The Daily Hotness: Steambox baby mama drama

Check out everything Destructoid did today

So first everyone was all like, "Look, first Valve-supported Steambox," the surprisingly pricey $1,000 Piston by Xi3. Then Valve was all like, Eh, this ain't really our bag, daddy-o, distancing itself from Xi3's Piston and saying there isn't currently any open collaboration between the two companies. But then Xi3 CEO Jason Sullivan fired back, stating Valve had asked them to make the Piston and that that directive came, of course, from his Gabe-ness himself, and that while the Piston is not the official Steambox, there may be joint doings in the future. Snap.

Today, Fraser Brown reviewed the excellent Super House of Dead Ninjas, Ron Gilbert left Double Fine (before we find out what's next for Ron, we're still waiting on the wonderfully named iOS game Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG), Ian Bonds reviewed Naruto Powerful Shippuden, we ran a giveaway for a last minute PAX East pass, and more!

I heard from a little birdie that a store near my house will be getting Street Fighter V a day early. Will I get banned from PSN if I play it online that day?

I try to hold myself to just one waifu, but games like Persona 4 and Overwatch make it so very hard.

FEAR and Resident Evil 4 were great action/horror games. It's a shame that nowadays such ideas either go one way or another. I would like to see a resurgence of that style where it's a scary/tense experience but the player has power and control.

Been watching this show on hulu I feel like it would make for a kickass Platinum Game. Imagine playing through mostly as the supporting cast and beating the game on hard gives you Saitama for God Mode.
