TGIF Open Thread!

Hello, Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! Our friend Chrono is getting married today, so here I am to cover for him. My week was okay. Only had three days of work since yesterday was a holiday and the compa...


TGIF Open Thread!

Hello, Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! I'm officially in anxiety mode as we enter the Mortal Kombat 1 launch week! After almost 17 years of waiting to see Ashrah again, the day is nearly here - it's alm...


TGIF Open Thread!

Hello, Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! I officially have a cover for my book πŸ™Œ I need to set up a Goodreads page (still struggling a bit with the blurb, I swear this is harder than writing the actual...


TGIF Open Thread!

Hello, Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! Passing quickly through because I must go back to the Mortal Kombat 1 beta πŸ‘€ Should I be working? Nah! I finished my tasks, and my boss released me to play the g...

TGIF Open Thread!

Hello, Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! A sad week on Destructoid, unfortunately. If you have missed the latest events, Gamurs (Destructoid's new owners) fired our great Chris Moyse without any warning, ...


I've just seen the shitshow that happened here (thanks Chrono for the heads-up!), so I'll drop my new Cohost profile here. Can't post yet, but I'll be following you guys in the meantime! https://cohost.org/QueenNioiclin


I have a date with Kitana!!! (Or with Mileena if she's in the build, but whatever, the important is - I'M IN!!!)


One of the bad parts about having a not-so-popular Mortal Kombat character as your favourite is that it's hard to find fan art, especially good fan art. Then today, I found this incredible piece fresh from the oven - and I'm in love πŸ₯°


I wasn't sure if I was going to watch the 3rd MK animated film... then they release the cast list and MY GIRL ASHRAH IS IN THERE!!! I hope the film will do her justice because the 2nd one was... not great. Now, pleeeease, confirm her spot in MK 1!! πŸ₯ΊοΏ½


My favourite video game turns 10 today! Happy Anniversary, The Last of Us! πŸ’š


Yesterday, I posted some things that were being discovered as people played Mortal Kombat 1. Today, I wrote a blog with all that juicy gameplay and lore details! If you're curious, here's the link :D https://www.destructoid.com/--674227.phtml#post


unCAGEDgamez and Caboose were among the first people to play the new Mortal Kombat 1. He recorded a few matches, which I think gives us a better notion of the second-to-second gameplay. Honestly? It looks fantastic! Can't wait to try it out for myself :3


Very few people saw it during the MK 1 gameplay trailer, but he was there! Who's ready to have Hsu Hao back?! πŸ˜†


Crappy image quality, but man! This stance, this outfit, those kombos - my Queen is back (and this time it seems like she really is queen!) πŸ’œ


Oh, damn, Ed Boon confirmed that someone from MK 4 will come back in MK 1! It got to be Reiko... right?! πŸ‘€ (But please, bring Mileena's lover back too, they deserve happiness in this new era!)


Sometimes YouTube's recommendations are good, and this time it introduced me to this lovely dark-fantasy RPG with... mermaids! I'm not a fan of underwater levels in games, but this feels like it could make me appreciate video game water!


Since I have nothing better to do, here's my kharacter wishlist for Mortal Kombat 1(2). But ah, it's a very good feeling when one of your favourites is already confirmed! More thoughts in the comments.


Is this the timeline where we'll finally get Mileena and Kitana as sisters rather than rivals? And Scorpion and Sub-Zero as best buds? Thank you, Fire God Liu Kang πŸ™Œ


Guerrilla finally found a way to fix the Aerial Capture North for (apparently) every player. And that means I now completed the trophy list for both the main Horizon: Forbidden West and its DLC πŸ™Œ Aloy, enjoy your break - you deserve it, hon!


The Paths to Mortal Kombat 12

NetherRealm Studios has recently published a video thanking the fans for Mortal Kombat's 30th anniversary. At the end of the video, there's a short teaser for MK 12 - in fact, it's just an exploding sand particle, referencing back to K...


NetherRealm Studios published a video thanking all of the fans for making Mortal Kombat's 30th anniversary possible. 30 years, wow! Happy Birthday, MK! πŸ₯³ At the end of the video, there's a "teaser" for MK 12, but it shows nothing, really lol


Horizon: Burning Shores review - AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH! πŸ€­πŸ˜­πŸ€— 10/10 Okay, maybe by Saturday I'll have recomposed myself enough to find more words. For now, since an image is worth a thousand words, I'll let Aloy speak in my place:


Perhaps you're tired of seeing my Forbidden West screenshots, but oh well. Aloy and I had just defeated a Slaughterspine, and while I waited for an opportunity to jump on another drone, I noticed she was gesturing and making some faces at me (comments)...
