Fellow CAGs, 2020 is really taking its toll on me...

I'll still be on the site joining gaming conversations like regular. Gaming really does help and this forum has a lot of good people.


Wishing you well with your surgery. Just glad they caught it early and hopefully this will all just be a memory soon!

Sorry for all your troubles, but glad you caught it. My wife went through the same thing a few years ago and she did great and is still doing well. For post surgery I highly recommend you use bio-oil on the surgical site after the stitches are out. My wife applied it religiously everyday and you can barely see the scar now. https://www.amazon.c...z/dp/B00AREGVUM
Good luck and keep us posted!

This oil works very well, you'll need to apply it for quite a while but it helps a lot. Had some skin cancer and this saved me from gnarly scars. Hope you recover quickly and the worst is behind you!

Man of Medan, Darksiders Genesis, Trailmakers, It Lurks Below, Undermine and Xeno Crisis are all available on GamePass now. Can’t remember the last time we got that many games on the same day!

Thanks I added Undermine and Xeno Crisis to my download queue.

Darksiders Genesis is pretty great. Better than I expected. Nice Diablo clone set in the Darksiders world.

I've been playing it on PS4 and really enjoying it. I just wish the game gave you more incentive to change between the two characters. I think character specific quests or chapters would have been a nice addition.

Agreed, honestly the starting range attacks take significantly longer to kill to the point where I rarely wanted to play non-melee

Playstation state of play starting in a few minutes with focus on PS4 so more than likely means some XBox crossover as well.

I already see people hating on it. Sometimes I feel like the internet just wants no video games at all. Microsoft and Sony show off all these awesome games and everyone just hates on the events anyways.

Because people demand nothing, but either established franchises or huge big budget new franchises. If it's not primarily that then the bitching will commence. Though I never played Braid, I can tell you the nonstop "games as art" debate when it came out really makes me uninterested in that game still. With that being said, DRAMAAAAA ALERT!

I think the BOTW clone and pokemon clone i'm interested in, and the pedestrian puzzle game was probably the best thing shown. The other stuff was kinda boring to me and the Godfall segment was awful.

Thank you all for the well wishes. This truly is an awesome community. I know some of you are also struggling with medical conditions and losses in your families. I hope the best for all of you. Echotech83 and Kemosahbe, I'm going to check out the Bio Oil you recommended, thank you.

 

 

!!! Great they caught it early on all accounts. You'll be fine I know it! And neck scars are bad ass!

 

2ndopp whats your GT, I'll send some games your way so you got some stuff to play while you recover. I'm sure some of the regulars will do the same.

 

Fuck cancer

 

Thank you Pat, you are too kind. I do have a pretty big backlog of games, so please don't feel like you have to get me something. The sentiment alone means a lot to me.

 

I might also do some achievement hunting while I'm recovering. My gamertag is: x 2nd 0pp x (with a zero not an O)

I've been using TrueAchievements a lot more to find gaming sessions for old games https://www.trueachi...mer/x 2nd 0pp x

 

 

I will say you are really, really making me question the lymph node on the back of my neck now

It's definitely worth getting checked, even if it just ends up being a lymph node responding to a small infection or something else non-threatening. Mine was about the size of an almond and that triggered the Doctor to send me in for a non-invasive ultrasound. If anything, get it checked to have peace of mind

I hope they fix the store on the Xbox app. Right now everything has an Install button so there is no way to tell if you own it or not.

It was damaged when my step dad yanked out my hair at 18, I had been diagnosed with TSH Excess last year. I laugh every time I get head scans, now I can't do MRIs, I have a radiation warning talk over CT Scans now (average 1-2 yearly) so an ultrasound on my head might be different

I went iPhone back when I was traveling a lot because FaceTime was convenient to see my wife and kids, now that I’m not traveling anymore it might be time to move off the Apple ecosystem. I don’t use any of there other services or products so it would be a pretty easy move for me. I think my upgrade is in just a few months. It’s insane how anti consumer some companies are, cuz they can’t get there cut on Stadia or XCloud they make there users suffer. I gave Apple $1000 for this garbage phone, stop withholding services from me.

It’s odd to me that the beta would be allowed and then it gets shut down by Apple...

Edit: It’s because the beta was only Halo I guess, which is owned by Microsoft. The issue is that players would be streaming property owned by other developers. Pretty terrible.

I was actually surprised at the "global" numbers of Android vs Apple when this fallout started to happen. I thought Apple had way more of a foothold. I doubt it would change a lot of everyday user's minds, if I had Apple though I definitely would be switching

I think Apple will give in eventually. They already have enough anti-trust investigations in the US and especially in Europe.

I’m sure Microsoft hopes so. xCloud seems to be a big focus of their current and future plan with service-based subscriptions, so not being able to offer it to a sizable group of consumers is a decent blow.

The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal are coming to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5!
Now I feel safe to maybe finally pick up Doom Eternal and the Greymoor expansion for ESO. I've been avoiding some of the newer Xbox games until I know what their situation on Series X will be. I've almost completely stopped PlayStation purchases since their backwards compatibility and PS5 upgrades are so up in the air. On a side note, my hypothetical future Xbox Series X hard drive is filling fast :shock:

From Bethesda
 
"Players who own or purchase either title on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade for free to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions, respectively, when those versions are available. Additionally, our teams are working hard to ensure both titles will support backwards compatibility when the new consoles launch.
 
We’ll have more information to share in the coming weeks and months about The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 including expected release windows and a list of enhancements. And while we don’t have any news to share just yet on our remaining catalogue of titles, we can confirm we are committed to offer free upgrades for current generation console owners of existing Bethesda titles we bring forward into the next generation of consoles.
 
Finally, be sure to tune into twitch.tv./Bethesda for QuakeCon At Home Aug 7 – 9 for information about all the latest Bethesda titles."
