So after years developing slipspace engine for this whole new platform of delivering Halo content going forward, 343 decides to... switch to Unreal Engine now. lol


#13 Game beaten in 2023 is: Wild 9. Demon's Souls is going to take months to beat so I'll be playing other games as well, shorter ones. Wild 9 is an example. For years I was looking for this and it was worth it. What Earthworm Jim 3 should have been. 4/5.


They finally decided to put a ring on it! Today is my first day as a full-time staff writer at Destructoid. You'll be seeing a lot more of me on the FP.


Wait, so you CAN'T take me to Lordran? This is some bullshit, I got my axe/crossbow build ready and everything. What a waste.


Not a multilayer or battle royale guy but this is a bummer to hear. The game looked like a more playful and fun take on a battle royale game and I was curious to check it out in a few months.


There's 10 hours left to get the Wadjet Eye Humble Bundle which includes their entire catalog for only $10!!! These are some of the very best point and click adventures out there. Don't miss out!


It's absolutely amazing how despite Xbox getting a major win with Hi-Fi Rush, they have managed to absolutely chip away and potentially destroy that goodwill immediately.


Star ocean 6's crafting opened up, and whole I think 4's was more interesting from what I remember, brute forcing your way into getting a weapon with triple the attack of what you last had is fun. Also 8 hours into hi fi and it's up there for goty still.


I need BioWare to make a Dragon Age Legendary Edition before Dreadwolf arrives. I wanna play DA2 again preferrably with some updated combat.


I think my bathroom is haunted. I was getting ready and I saw this old over-the-hill guy in the mirror staring at me.


Thanks, everyone! My neck crick is getting better. Turning/bending down still hurts quite a bit. Gonna try to go to work today and look into getting a firmer pillow. Wish I knew why I'm always feeling pain/sickness. Is it just "skinny good, fat bad"?


Jason Mamoa will reprise Jason Mamoa in future DCU movies.


Have a great day!


Oh yeah it's fucking up there for me. Headphones recommended.


Gave The Legend of Tianding a shot. It's a Taiwanese Metroidvania with a comic book aesthetic and leans in the direction of Guacamelee. Feels good so far. Been out on Switch and PC a while, but hit PS5 and XSX the other week. Felt like a good Deck game.


Goddamnit Disney, first Owl House and now Benedict Society? Canceling the best content on there. Oh and also this season and the last for SNAP are really killing my enjoyment, Surfer and Zabu are hot p2w in decks. At least Leader is nerfed.


DLSS 3 for Cyberpunk is out! Gave me about a 50 fps bump with all settings maxed, no noticeable input lag or video issues. Hell yeah! Downside, word has it if you had mods, you may have crashing issues


Had three teeth pulled. Was an emergency situation, considering the pain. Luckily, my dentistry fit me in the next day. The antiseptic I got should last a couple days, thankfully. Got nitrous gas, too. Man, wish I had some of that at home!


Damn disqus, your own website is getting increasingly worse with ads. What is this!?


Man, inflation is causing game prices to skyrocket. Sonic is being hit the worst. Prices through the roof! Don't believe me? Fact check me. Google "sonic inflation" and you'll see what I mean.


Have you heard of the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV? With an expanded free trial which you can play through the entirety of A Realm Reborn and the award winning Heavensward expansion up to level 60 for free with no restrictions on playtime
