Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Raising a toast to our beloved community

Helllo friends, and welcome to the weekend. I hope that the past seven days have been good to you and yours, and most importantly that you are staying safe and well. We are undoubtedly in a year for the history books. Please take care of yourself, those around you, and lend support if you are able to those who are handling this intense year particularly poorly. Whatever we have, we have each other.

I’ve not played a whole lot this week other than Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, the DLC expansion to NetherRealm’s head-splitting MK 11. Regarding the story epilogue… Well… I could write a book on my thoughts. The bullet-point version is that while I don’t care for certain plot beats, characterizations, tone, and another reliance on that conclusion, Aftermath’s story does have fantastic animation, wicked fight choreography, and amazing vocal performances from both Mara Junot as my eternal empress Sindel, and from Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who is absolutely in his element as Shang Tsung. Of the new characters, I’m currently digging Sheeva the most, though all three fighters are looking strong right off the bat. It has begun… again.

That’s what yer boy has been up to. But we aren’t here to talk about me, we’re here to talk about you… yes, you. So drop us a quick note below and tell us what has been keeping you entertained this past week or incoming weekend. Whether its new games, old games, replays, backloggery, or even just making your own games, come and share the joy with us. We love hearing about it.

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