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.

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.
