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.

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.

A little late, but got the Platinum trophy for Dancing All Night. Was proud of myself, until I saw the medals in the collection menu. Coming for you next... after I master the Adachi dlc tonight.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Plague Knight is pretty rad, even when represented by mediocre artists [img][/img]

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.
