Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Don’t give ‘im the stick

It has been a week, both in my own localised life bubble and in the greater picture of this here planet. I miss the days when I could open these articles with a simple “Hey yo” and a brief reminder to love yourselves and each other, but the reality is that troubled times continue. While I’m not interested in pretending we aren’t all having a tough run right now, it’s still important to remember that we all have our saving graces, be they friends, family, pets, movies, exercise or, of course, video games. Keep it up, folks, you’ve got this.

This week has seen me engaged in military warfare on two very different fronts. Firstly, I spent some hours runnin’ and gunnin’ through 1980s Miami in Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta. Then, far and away from that “real-world” action, I’ve been taking on the might of COBRA in Game Mill’s G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout. The only real conclusion I’ve drawn is that global warfare is far less traumatic when fought by glasses-wearing dominatrixes (domanatrices?) and evil dudes with solid silver heads. Still, at least I know that now, and knowing is half the battle.

That’s more than enough about me. I’m crawling back under the duvet to stick my head in the proverbial sand. Why don’t you jump into the comments below and tell us what you’ve been enjoying this week? It doesn’t even have to be gaming related. Perhaps you’ve read a cool book, or enjoyed a movie, so tell us about that instead. What’s important is that you interact. We have a wonderful community here and you’re very welcome to be part of it.

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