The Daily Hotness: 'Work of a video gamer'

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Boy, that silly news media is at it again! Today, a story made rounds at major news organizations about an unnamed police officer making statements claiming the Sandy Hook shooter's seven foot long spreadsheet was the sole indicator of "the work of a video gamer." I can't wait until they start blaming Count Chocula cereal for training and motivating kids how to shoot up schools.

On a lighter note, we asked if $70 was a reasonable price for AAA games, we're giving away a custom Gears of War: Judgement Xbox 360 that's not sold in stores, John Riccitiello stepped down as Electronic Arts CEO, and many more super awesome things happened on 3/18/2013.

Thinking of starting to document my attempts in Super Mario Maker with screenshots etc. in a series of blogs - think USgamer's Daily Mario. But I think most who would spare a glance at it would be way better level designers and players than me by default.

Tearaway was cute, but it was kinda short and underwhelming to me. I would recommend paying around $20 for it if you value your money.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.
