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.

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.
