Check out everything Destructoid did today

So, today Hamza put up amazing coverage of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, including his preview and an interesting piece on how the game will include shipjacking. Yes, shipjacking. Assassin's Creed IV, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.

Speaking of curiosity, we asked if social integration matters to you, Aliens vs. Predator: Evolution won't remove the bad taste Colonial Marines left behind, Taylor listed ten psychedelic freakouts, and so many more awesome things happened on 3/4/2013.

@Jed Whitaker I might be missing something, but does the race of the characters really matter? I'm white and if every VG character was black I wouldn't care. It's skin color... that's it. I guess others care more than me about this stuff though.

One thing I've noticed about the Halo series; the more epic the teaser, the more disappointing the game. And the "opening cinematic" for Halo V: Guardians looks epic.

I hear through the grapevine that a game called Metal Gear just came out that is sort of a big deal.

Thinking of starting to document my attempts in Super Mario Maker with screenshots etc. in a series of blogs - think USgamer's Daily Mario. But I think most who would spare a glance at it would be way better level designers and players than me by default.

Tearaway was cute, but it was kinda short and underwhelming to me. I would recommend paying around $20 for it if you value your money.
