What the hell is going on with console exclusives this generation? These consoles have been released for a while now, and there still seems to be no major exclusives for Sony or Xbox. Really seems like there's no reason to buy a console, except maybe the Switch, especially when Playstation and Xbox exclusives are going to PC too.

Well shit the pulse headset was what was added to my cart I guess as part of a bundle that I wanted to return because it was 130 bucks. That said I did some reading after I received it and I'm intrigued. I think maybe I will keep it! I'd buy Returnal but I decided to by some GME shares as well lol. I did just buy It Takes Two tho because I want to play with my fiancee.

It's kind of why I was ok waiting. I did read that issue with supply might last through the year so I figured fuck it, might as well get one now.

Horizon and God of War are later this year and I'm sure both will be incredible. The biggest issue will be that they are being released on PS4 as well. Until these games are exclusive to next gen they won't be as good as they could be.

I did start Control today and you are correct, it looks beautiful. My kid and I were having fun playing Wreckfest this morning, I think it was a free game a couple months ago. Also been playing the Chivalry 2 beta which is a whole lot of fun.

Completely agree. It was a really well done celebration of playstation while also doing a good job showing off what the controller can do

Man. Epic Store has made me completely gunshy about buying any games anymore. Almost bought Frostpunk like 10 times in the last few months, now they give it away for free.

I finished the whole Mass Effect remastered trilogy. I really enjoyed diving back into it after all these years. The ending of 3 still isn't great but as a whole still probably my favorite gaming trilogy.

I just hate how the gameplay gets worse with each iteration as it turns more and more into an action shooter than an RPG.

Oh, another one I almost dropped $30+ on is free. Control. Never pay for PC games, I suppose.

I love Returnal but R&C is the safer purchase. Returnal is a love it or hate it kinda of game. It's a brutal hard game.

To be fair, Control is like two years old though. I usually always wait for a good sale before buying a game because they tend to go on sale fast on PC with so many stores and regular sales, so I generally don't feel bad if a couple years later it's free on Epic Game Store. They've had some solid free games, but also a lot of clunkers too.

With all the subscription pass type services though, I rarely ever pay more than $15 for a game. That and a lot of the really good games are smaller, indie games that don't charge insane amounts of money to buy.

I just got Going Medieval (hit new indie game) for $12 on Epic Game Store though with a $10 off coupon and it being 10% off. Pretty crazy for a game that released June 1st.

It let's you skip puzzles if you want. That alone makes it my GOTY.
