The Daily Hotness: SpyParty is looking great

11:59 PM on 08.08.2013 // Darren Nakamura

Check out everything Destructoid did today

For years now, we've been talking about how unique SpyParty is, in spite of its awful placeholder graphics. After seeing the images in Patrick's preview of the new environments, it is finally a game we can show to regular people without having to worry that they think we have lost our minds.

Otherwise on Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released another episode, Chris reviewed Dropchord, some Pokémon Mega Evolutions were shown, the Year of Luigi continued, and so much more happened on this fine day.

Destructoid Original: 
Podtoid 264: Phil Collins' Beautiful Meaty Flesh
Live show: Worms Clan Wars early gameplay

Community blogs of 8/8
Forum thread of the day: Deep Silver Humble Bundle

Contest: Win an awesome Dragon's Crown prize pack!

Review: Dropchord

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.

Freezing my ass off at a Penn State football game. Half of the hicks at this stadium probably didn't graduate high school, yet they're rooting for a college football team. I wish I was on my warm den playing MGS V.

Gosh darn it, she's done it again! That Sapphire's a talented minx. [youtube][/youtube]

Is renting games still a thing in America? I know there's only one UK company still doing rentals. And does it make you less tolerant of games? I definitely gave games less of a chance when I knew I could sling them back in the envelope and get a new one.

Probably the most awesome soundtrack in an indie game. And the game isn't so bad either. win/win situation tbqh.

"I musta dreamed a thousand dreams, been haunted by a millioon screaams, but I can hear the marching of feet, moving into the streeet!!!" Gosh dang this song is stuck in my head something fierce. Plus, puppets!
