The Daily Hotness: Sweet child of light

Check out everything Destructoid did today

We had some lovely Ubisoft-coverage this morning. Hamza previewed the fascinating Child of Light, a JRPG from the minds behind Far Cry 3. It uses the same engine as the gorgeous Rayman Legends. So too does the title from the Rayman Legends team, Valiant Hearts, a story-centric World War I game. Wonderful stuff!

Today, Jim and John brought us glowing reviews for Killzone: Mercenary and The Wonderful 101, Hamza pet dogs with the PlayStation 4, we kicked off two contests you can enter (one let’s you — international readers included — win a PS4 or Xbox One game), Jim played more Outlast, and more!
