Loved Mega Man as a kid. Still love it now.
Started the PS4 Mega Man X collection.... plowed through Mega Man X and nabbed every trophy.
Started Mega Man X 2, plowed through it right up until the Sho-Ryu-Ken gauntlet. Haven't picked up the game in weeks. Realized that I don't love Mega Man that much anymore.

Anybody into Monster Hunter? I swung by GameStop to look at their selection of Wii U games and they had the Wii U Monster Hunter game for $5 so I picked it up. Never got around to playing them yet but I've heard good things about the series.

I also picked up the remastered version of the Ghostbusters game for XBox One.

I can't stop playing Persona 5 Royal. I think I have a problem. Hopefully between this, Animal Crossing, Resident Evil 3, and Final Fantasy next week, I can make time fly and not notice my self-isolation too much.

I finished Resident evil 3 remake 3 days ago. I liked it more than 2 because it has much more action. And i continue Borderlands 3 since then.

I never in my life got Dragon Warrior to work on my NES until I recently got a top-loader, so I finally got to play and beat that this week after waiting 30 years. Nice to finally check that one off the list.

I got a PS4 for free last week.. kind of. My work has a points program that you can award others once a month for doing well. To boost morale during the pandemic, they gave managers enough to give to a whole team at once. Only my team is just the manager, me, and one other guy, so he just gave the two of us all of the points split down the middle and that put me over enough to trade in the points for a PS4 Pro. I hadn't spent any since the points program started and the amount I got was almost the amount I had already saved for years, so if it weren't for that boost I wouldn't have enough until like 2024.

So I think of it not really as "free", but I just cashed in EXP instead of Gold.

I've played it essentially daily since I got it a week ago Tuesday, but today I've got such a pounding headache I might not even turn it on.

The Last of Us 2 leaks are everywhere, be careful. I may have had something spoiled for me, but I don't know.

In case anyone dives in headfirst, I'd love to get a "yes" or "no" on whether or not we get a significant chance to play as Joel.

Doesn't look like it.

But also, the game sounds all kinds of terrible. My excitement for it has completely plummeted. Was going to get it day one but I can wait for a hefty discount.

I just completed Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D and unlocked master quest for the first time ever. I began playing master quest and just about to finish the Deku Tree.

I never played the N64 version of any of the game.

Thanks for sharing that info. If anyone hears otherwise, can you let me know without spoiling anything else?
I'll play it either way, but I really grew attached to Joel as a character.

So, it sounds like you're a fan of the first game but the leaks have turned you off? Is it political?

Along with playing lots of New Horizons, I tried out Yooka-Laylee after getting it on sale last year. I played around 10 hours and finally gave up during the casino world. It has charm for sure, but the controls and camera feel like they haven't been updated since 90s.

I really enjoyed the first game. Thought it was overrated but I really liked the story and characters. And yes, the story is very political. Even some of the developers weren't comfortable with the game's message and felt like they had to bite their tongues. It's just nothing at all what you'd think it is or should be.

Watching the Last of Us 2 situation from afar (and not giving a sh*t about Spoilers), I kinda get what the developers were going for but they had to have known it wasn't going to sit well with a ton of people who enjoyed the first game. Like I totally get what they're trying to reinforce with the story choices and it's definitely a bold choice, but it also comes off, maybe inadvertently, as a bit of a middle finger to people who liked the first game and the characters.

All I'm seeing from people who've spoiled the game for themselves is, "Thanks for saving me $60," and nothing at all that's positive, so that doesn't bode well.

Given the current state of the world, and the fact that everyone's basically a poor person for the next couple'a years, I kinda think a lot of companies are going to be taking far fewer risks with the content they create. People are going to have little to no expendable income, and they're simply ONLY going to patronize companies that give them exactly what they want. Nobody's going to be gambling with their entertainment dollars when everyone's barely scraping by. That'll be bad for the entertainment industry as a whole, since creators themselves will be forced to take far fewer risks with the content they create (Lot of people feeling bait-and-switched by the FF7 "remake" as well right now), but on the flip side it might mean that creators will be forced to not toy with their audiences' expectations so much. We've seen with things like the newer Star Wars movies and the FF7 "remake" that you can only toy with people so much before they tell you to go f*ck yourself.

I also think that spoilers for games and movies are going to be more prevalent and popular than ever, simply because people aren't going to want to gamble with their dollars, they'll want to know exactly what they're getting before they lay down their money.

We do indeed live in interesting times. And I could be wrong altogether but that's what I see happening.
