The Daily Hotness: Still waiting on SimCity

Check out everything Destructoid did today

It seems like everybody on my Twitter feed had something to say about the SimCity debacle today. Scores have been downgraded elsewhere, and here on Destructoid, Josh let us know that our review is still coming due to the server downtime. Meanwhile, Fraser ranked some of the best city-building games to play while you wait for EA to sort out its servers.

Otherwise, Dale reviewed the new God of War game, Hamza let us know that the Dead Space 3 DLC is bringing the series back to survival horror, and although there wasn't a new Podtoid as we typically see on Thursdays, we were graced with a Jimquisition. Check it out, along with all of the other stuff that happened today.

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.
