Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

On the Mend

Recommended Videos

Good morning, good day, good weekend, and welcome to Whatcha Been Playing? I hope that this has been a fine week for you and that your locale is starting to see at least something in the way of finer weather as we push into spring. You find me still attempting to shift the backend of some nasty sickness — One that regular readers will know has been bothering me for several weeks. I think I’m getting better, but some dogged symptoms still have the better of me. Here’s hoping that I can mop it up this weekend.

Aside from that, little else to report, I hope that you all enjoyed this week’s Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailer. That is not a game for me, but I’m very happy to see all y’all happy. We actually look to be heading into something of a very special summer, with Zelda, Street Fighter 6, Final Fantasy XVI, Diablo IV, and all manner of rad indie releases all on deck and waiting to keep us out of the sunshine. It’s shaping up to be a fun season, and I don’t think anybody wouldn’t want that, ya dig?

Round the Bend

This week sees me continue to mash my way through the rotted carcasses of sun-bleached bays as I pick my way through the long-time-coming sequel Dead Island 2. I’m afraid I cannot share my thoughts on the game right now, but be sure to tune in for my full review early in the coming week. Aside from that, I have spent some time buried in a backlog of movies, old and new, in my continued efforts to get my “Films Watched” counter showing some of those old-school numbers — back before work, sleep, and sickness crushed my spirits. I’m pushing 70 films for 2023 thus far, which isn’t too shabby.

The End’s End

Before all of you get on with what I’m hoping will be a lovely Saturday, be sure to take a couple of minutes to mosey on down into the comments below and tell us all Whatcha Been Playing? We managed to squeeze over 200 comments out of the Destructoid community last week, many of which were long and earnest, and all of which were fully appreciated. People read your words. Not just me, but the whole community, so spill your thoughts on your recent gaming experiences, because the people here want to hear all about it. Whatever is floating/sinking your boat right now, come tell us all about it. I’m super happy that you’re a part of this.

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