New Destructoid Episode: Battlefield 3 & Summer of Arcade

Hello, my darlings. It’s your old pal Max with some more internet videos for you to watch instead of doing your homework.

Our robot overlord Mr. Destructoid has social-engineered his way into the Ms. ‘Splosion Man Pinball FX2 table. You know, pinball? Like, those old steampunk arcade games? Ubisoft’s up to their old dirty DRM tricks again with Driver: San Francisco. Stop it. Seriously. DICE address the PC/console differences for Battlefield 3, and then add that it’s kicking ass with pre-orders. There are some screenshots for the upcoming HD versions of Resident Evils 4 and Code Veronica.

Then, we’ve got a big ol’ XBLA Summer of Arcade blowout. First, Bastion and From Dust have been reviewed, and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is out next week, even though it was on sale briefly this morning. After that, there’s Fruit Ninja Kinect, which is super fun. But you’d already know that if you’d seen our E3 video on it. Finally, there’s Toy Soldiers: Cold War, which looks like some real American heroic fun.
