The Daily Hotness: Vintage thumbs up

Do you remember how awesome it was to get your first PC or console? Yeah, it was pretty sweet. You guys should post pictures in the comments of yourselves as kids with your early gaming rigs.

Today we have a new episode of The DTOID Show that talks about Mass Effect coming to iOS, reviews of NeverDead and Iron Brigade: Rise of the Martian Bear, impressions of DOTA 2, Gotham Impostors gets 100 DLC items, a giant platypus attacks Boston, the Olson twins announce their presidential run, the 3DS drops to $150 at GameStop, and McDonalds is actually good for you. I might have made a few of those up. Anyway, there is all kinds of fun stuff to read today.
