    ] I got my wish sooner than I thought. I feel like I'm nearing the end so can't wait to find out!! . Something's up with [
    ].

    As for the game being unpleasant, it's in a league of its own allright. But is it more so than a particularly vicious season of walking dead? So far, no objections. It feels like a storytelling and word-building Milestone. Would have been even more so if it had been the first installment.

    Wife told me to get the boys a Switch for their birthdays this year (their 2 weeks apart), so I ordered that, Mario Kart 8, and Mario. The games will be here next week. The system next month :/.

    Morris, it's been fun to read your Last of Us 2 reactions now that the hype/backlash has dissipated. Most people who reacted negatively to the game primarily cite [
    ] as reasons why. IMO these criticisms are paradoxical: despite their personal shortcomings in the first game, Ellie and Joel came to be so dear to people's hearts they were less willing to give full authorship to Naughty Dog, who continued the story in a logical (if challenging) direction based on E&J's established character flaws. ND made such great characters that audiences felt as if they knew them and therefore had strong opinions about what their motivations ought to be (common criticisms include "MY Ellie wouldn't have done that," or "I'll never be able to forgive Abby for what she did," etc.), and we always want to believe the best about people we love. It's a boundary-pushing exercise in perspective -- in these games everyone does bad things to survive, yet we still side with the ones we know best.

    I think it's a masterpiece, on par with the original. A bit too long though.

    Thanks. Hey did you all know you can catch ammo in midair if you're quick? Been discovered just recently. Just read about it.

    I guess I was expecting another bombshell to drop with Duke saying 'to keep going' and Eric that 'I would know when I knew' indicating it would be a can't miss moment.

    I felt like I should be main lining Monster Energy drink while playing Doom. Never got too far #gettingold.
    “In fact, just thinking about those tender little White Castle burgers with those little, itty-bitty grilled onions that just explode in your mouth like flavor crystals every time you bite into one... just makes me want to burn this motherfucker down.”

    Doom 2016 was maybe my favorite game that year. Freaking incredible.

    Control Ultimate Edition was officially released today and we don't already have a five paragraph essay from meg and therefore I am upset.

    It's funny, if I had a PS5 right now my first two purchases would be Demon's Souls and Control -- two games I've already played a lot.

    This is why Epic acquired the Serbian company 3Lateral... I have good friends and former colleagues who have been working on this for years, nice to see it official.
