Wow, NieR: Automata is f*cking amazing. What a game. Fantastic gameplay and extremely fun. It runs like melted butter and the soundtrack is gorgeous.

Just managed to run Madden NFL 20 on my 6-year-old trashtop. The little engine that could! Probably less than 20 fps at the lowest settings, but works for me.

Any No Man Sky players here? I never played the 2016 version, which I heard was utter crap, but the developers worked so hard on free updates and expanding the game and now it's pretty awesome playing with friends. They are continuing to move forward with a ps5 port, where the game will be free if you already bought it for ps4. Weird fun and super awesome when you play with friends. They're boasting up to 32 players for co-op on ps5, which is insane! I don't even have 32 friends who play the game, lol...anyway, it looks pretty sick.

Got IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings - Tobruk and IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 Complete Edition.

Always loved war planes and dogfights, but damn, controlling an airplane is tough. Played on easy with no damage and unlimited ammo, managed to bring down max. 5 planes in like 2 hours. You need some proper equipment to make the best of it.

Anyone here excited for either PS5 or the new XBOX?
Excited and definitely interested, but realistically won't need it anytime soon. I play on PS4 primarily with friends and don't really have an urge to get a PS5 right away. Honestly, we'd be playing the same games we're currently playing on the PS4, lol. Good thing the games we play are cross-play compatible from PS5 to PS4.

But the SSD load times, graphics, enhanced interface, and the awesome controller looks really good. Going to wait for more PS5 multiplayer titles to come out before jumping in.

Yup! I really can't wait to get my hands on that PS5, although I haven't pre-ordered one so that probably won't happen for at least a couple of months.
That game lineup though... I just can't get my hands down. All of these games are all released between now and the end of 2021: Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon: Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnanok and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. I'll probably end up buying all of them on day 1 (Spider-man being the exception, due to not having a PS5 yet).
Even that Demon's Souls remake looks pretty amazing, and that comes from someone who has never been a fan of the souls-games. But this one... I kinda can't resist giving this remake a proper try).

At least I still have a bunch of PS4 games I haven't played yet. So I guess now is the time to look into those.

I'm more of a Skyrim mods kind of person, lmao
This game is endless. So many things are out there. Tried to do a 100% achievements run as well, but still have a looooong way to go.

Started playing War Thunder, of all games. Love myself some WW2 air combat. Mixed feelings about this one. It's easy to play in arcade mode, but due to other players, it can become difficult. It's really simple, yet very complicated because there are the artillery, navy etc. Also, the microtransaction system is just insane. On the positive, the graphics are really nice and there are lots of airplanes in there.

Don't think I'll play it for too long. MMO thing is not for me. Requires just too much damn play time. It gets too repetitive before you can unlock airplanes that you want, and because it's the same thing even when you do, there's no reward.

After IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings - Tobruk lost my joystick controls for the 3rd time, I never got around to setting up the controls again, because I'm not crazy. Probably gonna delete it.

If you wanna try something to really expand your brown starfish, try Loverslab for Skyrim mods. That place is absolutely fucking wild.

Yes mate, i hope to get the Ps5 on thursday.
yes man, i am optimistic that the ps5 will arrive on thursday. the controller came this week already, with an adapter it can even be used at the nintendo switch.

Nevertheless i am very disappointed with the game lineup. I would have liked to have had cyberpunk directly

Finished The Last Of Us 2 a couple of weeks ago and it's an awesome game. Honestly no idea why it got so much hate.

Currently playing Jedi Fallen Order. Liking it so far. Kinda a mixture of Dark Souls combat mechanics and Prince Of Persia platforming and puzzles.

Last of Us 2 cuts deep! My favorite part was when Ellie got to that record shop in Seattle and busted out an old 80's banger on the guitar (didn't want to spoil it if you missed it somehow!). I love that song, it sounds so good on the acoustic guitar!

JFO is a pretty good game imo. One of the better Star Wars games in recent time.

Currently killing time with Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and will probably tackle Control after that.

So, did anyone actually manage to get one, haha?
I'm considering a PS5 since pretty much every Xbox game will be available on PC anyway. But I won't buy one until Spring or Summer
