I subscribed to a month of EA Premier so I could play the Legion of Dawn Edition of Anthem starting today. The low, low cost of $14.99 instead of $80 - $100.

I figure if I like it after a month I'll cancel the Premier membership and buy it at the bargain bin price.

I may also check out Titanfall 2, I hear the Single player campaign was excellent.

Finishing Draqon Quest XI, more Shadow of the Tomb Raider. More KH3, trying to dig into RE2.

Likely more Ace Combat 7: Unknown Skies (PS4), Battlefield V (PC) and Apex Legends (PC). Tempted to sign up for a month trial of EA Premier or Xbox Game Pass to play Anthem and Crackdown 3, but I will likely not bother because then I will get spammed all the time to resubscribe.

How are you liking Shadow of the Tomb Raider? I normally play a single-player game from beginning to end without playing anything else at the same time, but I found Lara so insufferable in this game, that it took me a month to complete it. I just could not spend more than an hour in that game before I felt so genuinely annoyed that I had to do play something else.

Playing some Crackdown 3. If you enjoyed 1 and 2 it is more of the same. If you hated them, then you will hate 3. I am basically killing time until Anthem and Division 2 come out.

Apex Legends is fun in small doses.

Having lots of fun playing Far Cry: New Dawn today. Yes, it's much of the same, but not quite as annoying on the boss exposition, and I like the home base building part.

I'm currently drinking and writing my resignation letter. Once I finish that (the letter, that is), I'm probably going to chip away at my 3rd playthrough of the RE2 REmake, then some Hitman 2, then more Frostpunk.

On the plus side, I will soon likely have a lot of time to catch up on my backlog.

I've been there man. Last month I tried to quit my job, but my boss talked me into staying. Two weeks later I tried to quit again, and that time it worked. An hour later my former boss called me. He didn't want me to leave the industry, and had found me a job with a friend of his at another company. I'm doing that now.

Best of luck.

I really like the Xbox Game Pass.

I have the Origin pass thing so I'll play Anthem and keep playing BF5.

I also got Far Cry New Dawn and TBH that will take most of my time because Far Cry games are the shit and this one is great as well.

But I also can't stop playing DUSK. That game is like an old friend that I want to spend time with. I seriously love it and wish I had found it earlier. Check it out for real if you're over the age of 35-ish. It's better than our FPS games from back in the day, while also the same.

Splitting my time between Witcher 3, classic Doom and a new source port of Blood called NBlood. So far it works flawlessly compared to the dosbox version sold on GOG. Quick and easy setting up and playing.

I usually start out my weekend with Heroes of the Storm and I play that until I run out of stuff to watch on TV (I have to catch up on Discovery, Top Chef and The Passage) and then I’ll switch to the console. Most likely I’ll play Shadow of War this weekend. I just started it.

Great fun, but when there is an alert you just get mobbed to heck and back by random Orcs.

Playing/Regretting Metro: Exodus
The controls are sloppy and I might wait for a patch before continuing.

Buying a Switch today but can't figure out what game to get.

Breath of the Wild if you haven't played it. Thats my recommendation.

If you like JRPGs, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a good choice. Mario Odyssey. If you didn't have a WiiU, you can't go wrong with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Smash Bros Ultimate is great too.
