The Daily Hotness: 'Work of a video gamer'

11:59 PM on 03.18.2013 // Brett Zeidler

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.

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...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.
