    Nothing for me this week.

    Just as an FYI, and maybe being a bit pedantic, when I work on long forum posts I occasionally do a Cntl+A to highlight the text, Cntl+C to copy and then Cntl+V to paste it into an empty .txt file. I picked up this habit a few years ago when I had a situation of my internet being wonky and losing a few of what I'm sure were extremely erudite and profound forum posts. Or so I tell myself :)

    Went from curiously optimistic to psyched as hell for God of War! Is anyone getting the Deluxe version? It doesn't seem worth it, but I'm curious what others think.

    I'm also getting the Pinball FX3 Last Jedi table.

    FX3 tables used to be a day one purchase. I was so underwhelmed by the last few, that this one goes on the back burner for now.

    I admit, it may be more of a habit than a desire, but I do still enjoy the series.

    God of War will go on the someday list. My birthday is next month so maybe I'll let someone else buy it for me. It would have been a total pass, but the hype got me to watch one video covering it and I think I have to get it.

    I am still finishing up Kingdom Come Deliverance and with Battletech hitting next week I don't have time for it right now.

    I bought GHOST RECON: WILDLANDS, so Ubisoft's free weekend promotion worked on me.

    I never realized it was open world, or I'd have probably been more interested at launch. I understand the good-not-great reviews because like all Ubisoft open world games it can get a little repetitive, but I'm having a blast with it. For the price, it's been a nice little filler until Far Cry 5 goes on sale.

    Yeah, that game is really good! I should actually go back to it, I think it satisfies my open world desires much better than Far Cry 5 does. Or at least gives more options for stealth and observation that I felt were missing in FC5.

    Then, for some reason I upgraded the the PS4 Pro bundle. I don't even have a 4k tv so I know I won't notice much difference but it looked so pretty.....

    I wasn’t planning on getting God of War but then I saw the excitement here and started reading the reviews.

    I have limited willpower to begin with but after all that I was just searching for the best way to buy it lol. Ended up preordering the Collectors Edition from Best Buy, which claims I can pick it up on Friday. Otherwise I was ready to go with the Stone Mason edition but Amazon had a poor delivery date.

    Yakuza 6!

    A curse and blight be upon each of you that refuses to buy this game.......unless you haven't played Yakuza 0-5.

    BUT an even greater curse be upon each of you that has not played the remarkable Yakuza 0!
