The Daily Hotness: Sony knocked my gamescom socks off

11:59 PM on 08.20.2013 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

It's gamescom. We've already collected up Microsoft's and Sony's announcements. Any other gamescom news and frenzied madness can be found under the "gamescom" section below. So much cool stuff came out of today, including a bunch of fabulous announcements from Sony, most of them rad indie games. Rime looks like a colorful Shadow of the Colossus. So many things. 

Aside from gamescom madness, Hamza previewed Telltale's awesome-looking The Wolf Among Us, Jim reviewed the new Splinter Cell joint, Chris Carter delivered some Saints Row IV tips, a new Wind Waker Wii U bundles was leaked along with two separate Pokemon 3DS XL bundles, and more!

Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.
