  • So this past Thursday Xbox had the Series X Games Showcase where they showed nothing but games. Here are some of the games they showed Xbox Series X games list: every exclusive and cross-gen game just announced 
    • What were some of your favorite trailers or announcements? 
      • Tetris Effect: Connected – because of the art style of the trailer more than maybe the game itself. 
      • As Dusk Falls: Like Telltale games interactive story, but with a really cool art style. 
      • State of Decay 3: F@cking Crazy Zombie Deer, right?!!
      • Everwild: Don’t understand it, but again, the art style is soothing? – Feels relaxing and interesting to me. 
        • I could say the exact same thing about The Gunk, but not as relaxing. The Gunk stuff… is it an enemy, pollution from an enemy, something odd. 
      • Fable: Funny, beautiful trailer, but nothing to really give you an idea of what the actual game is going to look like. 
      • Cool looking, dark maybe a Left for Dead with awesome graphics type of game with the worst name. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide 
      • S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 – another cool trailer, not sure what gameplay will be like, but a sequel to a 10 year old PC horror survival game 
      • Psychonauts 2 – just looks trippy, warning do NOT drop acid and play this game. 
      • The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon 
      • Crossfire X – the campaign looked very COD meets Crysis – which is good I guess. I SAW a half a second of aim down sites, WTF does this game have against ADS? (I didn’t even want to finish the free to play MP demo that they released because of it.)
      • HALO INFINITE: First, Loved the warthog, 60 FPS smooth, grapple? My son said it best “If you can’t have fun playing with a grapple in a video game, there is something wrong with you” (paraphrasing). Graphics stayed with the previous style wrong or right; they didn’t completely change that vibe. 
  • Anything you thought you’d see but didn’t?
  • When are Sony and Xbox going to announce the price, pre-orders and release dates?
  • Hate spilleth over from the normal channels. Console-Derangement-Syndrome is real. Omg, it’s so funny to see the crazy negativity and complete b.s.
  • I liked Scorn, The Medium, and it seems like survival horror is going to be good again. So many great games to look forward too… who could be unhappy about that? oh yeah, console derangement syndrome. 

Our World (Top Things you saw, heard or played) 

Call of Duty, Writing another song – love my studio/office, big rolls of hay and baby goats, Got a new phone!, took apart an xbox one controller and fixed the left thumbstick, still have to clean the right it seems. Found two Day One edition Xbox One controllers going to work on them next.           

Built a deck for the new pool, broke a toe, trying to maintain some sense of normalcy (struggling), really struggling with how rude and crappy people are getting in public, feels like I’m working harder than ever at work, really miss you fellas

  • Eh just not feeling any of it. Shortened college season, limited tickets, cardboard cutouts at MLB and kneeling, NFL just seems to be probably following the same thing… just has me feeling no. This isn’t my year.
