Cured my vampire-ism in Skyrim. Thankfully you can run about in the daylight unlike Oblivion so it wasn't as bad. Though it included a massive cross country trek to get to Winterfold, then to find Morthor. And no one mentions that you have to ask for rumours at Morthor - Morthal? at the pub before Falion will cure you.

Really enjoying the game now, it's huge. The map isn't too bad - except for mountains with no paths and no climbing ability. But the sheer density of people and stories to delve into feels like I could play it all year.

One thing I don't like is whenever I kill a dragon, the bones weigh so much I become overencumbered and have to ditch stuff. I hired a merc who I can offload stuff too, but even with his carrying weight I can still have too much stuff. And when I want to sell it in a town I have to visit multiple merchants in various places to sell different things to. And they often run out of cash, so it gets monotonous.

There is a potion that can temporarily increase your max carrying weight.

I hired a merc to offload goods too. And got a thrall to keep stuff too. Sometimes its still not enough. Those damned dragon bones.

After playing with the Super NT for a few hours, I am totally happy I made the purchase.

So much better than the Retron 5 or even the really good emulators. It really is like having a modern day Snes with HDMI support. It's powered by a USB cable so you don't even have to plug it into a wall. I plugged it into the front of my PS4 Pro and the Super NT worked just fine. It's also got some weight to it for such a small device. It weighs about as much as a Dreamcast. So it doesn't slide around and fall off your table or anything.

All kinds of cool graphic, sound, and menu options. Basically the type of stuff you'd get in an emulator, but in an actual set box that works exactly how it's supposed to all the time. You can even change system menu and power LED to match either the USA or PAL regions colors.

I played a bit a Super Turrican built onto the system, which is beautiful and runs fantastic. And I also played some F-Zero....plugged my cart in and game instantly boots up just like the good ol' Snes. Only it looks and sounds much better.

There's already an early firmware hack that let's you load roms onto an SD card that just came out today, and possible Genesis support coming down the road too.

I'm totally glad I went for this instead of the Snes Classic...yeah it's like twice the price, but you get what you pay for. Or a lot MORE than what you pay for, really.

Image result for super nt everdrive

This is the one I got. I didn't get a controller though since I already had a nice Snes pad that works fine on it.

Beat Miraak in Skyrim. I can't decide whether I liked his weird other world sections or not. Feels weird in this very grounded world to go to some green glowing world with a million books. Then having the blob from outer space control you.

Did this huuuuge underground Dwarven city thing in Skyrim. Wish the map was better. It was fun but bordering on unmanagable. Everything was so dark too.

Even with my 3 characters, I still have to visit multiple shops in multiple towns to sell it all.

Man, I have been so hooked on Monster Hunter World. It’s like crack. You could say that I love me the Monster crack. LOL

At first I tried the sword and shield then a little bit of the great sword but I have really taken to using the insect glaive. I love the mobility that it gives you in combat and how it makes it easier to mount monsters. You can use the insect to get different buffs to attack and defense or replenish health. The insect also leaves dust behind after hitting the monster which can hit with your weapon and trigger different effects like poison or blast. I really like using the blast myself and hitting the monsters with extra damage.

It's really good. It did feel a bit samey at first but there's so much content I could play it all year. One thing I find weird is now I can take dragons, fly them and not much else? The controls are really bad for flight too.

Yeah I played through the game on the 360 and really enjoyed it. Really liked just exploring around the world.

I am back to Mass Effect Andromeda. Might as well finish it. Gameplay is fantastic, lots of the rest has issues but for $10 its a steal.

Saw Black Panther, awesome movie.

Played Doki Doki Literature Club, fuck everyone who says its a hidden gem. Fuck you.

Andromeda was kind of boring or maybe I’m just tired of the ME formula.  I need to get back to Samus Returns but I’m having a ton of fun with the Riddler challenges in Arkham City.

I’m wondering if Mirror’s Edge is even worth its discount.

Fuckin A. Uncharted Lost Legacy is absolutely incredible looking. Technically and artistically this is the best looking game of the generation.

I second this motion! Catalyst was fantastic, it's a great game and it plays sooooooo much better than its predecessor.
