The Daily Hotness: Up yours, Internet Explorer

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Perhaps you've seen this ridiculous Internet Explorer advertisement that Microsoft posted a few days ago. It's trying to appeal to our nostalgia for the 90s with a montage of assorted consumer goods that have absolutely nothing to do with web browsing, parading a bunch of stock child actors who were not even f*ckin' alive during the 90s, and somehow that's supposed to make me want to go back to IE why!? The only thing I take away is that IE is stuck in the 90s, which is why I don't use it anymore.

Today, Hamza Aziz has got a SimCity blowout; contributor Stephen Beirne discusses the upcoming Objectify a Male Tech Writer Day; we rock reviews for Strike Suit Zero, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, and the ROCCAT Isku FX keyboard; Namco Bandai tries to appease fans who never received their Ni no Kuni Wizard's Edition bundles; the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale devs got hit with layoffs; and Boob Wars is both the greatest thing and the worst thing of all time.

Woke up to find the qposts filled with favorite pokemon. I'm gonna be that guy and say his favorite is Charizard. Too lazy to go dig up a picture, but I don't have to. Yall already know what he looks like.

CONTROVERSY: I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Black right now and the truth of the matter is that Ninja Gaiden 2 is the better game. The combat is just so much better, and the pacing is as well. NGB is still a 10/10 to me though. NGB's combat is just alot slower

Since I was a lad who actually followed Pokemon, Scyther was green and sharp and cut his way to my little heart, where he remains today.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!
Lawman avatarLawman
Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.

One of my personal favorite pokemon.
