I mean, mine is somewhat... lol at least at the end...

But I removed it, as it was a bit too silly for a video games forum.

I donít think itís a dog pileÖ but all I did was express mild disappointment about this monthís PS+ games, and Decker just had to get in his point about GWG, a service most here only have or pay attention to through attrition, or because they have GPU, if at all.
Itís a whole lot of concern over something that doesnít have much weight on anything on topic.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20


Point of my original post was that I was please to be getting NBA 2K23 for free. I rarely buy sports games (even when they drop cheap, like I think this has several times), and while Game Pass sets me up nicely with last year's EA Sports titles, I haven't played a Basketball game in years. This PS Plus freebie was good news to me, though I do understand that 2K is pretty microtransaction-crazy. But as long as I can play a game against my son on my sofa, I am happy to check this one out.

I downloaded Trek to Yomi on day 1 via GP, partly because I was still on a Ghost of Tsushima jag. I have not yet played it.

It's a very ok game!
I had fun with it, but stopped playing around 70% and never went back.

I hate it when Iím this superficial, but the previews didnít look like Ghost of Tsushima, so it took some of the wind out of my sails.

Sony's annual Days of Play sale is now live. Deals on accessories and physical games through PlayStation Direct.

Figure that all those physical games will be on sale digitally for the same price, if they aren't already.

That God of War Ragnarok CE has that really cool MjŲlnir replica that I mounted up in my man cave. It's a really sweet collectable.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Pretty fascinating video that's both impressive yet leaves you shaking your head (At Sony) .......after watchiong it you have to ask a lot of whys. By all accounts a Bloodborne Remastered in Unreal Engine 5 was literally right there....not to mention a sort of spin-off called Bloody Doctor....that since Sony threw THESE TWO GUYS...yep, just two did this....under the bus, their Bloody Doctor game was self published and went to Steam instead of PS5.....

I've been keeping my eye on it as long as you guys but finding it hard to pull the trigger. I still only play 1-2 games at a time. I've just gotten in the habit of deleting games once I'm done.

Yeah if you hadn't needed it up to this point prices are only going to keep going down. I'll probably wait until at least Black Friday.

Exact same here. Kinda sucks but it's been real nice having it. I need to check to see how much storage I have left at this point; just downloaded Grand Turismo...

YES, that's exactly why I got it (this weekend 40% off) and you are right--it is totally incredible. The VR experience w/this game just blows me away.
