I'm going to be a write off when Death Stranding is released.
I went with my brother, his mate and a bunch of their kids to a really great retro arcade on Sunday. You pay a reasonable one-off price and then all games are unlimited free play from then on. They had either rigged-up a small red button where the coin slot used to be on the cabinet, or you just pushed the 1up / 2up buttons.
Have to say, it was the best time i've had in ages. We stayed for nearly six hours and were a bit frazzled by the end, but we all had stupid grins on our faces. They had a great selection of Driving / Shooting / Classic cabinets. They also had a few pinball machines.
I played mostly on Galaga, Bust-a-Move, Prop Cycle, Robotron, Aliens Extermination, Raiden II, Virtua Cop II . . . . and the best one? That had to be the original Atari Star Wars sit-down vector cabinet. Man did that take me back, and the game still stands-up really well. Still very playable and cool
Started The Outer Worlds yesterday and stayed glued to my laptop for half the day. Sad as it is, I see myself doing the same today I told myself that, since I want to throw myself whole-heartedly into Cyberpunk 2077 in a few months, I'd only play The Outer Worlds if it turned out exceptional.
And then it did. Well, shit. The writing and story hit all the right capitalist dystopia nightmare notes. As in, one corporation owns the whole starting town and employs everyone. That includes employing the gravedigger and owning the graves, so I spent a side-quest collecting graveyard rent payments from folks. Then discovered that the mortician couldn't pay, and suggested he hand over an IOU. Except he had no collateral, besides a pile of gold teeth.
Why does he have a pile of gold teeth? Because he pulled them from the mouth of a receptionist who killed himself at work. And he did that because suicide counts as destruction of company property. He needed to pay up or the whole town would be liable for the damages.
Anyway, if you loved Fallout and hate your boss, check it out.

I was hoping to see a positive review for this game on here. Really want to buy it but worried about how I'll stop getting other work done. Looking forward to buying this during my thanksgiving break
I have the Xbox Game Pass and Outer Worlds is on it so I have been taking advantage of that and really enjoying the game. Dialogue is superb and I am hoarding and stealing like Skyrim. I am still around the first town. It feels like Fallout, Mass Effect and Skyrim all in one and in space!
Gundam Battle Operation 2. Your MSV dreams will come true.
Finished FE3H: Blue Lion playthrough. Started up NG+ to do Black Eagle route. I originally intended to blaze through follow-up runs, but the RP elements are really the best part of the game. So I’ll probably take my time and get at least 200 hours out of this game.
Also finished two runs on Man of Medan. My wife did the “blind run” and almost everyone died. I played through with her guidance, and we saved everyone...sort of. Good concept, fun game, but it lags often. That’s hard to deal with, in a game where everything is a quicktime event.
Probably gonna pick up Pokemon Sword next week, but still iffy. They cut a lot of features, but it still looks like a fun multiplayer experience.
King of Fighters Allstar is pretty much everything right now. Never thought a mobile gacha game would be this fun.
I just started The Outer Worlds as well, and it's pretty fun so far.
I also grabbed the new Modern Warfare. It was awesome to see a co-op mode on there. A buddy of mine finally broke down and grabbed an xbox and MW so we could play together. Unfortunately, co-op mode really sucks. It's unnecessarily difficult, with rapidly spawning bad guys (sometimes right behind you, immediately after clearing an area).
also started playing outer worlds. Well, I think I'm nearly done with it. Played the crap out of it last weekend. Awesome game. I wish it had more you could do with your character but the dialogue is great. I'm already jonesing for dlc.
Luigi's Mansion 3 is so charming. I really like it.
Seconded now that I've spent more time with it. There are rough edges for sure, and indications that the budget wasn't massive. Regular NPCs don't seem to have routines that give the impression of a living world, which also makes it harder to rob people blind in the night and outside of a couple of fun companion interactions your spaceship doesn't have much going on. Lack of a third person mode, not a ton of guns, etc etc. But the bones are excellent, and what we do get from the companions really adds to the game. So I hope it does really well and squeezes a bigger sequel out of the publisher.
That said, I've only encountered one nasty bug so far, and the game runs really well on my PC. Considering what a mess pretty much every Bethesda game has been at launch, and even after many patches, I'm glad they devoted time to making a game that works and doesn't rely on the free labour of modders to fix everything.
That damn Luigi and his irresistible ways.
