    I'm going to wait with the console buy this generation It is my hope that external pressure will force Sony to finally give up on its exclusivity approach so I'll at least get to play their games on PC.

    We're already seeing the first signs with Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding coming to Steam.

    Otherwise I'm probably going to get a PS5 eventually.

    Kinda funny how going to the actual store was a route many people didn't consider and after the online orders were sold out there were pockets of Gamestops still with pre-orders available in store.

    Which PS5 did you get?

    The disc version. I wanted the digital, but those were gone instantly. With that mess on Thursday I couldn't really be picky.

    FInished my second (very enjoyable) playthrough of Wasteland 3.

    Is there anything else out there I should try in terms of recent and semi-recent games?

    Did you play "Control"? Was my personal game of the year 2019.

    This was our latest 'chaos run' in ESO where we don't have a strategy, we just 'wing it'...



    This was 'The Twins' bit of 'Maw Of Lorkaj'. It's only on normal, not vet, but then, there was only 11 of us and, like I say, we didn't use the mechanics at all. We just ran around and bashed stuff :)

    Also, there's a new chapter available free...

    Ended up getting the Resident Evil 3 remake. I never even played the original!

    It's okay so far. I have to say as someone who doesn't like the controls usually (I play on PC), this one is alright.

    Whoa, that was over quickly. I think around six hours of gameplay? I forgot how short these games were!

    There's one game you could play that's more open ended, y'know... ;)

    NVM :(

    Do you mean WoW? Sorry, I'm too old to devote hundreds of hours just to get up to a respectable level! I haven't played any other MMORPG either, if it's any consolation.

    I've never played WoW or any other MMORPG but you don't need to spend a great deal of time to have fun in this as you can do many of the quests even at the lowest levels. A big thing is simply joining together with other random people in the 'zone', (the local area IOW), by putting out a message in chat.

    TBH that's actually something that's fun at ANY level.

    Got AC Valhalla with my Series X.

    Having a ton of fun with it so far. Reminds me a bit more of Origins and seems slightly less bloated that Odyssey

    I picked it up too but haven't really dived in to it yet. How is the PS5 treating ya? Is the controller's haptic feed back as impressive as people are saying?

    I've only played Astro's Playroom and Miles Morales so far. It was really neat in Astro's though that make sense since it's basically a tech demo. I didn't notice it much in Miles Morales.

    I'm still semi skeptical on how many developers are going to use it, but it is cool
