What's the latest on PS5 acquisition? My uncle is going nuts trying to get one at retail.
Best Buy had them in stock the other day. It actually made headlines because of that, lol.

Status Quo. Until the microchip situation clears up, not likely to improve. Best bet is to follow Wario64 on Twitter and try your best with each drop. I eventually got lucky that way.

Retail is a waste of time unless it is announced ahead of time they will have them - in which case people will be camping out a day ahead of time.

This. They are still basically non-existent unless you get lucky or follow twitter.

Sorry, by 'retail' I meant MSRP, not resellers.

If you look at the sales trends on StockX, PS5 price is near its lowest point since release at round $715 (lowest ever was $670). It's trending up. Meanwhile Series X lowest point was $624 and it's also trending up currently around $708.

Yes, that game is a blast, but I find myself taking long breaks from playing.

That reminds me that I originally played it when it was new, and there have been multiple DLCs since then that I haven't played.

The trailer for Silksong came out close to two years ago. I hope we hear more soon on the release date for the sequel.

Do it. It looks incredible on the PS5 and a 4k TV with HDR etc. Plus the improved 60FPS etc.

Yeah, the jump to high refresh rate is amazing. Especially from 720p!

Your mouse feel might be off, so be sure to adjust the sensitivity if you haven’t already.

I must admit, I always liked the "mow the lawn" minigames years ago when I was playing Bully (IMO a highly underrated game that desperately needs a sequel). But I don't think I'd buy a whole game on lawn mowing.

If that’s coming to GamePass, I’m 100% playing it.

Speaking of, I’m giving ME: Andromeda another shot, as I currently have nothing else to play. It’s still just okay, but I guess it’s helping pass some time.

This is odd considering Tiger just signed the PGA2K deal. Interesting

2k is good. Kindly drown in a water hazard, EA.

Isn't 2K off of that gold club game originally? I enjoyed that course maker.

EA sucks because they throw money at these associations and then develop just straight trash or at best sub-par games.

Yes. 2K sports actually purchased the Golf Clubs studio with the Tiger Woods news, so I'd imagine that one is only going to get better. Suppose competition is good though

Competition is good until EA buys an exclusive license and shuts everyone else out, then puts out trash every year.
