got out of Deadpool. It definitely was a movie with Deadpool in it. Some parents were shocked to learn it was also rated R for a reason.

So... gender and biology. All I'll say here is please respect people and their identities and don't try to push assumptions as fact. It doesn't need to be said to most here but denying people their identities is pretty harmful and very unpleasant.

Any PS4 recommendations for a guy who can't afford PS+, since all I've got is Battlefront and there's next to nothing to do in that game?

Would anyone be willing to help out dear ol' Dreamweaver with Destiny? Need a partner to tackle 7+ matches of Crimson Doubles for that 320 Light Ghost Shell. Will have to work on Comments of the Week first, but will be on later. I suck at the game though.

I'm not digging Trine too much. It has really screwy controls.

Sonic the Hedgehog's Twitter account gave dating advice here: http://www.gamesradar.com/dating-advice-real-sonic-hedgehog/ I am now significantly less bitter about Valentine's Day.

Tried out The Lost Vikings for the first time in Heroes of the Storm. Lots of fun, but I've got a long way to go before I could consider myself remotely good with them.
Malthor avatarMalthor
Dear Lord, I think I've stumbled over the most bullshit boss fight I've seen in a long time. "Here, let me summon 2-3 mnions each turn. They inflict all of the status effects btw, as do I. Have fun!"

Bought FF Explorers and downloaded Soul Sacrifice Delta last night. SSD is faring better than FFEx so far. What is it about this genre that makes SE go to crap on lore and world building? They're usually great at it. Also no 3D :/
