Since it came out on switch, I finally got Anodyne. It's a surreal Zelda inspired game with a lot of self-aware elements. I'm digging it a lot as there's something magical about its tone that feels fresh and unique.

Devil May Cry 5 is corny as hell, and I kinda love it.

Edit: This guy gets it.

Found that I had $65 still kicking around in an old Full Tilt Poker account. It's probably been over 5 years since I logged in, so it was a pleasant surprise. :)

The more i play Apex the more i feel like playing PUBG again but i think the slowness compared to Apex will stop me in my tracks.

The skill curve is incredibly high for PUBG and the low's are incredibly low when compared to most online shooters; that said, when you master your aim and perform that perfect flanking maneuver while coordinating with a well-oiled squad, this game has given more adrenaline rushes and satisfying victories that have not been rivaled before/since.

I'm also pretty sure I've hit a hard 180 turn with Devil May Cry 5. After the initial thrill of the first 5 or 6 levels, the constant button-mashing and bland environments have really worn on me. I'm not sure I'm going to finish this one, especially considering how nonsensical and silly the story/characters are, especially considering that The Division 2 drops on Friday--my main rotation might be PUBG, Apex, The Division 2, with some Dirt Rally 2.0 sprinkled in.

Yeah, Fortnite and Apex are both pushing it for me in terms of inaction. It's right on the edge of what I'm willing to tolerate.

Hit level 30 in Tom Clancyís The Division 2 yesterday, and, man, this game sucked me in hard. I got burnt out on the original (though I did bounce back in for the stellar survival dlc), but this gameís improvements on the original, the phenomenal world design, and comparing loot with a solid clan Iíve been playing with (aka Noisy Boyz), all have culminated in a rad gaming experience. The shooting feels great, and the production design is top tier (looks great on the Xbox One X). Weíll see how long the end game and treks into the dark zones will sustain me, but Iíve had more than my moneyís worth thus far.

Oh and I pre-ordered Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (TOMORROW!)

Oh and Iím pumped for Battlefield V: Firestorm (MONDAY!)

I entered one of my funks where I'm just not in the mood to play video games right now. Couldn't have come at a worst time as Sekiro was the big game I was looking forward to playing this year. I'll probably pick it up sometime down the line but right now I find myself enjoying other hobbies more.
