Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Lidia’s making you War-sore

This week has been all about The Tired. Tiredness in body, brain, and soul. It doesn’t seem to matter whether I sleep 12 hours or two hours, everything has just felt slow and heavy. Like I’m a big ol’ sack of spuds. I think a lot of us might be feeling this way at the moment, as pandemic fatigue sets in and we realize how long we’ve gone without socializing. But this too, will pass, and we’ll all be back outside arguing about Star Wars or making ice sculptures or whatever you kids do these days. So stay rested and stay strong. You’ve got this.

Like any brain-drained maniac, I decided the best option would not be to spend my evenings resting or playing something restful and soothing, but to double down on the ultra stressful world of fighting games. Inspired by the arrival of the awesome Lidia Sobieska, I hopped back into Tekken 7 to bust a few nose bridges. From there I took a side-step into Street Fighter V, to rock a few rounds in Juri’s new clobber. I ended the week returning to Mortal Kombat 11, but the toxicity of the online community remains too infuriating. I know we’re there to fight but, frankly, you don’t have to be an asshole about it.

But that’s enough from me, let’s pass the mic to you. Before you get settled into what I hope will be a happy, restful, and enjoyable weekend, jump into the comments below and fill us in on the video games that have been keeping you awake and alert during these strangely blurring times. It doesn’t matter what you’re playing, it’s all welcome, so be sure to share your current gaming trends with us.

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