The Daily Hotness: Turn-based tactical espionage

11:59 PM on 07.02.2013 // Steven Hansen

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Rad. Klei Entertainment (Mark of the Ninja, Don't Starve) announced a new game, Incognita, that seems like X-Com meets Metal Gear. Klei has done good work in the past on titles like Shank, but Mark of the Ninja is immaculate stealth, while Don't Starve seems like a lovingly original thing. Blending stealth with a turn-based game is a cool inversion of the genre, regulating and restricting a predatory nature used towards a tactical advantage (versus the recent X-Com's "wander forward blindly as aliens appear"). I'm so down.

Today, Casey Baker espoused disappointment in Grid 2, Dale reviewed the new 14" Razer Blade, Chris Carter reviewed Kinect's Doodle Jump, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII got a DLC Buster sword and Cloud Strife outfit for Lightning as a pre-order bonus, I shot a bow for the first time, and more!

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]
