    I've been keeping an eye on Frozen Synapse 2 and Megaquarium, so I might be picking one of those up.

    Goddamn it.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider XB1.

    I have a training course all next weekend to get my CanFitPro cert (to be a personal trainer after-hours).

    To pay for my Jeep addiction. And my video game collector bug. and my kid. And … and... I still have a business to start.

    Goddamn it. I should just stay away from screens.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is pre-ordered and ready to go.

    I will get around to the Hat in Time DLC someday, but there's too much to game right now.

    Trying to avoid buying anything this week, and actually finishing (or at least making progress in) once of the multiple games I've purchased over the last few weeks.

    If you grab that Hat in Time DLC within the first day it's free! So even if you don't plan on playing it for a while, grab it in those first 24 hours!

    I will probably get NHL 19 eventually. Probably next spring when it goes on a $20 sale, just like I've done the last two years.

    I knew it was free for owners of the game, but didn't realize it was only for a limited time. Thanks for the heads up!

    Dammit, there's just too many games and I'm probably going to cave. Especially since DQ XI isn't really grabbing me. Can't decide if I want to go with Spider Man, Tomb Raider, or wait for the new Assassin's Creed.

    Tomb Raider seemed like a pretty obvious choice (as I liked both previous games), but a couple reviews that criticize the screwy stealth mechanics (the Gamespot one, especially) are giving me significant pause. Nothing ruins a game for me quicker than uneven or "squishy" stealth mechanics, Dishonored 2 and the latest Styx games being perfect examples. It also looks a bit same-y, like I've played it all before in previous installments. Still, the gameplay from previous games has been awfully good.

    I watched the ACG review of Spider Man last night, and have to admit that it looks like a hell of a lot of fun. My general aversion to open world might be mitigated by what looks like the funnest travel system ever made.

    The new AC looks neat, but I'm currently in the process of wrapping up AC Origins in the next couple days, and might need a bit of a break from that formula.

    So, leaning towards Spider Man at this point...

    i picked up spider-man and it is quite fun. I am feeling overload when I look at how huge the map is and all the collectibles, etc. but it is fun to play. I am going to try sticking to doing one story mission a night and they collectibles. Hopefully I won't get burned out then because of all the stuff you can do.

    The beauty of this time of year is that once I finish spider-man I should be able to trade or buy tomb raider, dragon quest 11, or assassins creed.

    Yeah, the Co-op DLC is free forever I think, but the Seal the Deal expansion is only free for the first 24 hours. And it went live today, so go grab it! :)

    From what I have read of the comments on the GS review it was a poor review. I am waiting for trusted reviewers (such as people from this forum) as long as possible though. I really liked the other two and I was really looking forward to this one.
