The Daily Hotness: Witcher 3 is not ass, and other awards

11:59 PM on 06.14.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Now that E3 2013 is completely in the books, it's that time when all the busy little bees of the internet decide what their favorite games of the show were. Respawn Entertainment's big coming out party, Titanfall, stole the Destructoid Game of Show crown this year, but it hardly seems fair to just talk about the best of the best. What about that game that looks like it will get a solid 8/10? What about that other game that doesn't look like compete ass? Don't they deserve a little trophy and some time in the limelight? Of course they do, and VideoGamer thinks so too.

Today, the last tidbits of E3 previews find their way out, with looks at The Witness, Contrast, and FIFA 14. EA official confirms the dissolving of Danger Close studios, Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma speaks on Nintendo s need for change, and the minds behind Katamari Damancy and Journey team up for what will undoubtedly turn out to be the videogame equivalent of LSD.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

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+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

Just got a Vita with a 16GB card for super cheap. What games should I be looking out for?

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Surprise, Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition has already sold out on Amazon.

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
