    My wife allowed me to get a new computer with our stimulus money. I know I should be building all this myself like a cool kid but I went with a prebuilt from a new company called Redux because a) I don't want to build one myself, b) it's impossible to actually get a graphics card without overpaying unless you order through a builder and c) Redux has had good reviews from people online.

    Looking forward to putting warp pipes on my island after the Animal Crossing Mario update comes live on March 1. But I am just not sure where to put the pipes....
    Put the mushroom mural wallpaper in my turnip storage room.

    Dreaded 5 post.

    Received my copy of Disgaea 6 (jp). Don't need to know the language to play if you've ever played previous ones. US version isn't until June.

    PS5 disc drive sounds like a jet engine. You'd think they could figure that out. But other than that I don't have any complaints so far.

    MSFT charged me yesterday, so i guess my XSX pre-order is official. Good to know either way.

    Dug in to EQ and it brought back all good feels from 20 yrs ago.

    Out of nostalgia I set up a private Everquest server. Works great, surprisingly.

    If you'd be interested in playing let me know. I can get you the deets.

    I think it’s mostly just due to the lifespan of the console coming to an end. But yeah, the only real tech leaps are using SSDs for storage and better functionality at 4K.

    Gameswise it’s really strange, most AAA titles have switched to a more long term model like GTAV and Destiny 2 so there’s nothing really new and exciting that’s coming out.

    The release day games last gen werent anything special either.

    Only Nintendo seems to have day 1 games that show off the new hardware.

    I'll be happy if the new ones can actually deliver 4k/60fps consistently. Because last gen 4k wasnt it.

    We are about 18 days from the launch of new consoles. Wheres the hype!? The wife and I were able by some miracle to pre-order both.

    I already have a backlog of games, but i am anxious to play Cyberpunk 2077 (19th) on the new consoles.

    Queued up currently are: Baldur's Gate 3, SW Squadrons, Snow Runner, Persona 4 Golden, Leisure Suit Larry, PGA 2K21, and MS Flight Simulator.

    So the XBOX app has been refreshed for the coming of the new console, and its way better than the old versions. Also included in the app is the ability to locally stream from your XBOX to your phone running the app, for gaming on the (kind of but not really) go.

    The Game Pass app will have xStreaming as an option which allows true remote game play of select games.
