The Daily Hotness: Xbox One has no games

Check out everything Destructoid did today



WHERE ARE THE GAMES? I know, I know. Microsoft has noted that E3 was going to be when it focused on games. But, c'mon, what a perfect video. Anyway, it's a bit hard to take solace in the fact that Microsoft is claiming it'll show off games at E3 when so much of what it showed off today was a bit of a bummer. Particularly the almost-always online and measures meant to curb used games. Still a lot of questions.

Check the Xbox One round up after the break. There is a lot of info. Also check out our staff comparison, headed by the lovely Fraser Brown. Let's not let Patrick Hancock's Sanctum 2 review get lost in the excitement of the day, either.

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I'm farting right now.

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
