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.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.
Barry Kelly avatarBarry Kelly
I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
