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.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?
