Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Out of Office. No, really.

Howdy friends, and welcome to the weekend. I hope that this is a happy, restful, and special one for all of you. It’s definitely going to be a little different for yer boy because — believe it or don’t — I actually have a week off from work at Destructoid. For those keeping score, this is my first full week off since I started here. Straight up. It’s going to be very odd, and I’m going to have to work real hard not checking in, visiting staff chat, and… frankly… doing any work. It already feels weird, frankly. But nothing’s stopping Whatcha Been Playing? and not only do you have today’s entry, but I’ll ensure that I have one up for next weekend too. Please look after the good ship Destructoid while I’m gone. See that header image of Crisbell? I need to make sure that’s me next week.

This week, I’ve been playing some Street Fighter V as usual, but I’ve also put some time into Hero Concepts’ upcoming smack-’em-up, Mayhem Brawler. I’ve also been inundated with work and IRL tasks, but have wound up Dreams Unincorporated’s beautiful RPG Cris Tales. You can expect a write-up on both these latter titles when I return, so please look forward to those. Other than that, I haven’t played a whole lot. It’s been a busy week and I’ve been really exhausted. Frankly, this week off couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m just completely spent, folks. The energy is long gone.

Before I log out for longer than I ever have since starting here, I want all y’all to leap into the comments and share with us the games that have been entertaining you this week and weekend. You know the score, of course, they can be old or new, premieres or replays, five-star-stunners or one-star-regrets. We all just want to hear whatcha been playing, so come and share the fun with me, the team, and your beloved Destructoid community.

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