Wallet obliterated by PSVR Iron man bundle.

Spoken like a non-fan.

So basically Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding are the only two potential wallet threats for me. I’m hoping to wait on sales for both of those.

Grounded could be interesting, comes with Game Pass, so I’ll be checking that out. Rogue Legacy 2 could be worth looking into maybe.

Annoying that the Move controllers didn’t come with charging cables.

Wii? What year is this!?

I’ve heard nothing but Very Positive things about the first game. I never played it, but maybe a sequel will change that. It’s billed as:

Everyone’s favorite laid-back dungeon crawler returns in Soda Dungeon 2. Featuring a new adventure, a whole town to upgrade, crafting, new classes, alternate dimensions, and more! It’s everything you loved about the original plus all the stuff you’ve been asking for.



We have an idler thread around here somewhere. Maybe their wallet won’t be safe around this new free-to-play game.

Wow, didn’t even know this was a thing. I recall enjoying the one, so this bears looking into.

This week is the first Red week for me in a while. Death Stranding, Ghosts of Tsushima, Paper Mario. I’m holding off on DS until I see how the port turns out and if it’s moddable, but the others are almost certainly day one.

My recent boards games kick has been keeping me away from sales and new releases. My wallet should be safe, but we shall see.

Early reports from places like RPS suggest the port is great. Dunno about mods though.

PC Gamer also confirmed it’s a good port a couple weeks back. Mods are still an open question, though.

FFS. The game’s been out for nearly a year.

Not for PC.

Game will be out tomorrow anyway, so there’s that.

Sure, but if they’re worried about spoilers, it’s a bit late for that. It’s a bonkers restriction.

I didnt think about modding at all. If a mod scene develops on the DS engine, that could really blow it wide open. There are a lot of possibilities there.

Avoid at all cost. Terrible, terrible piece of crap that’s got nothing to do with the other games.

July 16th also has a American Truck Simulator DLC coming out (Idaho).

Though I suppose I’ll be too busy delivering packages in a slightly different way, in what Tim Rogers called “the Gran Turismo of walking simulators”. Yeah. ;)

I was keen on Death Stranding, having skipped the PS4 in favour of PC, but it’s really expensive. Now I wait for sale!

Ghosts of Tsushima looks cool, we’ll see what reviews say in 12 hours.

Paper Mario I will probably get too, unless the reviews are bad.

Wow, GiantBomb talked about the Death Stranding review screenshot thing. It’s even more bonkers than PC Gamer made it sound. Seems to be tied into Valve promotional stuff, so it’s not just dumb, it’s ethically icky.
