The Daily Hotness: I guac the lime

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!

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.
