The Daily Hotness: I guac the lime

11:59 PM on 04.09.2013 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

I totally dug DrinkBox's Guacamelee! when I previewed it last month. Now that it's out, Jonathan Holmes has our full review of the game, which he has lavished with high praise, in case you didn't believe me. I do have shifty eyebrows. Thanks to an assorted, month-long PlayStation Store sale, you can score the game (for both PS3 and Vita) at an even cheaper price. Might want to consider it if you like fun. 

Today, a badly named prequel to the Batman: Arkham series was officially announced (including a 2.5D, Metroidvania-styled related release for Vita and 3DS), Kyle MacGregor reviewed the equally badly named Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, Jim reviewed the also badly named and just plain bad Afterfall: InSanity Extended Edition, Level-5 announced it is working on a PS4 game, and more!

The amount of people who still defend Atlus's terrible marketing for their "crossover game" is kind of disturbing...

Playing MGSV Ground Zeroes reminds me of when I was a younger child and I would play game demos over and over again, creating my own objectives and stories with my imagination. I love it!

SFV just revealed Laura's video. She doesn't look that combo-friendly tbh. That just might be the video though.

Apparently some people are upset at Hyrule Warriors Legends calling it "the most expensive DLC", to quote a well known former writer of the site "they're Nintendo fans, that's what they do" complain.

God damn Xenonauts is brutal on Ironman mode. Oh well, time to start again.

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

My opinion on Tomba has changed, now I dig it again. Stay tuned for updates.

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD
