The Daily Hotness: Ups and downs of the Wii U

11:59 PM on 05.16.2013 // Darren Nakamura

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.

Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...
