The Weekend Hotness: DESTINY! DESTINY!

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.

One thing I've noticed about the Halo series; the more epic the teaser, the more disappointing the game. And the "opening cinematic" for Halo V: Guardians looks epic.

I hear through the grapevine that a game called Metal Gear just came out that is sort of a big deal.

Thinking of starting to document my attempts in Super Mario Maker with screenshots etc. in a series of blogs - think USgamer's Daily Mario. But I think most who would spare a glance at it would be way better level designers and players than me by default.

Tearaway was cute, but it was kinda short and underwhelming to me. I would recommend paying around $20 for it if you value your money.
