Hey good friends and neighbors, welcome to Whatcha Been Playing? I hope that the week has treated you well and that this weekend brings you some happiness. I’m certainly hoping to take a stroll down that metaphorical path myself, as I’ve been having a particularly poor run this month with my mental health. I have several painful issues weighing on me right now, related to work, home life, self-worth, even identity. This particular bout of severe depression has been waiting to spring on me for some time, and it finally found the moment to strike. I cannot lie, friends, I am in a terrible place, compounded by awful world news and pandemic frustrations. Here’s the thing, though: I will get through it. I don’t know how, or when, but I will. And if you’re struggling right now, you will too. Stay strong, and know that I’m pulling for you.
Some of you, (well, a couple of you), might be wondering why my Cris Tales review never actually emerged. The answer is genuine, complex, controversial, and full of holes. All you need to know is that I am clearing the slate and that the review is definitely coming. Does anybody care? I’m not sure, but I apologize for the tardiness regardless. Hopefully, you will enjoy the read when it finally arrives. This is my first “late” review ever. EVER. But when you’ve knocked out 8000 articles across four years, occasionally you’ll slip up on one or two. Incidentally, it’s a beautiful-looking game. Completely and inarguably gorgeous. LiKe mE!!111

It doesn’t matter if it’s a new or an old release, a replay or a premiere, Akuma in Monster Hunter… hell, even if it’s a movie, talk about that instead. All that matters is that you’re here and that you have fun with your fellow Destructoid community members in sharing with us Whatcha Been Playing?.. (or watching…)
