The Daily Hotness: Gone Home


Check out everything Destructoid did today

So Gone Home is out today, and it’s getting almost as much buzz on my Twitter feed as Papers, Please did last week. It’s supposed to be a great example of storytelling in videogames, so I’m curious to see what makes it so special. Are any of you looking into this one?

On Destructoid, Conrad and Jordan continued their Daily Spelunk, Jayson brought another edition of Noteworthy, the crew discussed Call of Duty: Ghosts on Office Chat, Hamza previewed the new Call of Duty multiplayer, Chris reviewed Plants vs. Zombies 2, and so much more happened on this fine day.
