  1. Can't believe it's already Friday again. Anyway, going to be working on Maneater this weekend. If I finish, probably will do Oxenfree next. Next Friday is Ghost of Tsushima! :yay: What are you all doing?

      @Masamune Oh, that's right. xD Sorry, sometimes my memory isn't much better than a goldfish's.

      @Masamune Lol. Well, at least I got a disc. And yeah, I have heard of GameStop's definition of "New..."

      @ResoluteRock I haven't reinstalled it yet. xD 


      @CorrinFireEmblem I'll post my impressions when I'm done.

      MaximumOverdrive

      Finally. I'm happy for you. Have fun!

  3. Just got around to watching Night City Wire and some of the new Cyberpunk 2077 footage. Though it looks a bit rough, still plenty of time for improvement. Rough or no, looks like it'll be fun. Hopefully no more delays! 

  4. I normally think the fact I’m paranoid is a bad thing. However, in the pandemic, thinking it’s a good thing. Means I’m much less likely to do something stupid or reckless to make myself sick. I know I can only do so much, but you get my point.

      nothing wrong with alittle paranoia. and what are you thoughts on the state flag changing?

      my mistake. i thought it was the missouri flag that changed. 

  5. To the disrespectful asshole who was still shooting off fireworks in my neighborhood at 1 AM: fuck you!

      Someone's been playing too much Ratchet & Clank. 😂 But damn, it did look kinda cool... too bad I'm not dumb enough to try it. 😅

  7. It's Friday once again! First, some good news: I ordered a new PS4 yesterday and should have it by the middle of next week. Now onto the usual. I'm going to try and do some gaming. Saturday is Independence Day, so I'll be having a cookout and doing fireworks with my family (there's almost no COVID concerns, don't worry). Other than that, not sure. What about the rest of you?

      @Edunstar84 - I'll call and hope I get a sympathetic person willing to check. @DamagingRob I have tracking. On the website, it said it was delivered, but no one was home. I have no idea where they have it. Typically, they would leave a slip for later pick-up. Also, I live in Norway, so......

      I bought Double Dragon and Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle and Cricket 19, both are 50% off at this time in the NA Store. Of which I'm doing better with Cricket 19. I have the Plat for Ashes Cricket (2017) so I wanted to do this one when it went on sale. Who would have thought that I would be good at this series?

    4. MaximumOverdrive

      Glad about your PS4! Hope you do get it next week. 

      I'm just playing Call of Duty Black Ops. 

  8. Though my plans for the month got repeatedly derailed, decided to go ahead and do the May/June update. 

     

    3,500 trophies-2,883

    65 :platinum:-55/65

    90% completion-82.13%

    Reduce overall backlog-No change

    Reduce number of incomplete games-Steady at 28

     

    Not a ton of progress, but a bit more than May.

      @XchocomanX Kinda hard without a PS4. xD 

    3. XchocomanX

      True, but still, I'll be waiting for that plat......foreverrrrr  lol

    4. MidnightDragon

      I hope to fix that problem within a week or so. However, probably won't go back to it until after Ghost of Tsushima. And if you're wondering, I did back up the save, so I can continue where I left off, but no more turbo all nighters. I think that's part of what led to my console's demise.

  9. Got an email from PlayStation. My account’s third birthday was yesterday. Good to know, though I wish it was under better circumstances. 

    1. Berendsapje

      Happy late birthday nonetheless!

    2. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      My actual birthday is October...wonder what's that's gonna look like. 

  10. My PS4 decided to die today. I tried several things, but none of them worked. :( Feel extremely frustrated. Don’t really want to go without until the PS5, so trying to figure something out.

      @Masamune I backed it up every time I stopped playing. You don't have to worry. :) If I had to do it over, I'd just quit. xD 

    3. MaximumOverdrive

      MaximumOverdrive

      Really sorry about your PS4. 😕

      How old is it? 

    4. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      I'm just seeing this now. I'm sorry it broke.

  11. It's Friday again? Damn, where did the time go? xD Anyway, my plan is to finally start Maneater this weekend if the new update drops. If not, I will finish League of Evil finally. It's been sitting unfinished for over a year and a half, but I digress. I'll start another one of my summer list games while I wait. What about everyone else?

      Staying home. As for games:

      PS4: Mafia 2 (PS4 version), which is every bit as sloppy a remake as they say. Fire Pro Wrestling World, trying my luck with Mission Mode. Extremely difficult but not giving up! May buy Star Wars Episode I Racer, money permitting.

      Switch: Fire Emblem Three Houses and Clubhouse Games.

    3. Copanele

      For Saturday I will take a small break from gaming and just relax at the countryside in nature. 

      Sunday I will play Titan Quest for the good ol' times. 

      Should reinstall Diablo 2 one day on the laptop... In a mood to play the classics lately.

      Listen to G-Eazy's new album Everything's Strange Here.

  12. To all the dads out there...

  13. Happy Friday! All I know that I’m doing for sure this weekend is celebrating my dad’s birthday and Father’s Day on Sunday. The rest is unknown. What about the rest of you?

      I will tactically collect remaining badges with 5 shadow in Japan. I guess i could simple write down what i am playing, but i find it more fun this way.

      Check up on my backlog and see if I can make adjustments.

      I forgot it was Friday. :P

       

      I finished FFXIII earlier today, I decided to jump straight into XIII-2 (aka, Final Fantasy XIII: Pokemon Edition) afterwords too. xD Other than that, may do another BBQ for Father's Day (did the same on Mother's Day), but the weather is calling for rain/storms, so I guess we'll see. :hmm:

  14. The EA Play didn't disappoint me. My expectations were near zero, though, so would've been hard to. xD 

    1. XchocomanX

      XchocomanX

      I was expecting lots of surprise mechanics. I'm severely disappointing at the lack of 'em  😡😂

      Will there be new FIFA this year? 🙃

    3. MaximumOverdrive

      MaximumOverdrive

      @ihadalifeb4this That's pretty obvious. Every year. 

  15. I turned on my PS4, then left the room for a few minutes. I returned and couldn't remember why I turned it on, so I turned it back off. I hate when that happens.

      Thought you were gonna make a jab about my angst over Bomberman. xD 

  16. Instead of starting Maneater last night, started cleaning my game room. Finished it today. Should make things more enjoyable.

      @MidnightDragon, mine often looks like a tornado hit it. My baby loves to pull all my games off their shelves and pull cables, etc out of drawers 😄

      I try to keep my gaming area fairly clean, my desk can end up getting a lot of clutter on it though... & I don't dust near as much as I should (but I keep it so dark in here, it's hard to see all the dust). 😅

  17. It’s Friday once more! Once again thanks to @Masamune for subbing for me last week. Anyway, not really sure what I’m doing this weekend. Probably will start Maneater Sunday. My Switch took up most of my attention last week. What about the rest of you?

      Playing Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet and hopefully get the last two endings and maybe master some of the gun types. at the rate I'm going, I might have plat it before the next SAO game: Alicization Lycoris comes out next month.

      So it looks like I reclaimed my account "ee28max". Now I just gotta change the ID and then I'm good to go. 

      I've been on a music album spree lately as well. This weekend goes to B.o.B (Adventures of Bobby Ray [2010] - Ether [2017]).

      Yesterday was a crazy day. Didn't wake up till almost 11, and then was out of town for most of the afternoon. But I started feeling like I really needed a break from RE2, after doing 3 full playthroughs in a row. One being an S Rank on Standard, which was pretty tough. I still need to do like, 4-5 more runs. :/ And these games still terrify me, so I switched to something less.. scary.

       

      That being Kotodama, one of many games I ordered from GameStop last week. Damn them, and these 50% off sales! :shakefist: Anyways, now I'm stripping the clothes off of students to expose the "truth." It's not as bad as some games of this nature, and only earned a T rating. But yeah, it's not something you'd want to play in public. :ninja:

  18. Enjoyed the PS5 showcase. I will say I think the console looks a bit strange. Hope it comes in black eventually since white is such a dust magnet.

  19. Currently playing: New Super Lucky’s Tale (Switch)

    Up next: Maneater

  20. Considering getting Black Desert soon. Is it worth my money/time? Saw it’s part of the Days of Play sale.

      It's kinda a long grind and online based.  If you like the gameplay style, it's worth it, I suppose.

  21. I realize I forgot to do my May update on my gaming goals yesterday. That being said, I did so little that I don’t feel an update is worth it. I’ll do my next one at the end of this month. Should have more to report.

    1. XchocomanX

      Isn't your goal to finish Bomberman? lol

      Still chipping away at it, huh? When I was doing Mugen Souls, one of the things that helped pass the time the most was watching anime during the grinding... I watched close to 50 different series during all that. 😂 Music is a good alternative if the grinding requires more active attention though (something kinda fast-paced to keep you fairly alert). :hmm:

    3. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      @Masamune I can AFK grind, but it doesn't go quite as fast. So when I'm actively grinding, I listen to music. I must be a fucking masochist or something. xD 

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      If you're a masochist, you need to get Mugen Souls & Star Ocean 4, they only take 300-400 hours each. :awesome:

       

      Sanity is overrated, who needs it? QiQotQR.gif

  23. It’s the weekend. Hope everyone is staying safe. I’m working more on Super Bomberman R. If I could turn back the clock, I wouldn’t have started this, but what’s done is done. If the plat isn’t in my hands Monday, it’s going on hold for a few weeks starting Tuesday. And next week @Masamune will be doing this update since I’ll be unavailable for the day. What about you all?

      Won't be for a long time. I got The Evil Within, Days Gone, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to play, among others. If a game is short and one I can do in a couple days, I occasionally buy one of those titles from the PS Store. But I don't buy time consuming platinums until I have at least a couple finished.

       

      So for instance, finishing Marvel's Spider-Man enabled me to buy Watch Dogs 1 and it's DLC. That's the general rule of thumb I go by, because too many time consuming plats means I'm not going to finish them anytime soon. It's bad enough for me already.

    3. MidnightDragon

      MidnightDragon

      Fair enough.

    4. MaximumOverdrive

      MaximumOverdrive

      Do some preparations for the new PSN account and listen to Kygo's new album "Golden Hour"

  24. Hoping the Super Bomberman R slog goes a bit quicker now. Got my new turbo controller in the mail today.

      Yay turbo!!

  25. Happy Friday and, for those in the US, Happy Memorial Day weekend! I will continue on with my Super Bomberman R grind. Not the most fun thing in the world, but I don't really feel like playing anything else. If I did, I would do that instead. I'll continue to think about what I want to play for my summer challenge list. May give the Switch some attention since I failed to do so last weekend. I'm also scheduled to work some. What about the rest of you?

      Finally visiting the family after 3 months and after that trying to learn Dragon Ball FighterZ. Still not sure if I like the game yet, so far I wasn't super impressed.

      Revisiting an old crap-fest-but-then-again-that-is-the-point Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard :eyebrow:

      Not for long, though, since many many games await for my arrival!

       

      Personal life wise, it's work weekend for me, again. Summer vacation is just a shy month away, so yay

      for me and the offspring (kids, not the band. Band Offspring is also great). And ice cream :dance:

      Well done! 💯 

      Sorry, wrong status and wrong reply. 

       

      I guess the weekend is already over, so what did I do? I just went shopping and pretty much relaxed all weekend long.
