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 think, for my first try, I drew a pretty damn good Ryu, if I do say so myself [img]https://www.filepicker.io/api/file/edB8UKLdSZep8ZSOYF8u[/img]

Really sad that Wes Craven has passed away. He made really fun films.

R.I.P. Wes Craven. I'll always remember you for A Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream and Red Eye. I'll try not to remember you for Music of the Heart.

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.

Been looking for a car to buy today. I swear, I am so sick of my mums voice. "It's too expensive!" "Don't you think it's a little big..." "INSURANCE!" Goddamn woman, chill your beans.

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Am I the only one excited to play the Forza Motorsport 6 demo?

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.
