Hello Dtoid! My internet access remains poor, and time for video games all but non-existent, but I just wanted to check in and say hi. I hope you’re all doing well and plenty of cool video games news has happened to be excited about

 
 
 

Hey Dtoid! I’m working somewhere with no reliable WiFi right now, but just wanted to drop in and say hi. Hope you’re all doing well!

 
 
 

Good morning Destructoid. Get out there and punch life in the balls today!


 
 
 
 

PSA: Helldivers is pretty fun. Give it a try on the free weekend if you haven’t.

 
 
 

I finally got a new laptop! Hooray! Any suggestions for good software to throw on it?

 
 
 

Spooktober update: I finished Guacamelee, and it was excellent. I give it 10/10 skeletons. I haven’t 100% it though, so I may keep playing to do that

 
 
 

I started Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, but I just wasn't feeling it so soon after beating Super Castlevania IV. Noticed I had Guacamelee on my Wii U and booted that up instead, and I'm absolutely loving it. Spooktober continues!

 
 
 

This week's #arbitrarymetaltuesday is dedicated to a band I saw live the other week and are still stuck in my head. Very much more than the sum of their parts, they elevate what could have easily been a joke theme into a very strong band.



 
 
 

Spooky Games Month update! I finished Super Castlevania IV. It was indeed super. Next: should I play Castlevania Circle of the Moon or Harmony of Dissonance?

 
 
 
 

Heads up, it’s the last day of theyetee.com’s spooky designs. They have some pretty cool ones, including a Morrigan Darkstalkers one if you, like me, continue to delude yourself into thinking there will one day be another game. But this is my favorite


 
 
 

Thanks again to everyone for those gifs yesterday. It really lifted my spirits. Feeling a little better today, but still pretty immobile. Putting in some quality time with the 3DS

 
 
 

Happy birthday Mike! You put in a lot of work here, you deserve a vacation. How about Mexico? It sounds pretty nice



 
 
 

I just got out of surgery. Not serious, and it was successful, but I’m in a lot of pain and the meds are making me sick. Can you all post some gifs to make me laugh or help me get my mind off the pain? I wouldn’t normally ask, but damn this hurts

 
 
 

Spooky games month is almost here! What are you going to play? I’m going to play Super Castlevania and Circle of the Moon, and maybe RE 1 if I have time. And of course, a few rounds of Darkstalkers

 
 
 

Happy (belated) birthday Nathan D and Inquisitive Ravenclaw! You guys help make this place special!

 
 
 

Is Dragon Ball FighterZ good as a fighting game, or mostly for serious dragon ball fans? I’m in the mood for a fighting game and just can’t get into SFV, I’m thinking of trying something new

 
 
 

I left my house normal and came back a weeb. Please, send help! Good thing I also bought Shadow Warrior


 
 
 

I have a special #arbitrarymetaltuesday for you today in honor of my birthday last week. This one comes off my favorite album of all time, Eluveitie’s “Slania”. If you’re a fan of folk metal at all and haven’t heard it, I can’t recommend it en



 
 
 

What’s been your favorite Spider-Man mission so far? I really like the one where you shake down Girl Scout troupes by smashing their cookie selling tables and threatening them verbally unless they pay protection money

 
 
 

I bought Spider-Man yesterday after all the positivity about it, and it absolutely lives up to the praise. It’s easily as good as Spider-Man 2 when it came out, and that’s a high bar to hit

 
 
 

Sunday question time: what’s your favorite driving game? Not racing game mind, but driving, where the scenery and the journey are just as important as the car you’re driving and the manner in which you do so?

 
 
 

I think a couple people on here have Acer Predator Helio 300 laptops right? How do you all like them, not just for gaming, but for everyday use? Is the non-gaming battery life decent? Any problems or quality of life issues you’ve had?

 
 
 

Happy birthday homeoftheblues! Don’t forget to boot up Animal Crossing for some free stuff!

What would any video game be without a sewer level? Or at least ankle to waist high water?
