Although a lot of people overlook it, I think my favorite advancement this generation has to be the rise of minimal/contextual HUDs. Having more room outside bars and numbers for the game to shine really makes me feel like I'm part of the world.


For today's Cursedmas, have a theremin in the cannibalized skull of a baby doll. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't posting this almost specifically because it seems like the kind of thing Occams would be interested in buying.


Happy birthday Ravenclaw you’re cool and I love you please DM me on Discord from time to time you dick.


Destructoid's official Discord requires you to add your phone number on Discord before you can use chat? Lmao, naw fam.


Been playing a good amount of Warframe lately and I spent more time than I'd like to admit on my Gauss. Also, my apologies for not posting here more. Qposts kind of slip my mind.


Outside of Nintendo's presser this has probably been one of the single most unbearable E3s I've ever had the displeasure of watching. Although each conference had a least one really neat looking game announced, so I guess it's not all bad. Little things.


Just saw the third John Wick movie! It was really good! I haven't seen the first ones, but I still more than understood the plot. Also there were copious amounts of very good boys. I really wanna check out the first two movies now, too.


Who survived The Great Dtoid Updatening? Sound off.


My younger brother gave me a $20 Steam gift card for my birthday today but I’m not sure what to get with it. Does anyone have any good FPS/open world/immersive sim/survival horror game recommendations for $20-40?


Do any of the semi-older users here remember how long ago it was that Phil, Spencer, Lucha, and Foom streamed for Destructoid? I've been trying to remember for a good few days now and I can't.


What should have been a quick thirty or so minute trip to GameStop ended up being almost two hours, but I finally got my hands on a copy of the Fallout board game expansion. More pictures in the comments.


So GOG is ending its fair pricing program in March (which offered lower prices in countries the currency wasn't as strong out of GOG's own pockets). Apparently given their plans to lower their cut from developers, they can't foot the bill anymore.


I finally did it! I got 100% in RE2, excluding the DLC. That includes all the items, weapons, models, and concept art as well. With that, I think I can finally put it to rest (heh) for the time being. Definitely going to come back later to do DLC, though!


After hours of blood, sweat, and frustration (I'm so sorry for putting you through that, Claire) I finally managed to get S+ on her hardcore A route. This is genuinely one of my proudest gaming moments.


And there it is! It ended up not being as hard as I thought it would, so I'm changing my plans for the game. I think I'm gonna S+ each route, and then go for a hardcore S or S+. Then I can really really really quit for real this time.


I finally did it. No, /you/ have a problem.


On my Claire A run I finally managed to get S rank! Apparently there's also an S+ rank, but that's more of a restrictive challenge mode from what I can tell. I could have clocked in at under three hours, but I did my RPD section out of order and got lost.


With the release of the Resident Evil 2 remake coming up, I'd like to remind people in qposts that this will be the first time many people experience the game, and formally beseech you to be wary of spoiling major aspects of it. Big thanks.


I forgot to post this earlier when I was sharing it on Discord and stuff, but I drew Lotte from LWA today as a practice for the new drawing program I put on my tablet. It feels good to draw again.


I got an email from Ubisoft asking me to fill out a survey on my experience with Project Stream, and apparently getting a free copy of the game that I'll actually *own*. I assumed the "free game" thing just referring to being able to play the beta. Nice!


Oh duck off, Epic. Instead of spending money on buying exclusivity to strong-arm people into using your platform, how about you actually fix your awful refund policy, data-harvesting, non-existent social features, and flagrant privacy violations? Hmmm?


I broke my obscenely long hiatus from drawing to do this Akko. It still needs a fair amount of cleaning up, but whether or not I actually bother to do that remains to be seen. It was fun drawing again, though.


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s mercenary system is a ton of fun. You can fight procedurally generated bounty hunters that are much tougher than normal enemies for high-end loot and rewards. And if you get wanted in an area, they’ll chase you down.


Hey malákas. I got into the closed beta of Google's new Project Stream, mostly out of morbid curiosity. After an hour, I have to say I'm monumentally surprised, but with important reservations. More thoughts in the comments and feel free to ask questions


I just want to give a huge, huge shoutout to Vxxy for being an absolutely fantastic friend and surprising me with this wonderful Christmas gift. Also he could make it an even wonderfuler Christmas gift by playing Far Cry 5 with me, wink wink nudge nudge.


Here's my contribution to #Carporntoid that also doubles as a way of showing off the Lotte Yanson paint job I spent far too many hours making.


I tore apart and cleaned my gaming rig to prep for the new graphics card I bought. Considering my 750 was budget when it came out in 2014, the new 1060 6GB I bought is going to be a massive step up for me. I’m really excited, but also apprehensive.


My beautiful robo-birb boy! He's coming!


I did the thing you guys! Am I a good American yet?
