"So, Mobile games are kinda bullshit, right?" See Blizzard? THIS is how you announce a Mobile spin-off of your games without being condescending to your core audience. I also love the many subtle (and not so subtle) jabs at Blizz themselves :P


I randomly decided to give Yooka-Laylee another go this weekend and I ended up completing it 100%. I'd still recommend A Hat In Time over this any day of the week, but... I dunno, I still like it very much and I still had a lot of fun completing it.


Sheesh, the PS2 era wasn't kind to SNK.


Picked another pupil to teach the ropes of Guild Wars 2. He's 10 years older than me, but he seems genuinely excited to see what the game offers. I got a little nervous at first, but he sounded like a chill guy when I talked to him over Discord.


At least I managed to get back into the gym, but oh boy, after a month or so without going it's gonna take me a while to return to my previous routine.


RDR 2 on PC seems like an absolute shitshow. Horrible optimization that harkens back to the early GTA IV PC days and people who purchased it on Rockstar's own launcher are dealing with iffy refund policies. Right now it's pretty much a $60 Early AAAccess.


I decided to change my desk a little bit last night.


Happy Birthday Chris Moyse! You're always bringing us good vibes to this place, sometimes when we REALLY need them, I always enjoy your writting in the front page and you're one of the few people around here who actually deeply care about Killer Instinct.


I genuinely believe that Alien Resurrection on the PS1 is a technical marvel considering the hardware it was made for (framerate greatly improves on an emulator) and the atmosphere is a thing of beauty, but GOOD LORD THIS GAME IS FUCKING HARD!


Well... They did the thing. Take it or leave it, but personally... I think it's a start, but they didn't adress the elephant (Winnie Pooh?) in the room; the three big words that got them into trouble in the first place: Blitzchung, Hong Kong and/or China.


Gonna rewatch The Void for the day of spooks and spoops, good ol' cosmic horror to ponder upon our insignificance. And speaking of existential dread, SOMA is free in the Epic Store, go grab it if you haven't.


As a fan of "choose your own adventure" style media, this is deeply satisfying to watch. 31 endings and an ARG? I seriously didn't expect this much effort put into something so silly. It's also genuinely funny and witty at parts :P


It's crazy to think that The Thing was critically lambasted when it originally released.


My internet is a bit iffy at the moment (one of the perks of living near a forest), but I ain't complaining, I can focus on my backlog some more. Currently focusing on Blasphemous and while I do have some minor complaints, I'm definitely loving it.


The speedrun category to end all speedruns, how fast can someone get a virtual Italian plumber to strip?


An animation collab has never been so... NAAAAAAUGHTY~


I really liked Gears 5, but this is one of the reasons I don't consider it GOTY material; it doesn't have loot boxes, but boy oh boy does it make it up with LOTS of grinding. Want to skip all that? You have the pay to skip the grind. Yeah, no thanks.


With some Homebrewing witchcraft and wizardry (Overclocking), The Switcher 3 is capable of running at 60 FPS in portable mode! (540p) In fact, the port is indeed based on the PC version and it still has a few neat hidden graphical effects to enable!


Bloober Team's best game, Observer, is available for free in the Epic Games Store. You can't go wrong with this Blade Runner-esque (the protagonist is voiced by Rutger Hauer) spooky cyberpunk noir game. Truly wonderful.


I... Want to vent some personal issues I’ve been struggling with lately, so I'll write what I've been going through in the comments. You don't have to read if you don't want, but I feel like I need to get this off my chest.

Hey there!, I am a Mexican gamer in my early 30's and welcome to my little corner of nonsensical rants!

Add me to Steam or Discord as Rad Party God#5799 if you want, I'm fairly easygoing, I love to talk about nerdy stuff and maybe play some games! ^.^

My current platform of choice is the PC, contrary to popular beliefs, I'm not part of the infamous PC Mastah Rice, I just enjoy playing stuff there and I can afford it, simple as that.

I grew up in the 90's, so naturally, I love to post as many 90's references as I can. Many of the most influential games I've played are from the 90's, specifically from the 5th generation (PS1 and N64).

I'm not listing an arbitrary list of "best gaems evah", but I'll definitely include some of the games that pretty much shaped my tastes and what I expect from a video game nowadays, also they're pretty darn good:

-Super Metroid
-Chrono Trigger
-Super Mario 64
-Anything from Rare on the N64
-Every major 3D Zelda game (yes, even Skyward Sword)
-Crash Bandicoot 1 ~ 3
-Halo 1~3
-Metal Gear Solid 1/Twin Snakes ~ 3
-Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
-Castlevania Rondo of Blood / Symphony of The Night / Chronicles
-Silent Hill 1 ~ 3
-Resident Evil Remake/2/3/4
-Dino Crisis 2
-MediEvil 1/2
-Devil May Cry 1/3/4 (2 sucks)
-Turok 2
-Half-Life 1/2
-Doom 1/2
-Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
-Eternal Darkness
-F-Zero GX
-Metroid Prime Trilogy
-Fallout 1 ~ 3 / New Vegas
-TES: Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim
-Thief Gold / 2
-Guild Wars 1/2
-The Secret World (Legends sucks)
-Sonic Generations
-Sonic Racing Transformed
-Wolfenstein: The New Order /
-The Old Blood
-The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
-Dark Souls 1 ~ 3
-Killer Instinct 2013
-Axiom Verge
-Doom 2016
-Titanfall 2
-Sonic Mania
-Hollow Knight

And remember:
I'm always watching.

Your good deeds will not go unnoticed.

A wild Rad Party God appeared on planet Destructoid!

Yes, this is the Rad Party God. On Destructoid, it is considered a real rager to affix one's self to the bed of a lake and sit patiently for eons. This particular creature has been partying for over fourteen millions turbo-years, which is space equates roughly to two episodes of The Ellen Degeneres Show. Anything able to withstand more than thirty seconds of Ellen is truly a God of partying. - weslikestacos

I Googled for my name The Hedgehog and this was the result. That may or may not be my real name.
