The Weekend Hotness: DESTINY! DESTINY!

11:59 PM on 02.17.2013 // Tony Ponce

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Bungie has pulled back the veil on its follow-up to Halo. What could it be? What could it be!?

It's a shooter. In space. Umm... cool, I guess.

Maybe this will get you excited. No actual game footage has been shown yet, so there isn't much to get excited about aside from promises. If there's anything we've learned in just the past few weeks, it's that promises don't amount to much. Seeing is the only way to believe.

This weekend, Teenage Pokémon is back, Allistair Pinsof interviews the lead designer of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Sup, Holmes? takes care of Miles Tilmann and Rich Grillotti of PixelJam, Bungie's Jason Jones makes a bold claim about the way we play shooters, and Skyrim is generic because a guy said so.

Just a reminder: If you're game doesn't have a dancing murderer, or a dancing little girl, you're not a GOTY contender.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.

Nintendo of America released a YouTube video promo for Fatal Frame 5. They used the 'word' "spoopy."

Had the brilliant idea of watching the original Alien last night before bed. Totally didn't have crazy dreams afterward. Also, Bilbo Baggins was a total jerk in that movie. [img][/img]

Sure Niero's all powerful, but does he have lips? Woah...

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.

A little late, but got the Platinum trophy for Dancing All Night. Was proud of myself, until I saw the medals in the collection menu. Coming for you next... after I master the Adachi dlc tonight.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.
