The Daily Hotness: Up yours, Internet Explorer

11:59 PM on 01.25.2013 // Tony Ponce

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.

Time for Thanksgiving dinner, then more Shantae! [img][/img]

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Happy #Darksiders2 day-I mean Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future
