On another note, any recommendation on the Yakuza/Judgment games would be appreciated.

These are PS games? Never heard of them, but I barely play these days

Didn't realize these are Playstation exclusives.
Apparently they are quite good but there are so many of them.

Got Deus Ex Mankind a week or so ago for like 2 dollars. Just got both DLC missions for 3 bucks. Hope it's good or I'm out like half a pack of smokes.

I've been playing Conan Exiles, a survival game which looks like a PS2 era game and has terrible inventory management, but is strangely addictive.
Also Control, which is the exact opposite.

I always hated the modern combat military shooters but made an exception and spent 6 bucks on Spec Ops The Line for Xbox.

Amazing story that pulls no punches (based on Heart of Darkness by Conrad), even though the mechanics are dated and janky since it's a last gen title.

Still though, can't recommend it enough.


Other than that, been grinding out my end game character in ESO.

I thought it would be fun to play the 20 year old Deus Ex with the Revision mod. It's a great mod that overhauls everything. I got the game on steam and you can download the mod there as well. The game has aged very well. I bought the game to absolve my guilt of pirating it in high school.

The story is pretty interesting. Basically a mysterious global pandemic has broken out across the world. It's discovered that the pandemic is man made and governments use this as an opportunity to seize control. The future America they depict has slowly changed into a police state dystopian nightmare with an ever increasing divide between the rich and poor. Homeless encampments fill American cities. Due to advancements in technology, the world is on the precipice of an AI revolution.

Haven't actually played the those games yet, but I got both Human Revolution and Mankind Divided for like 5 bucks each on Xbox. Once I finish Spec Ops I'll move on to that Deus Ex.

Me and my BFF are playing Terraria together 1 night a week after our kids are asleep. This is as much as our wives will let us play.

In addition to there being a Switch shortage, there is also a mario kart shortage. Sold out from a lot of first party sellers and used stock is either $$$ or hard to find.

Sure, could always buy a digital copy, but I've been trying to pick up used physical copies of any of those flagship games because they hold so much resale value. I'm not some kind of collector so odds are I will sell this console at some point. Digital copies are worth nothing. When I sold my N64 a while back, there were games that were worth more than the console.

I've got a custom ebay search running to show me newly listed BIN items that meet certain criteria. There are definitely still people who way under-price these games, but there are also people who must be running similar searches, because they get snapped up fast.

Coming back to Dead Cells after a while. It's even better after all the recent updates.
