The Daily Hotness: More like SimServerError

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Am I right? SimCity's release sort of snuck up on me. I spent months concerned I was going to actually have to install Origin and actually support EA's unconscionable practices (always online needs to die). Instead, the game is out, in all of its somewhat-playable glory and I'm not even afraid I'll impulse purchase it because I can't be bothered to install origin. Wallet, 1. EA, 0. Or however many units its sold. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here downloading more free PS+ games than I will ever have time to play. Ugh. 

Today, Hamza delivered the details on Hawken's new mech, Chris Carter chronicled the most choice Castlevania titles, Fraser Brown reviewed solid adventure title Cognition, I shared some animu nonsense about the hot mess that is Time and Eternity, Jim tepidly received a new Dynasty Warriors game, and more!

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.

That moment when you look at your backlog of games...and it looks back and you and says "What the hell man? you have over 100 games on this list!". I feel guilty...

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.
