The Daily Hotness: Cabinet


Check out everything Destructoid did today

A few weeks ago, I attended BitGen Gamer Fest: a day-long concert sponsored by MAGfest in Baltimore featuring artists such as Rare Candy, The Megas, The X-Hunters, and MegaRan, and hosted by brentalfloss. It was an awesome show, and between each act they showed old school video game commercials, as well as this short film featuring a few of the people who put on the show. It’s an odd little piece, but the effects are kind of cool. I’ve actually done a few short films with the guy who shot it.

Today on Dtoid, Jim gave us a much needed Jimquisition on DLC, Steven presented us with another tasty A la cartridge, Dale previewed Fantasia and Max:: The Curse of Brotherhood, Chris gave us his impressions of the console version of Diablo III, games were reviewed, a ton of videos from PAX hit, and much more happened on the 4th of September.
