Anyone remember the last time Michael Pachter made sense?

 
 

I'm getting less bummed out about Steve's inclusion and getting more excited to get my hands on them. I'm really interested in how they play and I hope they drop on Saturday after the presentation. And Sakurai roasting Nintendo for this was a highlight

 
 

Well that was frustratingly awful. Honest congrats to anyone who nabbed a Series X pre-order. Best Buy decided to be a tease with one in my cart for about an hour before telling me they ran out.

 
 

Haven't seen the conference yet, but looking at the news it looked a banger. Miles Morales coming to PS4, new FF and GOW, and playable Vergil (PS4 too, hopefully?) My money is going to the Series X this year, but that's still a damn good show.

 
 

Interesting news - NIS is delisting Rodea from the Wii U and 3DS eshops on the 29th. However, they've deeply discounted the physical versions of both games at their online store. Could make for a nice little collectible. (Link in comments)


 
 
 

Wrapped up Borderlands 3 this past weekend. TLDR; surprised that the writing gets better over time, love playing as a sarcastic Irishman, and I begrudgingly...like Ava. Despite her bullshit. Want to post more thoughts later.

 
 

DOOM Eternal got a patch that nerfs weapon swap speed to the point where it's no longer a character action game. Apparently it was done for fairness in the MP no one plays. Damn.

 
 

Back in on Borderlands 3 after picking up a used copy at my local shop, and maaaan what the fuck is this inventory management and how was/is it a good idea?

 
 

Was loving Minecraft Dungeons on my Switch until I ran into the infinite loading glitch. How lovely.

 
 

Bouncing off W101 super hard. The mechanics aren't clicking and it's getting frustrating not seeing attacks coming at you due to the perspective. It's insanely charming for sure, but I'm not having as much fun with it as I'd hoped.

 
 

Hey Dtoid - I'm looking to upgrade my chair game. Been researching the Secret Lab Omega chairs but was wondering if y'all had suggestions or opinions on Omega or other options.

 
 

Hey Doom Eternal players - avoid using the IDKFA cheat until Id releases a patch. It's been glitching and rearranging the weapon mods when you go back to the main campaign. Heads up.

 
 

Whatcha playing on your 3DS, Destructoid? (Sorry for stealing your bit, Moyse).

 
 

I love what I love. Also, this thing is great if you want to play something while zoning out to YouTube videos at the same time.


 
 

You know it's bad when your fiancee, who hasn't touched a Pokemon game since X&Y, also thinks Hop is an insufferable piece of work.

 
 

Continuing from my last QPost - Bloodstained Switch still needs work, but it's not a total loss. Aside from bits of missing audio, aside from the shortcut menu removing my weapon, it's a great fuckin game @ $20.

 
 

Nabbed Bloodstained and SR 3 for the Switch at $20 a piece from Best Buy this weekend, knowing full well they had rocky starts. Haven't tested Bloodstained out yet, but I haven't run into any troubles with SR 3. Looks like they fixed it.

 
 

Appreciating how Jedi: Fallen Order doesn't beat you over the head with it's FromSoft mechanics and more eases them in naturally as you play. Less 'forced' (ha), more 'homage.'

 
 

Anyone know how big the Smash 6.0 update is g.b.-wise? No Wi-Fi at work so I was going to use my phone's data. Don't want to nuke the data I have left, though.

 
 

I know we're not about the SPORTS here but I'm legit bummed out that Deadspin is effectively dead because some rich asshole told them to "stick to sports" and they didn't listen. Fuck Jim Spanfeller.

 
 

So I bought the D.VA Switch controller because someone here said that Power A paid the licensing fee so sales would go to them, not Blizzard. But are there not royalties involved as well? Should I return this thing? I don't want Bliz (CONT'D IN COMMENTS)

 
 

I cannot get Sayonara Wild Hearts out of my goddamned head. It's not just the music, it's the whole, damn...thing. Christ almighty that's one of the best games I've played this year.

 
 

Apparently Bioware posted a blog update yesterday about the state of Anthem and it's pretty much "We're listening." I feel really bad for the folks that bought this thing at launch. http://blog.bioware.com/2019/09/17/what-is-next-for-anthem/

 
 

I mean, do you not lab CrossTag at your local game bar while Super Madnes is playing a set?


 
 
 

Watched a video of the unlockable skins in MUA 3 earlier this morning and...ehhhhhh.

 
 

The dude Gigguk put out a great tribute to KyoAni yesterday. Definitely set aside 10 mins of your time to take a look. https://youtu.be/bTl0BBrw3Y0

 
 
 

Hey Nintendo, happy for the Switch Lite and whatever Pro model you might be coming out with down the road. IF YOU COULD SETTLE DOWN FOR A MOMENT AND FIX THE JOY-CON DRIFT ISSUE I'D BE EVEN MORE HAPPY.

Hello! LegendPenguin here! I've been lurking around DToid for years (seven) but my posts have been massively sporadic. Seeing great things happening here keeps pushing me to try harder to make more out of my time.
