The Daily Hotness: REVENGE...ance

Check out everything Destructoid did today

As if Conrad's glowing review of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance wasn't enticing enough. Earlier today, over at dtoid.tv, streamer and documented hat-wearer Philanthr0py was playing the latest effort from Platinum Games. With Raiden in a sombrero. And mariachi music instead of the game's soundtrack. Welp, there's $60 gone.

We've got a smorgasbord of content for you today, this, the day before the day of Sony's presumed PlayStation 4-bis reveal. Hamza brought us some neat looks at the rad indie FPS/RTS Natural Selection II, Kyle MacGregor previewed Bit.Trip Runner2, Daniel Starkey continued his look at generational trends with "gamification," Jim reviewed the bow-laden Crysis 3, and more!

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...
