It’s the weekend once again, and I’d be lying if I said the days and weeks hadn’t long blurred together to make one long day. Time seems simultaneously too fast and too slow, and I’m definitely struggling with the separation of day-to-day activities and events. Still, I have friends, I have games, I have movies, and I have you. Until we can get matters back to a state of normalcy, that will be enough for many of us. I hope this weekend finds you and yours well, and I hope you’re keeping your mind exercised and occupied as we push through this particularly tricky period.
A big part of my week has revolved around just grabbing short bursts of gaming wherever I’m able, which hasn’t been too often, to be frank. I’ve mostly resorted to hitting Capcom Arcade Stadium for small, cathartic breaks playing familiar favorites. While many of the games featured on that compendium are titles I’ve played to death, I’m still finding some new loves, such as Cave’s excellent 2001 shmup Progear, which has a gorgeous aesthetic and challenging, satisfying gameplay. That’s the great thing about video games, there’s always new gems to discover, whatever your generation.
But this morning it’s your time to talk gems. I appreciate you taking time out of your weekend to visit Destructoid, and I’m looking forward to reading about all the titles old and new that are occupying your free time, whether you have hours or even just minutes to play with. Jump into the comments below and let us know what you’ve been hitting this week. Hope it was a rad one.
Have a safe and pleasant weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
