Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Streets of Rage

Take me down to Oak Wood City…

Hello folks, how are you all holding up? I think one of the strangest and more unspoken elements of our present lockdown situation is the way the weeks and months are just melting away. This time next week it’ll be May, and it barely feels like April has begun. Hell, it barely feels like seven days since we all last chatted here.

I guess the key – for those of you who aren’t still working – is to try and make it so even if the days are somewhat uneventful, we’ve all still got stories to tell, even if we’re just recanting games, movies, books, or great conversations. This is the media age, after all, and it’s not like we can run out of things to do. Also, perhaps pick up the phone, because I guarantee there’s someone who wants to hear from you right now.

This past couple o’ weeks I’ve been neck deep in two brand new games, prepping both for incoming reviews on this here site. First up is Sega’s “soft-reboot” of dramatic RPG series Sakura Wars, while the second is Dotemu’s stylish brawler Streets of Rage 4. When not writing on site, (or lying in bed with heart palpitations), I’ve been hitting these games, and I’m looking forward to telling you all about both very soon.

But before that, you should tell us all what you’ve been playing. There’s so many tremendous games out on the market right now, from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, to Final Fantasy VII Remake, Resident Evil 3, and Doom Eternal. Not to mention the slew of great releases probably sitting in your backlog. So whatever you’re hitting right now, drop us a note below and share your joy with us.

Have a safe and restful weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.

Please keep spoilers for recent games out of the comments, thanks!
