Despite knowing it's a pipe dream, there is a part of me that really wants Hi-Fi Rush to do for video games what Spider-verse did for animated films. Just please games industry, make more games that are just fun and complete at launch.

 
 
 

Seeing people reply to the news that Redfall will require a constant internet connection to play single player with, "So what? That's every modern game!" has made me lose hope in the youth. They are too stupid.

 
 
 

Dude made the Chao Garden a standalone game.



 
 
 

Beat Wavetale. Fun game. Brief. But fun. Controlled really well and looked very nice. The story was not exactly the most original I've ever heard, but it was told well enough. And there were some clever ideas and just a lot of fun to be had. Recommended.


 
 
 

Started playing a game called Aspire: Ina's Tale. Bit of a cross between Gris and Limbo. Beautiful art. Some of the mechanics are a bit finicky (or I just suck, who can say?). Been enjoying it so far. EDIT: Shoulda mentioned, on sale US eshop for $2 rn.



 
 
 

Oh for fuck's sake they are only soft rebooting the DCEU. Recasting the characters but continuing the already flawed and messy storyline. Fucking New 52 all over again.

 
 
 

Had the startling realization that we never got a proper TMNT RPG video game. That feels wrong. Who do I have to talk to to rectify this injustice?

 
 
 

Holy shit this show looks like a mess. And why does it share a name with the game if it's so different?



 
 
 

Finally got around to watching The Bad Guys and if Sony wanted to revisit that Sly Cooper film I think now would be the time.

 
 
 

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is doing a collab with a fashion company? I mean it tracks but it's also odd.

 
 
 

So allegedly this is what that Velma show is about. So yeah if the trend of "take a thing for kids but make it for adults (adults in this context being shitty teens)" could just fucking die in a fire already.


 
 
 

The worst thing about the Uncharted movie was they had a chance to give us more Eddy Raja and they just didn't.

 
 
 

The Batman x Hotline Miami


 
 
 

Sometimes I miss movies getting tie-in games. There were some gems in that pile of shit.

 
 
 

Apparently this is happening?! And it just flew right under the radar! Holy fuck they are finally making a sequel to the 2013 Evil Dead, what the hell?!



 
 
 

Saw Glass Onion at my friends' house last night. Enjoyed it a lot. Pic related.


 
 
 

I beat Ragnarok. Without saying too much I found it underwhelming. Decent game, had a lot of good moments, but I just don't think it lived up to the hype for me.

 
 
 

If you could only recommend ONE game that you played in 2022, what would it be?

 
 
 

Probably should have mentioned this when it happened but I saw Violent Night last week. Dumb movie. Loved it. Will probably add it to the holiday watch list for years to come. Hope they make more. And I hope each one rips off the corresponding Die Hard.

 
 
 
 

Someone please get this to Rian Johnson's attention ASAP.


 
 
 

Beat Dragon Quest Treasures. Enjoyed it. Not sure I'd recommend tho. It's extremely short with most of the meat being exploring. Very little actually happens, plot-wise. If the gameplay loop doesn't grab you then there's nothing for you here.

 
 
 

I feel like Pokemon Scarlet/Violet have been out long enough that I can ask this (in the comments though still because I know not everyone has gotten through it) and get some decent responses.

 
 
 

The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic crossover has been pretty bad ass so far. My only complaint is Donnie and Mikey becoming the Black and Yellow Ranger. Should have stuck with their normal Purple/Orange motif.


 
 
 

Dragon Quest Treasures continues the trend of me enjoying the spin offs of massive franchises more than the main entries they spun off of. Game's a bit overcomplicated at times, but also a blast. It will surely tide me over until they announce Builders 3.

 
 


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, Wes's Unofficial Father, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer and aspiring writer. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
