The Daily Hotness: Catching up

So Destructoid was down for a couple of days. It sucked. But, we’re back in action now! Today’s recap takes in every post from Saturday, Sunday, Monday and today. Yup, lots of recapping today.

Check out all of the VGA reveals, what do you want to see in Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, check out our first two game of the year nominees, Anthony reviewed Monkey Island: Chapter 5, there’s plenty of contests still open and a ton more stuff happened the past few days. So much, that I had to create a jump as this list is too long!
