I finally caved and spent money on a new game this year, forking over the $5 for Death of the Outsider. Dishonored 2 is in my backlog, might as well get the complete series. I went nearly 7 full months without pointlessly adding to the backlog. Willpower!

 
 
 

Like last time, the PS4 turned on again the next day. Unlike last time, it shut off again during the system restore. Curses. Update: tried again after coming home. It turned on! This is so weird. I'm afraid to turn it off again. Or even touch it.

 
 
 

Ps4 stopped turning on again. It's the exact same issue I had 3 months ago that magically fixed itself. I hope I'm that lucky again. I really don't want to buy a new one (or spend nearly as much on repairs) so close to the arrival of the next gen.

 
 
 

I played a bit of coop RE6 with a non-gamer friend yesterday,and she was amazed by how incredible it looked, she could hardly believe it was a 7-year old game. For the jaded gamer, obviously,it looks meh at this point. Expectations can be a bitch.

 
 
 

Finished Far Cry 4 after 20 hours and 50% completion. It's very much more of the same, but if you, like me, are okay with that, it's great.

 
 
 

Just watched Netflix's Saint Seiya. I was a huge fan of the anime as a kid. I thought the move to CGI looked awful when I saw screenshots, but I liked it in motion. Happy to say I liked the series overall, too bad there are so few episodes.

 
 
 

If you don't love the USA, you're free to leave, says Trump. Decades ago, our military dictatorship used the slogan "Brazil: love it or leave it" against dissent. The rethorical similarities are not a coincidence.

 
 
 

I've been watching Law and Order SVU for 20 seasons, and somehow I'm still not tired of it.

 
 
 

I had a good time with Risen in 2009 and Risen 2 in 2011 (and apparently I was the only one!). Risen 3 isn't necessarily worse, but after 5-6 hours it's clear that my expectations have changed in 2019 and it doesn't work for me anymore. Moving on.

 
 
 

You know how, when you have a companion, they're typically mostly for flavor and utterly useless in combat? Risen 3 seems to turn that idea around, making you useless and your companion powerful. So far I've mostly been dodging enemies while he kills them

 
 
 

Continuing my backlog deep dive, I just finished Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. It was... good? Really good, even. I haven't heard good things about this series, so that was a nice surprise.

 
 
 
 

Man,I really wanted to like Alien Isolation, but it doesn't really work for me. Way too frustrating. I might power through to the end if it was a 5-10 hour game (I'd even be close to the end already),but I don't see myself doing this for 20+ hours. Shame.

 
 
 

Giving Alien isolation another shot. I remember playing 1 or 2 hours, but don't remember why I stopped. Possibly another game stole my attention away.

 
 
 

I ran Steam idlemaster and dropped 90 cards. Is there a recommended time to sell them, like during a sale, right before or after, or it doesn't matter?

 
 
 

Starcraft 2 ruined old RTS games for me. Try as I might,I can't stand their bad controls and UI anymore.

 
 
 

Unsurprisingly, watching or reading Sherlock Holmes is a lot more fun than playing Sherlock Holmes.

 
 
 

Is Tropico 5 worth a shot if I haven't played a city builder in decades and am only interested in the campaign?

 
 
 
 

So, turns out being on vacation and playing videogames all day long is pretty great!

 
 
 
 

What's the state of Wii U emulation these days? Is there anything already anything reliable like Dolphin?

 
 
 

I'm not going to renew my Plus subscription when it expires in 20 days, so I've been checking out the plus games I'm curious about. So far nothing has kept my interest for more than 1 or 2 hours. Maybe Soma will do the trick?

Taking a peek at politics, it seems Britain now has its own Trump to lead it as well as appointing to the anti-Semitimism committee the guy who wrote a terrible pamphlet about Romani and Never change,
