    I’ve never heard of the Fist of the North series, but I LOVE the Yakuza games. So, I bought FotNS and it’s pretty good! It doesn’t use the Dragon Engine, but it’s okay, I liked the Yakuza 0 game the best anyhow. The story seems decent and the fighting is easy as pie, but that’s what you want when you’re pretending to be a BA anyhow, right? Worth a play-through for sure!

Astro Bot for me this week. So pumped for a high quality VR game to play!

    I’m ready for that game too! I think that the PSVR should be used for more platforming and table-top games. I don’t want to be standing up and shooting people all the time, it gets to be tiring. I want to sit down and enjoy looking down at a virtual world without breaking my neck to aim at things on the ceiling!

Do more sales for PS Vita games. Gravity Rush and Uncharted Golden Abyss received discounts more than a year ago.

Don’t sleep on Fist of the North Star. It’s a brawler in the vein of the Yakuza series. I’m in for Megaman 11. I would like to play Astro Bot too. But, I sold my PSVR earlier this year due to the slow progression. However, with the recent surge of quality, I may jump back in given a good Black Friday sale. Logic’s Young Sinatra 4 is a rap album of the year contender. My picks this week.

Man what a packed week. I’m picking up:

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Astro Bot Rescue Mission
Fist of the North Star
Mega Man 11

Don’t know where I’ll find the time to play them but it’s a heck of a week.

    You can always take a two-month vacation like I have! Sure, you can’t have a partner or eat very well, but GAMES! I blame my parents for bringing an Atari 2600 in the house back in the 70s. Honest question though, was Assassin’s Creed: Origins laggy on the PS4? I played that one on the PC and it was buttery smooth, I want to make sure it’s that way for Odyssey.

Thanks to whomever choose Friday the 13th as a free game! I’ve been curious about that game since the inception and I never wanted to take the monetary plunge. You guys rock!
