Holy chainsaw guns, we've got a ton of news for you today! More details creeped out about Elder Scrolls Skyrim, including some promising news about NPC intelligence and wooly fucking mammoths, we finally got a date (March 25th in UK, March 27th in USA) and a price ($250) for the 3DS, AND Final Fantasy XIII-2 got officially announced and trailer'd. Furthermore, we figured out why Portal 2 on PS3 is the best version, shifted our rant-gammaray from CliffyB to David Cage, and laughed about Germany censoring Dead Space 2. Yes, there was a lot to talk about today folks, but not so much that we didn't get to bask in the glory of your voicemails (that number again is 775-55-DTOID). Also, we're doing a livestream on Monday! Let us know in the comments what games you want us to chat about.
Destructoid show episode 41, mega news edition! Lets go:
Story #1 - More Elder Scrolls Skyrim details revealed. No new gameplay footage, but we learned about NPCs, the Creation Engine, and wooly fucking mammoths.
Story #2 - Kongregate brings 300 games to the android‚Ä¶before it doesn't. Kongregate DID bring a ton of flash games to Android, but got nixed from the Market by Google.
Story #3 - Heavy Rain developer David Cage says stupid things. Including a bit about how Heavy Rain has made games a more meaningful medium.
Story #4 - 3DS launch details revealed. March 27 in the USA, $250. What's parallax 3d goodness worth to you?
Story #5 - Dead Space 2 censored in Germany. Apparently the concept of Friendly Fire doesn't sit too well over there.
Story #6 - Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a thing thats happening. So, there's that.
Story #7 - Portal 2 on PS3 is definitely the best version. Buy it for PS3, get it free on Mac and PC.
