I got my plans squared away for New Year's Eve, overnight stay in the hospital. Neck surgery and then 8 weeks of rehab. I am so crushing a backlog

I'll have xCloud with me, wondering if I should stock up on some Xbox funny money for Christmas sales tho


Hope it goes well! I'm getting reconstructive surgery for a torn scapholunate ligament in my left wrist and they're taking a tendon from my left index finger to repair it. Scheduled for surgery on 12/21/19, then I got 6 weeks of recovery and 6 weeks of rehab. No games. Think I might go crazy. Kill some of that backlog for me while I stare at my dormant X and PS4 Pro for 3 months!

Don't really understand the complaints about CTRN being of insane difficulty. Just as hard as it always was. I haven't played a kart racer since the original CTR, and I've got 3 trophies in 10 races. Much it the first runs were finding lines and familiarizing myself with the powerups and sliding. I'm sure it will start to suck later, but I'm enjoying it immensely. Always wanted to try Sonic Racing, but heard it was just okay. I might give it a shot on sale based on the love here.

Oh yeah, totally forgot about AC Unity. Damn, that's a lot of AC. I guess I'll get both the newest games and not worry about the old stuff I may never get to anyway. Thanks!

Nevermind. Prices changed already. I guess my indecision saved me some money. Yay?

Trying to figure out if I should go for AC Odyssey. I stalled halfway through AC3 because I just got bored as Fuck. I still have AC4, Syndicate, and Rogue in the backlog. I've loved all the AC games and their dlc up until 3, but I'm still so far behind. Also considering Origins. Will the story be completely jacked if I skip to Odyssey or Origins?

To piggyback on that notion, I think that gamers fall into two groups nowadays - gamers who play to be challenged and gamers who play to relax. If people want to be challenged while playing a game, there is a sense of accomplishment that comes from beating a difficult game or a difficult section of a game. But, I play to relax. My life is difficult enough as it is.


I admit, I've definitely changed in my old age. I used to start and beat everything on the hardest mode available, but I just don't have it in me anymore. I finally stopped when Max Payne 3 beat me down enough to see it wasn't fun anymore. I still start all the Halo games on Heroic, but that's about it for me. I actually shy away from games that mention extreme difficulty, as I just don't have the patience to be frustrated by something that's supposed to be fun. No shame!
