The Daily Hotness: Still waiting on SimCity

11:59 PM on 03.07.2013 // Darren Nakamura

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.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
