The Daily Hotness: Prince of Persia is certifiably awesome

Man, Prince of Persia is gorgeous.

As I explained in a previous post, I was really looking forward to Prince of Persia. Now that Nick’s glowing review is in, my decision to purchase the game has been cemented — I’m picking PoP over Resistance 2 and LittleBigPlanet (for now, anyway; I hope to pick up both of those titles at some point down the line).

Criterion detailed non-free Burnout Paradise DLC; Nick reviewed Prince of Persia; Japanator told us about their daily December giveaways; Hamza previewed a f*ckton of Atari games; and much more happened on 12/02/08.
