Attempted the For a Horizon 4 demo on Xone, but was shocked at how stuttery it was. It was like trying to playa game on ultra, but only having the specs for High. I guess I'll stick to Assetto Corsa on PC.

 
 
 

Hard to get excited about this "Switch Online Now Available!" email when the primary feature was something I already enjoyed, and now am getting held ransom. Good pricing, but their advertising just makes this funny.Can only be so happy about Ice Climbers

 
 
 

First day with an Xbox anything impression: UI! WHY YOU SO SLOW? Oh, and is there any way to use my phone as a keyboard? The PlayStation app had that option, but I'm not seeing that on the Xbox app. Then again, this UI is taking some getting used to.

 
 
 

Gonna finally be gettingan Xbox One, despite have the other consoles. Game pass and backwards compatibility was what enticed me. Already ordered Lost Odyssey and Crimson Skies. Any other musts?

 
 
 

So apparently if you preorder Dragon Ball FighterZ on Switch, you also get Dragon Ball Z Super Butouden, which is a SNES fighting game. Really interesting

 
 
 

My Shenmue I & II impressions: You can still open all the drawers 10/10, still haven't opened all the drawers.

 
 
 

Hadn't made any orders on Amazon recently, so an email about a shipment was startling. I completely forgot that Shenmue I and II are released tomorrow. Neat. Assuming the ports aren't poop.

 
 
 

Going off of my qpost yesterday about Bethesda's legal abuse, I share this video. I love when this guy comes out to speak about game industry BS. Why? Because he's an actual copyright attorney.



 
 
 

I'm still quite peeved over that secondhand sale/Bethesda lawsuit thing. I quick checked how eBay defines 'Brand New' for games and yep...the guy seems perfectly in his right to label the item as 'new'. Source in comments.

 
 
 

Didn't realize that Monster Hunter World on PC has an emblem for your "main Steam group". Which reminded me that I joined the DTOID one some years ago. Neat.


 
 
 
 

Retro-mazing news: A new emulator will allow you to play the original NES Metroid with updated visuals to make it look like Super Metroid.

Ordered Octopath Traveler awhile ago and got $15 off through Google Express, but the blasted thing says it's still in pre-shipment...But I do have my H'aanit alt box art ready. These My Nintendo alt covers look pretty nice.

 
 
 

Playing Beat Saber for the first time will be a memorable moment. Haven't had that much fun with a rhythm game since my first jam session on Rocksmith 2014. Just amazing

 
 
 

Heads up, Amazon just emailed out that Shenmue 1 and 2 is arriving August 21st. Sooner than I thought

 
 
 

Pocket Rumble on Switch is so good. It has a great tutorial that really goes deep like in Skullgirls. However, the inputs really lower the barrier for entry while still feeling satisfying. I wholly recommend Pocket Rumble.

 
 
 

Destiny 2 is free to play this weekend through PS Plus, and I'm still struggling to care. Got about as far as the beta took you.

 
 
 

Donald: We know what you did. Goofy: If I look at him, I'll lose it. http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/KH3%20.jpg

 
 
 

I really wanted a bonus single player expansion for Splatoon 2, but not like this...

 
 
 

Just saw the Halo reveal trailer. I've never owned an Xbox console, so Halo 1 PC was my life for many years. I read the description of the official video, "Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive." I never thought I'd see the day

 
 
 

With Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, Ikaruga, Mega Man (&X) Legacy Collections, and so many other retromazing games coming out (or that have released)...I REALLY miss RetroforceGO. I just want to hear Chad, Topher, Collette, Dyson, and friends gush.

 
 
 

My last QP was on March 8th, and I said I couldn't order a Solaire amiibo. It is now May 23rd, I finally ordered a Solaire amiibo. Everyone is safe now.

 
 
 

I can't order a Solaire amiibo. Someone is going to get beat

 
 
 

It was just the third hunt in MH World and I ended it with two Rathian plates. That was a pleasant surprise

I first discovered Destructoid through RetroforceGO! and their Halloween '07 episode, fell in love, finally registered in April of '08, and I have stuck around ever since.




I frequently perform professionally around my area as a double bassist for some of my local symphony orchestras and other places that are willing to pay up.
