I’m actually doing both. I’m getting digital for Xbox as that’s what I have the newest hardware for, but I am getting the physical version on PS4 at Best Buy for the steel book, and because I have a problem. I played the original Mass Effect on 360 and then played part 2 on 360 doing a paragon path. When Mass Effect 2 later got announced for PS3 I jumped ship because I was primarily a PS3 gamer at the time. I decided to replay the game and went with a renegade path just to change it up. When Mass Effect 3 came out I bought it on both so I could finish both my runs. I then ended up buying the physical version of the trilogy on PS3 because I wanted a physical copy of Mass Effect 1 on PS3. At that point I had bought every Mass Effect game on console, so when Mass Effect 3 got a Wii U port I said why not. At this point I’m just keeping the ridiculousness alive. I’ll do a paragon run on Xbox, and when I later get a PS5 a year or two down the line I’ll go through it again doing renegade. Every time I read some stupid decision I see somebody post I think about this and tell myself, yep I’m stupid as Fuck sometimes too.

You are not alone in the stupidity, I also own the trilogy in multiple formats.  

 

Mass Effect: xbox, origin

Mass Effect 2: xbox, origin, PC physical collectors edition

Mass Effect 3:  xbox, xbox collectors edition, origin, and wii u

 

I was always tempted to buy the box set but resisted.  Now I am going to buy the legendary edition on steam but I really want that steel book so may need the xbox version as well.

Seems going from Control where you are basically Magneto with a gun to Resident Evil 2 was a bad idea.  Shooting a zombie in the face 10 times before it might die comparatively isn't all that fun when you were just throwing enemies into other enemies and annihilating everything in front of you.  

 

Decided to replay Borderlands 2 instead and I have to say that ultra HD texture pack really makes the game look modern.

I'm getting very anxious waiting (and hoping) for Newegg to put XBL cards on sale again.  Based on what I saw on slickdeals, it looks like it happens every 10-14 days.  I really hope it goes on sale soon, I'd like to dive into Game Pass now that I have an Xbox.

Newegg has a year of gold on sale for 50 bucks with promo code 93XQU34.

Finally finished Control the other night.  The story was fine but the atmosphere, the world around it, and the slow drip of combat mechanics really pulled me in.  Having Akira powers in a game makes for a good time.  Rolled credits but have the DLC to finish but have connection to Allen Wake and honestly just want the end to be the end.   Tried playing the foundation DLC but it didn't hold the same appeal.  

 

Think im going to try to get through Journey (PC) next.  Looking to complete some stuff from my back log this year before more stuff starts rolling out.

I bet most everyone has this already but it’s been awhile since we have had a give away so

LIKE THIS POST TO ENTER TO WIN CASTLEVANIA SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT.

Winner to be selected Monday evening.

Edit: As it turns out I don’t think you can gift 360 games so it may end up being a 5 dollar gift card that you can use towards SoTN or anything else.

Its not exactly Monday evening but I figure everyone who has seen that post and was going to like it has done so by now.  Decided to make it 3 winners instead of 1 because why not.   Winners are as follows

Messages will be sent out directly after this post.  Thank you for being members of this community and please enjoy your 5 dollars towards Castlevania or anything else you might pick.

Had to look to see if that tweet was from today and not another April fools day joke. Quite surprising, going to have to give the show a download.

My daily bing earnings went from 150/150/100 to 150/20/100. Guess that extra 150 was for last month only.

I was too damn late on the 5 dollar credit email.  Got the email but they already ran out of codes.

Cant imagine Archer without Jessica Walter voicing Malory.

Sorry for your loss, Bear.  A beloved pet is always a hard loss.

You guys. I Fucking hate hub worlds I realize. Unless it's a platformer with collectibles crammed into it, I fucking hate hub worlds and it makes me realize they did all this work for this dumb world where it takes 10-20 minutes to do something when I can get it done a quarter of the time if it was just entirely menu based.

That's one of the bigger problems i have with Destiny is having to return to the tower, waiting to load in and then having to wait to load back to a planet.  Borderlands 3 was not great about it either with having to keep returning to Sanctuary.  

 

Also who ever started the trend of having to hold a button down to do things that a simple press would work for can go to hell.

I think I am going to attempt to save enough bing points for a Series X.  By the time they are regularly in stock I may have enough.

Seems I'm the odd man out in this but Hulu is my favorite streaming platform.  Its fairly cheap, especially compared to Netflix, has a lot of great broadcast/cable shows both current seasons and old, easy access to WWE programing that is up to date unlike their network.  Hulu original movies arent great but their shows are pretty good.  Futureman is easily one of my favorite streaming originals.  The last few black Fridays they offer deals on their ad supported sub for I think 2 dollars a month.  

 

I really dislike Netflix these days, they keep raising prices and I never find anything to watch there.  HBO Max is better than i expected it to be.

I had really hoped that Ninja Gaiden collection would be a full remaster.  Just seems like straight ports of the sigma games.  Glad to have it on PC and switch at least.
