    Played for about 45 minutes. Really dig it so far.

    That said, I still need to finish Norman Reedus's Undead UPS Simulator, and I don't know why...

    Amazing. :rofl:
    Have no plans of playing Death Stranding but this description fits perfectly with everything I've heard about the game, including people feeling the need to keep playing it and not even knowing why.

    I think Kojima is an evil genius.

    I've never enjoyed a game so much, yet have such a difficult time recommending. This is a game that sorely needs a demo.

    Loads of people seem to be saying they genuinely don't know why they're playing it :lol:

    Honestly, you just get caught in a cycle and just want to keep spinning around it. Again, still don't know why...

    It gives a really weird sense of duty to do a bunch of stuff you don't want to do and for the most part gets the reward and sense of accomplishment (TM) right. I really don't want to go near any BTs, but at the same time I've got packages to get to the other side.

    Finally made it to the end of Link's Awakening. I might be ridiculously late on that one, buuuuut I did it.
    I'm running out of Zelda content to consume, so I'll have to get a Switch. It's the only way. It's out of my control.

    Control and Judgement were both 30 bucks at Best buy, as was Catherine. The others were 15 - 20 bucks each.

    Ah. I forget about discs being for sale apart from steelbooks.

    Catherine's fancy version with all the DLC is on the PSN black friday sale. I dunno if I want to play that game again. I remember enjoying it, but I also remember being stressed out in a not-fun way by the puzzles by the end. I liked the plot/dating sim aspects of the game more than the clunky puzzle sections, even though they're really the core of the gameplay. If they very heavily polished the controls maybe!

    I discovered the other day that there's a promo for gamepass to give you access to a bunch of stuff for three months for $1. There's also now a steam sale starting......
    Time to get more games that I may or may not play. :lol:

    Lately I've been visiting old titles that I never got the chance to play. Right now I'm playing Dragon Quest VIII, and it is absolutely fantastic! Not gonna lie though, I've been getting an itch to just play regular old gameboy Pokemon Red...maybe that will follow DQ.

    Started up Children of Morta and it's really neat. The art style is kind of like Hyperlight Drifter where it's retro, but not really. My favorite part is the killer soundtrack and how the it's essentially a dungeon crawler/roguelike with an actual story/progression. Everytime you die you lose the powerups you get, but you get to keep your experience and gold, so there's a steady progression in terms of power.

    Played TF2 for the first time in years. Holy shit, this game has gone down hill. Hackers in 50% of the lobbies or people afk trading in non trade servers. On top of that OG Source engine feels like crap nowadays.

    Update on chinpokomon Shield. I’m playing along with my wife and man these new Pokémon are adorable. They did a really good job making all the “new” early pokemon look like tweaked real animals which I always liked about the early games. I’m pretty sure this turtle thing I caught is buck-toothed and that’s awesome.

    Started a little bit of We Happy Few. No idea when I'll have time to get back to it, but it seems promising.

    Bought Battlefield 4 on sale for the PC. I've played it on ps3+4 already, but for 5 bucks i couldn't pass it up. A lot of fun and plenty of populated servers. Started a new Bloodborne playthrough a few days ago too for the single player fix.
