The Daily Hotness: Narcissism, thy name is Ian

11:59 PM on 02.13.2013 // Ian Bonds

Check out everything Destructoid did today

I feel hurt and dismayed that I haven't yet made the "hottest men in the games industry" list*. Just look up there at my sexy mug! Admittedly, one is a headshot from a play I did, the other is a screen cap from my most recent music video, which Dtoid posted about this weekend. Wait, we're not talking about me? Oh, right...sorry. Anyway:

Tons of Dtoid originals hit the site today, including Chris' impressions of the PlayStation All-Stars DLC, Andy's interview with the graphic artist from Dead Space 3, a special Jimquisition, and Taylor takes a holiday themed look at how couples can bond over a shared love of games, just in time for V-day.

[*Total sarcasm, really...but seriously, how did that man-beast and former Dtoid EIC Nick Chester NOT make that list? No justice in this world, I tells ya.]

Destructoid Original:
Horror won't fly in $60 games? The industry won't let it!
Impressions: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC
Dead Space graphic artist: Games are the new mythology
Jimquisition: A-LIE-ns: Colonial Marines

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?
