Nothing caught my eye either from E3. Elden Ring got a lot of buzz but looks like a Dark Souls type game which I hate.

But I really hate the new trend of showing a trailer and then announcing the game will be out maybe in a few years. How about showing me games we will see in the next few months?

I play it for a little bit when a new DLC comes out just to see what changes/new classes/etc, its worth checking out on the PS5 if you played any of the other ES games

I think Nintendo generally agrees with you. They try not to show trailers for games that aren't expected to be released before next E3

Starfield now has a release date-Nov 11 2022, which is exactly 11 years after Skyrim released. Doubt it keeps that date given game development these days, but still a nice tip of the hat to Skyrim

The coil whine on the PS5 is brutal. Cutting corners on the PSU is going to mean these won't last too long. Kind of wish I had waited since they don't really have any games for it and don't seem to be much in the pipeline. But I was scared my OG PS4 was going to die.

They definitely cut some corners this generation. The SSD is way too small. The build quality on the controllers shipped with the systems wasn't as good as controllers purchased separately as well. Not sure if that's been resolved since the first couple months of shipments.

The SSD size was most definitely due to costs, as those drives are expensive even on the retail market. Of course Sony hasn't activated the internal SSD slot yet. Though they have allowed you to store PS5 games on an external drive.

Just got Spider-Man Miles Morales, and Spider-Man Remastered from it. Looks fantastic. I know 60fps is great, but the Fidelity mode (full raytracing targeting 4k) at 30fps is get fantastic. Ratchet and Clank looks better (it is a solely PS5 game) but I got MM for $32 used and then spent $20 on the PS Store to upgrade it to get SM remastered.

Well I feel like a dummy.. finally got game pass ultimate and it cost me all of a $1 for the next year due to the conversion of my XBL account.

Lots of games for Xbox and PC, plus EA Play.

Random fun thing in the batcave tonight: kid pack pulled Trout in MLB The Show. That's the holy grail card at the moment, that's something you don't have happen in a lifetime of gaming sometimes (the net has plenty of guys who've played every iteration of the game religiously and never pulled THE card)

Just fun to experience that moment (I had to remind him to not be so loud that he wakes his mother upstairs lol)

That's cool Jon. I remember back in the day when people pulled rare/expensive Magic The Gathering cards (never me of course) and went crazy over it. Congrats to him!

I see the gameplay video is from Nookrium. Probably means I'm going to like it-I put it on my wishlist and wait for it to come out on Steam.

It was on sale for $4 so I picked it up after watching his video. It's a retro turned based/real time combat adventure game. (a bit like a Total War game where you can cast spells during combat and place your units)

You collect resources and build stuff at the towns you own. Simplistic on the surface, yet lots of strategy on whom to attack, what to build, etc..
