Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

I’ve been RIDING THE TIGER

Something wicked this way comes. It starts with an “E” and it ends with a “3”. Except it doesn’t end, because that is the way of modern gaming media. What was once a half-week of constant excitement, reveals, news drops, and hard work has become a drawn out, months-long gala of constant streams, hours dedicated to individual games, and 160-minute PC showcases.

Still, it’s hard not to feel the vibe as we approach gaming’s biggest week. Who knows what we will see? I guess it comes down to what you want to see. Regardless, the best part of E3 is spending it with y’all, and we hope that this year you’ll join us in the comments once again with your takes on this year’s industry offerings. You’ll make it all worth the effort. You always do.

But enough living in the future, let’s live in the now. And by “live in the now”, I mean “live in the past”… erm… Look, I’m telling you that I’m back in the boxy world of Virtua Fighter, courtesy of Sega’s upcoming re-release Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown. It’s been nice to get my three-button grove back on, at my age it’s about as complicated as my greying cells can manage. I have many thoughts on this re-release, (which I’m not allowed to share right now), so be sure to watch out for a review come Tuesday.

I hope you all have a wicked weekend, whatever you’re getting up to. But before it begins, dive into the comments and share the games that are currently spinning up your hard drives. I’ve been doing this for years now, never missed a Saturday, and you still come out in droves, which means the world to me. So keep the train chuggin’ along, and share with us your current gaming obsessions.

Have a wonderful weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
