  1. Game looks awesome! Wish I could find a damn Series X somewhere. Had an easier time getting the PS5; seriously.
  2. So, I’m joining this conversation late. I’ll start off by saying, I was one of the haters. After I watched a streamer talk about how after reading the major leak that came out, he cancelled his preorder, I just had to know what was so bad that would cause a huge fan, to kill his preorder. I mean, I was a huge fan of the first one too. Maybe I should cancel if it’s that bad… So I watched the leak videos, and was so pissed off that I canceled my preorder. Fuck TLOU2. Fast forward to just after the ps5 patch came out. Was jonesing for a new game for my shiny ps5. TLOU2 had always been in the back of my mind. Loved the first game so much, MAYBE I could stomach what they did to the 2nd one. Well, I put just over 30 hours in my first play through, and I’m almost at the midway point on my 2nd play through on new game plus, on hard. I’m no where near as eloquent as others here, so I won’t go into any deep personal thoughts on the story and what it all means. Others have said it much better than I. I will; however, state that, without giving anything away, I dislike Abby. Before playing, I had abject hatred for her. After playing…I agree with her decision. I understand her. Even shocked myself in realizing, I’m on her side. I just don’t like her as a person. If this were all real, I’d hang out with Ellie. I just like her overall demeanor way more than Abby’s. Guess it doesn’t hurt that we both play guitar. Hell, on that note, I lift weights and I’m bigger than Abby. Maybe her and I actually could get along… 😎 As I sat and thought about my whole experience in TLOU2, the biggest thing I was left with was the old adage that, there’s 2 sides to a story. The game really made me think.
  3. I found this part to be a real bitch. Usually love dogs but, in this game, they were my first targets.
  4. Makes waiting for a PS5, and playing this game on it, quite a bit easier. Looking forward to it, big time!
  5. That’s cool. If it’s makes this game even better, the delay is no problem. Like mentioned above; it might make it easier to simply wait for the next gen hardware, to play it on. Definitely purchasing the two new machines. Not sure which one would be better to play this on. Might not even matter.
  6. I tend to turn green with VR but, I’ve noticed that my “VR legs” have gotten stronger over time, and can play a lot longer than in the beginning. Still, every now and then, it seems like the stars align in such a way that all of a sudden I get hit with that stomach churning vertigo. Did about 4 hours straight in No Mans Sky. Was doing great. After taking off from the surface of yet another planet, I turned my head to look out the left window of my ship, as I was skimming over the surface, to eye up my next landing spot. Wham!!! Nausea out of nowhere. Immediately took off the PSVR.
  7. I’ll be getting one at launch, as well as the PS5. Definitely more excited for the PS5, since Xbox really doesn’t have much, by way of exclusives, that I care about anymore. I’m just a tech whore, and would like to have one. Kinda interested in whatever they’re cooking up for the next Halo, but totally over the whole ‘Gears universe. Played the hell outta the first 3, and have had enough. The only place this new Xbox will fit, will be on the top shelf of my rack. Going to have to change things around. I hope the PS5 isn’t vertically designed.
  8. Just “finished” the game, about an hour ago. Put 186 hours into it, at this point. That was THE LONGEST “ending”, I’ve ever experienced. To the point where it was grating on my nerves. I’ve really enjoyed the gameplay but, I think the over arching story is just way to nonsensical. Convoluted on steroids. Anyhow, keep on keeping on!!!
  9. Still playing. Still enjoying it. Been spending a lot of time building up the road system. VASTLY improves hauling cargo. Surprised that with all the attention to detail, that there isn’t a day/night cycle. Seems like it would be quite a bit more tense hunting BT’s, at night.
  10. I’m liking it, so far. Very early as well. Basically on my very first mission, to the very first “knot”. I think the desolation of the gorgeous environment is going to keep me drawn in. It was one of the main things I loved about SotC. The loneliness and isolation, for some reason, draws me into games that have it. Probably will see this through to the end. ...and it’s damn weird, so far.
  11. Reviews are out. Sounds like it’s ranging from great, to seriously “meh. I’m off on launch day, and I had planned to get it. I may wait a bit to see what you guys think. I’m not a yuuuuuge Hideo fan. I’ve liked some of the MGS’s I’ve played but, I may wait this one out a bit.
  12. If they ever get the iwatch to read blood sugar amounts, I’ll be buying one.
