The Daily Hotness: Ups and downs of the Wii U

Check out everything Destructoid did today

It must be taxing on the soul to be a Wii U fan. On the one hand, Wii U enthusiasts have Super Metroid for next to nothing, and so far they have voted the most when Jim asked which version of Resident Evil Revelations to review. On the other hand, juggernaut publisher EA is pulling support for the console entirely. I suppose that's still a net win.

Otherwise on Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released a new episode, Conrad and Jordan started a new Couch Campaign, Fraser reviewed some game with a hex grid, and so much more happened on this fine day.

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...
