The Daily Hotness: Here, have a Pushmo puzzle

The 3DS got its first original, worthwhile eShop game yesterday in the form of Pushmo, a fun little puzzler. Well, we’ve been given a Mr. Destructoid puzzle for use in the game! After completing the first level of puzzles, you’ll gain access to the Pushmo Studio and, more importantly in this case, the QR Reader. Enjoy!

We reviewed the adventurous Cabela’s Survival, Bastion is now available through Google Chrome and is also getting some DLC, S.T.A.L.K.E.R developer GSC may or may not be kaput, and more happened on 12/9/11.
