Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?


Hello folks, I don’t want to go on another spiel this week in regards to our current global situation. I’m just grateful that you’re all here for our weekly update on the delightful releases keeping us indoors and safe. I hope that you and yours are doing well, and that you’re finding your own slice of serenity during this particularly difficult period. Pro-Tip: Respect your healthcare workers – don’t get together with your entire community to Do The fucking Conga.

I’ve been relying on a steady intake of films and video games to keep me relatively sane. (That’s bullshit, I’ve been a complete dumpster fire this week.) I spent a little time checking out Rainbow Six Siege‘s wacky new event, The Grand Larceny, and I’ve also worked hard to improve in Mortal Kombat 11, as I continue to struggle by on a 55/45 ratio. MK 11‘s path to enlightenment is a hard one, the equivalent of trying to learn a sport while everyone on both teams laughs and calls you a piece of shit. Kombat League is a wretched place to find your entertainment, and should be avoided entirely by those starting out with MK 11. Better advice is to find other players on a one-to-one basis, and grow alongside them. You’ll find it far more productive and satisfying.

That’s enough whinnying from me. What have all of you been doing this week? Despite the myriad of delays within the industry, 2020 has still seen many excellent releases. So whether you’re waist-deep in Final Fantasy VII Remake, Streets of Rage 4, Gears Tactics, Resident Evil 3, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or something else entirely, fill us in on what is currently floating your boat, friends.

Have a safe and pleasant weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.

Please keep major spoilers for recent games out of the comments, thanks!
