I watched the GDC Stadia presentation again today while working and damn... I know most tech presentations always promise too much, but it's extra hilarious when it's Google and Phil Harrison.

Kindof ticked that I sold my Vive not long ago, then Half Life VR gets announced. They need to do two obvious things though: 1 make it wireless, 2 increase resolution. First person games were meant for this platform, it just needs to evolve a bit more.

Other then that I beat Sekiro so I've moved on to Nioh. Also playing Original Sin 2 coop every once in a while.

Baba is You is VERY good. A must-play for puzzle game fans. Some of the most creative problem solving I've ever done in a game.

Been hooked on the new Modern Warfare online these past few weeks. I honestly haven't enjoyed a CoD this much since CoD4 (for the record this is still inferior)

Also bought GTA V for PS4 yesterday. Even though I had it on the PS3 and completed it when it came out, I still feel I kinda neglected it. Usually I sink days into just fucking around on those games but I don't have much recollection of doing so on this one, so I'm just making up for lost time.

Not particularly hyped for anything else in the near future. HL Alyx would be cool but I don't have VR, nor a capable rig. Psychonauts 2 should be sweet but who knows when that's dropping, and I'm kinda worried the Microshaft acquisition is gonna flatten Double Fine eventually.

HL Alyx does look cool. But I'd need an expensive VR set, plus very likely a whole new PC just to be able to play it. So I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble.

Still deeply immersed in No Man's Sky at the moment. Just now completed the base-building quests, and only recently learned the art of rapid profiteering. Still need to get to the Euclid galactic core. But I like what's been done with the latest Synthesis update, especially the Personal Refiner. Pretty much makes the Portable one obsolete, as you can refine materials literally anywhere now.

What’s so good about it? I heard about the hyper capitalist story and feared it would be too depressing.

I'm in the same boat, enjoying it very much. Some of the best maps in any COD for a long time.

recently played through Wolfenstein: The New Order. Didn't expect to like it that much but it was pretty dang awesome, first half especially. Switched over to Far Cry 5, there's so goddamn much to do in this game, kinda overwhelming... classic Ubisoft eh. My only other experience with FC was 3, I don't think I even got halfway through that one. The setting of 5 is what enticed me, I love the parallels with the Rajneesh compound in Oregon. I'm also just a sucker for evil Christian baddies. 

also, BONEWORKS. Fuck yeah. Truly awesome when the physics are working well, and truly frustrating when I get my hand stuck in a drawer. Just like real life.

Wolfenstein: TNO is awesome. I remember more than two years ago being hyped for The New Colossus since at the time it was partly intended as a middle finger to the alt-right and their rise to prominence. But after playing the game itself I felt like it was a mixed bag. It just didn't have the consistency and context that its predecessor did. Also I heard Viktor Antonov (who worked on HL2) was involved for the level design throughout The New Order.

Far Cry 5 certainly had some fun moments. I particularly enjoyed flying around in a heli...could pilot a chopper way better than I ever could a plane lol. I'm not sure whether I'd play New Dawn again tho.

It's basically a PC tower, eh?

The name-calling has already begun (in Japan at least) due to how it's pronounced: https://kotaku.com/the-xbox-series-x-has-nicknames-like-sex-and-butt-x-1840409429

But if I am being honest, I prefer the way this looks over what the PS5 may look like (the bonkers renderings we previously saw are what the dev kits actually look like):

Image result for ps5 dev kit

I mean holy crap is that a backwards early '00 design or what? Making it look like a roman numeral 5 is something a first-year design student would do...

I imagine the design is purely functional, to maximize cooling or something? I read a few articles that suggested that wouldn't be the final design it was just for the devs.

I like the simple design of the xbox. Looks like you could sit on it and play games while warming your butt.
