My backlog/rotation has gotten a bit out of control, so I wrote it down if anyone cares to take a peek or tell me what to play next. Pic unrelated.


 
 
 

Anyway, here’s Gilbert Gottfried singing the One Piece theme. Have a great weekend!



 
 
 

I've never used Half-Price Books before and I don't like how my order is shipping everything separately...but overall I still think I'm saving this way. I'll report back in 8 - 14 days to report on what they mean by "used - good condition"

 
 
 

TGIF is up over in the community blogs! Don't be shy, come say hi and let us know how your week went along with all your weekend plans!


 
 
 

Guess the Dice awards are dumb too. I’m not going to lie, I held them in higher esteem than I apparently should have. Ah well. Congrats to those MKT devs anyway!


 
 
 
 

"DER NACHTAMHR / Pretzel bun, spicy beer cheese sauce, bacon and fried pickled jalapeños." Oh...oh fuck yeah.


 
 
 

Finished Night In The Woods just there finally, overall really good game with some really good writting. Ending kinda just came out of nowhere/feels cliffhangery and the bits of the main mystery guy wasn't great but it wasn't what made up much of the game

 
 
 

Got something real cool for real cheap, an original!


 
 
 

Rewatching Mortal Komatsu Annihilation for the first time in forever and I think it just exists to make the first movie look much, much better. Annihilation even looks like straight-to-home-video knock-off.

LDS continuing to be the worst. Lauren was a member of the church for 34 years, and I just don't get surprised at how vile it is. https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2021/04/22/mormon-sex-therapist-expelled-lds-church/

 
 
 

200 posts already? To think I wasn't sure about posting here but it has been fulfilling in more ways than one. I don't know if I had shared this over here before, but it is a good time as any.


 
 
 

I've been playing Lair of the Clockwork God, and it's a neat and funny little combo of platforming and point-and-click of all things. I like how the gameplay styles are kept separate by having two characters, one of whom just refuses to do any jumping.


 
 
 

Super Robot Wars news in July let's gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


 
 
 

Last night I went to see Epic's Core dev tools. But it brings you to its portal hub to try the different games. It was fun! If you played the Source mods on PC, it's basically that. The games I tried were fun and even distracted me from the dev tools.

 
 
 

It’s weird that Jet Set Radio Future never got a re-release. One of the few titles that doesn’t have backwards comparability too. Shame. It’s a great game.

 
 
 
 

Happy Friday, everyone. Planning on some more classic FF7 this weekend and reading more of Alice in Borderland. Loved the Netflix show so now I'm reading the manga

 
 
 
 

Hey Destructoid! Am I cool again?


 
 
 
 

Good lord, where are the weeks going? I hope this has been a great one for all of you. If not, then perhaps you can turn it around this weekend. One amazing afternoon can make up for a wealth of bad ones, so make one happen for you. Have a good weekend x


 
 
 
 

Never heard of this game before but was mentioned in a switch sale video that it is on sale now on the eshop for around €4.Looks like it might be really good and it got some really postive reviews actualy. Mo Astray is a weird name for any game though.

Game In Progress: January, February, March 2021

How to fix Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon A Time


Evangelion 3.0+1.0 was a mixed bag for most people. While it was nowhere near as bad as Eva 3.0, it still suffered from a lack of a clear vision. Most of what was shown, such as Hikari and Toji being married and Misato and Kaji's offsp...

Here's why Nintendo decided to make Super Mario 3D All-Stars a limited release


Here's a video that analyzes why they did this. In short, it's a business decision. They want their sales to be compact, especially on re-releases where people are more likely to wait before they buy the game.
