I’m in a Star Wars mood today and sad that the new Battlefront games are meh. What’s your favorite Star Wars game and why?


I just bought the first 6 seasons of Adventure time because I’m an adult


Played Endless Space 2 last night and had a blast, until I realized you get a big disaproval rating if you conquer too many systems. Kind of puts a damper on the whole “xpansion” part of 4X. Why don’t my people want to conquer the galaxy like I do??


So Uncharted: Lost Legacy was pretty good! The gameplay is as you’d expect, bringing in everything Uncharted 4 offered, but they did a good job with the characterization for the most part. I would play another one


It’s too hot to do anything today, so I’m just gonna sit home and play video games. Uncharted: Lost Legacy time!


I ended up ordering one of the Brook ps3 to ps4 converters. I’ll post what I think when it arrives.

Anyone know a good PS3 to PS4 usb fight stick adapter? Doesn’t have to be tournament quality, just good enough for online/local. Bump: do these fit in the PS4s semi-recessed usb slots?


I saw a single Time Crisis 2 cabinet for sale yesterday, and that's just sad. Like a special edition version for people with no friends


Does street fighter anniversary on PS4 have an option to use PS3 sticks?


I have $26 in 3DS eshop credit. Do I buy Super Mario Land, Pokemon Sapphire, and Earthbound; All the Picross games; or take a chance on Bloodstained Curse of the Moon? Or is there another hidden gem I need to try?


Things I never thought I'd be asked in a professional setting: "How many of you have seen an orifice?"


The combination of 3D mode on the regular 3DS and gyroscopic controls is not a happy marriage


I wish Nintendo would add more SNES games to the 3DS VC


I'm pretty bummed out about the VC cancellation. I have no interest in a subscription service, but I was looking forward to being able to play N64 and (hopefully) GCN games on the go. I'll be waiting a lot longer on getting a Switch now


Just got out of infinity Wars. That was the best movie I've seen in ages! My friends nearly leapt from their seats


I'm about to travel for work, living out of a hotel for a month. planning on only bringing the SNES classic and reliving simpler times


What would you consider to be the essential games to own on the 3DS? Eshop and physical are fair game. Doesn't necessarily have to be exclusive. My top picks is Animal Crossing New Leaf and Outrun 3D


Just saw Ready Player One. I liked it! Not much substance, and no story we haven't seen before, but good harmless fun


I wish we could get another good 007 game. I'd settle for an OK one honestly. But I do miss that series


I tried R6 Siege's outbreak mode. It's a pretty good concept, but limited as is. I'd play a game built around it, with more variety in weapons, maps, and enemies, and the ability to have people join your game after one guy DCs half way through


Down with a cold this weekend. Feeling too crappy to play anything remotely on my to play list. Guess I'll just lie down and watch some Netflix and play some Animal Crossing while waiting to be able to breathe again


Did we ever pick a bloggers wanted prompt for this month, or did I just miss it?


Have a great time at EGLX Destructoid! Next time come to SoCal and I'll see you there!


Does anyone have a GTX 1060? If so, how do you like it? Do you find it's still doing well for 1080? I have a line on a deal on one, but I don't want to buy something that'll only last for a year or two


Today is the first day I've had in weeks to actually sit down and play videogames for more than an hour. I know I can't follow through on starting anything new right now, so I think I'll make a dent in Skyrim

I've been reading destruction since 2012, but was too lazy to make an account for the longest time. I'm so glad I finally did. I love most genre's of video games, especially platformers, old school FPSs, fighting games, and exploration/story heavy RPGs. I also enjoy heavy metal, guitar, and potatoes. Super Mario Sunshine is my favorite Mario game.
