Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Welllllcome to Turri-caaan

It’s Saturday morning, all y’all! And you know what that means. That’s right, it’s time for us to gather here once again to put the planet to rights and chat about the video games that have (hopefully) kept us all happy and safe and sane in these continuing difficult times. Video games shouldn’t always be used purely as an escape from the troubles of the world at large, but the distraction sure is a blessing, giving us a chance to step away from our individual and collective dramas and take an outta sight trip into endless worlds of awesomeness.

This week, your boy Chris Moyse went back through time and space – in a fashion – as I revisited classic ’90s platformer/shooter series Turrican, courtesy of ININ Games’ upcoming retro release Turrican Flashback, which compiles several titles from the legendary series for the pleasure of fans old and new. I’m afraid I can’t offer you a word on how the package holds up just yet – them’s the rules – but be sure to keep an eye out for my full review at the start of the coming week.

And that’ll be all from me for this week. All that remains is for all of you, our dear community, to jump into the comments and let us know what fun times you’ve been having this week/weekend. Despite having written this feature every Saturday – bar none – for two years, it still remains one of the most popular and most commented articles of each and every week. Thank you for that. I never, ever take any of you for granted.

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