Magic Cat’s within the Cradle
Good morning, good weekend, and welcome to Whatcha Been Taking part in? It has been a month of per week, and actually a month of the 12 months, and, frankly, I’m fairly able to hit the massive reset button and provides 2023 one other go. I type of stumbled out of the beginning blocks, as did a lot of the broader world, and right here’s to hoping the rest of the 12 months goes a bit extra easily. I hope that the 12 months has began nicely for all of you, regardless.
And, as we enter the ultimate weekend of January, I’m very blissful to see you present out for our weekly get-together. It may not be a reside stream, we’d not all be in a chat window smashing dat lyke button, however we’re right here in our personal time, at our personal tempo, and surrounded by our fellow vidya recreation followers. Such is the fantastic thing about being on board the great ship Destructoid, ya dig? It’s nice to see all y’all!
It was a tough outdated week for yer pal Moyse. Not solely was I merely busy as all hell, however I spent final weekend cramming Forspoken for a Monday morning embargo. And whereas I’m very pleased with my assessment, the broader on-line narrative — from gamers and media — did bitter me a bit. It wasn’t that I believed the general public consensus disagreed with my write-up, extra that this pre-determined narrative of “I’ll hate this recreation when it launches, it doesn’t matter what”, had been determined earlier than launch day.
I now know the facility of an 18-second Twitter clip versus a complete week spent enjoying and constructively reviewing a recreation to the perfect of an individual’s skills. Forspoken is flawed. Little question about it. However social media went overboard. It’s what it’s.
Anyway, between hopping round Athia to scrub up some trophies and the like, I’ve additionally stepped into the wild world of 110 Industries Wished: Lifeless — A title I’ve had my eye on for fairly a while now and am grateful to lastly get a while with. Clearly, I can’t speak about it proper now, however you may anticipate a assessment for this batshit hack ‘n’ slasher come February.
Carry on Freerunnin’
Anyway, if anyone must bail, I have to bail. I’mma fixing to do this proper now. However earlier than I am going, it might be remiss of me to not kindly ask all y’all to leap into the feedback and allow us to all know Whatcha Been Taking part in? It’s implausible to see how “conversational” the remark part has grow to be for this weekly soiree, and I at all times ensure to run the gauntlet of your ideas come Sunday.
You aren’t talking into the void, everyone seems to be trying out what you must say. As a result of we’re household like that, and we’re eager about you. So, whether or not you’re enjoying a brand-new title or a traditional from yesteryear, tell us. It may be a sentence, it may be a paragraph — All that issues is that you just’re part of the get-together x
Have a beautiful weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
