As much as I like rooting for the underdog and would be nice to get Germany out of our way, I can't bring myself not to cheer for Germany. I have so much respect for them. What a team. What a spectacle. What determination. Hats off. This was amazing.


 
 
 

I was at the edge of my seat watching Germany v Sweden. I'm amazed that Germany manage to make that 2nd goal even with one player down.

 
 
 
 

Anyone else get the impression that Captain Toad is suicidal? He has a habit of hiding in dangerous and remote locations.

 
 
 

Does anyone want to be my friend so that I may shower you with gifts?


 
 
 

The zombies game genre still seems quite overcrowded, and yet devs keep making and releasing more zombie games on Steam. This trend seems harder to stop than the military shooter.

 
 
 

Anyone have any good sci-fi show suggestions at the moment? Preferably fun, ridiculous fluff like Dark Matter. I deal with enough drama stuff all week. xD. Animated works too. I don't have enough things to watch to balance out the daily blah lately.

 
 
 

Streaming XCom War of the Chosen with country covers of popular songs today. @taterchimp on twitch. I'm blind to the DLC, so this should be interesting.

 
 
 

I got 3 arch tempered Vaal Hazak tickets at once, I am extremely blessed

 
 
 

Wife and I finished Overcooked! Had no issues 3-starring every level until the last world came along and SOMEONE wouldn't stay with their soup.....

 
 
 
 

Finished my first playthrough of Hollow Knight. I know there's a lot I missed, but getting the Speed Completion achievement for my first full playthrough is nice.


 
 
 

Good morning Destructoid. Keep it real today

 
 
 

Haven't there been multiple occasions where this game was labeled "Done" and no more updates? Not that I have a problem with it.


 
 
 

Man, the Octo Expansion keeps finding new ways to demoralize me...


 
 
 
 

Anybody want to play Duck Game (Steam) with me?

 
 
 
 

My daughter is amazing.


 
 
 

Another great D&D session! Our nearly year long campaign is quickly reaching its climax! Giant scorpions, speaking with mice, disguising themselves as waiters and chefs, bribing a band for a distraction, and a sunset sprint to their next destination.

 
 
 

Man, Vinnie Paul fucking died. Pantera will always be one of my favorite bands, and he was a pretty big inspiration to me as a drummer.



 
 
 

My senator just sent me his pitch chock full of politically correct words for "internment camp." I told him to go fuck himself and that his resignation would be the real improvement

 
 
 

Thanks to the wizards over at the (incredibly useful) Tip of My Tongue subreddit, I've found out the name of an old VHS I used to have. It's so strange that an anime from 1978 got a Swedish dub on VHS years later. Anime this old is adorable.



 
 
 

Can't say anything good about the future of your 'stache, either.


 
 
 

Multiplayer in Mario Tennis Aces is extremely frustrating when your opponent is better than you, but damn thrilling when you're on equal footing. Had a fantastic match of Goodest Boy vs. Boo start with two Breaks leading into two heavily contested Games.

Rocker Power Beach Bandits is the weirdest licensed game I've played


Rocket Power was one of those early late-90s Nick shows I simply liked, but boy did I watch it a ton. I didn’t love it, but I never saw any other show about kids pursuing their passion for extreme sports, so it stuck out to me. ...

Destructoid community showdown: Ghost of Tsushima vs Sekiro vs Nioh 2
