Summer Loving

Hey friends, lovers, and well-wishers, (you are all of them), and welcome to Whatcha Been Playing? It’s been a gnarly hectic week for The Industry’s Chris Moyse, as I have had a lot on my plate over the course of the past two weeks. This is set to continue as we head into June (halfway through the year?!) and take on the myriad titles that are heading our way including Street Fighter 6, Diablo IV, and Final Fantasy XVI, not to mention that Summer Game Fest and Gamescom are also just around the corner.

What’s that? A new Mortal Kombat launching this fall? And AEW in three weeks? Sure, why not?

But too many interesting, exciting, or simply curious titles on the horizon is a nice problem to have, even if it means a metric ton of work for everyone on the good ship. It’s better than thumb twiddlin’, and so I’m looking forward to some sun and some fun. Plus, the shorts are on, so everyone gets to see my (frankly hot af) gams. Hope this summer is a great one for all of us, we definitely could use the break.

Born to Hand Jive

Most of my gaming this week has revolved around three titles, namely Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Diablo IV, and, of course, Street Fighter 6, of which I’ve had to do much grinding ahead of the game’s review and eventual launch as soon as *checks watch*, JFC, it’s next week. Anyway, please look forward to the latter. I have a lot of thoughts, and they’re currently simmering and percolating in this old, tired, grey noodle.

I also put down some new flicks. I watched The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which I found hollow, flat, and repetitive, but ultimately harmless, with some nice creativity (that’s “some”). Very empty calories though. I then watched Evil Dead Rise, which, honestly, disappointed me. I did like the characters though, and Alyssa Sutherland’s lead Deadite is fantastic. Finally, I watched Scream VI, which I thought was great, with a fun cast, solid drama, brutal, un-meme-y violence, and smart use of the grander stage of NYC.

If not my favorite of the entire Scream franchise, which it genuinely may be, then it’s a close second to the original. I’d say don’t @ me, but you can’t @ my truth. It doesn’t work that way.

You’re the One that I Want

And with that, it’s time to p-p-pass the mic over to you, beloved citizens of Destructoid. So whatever you have been playing, watching, or simply “doing”, please take a brief moment to dive into the comments and tell us all about it. You have a lot of influence over our community, more than you’d imagine. And going through these comments every week I see people reference games that others will then pick up on and enter in next week’s article. That’s what makes us a community. The best community. So be sure to take a few minutes to have your say on all things gaming. Be a trendsetter, yo.

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