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!

So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.

I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.

I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.

Why is it impossible to find a raid group in Destiny? Am I just cursed or something? All I want is to get a clan and do a raid.

Hnnnggg. My End of Evangelion video I made like 2 years ago has almost 700,000 views. I never thought it'd get this far. It was the first video I ever made and just did it for fun. Guess I have an eye for editing and an ear for music placement.

I want to listen to classical music. But I'm in a funky mood right now. The solution?

Been watching Better Call Saul, being a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad, and it's been pretty decent. Like a b-side to BB. But, this scene with Trevor (GTAV)-famous Steven Ogg has been my highlight. There's more to it before this, but it's the best part.

...Does Ubisoft let their employees do drugs before they write surveys? It really seems like it. "The progression of the main character (skills) in the game should be adapted" Can anyone tell me what the hell that's supposed to mean?
