So the Microsoft/Activision thing...I feel like I'm watching the beginning of the next big industry crash. Anyone else? Or am I going crazy(er)?

 
 
 

Since it'll be a while before we see the inevitable Ghost of Tsushima 2, could Sucker Punch be kind and release a inFamous: Second Son Director's Cut? Maybe package it with First Light and add some shit to do after finishing the story?

 
 
 
 

My GOTY + Quick reviews for EVERY game I played in 2021 in the comments (minus replays).


 
 
 

Alright time for this ol' chestnut. Games, books, movies, music. If you could only recommend ONE thing from any or all categories that you played/read/watched/listened to this year, what would it be? (Also please be respectful of peoples' answers)

 
 
 

Bollywood Scott Pilgrim is already my GOTY.

 
 
 

I know Gamestop is not exactly popular, but they've got some decent holiday prices for games. I nabbed Sackboy Adventure ($30) and Deathloop ($25) when I picked up Kena. Also it was Buy 2, Get 1 Free, so Deathloop was $0 for me.

 
 
 

Surprising no one, the Uncharted movie looks bad.



 
 
 

Beat Dread. Dropping my thoughts in the comments. There will be #spoilers. You have been warned.

 
 
 

Happy birthday Mike!


 
 
 

I can't believe hell froze over while I was asleep.

 
 
 

Just beat In Sound Mind. I think this might be my Game of the Year. Absolutely fantastic game. Don't sleep on it.

 
 
 

Play In Sound Mind.


 
 
 
 

I'm looking forward to the day when we get to look back at the live action Super Mario Bros movie and be able to refer to it as "the good one."

 
 
 

Happy birthday Ravenclaw! I bring you both a blessing and a curse as a gift. I hope it's a good one and I am sorry to your wallet!


 
 
 

I may have found my new favorite mashup. Created by DJCummerbund.



 
 
 

I miss Modnation Racers...

 
 
 

If you were one of the people who enjoyed Nexomon: Extinction you might be interested to learn that the first game in the series is now on consoles. Only $10, too! I really liked Extinction myself, so I'm pretty stoked.


 
 
 

I'm sure there's folks here that'll get a kick out of this.



 
 
 

New Joker just dropped.


 
 
 

Product pitch: It's a trading card game, but all the cards are recipe cards.

 
 
 
 

Norm Macdonald has passed away. Never going to be another like him. Truly a unique comedian.



 
 
 

Was just about to start New Game + on Tsushima but it does the annoying thing New Game + does in Horizon Zero Dawn where it just skips the beginning of the game. It's like re-reading a book but you skip the first few chapters. Why isn't this optional?

 
 


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, Wes's Unofficial Father, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer and aspiring writer. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
