The Daily Hotness: Infinitely awesome

11:59 PM on 12.19.2012 // Ian Bonds

Check out everything Destructoid did today

I am super, Super, SUPER psyched for BioShock Infinite. Yeah, go watch the first few minutes of footage if you haven't yet. Or even if you have, watch it again. PSYCHED.

Loads happened today, like THQ filing for Chapter 11 (and yet announcing four new games), The War Z devs hushed up dissent for their game, which then got it pulled, Jim offered another Jimquisition award, Tony reviewed Street Fighter X Mega Man, Allistair game us a look at the best (and worst) game covers of the year, and more happened with just two days left til the end of the world... supposedly.

We need a Dtoid RPG that stars Mr Destructoid, Gardevoir, Macho Man Randy Savage, and MATT DAMON. The hub zone will be Nekro's dungeon.

*Looks at Battle.net* League of Storm Heroes. Magic: The Hearthstone. Diablo. Starcraft. World of Warcraft. Oh, pay $10 to unlock Tychus. ...Guys, is Blizzard evil? I mean really, despicably, EA-level evil?

The Witcher 3 is 30% off on GOG.com, if you thought it was a bit expensive at launch. You get store credit too.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.
