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. 


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.

I was playing MGSV, doing a Mine Clearing Side Op and saw a bear. I pelted it with tranq bullets, few seconds later it ran into a mine and blew up, alerting the enemies in the process. Holy shit I love this game.

The wait for Dragon Quest Heroes is killing me. AR challenges in Arkham Knight do not fill the void! Not even Cat-woman's nice butt can fill the void. These 3 days will be a trial. :(

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.
