The Daily Hotness: What a weird day

Yeah. Today was kinda off. We had a pretty nice mix of news, including a couple new games, patches, and other awesome little tidbits. Sadly, we also saw the lay-off of everyone at 38 and Bighuge Games. The hearts of everyone here definitely goes out to them as they move forward.

 Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose.
