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.

Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.

Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than Bayo

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

By the way, that IGPX collection is a new release. It's the first time the show is available in a complete package, and the first time it's been available in any format in about 10 years. [url]http://amzn.to/20JSMCd[/url]
