    Anyone got gaming goals with the increased time at home now?
    I'm finally going to finish Yakuza 0, and I have Kiwami 1 and 2 waiting.

    I started playing fallout 76 again. I figured since I already paid for it I might as well give it another shot. It has been ok but I might need to rebuild my character for something different. Stealth sniper feels very weak, and I see similar level melee players kicking major ass.

    My GF found all 900 Koroks in Breath of the Wild over the last two weeks...

    Finally set up Gamestream through my Nvidia Shield so I can play my PC games on my big screen. So far only got AC Odyssey working with no issues and it works beautifully. My GF is having a blast playing the Discover mode. She is an architect and has always longed for some sort of way to see ancient structures as they were. Who knew a video game DLC would give it to her?

    With this extra time, I've gotten back into Destiny 2 and playing through the newest season. It's a pretty fun game, but man can you fall deep into the grind of it.

    Well I blew through Axiom Verge this weekend. Good metroid clone game if a little too easy by metroidvania standards. I've been putting this off for years but now is the time to finally pick up X:rebirth; I hear that after the patches and DLC it actually became a fairly decent game.

    Yeah I played it before. Nice Metroid Clone but after I beat it, I didn't care for it.

    Meanwhile my PS4 is in storage because I haven't gotten the urge to play anything on it as of late. I'm mostly an old arcade gamer. Some of my side scrolling shooting games ("Shmups") are getting reissued on the PS4, so I might take it out of storage.

    Two charging grips arrived today. They are great. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Glad it worked out! It's funny, both my kids hate using the joycons separated and the pro controller but they love the grips.

    Been playing Doom Eternal. The intense fights of the last Doom gloriously return with the addition of light platforming and puzzle solving, additional RPG elements, and a more engrossing story. The simple platforming and puzzle solving breaks the rhythm a little in the early game until you learn them enough, at which point they become a pleasant part of this game's rhythm. The RPG elements offer additional depth for those who enjoy fiddling but aren't really that important on normal difficulty. I've been reading the "Codex" which reveals the game's backstory; its a mark of joyous engrossment when I find myself doing this in a game. And of course the soundtrack is as badass as the main character, just like the last game. Would definitely recommend this game to those who enjoyed the last one or anyone with nostalgia for the fast-paced gameplay of past FPS games like Quake and Unreal (Tournament).

    Looking forward to picking up the FFVII remake at Best Buy tomorrow. The nostalgia will be strong with this one and the reviews look great—a recipe for marvelous enjoyment! :)

    If anyone's looking for cheap, hilarious multiplayer fun: Invisigun Reloaded is $0.99 on Switch.
    It's a top-down shooter where everyone's invisible--so even you can't see your own character.

    Animal crossing is pretty damn relaxing these days but I finally fired up Doom Eternal and it's a phenomenal counterpoint. I suspect between these two I won't play anything else for months.

    Yeah, Doom Eternal is awesome. I could see myself playing this game till the end of the year. My work is pretty hectic these days but I will always find a small chunk of time every day with it. Still trying to finish an Ultra Nightmare playthrough!

    Mick Gordon is a god, by the way. Doom Eternal would be half as enjoyable without its excellent, blood-pumping soundtrack.

    Got my PS4 Slim out of storage after moving. Hooking it up to the computer monitor since we do not have a TV in the apartment. I guess back to DJ Max Respect it is, the Bernie rip-off that became something more.....

    And just found out that DJ Max Respect is also on the PC via Steam. Too bad my Laptop is not good enough to run it. Then again, I have it on the PS4, lol.

    Just finished "Control" on PC. Aside from a game-breaking bug near the end (I had to restart a chapter and lose a bunch of side-quest progress), this has been an excellent ride. Jedi powers - lightsaber + twilight zone

    Who was thinking about getting the PC Engine/Turbografx-16 Mini on here?

    Disclaimer of my 16-bit era bias: Megadrive/Genesis > PC Engine/Turbografx-16 > Super Famicom/Super Nintendo

    I had my thrill with Shadow of the Beast already.
