The Daily Hotness: Better a witty fool than a foolish wit

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Now that all that April Fools’ Day hullabaloo is over and done with, there was a lot of legitimate stuff going down today. Most of it less fun, granted. Back to reality. The reality in which I’m still reeling from GDC illness and can’t even numb myself with baseball because I don’t have cable. Oh, man. I made myself sad. I suddenly appreciate April Fools’ Day a bit more than I did yesterday.

Today, we asked The Question, Fraser Brown delivered a rad interview with Planescape: Torment designer and Fallout: New Vegas writer Chris Avellone, Chris Carter talked BattleBlock Theatre with The Behemoth, Hamza brought us a great look at Super Time Force, Jim reviewed The Organ Trail: Director’s Cut, and more!
