Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Gout ‘n’ Clout

Recommended Videos

Oh my god, I’m so glad that you’re here, friends. Welcome to Whatcha Been Playing? You find me at the end of an exhausting week, underpowered from lack of sleep, somewhat burned out on the daily grind, and suffering from a (fairly minor) gout attack. As such, I’m really happy that it’s the weekend, and that I can rest up, enjoy a quality donut, and spend the morning with all of you, my dear friends of Destructoid.

So here’s the thing: There is a helluva month ahead for us here. We have to deal with the reviews, updates, and guide work for some of the year’s biggest releases, with Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Street Fighter 6, Diablo IV, and Final Fantasy XVI all hitting in the next seven, and as we approach Summer Games Fest, Gamescom, and other publisher summer streams. It’s going to be relentless, and we’re all very tired.

So I’ll definitely be taking the next couple of days as an opportunity to remain very, very still.

Out ‘n’ About

As you may or may not know I had the exciting opportunity to visit Capcom H.Q., where I got to check out a basically finished build of Street Fighter 6. While you can find my full report on this play session right here, it suffices to say that the game is looking just peachy. There is something being done here, something of an apology, something of a reclamation, something of a comeback, and provided that the landing sticks — Capcom is putting together something very special.

They also had a statue of Lady Dimitrescu. Not to scale, upsettingly.

Aside from this venture, I have also been reminding myself of the joys of Fight’n Rage. You can expect a full review of the PS5 edition early next week. This weekend is mostly donuts and recharge, however.

Tout Your Route

But that’s more than enough about yer pal, I want to hear all about you. Before you head off into what I hope will be a delightful weekend, please take the time to dive into the comments and tell us all Whatcha Been Playing. As noted before, it’s been something of a quiet release window, but that just gives us more opportunity to finally play catchup on our respective backlogs.

So, if you’re monster-mashing through Redfall or Dead Island 2, revisiting Breath of the Wild ahead of Link’s new adventure, or just chilling with some old 16-bit classics. Tell us all about it. We’ve been hitting over 200 comments week-in and week-out lately. That’s fantastic, so thanks a lot, and have a rad one.

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