    Don't forget the PS2 classics too!

    I want to try out PlayStation VR, but looking at the announced line up, nothing really grabs me so far, let alone enough to drop the $550 or whatever it is on the unit (A PS4 is about $300 here for reference).

    I don't know if I'm just getting older, or more jaded but I'm getting less and less enthused about new releases and video games in general, I am excited for the new Pokémon and the new Resident Evil though, REVII is closer to what I was hoping The Evil Within would deliver.

    I finally got Overwatch for the PC and am retiring from the PS4 version!

    Widowmaker has never been funner, and i'm glad I'm actually getting better at playing Sniper. Just wish she was stronger somehow

    I fired up Minecraft the other day to kill sometime and I've been sucked back in, now if only I could build things that actually looked good...

    Where is the witty pitch video! I can't read all of that!

    I played through 'Reigns' the other night, it was really cool, probably a better experience on a mobile/touch device than with a mouse. I didn't really feel like replaying it for the other ending/s but we'll see, maybe some time.

    I might give Undertale a go sometime soon, I've had that sitting in my Steam library for a while now.

    Yeah, I have that one... it's good but not the life-changing experience some people make it out to be. Do you already know the way to play?

    Nope, I don't know anything about it, other than the ridiculous amount of hype/praise it has generated. I don't really have any expectations of it myself though.

    Really, nothing at all? I feel like I shouldn't say anything then XD

    EDIT: and why don't I post some screenshots from the "Hakkun" translation I've been working on:

    SutteHakkunNp.F450 - work-20161027-204924.png SutteHakkunNp.F450 - work-20161027-204911.png SutteHakkunNp.F450 - work-20161027-204819.png SutteHakkunNp.F450 - work-20161027-204836.png

    Generally, anything in all-caps was already in English, and the mixed-case stuff is new.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how I've managed to remain completely oblivious to the specifics of the game all this time.

    I know there is a skeleton, that is about it.

    I'm currently playing 'Until Dawn' on the PS4 Pro. It's strange seeing Rami Malek outside of his 'Mr. Robot' persona.

    Pokémon Moon!

    I went to the midnight launch here, it was the first one I've ever been too!

    Is anyone else playing? What start did you choose?

    @faith strong-armed me into playing so I'm getting PKMN Sun. I'm going to be the most popular guy around since I'm the only person I've even heard of who's buying Sun.

    I'll be playing, I think I requested Sun, but I don't remember ^^; Most of the people I know are playing both in tandem (and in most cases on 2 different 3DS' because that's apparently something that people do o_O )

    I picked up my copy at Nintendo World and they had a whole pile of double-packs for people who wanted to buy both at once, so I guess it's popular ::kozi::

    he's right you know. About most of the people you know being nerds...X2.

    He is not, however, right about me roping him into it.

    So far Pokemon Sun is mostly about petting your cat XD I'm still kind of in the tutorial phase though, I've unlocked a few things like clothes and stuff, and had a few fights, but I think I'm not fully "into it" yet.

    But right now I've been working on hacking the ending for "Hakkun" ::batsu:: There's an elaborate penalty system for anyone weak enough to use hints XD

    So, has anyone ever actually gotten a streetpass IRL? XD I hauled the DS all around midtown today and got nothing.

    I might get one or two if I'm really lucky. We do have a special StreetPass meetup in the city that is held monthly, I can usually get 20+ hits at those.

    I get streetpasses all the time when I bring my DS out with me. I tend to get the most when I'm in Little Tokyo ::meev::
