The Daily Hotness: Chef's Surprise


Check out everything Destructoid did today

I’ve never had the touch for culinary arts. Like piano and art lessons, it’s one of those things I wish I would have spent more time cultivating as a child. Now I regret that decision even more, as our own Steven Hansen shows us that cooking is the next breakthrough in the videogame jourmnalizm. When this spreads like wildfire, just remember you saw it here first.

Today, Dragon Age: Inquisition brings back elves and dwarf options for player characters, Fraser gives us his review of Dishonored’s final piece of DLC, Ryu Hayabusa and Strider Hiryu have a Death Battle, Persona 4 Arena’s newest iteration starts field testing, and Hamza brings us a video preview of Call of Duty: Ghosts .
