Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?


Runnin' through mah veins...

It's that time of year again. EVO time - Yes, already. That time when the fighting game community's eyes fall on the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, where the greatest players from around the world have gathered to throw down on the scene's greatest fighting games and also Super Smash Bros.


I keed, I keed, park that shit. In fact, this year will see Nintendo's crossover fighter take the main stage for the weekend's Grand Finale. Not too bad for a title that the publisher fought, for years, to keep out of EVO altogether. Besides, this means I don't have to stay up until the wee hours to watch the Street Fighter finals. Speaking of, I reinstalled Street Fighter V this week. This is particularly odd, because I hate it.

Yes, I've been lured back by the incoming arrival of my favourite video game character of all time, Poison, who will be joining the SFV roster this very weekend. I'm crazy excited about this, and am looking forward to diving in for two weeks, before remembering why I have repeatedly stopped playing, turning off, and going back to Mortal Kombat 11. Still, happy to see my lady back again, prep your skull for those stiletto heels, people.

What about all y'all? How has your gaming weekend been and what do you plan on playing this weekend? I know a bunch of you have gone back to school with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, while others are knee-deep in some of the last few months releases. Whether you're playing something old, something new, something borrowed or... erm... something blue, be sure to let us know in the comments how your gaming week has been.

Have a wonderful weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
