Lemme know if you notice it.


 
 

I think Thanksgiving is so forgettable because its the one major holiday in the US with traditions not stolen from Pagans. Those pagans really know how to celebrate. Puritanical pilgrims did not. Pic unrelated.


 
 

There's a hug chunk of indie games that are just "If (insert AAA company here) won't make it, I WILL!" Anyway, here's another Paper Mario inspired game to add to the pile. This one looks pretty neat tbf.

 
 

5 minutes ago I did not know this game existed but now I have to admit my interest is piqued.


 
 

This really flew under the radar today. Looks like an okay platformer game. I guess it'll really depend on the price for me. I could see myself putting down $30 for this, maybe $40. I do have a weakness for these sorts of games.

 
 

If you were ever going to buy Cards Against Humanity expansion packs and you live in one of these states, now would be a good time.


 
 

It's so weird to see Forspoken's dumb dialogue hurt it's reputation when Strangers in Paradise's dialogue was arguably equally as bad and dumb and that seemed to sell people on it. Personally, I find it so dumb it's entertaining for both games.

 
 

Christian Bale is Shadow the Hedgehog. I hope he uses his Batman voice.

 
 

I wonder if the WB/Discovery debacle is going to affect their upcoming games at all?

 
 

Yeah, sure, "citrus" reamer.


 
 
 

There should be a Yakuza-esque Street Fighter spin off. Maybe starring Chun Li/Juri as the Kiryu/Majima equivalents. Also a C. Viper game in the vein of MGR. Really I just want Capcom to use the cast of Street Fighter in games I wouldn't suck at.

 
 

Juri Han is proof that I have terrible taste in women and even worse survival instincts.

 
 

Been meaning to share this, but I stumbled upon a Monster Hunter animation channel that occasionally uploads these neat little videos showing off animation stuff in MH games that probably go unnoticed. Idk, I just think it's neat.

 
 

So there's an official Dead By Daylight dating sim.

 
 

Amongst all the shit news lately a small bit of (potentially) good news. New TMNT animated movie coming next year. Doesn't seem tied to any pre-existing TMNT series. Being helmed by the Mitchells vs Machines director and Seth Rogen.


 
 

I submit we change the rule that "its" is possessive and change it to "it's" as it should be while also replacing "it's" as it currently exists (a contraction of "it" and "is) with the archaic, but more fun to say "'tis". I will be taking no questions.

 
 

Also this is happening. The thing that interests me is that Capcom usually sees this kinda stuff as advertising and therefore generally only licenses out relevant characters that have something in the works for, so Rebecca piques my curiosity.

 
 

Apparently HBO Max is cancelling and removing shows/movies for tax write offs (Batgirl among those) and are expected to lay off 70% of their writing staff. I've also heard that once removed those projects can not be distributed in any monetized way.

 
 

I am so annoyed that Koraidon turns into a motorcycle but then still uses its stupid legs to run around. If its going to just run around, why does it need to grow wheels?! Other than that game looks like fun. Still getting Scarlet cuz cavelady professor.

 
 

I don't really understand why I like this guy's videos other than he just seems like he'd be fun to hang with.

 
 

So this is seems to have slipped real far under the radar, but next month (August 26) both Nexomon games will be released in a neat $40 bundle. I've played both and honestly the second game is worth it alone. I may double dip just to have 1 physically.

 
 

The Nier Automata church apparently has Drakengard assets in it. So it's looking very likely that it's either an incredibly talented modder or some very weird viral marketing teaser for something.

 
 

The MCU's Namor and his kingdom being reimagined as Mesoamerican is such a good idea. I know Atlantis was used because...it's Atlantis, but making now Namor and his people are more visually unique and it compliments Namor's anti-surface dweller motivation

 
 

Someone found a previously unknown secret room in Nier Automata. Link in comments. Possible spoilers.

 
 

I simultaneously forgot this game was a thing and thought it had already released.

 
 

Gameplay footage of TLOU Part 1 has leaked and it looks like it plays pretty much exactly the same as the original. So the remake really was entirely just to tweak graphics and not improve the experience at all. Makes even less sense than before.

 
 

Also for my fellow D20 fans on here.

 
 

This feels relevant to many of you folks' interests.

 
 

After many years of hearing about it but never having the opportunity to play it I finally got to play and beat Portal. It's a fun time. Short. But fun.

 
 

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.
